It's playing at the Beverly Center in West Hollywood here. I am hoping to see it early next week.
The trailer looks great. If I can get past Jemaine's haircut. Haha. It sounds to me from what some of you are saying with its emotional/uncomfortable/comedy that it's somewhat reminiscent of "Little Miss Sunshine" in the way it has some deeply disturbing and heartfelt moments. Yet some bursting out funny parts. Is that the type of movie it is?
I'm just looking forward to seeing it.
Can someone tell me if the "moles" on their mouths line up and if that has something to do with how they decided they should be together? Or is that just random? Or am I just seeing things when I watch the trailer?
I think if you had to compare Eagle vs Shark
to another movie, Little Miss Sunshine
would be a more appropriate choice than Napoleon Dynamite
. In my mind, Eagle vs Shark
is more of a coming of age comedy than a romantic one, because both Lily and Jarrod are on personal journeys dealing with their own self-conceptions, and it is only when they reach the zenith of those journeys that the potential of their shared relationship can begin to blossom.
I believe the moles do line up â€“ Lilyâ€™s on her right and Jarrodâ€™s on his left. (I had to consult my movie poster for this.
) Lily mentions the moles briefly if I remember correctly, but itâ€™s not really a factor in their getting together.
Hope this helps. Enjoy the film!
