an out of work professor of ancient greece (?) becomes a miserable tour guide because tourists are so obnoxious

The Woman
i watched this the same day as "Bride Wars" so i may have a twisted sense of positivity towards this movie. it was kind of boring, and it wasn't very funny, but it was "Gone with the Wind" compared to the trash that had entered my brain previously. it made me miss "Connie and Carla" which has a special place in my heart for some reason. i'm not a touristy kind of a person. i tend to avoid that sort of thing when visiting other places. it highlighted my aversion to the tourist persona, and i kind of appreciated that there were multiple countries made fun of in the tourist stereotypes. but that's as far as it goes. after the first introductions of the characters, it got old pretty quick.

the only funny joke was that the bus driver's name was poupie kakas. and that's because i think toilet humor is the funniest! and i'm not being sarcastic with that one.

final thought: truly forgettable
