Benjamin Button....A MUST SEE!


This afternoon we decided to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, what an awesome movie! I had read the reviews and some had described it as slow moving...but I found that the movie moved along at the just the right pace, enough to keep your interest (and the Hubby didn't fall asleep...that's means alot..believe me!).

I admit...I have always had a thing for Brad Pitt (if you remember an earlier post of mine..). Ever since Thelma and Louise...his incredible dimpled smile and boyish good looks....ummm yummy. And again I have always been Team Aniston...but Brad, Brad, Brad....oh, excuse me...

This movie had the simularities of Forest Gump (as so many reviewers have said) with the romance of A River Runs Through It and Legends of the Fall. It is well worth the nearly 3 hours of cienamatic viewing. The makeup and special effects are stunning and left me wondering many times how the heck they did it.

If you have the time and the opportunity to see this movie, definately go see it....I think there will be alot of talk about this one come Oscar time.

This one is definitely on my list even though I have issues with Brad..and I'm glad Aniston's Marley and Me out did Benjamin Button by a mile. Another movie I want to see, but I know the ending so I don't know if I can handle it.

A young boy went up to his father and asked him, "Dad, what is the
difference between potentially and realistically?"

The father thought for a moment, then answered, "Go ask your mother if
she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and then, ask your brother if he'd sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Come back and tell me what you learn from that."

So the boy went to his mother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt
for a million dollars?" The mother replied, "Of course I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids to a great University!"

The boy then went to his sister and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt
for a million dollars?" The girl replied, "Oh my God! I LOVE Brad Pitt! I would sleep with him in a heartbeat, are you nuts?"

The boy then went to his brother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt
for a million dollars?" "Of course," the brother replied. "Do you know how much a million bucks would buy?"

The boy pondered the answers for a few days and then went back to his dad.
His father asked him, "Did you find out the difference between potentially and realistically?"

The boy replied, "Yes. Potentially, you and I are sitting on three million dollars, but Realistically, we're living with two hookers and a homo.

I didn't hear it was that good. Maybe I'll reconsider seeing it.
