Default How many man points do you lose for going to see "Eat, Pray, Love?"

So, an otherwise agreeable young lady I'm dealing with, wants me to see this movie with her. She expresses genuine enthusiasm for this estrogen-fest, but I am almost completely sure that she wants to see it with me instead of her girls simply to establish that she has a certain amount of power over me. More than I am willing to accede, in fact, because no matter how she wants to pout, I'm not going to see this shit. She'll find some petty, stupid way to punish me for this I don't care...she's gone too far. But I am wondering...not that I will relent at all, I am just wondering...how many man points do you lose for watching this film?

By way of trying to establish some kind of scale, I have personally levied the following penalties:

-10,000 man points from a friend who had a full set of Magic Cards.

-1,000,000 man points the same friend for also having a rubber Spiderman costume. There was extra for being a repeat offender.

-500 man points to a friend that had his wife drive the truck the whole time when they were moving.

On the flip side, rewards:

+ 1,000 man points if you own hockey or football pads and other gear that you actually use.

+ 20 man points for every day spent in MMA training.

+10,000 man points for every time you step into the ring for an MMA fight, unless you are Charlie Z, in which case, -1,000,000 man points for your performance, jackass.

+1,000,000 man points for being Bruce Campbell.

The standard point loss for watching any Julia Roberts movie is -500, but this one is especially bad, largely for the title of the thing. Few movies have been so thoroughly "chick flick."

Thoughts?

It's probably better than Salt.

If you enjoy it you lose no man points. If you are made to go to it and hate it, then we can talk about you losing man points.

Okay, I take my comments back. I just read a review, and it sounds like crap. I had heard of the book, but why would James Franco and Billy Crudup attach themselves to this? Maybe they got to gang-bang Julia or her niece.

One of the main writers has the last name, 'Salt'

This movie is bull shit. It reminds so much of "The Bucket List"... only without the bucket.

Kind of pretentious, "I'm going to travel all over the world and eat a bunch of good food to make me happy", crap. Not a fan of Julia Roberts either.

As far as going to see it with a girl, I'd probably do it without much hesitation. All about pleasing the ladies, life's too short not too. As long as she aint taking it for granted.

The only ways I could get her to see Expendables would be to either take her to some $40+ plate jacked-up restaurant or agree to "Eat, Puke, Lose" as a trade-off. Not hapening. As for "lose all of them," that may sound ok in theory, but everyone doesn't have the same amount of man points. And a lot of "men" deserve to have negative totals.

Seriously?

If you just think she's pretty to look at, you can dig up plenty of photos on the internet. If you are a fan of her movies and her work, on the other hand, why would you click on a thread about "man points?"

She's a good actress and is attractive. You're getting way too worked up over this.

Watching Pretty Woman or Erin Brokovich is undoubtedly NOT a reduction of one's masculinity.

Lol, that's true. That was point of your scale. I would probably say in the -500 to -5,000 range.

How many man points would you get for (hypothetically) getting some tail after watching (and paying) for a movie like this?.... Not that that's inevitable or anything.

I suppose you need to prove your manhood online by adamantly being against a movie. Mad "man points" there.

there's no such thing as man points. count them if you want, but they're about as good as monopoly dollars.
