-Film: Finding Amanda
-Amount of Screentime: Grand total of ACTUAL screentime? Less than ten minutes. Amount of time dedicated to talking about what a jerk he is? A bit more than that.
-Summary in Fifty Words or Less: PFach shows off some serious acting chops by playing the Douchiest Douche in All the Land, Greg. He mooches off his girlfriend Amanda, acts like a bratty toddler, wastes a nice red wine, and HITS HIS WOMAN. How can someone so sweet act so bad???
Well, this certainly wasn’t the movie we thought it would be. Brittany Snow is so cute and perky and earnest in the trailer, we thought surely this would be a semi-comedy with Matthew Broderick playing the straight man. Turns out it’s a bit darker than that, though. As cute and perky as she may be, the Amanda of the title is definitely AmanDUH 2.0 (just swap out prom queen for Vegas hooker). One thing remained true, though…OUR BOY STILL CAN’T DANCE!
This was definitely NOT the movie I thought it would be, not to say that’s a horrible thing. But if you’re looking for a tidily tied-up movie with characters that end up redeeming themselves in the end, look elsewhere. I literally typed OMG WHAT THE FUCKITY FUCKING FUCK?!?!?!?!?!? THAT’S IT?!?!?!?!?!??! in the chat window to my twin as we co-watched. It’s just…yeah.
So. Without giving anything huge away, I’ll (with difficulty) give Finding Amanda one thumb up. The movie wasn’t bad, but watching it once was enough. Greg on the other hand, was very VERY bad, and watching our boy act like such a DOUCHE is kind of a downer.
I totally have to agree with my twin…Finding Amanda definitely wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. Matthew Broderick going to help “save” his niece from her whorish ways is a laugh and a half considering dude has just as many vices as she does! And the ending was major WTF!
Yeah…about the hair, Greg. Dayum that shit is busted! Just when we thought you couldn’t be any more of a douche!!! Lady beater = hard limit, fool!
So while it was fascinating to see PFach play a role that requires him to be such a douche-nozzle, I certainly didn’t enjoy it. I like it when he’s cute and happy and swoon-worthy and RAWR, but not douchy and whiny and likes to slap-a-ho! I do not approve!
I guess a thumb up from me as well, and that’s just because….I dunno. PFach’s G-Banger outfit at the end? Sure, we’ll go with that. Now we realize this post may have wilted your lady boner and/or made you want to kick Greg (and in turn, PFach) square in those amazingly white teeth, and we can’t have that!!! Allow me to lift your spirits, friends!
There, now don’t you feel better??

Utterly discouraged from our semi-negative recap? Here, this is pretty much all of PFach’s time to shine in this film. You’re welcome! (And also FU GREG!!!!)
