The Real Girl

I watched Lars & the Real Girl this weekend. It was really, really good. At the center of the movie is Bianca, a Real Doll that Lars purchases and “dates”. But the movie isn’t really about Bianca so much as it’s about a family communicating and loving each other and Lars’ ability to connect with people. Curiosity got the best of me and I went to the Real Doll website. Holy smokes. Ok, first of all, these things really do look real. If you squint. Secondly, they are pricey. About $6500 to start. So no jobless perv is going to be shopping for a Real Doll. You can mix and match faces and bodies. It’s like a train wreck in there. Go, look. You’ll see. Be sure to check out the FAQs. One of the questions on there is if you can buy a female “skin”. Ew. Silence of the Lambs ew. Oh, and you can buy a she male! For those hard to shop for people on your Christmas list!
