As busy as I was this past week, I somehow managed to watch several movies. (And I made headway on the 2 books I'm reading!) Here's the skinny.
Margot at the Wedding - I watched this one with my friend Lisa, and I think we both finished this movie saying, "Huh?!" The cast includes Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh, who I have adored in other roles. Suffice it to say, there's a good reason that you've probably never heard of this flick. Don't make the same mistake that we did.
The Lucky Ones - I really enjoyed this movie! It stars Tim Robbins, Rachel McAdams, & Michael Pena as injured Iraq war vets who have come home to deal with personal challenges. At times, it felt like the movie dragged a bit, but overall, hubby & I both gave this one 2 thumbs up.
Eagle Eye - GREAT MOVIE! Shia LeBeouf has redeemed himself (in my eyes) after that Indiana Jones debacle from a few weeks ago. This is a thriller with some great action sequences and a cast that is fab. Two thumbs way up!
The Ex - This is a great little movie that didn't get a lot of press, I guess. It stars Zach Braff (always hilarious), Amanda Peet (who I adore) and Jason Bateman (who plays evil a little too well). Zach & Amanda play a married couple whose relationship is tested by her old flame, Jason. Lots of great supporting characters in this flick and some GREAT writing! I definitely recommend this one.
I'm super excited that I have a "mom date" tomorrow with my buddy Shannon. We're going to see The Proposal. Ryan Reynolds...SWOON!
See y'all next week!
