You and Me and a Movie Review that Demonstrates I am Not Dupree

Because people have refused to stop bringing up the movie You and Me and Dupree I am forced to go Medieval (specifically Scholastic) on some peeps.

The new movie starring Owen Wilson is about a best man who moves in with the newly married couple.

My situation is totally different. For example Curtis didn't ask me to be his best man. He asked his brother (Hints of Nepotism with just a whiff of Cronyism.) I think he holds a grudge from those years as my man servant.

And here is another differrence: In the movie. Well, I guess the fact that I wasn't best man is the main difference. But understand that Curtis and Jessie totally like having me around: that is why they are beginning the legal fight to adopt me.

Sure there are legal hurdles to overcome. For example I am two years older than the older of the two.

Also, they refuse to sign a prenuptial. Remember that kid who divorced his parents? I should rather like to have myself covered in the event that I choose to seek a parental divorce due to living conditions becoming unbearable or my wanting to have a plot twist for my blog.

...and you don't resemble Owen Wilson physically or anything, do you?

Justin said...

I don't. I look more like ben stiller. At least at a spirtual level. So I like to think.

Adopting new parents is tough. Just ask Elija Wood. Not only is it emotionally draining, but you also have to talk to Bruce Willis in a bunny suit.

I hope your adoption goes more smoothly.

I didn't realize you would take one (or four) little comments to heart like this...I'm sorry.

Are you parents putting up a fight to keep you? Or have they already turned your old room into a sewing/guest/game room?

Curtis and Jess are equipped to handle your special needs aren't they? Beer bread and pistachio nuts on demand, etc...

I didn't realise you were up for adoption...

~Deb said...

My partner and I will adopt you! We need a man of the house! You're handy, right?

jenni said...

haven't seen the movie, and really don't know your whole story. but, i do hope things work out for you. i have a little situation myself brewing up with my family right now. feel free to stop by and make any suggestions.

Justin,

One other tiny thing seperates you from Dupree: a brain cell -- okay, maybe two or three .....

Justin's Parents said...

Biting Blonde, We would gladly fight to keep Justin, if he still lived here, but he's been long gone. At the time, we waited the appropriate 24 hours to re-do his old room.

Justin: Have you considered selling yourself to the highest bidder? I hear that's big in adoption circles.

Finding Fair Hope said...

Nobody looks like Ben Stiller on a spiritual level.

QuillDancer said...

That's it, Justin! Goldennib has a great idea! Put yourself up for adoption on eBay! The highest bidder gets to keep you! You'd make the news and pick up hundreds of new COI readers! You'd have to hire a staff to read the comments ... wait, never mind. Bad idea. Hush, Nessa!

Slainte and don't look in.

contemplator said...

i can definitely see the dupree movie in this situation. i couldnt stop laughing for 10 minutes. wow. that was hilarious.

A.R.P. said...

Great movie, terrible situation, it's probably best to go feral. Apparently I don't get jokes, but at least now I know it's because I'm in possession of an inferior American intellect. Thanks Severe Bloodspots! Way to blog!
