Date Night...............

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.

Take Care,
Keena

I love going to the movies, but there are 4 of us and it costs quite a bit. So, we don't attend as much as we used to. I'd love to have free movie tickets! What a blessing! Don't take this for granted--enjoy each other's company and have a great time. Many blessings to you and yours.

Beautiful blog background, Keena! Isn't it wonderful how God provided that little break from all the stress you have been under so that you and your hubby could relax for a few hours. He is soooooo good!
Blessings!

A friend of mine has been trying to convince me to see Bridesmaids. Sometimes crass humor is just not my speed, but I've considered it. Great to read your review. It may help me figure out whether or not I'll take a chance on it.

Sounds like you had a great time. Bridesmaid is one of the movie I want to see when it goes to the cheap theater. Thanks for the review. P.S. I love Mike and Molly

Sounds like you had a great 'double-feature' date night! How wonderful that he gets free tickets. I love movies! I had to opt to have a friend over for movies last night since my little guy isn't quite ready for the theater yet.

God bless!

I love doing date night!! We take turns planning our date night, and we only allot so much money.... so sometimes we have to get creative.

I am so happy to read that you got to go out and see a couple funny movies! Laughter is always best on date night. I cannot remember the last time I went out to the movies. It can be such fun.

Hope you are feeling better! and thanks for the great movie reviews.
