Kelly (formerly of My Healthy Passion) and I had a girls night in lastnight. Both of the husbands were out of town doing boy things, so we curled up at her house with a couple of movies. Obviously, chick flicks reigned.
The Bounty Hunter
Ok, I wanted to like this movie. I love Jennifer Aniston. I was Team Jennifer during the whole Brad Pitt War, though honestly it was mostly on principle being against cheating and all. I actually like Angelina, too, and think she is one of the most beautiful women ever. A little dark (remember the vile of blood thing? What?!), but now that she’s left the Morticia Adams-style behind she’s gorgeous. I digress. Back to the movie. It was terrible. I don’t really know what else to say. It was kinda of poorly written even as RomComs go and really all over the place. Kelly and I both decided that we weren’t invested in the relationship, so we didn’t really care what happened to them. That’s a death sentence for a romance movie, comic or otherwise. Neither of us recommend this one.
The Backup Plan
We really liked this one. It was hilarious in parts and ooey gooey in others. Perfect for what we were looking for. It scares you a bit on the pregnancy and kid front (I’m having slight heart palpitations for my near future), but it was all around a great chick flick. 4 thumbs up from lastnight’s audience.
Anybody seen anything else good lately? I still want to see The Kids are Alright, Eat Pray Love (once I finish the book) and Inception in the theaters, but I may need some more video ideas for tonight.
