Weekend Wrap up

This weekend invloved the basement work, an impromptu trip to NYC, getting stuck in traffic and barely making it back to drop off our handyman who is AMAZING, birthday celebrations gone haywire but still lots of fun, a bajillion trips to Home Depot, and two unsuccessful attempts to watch this move and finally finishing it on Sunday morning.

I was honestly really excited to see this movie and I thought the first half was pretty good, fine it made girls seem a little crazy but I thought it was cute...Towards the end I felt it was a little long and drawn out and considering the whole point of the move was to dispel the idea of happily ever after and be more realistic Beth still got her engagement ring, Gigi still got the guy, and Mary and Cooper were oh so in love! I thought the book was hilarious and a lot more realistic then the movies take on things. All in all a cute movie but not sure it got it's point across?

What a great weekend! I was really looking forward to He's Just Not That Into You as well, but I was disappointed because I felt it protrayed marrieds in a negative light, but I loved the ending! I'm a sucker for happy endings, ha!=)

I saw this movie too and I thought it was cute, but nothing too exceptional. I too liked the book better. :)

I totally agree with you...super cute movie, all the right people in it, just a TEENY bit too long...like 30-40 mins...lol

sounds like a jam-packed awesome weekend! I did NOT know that the movie was based on a book :O Good thing you told me, because I was planning on watching that movie and I like to read the books first. I know what I'm reading next :)

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished this weekend! I've had a few movies I've rented that took about 3 days to finish as well - I haven't seen this one yet, I've been meaning to!

Sounds like a crazy busy weekend. Same feelings about that movie, I was looking forward to it, saw it in the theatre, and it was a total let down for me. Great cast though!
