Okay, so this weekend Boo’s brother and fiancee came down to visit and we went to see Iron Man 2. Personally, I liked the movie. I always like a movie where stuff blows up so there was that. Robert Downey Jr. was kind of hilarious. ScarJo was surprisingly adept at kicking butt while maintain perfectly coiffed curls. I guess what I’m trying to say is that, overall, I enjoyed it.
And then I saw this:

Do you all notice how orange his palms are? Apparently Justin Hammer has more than just Iron Man to worry about as it seems he had a run-in with a bad bottle of tanning lotion. But that is the type of thing that someone is supposed to catch! Someone on set is supposed to have that job. The person whose sole responsibility it is to make sure that the actors are wearing the same jewelry from day to day of filming and to make sure that the makeup team extended the gash on the arm all the way to the wrist if that was how long the gash was in the previous scenes, etc. It should be that same person’s job to make sure that the actors don’t look like Jersey Shore extras. It’s only in this scene that his hands are that color. I don’t know if his orange palms have some significance to the plot or not but my goodness–I could barely concentrate on what he was saying during this scene. All I could think about was the fact that someone should have scrubbed that man down before they filmed that scene because his palms are glaringly orange!
So, in summary, go see Iron Man 2. It was a really good movie. And when you see Hammer sit down at that table, just avert your eyes to avoid the orange.
