Dawgluver, was it anything like the old soap opera? I never missed an episode when I was a teen.

Bunny, it really doesn't follow the original series, but it was enjoyable in a nice creepy way. I used to run home to watch the series too!

I'd watch it too! We're showing our ages, right? Except I was watching it because the kids I babysat liked to watch it. Still fun.

Get our movies from the library because 1) we're basically cheap and 2) the theaters won't stop the movie if I want to take a potty break or get more to drink or eat. They're like that, ya know.

Saw "Trouble with the Curve" because I'm a baseball nut. Was impressed with JT's acting chops! Always thought of Timberlake as a teenybop singer. Wish the disc had more outtakes though.

Too crude! One doesn't have to be grotesque to be funny.

Groan!

Stop

Eject

What a stinker!
We enjoyed Ted, we thought it was right funny. Neither one of us offends easily.

It was funny in some parts.

I'm no prude. I just thought what was a neat premise was ruined by a gratuitous use of profanity and all manner of other crudity.

Well, I imagine that some folks might not enjoy some of the movies that I do.

To each their own.

Yes, it certainly is each to their own

I feel a lot of movies dont need to have half the crud they have in them, a good storyline is far better

I agree.

I really enjoy vintage and classic movies.

Back then there was a sexual element in the movies but it was only suggestive.

There's nothing wrong with leaving a little to the imagination.
