Movie Time

We have not been to the movies much at all in the past few months due to our extremely tight budget, but this week I've gotten to go to a couple of matinees. It's been so fun!

First Vince and I took the kiddos to see this:
If you haven't seen it, you should!! I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!! The kiddos loved it, too:) It's just adorable and it had such great moral themes throughout (not just at the end). And I'll admit, Vince and I were both teared up the end.

Then I went with a girlfriend to see this:

Oh, this was funny! I can so remember planning my wedding, I think I was a little obsessed with it (I still have my planner and my *special* notebook!). I mean, after being a bridesmaid 9 times I had some definite ideas about what I did and did not want at mine. My friend and I really enjoyed this and then we had fun telling our own wedding stories afterwards over dinner:)

Have you seen any good movies lately? I'd love to hear what you've seen!

Besides the one with the kids that you mentioned, I'd have to say I "enjoyed" Yes Man! It was cute, by far not one of the best Jim has done.
I think there were aspects of the movie that me and my friend enjoyed because it reminded us of some real life issues we just came out of.

I want to see both of these. That is the cutest little mouse! (those adorable ears!!) And, yes, I clearly remember the wedding planning phase with you...obssessive is a good word. =)

So, Kari, what are you trying to say? Huh?

Those are both movies on my to-see list. I haven't been to an actual movie, at an actual movie theater, in at least 5 years. But my oldest and I are planning an afternoon out to see The Tale of Despereaux. Bride Wars will probably have to wait until it's on video though.

We took Little Miss to see"Tale of Despereaux" over the holidays. We all LOVED it! It was so refreshing to see a well-made movie with a great moral message throughout! This is definitely one we will purchase!

Haven't seen Bride Wars yet, but would like to. Also want to see "New In Town" which is coming out this week, I believe. I'm a HUGE Harry Connick fan, so it's a must-see. Also saw "Valkyrie" over the holidays...very well done, but not a feel-good movie if that's what you're looking for.

I want to see Bride Wars, but I hadn't even heard of the other movie. My kids would probably love it.
