MONDO EXTRAS

Are you kidding us with this?

Riding the Bus with My Sister

Present-day Beth sadly says that Rachel thought she couldn't hook her own braaaaaa-errr. And the pronunciation of this word really makes me wonder if they are from Massachusetts. Beth says she isn't stupid, just different. Rachel then completely avoids the subject and asks Beth if she remembers when she used to tickle her arm. She asks Beth if she wants to be tickled and Beth says yes. Tickling of the arm, and Beth creepily goes, "That's nice, Rachel. That's nice. Gives me a shiver." She then happily yells, "Want me to do it to you, now?" More tickling. The two women lie on the bed and laugh. Tickling: the cure to life's woes. Please, someone, make this movie stop.

Rachel, Beth, and Jesse ride in Rick's bitchin' convertible. They are driving to the beach. Beth says she won't go swimming because it's too cold. As some life-affirming music plays, Beth and Jesse dance around on the beach. Rachel takes photos. Rick sits on a blanket, watching and laughing. Rachel laughs at Beth's antics. Beth and Jesse get close to the water, but have not taken off their shoes. Rick says to Rachel that she has been good for Beth, and that he's never seen Beth happier. Rachel says that Beth has been good for her, too, and so has Rick. She's not going to forget that. Rick asks what about Welsh boyfriend Sam, and Rachel says she hasn't talked to him. Rick says that she has to put herself out there, and Rachel says she's afraid of rejection. With a meaningful look, Rick says that rejection is good for a person because it makes you move on. And I guess that's the end of their tiresome, unconvincing, and not nearly sexy enough subplot. Beth yells that Rachel has to come in the water. She does, and dances around with Beth and Jesse while Rick takes photos.

It's the three-month after meeting with the social workers. Olivia says that Beth is doing very well. She's had her dentist appointment, and also received an inhaler for her allergies. Beth says she doesn't use it because it might take up too much time and make her miss the bus. The other social worker says she could get an infection and Beth says that's not going to happen. She then asks if Beth is still wasting all of her money on junk food. Beth says yes. Rachel interjects and says, "Beth is an adult. If she doesn't want to be cautious about her meds, her weight, or her money, we can only hope that her love of life will push her to take better care of herself." And I am a bit surprised that this is the first time that the words "love of life" have actually been uttered. The folks at the Hallmark Subliminal Department were like, "Well, maybe just in case." Beth is happy. Social worker asks if Beth is still riding the bus. Rachel says that the bus is Beth's life, and Olivia smiles. The other social worker says that Beth should have some goals, and Beth says that her goals are to go to Disney World with Jesse and spend a whole day with her niece and nephew. Olivia says, "Same as last year." Are we supposed to thus believe that Rachel has been there for a whole year? Because she totally hasn't. Beth whisper-asks Rachel if she wants to get some ice cream. Rachel whispers back that she would.
