Decided to take the kids to a movie this weekend. Wow. What a shock that was! Two adults, 2 children, some popcorn, drinks.. and a grand ole total of $61.87 later.. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs! I stood there, holding the payment slip in my hand… $61.87.. for a movie? That’s insane. It’s no wonder that people download these things… although there seemed to be a fair number of people in the theatre.
The movie was pretty good. Not $61.87 worth of good, but when I looked over at the kids, they appeared to be enjoying it. There were plenty of little things intended for adults, so I had more than a few chuckles.
I had read an early review that complained that the movie got very “preachy” about half-way through, and I could see that. It wasn’t really something that bothered me, but there was definitely a moral message being conveyed.
All in all, I enjoyed it, but I certainly could have waited until it came out on DVD.
