Shit, Actually | Lindy West

Pickpick

This author is really freaking funny. She watches old movies through a new adult lens and gives commentary. It's hilarious but she didn't exactly roast any of my favorites. Basically, The Fugitive is the best movie ever and she rates others against it. Love, Actually doesn't fare too well.

Neither of these audiobooks did it for me on the drive up to VT this past weekend.

I liked the first story presented in Bedtime Stories for Cynics but REALLY disliked the next handful. I maybe would‘ve enjoyed the Lindy West title more if I‘d seen more of the films reviewed. I think I‘ll appreciate her insights more in newsletter form; F me & my bougie, preconceived, limited notions but her writing felt way too casual for a whole-ass book. 🤷‍♀️

vivastory 😂 It is embarrassing for me to admit how long it took before it dawned on me exactly which movie the title West's book ref to (I hadn't seen it). Once I realized it I had a hearty chuckle. Esp. since my ex was a *big* fan of the movie & I have a very vivid memory of being surrounded by angry customers at Hollywood Video demanding I watch it 5mo
monalyisha @vivastory I actually have very little knowledge of Love, Actually. I know I‘ve watched it (& I know people love it) before but it didn‘t stick! 5mo
vivastory Literally the only thing I know about it is that 1) it's widely beloved & 2) Andrew Lincoln (of Walking Dead fame) is one of many celebrities that starred in it & SNL subsequently based a skit on a scene from the movie to try to convince voters to turn out in '16 (this last bit was painful to type) 5mo

I absolutely ADORE this book!! Like Lindy, I am that friend who will point out plot holes or what is silly about your favorite movie. But I will also celebrate what makes it great, too! I think it helps that she and I are about the same age with similar cultural touchstones. (80s kids/90s teens) I‘d love it if she did this same thing with TV episodes!!

My favorite reviews are of American Pie, Reality Bites, Garden State, and Love, Actually.

Bookwormjillk That‘s what this book is about? I assumed it was self help 😂 I will add it to my TBR right now. 6mo

Also started this one by Lindy West. A collection of essays where Lindy “rewatch[es] successful movies from the past to see how they hold up to our shifting modern sensibilities.” She rates movies on a scale of 1 out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive, whereas The Fugitive is rated 13 dvds out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive.

Snarky plot synopsis of 23 movies, only a few of which I have seen, but most am generally familiar with. The title essay is quite good (also the only movie with which I am very familiar), making some excellent points. Her exclamatory humor is not quite mine, so I found this an only mildly amusing, but good as a palate cleanser, between other books read.

3⭐

Is Twilight the horniest movie in history? Why do the zebras in The Lion King trust Mufasa-WHO IS A LION-to look out for their best interests? And, my god, why don't any of the women in Love, Actually ever fucking talk?!?!

A love letter and break up note to well known movies and do they stand the test of time. Hilarious read.

Mostly it's snarky summaries of plots from blockbuster movies of the 80's and 90's and early 00's with occasional observations about things that haven't aged well. I guess the reviews began as blog posts, and there are some terrific blog posts in here, but at book length they become wearing. Don't expect great insights into the films, and take it in measured doses and it's pretty funny.

Something made me choose to start this today, and I‘m glad, because I just took a walk around the neighborhood and laughed at the first two chapters. I happen to love Love, Actually - even though it‘s problematic. I can admit that everything she mentioned is fair.

Except going after Emma Thompson, because she is a treasure and I still haven‘t forgiven Alan Rickman.

Such a funny, engaging book! I don't usually read humorous books; however, I heard Lindy West is a great writer. I laughed throughout the whole thing. She makes many valid points about the movies she reviews. I especially love her reviews on Twilight, Love Actually, and Top Gun. I would love to see more movie reviews from her. Her reviews explain the movies more realistically than most other reviews. I look forward to reading more by her!

A raving pick! I looooved it! I‘m known for my deep love and questionable taste in movies and this felt like it was made for me. I want to reach out and tell Lindy West that I too prefer Can‘t Hardly Wait to American Pie! I too think Troy is Reality Bites is just the worst but I love him and despite knowing better, love that they end up together. The low point of this (for me) was Harry Potter but I‘m just not a huge fan. Otherwise, adored it.

I have been saving this audiobook for months, waiting for a time when I really needed snarky movie reviews. The classic is, of course, the title review, which I first read on Jezebel while recovering from watching Love, Actually. West spends a lot of time on 90s movies, which makes this an excellent book for younger GenXers and older Millennials. Not every review is a slam dunk, but I laughed out loud several times and laughed until I cried once.

Very disappointed with this one. Only made it 30% to finish the Harry Potter review. I was expecting more than just movie plot summaries with snarky comments thrown in. The intro explains the essays were adapted from Jezebel blog posts, which makes a lot of sense given all of the internet speak. That style might work in short form weekly blogs, but not as a cohesive book. The first piece on The Fugitive was the best of the ones I read.

