So here’s the problem with The Bling Ring teaser trailer. Emma Watson looks so cool and so chic in that I kinda want her to rob my house now. But only if she agrees to a few things first. Such as inviting me out with her at night and buying me at least one drink with the money she made selling all my jewels and letting me call her Hermione whenever and wherever I want. If she agrees to that, then she’s welcome to rob away. Just really go int there when I’m not home and take whatever her heart desires.
For those of you who don’t obsessively stalk Emma’s career and/or Lifetime movies that get turned into real movies by Sofia Coppola, let me tell you a little about The Bling Ring. It’s based on a true story about a bunch of Hollywood teenagers who burglarized celebrity homes between 2008 – 2009. But not like good celebrities. People like Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge and Lindsay Lohan (I think that’s the lady who played Martin in the Parent Trap movie, but I’m not 100% sure).
Lifetime really did make a movie about this already, a while ago. But it did not star anyone worth talking about. Unlike Sofia Coppola’s version which stars Emma Watson, Leslie Mann and Gavin Rossdale. Gavin Rossdale? Just go with it. Let’s not question it all and just pretend he’s an actor now. His wife gets to make phone commercials, so he gets to star in a movie every now and then. It’s only fair.
This movie’s getting most of its buzz from the fact that Emma Watson plays a horrible person. A person so horrible that she has tramp stamps and jorts and complete velour track suits. I know, I had trouble believing it too at first. But now that I’ve seen the trailer I buy the whole thing. And I think you will too.
