1: Nobody Puts Mini-Me in A Corner, Except Himself
Episode 8- 3/20/05
The cast begins to film their epic short kung-fu flick "Seven Celebrities of Death." Of course, things don't go smoothly, as Joanie tries method acting which makes her line reading unintelligible and Jane devotes too much time to unimportant issues like make-up and costumes. The lovebirds, Chris and Adrianne, fret and fume and plot to get the actual movie professionals to take over. When the movie gets so far behind schedule that it might prove impossible to finish in one day, Chris approaches Jane and asks if she would allow the Assistant Director to take over. Jane reacts the way we've come to expect The Surreal Life castmates to overreact - she cries and complains. Perhaps the schedule would have moved quicker if Chris and Adrianne hadn't lingered over their on-screen love scene. Under the helm of the Assistant Director, the cast finishes the film and we are treated to a screening. It turns out to be an amusing waste of time - both theirs and ours.
It was dissapointing that the bulk of the hold up on this project (as far as we could see) was due to Janes bent toward perfection on...make-up. But as we've come to learn over the years, Surreal Life is about nothing if not gross imperfection. As we've also come to learn about Surreal Lifers, little do they ever know what they do not know...and to this, Jane is no exception. She couldn't correct herself, it would seem. She felt ganged up on by master plotter Christopher Knight...who knows what kind of mutanies he once organized among the six melodramas otherwise known as the Brady kids. In any case, the assistant director Victor got things done in they way of meeting schedule, but the end result was still lame and boring - which is usually a b-celebrities biggest fear.
