#537: Friends with Strings

December 9, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Why is there an establishing shot in this strip? Because I wanted to show the (slightly) remodeled lobby! (If you'd like to get a closer look at it, vote for Multiplex at TopWebComics; there's a new vote incentive.)

Why are there leaves on the trees still? Because I messed up! Let's just pretend this took place a little over a week ago, before it snowed here in Chicago, and then it's not as big of a deal.

Obviously, because this is Multiplex, the movies Jason and Kurt are talking — No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits — about are both real (and you can watch their trailers via that link).

There's also another movie called Friends with Kids starring Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, and Megan Fox, which is about a group of platonic thirty-somethings who decide to make babies (literally) and date other people, and while I don't know what happens next, I bet it gets complicated!

And let's not forget the 2009 indie movie Friends (with Benefits) that like five people saw or the upcoming Friends with Benefits TV series from the creators of (500) Days of Summer.

And you thought two asteroid movies coming out at about the same time was madness.
