My Dad went on a rare trip to the fillums last night; I made the mistake of asking him about it today.
Me: So, what movie did you see?
Dad: Broken, ah, something. Breaking something, maybe.
Dad: Jude Law was in it.
Me: Yeah, doesn't sound familiar, but I don't--
Dad: Although it might have been Sting. The guy looked a lot like Sting, but I thought he was a bit young to be Sting. But then I don't really know how old Sting is. Or what he looks like.
Me: What was the movie about?
Dad: It was sort of, I don't know...it was more a girly, you know, love story than anything else.
Me: Bit of a chick flick?
Dad: Yeah. No. I don't know.
Me: Did you actually watch the film?
Dad: Yeah, it's just...I don't know.
Me: Ok. [lengthy pause] So... [slightly longer pause during which Dad starts pretending to be occupied with a newspaper crossword] Um, think I might get going.
Dad: [dismissive grunt]
