Oh Thank you God! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You… Finally the day has come when I will be able to see a movie based on the love affair of Barack and Michelle Obama. An answer to a prayer!
Read about it here.
Michelle Obama will be played by a beautiful actress named Tika Sumpter. Tika is truly a beauty. Therefore I am not so sure why she was cast to play Michelle. I am not saying Michelle is ugly, but for sure she should not be portrayed on screen as some kind of feast for the eyes.
“I took her to this new movie that everybody was talking about, directed by a guy that not that many people had heard of, but it was supposed to be pretty good,” Obama recalled during the film’s 25th anniversary celebration this summer. The site of the Obamas’ first kiss – curbside, outside a Baskin-Robbins in Chicago’s Hyde Park – was commemorated with a city plaque in 2012.
“Stephanie and I are excited to produce this smart and timeless film that sheds light on one of the great love stories of our time,” said Bing. “Richard really captures the essence of that romantic connection between Barack and Michelle that is so evident in the way that they look at each other. We are looking forward to finding the perfect Barack.”
Nice to know that the city of Chicago is installing memorial plaques on the location of the Obama’s first kiss. You would think that it might have higher priorities for spending such as ……..oh you know…….maybe trying to not be the country’s leading homicide location.
But anyway, who do you think will get cast to play Barack? Let me think….he has to be tall, lanky, have ears that stick straight out, curl his ‘S’s when speaking, and have tiny girl hands. Not going to be easy. They will probably have a couple people play the part of Barack. Ya know, the early years when he was a cute little kid and then another one to play Barack when he was a pot smoking punk ass bitch at one of the colleges he dropped out of. And then a third when he became the teleprompter of The United States of America.
I hope there are no sex scenes. I can just picture people barfing up a large $24 bucket of popcorn. I really think they should have started with a book instead of a movie.
Even the name of the movie ‘Southside with You’ sounds romantic. Doesn’t it? Tell me, is there a more romantic place in the world than Southside Chicago? A stroll along the main streets while stepping over the bodies of young dead black men killed by rival gangs and drug dealers. Or sipping a milkshake at the ice cream parlor while they stare lovingly out the window at the bank robberies, hookers and street thugs. I smell an Academy Award….
