We just watched "DIARY OF AN ANGRY BLACK WOMAN"....
I slept through a lot of it...pretty boring. The last scene was a total rip off of "AN OFFICER AND A GENTELMAN"... which is one of my favorite movies.

wouldn't watch it again.

I do not think she followed it very well since she was not familiar with the characters.
When Nancy was that age she preferred live action movies to feature length cartoons (she liked Saturday morning cartoons though). She developed a liking for feature length cartoons later. At Rachel's age, Nancy liked Cinderella (didn't care for Alice in Wonderland), but she LOVED "Indiana Jones--Raiders of the Lost Ark." She cried for 2 or 3 blocks, begging to go see it again!

Our last movie was my favorite Elvis movie, "Follow that Dream." Right now I'm almost finished watching "Dinosaur."

LOL That is what I love about people. We each have our own tastes, which is great!

We are currently watching the BBC version of Charles Dicken's "Bleak House" (it is three discs). It is so good! For people who like Jane Austin-style movies it's very appealing, and for people who like mysteries it's very appealing. I think even my uncultured brothers would like this one! Just be prepared for a marathon, or to watch it over a few days time because I think it's something like 12 episodes.

We watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall last night. It was better than I expected it to be.

Believe it or not, I just saw "Overboard" for the first time! (I was away from home a lot in those days)

I enjoyed it-i thought it was very funny!! I also didn't realize how pretty Goldie Hawn was back in the day! Now I see where Kate Hudson got her looks!
