Boy oh Boy do I have a movie recommendation for you!
First, my disclaimer: When we search for a movies on the shelves of Blockbuster we very rarely pick your big Hollywood films. We are often drawn to foreign films and anything with those little “laurel wreath” award thingys catches our eyes. Our tastes compliment each other as I enjoy many “guy movies” like James Bond and Hubby enjoys a good subtitled flick and he might not want you to know this but Sense and Sensibility is one of his favorite films!!!
I sent Joel out the other night and held my breath – we are 99% on the same page with movies but the problem is there are so few good ones out there I did not want him to come home with something lame or too “blow ’em up”.
Instead he picked the funniest movie we have seen in a long time; Easy Virtue. HILARIOUS! Especially if you love Brits and their wicked humor. The entire movie if you pay attention is a jab at them from the outdoor sportsman activities to the over- cooked unrecognizable vegetables. Did I mention it is HILARIOUS? At one point we were grabbing each others forearms with tears streaming down our faces in laughter. (Again, my disclaimer is my sense of humor is…well…not mainstream). Anyhoo – Here is the trailer and even if you find it dreadful the costumes worn by Jessic Beal are TO DIE FOR and have convinced me yet again that I was born in the wrong decade (what would I give to wear my red lips every day with a head full of pin curls????) and, well, let’s face it…can a girl get enough Colin Firth?
