(Honest Title) Why Men Don’t Like Chick FlicksWritten by Martin Winer

dismisses it as: “You expect me to tell truth about my life to most indiscreet man in England?” This is an example of terrible writing where writers dig themselves out of a whole by floating to top in syrup. Why didn’t she just answer fellow actor with “He’s a friend” and leave it at that? Why does Grant have to put up with such behaviour and accept such lame excuses? Of course, in tradition with all Grant films, he accepts explanation and leads up to: 2) The grand apology. It seems a new trend in effeminized America to have leading male prancing around apologizing. In every Grant movie there is a huge apology where he apologizes to some horribly behaved woman to get her love. Watching Grant wince his eyes and beg forgiveness having committed no wrong, aside from his selection in screenplays, is like fingernails on chalkboard for male audience. Ross (from Friends) and Grant (in every movie) always apologize for no apparent reason, and in fact, often apologize for not apologizing. Perhaps only real apology in such films should be an on screen cameo by screenplay writers apologizing for overly syrupy content. Looking at movie script: http://www.juliaroberts.de/script2.htm, Men apologize some 23 times compared to 8 times for their female counterparts. The male lead Grant apologizes some 12 times, compared to Julia Roberts apologizing a mere 3 times. Somewhere around 10th apology, women in audience are becoming enraptured while their male counterparts are wondering when next episode in Star Wars saga will premier so they can watch a movie where men can proudly wield their light sabers and offer no apology in so doing.

Las Vegas "Whales"Written by Iulia Pascanu
Continued from page 1
While "whales" number just a few hundreds in world, amounts they can afford to lose are purely impressive; that is why hoteliers pay specially trained staff for "whales hunting". The Asians form a big part of this exclusivist market, about 80 %. The bottom line is to keep them comming in, at same rate, after nine eleven.
Unfortunatelly, Las Vegas seems to be experiencing a decrease in whale strands these days. One reason, that all hoteliers agree about, is they don't get as much privacy in Las Vegas casinos as they would normally get in other gaming destinations of world. While hotel owners in Las Vegas await their VIP saloons approved, "whales" gamble in Macau, Monaco or Australia.
