Now, back to our regularly scheduled
FRIDAY MATINEE on
After church I met up with the family for a movie....we went to see Four Christmases with Vince Vaughn and Reese Wither
Let's just cut to the chase...it stunk. I mean it really stunk big time. Go ahead and see it, and if you like it, then you
First of all....I love Vince Vaughn more than you can even imagine. It borders on scary. But this movie was so never going to happen in real life, not even in Disney real life. How's this....Bolt was more realistic!
There were funny moments, and some hysterical moments. But the story? It stunk. Did I already say that?
I was disappointed in the silly roles that Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek had. But....there was one bright moment for me.
Jon Voight. His role as Katie's father was very touching. It was a serious and heartfelt scene. I could feel the love he has for his daughter...his real life daughter. I hate that he can't do anything to reconcile with her. He's a man I admire for many reasons, and I'm glad they didn't give him a silly slap stick role.
After the movies we headed back to my daughter's home.
It was a family affair and Marianne, my son-in-law's mother, made him his favorite egg rolls. I scooted out before dinner because this is the last evening they will share together in a long time. She heads back to Arizona in the morning, and he heads back to Iraq in January. That's an Adidas logo that lit up from the flash...what?
They usually have a huge tree....somehow I was surprised (pleasantly) that the kids picked out a cute short one...well 6+ feet.
I don't know what it looks like finished, but they were having a blast.
Along with new laptops and the like from their Oma.
I think JJ wants to go to Arizona!
Oh, and the movie?? I give it two and a half skunks!
