This is when you begin to realise you are way too old for some films...

I want to know how many people have subjected themselves to The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement simply because Chris Pine is in it.

... just me, then?

Hey, as a bonus, there's also Callum Blue. I miss Dead Like Me.

Hey, I didn't mind the first one, but it was a story with a definite ending and it's always sad when they make sequels for films (or books) that are fine on their own (see also: Bridget Jones' Diary.)

But, mmm, Chris Pine.

I bought the damned thing for Chris Pine, and was pleasantly surprised to see Callum Blue for just the same reasons as you. I feel better about not being the only one.
9th-Aug-2009 11:48 am (UTC)
I am so glad I'm not the only one. Hahaha. Oh man.

At least he's Very Fetching all the way through, especially with the the geeky glasses.
9th-Aug-2009 11:52 am (UTC)
Very!
I bought Blind Dating too, where he's playing a blind guy looking for a girl. (Yes, yes, I know.)
It's really bad, but he's pretty good in it, and there's some angsting at one point, not to mention the scene where he drops his soap in a public shower. (Okay, that was a deleted scene, but it was on the DVD.)
I'm thinking of getting Bottle Shock as well, because it's said to be genuinely good, and it's got Allan Rickman. However, Chris Pine looks like the lost Hanson brother in it.
Oh, and I'm really looking forwards to his zombie film.

What, I'm not obsessing at all!

I do exactly the same thing for actors I really, really like. The truly terrible things I have seen in the name of fangirling.

You do not want to know what my eyes have gone through on behalf of Adam Baldwin.

You don't want to know what I watched because I had a several year long crush on Jason Marsden (not to be confused with James Marsden.)
9th-Aug-2009 11:55 am (UTC)
It's been going around my f-list, so you're far from the only one.

I am personally as immune to the charms of this Kirk as to the original, though. But you are not alone . . . .
9th-Aug-2009 11:58 am (UTC)
I loved Original Flavour. But yes, I really did love New!Kirk.
9th-Aug-2009 01:34 pm (UTC)
*sheepishly raises hand* I've subjected myself to worse movies for the sake of actors in it. x)
9th-Aug-2009 10:48 pm (UTC)
Me too, sadly.
9th-Aug-2009 02:51 pm (UTC)
I hear a lot of people have been doing that just for Chris Pine.

I can't talk, of course, because I put myself through Twilight for RPattz. At the cinema.

(In my defence: it was hilarious.)

ETA: And, actually, I only watched Anchorman for Steve Carrell.

Yay, I'm not alone.

Dude, I couldn't handle 30 minutes of Twilight. I tried. But I had to stop.
9th-Aug-2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
I've come close to subjecting myself to it for Callum Blue. But I have not yet gone to those lengths. So it's only sort of maybe just you?
9th-Aug-2009 10:54 pm (UTC)
*is evil*

Callum's rather darling in it.
10th-Aug-2009 12:01 pm (UTC)
Oh yes. Thank you. Thank you so much. You are evil. :p

I watched it well before I knew who he was (the joy of parenting young girls). But I rewatched it when I read some people I knew writing fanfic for Nicholas/Mia. *is shallow*
9th-Aug-2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
HEE.

That's sweet.
9th-Aug-2009 05:24 pm (UTC)
Callum Blue? Oh dear...

*goes to look at weekly Disney Channel guide*
10th-Aug-2009 08:56 am (UTC)
DOOOOO IIIIIIT.
9th-Aug-2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
... just me, then?

LOL, no. I watched all his other crappy films, too. Confession was painful. Blind Date was okay and he's adorable in it, even though the film itself is, well, crappy.

But he has nothing, NOTHING, on Karl-Heinz's crappy movies. Nothing can ever rival The Irrefutable Truth About Demons.
10th-Aug-2009 08:54 am (UTC)
So you recommend Blind Date, even though it's bad?
9th-Aug-2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
*raises hand*

And I watched the first one because Julie Andrews was in it.
10th-Aug-2009 08:53 am (UTC)
I too love Julie Andrews.

Which is a lot of the film, really.
10th-Aug-2009 08:38 am (UTC)
Is this the part where I admit I watched it because OMG PRINCESSES YAY? My inner eight-year-old is poorly suppressed.

...if Chris Fine is in it, I bet I can get people to rewatch it with me!
10th-Aug-2009 08:50 am (UTC)
HEE.

I've never been into princesses, so, you know ;)
