I’m not a huge movie buff, but I usually like seeing a few a year. There is something really nice and simple about sitting in a big, dark room and being entertained.
I originally was not too thrilled about the movie, “Bridesmaids.” It looked like a girl version of “The Hangover,” and kinda stupid. After reading a few very positive reviews (and a 90% rating from Rotten Tomatoes – yay!), I was convinced and even managed to get BF to see it with me :)
I’m glad I went to see it, even though it’s not exactly a “big screen” movie. (I consider “big screen” movies to be explosions and action movies.) Kristen Wiig stars as Annie, our heroine, and she also co-wrote the movie.
The movie was funny and smart. It dealt with the superficial issues to real issues of loneliness and self esteem. And, it was done in a cheeky and hilarious manner. I seriously laughed and cried during this movie (more laughing than crying, though).
Even BF enjoyed it. Though, he won’t admit it – I saw the way he laughed through it :)
Verdict: I think it is the perfect movie for a date night or a girl’s night. How often can you say that? ;)
On a personal finance note, we really should have used a coupon (Rainbow Cinema – $6 each) instead of paying full price at AMC ($13.50 each). It was a last minute decision, and we don’t do this often, so I’m okay with it, but we will be thrifty about our next movie.
Are you a movie buff? Any good movies lately that you’ve seen? Would you go watch Bridesmaids?
