The Bucket List

We watched this last night (thanks to part of an iTunes gift certificate). I hadn't wanted to see it for some reason, but I think it might have been because I heard someone throws up. Anyway, the last show we iTuned was more my choice than Matt's, so it was his turn.

Anyway, it is a story about two unlikely hospital roommates that are both told they have six months to a year to live. One of them (Jack Nicholson) is extremely wealthy, and he talks Morgan Freeman into joining him to fulfill their bucket list (a list of things to do before they kick the bucket).

It ended up being a much better show than I thought. I cried (but that's not saying much). It does have a least one vomiting scene. I think if I remember correctly that the reason for the rating was some language. If you have TV Guardian or some other such thing, it'd be great.

Definitely, Maybe

This movie is a story told by a father to his daughter about how he and her mom met (the show opens with him being given divorce papers). He told her he had two serious girl friends, and that he's changing the names of people so she has to guess which one ends up being her mom.

The MPAA gave it the following rating: "PG-13 for sexual content, including some frank dialogue, language and smoking." I had no idea that a movie would be rated PG-13 for having smoking in it. Interesting.

There was definitely stuff I didn't like, but I'm not sure I really liked the story line either. It basically seemed to be about how this guy couldn't get a relationship to work out, over, and over, and over. I'm not even sure why he and his wife ended up calling it quits (since the majority of the movie is before he even got together with her).

Mamma Mia

I have to say, I went to this movie knowing nothing about it, other than they sang Abba songs. And since I love Abba songs, I was all for it.
This movie is cheesy. Totally cheesy. Funny, but cheesy. And Pierce Brosnan should not sing. Ever.
On the little rating thing it says that there are some sex-related comments. I'd say a little bit more than some. Lots of innuendo in this movie.
I felt like bursting out into song several times during the movie though. I love Abba, did I mention that? Meryl Streep is a good singer. Pierce Brosnan is not. (Did I say that already?)
