Jennifer Lopez and The Back Up Plan

Yesterday, with our daughter and hubby, we went to see The Back Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez. We all love movies, so it was a good way to spend the afternoon.

Despite what any of the movie critics may say, it is funny movie. We laughed a lot. No, there wasn't a huge message, except maybe to trust the one you love, but it was definitely entertaining. I don't know about the rest of you, but that's why I go to the movies--to be entertained.

Romantic comedies aren't the only kind of movies I like--being a mystery writer, I love a good mystery or thriller, I don't mind being scared (just as long as there's not too much blood and gore.) I saw Freddy Kreuger once, I don't plan on EVER seeing it again.

What I don't like is movies that have such a heavy handed message that it drags the story down.

No fear with The Back Up Plan--it was just good fun. Probably funnier for those of us who have given birth, though my husband and son-in-law laughed pretty hard.

After the movie, we went to a Chinese buffet.

Then we came home and gabbed for a bit, then watched the Sherlock Holmes movie. It was okay, but could've been tightened.

Today we're headed to the Mother Daughter Luncheon at church. I'll report on that tomorrow.
