The Only Movie I Have Seen in the Past 2 Months
As some of you may know, Christina and I recently returned to Florida after spending the first 3 years of our marriage as a somewhat poor, but undoubtedly content, college family. Our last few weeks in Hawaii were fun and exciting as we attempted to do all the "touristy" types of things we never had time for when I was a full-time student. Those last few weeks in Hawaii were followed by a two week long roadtrip starting in San Francisco and ultimately ending in West Palm Beach via Orem, UT, Boulder, CO, St. Louis, MO, and Atlanta, GA.
For four weeks following the trip we tried to make sense of our new "two-income" and both "tired and unmotivated at the end of the day" lifestyle, while setting up a temporary residence at my parents house. All said, we never really had the time or the energy to go out and see a movie - one of my favorite things. So last weekend we decided to treat ourselves to the comedy "Ghost Town." It stars Michael Scott's equivalent on the British version of the Office - Ricky Gervais - who was equal parts wit and charm (very nerdy charm that is). I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the whip-like wit of English comedians as well as those who like to enjoy a little brain candy every so often without having to be ashamed when telling others about their weekend cinematic excursion.
I don't like to ruin movies for others so I won't say much about the plot, but rather I will gaurantee that you will enjoy this movie from the beginning to the end and you will not feel like the show was a precious $20 or so wasted.
