FIeld Trip #6: Simply Irresistible
Our field trip to the Big Apple features the 1999 movie Simply Irresistible, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Just as Amanda's mother's restaurant is sure to close due to her terrible cooking, she receives a gift from a mysterious man at the farmer's market - a magic crab. Yes, you read that right. A magic crab.
Once it sets up shop in her kitchen, it seems this crab can make Amanda's emotions affect her cooking - inducing feelings of satisfaction, lust, and friskiness. When major hunk Tom visits her restaurant, the two begin a whirlwind romance from meal to meal. But are Tom's feelings genuine? Or is he being magically roofied?
Kristen and Mike look for the appeal of Tom, and what character development (if any) he and Amanda undergo by the end. And we discuss Mike's conspiracy theory of where the magic really comes from, and consider his dark sequel pitch.
