While She Was Out (2008)
Suburban slob housewife Kim Bassinger's character appears to be medicated on either Valium or Xanax. She can't seem to grasp why her husband is so ticked after he enters their shizzle dwelling, while blaming her totally messy house on the fact they have children. Yeah....pop another pill, soccer mama. How about instead trying some parental discipline such as "Pick up after yourselves, kids." then take your own advice. No wonder your husband is in a foul mood when he comes home to that shizzle storm. And what's with leaving the children's snack on the stair step as if they're in some form of prison?
She leaves her house on an errand and suddenly notices the star atop their outdoor Christmas tree is on the ground - a small oversight compared to the disaster strewn about the inside of their house. Then without seeming to be able to keep her eyes on the road, what with her cigarettes, cell phone conversations, etc., she drives to the mall because she's out of wrapping paper - what's wrong with driving to the nearest drug store?
She acts all indignant that the mall parking lot is overflowing, and gets irritated when a random 1980's pimp-mobile takes up two parking spots. How does she know that the driver had no choice due to the manner in which the cars on either side were parked prior? Yeah, that note she left on their windshield oughta teach those "selfish jerks" a big lesson!
Later, the overcrowded parking lot is suddenly void of traffic and shoppers when a gun shot goes off - perhaps in a perfect world but not in this scenario. And what's up with the red tool box?
Too many oversights to make this movie have any semblance of reality. Sorry Kim Bassinger, this movie is a total zero.
