We went to see Enchanted this weekend. This was our 2nd successful movie attempt! We've had others, but we had a really bad one this summer and somebody is still upset about it. I won't name names, but she's 3 and is very short. The trick to keeping her in her seat for the whole movie is getting a kid's popcorn combo and a large bag of popcorn. Whenever her little popcorn box gets low, just dump some more in!
Anyway, the movie was really cute and we both enjoyed ourselves. There were two little old ladies sitting behind us, and I have a sneaking suspicion that one of them had never been to a movie before. Every time something 'magical' would happen, she would lean over to the other old gal and say 'well...THAT was implausible!" And even after the movie was over, the one woman asked the other if she had enjoyed the movie and she said "Oh yes! Parts of it were pretty implausible, but I enjoyed it all the same."
I really wanted to turn around and ask her what was so implausible? The fact that people came to NYC through a sewer drain who had lived in a CARTOON WORLD or that you can't just open up your window, sing a little song and birds and woodland critters will come running to clean up for you? Maybe it was the talking chipmunk? And even now, a whole day later, the more I think about it, the more that woman bugs me. I'll get over it, but I do wish I had said something to her.
On another note, I hope you all have a joyous and happy new year. I know mine will be much happier AFTER January 3rd. I swear I get 5-10 calls a day from candidates. But after the 3rd, we can all go back to being just one of those farm states in the middle for another 4 years.
