Love and Other Drugs

Ok, since I didn't want my first blog in forever to be about shopping...

My in-laws are staying with for a few days, here us after my hubby's Grandmother passed away last week.  They can't seem to wait to get back to Florida, even though it's freezing there too. My Mother-in-Law misses FL because she spends her time seeing every single movie that comes out. Quite a contrast to me, who these days, sees a movie in the theatre about once every 4 months.  But yesterday, with the kid home with the guys, MIL and I headed out to see a movie we've both been anxious to see - Love and Other Drugs.

FINALLY, redemption for the disappointment that was "Prince of Persia".  In the trailer for "Prince of Persia", they made it look like Jake Gyllenhaal was shirtless throughout.  Well - *spoiler alert* - he wasn't.  Had his shirt off for all of 5 seconds in that movie.  In "Love and Other Drugs", you see a LOT of Jake (and A LOT of Anne Hathaway for that matter).  But washboard abs aside, it was a funny, sad, frustrating, touching movie.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars (it was no Love, Actually), though maybe an extra half star for the excellent use of bodies. Gratuitous yet effective.

Really? Really?

I can't believe it's been over a year since I blogged!  OK, I know I'm a crazy twitterer, but you can't really express everything in a tweet... looks like a New Year's resolution if ever there was one.  I SHALL blog again!  With photos!
