Renters Remorse...

Have you ever rented a movie only to find out it wasn't what you thought it was going to be? I did that last night. I got home from hanging out with the youth kids from church and really needed to unwind (a few were driving me crazy). I was tired of doing homework and wanted to watch a movie. So, I turned to the OnDemand channel to see some of the new releases. I was going through the movies and saw "My Best Friends Girl" with Dane Cook and Kate Hudson in it. I read on the screen that it was the unedited version but didn't think anything of it. I thought I was going to get a funny movie about some relationships. I was right, but I was also wrong. The movie had no laugh out loud moments for me. And it had a lot of words that I would rather not hear (and I would rather my mother not hear while she is trying to sleep in the next room). So I kept the volume down most of the movie so it would wake her up.

About five minutes into the movie I realized I was probably not going to like the movie, but I had just spent $4.99 on it and I was going to watch it. I ended up watching the whole movie. It was not the best or funniest movie in the world, and it was definitely not worth the $5 I spent on it, but I guess it was OK. I will definitely make sure I know what movie I am purchasing before I purchase it next time. I thought I had heard about this movie before and that it was going to be funnier. I guess I was thinking of another movie.

It did remind me of Hitch though and that is a pretty good movie.

It was nice to be able to watch a movie though and not think about work or school for 2 hours. I will have to do this again. Only next time I will know what movie I am going to buy so I won't have renter's remorse again.

On a good note, I am headed to watch Madagascar 2 with the family later this afternoon. I KNOW that movie will be a good one to watch.

Until next time...
