Young Adult (Movie Scene Spoiler)

It's been a while since I went to the movies, but yesterday I decided to break that boring trend. The movie I went to see is Young Adult.
Young Adult features a fiction writer (Charlize Theron) who is bored with her life and receives and invitation to see the baby her ex boyfriend has had with her new wife. In the midst of getting the invitation she decides that he invited her back because their love was meant to be.

This movie was  actually great. It had a couple of boring moments. Well, the beginning was a little boring and it was hard to tell where the movie was going. However, the moment the author arrived in her hometown and simultaneously started writing her last book for a teen series, it became interesting. Now I'm not going to say too much because I don't want to ruin your chances of watching the movie. However, I will spoil one seen for you. This scene confused me the most.

Did you ever watch the movie Bad Teacher? Well it came out earlier this year and there was one absolutely crazy scene. The scene involved the teacher getting dry humped by the man she was pursuing. I was absolutely hilarious and oddly disturbing. Well Young Adult had a scene similar to that, but it wasn't hilarious. It was disturbing though. It involved her having sex with a homosexual man.

Actually throughout the movie she seemed to be the only that believed he wasn't gay. However, he had accepted that lifestyle. 20 years before that he'd gotten beaten up and crippled by some seniors at the high school that hated that he might be gay. At the time he had not announced being that way. It was just how people saw him because he was the awkward guy. Well the beating crippled him and even left him embarrassed how how his penis worked.

So in the particular scene this woman has embarrassed herself in front of nearly everyone in the town, so she goes to his house looking a mess. He tries to verbally comfort her, but that's not enough. She then gets naked. She then tells him to undress and he listens. It ends with them having sex and falling asleep in each other's arms. It would have been the perfect romantic scene, but there's one problem. He's supposed to be gay.

Okay, so other than that confusing scene where she sleeps with a gay guy the movie was great. If you're a male reading this it was definitely a chick flick so don't see it expecting violence, blood, and manly behavior.
