Movie reviews on the fly

Didn't make it to the movies this weekend, but we did rent a few to view here at home. Crash was hard to watch, but harder to stop watching. The language was atrocious, but probably fairly realistic, and I'm afraid to admit that the portrayal of prejudices and racial stereotyping were probably accurate as well. It was thought-provoking. The Longest Yard ... the best description for it is "inappropriately hilarious." I felt guilty for finding it so funny, since much of the humor was either somewhat crude or otherwise inappropriate. But laughter is the best medicine, and I'm looking for some speedy healing. Last movie for the grownups was The Wedding Date. Cute, nothing spectacular, definitely a rental film and not something worth paying full ticket price at the box office.

I have another post in my head, but since it involves bathroom humor (literally), I'm not sure I have the nerve to post it. I should ask MissZoot to do it, as she would make it funnier than all get out. She can write about anything. I'm just too reserved.

Just surfed in... funny, I watched Crash & Longest yard just last night. Didn't care too much 4 crash..., but loved the Longest Yard!

Almost rented Crash this weekend too, but wasn't sure I was up for it.

Saw The Wedding Date on a plane - agree with your assessment - wouldn't have wanted to pay for it!

This weekend I rented Sahara and Monster-in-Law -- both funny and just what I needed!

We saw Crash when it first came out; definitely hard to watch but I thought it was a very good scene in particular (guy holding his daughter; the guy with the gun...) realllllly got to me.

Haven't seen Longest yard yet. I don't mind inappropriate if it's really funny. I might have to rent it this weekend!

Loved The Longest Yard, but I loved the original as well. Was Monster in Law really worth watching?
