I saw several posts before the weekend about plans and I was hoping to see a few reviews. I had hoped to see "Deja Vu" and "Bobby," but an upset stomach (blame it on the post-Thanksgiving Japanese) kept me at home today. I did catch up on some good and not-so-good DVDs. Dear hubby picked most of these and, overall, he did an okay job. Nothing to serious. Here's what I saw:
Click - In my opinion, this is one of Adam Sandler's best movies. It was very funny. It was also pretty tame for young ones. Sandler is given a magic remote which enables him to fast forward through the boring or difficult times of his life. At the end, he realizes how very much he's missed.
You, Me and Dupree - I highly recommend this movie if you're looking for some meaningless laughter. Owen Wilson is great in it. The premise is simple: a couple of newlyweds take in the husband's best friend when he's down on his luck. A few days turn into months. The husband's friendship is destroyed. The wife discovers a new friend. If you've ever taken in your hubby/significant other's friends even for a few days, you'll find this move to be very realistic!
The Break Up - Jennifer Anniston does a very good job in this movie, playing straight to Vince Vaughn's comedy. It's hilarious. After watching it, my husband and I had a lot of fun figuring out exactly how we could share the house instead of selling the house. Interesting arrangement.
The Faculty - I would have never planned to watch this movie. A group of high school misfits fight off aliens that are taking over the faculty. I woke up on Saturday morning and my husband had just put it in. Well, it can't be much worse than the stuff on CNN, right? Actually, I found myself drawn into the movie. It's very sophmoric. There's not a lot of slice-and-dice like most horror flicks geared for teens. I'm almost ashamed to say I enjoyed it. consider it a guilty pleasure. It's not very scary, but it is kind of interesting to see the teens uncover and fight the invasion.
Maybe next weekend, I'll opt for something more serious. I'd love to read some reviews on both in-theatre movies or DVD offerings.
