I took the kids to see this movie today. It was a cute movie. I think I enjoyed it more than my kids....lol.

It's with Amanda Bynes and Kelly Preston. It's about a girl who goes looking for her father and he is a prominant man and she doesn't fit the mold. It's a sweet movie and of course it made me cry, but I cry over anything.

My 18 yr old and I saw it today. It was cute.......typical teen movie that follows the same old predictable formula. Amanda Bynes is a very cute and charming young lady.

I went for three reasons:

(1) Colin Firth

(2) Colin Firth

and

(3) Colin Firth

that man just rings my bell (even my 18 yr old whispers "he's sooooooo fine")

I wish they'd give him a role more worthy of his talents. I think I'm gonna have to dig out my copy of Pride & Prejudice. lol

So, you think my 9yo will like it? She loves Amanda Bynes. We might go see it this weekend.

AHHHHHH...Colin Firth. Have you seen "Bridget Jones's Diary" yet? He will also be in "Hope Springs" starring Minnie Driver coming out this summer.

Yep......own B.J. Diary. My 18 yr old watches it all the time.......she can quote every freaking line.

But my favorite role of his is as Mr. Darcy in the 6-hr A&E version of Pride & Prejudice (which BJD was loosely based upon). He was born to play that part.....

Have you ever visited the Colin Firth Fantasy Women website? It's basically just an open forum discussion about him and his movies. Great pictures, also. Yes, after seeing BJD, I then heard about P&P and fell in love with him there, also. I've seen other movies of his since, but none really struck the chord as did BJD and P&P. This is probably my 3rd favorite, although I'm eagerly awaiting Hope Springs. I love him in romantic movies.
