The amount of hand waving in the “Amelia” trailer!

I heard that the original title of the new Amelia Earhart biopic starring Hilary Swank and her teeth was “Amelia Earhart: Jus’ Wavin’.” Judging from the trailer, this would have been an appropriate title.

I count at least 12 people waving in this trailer, not including the double wave by Swank at 1:35! Considering this represents less than 2 minutes of the film, I am conservatively estimating that the movie itself contains approximately 8,437 waves. This estimate does not include scenes of waving crowds. With crowd waving included, I would increase that figure to about 3.5 million waving hands.

Don’t get me wrong, I love to watch people wave almost as much as I enjoy waving myself. In high school I was Vice President of the Waving Club and after college I thought briefly about turning pro. Sadly, an unfortunate incident with a ceiling fan put an end to my waving career. Sure, I still do a little waving on the weekends when the weather is nice but it’s nothing like when I was at my peak.

Maybe Amelia Earhart should have spent a little less time waving and a little more time not crashing into the ocean.

    I’m glad this was beaten at the box office this weekend by two horror movies.

    i think hillary swank is beautiful. the short hair doenst do her justice. i would invest 90 minutes to watch this if it were on cable, or if some chick had the DVD. its looks at least worthy of that.

    Hilary Swank is talented. when you’re talented your looks go out the window. she looks nothing like Amelia though,Amelia was femme and pretty hot for her age.

    Hodan – I actually think she kind of looks like her. I mean in the movie, once she is all made up to look like her.

    The real Amelia was a bad ass for sure! TOTAL MILF!

    Joe – Good point. I forgot about the 2 year raping spree Amelia Earhart went on. I wonder if it’s included in the movie?

    One of my ex-girlfriends’ grandfathers was one of Amelia’s mechanics… Pretty cool to hear stories… Different times, they were, for sure.

    Why am I posting here from Kauai? Does this make me an addict?

    Shit.

    The Office turned Hilary’s Swank’s questionable hotness into an entire b-story. This clip only hints at the extent of the debate in the show:

    This is possibly one of your funniest posts ever!

    P.S. Fuck you San Fran. It’s not enough that you live in SF, I have to read about you being in Hawaii while I sit in my office watching the rain in Ohio?? Go fuck yourself! You’re on my list too!

    “Maybe Amelia Earhart should have spent a little less time waving and a little more time not crashing into the ocean.”

    Possibly one of the funniest things I have ever heard in my life!

    San Fran just made my list too…. he’s in Kauai AND he has an internet connection. Asshole.

    Amy Adams plays Amelia in Night at the Museum II. She wears these really tight flight pants. Her ass becomes a highlight of the movie. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.
