Weekend Movie Madness

Fiance and I have very different tastes in movies, so this makes it hard to find movies that we both want to watch. We have some genres that we both like, including motivational sports movies, legal thrillers, dramedys, and comedies. We talk about movies that we both want to see and then try to save those for weekends we are together. This weekend we got caught up on some movies we have been waiting to watch. Here is what I thought . . . I am ranking the movies based on how much I liked them.

1. I LOVED Dan in Real Life. I had heard mixed reviews. Initially I wanted to see it because I love Steve Carell. I heard he had a more serious role, so I was prepared for a serious movie. It was really good. I think I would consider it a dramedy. If you haven't seen it, I would definitely recommend it.

2. Walk Hard - the movie was funny. It was definitely a parody of Walk the Line. If you aren't expecting much with this movie, you'll probably get a few good laughs.

3. I love Will Ferrell. He is one of my favorite comedians. However, Semi-Pro was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I was most excited to watch this movie and I was the most disappointed with this one. It wasn't really funny and I felt like I was struggling to laugh at something in the movie. So, if you were on the fence, I would say to skip this one.
