13 Going on 30

Poor Andy Serkis. Poor Poise. Poor you-go-girl secretary.

They were all merely tools, constructions in the protagonist's imagination. At best they were in an alternate future where they are now jobless and ruined. Their lives -- created to show Jennifer Garner that mistakes she may make at 13 will snowball into her becoming cold, calculated, and a cutthroat at 30 -- have turned upside down.

I feel bad for them, for all their hard work in life, struggling against certain doom.

The Hollywood ending left their plotlines to wisp through a negated universe.

But at least Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo lived
happily ever after.

Mmmm, "Deep Thoughts by Brendan West". Who knew?!? What the crap are you doing watching "13 going on 30" anyway? :-D (You can't hear it, but I am actually laughing hysterically aloud in my office at the thought.)
