"Two and a Half Men" Recap & Review - "Look at me, Mommy. I'm pretty"

Two and a Half Men
"Look at me, Mommy. I’m pretty"

Original Air Date: April 28, 2008

Victoria – TwoCents Reviewer

Evelyn gets married. Charlie becomes a stalker. Alan becomes a gay man. Jake does much of nothing and Berta throws frozen butterflies. Just another day in Malibu for the Harper boys.

Alan is doing his best impersonation of a gay wedding planner as he spends the entire episode worrying about flowers and frozen butterflies – oh and keeping Charlie and Courtney (their about-to-be step sis played by Jenny McCarthy) out of each other’s pants. Courtney surprises everyone when she announces she has no problem avoiding sex with Charlie – she’s actually fond of how close she and Evelyn have become and wants to keep it that way.

    Evelyn gets married. Charlie becomes a stalker. Alan becomes a gay man. Jake does much of nothing and Berta throws frozen butterflies. Just another day in Malibu for the Harper boys.

    Alan is doing his best impersonation of a gay wedding planner as he spends the entire episode worrying about flowers and frozen butterflies – oh and keeping Charlie and Courtney (their about-to-be step sis played by Jenny McCarthy) out of each other’s pants. Courtney surprises everyone when she announces she has no problem avoiding sex with Charlie – she’s actually fond of how close she and Evelyn have become and wants to keep it that way.

    The blended family goes to dinner together – insert obligatory Jake scene here. Seriously, the kid gets one scene an episode – tops – lately. Makes me wonder if they are going to pull a Rudy Huxtable and bring in a cuter, quirkier kid (I’m talking to you, Olivia) since Angus seems to be going through an awkward phase and the producers obviously don’t like it. Anyway, at the dinner the future Mr. Evelyn informs everyone he doesn’t want a prenup. This makes Courtney angry and storms away from the dinner table. Charlie goes to the women’s bathroom to find her – hoping to get some angry sex. Alan joins them. Evelyn comes in as Charlie and Alan hide in a stall. After the girls leave a whole bunch of female washroom-related humor ensues. Not the brightest banter that’s come out of a show usually ripe with quick, brilliant dialogue.

    After din-din Charlie stalks Courtney, by hanging outside her apartment and calling her incessantly. Rose shows up there and gives Charlie some stalking advice and equipment, like a pee jar and night vision goggles. Creepy!

    Next thing you know, the Teddy shows up and jumps into the back seat. He’s worried Evelyn will find out he knew about Chuck and his daughter and will call off the wedding. Rose decides to do some stalking of sugar daddy Teddy, you know, just for fun. (Creepy!)

    Back in Malibu, Charlie admits that he’s so obsessed with Courtney he can’t even get through a three-way without picturing her as both the girls he’s with. He attributes it to the fact that she’s a female version of himself. In other words she’s got numerous emotional problems, a plethora of bad habits and is missing several sets of morals – yeah… that’s hot.

    Then Charlie calls Rose and asks her to stalk Rose for him when she’s done with Teddy (creepy!)

    After Courtney has another blow up with Teddy, Charlie goes to talk to her. Turns out she’s lost her job and is about to lose her condo. Charlie offers to help her but then she mentions she needs $50,000 and he kinda bails on that idea. But as soon as she turns on the water works he insists she takes the cash and she makes out with him. Apparently the rumors are wrong – $50,000 is the real panty-remover, not Lemon Gin. Charlie acts like he’s going to do the noble thing and walk away from sex so no one feels like a dirty whore… but dirty whore is in this month and the two get naked.

    Later they all stumble through the awkward and inappropriate ceremony and as they kiss Berta appears on the balcony shaking a cardboard box full of still frozen – possibly dead butterflies. She yells helpfully “Do you want me to put them in the microwave for a few seconds and try again?”

    And…That’s when my TiVo stopped. Apparently the Seattle feed I was watching ran past 9:30pm. If anybody knows if I missed anything good – please leave it in the comments! Thanks guys!

    The Recap in Quotes:“I do not want to cheap out on what is very possibly be my last wedding” – Evelyn

    “I’ve got plenty of my own money. Of course don’t tell Charlie and Alan they are annoying enough as it is.” – Evelyn to Courtney.

    “Whatever money she has most likely has an ancient curse attached to it.” – Charlie

    “Everyone keeps their troublemakers in their pants.” Alan to Charlie and Courtney.

    “She’s me with indoor plumbing.” – Charlie about Courtney.
    “I could ask you that question and the answer would be the same – stalking.” – Rose to Charlie about what she’s doing outside Charlie’s car which is parked outside Courtney’s apartment.

    “The other day I stumbled into a three way…” Charlie.

    “Love makes everyone a little gay.” – Evelyn.

    “Okay… the butterflies…. Just so you know there is a 50-50 chance that seagulls will swoop down and rip them to shreds.” – Alan

    The title line “Look at Me Mommy, I’m pretty” was uttered by Evelyn. She was talking about how Alan used to dress up in her things when he was little.

    What are your thoughts on the episode? Is Charlie getting way too creepy and silly? Do you want more Jake? Leave your Two Cents in the comments!

  2. What about Charlie asking Cort. to MARRY HIM?! and her accepting?! What was that all about - came out of left-field, no?

  3. Two and a Half Men, while funnier than some shows like Family Guy and South Park, is not near as funny as some other shows like How I Met Your Mother and even Scrubs.watch Two and a Half Men Online
