aloha friday: dinner and a movie

So Dan and I have some pretty major plans for Valentines Day. We’re thinking about going out for lunch and a movie and hiring someone (the daughter of one of his coworkers we’re hoping) to babysit MM for a couple hours (I’ll still want to bring BB since she’s nursing and she’s a pretty easy going bambino). The details are still very much up in the air and contingent on us finding a baby sitter, but in the meantime, I’m scoping out the possible movies I’d want to see and I’ve narrowed it down to the following (assuming they are in theater still and at the right times, etc.):

Valentines Day : “A diverse group of Los Angelenos navigate their way through romance and heartbreak over the course of one Valentine’s Day.” This one is starring so many big names that we love like Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Taylor Lautner, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher… The plot seems a bit cliched and of course these GAGILLION HUGE STARS movies have been done before, but I tend to like them, so… could be fun.

When In Rome: Kristen Bell (aka Veronica Mars) and Josh Dumahel star in this cute romantic comedy. “Disillusioned with romance, an ambitious New Yorker travels to Rome, where she plucks magic coins from a special fountain. The coins attract an assortment of odd suitors, including a sausage merchant, a street magician and an artist. But, when a persistent reporter throws his hat in the ring, she wonders if his love is the real thing.”

Sherlock Holmes: “Robert Downey Jr. brings the legendary detective to life as he has never been portrayed before. Jude Law stars as Holmes’ trusted colleague, Watson, a doctor and war veteran who is a formidable ally for Sherlock Holmes. Rachel McAdams stars as Irene Adler, the only woman ever to have bested Holmes and who has maintained a tempestuous relationship with the detective…” The english major nerd in me is anxious to see this one and it’s got enough “guy stuff” to interest the hubby. He’ll watch chick flicks with me with little complaint, but he might honestly prefer a “guy” movie. Not sure…

Avatar: Everyone is talking about this movie. From what I hear it’s the New Big with “the oohhh and the ahhh” according to Craig Ferguson. “AVATAR takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home…

Which of the above movies would you most like to see in theater for Valentines Day?

  1. Well since I’m lover and a giver and if the hubs possibly takes me out to a movie, I’d willingly see Avatar (a) because it sounds like if I don’t see this movie, I will be scoffed and scorned and (b) because I know my hubs would probably prefer this one over a chic flick. I actually rather watch a chic flick at home.


  2. You’re brave to take BB to a theater. I never trusted our kids to keep quiet long enough to go to a movie.

    I think “Valentine’s Day” looks like an American “Love Actually”… which means I DEFINITELY want to see it!


  3. I’ve already seen Sherlock Holmes, it was pretty good. We both enjoyed it. We’re planning to see Avatar, daycare is doing Parents Night Out on the 13th. Avatar is what we intended to see instead of Sherlock, but it was sold out.

    I do want to see both Valentines Day and When in Rome but we’ll probably end up renting them.
