THE UGLY TRUTH! (A morning at the Movies)

(I totally looked for a picture of Scarlett sleeping, but gave up before I found one, so this adorable pic from )

Today I woke up bright and early (at 10am, here I'll lol for you) to get to a movie by 10:50... okay, so MAYBE I came out of my bedroom at 10, and laid on the couch for 20 minutes before wandering in to the bathroom, scooping some clothes off of the floor, putting my hair in a messy pony tail, and scurrying out the door.

Why did I have to wear dirty clothes off of the bathroom floor? Because, I didnt want to bother/ risk waking up Sleeping Scarlett in my bed. I chose the 10:50 showing, because odds were good that she would sleep the entire time I was at the movie, and cause Joe zero problems. What is funny, is, that when I left, Joe decided to MOVE Scarlett downstairs to her bed, where "supposedly" she stayed asleep, only she was totally awake and watching Blues Clues when I got home. (Yes she now knows how to turn it on, get it to play from the title menu, and even skip chapters all by herself, she is very very smart)

I know he has had a LONG, GRUELING few weeks at work... *grrrr*, but it also has meant me, and Scooby Doo, alone, together, from dawn until dusk, which made it necessesary for some manditory "Molly Time".

I made it to the movie in perfect time, missing none of the previews for the upcoming movies. ALSO, I have been toting around this "Regal Rewards Card" for the movie theaters, and in my mind had pretty much determined it was useless, however as I purchased my ticket, I went ahead and dug through my wallet to use it, and BOOM, Free small popcorn!

I am sure you are thinking... "small popcorn? who wants a small popcorn?" (ok so that isn't a picture of me at the movies, but I could only wish I looked that cute stuffing my face in the dark, lol!) First, I have to admit that the popcorn bag sizes are WAY different out here in Irvine. I dont know what they are like in every other city in CA so I won't broaden my statement further than Irvine & Tustin. But, Small is actually pretty good sized, and just perfect for one person who should not eat lots and lots of popcorn, however the lovely girl at the counter, offered to upgrade my popcorn to a MEDIUM for only $1. This was an offer I couldn't refuse. Since I only had to pay a DOLLAR for my popcorn, I decided I would splurge for the big drink... by big, I mean ENORMOUS.... and comes with a free refill. I dont know how many ounces it is, but I think it is even more than 44... yes, BIG!

A few movies I forgot to mention my excitement for in my last post, are, "The Time Traveler's Wife" staring Eric Banna and Rachel McAdams. (image from ) Looks excellent. Also, the movie "Funny People" looks totally entertaining and fun, (image from Starring: Adam Sandler, Seth Rogan, and um, that curly headded kid from superbad and other entirely dirty, off-beat comedy films that Joe likes. I know that I could just look up the names of these people, but then it takes too long and I don't finish the posts, so I love that Amiee knows the names of these people and leaves them in the comment line!

So, I sat and enjoyed this lovely film. Yes, it was rated R. No, it was not full of nudity, (actually there was no nudity) no man or woman naked parts. Not much foul language, a few off colored jokes, and by a few, I mean many, but not as revolting as humor found in movies made for MEN, such as Borat (yes, I am ashamed to say Joe dragged me to that film) or Step Brothers. It was a love story, and You know I am a sucker for those. It also had an excellent ending for any true "storybook ending" lover. I, for one DETEST movies with crappy endings. Obviously when a movie is rated R, its because it is not a subject matter suitable for children under the age of 18, so I think the rating SHOULD stick. Honestly, I wish the rating system were more cut and dried in that sense, I have seen a lot worse in several pg13's. Enough said...

This movie looks cute, I think they should edit the movies for each rating, they could just cut out a little so I would go see the pg 13, but I agree that some pg13's should be R's, anyways glad you got to get out.
