Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


The Break Up (Sucks)

I saw a coupon online and I knew that Lynnette and I kind of wanted to see it, so I impulse bought a matinee showing and off we went to see The Break-Up on Friday. After the coupon and Fandango fees, it came out to $3.50 each to see the movie on opening afternoon, so it wasn't a bad deal.

Except the movie kind of sucked.

Vince Vaughn
is not Old School or Wedding Crashers Vince. He plays the part well, but the funny seems to be absent most of the time. It's a movie with a lot of dialogue, and every once in a while, a great line will sneak itself in there, but it's not worth sitting through the rest of the movie.

We're still waiting on Jennifer Aniston to make a good movie post-Friends.

Jon Favreau's character is hilarious, but, like Philip Seymour Hoffman in Along Came Polly, can't save the movie all by himself.

Wait and rent the movie in a few months. Certainly there will be some special features to make it worth it.
