Theta Mom Thursday and Movie Reviews

It is Theta Mom Thursday once again and I am happy to report that this month I was able to sneak out of the house not once, but twice! I know… I can’t believe it either! This month I was able to go out with the girls one evening for a movie and drinks. I also convinced my husband to hire a baby-sitter and we went to lunch and a movie on a different day. I enjoyed both dates, even though the movies weren’t the best. My girlfriends and I went to see Remember Me, starring Robert Pattison and Emilie de Ravin. Remember Me is a romantic drama that focuses on two lovers that have lost loved ones in the past. This movie starts intense and ends intense. The problem is, the extra stuff in the middle, was very boring! I can’t say that it was the worse movie I’d ever seen (although a few of my friends did say that), but it definitely wasn’t very good. The acting was poor and storyline very slow. My recommendation is to skip it or wait for the DVD.

Luckily, the second movie was much better. My husband and I saw The Bounty Hunter, starring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston. I’m not sure if they categorize The Bounty Hunter as a romantic comedy, but that seems to be the best description for it. That being said, my husband didn’t enjoy it as much as I did. He is usually happiest when things are being blown up, and unfortunately for him (lucky for me), there weren’t too many things being destroyed in this movie. Although I enjoyed The Bounty Hunter, I probably wouldn’t see it again. Some movies I can watch repeatedly and never get bored. I was glad that I saw this one, but I have no need to re-watch it. My recommendation is, if you need to get out of the house to see a movie, this one won’t disappoint. But if you miss it on the big screen, the DVD will be just fine. Did you find any time to yourself this past month? Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!

OH I wanted to see Remember Me only because you know who is in it but now not so sure? That is something I haven't done in awhile, go on a movies date!

Thanks so much for the movie reviews! I couldn't tell you when I was in a movie theater! And when I was last there, it was to see a children's movie!! Sounds like you enjoyed your Theta Mom Time Out!

I'm so jealous that you got out to see TWO films. "Remember Me" looked pretty heavy -- I appreciate the warning. If I get an evening out, I won't waste it there.

I really enjoyed Gerard Butler in "The Ugly Truth" and this looked like a similar character so I was interested in seeing it. My husband is the same way. Romantic comedies are not his thing!

I've wanted to see that Bounty Hunter. Maybe I'll make it out this weekend. It's been a while since I've seen a movie at the Theater. I decided to wait to see Remember Me on DVD. Thanks for letting me know I made the right decision.

Oh, I haven't seen a movie in a theater in years!! Thanks for the reviews! I wouldn't even know what is out there right now.

Hubby and I were sitting in the movie theater parking lot trying to decide what to see. We were thinking Bounty Hunter, so he got out his phone and looked up the reviews. Not many positive reviews on that one, so we skipped it. I was sad, but now I have a reason to drag him to it anyway. :-)
