Lights, Camera, Action

Going to the movies is a great way to spend a cold and /or rainy day.

On a recent weekend get away, we wanted to get out and enjoy the day without being uncomfortable in the cold wind.

Why not a movie?  It’s something we don’t indulge in often.

I am a picky movie goer. My list is long on what I don’t want to endure for entertainment.

 

I don’t want to see violence… enough of that on the news everyday.

I don’t want to see movies that would make my mother blush and cover my eyes.

I don’t want to hear profanity.

I don’t want to sit in a theater with noisy kids.  ( don’t hate me…I’ve done my time.)

 

So when I see a current movie with a rating of PG 13 and it’s also a romantic comedy…… I AM IN.

And if it’s a matinee..It just doesn’t get any better.

 

The popcorn, the comfortable seats, the big screen, the excitement as the previews start….. what’s not to love.

yes, I even enjoy the previews.

And the winner is………………………………….….wait for it……..

LAST VEGAS

 

Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline.

These guys are so much fun to watch together. None disappointed.

Mary Steenburger, was perfect for her role as a nightclub singer and love interest in the movie.

Lots of laughs centered around 4 guys going to Las Vegas for a bachelor party.

What better place.

 

 

I have been to Las Vegas many times..(daughter lives there) and it’s always interesting to see

on film the places I have visited.

 

The movie is sweet and only had a couple of scenes where I cringed a little…PG13….seriously?

 

If you want to see a lighthearted movie that will keep you laughing………………

 

Last Vegas it is.

 

It may not win any Oscars ……….and again it may

 

but it sure gets my vote for perfect entertainment

on a cold, windy Saturday afternoon.

 

 

You should see it……. really……. you should .
