When in Rome

So I'm headed to London in a few days and being that I'm in the travel mood, I watched the movie When in Rome. I know. I have the pre-travel boredom.
But be that as it may, I watched it. I find that when you watch movies like this, you need to not have any sort of expectations of greatness because it makes them so much more enjoyable. If you go into a film thinking it's going to be the next You've Got Mail, you're usually disappointed.
Here's something that I've learned: Josh Duhamel doesn't make much sense outside of being married to Fergie. He had minor roles in the Transformers movies and a few roles in some romantic comedies and such, but his real purpose in pictures is to be seen in pictures with Fergie, which is sad since I think the general perception is that they won't make in the long run. I mean, after the first cheating scandal, it doesn't seem like they are going to be so strong right?
But after seeing Fergie in concert, I can say that it would be to his detriment to not make it work with her. She's pop music (and sometimes porn star looking) perfection.
As far as the movie is concerned, was it the best movie ever? No. Was it completely terrible? No. It did make me think about love and chance and making wishes though. As a kid, we throw coins into fountains and make wishes but only a very small percentage of us actually believe they can come true. But what if they did? What if all the wishes we ever made had come true? Would we be happy? Some people's lives seem to work out like that. It seems that whatever they want, they seem to get without much effort.
Those people might be happy with their luck but in all truth, I kinda feel bad for them because they'll never know what it feels like to work hard for something and obtain it.
Can wishes come true? Sure they can. Have I ever had a wish come true? I don't know really. I don't think so? I mean, there have been great things that have happened in my life but were any of them the biproducts of a wish involving a fountain and a coin? I don't think so. Maybe one day. Perhaps I should start throwing coins into fountains again...and buying lottery tickets.
