Hmm, what is it about a Friday/Saturday night movie with your boo that makes life so friggin awesome? Who knows? But all I do know is that it absolutely rules! There’s nothing better than to book a loveseat at a cinema, have a box of popcorn (or in my case, sneak something a little tastier and cheaper in, teehee!) and get your favourite flavour “Slush Puppy” and enjoy the 3 hours of movie bliss. So, what is showing this weekend that’s worth watching?
If you’re into romatic comedies, you get to choose between one awesome Justin Timberlake movie and one mediocre Justin Timberlake movie. Apparently Bad Teacher, which stars Justin and Cameron Diaz, is about a seventh grade teacher who hates her job and makes it her goal in life to find a rich, sexy man and she has her eyes set on care-free substitute teacher Scott (Justin Timberlake). This looks awesome and personally I really want to go watch this.
On the other hand you’ve got Friends With Benefits starring Mila Kunis and Justin and basically it’s about them being friends with benefits. Duh. Also, I’ve heard it’s pretty boring, so I won’t recommend it.
If you’re into action movies, Taylor Lautner’s Abduction looks pretty cool! The plot has something to do with Taylor finding out his parents aren’t his real parents and then for some or other reason shadowy forces want him dead, etc, etc. Whatever. It’s Taylor Lautner. On a bike. Nuff said. And your man will be entertained. Score!
If you’re babysitting or entertaining the kids, then no doubt The Smurfs (whether in 3D or not), will keep them happy. No need for a background story on this one, we all know the Smurfs, surely? Oh and it stars the awesome Neil Patrick Harris and Katy Perry plays Smurfette’s voice.
What I don’t recommend, is ZooKeeper. If you must, wait for it on DVD or for it to be broadcast on Mnet because it is a total waste of money. Unless, talking animals giving a goofy, chubby goon advice on how to get a chick is your thing, ya know. I don’t even think your 8 year old niece will like it.
So, do you recommend any movies this weekend? Let me know!
