We hardly ever watch movies, but this weekend we ended up watching not one, not two, not three—but FOUR movies!
- Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian
- The Hangover
- 500 Days of Summer
Night at the Museum 2 was cute—we enjoyed the first one, and this was more of the same. Good free Redbox rental, for sure.
I knew I wanted to see UP (SQUIRREL!), and everyone has loved it, but I really didn’t have any idea what it was about. Turns out they were right when they said it was a sad, but good, movie. We enjoyed it, and I was teary more than once. It was certainly worth the $1 Redbox rental.
We wanted to see The Hangover because it seems everyone has been ABSOLUTELY RAVING about it, watching it multiple times. Well, about a half hour in, we were still waiting for it to get good. It had some funny bits and some good lines, but it’s certainly nothing I need to ever watch again. Apparently it’s just not our sense of humor—or we need to be drunk to fully enjoy it. I’m just really glad we didn’t actually pay to see it (it was a free rental from Redbox).
I also didn’t have any idea what 500 Days of Summer was about. At all. I just knew a bunch of friends had enjoyed it. Well, FYI, it has nothing to do with a long summer, but rather a girl named Summer. It was cute, but it felt like it dragged on a little too long. I probably could have turned it off halfway through and not cared much if I ever finished it. We should have saved it for a $1 Redbox rental instead of a $3 Netflix rental.
