Frank and I went to see A Night At The Museum on Friday afternoon. We were in the mood to do something different and had not had a chance for a date afternoon/night during the hectic holidays. I love these movies. They are the funniest things I have ever seen and this one was no different. In this one Larry spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever. Part of the time is spent in the London Museum of Natural History and watching the antics of all the exhibits as they come to life made me chuckle. River Wilson, who plays Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect was the British equivalent to Larry and is so funny with her thick brogue. If you don't have anything to do and want to have a good laugh this is a great movie to see. It is definitely a closer and you know what they say about sequels....the first one is always the best and in this case it is true. Even with that it is still a good laugh for a couple of hours. There were some stale moments....and Frank caught a quick nap during those....but I enjoyed all the craziness. The monkey, Owen Wilson's character, and of course Robin Williams are all favorites of mine when I want a good laugh. I always love seeing the previews of what is coming and there are a few I want to see....and a few more I don't. In The Woods and the Age of Adaline sound like they will be good too. Here is hoping for a New Year full of entertainment. BTW....Obviously I have hit the senior discount time. It is sad when they don't even ask you if you ARE old enough for it....but see your white hair and assume. Sigh!
To Joey, With Love....WINNER!
