Movies of the Week



We’ve had a busy week here at the Cooper household.  Which doesn’t leave much time for movie watching with Flower.  Especially since she went and had some teenage girl time in the form of a sleep over. But here’s what we watched this week:

Runaway Bride:  When we were at the beach, we drove through the town that this movie was filmed in.  And Flower had never seen it!  I have the soundtrack to this movie and it’s one of my favorites.  Although, I’m not sure why I don’t own it.  It just reinforced the time period in which I grew up because I thought all the clothes in it were really cute.  I wonder if I will continue to think that late ’90s clothes are cute.

Ballet Shoes: Emma Watson is in this one.  It’s about 3 girls who were found as babies and raised as sisters.  When their guardian disappears, they had to be trained in acting, dance, etc. in order to pay for their way.  This was an odd little show but really good!  Worth a watch.

The Count of Monte Cristo:  Flower said that she really liked this one.  She also said that it makes more sense when you see all of it and not just a random bit for school.  I’d agree with that one.  Juice likes it because there is sword fighting in it.  I like it for the funny little bits in it.  And we’re naming our next boy “The Maggot”.

That’s it for movies we watched together this week!  Flower watched The Spiderwick Chronicles and West Side Story with friends.  I watched Sneakers with Juice.

Sad to say, that this is one of the last Saturdays we have with Flower!  I can’t believe the summer is almost over and she has to go back home.   I’m sure her family will be thrilled to see her, but I’m super sad she’s going.  Maybe she can come next year?!

    I wonder if there is anyone who has not seen Runaway Bride and who does not love it. Great movie!
