I usually have a fairly tight fist when it comes to parting with my money to purchase a movie ticket. We have a 'big screen needed' yardstick and we use it to determine whether or not we should lay down the cash to pay for a seat at the local Malco. Obviously such movies as Harry Potter qualify for a family trip to the theater, but many times we wait for the dvd to be released on other films.
Now that we are in the dog days of summer, a bit earlier than normal I might note, I caved yesterday and took the girls to see the latest Sandra Bullock, romantic comedy, "The Proposal." It was an adorable movie with good acting, a cute albeit predictable storyline, and it included Betty White! One scene was so funny between Bullock and White that I actually had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.
Now, this pic isn't going to win any Academy Awards, even with the recent change that will allow ten films instead of five to be nominated for best picture of the year. But, it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours with my girls.
