Last Night, fueled on a teeny nap, my darling husband treated us to the Drive-In. I think he has had it planned in his head all week, but, likes to 'shock and awe' us. I was wondering why he was insistent on me not lettinghim sleep past 6p.m. and then snarled at me when I gave him until 6:30 p.m. thinking that I was being a sweety. He had plans!
Alas, we made it just in time! We usually take the kids to play in their classic, hazardous park equipment kid area before hand, but, my 'sweetness' kinda put a dent in that. I'm alright with the way that happened because everything there were puddles that lead to China all over the place, so, I imagine the equipment was pretty slippery.
Anywho, it was a WONDERFUL night to end a really intense week.
The two movies we watched were:
Which my youngest (3.5 yo) got to stay awake for, but, then she fell asleep...so, we're not counting her vote. She did vote for SMURFS.
(biased vote for Smurfs:1)
The WINNER is:
My eldest son (13) voted Smurfs.
He said the deciding factor was the villains. Apparently the villain in the Spy kids movie was 'lame' (too 'cheesy') and the one in Smurfs was a riot. He enjoys laughing at the villains.
My eldest daughter (12) voted Spy Kids.
She loved the girls being the tough guys and she LOVED the "Cheesy humour".
Tank (7.5) voted Smurfs.
He enjoyed the humour.
Marshmallow (6) voted Spy Kids.
He liked the family reconciliation. I'd give give you the verbatim explanation, but, it would spoil the movie.
Princess (3) voted Smurfs...she only watched the Smurfs though. I think it honestly would be a tough one for her because she would LOVE to do some Kung-Fu maneuvers on her siblings like in the Spy Kids movie...
Hubby voted Smurfs...one sec., I'll interrupt his Zombie shoot-'em game on the first working XBOX to ask him why....
I asked for a sentence, he one-upped me and gave you one word. I'm so shocked.
Myself, I voted for Smurfs.
I'd like to think it wasn't because it was the movie with the least amount of bathroom breaks. I mean, really how many times do my children need to pee?!! Each of them had to go per movie 5 times each?! I'm logging it in my fitness log. Because it was a long dark walk to the bathrooms and back at the drive-in and it gave me the 'heebie-geebies', I'm logging the energy I had generated to form the goose bumps that covered me from head to toe each time!
Yup. I don't want anyone to go under false pretenses thinking they're going to see an Eddy Murphy or Robin Williams, but, asides from Smurf nostalgia...Hank Azaria is soooooo cool and he sealed my approval with his performance.
Have a Blessed Weekend!!