It‘s rainy and nasty here, so after I finished work, I just sat back and read this. West‘s snarky take on 90s movies was a lot of fun even if I didn‘t get some of the jokes. She uses internet slang and acronyms; I am the kind of person who never used the slang that was popular when I was a teenager, so I had to look up quite a few things. Some things were hilarious — like the way she describes the only way to have made a video call in the 90s.

4🌟West objectively, hilariously and accurately critiques several movies I grew up watching. Seeing how they stand up nowadays. Most of these are movies that shaped pop culture for years. There were things that I had noticed prior and other things she opened my eyes to. She calls out misogyny, racism, and just general nonsense and bullshit, I loved it!! This is one of thoes books I found myself giggling and laughing out loud! #bookreview

I know this has been a love it or loathe it book on litsy, but I would watch a movie with Lindy any day! I thought it might good to read after finishing Rose McGowan‘s memoir this morning. I agree with Lindy that movies like American Pie kind of validate incels and that Love, Actually was definitely a rom com written by a man for women that actually objectifies women.

Megabooks @KathyWheeler @Cinfhen it was probably this one (tagged). She‘s only written three books. I think the themes she touches on in Shrill are more universal than her later books. TWAC is waaayyy more political, and you have to have a thing for 90s and early 00s movies to enjoy this book. 10mo

You should listen to this book on audio. It‘s read by the author and I laughed so hard I cried through most of the book. West critiques movies - points out plot holes, inconsistencies and misogynistic moments. I had seen most of the movies, but even the critiques of movies I hadn‘t seen were fun to listen to.

You can love bad movies - Lindy West won't judge you, she'll even join you in some cases. But you should appreciate just how full of sh🎬t they are. Sometimes for benign suspension of disbelief reasons but often due to massive amounts of misogyny and fat-shaming. She had me cracking up at some of her plot descriptions of popular Hollywood blockbusters. I didn't enjoy the millennial-speak shtick which was a little grating but otherwise I was a fan.

KVanRead This particular scene is so cringey to me I can barely watch this move anymore 🤪 11mo
Billypar @KVanRead Agreed - very cringey! Her Love Actually piece was the only one I read previously and it's still my favorite of the bunch. I think it's worth watching the movie just to read it and know the scenes being referenced. 11mo

This was my #doublespin for February, and I just couldn‘t get into it. The premise sounded promising: a journalist writing reviews and seeing if older movies could stand up to changing times. But the irreverent tone, which I do enjoy if done right, was just jarring and there never seemed to be a point to it. Excessive swearing added to my displeasure. Skipping ahead to chapters about movies I had seen didn‘t even help. DNF

I loved that she rated each movie using an “X/10 DVDs of The Fugitive” scale. I felt like I held my breath through the entire chapter about Jurassic Park, hoping it‘d score high. I wasn‘t disappointed 🦖

Lindy West rewatches a bunch of iconic movies like Titanic, Love, Actually, Forrest Gump and Shawshank Redemption, to name a few. Her essays are rants about all that is wrong with each of these movies and they come off as more angry than hilarious. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #shitactually #lindywest 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣1️⃣0️⃣

“Of course, it must be acknowledged that The Fugitive is a movie all about men, where women don‘t do very much except die or sometimes hold a clipboard. It‘s all men who are the boss, but who is the most boss of the men??? Is it the Harrison Ford kind of boss or the Tommy Lee Jones kind of boss? . . . This is allowed because in 1993 it was still okay to make movies all about men, as their contract wasn‘t up yet.”

This is a very simple book—snarky regurgitations of 90s move plots. It‘s uneven and some of it tries to hard, but there were some that I enjoyed so much I had to give this a pick. I‘ve never had any desire to see The Notebook (because the idea of it to me is 🤮) and I was nearly crying with laughter in that chapter. Not comparable to her other writing, as this is just lighthearted entertainment.

I think it was a bad idea to try to listen to two of Lindy‘s books back to back.

Also it‘s probably me... I think someone who remembers movie details more than me might enjoy this more? Unless I really love a movie the content flies out of my head as soon as it‘s over.

This book is nothing but her being a very very critical movie critic. I‘m sure that‘ll be fun for lots of people. Just not for me.

The second word of this title is one word too many to describe this book. She's not funny (although you can tell that she THINKS she is). She attempts to make up for this by swearing more than a drunken sailor with Tourette's. And as if all this isn't annoying enough, she's one of those people who engage in competitive "wokeness," producing garbage like this: "Airports are "empathy-stripped cathedrals of turgid, racist bureaucracy." SERIOUSLY?

I know this has been getting mixed reviews on Litsy and Insta, but tbh, I loved it. My mom and I always make snarky comments and point out plot holes in movies, so it was like I had a sister joining us. I laughed so many times! While I didn‘t love every review, Face Off and Terminator 2 were losers; others I adored, including Garden State and Twilight. If you‘re not in the mood for snark or liberal politics, stay away. Otherwise, 4⭐️ for me.
