Is My Sister’s Keeper The Chick Flick To End All Chick Flicks?

The trailer for My Sister’s Keeper starring Cameron Diaz as an old mom, Jason Patric trying to play someone other than the rapist in Your Friends And Neighbors, Alec Baldwin as a TV lawyer, and Abigail Breslin as, apparently, a little girl who is an asshole. Everybody here wants an Oscar soooo baaad:

I know it’s based on a book, but it’s like a studio executive yelled “Get me a movie about a hot couple with a kid with cancer, and get the director of The Notebook to direct it!” I’m not saying this movie won’t make me cry when I inevitably see it, I’m just saying I’ll be hate-crying hate-tears. (Also, Jason Patric is and forever will be the locker room rapist from Your Friends And Neighbors, and should just take that character on the road or something and stop trying.)
