Amy Poehler And Will Arnett Blue-Ball My Parent Trap-Watching Self By Briefly Reuniting

Posted on Dec 28 2012 - 12:13pm by Susan Lee

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, if I didn’t love the two of you so much, I’d be real peeved at you right now, you know that? This couple, aka the greatest loss the Married Celebrity Community suffered this year, briefly reunited to walk around the city (this city! my city!) and ride the subway together with their two kids, Archie and Abel.

Guhhhhh I don’t even know where to start. My whole insides are a mash of confusion. On the one hand, I really and truly love that these two are mature enough that they can still hang out and be normal human beings even though they used to be married to each other and aren’t anymore. It’s super inspiring and all that blah blah blah.

But on the other hand — why must you tantalize me like this, Willamy Poehnett? You know that I sit home all day and look for clues in the internet that indicate you might get back together! You know that! You know I’ve been trying to determine your whereabout so I can send delicate, kid-friendly smoke signals to the A-babies so they can engineer some kind of little kid swap ala  The Parent Trap. I can acknowledge that it would absolutely not work, on account of Archie and Abel not being A. identical or B. twins, but it’s a beautiful storyboard that I’ve put together in my brain, so don’t spoil it! Also upon reflection, I think the boys are still too young to truly master a British accent, which as we all know is a crucial element of any successful bait-and-switch.

So ultimately I guess I have to accept that life isn’t a movie, and sometimes when two adults walk around the city together, it’s not because they’re falling back in love again over the heads of a couple of adorable, pre-DUI  Lindsay Lohans. What a cruel, cruel world.
