  • Happy Birthday : ) I saw Bed Time Stories and thought it was really cute. The previews for Bride Wars and Yes Man looked really funny. I hear Marley & Me has a sad ending. What ever you choose have a great Birthday Dinner and Movie : )

  • My husband and I saw "The Curious case of Benjamin Button." Both my husband and I loved it. It was extremely charming and their were some really candid scene in the movie. It does make you think about mortality a lot though. You might want to see something lighter for an anniversary, lol. I red Marley and Me when I was six months pregnant and my husband was deployed and that book made me damn near go into convulsions from crying so hard, lol. I hope the movie wasn't as heart wrenching. I think Bride Wars looks hilarious. Even my husband wants to see it.

  • My sister and I saw Yes Man this weekend and it is funny! I think it is one of Jim Carrey's best yet.

  • I guess it depends on what kind of mood you want to set for when you leave the theater! lol
    The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons is an excellent movie. Thoughtful, a bit sad, but very well told and it has some parts that will make you belly laugh.

    Marley & Me is a bit sad, particularly at the end. I guess Hollywood is finished with the whole "happy ending" phase, eh? lol Still, it's a good story.

    Bride Wars looks like good, lighthearted fun. I haven't seen it, but I'm thinking of taking my daughter this weekend.

    Yes Man also looks like a good, lighthearted choice...no tearing emotions or anything of that sort!

    Bedtime Stories is cute, but maybe not "adult" enough when you're going on a date?
