If we're not at home, check the movie theater

Husband and I have taken up movie-watching since we’ve moved here. Our small town doesn’t have a ton of activities to offer, but it does have cheap movie tickets. (Perfect for cheapskates like us!) In the last couple weeks, we’ve seen Wall-E and Get Smart. I recommend them both. (And I might give away that I am more kid than adult by saying that I secretly liked Wall-E better, even though Get Smart was witty and entertaining.) Plus, Wall-E has memorable quotables like “Eeee-va” and “Waaall-ee” that are fun to say in your best robot voice. Husband was supposed to go out of town on a military trip (TDY in military speak) this coming weekend, but it turns out he doesn’t have to go after all. I have no idea what our plans for the weekend will include, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it involved another trip to the movies. And maybe some more robot voices.

Yes, the hub and I are both big movie goers...the kids look forward to friday movie dates! We've seen Wall-e and Get Smart (Wall-e was my fav). The hulk was pretty good (I'm not a hulk fan) but I enjoyed it. Oh and we also so Hancock recently...it was ok, a lot of @$$hole language for a kid movie..not great, but ok.

We don't go to the movies alot, but we rent them alot. We finally got Netflix to cut down on the cost of Blockbuster. I want to see Wall-e, I think it looks cute!

I get to go hang out with the fam and my 2 year old nephew this weekend. Going to see Wall-E is definitely on my must-do list.

I am glad to hear a recommendation for Wall-e, as the kids really want to go see it!

I'm going home in a few weeks and I can't wait to start seeing some movies! If you see any really good ones, please let me know.

We haven't been out to a theatre in years. Really. Years. But I do want to see Wall-e. Maybe I'll take my girl and leave hubby home...hmmmm....

Oh! I've really wanted to see Get Smart! We are bad movie goers...I usually wait until things come out on video so I can watch them at home!

Wall-E totally looks like the robot from "Short Circuit"... minus the cheesy 80's style
