Comedy "Brad's Midlife Crisis" movie commentary copy
People's pain sometimes comes from comparison.
Middle-aged Brad is the one who loves to compare.
Before he goes to bed, he thinks of his promising college friend.
Nick has become a Hollywood director.
Life is rotten and degenerate.
Jason was in the financial industry and he was rich.
Three mansions in your name.
Billy sold his company.
Retire early after getting rich.
Spend your old age on the island.
Fisher works in the White House.
Was on TV every day
Became a star-like figure.
Then look at himself.
Runs a non-profit organization with one employee.
Doesn't make a lot of money and has a very mundane life.
The more Brad compared
The more he feels he has failed in life.
He had a son.
Graduating from high school and applying to college.
He will take a plane to accompany his son to the school interview.
At the airport, Brad wanted to scenery
Upgrade economy class to business class
When the staff said the cost was 1600 at the time.
Brad's heart was stabbed.
Yet still tried to give the staff the ticket and bank card.
However, the staff told him that the discounted ticket would not be upgraded.
And you don't have enough money on your card.
Brad's heart that wanted to be scenic was mercilessly shattered
He and his son could only fly in economy class
Frustrated, Brad again compared his classmates
Jason has his own private jet
He didn't even have to buy a plane ticket
The family was having fun on the plane
Nick had his own plane to transport him
You can bring as many pets as you want on the plane
No one will stop him
This world is a battlefield for ordinary people like himself
But for the rich and powerful, it's a playground.
Soon they were off the plane and in the hotel.
Brad watched his children grow into adults
He was very proud of himself.
The sight made him compare his children again
He guessed that rich people like Jason must be very spoiled with their children
The child had become lawless and even started using drugs
This spirit of Q makes Brad feel a lot better.
He finally found happiness in the imaginary comparison
He imagined that his child had been accepted to Harvard University.
How happy he and his wife would be then
He could brag about how great his kids were.
The next day
Brad brought his son to Harvard for his interview.
His son came out of the interview office
He was given the news of a sunny day
His son had misremembered the time of the interview
It should have been yesterday.
Brad really freaked out
He complained to his son.
After the scolding, he thought about it and found a solution.
It was to find his old classmate Fisher
In fact, Brad hated Fisher.
Once he always saw Fisher on TV
This makes him very jealous
And it is the kind of jealousy with pain
At that time.
Brad even approached Fisher to donate to a non-profit organization
But Fischer didn't agree.
Brad felt that Fischer didn't think he was worthy of him.
His self-esteem was shattered.
So he broke off contact with Fischer.
Now, for the sake of his son.
He had to find a way to contact Fisher.
Brad called Billy for help.
He asked for Fischer's phone number.
Billy, in addition to giving him his number.
He also bragged about how his bar had doubled in size
And he had two very pretty Hawaiian chicks
On the island with him.
It was a great life.
This call hurt Brad's pride again
As if to imply Brad's incompetence
Brad stiff-armedly called Fisher
Fischer was still eager to help
Through his connections, he got a Harvard teacher
to give Brad's son another interview.
Brad was very excited.
He began to imagine
Years later, his son would be on the cover of a magazine
And then leading his black girlfriend around the dinner table and saying
I owe my success to you two.
And I bought an island.
The more Brad thought about it, the happier he got.
His son's high school sweetheart, Mia.
Now goes to Harvard.
Knowing that the father and son were here
So they bought a meal
After talking for a while
Mia's girlfriends also came to the dinner
Brad looked at them
Feeling a touch of sadness
He felt like he should have experienced some good life
Brad started to fantasize again
Imagining a happy life with two girls
Walking on the beach, hugging the right and left
But the difference between fantasy and reality was too great.
Back in reality, he lost sleep again at the hotel
So he went to the bar for a drink.
There he met Mia again.
They talked about their dreams.
Mia's vision is to change the world.
She wants to do charity work to improve the status of women in the world
Brad rushed to tell her
The most important thing is to get a job that makes money
Money is everything.
And also cited herself as a counter-example
That non-profits don't make money.
Compared to those students who make a lot of money
Life is a failure
Mia asked in confusion
Why should I compare myself to those rich students?
Your life is already very good
Some people can't even afford to eat
People instinctively compare themselves to those they have connections with
They don't care about those who are not.
The next day, Brad and his son were walking down the street.
He thought back to the conversation at the bar last night
He thought Mia was being too idealistic.
Comparison and vanity are the most real aspects of society
Brad then speculates
One day when Mia is adopted
Would she still be able to hold on to her idealism?
I'm guessing she'll be all about the luxury life.
Once again, Brad accompanied his child to the Harvard interview.
While he was waiting in the lobby.
Jason had a phone call.
In the middle of a conversation.
Jason's three-year-old had a spinal condition.
Also, Jason didn't have a private jet.
The plane was rented for him by the company
When Brad heard that Jason
was not doing as well as he thought he was
He suddenly felt better
When his son came out of the interview
Told him the results were good
The teacher was very impressed with him
There was a good chance he would be accepted
Brad was very happy.
He invited Fisher to dinner right away.
Thanked him for helping his son
Brad talked about the fact that Jason didn't have a private jet.
The plane was rented by the company
Fisher said he had a private jet
Because he owns that company.
Brad's face changed suddenly when he heard that
His pride took another 10,000 points of damage
And then Fischer went on to brag about how successful
How successful his business was
These words were almost like rubbing salt into Brad's wounds
The meal was a bit painful for Brad
The meal ended badly.
Brad and the kids went to the music hall
Enjoying Mia's instrumental performance together
With the music in the background
Brad began to reflect on himself
Feeling that he had been thinking too much in his head
It was either self-promotion
Never took life seriously
And never listened to music seriously
You should enjoy everything in front of you when you are alive
We'll see you here in this movie
See you next time!
