The film’s final act came to a close. Credits were ushered in by a loud boom that was meant to be the start of a song. Amy woke up.
“Oh. My. Gosh! That movie gets better every viewing,” Carter said, clapping and laughing.
“That was quite a film! Action, adventure…plot. I feel the characters really developed and learned a few things about love, but mostly about themselves. Good stuff,” Deck said. He had said this exact same phrase after watching The Love Guru with friends.
“I thought you’d love it!” Peggy said, joining her husband in a weird clap and laugh combo of joy.
“Totally agree,” Amy said, groggily joining the conversation, “when they finally worked it out, man. I tell you.”
“Well,” Deck said, standing up from the couch, “I hate to view and run, but it is super late and we have a thing in the morning.”
“Thank you for having us over,” Amy said.
“Thank you guys! This was fun. We should plan for next week. I know just the film!” Carter said.
“Sounds great!” Deck said, “we’ll see what we can do.”
Deck and Amy left the house for their car awaiting them in the driveway.
The engine roared to life, but the cab was silent for a long moment. Amy stared out the windshield. Deck could not blink. In unison, they both turned to face each other.
“That was absolute garbage,” Deck said.
“Just the worst. I think less of our friends now,” Amy said.
“I think less of us now,” Deck countered.
“I worry for the future of art,” Amy mumbled.
“They have a kid. They will teach another human that movie was okay,” Deck pondered.
“Let’s go home and put any literally any random movie from Netflix because it will be better than that monstrosity,” Amy suggested.
“Consider it done. We’re never coming back here.”
