Thanking my public library once again for these treats and for accepting my late fines with a smile!
I have been borrowing this DVD from the library and renewing it the maximum number of times allowed and then placing it on hold again for months now. I wanted to re-read the book before watching it so when a lazy weekend happened upon me, I did the re-read and then popped in the movie. The book was excellent the fifth or so time around and the movie was done beautifully. The kid in me loves this story of friendship just as much as my 30-something self does! If you don't know the story of Charlotte, her webs and her buddy Wilbur, you need to get right on that! Wonder when the next re-read will be?
Stranger Than Fiction
Oh Will Ferrell! How is it that you make me laugh, even when you are not trying? I loved this clever movie and give it two thumbs up for excellent execution of a quirkly storyline and a mash up of a cast. Will Ferrell's initial awkward scenes with his love interest played by Maggie Gyllenhall are brilliant!
In true Ben Stiller fashion, this movie is so ridiculously ridiculous and over the top that you can't help but laugh. My only complaint is a scene where the word retard is repeatedly used inappropriately. Loved the concept for this film as well as the perfectly cast cameo by one Tom Cruise!
Thankful to be able to keep doing the Dewey in November!
