If you're certain your husband wouldn't like The Help, then go see it with someone who you think would. However, I didn't think my husband would have cared for it, but he enjoyed it thoroughly and really reacted to many scenes. On the way out, he said it was a great film.

I really, really didn't expect him to like Jule and Julia, but he did and he's commented several times since seeing it that he really enjoyed it. So, go figure.

Well, I am glad I got to see it.
It was scary in some parts, which I like but I was disappointed with the ending.

just finished watching hot rocks on tv, a 1972 redford film. they must be showing his films because he had his 75th b-day the other day. this diamond caper flick reminded me of another classic film, an all-time favorite of mine, the thomas crown affair, with steve mcqueen and faye dunaway. it's worth a look just for the chess game scene itself--one steamy board game, as i recall....

Memories. One of my college drama class professors claims she was in the opening elevator scene, screaming. Will have to watch it again.

well, there you have it then. it was the acting triumvirate of your professor, flanked by mcqueen and dunaway, that spawned this award-winning classic movie, the thomas crown affair. and dawg, you were the catalyst, having chosen that specific drama class!!

I watched Unstoppable with Denzel Washington on HBO last night. Lots of action. Tonight I plan on watching The American with George Clooney.
