Have you seen anything recently you want to endorse? Or want to tell us to stay away from?

C'mon! Somebody's watching something, aren't they??

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw "Gigli" ("it sounds like 'really'") on Saturday with my dd. I liked it. It was funny and kind of sweet. But it had several sexually themed scenes and a bit of gory violence, earning the R rating, so I'd leave the kids under 17 at home.

And I (finally) went to see "Finding Nemo" yesterday. It was very cute and funny (Dory trying to speak whale just cracked me up), and I really did like it. But, a warning, some little bitty kids in the theater were really scared by the shark and another "toothy" fish (the piercing scream from one and sobbing from another gave them away), so if your little one is sensitive to things with lots of teeth filling a whole screen or chasing cute little things around, you may want to wait till it's out in video, when the scary teeth may not look quite as large.

Also, I watched some of a movie on tv, "Instinct". It was just okay. Maybe I expected more of Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding, Jr. but I didn't even finish watching it.

Yes, I did. Just one of the *8* movies I saw over the past week. I don't even know if I remember them all! Can you tell I was bored a lot?

And NOW the new Family Video store opens up, with 1/2 price videos for 30 days! Sure! Now that I don't need it as much and feel like I've seen everything out there!

Okay here are my reviews from last week.

American Wedding...LOVED IT!!! It was so much funnier than I thought it would be because it is a 3rd movie and usually by the 3rd part its stupid. I would say this was better than American Pie 2. We loved it.

Freaky Friday....It was okay, not horrible, very cute for the kids, but I felt like they didn't finish it. There were parts to it that I wish they made mention of at the end.

I think that was all that I saw, I am drawing a blank...lol.

Here goes....

SWAT Loved it! Nothing like checking out Collin Farrell and LL Cool J for two hours. Movie was not bad either.

Freaky Friday - It was a lot better then I thought it would be. I would put this as almost as good as the original and I NEVER say that!
