|Milla Jovovich giving up her watch in exchange |
for borrowing a cell phone in the movie, Survivor.
Abbott finds somebody who hasn't seen her picture in the past two hours. She figures that a movie ticket taker who's been working in solitary confinement in a movie ticket booth won't have seen the recent news. In this riveting, heart pounding scene (if you're a watch lover), Abbott coaxes the movie theater employee into letting her borrow the employee's phone for a minute. For incentive, Abbott removes her watch and says, "It was a present. It's sterling, okay." To add additional suspense to this fingernail biting movie moment, we can't even tell what kind of watch Abbott is wearing.
What's the lesson here besides that big name actors can't turn a so so script into a good movie? The lesson is, always wear your expensive wristwatch because you never know when you may need to exchange it for something that could save your life.
