I can't tell you the last time I saw a movie in the theatre.
Saturday Rick had to do 2 estimates only. He said, why don't you come along and skip all the cleaning and come with me. Don't have to tell me twice to live my life instead of clean.
We went from Alexandria to Ashburn. We found ourselves in this little town in the sticks with a movie theatre. We decided to see what was playing and see if we could see a show and still have time to pick Izzy up at doggie day care by 5pm. We thought we'd see whatever we could fit into our day.
We walked in and found the kiosk to buy our tickets. We were laughing because we needed our bifocals to read this. I think the kid are the end of the aisle thought these 2 old people laughing their asses off were certifiably nuts. I swear braille will be our next step life.
There was a button for seniors. We looked at one another and said at the same time, "gee could we be seniors?" We doubted it so we bought our matinee tickets for adults. The next movie starting was Silver Lining Playbook. We walked over to the child taking tickets and asked him what is considered a senior. He looked at us with his head tilted like the RCA dog and just stared at us for a moment. That too made Rick and I chuckle. Then he said, "well you'd be old."
We lost a gut on that comment. I swear to you he looked at us as though we were from another planet. Everything was making us laugh.
Okay then, it's official we're seniors. We can't see the small print on the kiosks and we're old.
The young man didn't know what to make of us. He tore our tickets and we moved along.
Rick got his popcorn the size of Texas and a big bottle of water for me that I knew I would end up sharing. As we were walking down the aisle towards our theatre we saw a man who looked like a manager or boss. For shits and giggles I asked him at what age are we are considered a senior? He told us it was 60 and he moved along quickly. Go figure we're too young for something. yipee.
We both really enjoyed this movie!
Bradley Cooper is gorgeous isn't he? I may be old enough to be his mother. (okay i have no idea how old he is but I'm sure he is Tender Vittles)
He was excellent in this movie and my goodness he is nice to look at.
I know all the talk is about Jennifer Lawrence. But he deserves a lot of kudo's as well.
The parents of this movie made me giggle. I know these people.
When the mom is saying, "I made homemades" Haven't heard that in a long time living amongst the young and the southerners. That was my families word for pasta too. The braciole, my absolute favorite. The bicotti dunking in the coffee. I knew this family. But Robert DeNiro so reminds me of one of my Uncles it kills me. And boy oh boy was Mr. DeNiro good in this movie. When he cries while sitting on his son's bed it got to both of us, big time.
I am glad that this was the movie that was available at the time we needed to see a movie.
It was worth the price of admission for a change. It's been a long time since we haven't been disappointed by the hype or the movie.
The best part of all? We had the best damn seats in the house.
The chairs rocked, reclined a bit. They also had a railing in front of us so we had a foot rest.
Have you seen it yet? Thumbs up from me.
