I have now had two weeks to process my reactions to watching the film, Water for Elephant. I needed to calm myself down to the Robe…I mean visual overload. To give you a truly objective view of this film, not just my making googly eyes at the lead, heroic male. I first want to let you know that I saw this film with fellow members of my book club. A fantastic group of intelligent, classy and funny ladies who are not crazy like me. Honestly, they would be the better people to ask, because they are completely objective. (Unlike me. Pattinson = Pretty.) They all likes it, but pointed out that some parts did deviate from the great book. They, however, are not writing this review. I am. hee hee hee.

Well...hello there, handsome!

  The film’s director knew his target audience. This guy. If you counted the amount of close-ups, he would win. The next most popular…

Friends Forever

Rosie probably was the true heroine of the film!

 
But…Reese’s costumes were lovely.
 

Oops! Got distracted by the tux!

 
I was thinking about this…
 
I want a horse, so I can wear a cool vintage outfit!
 
Oscar Winners + Good Script =
 

Always work with the best!

A win for this guy!
 
 
So overall impression…exciting, romantic and a complete movie for older women unrealistically swooning for younger men. (Thanks a bunch, Reese!) 
 

Not fair.

Or this…
 
 
To recap…Pattinson was pretty and Reese had some pretty, cute vintage clothes. Which for me, it always comes back to the clothes. sigh.

Caption THIS: Fun with Reese and Rob

SWD: Promoting the upcoming release of his new film, Water for Elephants, Mr. Pattinson has graced another magazine cover, and it’s a goodie. There are no reptiles or Parson’s hats or Amish overtones. Just ol’ fashioned Rob looking pretty with his WFE co-star, Reese.

EC: Can I just add that I saw this cover and thought, “That’s a whole lot of pretty. Oh and Reese doesn’t look too shabby either.”

Theater BAIT. Water for Elephants, fun for the whole family

They both have the most devilish smirks on their faces. What could they be thinking? How would we CAPTION THIS?

REESE: Sure, you got the elephant under control, but Cougars can't be tamed

ROB: Got MILF? I do.

REESE: Queenie likes it when you pet her.

ROB: Ah yes, to quote Ambrose Bierce, The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog.

REESE: I guess she remembers your 'little friend', Kinko

ROB: Definitely. Kinko performs well under the Big Top.

Just so we’re clear:

Queenie.

Kinko

and on that note, I’ll leave you with this:

EC: Friends, Water for Elephants is on it’s way. After seeing this cover, all the cougars and MILFs will be rejoicing in the streets. Then the Twimoms will turn in their Edward body pillows for Team Jacob teeshirts. Team Jacob the Veterinarian, not the puppy (jailbait) Jacob. What did you do Reese, what did you do! #unfairexpectationsfor30somethings

Dear WC Stacey (SWD), Water For Elephants is…

Dear WC Stacey (SWD),

I know you are embedded in the world of Scottish Outlanders, and trust me I don’t blame you a bit. The character of Jamie is absolutely brillant and swoony. However, I beg of you watch this trailer for Water for Elephants and perhaps read another chapter of the book. You WILL be Team Jacob in this one! He is a swoony male lead, as well, and a fun, crusty oldster as well.

Let's Go To The Circus!

 

Our boy has gone and grown up!

 

Honestly, Pattinson is the lead in the movie. Not giggly Twilight and Eclipse commentary Rob. You know the one, a cross between a 13 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. I mean it’s charming, somewhat funny and all, but listening to him alternates between giving a wee headache and wanting to get him a matchbox car. THIS WFE Rob is like if he grew up and became a sensitive animal doctor like in the British Show All Creatures Great and Small. (Brillant, classic British TV!)

You better run with that puppy, mister!

 

I know that you’ve mentioned that you don’t like circuses, BUT isn’t Rosie the elephant adorable? Book Rosie is EVEN cuter. Plus…THE DOG! You know you love THE DOG! Seriously, I have a pathological fear of clowns thanks to Stephen King’s IT and I still love the Depression era circus portrayed in the book. It was quite a bit seedy. But the elephant and THE DOG bring the happy for me.

Who can resist a book about a man and his trunk...I mean elephant.

 

Unfair real life expectations to all the cougars out there.

 

Also, for the Twi moms who love them some Edward and Bella…here’s a love story about a cougar and her vet. Seriously, who can resist a movie/book where the heroine is in her 30’s (Hey, Reese!) and is the romantic interest of a young, whippersnapper. What a brillant and unfair book concept. Usually, it’s the OTHER way around. Right, Gyllenhaal and Swift?

Not only, did this book get Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon attached to it, but also Oscar winner Christopher Waltz attached to it! Oscar winners love the Depression era carnies!

Hey, Robert...if you are good we'll let you join our club!

Finally, my last ditch appeal…this book lead to this picture…

How can you NOT read a book that influenced THIS picture.

Alright…as long as you watch the movie and review the movie, I’ll give you a pass on the book. I CANNOT wait for this movie!

Fondly,

EC Stacey
