See a Movie (or Two)

Seeing a movie on Christmas Day is a big tradition in our family.  But Tony and I kicked it off early by sneaking away on Friday night for a date night.  We were originally going to see Playing for Keeps (I had bought a groupon for it), but after Nicole gave it such a glowing review (HERE) we changed our minds.  We already had the tickets because of the groupon, so we could either 1) theatre hop and try to sneak into a different movie or 2) try to exchange the tickets for something else.  Luckily number 2 worked and we were able to trade them in. 

We ended up seeing Silver Linings Playbook.  It was such a good movie.  It had it's funny parts and it's touching parts.  I'm really glad we saw it and spent some time alone during such a hectic part of the year.

On Christmas Day we braved the icy roads and went to see Parental Guidance.  HILARIOUS!  I wasn't sure how Bette Midler and Billy Crystal would do in a PG rated movie, but they did a really great job.  The movie was very funny and the three kids really did steal the show.

I'm hoping to get a couple more movies in during the next couple of days...there are just so many out right now that I am dying to go to see.

I really want to see the Silver Linings Playbook, it looks good!

We saw both, too. Both were excellent. Silver Linings Playbook mostly just made me sad - but it had it's funny parts, too.
