Really? Katy Perry is the Hottest Woman of 2013? Yes, according to Men's Health. Yes, despite the fact that 2013 is less than a week old. Okay, I could go for miles and miles on the subject of why Katy Perry is probably not even the hottest woman in the room most of the time.
But I won't.
After all, this is a column that is supposed to focus on comedy movies. I could go for miles and miles about how a really funny comedy could be made just from collecting all the footage from the interviews with Katy Perry that is available. I could even suggest that a comedy movie that outdoes "Borat" could be made by assembling actual footage of Katy Perry and constructing a film that stimulates arguments over whether she is playing an airhead or is really just that mindless herself.
But I won't.
What I will suggest is that a mockumentary-that-just-might-be-a-real-documentary is right there in front of every struggling filmmaker wanting to make a name for himself. Imagine the kind of comedy that could be mined from a film that delves into the world of secretive high-level meetings of the best and brightest minds working for entities like Men's Health.
The year 2012 is not going to be remembered for the comedy classics that were released by Hollywood. All that could be made up in one swift move by making a movie about just how much time is wasted and just how heightened the tension gets when guys (I'm assuming these kinds of lists are mostly made up of guys) get paid to draw up a list of the hottest celebrity women according to strictly defined concepts of what makes a woman attractive in Western culture.
Clearly, one of those concepts is most definitely not intelligence, but then who really thinks that actually being able to spend more than two minutes listening to a woman talk has anything to do with her being hot?
Definitely not the guys over at Men's Health. Or Maxim. Or Ask Men. In fact, judging by the decision of Men's Health, the only criterion for hotness seems to be breast size.
