Okay - how many of you out there have been to see Hairspray?  I just went tonight with some girlfriends and I haven't laughed so much in a long time!  It was a real pick me up.  I'm still laughing about it now hours after I've seen it.
 
So...if you haven't seen it yet - what are you waiting for??  tongue

Haven't seen that one yet..although it's not on my list of have to see.
Maybe your enthusiasm about it might change my mind.

Ratatoullie..saw it with my friend and her two kids. Quite enjoyable and done very well.

The Bourne Ultimatum...not worth the high ratings. Matt Damon was in prime form. Not enough story to go with the awesome action, which was a bit of a let down considering the other two left me wanting more. Loved the theme song.

My daughter wants to see Hairspray and I might wait until it comes out on DVD to get it. Movies are so darn expensive nowadays! The last movie we went to go see was Wild Hogs (which we absolutely loved!) and 2 days ago my son turned 16 so I dropped him and a couple friends off to see Transformers. Me and the hubby wanted to see it to but we were "forbidden" to watch the movie with my TEENAGE son! hmph! LOL

The last movie I saw was I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. I really liked it!
I'm more of a watch them at home kind of person. I just bought "The Ex" with Zach Braff, Amanda Peet, and Jason Bateman. It was really good. I like Jason Bateman, he's amazing in the show Arrested Development.

Other than that, I haven't seen too many good movies lately *shrug* I just bought David Lynch's new movie Inland Empire yesterday, so I can't WAIT to get home and watch that.

Hey Jeremy - good luck. How do you think Affleck and Damon got started............Good Will Hunting. Got a video of that right here in our case signed by Ben from a charity auction in Cambridge. We worked and retired from the public school system there. We were friends with Ben's Mom having worked on a few committees with her. Really nice gal.

We do not know Matt and Ben personally but it is kind of cool to see two of our local boys from our high school make it like they did. Of course always in the drama dept productions. My husband was in the high school several times every day so he would see these kids along with Patrick Ewing and Jamiel Robinson in the corridors. Of course we see just about everything they are in. Looks like their personal lives are now more "normal" like most people having settled down.

Tommy Glavin was from our home town - don't know him or the family either but still cool to have him from there. He is and has been great to the town, school etc.

This would be a good thread to start..................I'm sure many of you out there have some kind of connection to some famous people even if you don't know them on a real personal level.

So Jeremy................keep working at it and best of luck on to bigger and better things!!!!

Just saw Fractured last night...very predictable and slow. Although Ryan Gosling would have shone if it was a bit faster paced. Methinks a few of the good parts were left on the cutting floor.

Yes Heather - very predictable - but how cold and calculating that Anthony Hopkins is huh? He gives me the willies............nice to see him on Jay Leno and other shows so you see the real him and allows us to separate the two personalities.

I never saw Silence of the Lambs or the sequel...just thought the content would be too much for me. Give me a good love story or comedy. A good action movie is good from time to time - I really don't like all the graphic and gory stuff basically. Enough of it on TV without having to go to the movies and pay for it.

Another UC Wife...actually Silence of the Lambs was done very well..and it's one of my faves. I thought Sir Anthony was awesome and definitely scary. The other two weren't that great. Should have left well enough alone.
He's a very versitile and humble actor. You should rent The World's Fastest Indian...you'll appreciate him in that.
