Last night my hubby and I was able to do something thing we hadn't done in years. We went to the movies. He found out that he gets free movie tickets from his employer, so we took advantage of him getting off early and went to see not ONE, but TWO movies. The first movie we watched was Jim Carey's "Mr Popper's Penguins". It was a cute, family orientated movie. It was one of those man works to hard, doesn't see his kids often enough then through the gift of a penguin changes. It's funny, fun loving, and a good natured movie. I give it a thumbs ups.
However, Bridesmaid is a different type of funny. I would NOT take my children to this one. It is full of adult humor, sometimes crass. It has some adult language, adult themes, and a pretty realistic sex scene to start the movie off. It is about friendship and the how friendship changes when one friend gets married while the other friend's life seemingly goes down the drain. It is a good movie about sticking together through life curves. I laughed so hard I couldn't breath @ times. Although I would classify this as a "chick-flick", my hubby got a kick out of it. The most amazing part(to me) was that of the groom's sister. It was played by Melissa McCarthy-the pretty overweight girl of CBS' Mike and Molly. The way they had her NOT made up was incredible. She look SO different. She was not the pretty overweight girl but the drab looking fat girl. You'd just have to see to believe.
It was fun going out with my hubby. We had a great time. If you see any movies this summer, I would love to hear your reviews since my husband is getting free tix and we WILL be going more often.
I pray that all have a great Sunday and a great week.
