A large popcorn, Diet Coke, & Butterfingers, please

Changeling, Starring: Angelina Jolie

Rating: Excellent

Favorite things: Angelina's hair, clothes, hats, and her home.

Surprising element: John Malkovich's teeth, hair, and entertaining wardrobe.
I was worried this movie would be scary but it wasn't (unless you are talking about the jerk policemen that were working in Los Angeles during the 1920s). There are some disturbing scenes but nothing so graphic that I had to close my eyes. For those of you who don't know the story, it is the true story of Christine Collins and due to her horrible experiences with the police department; laws were changed in the police department. She was a very courageous woman.

Here's a link to watch the trailer


Role Models, Starring: Paul Rudd, Seann William Scott, and Jane Lynch

Rating: Fabulously Raunchy

Favorite things: The Kiss make-up & costumes, new dirty words/phrases, Whispering Eye, and everything about Sweeny (which was mostly disgusting, yet funny).

Surprising/disappointing element: I was happy to see Seann William Scott in the nude, until the camera panned to his bum. Very disappointed, very flat, not at all what I imagined.

This movie was great for mindless entertainment. I didn’t have to explain anything to my dear husband (who I ALWAYS have to explain thinking movies to). The only bummer (no pun intended) was the awkward boobie/sex scenes while sitting next to our neighbor friends. Needless to say, we all looked straight ahead during those parts. And to answer your next question, no, the boobies were not nice to look at (flapjacks & fried eggs).

Check out the trailer:

I want to see "Changeling" because the cute guy from "Burn Notice" is on it. I know he is the bad policeman, but I still like him!

He talks funny in the movie. I was wondering if he really talks like that or if he really thinks that is an accent from the 1920s. Let me know when you want to see the movie and I will go with you.
