How do they do that?

I don't know the name of the film; I just walked through the room while housemate Liam was snoring in front of a movie -- which had a man and a woman on-screen in a 5' long bathtub. From having walked through the room previously, I know the man to be a bit over six feet tall, and the woman about five and a half feet. How can they both fit in a five foot long tub?

At a guess, it's a bottomless prop tub, and they're both sitting tailor-fashion on a platform underneath, with a plastic sheet to hold up the bath-bubbles between them. I'm about her size, and I can't fit comfortably in a tub that size all by myself, let alone adding in another person bigger than I am.

"I know the man to be a bit over six feet tall, and the woman about five and a half feet. How can they both fit in a five foot long tub?"

Because they're both sitting up. The five-foot-long tub doesn't have to accommodate their entire bodies, only from their hips down, which is surely less than five feet. Their legs can intermingle, and if they want to submerge their upper bodies, they need only bend their knees and slide down.

*grins* Trust the Voice of Experience.

Due to the Hollywood allergy to boobs, they were *not* both sitting up, they were slouched down so the bubbles would come up to the tops of their shoulders.

If they'd sat up straight enough to fit in the tub, only their legs and butts would be in the water. Sorta defeats the purpose of taking a bath.

Hmmm. So you think they were never in a real tub at all? That would make sense in light of the Hollywood allergy to getting naked.

"If they'd sat up straight enough to fit in the tub, only their legs and butts would be in the water. Sorta defeats the purpose of taking a bath."

Would depend how deep the bathtub was. In those old claw-foot tubs, one can sit up straight with the water at just about perfect boob-floating height, so if there were bubbles, they would be about shoulder-height.

Happy belated Hanukkah, by the way - it came so early this year, I didn't realize it had already passed. *hugs*

Ah that pesky thing called reality ;)

Gotta love when suspend disnelief makes a tv show more enjoyable ;)

Maybe you need to suspend disbelief? ;)

Not one of my better tricks.
