Easy Virtue!

I don’t feel like removing the feature just yet so scroll all the way to the bottom to push pause on the music. Merci.
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?
Positively NOT.

    We don’t watch T.V. at the Bunny Bungalow but we do watch good movies, which we get from Netflix. So thanks for this recommendation which I put on our list…can’t wait to see it.

    My hubby and I watched this movie a couple of weeks ago and, like you, we were in stitches! Was it the dog scene that just made you cry with laughter? Every cast member was brilliant in their role and the answer to your question is an unqualified NO! One can never get enough Colin Firth!!

    Tell your hubby that my hubby also loves Sense & Sensibility and he loves the (of course) Colin Firth version of P&P. He thinks the sardonic wit is wonderful!
