Compromise Movie

Overheard by yours truly.
Husband to wife at playground: "What movie are we going to see?"
Wife: "The Devil Wears Prada"
The husband's face falls.
(I, of course, am thinking, "Wait, on a Wednesday night they can go see a movie? Who's watching the kid? What's going on? How can I fit into their evening plans?")
(Coco, meanwhile, if you're interested, is face-down in a puddle while Madge is driving a tricycle right at him.)

Here's what needs to happen. They need to see "The Devil Wears Prada in the Caribbean." It can't be that far removed from either movie. I've seen parts of the Dead Man's Chest thingie, and, really, Davy Jones could accessorize some more. Not to mention that a Devil wearing Prada would not be any more far-fetched than the actual plot elements. And the other movie could probably use Johnny Depp. Listening to certain women, it appears that everyone could use some Johnny Depp. I'm not disagreeing.
