Sometimes, when you write about movies, you have to be careful where the credit goes. Yesterday I saw a movie called “The Marc Pease Experience” in which a rather full-of-himself character secretly uses a website called IAmFreeTonight.com to get a last-minute date. I thought this was kind of funny and was going to mention it in my review — but then I checked and sure enough, it’s a real thing, and at this very moment NYcCuteGirl, SexyGuy and HotCollegeGirls are free TONIGHT, just in case your plans fell through. (How much do you want to be that they’re free tomorrow, too? “In literally seconds,” the website promises, “you can find singles who want to meet you for a date tonight.” I’ve heard of that, but I didn’t know it was called dating. ) Well, OK then. Credit where it’s due. The site, actually, sounds like an excellent starting point for a screenplay.
