Movie Review





Ok, so in the last two days I have seen two movies, one with my kids and one with friends. On Monday, we took the girls to see Space Chimps....don't waste your money. We went because we had some free passes and the girls really wanted to see it. If your kids want to see it, convince them to see something else. About the only good thing from this movie, were the quite disturbing chimp masks the girls receievd at the theatre and really that's all they remember either.

The other movie I saw was Mama Mia with some friends from San Marcos and it was great! Just your typical cheezy musical with great ABBA music. I really wish I could have been dancing in the aisled! I truly believe my life was meant to be lived in a musical like this or Enchanted.....but I don't ever get the orchestra que out of mid air to start singing...maybe one day it will happen.

Also, the song from mother to daughter is very touching...really did bring tears to my eyes.

Yes - those are VERY yucky monkey masks you got. I hope they got burned after you took those pictures!

What masks?? I didn't see any masks! Can't wait to see momma mia, been listening to my ABBA C.D.'s for 2 weeks. Been hearing how wonderful Leanna is, stories all week. Also there are tryouts for Prometheus this week, just fly on over to Portland and try out, you could live at Nathans for the 6 week run. We love you!! It was great to see Vicki.

I am going to see Mama Mia with a group of girls on Wed, maybe we should dance in the aisles! By the way, I KNOW that it is your destiny to be in musicals, work on it!
