My favorite local movie theater has a food court inside and they have little trays that fit in your cup holder so you can eat an entire meal while watching the latest flick! Oh, the joy of combining my two favorite activities...eating and movies!
For this movie I chose the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich with swiss cheese and extra mushrooms. It was divine! I think I shall see a movie every single week so that I may partake of this fabulous sandwich. I shall call it research for my blog! And the fries! Oh my...the fries!
My good friend Monica went with me to the movie. We haven't seen each other in two months so I felt like we had lots of catching up to do so maybe going to a movie wasn't the best way to use our time but we both desperately needed a couple hours away from our children and wanted to see this movie!
First of all. Have you seen the commercials for the new Hannah Montana movie? I got all choked up and was fighting back tears and trying to hide that fact from Monica. I don't like Hannah. Why on earth did the preview effect me so much? Am I pre-menopausal? Is it PMS already? With God as my witness....I will not become a slave to Smily Miley!
The movie. Confessions of a Shopaholic. LOVED IT!
I carefully chose my outfit for the movie and for the weather and decided to wear my GREEN cashmere scarf. Imagine my surprise when a GREEN scarf makes an important appearance in the movie. I felt so fashionable and special sitting there in my seat holding an entire Belly Buster of Coke in my bladder.
I loved the costumes. Even though some of them reminded me a little teeny bit of something Ugly Betty would wear. And I thought Isla Fisher did a great job as Rebecca Bloomwood.
Becky's boss. *Swoon* I totally fall in love with accents and his is so yummy. I wanted to climb into the screen and let him give me a little whisker burn. His real name is Hugh Dancy....doesn't that just sound....so....british?? Holy Crap! I just found out he is engaged to Claire Danes!
I am disturbed about something. Joan Cusack....I tend to think of her as being MY AGE. And I don't like the fact that someone that I consider to be MY AGE...is playing the mother of a 20 something in a movie. It made me feel a little bit OLD!
Monica and I made a pledge at the beginning of the movie that we would NEVER purchase ugly shoes for our daughters. NEVER! I loved the scenes when the mannequins would talk to her and I loved the debt collector guy...but I always like the geeky guys!
My favorite scenes of all....when she is dancing in Florida, when she fights for a pair of super ugly boots and when she is thawing her credit card out of an ice block.
And of course...I love a happy ending!
