The Hottie & the Nottie (2008) (part 4 of 5)
In the next scene, Nate has somehow roped “Cole Slawsen” back into his plans. He’s got the guy tied up in Arno’s basement, strapped to a machine, all wrapped up in duct tape and wires, with electrodes taped to his nipples. Ugh. I’m getting so very tired.
Nate explains that they’re going to do “aversion therapy”. Which translates to: showing him a blown-up photo of a hot bikini model, and giving him an electric shock, and then showing him a blown-up photo of June, and feeding him ice cream. Moving on.
At one point, Nate tells “Cole” not to dwell on the negatives. “Your Medieval Times goblet is half full!” What? I’m guessing “Cole” was supposed to be like a stock nerd character (because we all know how much nerds love Medieval Times), but in reality, the actor they got doesn’t look that much nerdier than the actor playing Nate, or The Greg Wilson.
Then Arno pulls out a pocket watch, and dangles it in front of “Cole’s” face. It appears Nate intends to hypnotize “Cole” into being attracted to June. Well, at least they’re being upfront now about completely ripping off Shallow Hal.
