So Many Emotions; So Little Time

Feel like laughing, feel like crying?

Feel like having your daughter nudge you and tell you to "Stop crying!"?

Feel like eating some popcorn, with just a little bit o' butter?

Feel like slamming a humongo Diet Coke that'll make you have to pee six times?

Then go see This Movie, particularly with your family and you'll be doing all this and more. Well, if you buy the popcorn, and the humongo drink, and if you sit near your daughter, if you have a daughter, and if you think it's funny, and endearing and sad, and humorous, and if you like Steve Martin, and that dude from American Pie, you know the dad who catches his son spanking into an apple pie, and if you liked the first one, which really isn't the original because the first one was an original and the movie-first one was a remake of the original, which I think was black and white, and didn't really have the same storyline as the first movie one... well, then, maybe, just maybe you'll like this movie too.

I did. Very much.

Wow, my first movie review. Maybe I should do this for a living? I gave you some good clues, but didn't give the movie away, I probably piqued your interest, maybe made you think you'd want to see this movie, or at the very least, go see some movie so you can get some of that popcorn with a little bit o' butter, and one of those big drinks, and you may choose to get some of those Reese's Pieces, or Junior Mints or Snowcaps (I would definitely vascilate between the Junior Mints or Snowcaps, but didn't tonight because of previous Fat Girl posts), and okay, I'm just going to shut up now and you can decide for yourself if you feel like going to see a movie.

But it was really, really good, and the tears were really streaming down my face. If you go see it, and you don't cry, well, then, we can just assume I was all teary-eyed for hormonal reasons, which it is that time, which makes me rethink things and wonder WHY THE HELL DIDN'T I JUST GET SOME DAMNED SNOWCAPS!?!?

Thanks for the review. I love Bonnie Hunt. I don't get to the movies that often so will probably rent it when it comes out.

Movie popcorn is the best.

I loved the book, so I might have to try it out.

Have you seen Walk the Line? I'd love to hear a review on that. :-)

Thanks for the review, I am taking the kids to see it next week. I am glad to hear it is a good movie before I fork out $10 bucks for me and oldest and $8 bucks for each kid to see it, plus popcorn.

Snowcaps were ALWAYS my FAVORITE!!!! ... And you know what? I don't know what happened, but I HATE the smell of popcorn at the theater anymore. It just smells really icky to me. It always TASTES good, but the smell grosses me out. Weird, huh?

NDG and I went to go see Narnia the other night (loved it!) and that's when I noticed I didn't like the smell anymore.

But now I'm thinking about snowcaps. Mmmmm.... :)

Your first review was excellent. But if you want to go mainstream you have to criticize it mercilessly unless there are gay men in it.

:D

I haven't seen either, but I really want to! I'm glad you liked it! Now maybe I will see it!

The snowcaps line kills me!

LOL I want to go see this movie next week. Thanks for the review :-). I like your blog btw. Great reads..

actually, movie theater popcorn probably has move calories than all the candy they sell combined. Next time, just get the snocaps.

I am certain I would be crying and embarass my daugher like I sobbed through Narnia and embarassed my children. Oh well, it is just practice for when they are teenagers and I REALLY embarass them.
