A Couple of Brief Movie Reviews

Last weekend, Sheryl and I were able to get out and see Get Smart, starring Steve Carrell, Anne Hathaway, and Dwayne Johnson (no longer The Rock, I suppose). We enjoyed it quite a bit and had fun. It was nice that it took the storyline somewhat seriously but still had fun with some of the conventions of the Get Smart TV show. I liked that they didn't try to shoehorn cameos by the original actors into it and let it stand on its own. Carrell and Hathaway had great chemistry with each other. Fun movie. Good for a date night. 3.5 out of 5.

This weekend, Sheryl went shopping with her mom and I got to spend some time with the kids. In the morning, we went to see Kung Fu Panda. I was a little leery of it, because I know that some kids' movies can lean toward some light potty humor, which honestly, I don't need Kinsey running around the house making fart jokes. That's my job. (rimshot) At any rate, thankfully, Kung Fu Panda didn't really do that. We all enjoyed it, including Connor who stayed mainly involved in it, except when he dropped his Sprite (sorry to the guy in front of us). If you've seen just about any martial arts and/or underdog type movie, you can see the plotlines coming like a semi down a dirt road. Good kids movie. 3 out of 5

Girls make fart jokes too? Wait until I tell my godsons' mom. She thought it was just boy (and she thought they'd never outgrow that stage. I didn't have the heart to tell her it's permanent in them.)
