Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

Mmm. Stepford Wives and tuna casserole last night. What more could a girl ask for? Since hearing about the soon-to-be-released Stepford Wives remake, I’ve become obsessed with the film, so we had a little screening last night.

The first thing I thought was how much it reminded me of Rosemary’s Baby. It has the same themes: paranoia, the war between the sexes, and a husband who has (inexplicably) turned against his wife for his own selfish reasons. Well, duh. They are both based on novels by Ira Levin.

A stellar film, and I have a new cinematic hero: Paula Prentiss, who plays the feisty best friend, Bobby. Not only is she super saucy, she’s fashionable to boot (in a hot, hot pants kind of way). How can you not admire a character who says, “Two things I always carry with me: Tampax and Ring Dings.” Awww yeah.
