    I Do and I Dont PDF ☆ I Do MOBI :Ì and I Epub dont download, I Do download, and I book, Do and I epub, I Do and I Dont KindleThis was a very disappointing book Although Basinger has seen a lot of movies and has great enthusiasm for them the analysis that she applies and the conclusions that she comes to are very superficial At the start she bemoans the fact that there are hardly any movies that are billed as marriage movies She then discusses lots of movies as marriage movies but her definition keeps changing depending on the point she wants to make At times she's very concerned with the time period in which the movie is made and at other times she blithely jumps among decades if it suits her purpose better One of the most annoying aspects of her analysis is that she tends to reduce marriage movies to a need for sex done in a winking sort of way that is very reductive In the later part of the book although the topic is marriage in the movies she discusses television especially series of the 1950s and 1960s such as I Love Lucy and Ozzie and Harriet I kept reading since the
