Movie Night

A family in the church spontaneously invited me over for dinner last Saturday. I was very thankful because it meant that I didn’t have to eat another microwaveable meal. The food was great and the company was wonderful and for an added bonus they invited me to stay and watch Meet the Robinsons, which was better than I had expected. It was cute and family friendly, which meant very predictable but surprisingly enjoyable.

The best part was the T-Rex answering Bowler Hat Guy’s question on why the boy had not been caught, "'Cause I have a big head and little arms, and I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through. [the pause in which Bowler Hat Guy stares angrily into handheld mind control device. T-Rex give a cute face] Master?"

The storyline was decent and the characters likeable. I give the flick two "little arm" thumbs up. It's a good one to watch over Christmas break.

We watched that with our kids on Wednesday night. We all enjoyed it too...it was pretty funny, and a lot different than other kids' movies.

Every time I saw the previews I would laugh about the head/arm thing. I'll have to see the movie so I can laugh at the rest of it.

Liz, hun, have you seen the weather?

Steph, I know. I still want to come but it doesn't look wise. I want to see you. I want to go shopping. This whole snow thing makes me want to pout.
