This morning we went to see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Jamie was off work (he works a compressed schedule) and we thought that would be a fun movie to see. Movies that start before noon at our local theater are $5 per person. Fritz should have been $5 since it’s 2 and up, but when we said he was three so 5 of us needed tickets, the woman at the ticket booth said she wasn’t going to charge for Fritz. That was a nice little bonus for him to get in free.
The movie was very cute. I am impressed with how they took such a short little story and made it into a nearly hour and a half movie. Ani and Cameron really enjoyed it. Fritz was horrified by the mess the food made on the ground, but otherwise liked it. Adrian fell asleep partway through. It was his naptime and even couch potatoes sometimes fall asleep while watching the screen. Jamie and I liked it, too, making it a great choice to see as a family. (Last time we went to the movies we split up because there was no way Ani or I were going to see Wolverine and no way Jamie or Cameron were going to see The Hannah Montana Movie.)
