At the MoviesI don’t watch At the Movies much nowadays (curse you, Daily Show addiction!) but I’m going to have to make more of an effort. That’s the conclusion I’ve drawn from this transcript of a too-cute chat that David and Margaret had on last night’s episode of the show, about the pecs-and-abs flick Never Back Down:

DAVID: You fancied the leading man, didn’t you? That’s the…

MARGARET: I beg your pardon!

DAVID: Well, I think you did.

MARGARET: I think he’s very cute. Yes, I do.

DAVID: I thought the leading lady was quite cute too, Amber Heard is.

MARGARET: You see what I mean?

DAVID: Yeah.

MARGARET: I mean, I’m not…

DAVID: No, there are compensations.

MARGARET: I’m not going by looks or anything like that.

DAVID: Yeah.

MARGARET: I’m going by being convinced that these people exist in this, you know…

DAVID: Well, I must say high school has changed a lot, hasn’t it? I mean was your high school like that?

MARGARET: Listen, I went to an all girls’ school and it was exactly like that.

DAVID: I bet yours was more like St Trinian’s.
