..and a movie review
When Grandma J last reported, she was dealing with a personal physical
Anyway, yesterday, Grandma J put on her sunglasses and headed out to the pool for her daily aqua aerobics class. Throughout the class she kept dunking her head in
Then it was off to a matinee to see Date Night starring Steve Carell as Phil Foster, a tax attorney, and Tina Fey as his wife, Claire, a realtor, living in suburban New Jersey with two kids.
The Foster's have a standing date night every Friday night, but it's become routine and almost like another obligation. With the news that another couple in their circle of friends is getting divorced, they start questioning their own marriage's lack of spark.
Claire decides to get all dressed up one Friday after work, and when Phil comes home he is taken back by how good she looks and decides to take her to the swankiest new seafood restaurant in Manhattan.
The Fosters don't have a reservation but plead with the maitre d’ to please let them know if there's a cancellation....and that they'll be hanging out in the bar....um, lounge.
Claire knows that Phil's insistence of getting a table on such a busy night is futile, but Phil remains optimistic.
When a hostesses announces a table reservation for the Tripplehorns several times with no response....well, you guessed it, Phil says, "US"!
this is where the fun begins, because unfortunately, in the middle of their meal they’re accosted by a couple of guys who order them out of the place and demand that the “Tripplehorns” return a flash drive stolen from mob kingpin.
The rest of the movie is a very common and loooooong foot chase, boat chase, car chase. The plot is nothing that you can't figure out from the onset of the mistaken identity. It has a familiar theme, similar to Did You Hear About The Morgans?
Grandma J has to give this movie three stars because she's generous when she likes the stars.
**Grandma J loves watching this little hummingbird mama sit on her nest. The coin sitting next to her is a penny!
