husband of the year award will likely go to mine, for he not only brought me chicken wings for dinner (mmm…chicken wings…), he also willingly went to see a 10pm showing of Twilight with me last night. Willingly. no force. no bribery. nothing. he was willing to go to the mall theater and watch this tweeny movie with me and 87 of my closest pre-teens and the one orthodox jewish dude who was there ALONE.
i came to terms with this yesterday. please don’t judge me for seeing it. or for racing out to see it before it was actually released. i don’t judge you.
he totally won me over. he was great.
the movie itself was pretty much exactly what i expected. a lot of angst. a lot of will-they-or-won’t they. a lot of smoldering glances. a lot of Bella being klutzy. a lot of pretty cheesy dialogue. pretty sub-par make-up jobs, especially on Peter Facinelli’s Dr. Cullen.
only i didn’t have to read any “she murmured” every three paragraphs. and i didn’t have to read Bella’s long and drawn out speeches about how stunning! and painstakingly beautiful! and gorgeous! Edward is.
(but please don’t get me started on the baseball scene. when you see it, you will have to explain to me what the hell was up with the hats. THE HATS?!?? my good god)
(or Jacob’s hair. PUKE)
so, needless to say, tweenAli LOVED it.
tweenAli also enjoyed getting free movie passes on the way out due to complications during the movie. they are doing construction in the mall and halfway through the baseball scene an alarm started going off. insert tween girl pandemonium here. and for about 5 minutes the surround sound disappeared.
so, all in all. no complaints. i’m just really thankful i didn’t have to see a midnight show, like someone else i know. because as it was, i needed a giant big-gulp sized diet coke to make it through the 10:00pm showing. but i’m so glad i did….and like a giggle little tweenybopper, i will be looking forward to the next three movies. because i really want them to just do it already.
*this title is totally unrelated to my post. but i love me some 30Rock. and i love me some Steve Martin. so, obviously, last night’s episode…made my entire month. well, except that whole election day thing. that was a pretty good month-maker too.
