‘ATM Errak…error’ is a film by GTH, the feel-good studio of Thailand and is being released nationwide Thailand on January 19th, 2012. There is a scene in the 2nd trailer for the film that is not in the international Englished subbed trailer that I found hilarious.
First off, the synopsis of the film:
Sua (Ter – Chantavit Dhnasevi) and Jib (Ice -Preechaya Pongthananikorn) are like any other couple in this world except for one exception: for the past 5 years they have kept their relationship a secret since the bank where they are employed has a strict “No Fraternization” policy. It’s not a big deal until they decide to get married. The only problem? Which one of these two Type-A overachievers will put marriage before a career and resign? With neither willing to take the leap of faith they both turn incident into opportunity when an ATM glitch in Chonburi province cashes out over $130,000 baht. The terms are simple: whoever is able to recover the money first gets to keep their job. The couple will turn into no holds barred competitors. Who will literally “go big” in their career or “go home” in this romantic comedy about what two people won’t do for each other in the name of love? It’s the age old battle of the sexes but this time around how can victory be easily declared in a war where there are no more traditional “rules of engagement”
To the funny scene I was talking about. The characters Sua and Jib are arguing in the elevator about their relationship and who should quit their position at the bank and become the homemaker. Sua refuses because he is a man, Jib argues everyone is doing it–the wife is the main breadwinner in the relationship. Na Ah, according to Sua, only gigolos do that and he ain’t no gigolo. HAHA.
The full conversation:
Jib:’I can’t take this any more. Are you dating me or am I your mistress? Why do we have to hide? If people find out about us, where can I hide my face?’
Sua:’fine, lets get marry then.’
Jib:’Okay, so that means you are going to resign.’
Sua:’and proposed to you, but I didn’t tell you I was going to resign. You are resigning, I’ll take care of you.’
Jib:’Why can’t I take care of you?’
Sua:’What guy will have a woman take care of him?’
Jib:’Nowadays some people are doing it?’
Sua:’The people you are referring to are gigolos. JIB!’
The scene starts at the 1:30 time mark:
