Another movie night dud. Why do the marketing gods-that-be insist on touting movies as COMEDIES during the TV trailers and ads - and then you pay FULL PRICE to see it only to discover it's a deep, dark, angst ridden drama with a few supposed comedy sketches thrown in to ease the BOREDOM. If you were wondering at all about whether or not to see "The Dilemma" with Kevin James and Vince Vaughn - lemme save ya the trouble. Don't do it. Just don't waste the money or the gift card. I am disappointed in Ron Howard. He usually does better. Makes me wonder if he was having some personal issues that he chose to resolve on the big screen. Totally not worth the $$, good popcorn or no. If ya wanna see it - wait for the DVD.
Seriously - I wish somebody would PAY me to be a movie critic. Cuz there have been some doozies lately. I can't count True Grit, cuz it was a remake of one already made, and a John Wayne movie to boot (pun intended). Not all of us are western/Wayne fans, but ya gotta throw one in for the hubby every once in awhile. But it seems like whatever we saw before that was sucky too. (I can't even remember what it was - I just remember telling hubby that I was picking from now on - mistake).
But movie critique aside, at least DH and I had a night out - something we haven't done (both dinner and movie ALONE) in awhile. Our last night out was to a hockey game and included our nephew. The last movie was a Sunday afternoon matinee after a home cooked dinner. So at least we had some time together - and I guess that's what's important. Bad movie or no.
Ok, I'm done now. Sorry beaders. But that's why I used "babbling" in the title - cuz I do....
