Movies, Movies, Movies

Let me start off by saying that I am not a huge fan of movies. Hub's says that I am to ADD for them. I just can never seem to sit still long enough to understand what is going on. Several movies have recently came out (on DVD of course; I mean who wants to pay $12 for a movie ticket?) that I wanted to see so I rented them and have watched 2 movies in the past 2 days! That's a record for me I think.
Last night Hubs and I watched Leap Year. I went to the Redbox (greatest invention ever!!!) and tried to rent When In Rome but of course it wasn't in. While browsing I remembered seeing the previews for Leap Year so I decided to get it. Well, it turned out to be one of the cutest movies I have ever seen. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone. Some of the Irish accents were a little hard to understand but it has a really cute story. Overall rating A.
Today after my hair appt. I went to mom and dads and my sister in law was there. We were both talking about how we wanted to see When In Rome so we called my dad and he Redboxed (can this be a new verb?) it for us on his way home. I was really disappointed with it. While the movie was okay (it did have cutie Josh Duhamel in it) it just seemed overly cheesy most of the time. I would never watch it again. Overall grade C+.
So what do I have planned for tomorrow (my second official day of summer vacation)? I rented this movie....
and plan on watching it in the morning. It has really been too hot here to do anything outside during the day and since I got a little too toasted at the pool this weekend I think I will plan on spending the day in the AC.
