Love Guru (i.e., some reviews of movies)

We have a membership at Hollywood that lets us rent up to 3 movies at a time with no late fees. Ever. It's saved us a bundle because we kept racking up late fees, and we rented movies almost every weekend anyway. It's not as cheap as Netflix, but I get to pick them in the store and no waiting, and when I had Netflix, I'd rent other movies anyway. So it works for us. So why not watch the stupid movies at home (essentially for free), and save the big bucks for going out? We watch way too many movies. Maybe I can spare you some pain.

Hubby wanted to see Love Guru in the theater.

I vetoed, but picked it up for him today.

The funniest line wasn't even *in* the movie. It was as the credits start rolling. They're shooting a scene with the coach, played by a dwarf, and Mike Myers. "Can we move in the shot? All I can see are [butts]." Coach says, "Now you know what it's like." Cracked me up. And the entire crew.

Anyway. Unless you're a fan of the stupid and Mike Myers, I don't recommend it. "D"


Jumper: Hayden Christensen doesn't totally suck in this movie, unlike the Star Wars movies. The plot left too many holes and unexplained bits, but if you're just looking at the surface and taking it for a brain-numbing movie, it's okay. "C"


The Forbidden Kingdom: Even though it's PG-13, we let Kiddo watch this with us Monday night. We all rather enjoyed it: Jackie Chan and Jet Li!!! Come on, martial arts movies don't get better than that. Hubby wants to buy it, which I will probably get for him for Christmas or his birthday.


I also picked up Made of Honor, thinking "chick flick, cool, I'll watch it tonight." I'll have to let you know on that one though because hubby got all offended I wanted to watch it without him. He likes Patrick Dempsey. Who knew? Actually, I did because of Enchanted, but he'd said he didn't want to see Made of Honor until he saw the cover and realized who the lead was. lol.

So ... more reviews to come as I have time ...

two of the roomies are downstairs watching made of honor right now... I thought I'd be interested, but I wasn't... maybe it's teh 2 movies I already watched today.

I watched Made of Honor today online. It was completely predictable, but I didn't mind. I could watch Patrick Dempsey knit a sweater and be happy. In fact, the quality was so bad that I will probably Netflix it as soon as I send back my Gray's Anatomy DVDs that David keeps hinting I should watch and send back already - even though the story wasn't all that. I was going to stop watching it and wait, but I mostly just listened to it while I did other stuff online and imagined him. :)

We got Forbidden Kingdom disc 1 (and more Grey's) in the mail today. And Speed Racer, whoopdedoo.

stewbert said...

We're gonna go get speed racer later i think. lol

oh just ehu. said...

Yeah, Jumper wasn't so bad...I just kept thinking the whole time, "Dang, I wish I had that ability! I'd love to be wealthy and just travel the world over!"

Samuel L. Jackson is freaky with that hair!!!
