...okay is was the first full-price movie we've seen in over a year and a half.
...we had to go.
I ask you: A film comes out called Men Who Stare At Goats. Are we not, in fact, obligated to see it as soon as possible?
Actually, all this came about when I, clicking about the internet and came across the trailer for the movie. I would have bet it was a Cohen Brothers movie -- it's not. But maybe that's because it stars George Clooney and Jeff Bridges (think: The Dude joins the military...).
"We have to see this movie!" I said to...um...Abbey and Zsa Zsa. But I more meant me and perhaps another...human.
Later that day, Heir 1 came home from work and announced that, no matter what happened between then and November 6, there was a movie we were going to see first run --
I broke in and said, "Men Who Stare At Goats?" (Actually, to be honest, I couldn't remember the name of the movie and said something like, "Men and Their Goats," which pretty much sounded like a movie from an entirely different genre...)
Does it make me a bad mother because I went to see the movie on an afternoon Heir 1 had to work? Well, it was the only afternoon that Dirtman and I both had off together and, coincidentally, the afternoon that John Boy offered to pay.
We went to see the movie at this place that just opened up called Alamo Drafthouse. Basically, you take your seat and they wait on you -- snacks, entrees, drinks -- Guiness on tap!!!!! (Guiness on tap requires multiple exclamation points and they don't count against your quota.)
I know they have similar places in more urban areas, but this is a new concept around here.
I repeat: Guiness on tap!
Anyway, the only thing I will say about the movie is that I recommend it. To say anything else would ruin it. Seriously, the less you know, the more you will enjoy it.
Many quotable lines. You know how we Linguinis love those quotable lines...
