Last night we watched Wag the Dog with Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman.

Very good film and one that makes you consider how our news is "produced." Really made us think and I can only imagine what today's spinmasters do to design our news reports.

Last night we watched Tinker Tailor Solider Spy. Very well done.

We are currently watching Iron Lady.

Glenn and I are interested in seeing that. Let us know what you think of it, Frank.

I watched "The Bodyguard" on AMC last night. I had never seen it before.

We saw "We Bought a Zoo" last night. We enjoyed it.

Romantic Comedy: Reese Witherspoon in Alabama

I forget the exact title however, it is a lovely romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and 2 gents, her Ex and the son of a NYC Politian, portrayed by Candice Bergman ... The Bloodhound, Jerry was a hoot ! Cool dog. Reese portrayed a young woman originally from Alabama, and she went to NYC to become a top model ... Left the hubby and Jerry and friends and family ... Of course, she decided to leave the Politian´s son portrayed by Patrick Dempsey I believe, and return with her Ex because she truly loved him ...

Cute film to see ...

Nice post for film views.
Margi.

We watched it last night, too. Glenn had seen it but I hadn't. I enjoyed it and thought that that was when Whitney Houston must've been the most straight she'd been. Amazing how young Kevin Costner was. Well...everyone else, too.

We enjoyed both movies, very much.

Yes, we were all so young Katie. Hard to believe it was 20 years ago. Seeing the movie made Costner's eulogy of Whitney all the more touching for me. I saw in an interview that he recently tried to watch the movie again and said he had to turn it off after only 10 minutes.
I thought it was a very good movie. Both the endings were so sad.
