The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

On Friday night, Jonny and I left Lily with the in-laws and went on a LOOOOOOOOONG needed date. We went to Jordan Commons and had fish & chips for dinner and talked for a while until the movie started. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button wasn't our first choice - we actually wanted to see Bedtime Stories, but it was sold out. I was a little bummed out, because I didn't really want to see the movie, but figured that maybe I'd like it more since I didn't expect much. Turns out I didn't like it. I loved it! It was done so well...with the Forrest Gump kind of feel and a LOT of comedy in it - which made it less of a drama to me. I'd only had one really emotional pregnant moment so far this pregnancy, but I definitely had another moment during the movie. It really made me cry. Not just "oh, there's a tear or two" cry, but a serious "I can't stop myself from crying" cry. I'm sure the girl next to me thought I was crazy. Anyway, I highly recommend it! It's definitely one of the best I've seen in a while (not to mention that I haven't seen a movie in the theaters since Iron Man...).

  1. You are so funny! I went with a bunch of friends and we thought it was whatever. I especially didn't like all the unmarried sex that was in it. I thought the story could have been a little different but that's just me. Glad you had fun though!
