Back Up Plan

Let me first say that I've seen plenty of kill e'm, shoot 'em dead and mafia movies in my time. Some I like, and some I don't. The BF and I take turns renting movies and normally he says he hates all my choices.

Editor's Note: I don't typically make the BF watch romantic comedies. You will NEVER see me drag him to Sex and the City and be "that guy" mostly because he takes movie lines and will make me hate them. To get himself through the movie he will constantly repeat the line and then repeat them for the rest of my life.

Have you ever seen Sweet Home Alabama? If he even hears Reese Witherspoon's voice, he yells from whatever room he is in, "Awww, go back to your double-wide and fry something." See my point?

On Saturday night when my girlfriends called me for a movie, I was stoked because we haven't been to one in forever and I've been wanting see so many. Then they said, "We are going to see the Back Up Plan."

Me: Are the boys going?
My friends: Oh yea, Mike and Jesse really want to see it.
Me: They want to see the Back Up Plan?
My friends: Oh yea, really bad.
Me: And they know J.Lo is in it?

I share this news with the BF and he then tries to host an "impromptu house warming party for boys only" but my girlfriends shoot down that idea and we all head to the theater.

The boys didn't hate the whole thing, although they were introduced to quite the "natural" birthing scene that even had my friends and I squirming in our seats. All the BF took away from the movie was the actor's shirts. He loved the actor's v-neck t-shirts which he wore over and over again in different scenes. He is now on the lookout for the v-necks.

And, I have the feeling he will be repeating the line, "Your muffins suck ass," from now on.

Every guy I've ever met loves the movie Never Been Kissed. There must be something about Josie Grosie they like.

I'm not longer allowed to make movie choices in our house because my taste is so bad.

I don't care. I LOVE the cheesy.

My and Big Man are avid movie goers but there is only so many chick flicks I can drag the poor boy to see.

That water birthing scene scarred me, but The Back Up plan wasn't TERRIBLE on a scale of chick flicks.

Ha ha I love your BF. I think he and I will get along JUST fine. He's a very Renaissance Man. Reason number #100 why I like being single, I drag myself to whatever movie I want.

At least he'll go with you! I have to drag mine kicking and screaming so most of the time I go with someone else.

Boys are weird. Actually, maybe just my bf is weird.

i love movies. some suck some dont. you never know unless you watch them. i never wanted to see gone with the wind, or glory, or cold mountain, or sherlock holmes, or plenty of other movies i deemed "gay" because they were old or set in old times.. but ended up loving!

I guess I'm one of those girls who drags her husband to see the movie Sex and the City and stand in line to receive my own copy of Twilight. Lol good times and I'm glad he doesn't complain!
