Movie Review


Last night I went out with a couple of my BFF's. We just wanted to get out, without kids, and go do something that would make us laugh and also that required no thinking, or exerting any energy. So someone suggested we see House Bunny. The previews did look funny. Okay, I'm in! It really didn't matter to me if it was good or bad. I love bad movies. Some of my favs: To Justin from Kelly (a must see) and Grease 2. I am also a fan of horrible shows, i.e. "Saved by the Bell". I don't know what it is that draws me to these sorts of things. As I watch them I am always embarrassed for whoever is participating in the show or movie. Anyway, I have to say this movie was pretty bad, but not quite up to the so bad it was good standard that I hold so high. There was a point in the movie where I found myself laughing really hard, not at the movie, but at the movie. Sadly, it was not enough to recommend it for my good, but bad, picks. It sort of stooped to dirtiness to get a laugh sometimes. That's right, my friend picked out a sort of dirty movie. I guess it's one of the many reasons we've been friends for so long. So I will suggest to you all, if you are interested at all in seeing this movie, wait until it comes on TBS and they replay it for six weekends in a row, probably followed by a Harold and Kumar movie.
On another note, there has been a few comments about our blogger reunion. (Jenny and I were talking about it anyway.) We are kind of serious about it. We were thinking about a weekend in October, mid to end. Jenny suggested Forks, in a joking way, but then admitted she was serious. I wasn't sure about it, until I saw this. It is the official Forks, Washington website. Way too awesome! When you pull it up, you need to make sure you pull up the map of the town. There are arrows pointing to points of interest. There is one pointing to the Forks police station, and it says "Bella's father works here." I thought the book was fictional, but apparently Charlie does exist, and not only that, but he is still working at the police station! There was also an arrow pointing to Forks community hospital, and it says "Bella came here and was treated by Edward's father". So I am thinking, Carlisle is still there working too! Seriously, how could anyone pass up this opportunity! I am thinking, one of us could "accidentally" get some sort of cut and need stitches and we could all take you to the community hospital and have Carlisle give you stitches. So, who's in?

I will volunteer to get stitches. What is a few more hundred dollars added to the medical bills.

Amy Thurston said...

Sara's in! That's three of us so far. (We'll chip in for the bill.)

Jeni said...

I thought we agreed we were going to tell everyone it was the funniest movie EVER!! Traitor :)

Landeelu said...

I would totally volunteer to cut myself with a knife (... The Host is getting all mixed in here) but I'm worried that I'd be the ONE who CARLISLE couldn't resist. Then Esme & I would have to fight...and, let's just say it would get ugly.

Does Southwest fly to Forks?

Landeelu said...

Oh, and I'm kinda bugged you lumped Saved By the Bell in there with bad shows. Wha??? That is the best show ever produced! Zach was so my boyfriend! (in my journal).

Well, if there is going to be any reunion in Forks than I am totally in!

Markie23 said...

I'm already in stitches
har har.

Amanda said...

I noticed that they are having a celebration for Bella's birthday on the 14th. Could we pull it together to go that soon?

Jami said...

I have never found anyone else that recognizes the pure talent involved in From Justin to Kelly. That is the whole reason i originally signed up for Netflix, they had it...blockbuster didn't.

I'm confused. Is everyone hedging the blogger reunion question? How should I word my answer?

And remember when we convinced mom to see From Justin to Kelly with us by telling her it was a musical? The best part of the movie was watching her face.

Memzy said...

I'm in for the blogger reunion fer rizzles. That's fer super duh.

Thanks for the review on that movie. Now Shed and I will have to pick something else out to see on date night tonight. ::snicker::

Amy Thurston said...

Just so's you know, I take "fer rizzles" to mean "for sure, I'll be joining in". So, let's get the tally: Amy, Jenny, Sara, Sam, Amanda, Landee, and Memzy. Where the heck is Cristin?!?!?!? And anyone else better hurry and decide so we can work out details......fer rizzles!

Landee said...

I'll be in UT from October 11-17th. Just thought I'd throw that out there for no reason in particular.

Amy Thurston said...

So the weekend of the 24th it is.

Cristin said...

OH MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

I wanna go to Forks!!!! I'd even be willing to get stitched up. Are you guys serious? cause I can't go anywhere for a while.

abutler said...

I'm feeling sooooo left out "fer rizzles."


What part of the title "The House Bunny" made you think it was going to be a good pick? Really?

Amy Thurston said...

Do you need me to talk to Trent, Anna? I am sure it would make him WANT you to come.
