The Weekend Run Down

I usually fall asleep when we watch movies at night but this weekend I stayed awake for three flicks– all very different but each quite good:

Definitely, Maybe
Starts out slow but I found myself loving Ryan Reynolds and Abigail Breslin throughout. This one is a girl movie but Jonathan sat threw it without too much complaining. If you’re in need of a chick flick, treat yourself to this movie.

Under the Same Moon
A story of a young boy from Mexico who travels to the U.S. in search of his mother, working here illegally as a house cleaner. The movie definitely has an “angle” it’s promoting, but I couldn’t help but fall in love with Carlitos and his perseverance.

Loved this movie and didn’t think I would! Considering I hate numbers and don’t gamble, I’m actually surprised I liked this movie as much as I did. It’s based on the book Bringing Down the House– a somewhat true tale of MIT students who make big bucks in Vegas playing blackjack.

You have the read Bringing Down the House. I am barely literate and I polished it off in 3 days or so. It's the kind of good that will have you looking at the clock at 1 am and hating yourself for not being able to put it down.

Despite the Van Wilder movies and fact that he was once engaged to Alanis, I have long had a celebrity crush on Ryan Reynolds and am very jealous of Megan right now. Such a cute movie! I rented 4 movies the other night (I got two older ones free) and Definitely Maybe was one of them. I got so much crap for renting The Last Mimzy (apparently it's only for kids) but you know how I love kid movies and I loved it.


i saw definitely, maybe the other night with anna. i agree, it started slow, but i ended up liking and appreciating it. it was not predictable.
