Wow. When my son asked me to take him to see this, I wasn’t particularly enthused. I expected a cheesy/funny slapstick kind of film that would hopefully have a few moments I found funny. But wow. This film is really good.

The premise is fairly standard – guy who has a really good life and happy family, but doesn’t quite see it that way, gets a wake-up call. So, nothing new there, but it was really well done. There is some absolutely hilarous laugh-out-loud comedy (and yeah, some of it is cheesy/funny slapstick), but the film packs a big emotional punch at the end, too. Really well done – good cast, good performances, and I left the cinema feeling determined not to allow myself to “fast-forward” through my life, always looking ahead to when the “good stuff” will arrive. The good stuff is here, right now. Every day. That’s worth remembering. :) 9/10

I think S has been wanting to see this one and I've been on the fence about it because although I really like the premise, I really dislike Sandler. With a passion. Maybe now I'll consider it a little more for the next time we have time together and actually want to go to a movie. Well, if it's still being shown. :D

I'm a day late to this entry, which is actually good timing ... because I wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday today!

I'm glad you're my friend. Just don't forget to send me an autographed copy of your book when you're rich and famous someday.

(smile)

Thank you for the birthday wishes, and for the books!

I'm very glad to have you as a friend, too. And *big ginr and huge hugs* - you know why! :D

Also - I need to chat with you offline - I'm going to be sort of down in your neck of the woods next week, and wanted to see if maybe we could arrange lunch or dinner together, or something. I'll e-mail you in the next day or two. :)

Great! I'll look for your e-mail. I may or may not have family flying in this weekend for the week ... a visit that has taken an unexpectedly uncomfortable twist, by the way.

Either way, I'm sure I can break free for you. Oh, hey ... I was really glad and not surprised to hear you were the one.
