17 Again

I have had a real interesting movie experience recently so decided to share my thoughts with you...


A fantastic movie which I really enjoyed! It's got all the ingredients of a great movie and leaves you with a nice warm fuzzy feeling - which I quite like when leaving the cinema hehe. Definitely something I would buy on DVD and watch again. Eric was a bit reluctant to see it as he thought it was another Freaky Friday sort of movie and said that's been overdone now. But after seeing the movie he did agree with me that it was really good and not another "Freaky Friday" movie. The story in a nutshell, "A former high school basketball star gets a second shot at life when he's miraculously transformed into a teenager and offered the opportunity to redefine his future."


Oh my goodness where do I start... mmm... terrible, horrible, bad, please don't go and see this! I am not exaggerating, it was so bad that I walked out of the cinema after 20 minutes. (Yes you can do that, just because you paid for the ticket doesn't mean you're obliged to ingest filth). The story is about a man who is about to get married and needed to find a best man which resulted in a series of "man dates". Sadly even if there was some sort of story line there it is just too loaded with sexual comments and innuendos, and peppered with strong language. I am usually sensitive to this sort of stuff anyway and prefer not to watch movies like this, but this one was way over the top and not even funny!

After this traumatic experience Eric and I chatted about how useful it would be to read movie reviews from a Christian perspective as we do tend to view what's acceptable differently from the world. In the past we used a movie review website called Rotten Tomatoes. Sadly we found that the movies we considered really good had really low ratings and the movies we thought were horrible had high ratings.

Thankfully we came across a brilliant move review website which reviews movies in great detail! Check out The Dove Foundation. If only we read this review before going to the cinema to see I love you, Man! Oh well, at least we can warm you about it. Have a great weekend and take care what movies you watch - remember rubbish in - rubbish out. Leave a comment about these movies or any other movie that you have seen lately.

What movies have you loved or loathed lately, I would like to share some more reviews.
