Went to see Contagion, and really -- how can I spoil this? I mean, the movie is about a plague and people are dropping like flies.
The first one to drop is Gwyneth Paltrow.
They're doing an autopsy of her, and they saw into her head and peel back her face with all kinds of drilling and squishy sounds and the entire theater kind of rears back in horror and a bunch of us laugh uncomfortably.
So the two doctors peer into Gwyneth Paltrow's brain and the more senior one says, "Wow. Step back. Now!"
"What IS that!!" the other doctor asks in horror.
It's Gwyneth Paltrow's brain, I can't help but think.
A few more people are laughing and I'm thinking, "What's with the Gwyneth Paltrow hate?"
But the way the screenplay has it, she has been cheating on her husband so all that squishyiness and horrible bone drilling is totally justified.
I mean, it is Gwyneth Paltrow.
