We watched three movies in the last few days. One I had seen in the theaters, but the girls didn’t, so we rented it.
The least interesting and quality film we saw was this, “He’s just not that into you”. I was a Sex in the City fan, and I remember when Berger told Miranda this about a guy, and it was like a light bulb moment, she suddenly understood what was going on. Then a book was written with the same title, sort of a how not to find a man book, I didn’t read it, I have a man. Atlast this film was made, not exactly a stellar moment for movie goers. A fairly good cast with Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly, and Ben Affleck.
It had a few laughs, made me recall my at times desparate single moments but mostly meh.
Skip it, I’d give it a 2 out of 5.
We all watched Hotel for Dogs, and while the story is a bit sad in the beginning, orphaned brother and sister are willing to steal and cheat for money for food. They hide their dog, the only other thing they share from their once wonderful family life. This plays like a Disney movie, but it’s produced by Nickelodeon, so close. It has cute dogs, nice enough teens and kids and Lisa Kudrow and Kevin Dillon playing the wacky foster parents. Don Cheadle is the caring social worker.
Good family movie, I give it 3-4/5 stars.
This PG-13 movie Kevin, Nick and I saw in the theater. I know I know why am I taking my 11 year old to see violent movies. Liam Neeson portrays a man whose teen daughter is kidnapped and taken into the very savory world of slave trading young women. He is a former spy and his background gives him the tools to track down the most disgusting people and practices.
It was a good older teen/adult movie. Nick loved it ofcourse, but it wasn’t really a movie for him. I’m a bad mom…LOL.
This movie has action, suspense, and keeps you wondering what is going to happen.
My rating, 4 out of 5 stars!
Summer movie watching is so much fun in our house!
