Date night doesn’t happen often around here. Life is busy. When we finally get a chance to get out, I don’t like to waste my time on a crappy movie. This is 40 is NOT a crappy movie. It’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in years. Maybe ever.
I turned 40 last March. The similarities between my life and those depicted in the movie were so many that I can’t pick a single example.
I laughed through the entire movie. I laughed so hard that I cried. I was terrified for a moment when I realized that my life experience is not at all unique, but I got over it.
The only down side was where we chose to see the movie – the Bank Street Theater in New Milford, CT. This is not your typical suburban multiplex. It’s old. It’s been renovated. It’s quirky.
Apparently the middle-age movie market is so bad that they stuck this movie in their lamest theater, down a skinny brick lined walkway (a 10 minute walk) and into the very back of the building.
It wasn’t even a full sized screen.
I was highly irritated. We made our way to two seats in the back of the tiny theater. The seats were super comfy, the kind that lean back and rock. This would normally be awesome, but the guy is front of me was a big man and kept leaning back and slamming into my legs. I had to pull my legs up and hug my knees to avoid getting bruised.
Once the movie started, I didn’t care. Two hours went by and I didn’t notice the pain because I was too busy cracking up and elbowing my husband as if to say - I told you that was annoying or OMG we totally do that.
Have a look at the second trailer.
I honestly can’t wait for this movie to be released on Blu Ray so I can watch it again and again. I’m not kidding. It’s that funny.
Aren’t 40 yet? Don’t you want to see all the fun waiting for you?
