We saw two movies last weekend. One on Saturday and one on Sunday. Here is my review:

Kingdom of Heaven gets two big Thumbs Up from Mom.

The reviewers are all over the place with one. I wasn't expecting to like this film. and went along reluctantly. The trailers I'd seen seemed to concentrate on the blood and gore, and though interested in the historical period, I was afraid that the violence would be too much for me.

It was violent, of course. The film was about the Crusades! But the story was really about the ideal, but flawed, true Knight. Orlando Bloom did a good job. You can come out of this movie and have something to talk about. Roger Ebert liked this movie and so did I. I'd like to know what you thought.

PETE WAS RIGHT! I'm glad I went.


The next day, it was my turn to choose. When I chose MONSTER-IN-LAW Pete said something like "Ah, do we have to?" I reminded him that he had chosen the last one. He reluctanly went along, as marriage is a series of compromises.

Monster-in- Law is fun and funny. I don't care what the reviewers say. Everyone in the movie was laughing heartedly, even the guys.

Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda are good together. Jane Fonda isn't afraid to show that she is getting older and did not work at covering up her aging skin. I think you will enjoy watching this one if you let yourself. After the movie, Pete told me he did like it after all, but then I knew that because he was laughing as hard as me.

No politically based Fonda bashing comments please.
