Well the other Friday night I actually went out after 8pm! Shocking for me, but my bff and I went to the movies. The movies, at night, not a matinee, and not a Disney movie! This is not normal for me. The last "grown up" movie I saw was "Chicago" with my mom. The last movie my husband and I went to the movies and saw was "Independance Day", I think that was in 1994, but I'm not sure. So, this was a big night for me. I did not have a pocketbook full of popcorn, candy and drinks, (not that I would EVER sneak food into the movies!) that would be sooooo wrong! The first thing I noticed about going to the movies at night is that it is very, very expensive! I remembered that I had a movie "rewards" card, so I used it when I bought my ticket (for $9.50) UGH!! And then my bff used it too. After we got our tickets we went straight for the snack area, which my bff kept reminding me that if we had time before hand we could of gotten tons of snacks and snuck them in my pocketbook. Just so you know, my pocketbook is HUGE, I could fit a small child, or all of Paris Hilton's dogs in there! But like I said before, I would never ever sneak food into the movies. So, there we were looking at the huge display of crap, and the kid behind the counter asked, "would you like a pizza tonight?" What? A pizza? Are you kidding me?? When did they start selling pizza at the movies?? And why would you eat a pizza in the dark? Knowing me I would be wearing half the pizza on my shirt! So, I declined the pizza, but chose a small popcorn for $5.50, another ugh, and a small jug of soda for $4.50, ugh, ugh! I of course remembered to use my "rewards" card. I asked the cashier, "what do I get for using this card?" and he replies, "points". Wow, really, points?? That is wicked awesome! Um, no, what the heck do I do with points????? I guess eventually I might actually get a discounted or free item...maybe a pizza!
Ya'know, I don't know how the movie theaters do it...I don't really like popcorn that much and I definitely cannot drink a 2 liter of soda, but guess what, I bought them anyways! Subliminal messages! So we went and saw "Get Smart". I am a big Steve Carell fan, and this movie was really funny, stupid yea, but funny. I had to stop eating my popcorn numerous times because I was choking from laughing so hard. And my bff laughed so hard that she snorted, so that is usually a good indication that something is really funny! Don't expect deep dialogue or anything serious, just a really good laugh. So that is my movie review, I wonder why I'm not a movie critic....oh that's right, I completely ramble on and on and on. ~Stacy
