We don't watch much TV and don't subscribe to any of the movie channels on Dish, so Netflix is our movie friend. We just finished watching all the 9 seasons of Seinfeld and had a ball, so we had Witless Protection sent as a movie choice.

It stars Larry the Cable Guy and it's funny from beginning to end. Some of the one-liners and gags are hilarious. We've ordered Delta Farce next.

A BBC series rather than a movie -- "Pie in the Sky" - a semi-retired detective opens his own restaurant of that name with a menu featuring traditional but gourmet meat pies (Is that an oxymoron? Maybe I should check with Bolas). Pleasant and amusing when needing a break from Libya, et al.

The Stone Angel. It was really good.

"What If..." We really enjoyed it. Kevin Sorbo and John Ratzenberger.

We watched Tangled earlier tonight. VERY good movie, &, I have a new respect(& uses) for my cast iron frying-pan! *winks* Maximus/Max (the horse) made me laugh out loud several times! :) Get off your duffs', & rent this movie!! Nothing but grins to gain from watching this flick!

PS - watched the Black Swan a few nights ago....I found it to be terrible! - Very DARK, movie. Left me w/a yucky taste in my mouth. Ballerinas must lead a bad, stringent lifestyle I now conclude. Just not a "happy" movie I would say. Wish that I could "UNwatch" it. :(

We watched Tangled on Xmas Day at home with the grandkids and really enjoyed it.
As for Black Swan, I thought it was just ok.
A great film with a ballet theme is Mao's Last Dancer.

I watched half of Macgruber. I hate the SNL skit, but some people I know said the movie was surprisingly decent. They were VERY wrong.

I watched it for about 10 minutes and was trying to decide what poison I wanted to ingest...decided it was easier to just change channels than make a decision.
