Not that it means anything to me that it's Wednesday. I just felt like saying Wahoo! I'm a gomer like that.
I had the opportunity to watch a couple of movies this week. I rented both from the Blockbuster box at the local grocery store for $1. One was great, while the other was almost a waste of my $1.
We were in the mood for a comedy and decided between The Bounty Hunter and Date Night. The box was out of Date Night so first we rented The Bounty Hunter starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.
From IMDb: Milo Boyd, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly. He thinks all that's ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other - until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honor and obey was tough - staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher.
My husband asked if I thought Gerard Butler was a good looking guy. I said "ehh....not really". Then came the scene where he walks out of the bathroom with just a towel wrapped around his waste. I said, "He just got better looking".
Sadly, that's about the only good thing I can say about The Bounty Hunter. It wasn't awful, but I wasn't all that entertained.
The next night, Date Night, starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell was in. I had my fingers crossed.
From IMDb: Phil and Claire Foster are a couple who have been married for several years. Their days consists of them taking care of their children and going to work and coming home and going to bed. But they find time to have a date night wherein they go out and spend some time together. When another couple they know announce that they're separating because they're in a rut, Phil feels that he and Claire could be too. So when date night comes Phil decides to do something different. So they go into the city and try to get into a new popular restaurant. But when it's full and still wanting to do this, Phil decides to take the reservation of a couple who doesn't show up. While they're having dinner two men approach them and instructs them to stand up and go with them. They think the men are with the restaurant and want to talk to them about taking someone else's reservation. But it appears the couple whose reservation they took crossed someone and the two men work for this person. The men are after something, but whatever it is they don't have it.
In a case of mistaken identity, the couple end up running for their lives, trying to find what it is these two tough guys want.
We really enjoyed this movie. There were quite a few lines that had us laughing out loud. I thought Tina Fey and Steve Carell were great together and I can almost see a sequel.
Hope your Wednesday is wonderful, and if you have any recs, please share!
