The movie was released nationwide a week ago. My mom and I went to go see it the day after it opened--on a Saturday afternoon, matinee style, and when we arrived BOOM it was sold out. This weekend we used our smarts. I ordered my tickets on Fandango so we were guaranteed to get in. We arrived just in time to get our popcorn and drinks, and then again BOOM we walked into a sold out theater at 2:20 in the afternoon! The movie theater worker man found us two seats smack in the middle and the previews began.
This movie is HILARIOUS. And what's better? There is actually a story line. My mom cried, but that isn't saying much she cries at everything. Melissa McCarthy is so funny. One of the funniest women in the entertainment business hands down in my opinion. To see her play this crazy character was so fun. Not only she is "colorful" (said many times in the movie), but she is spunky, obsessive, mean, rude, a criminal, etc. Jason Bateman is great too. I really have loved him lately. He was the perfect fit for this role.
One of my favorite sections of the movie is summed up here in these pictures...
I also ordered some fun things online this weekend--I will show them off after they arrive--I am pretty excited though, I must say! I hope you all had a great weekend! I am enjoying President's Day with another day off from work--yay!
I am linking up with Weekend Shenanigans---you should too!
