A WOMAN working from home has already watched Bad Santa and You’ve Got Mail today and is mid-way through a viewing of The Holiday.
Aquisitions manager Lauren Hewitt is running low on festive movies after doing nothing but bingewatch them since 9am on Monday, but is determined to get paid for the full week even if she has to watch Nativity Rocks!
She said: “I’ve pretty much hit the bottom of the barrel with The Holiday, but what else am I going to do? Work?
“My laptop’s open and I hit the space bar every so often to keep the screen awake as I watch Cameron Diaz and Jude Law get off with each other and shout at Jack Black to f**k off.
“If you ignore the LA half of the film it’s alright. Well, you also have to ignore that there’s a fictional English country shire 40 minutes from central London where Kate Winslet has an affordable cottage and that the Telegraph gives her three weeks off for Christmas.
“Jesus, it’s two and a half hours long. Well, looks like that report’s not being filed until January.”
Hewitt’s boss Joseph Turner said: “Has Lauren done a bloody thing this week apart from the odd whinging email? Also, Winslet getting it on with Jack Black? This film’s bollocks.”
