Other Unimportant Movies I Watched Recently

Superman Returns (2006)

Not bad, especially for a sequel of sorts. Kind of long. The kids thought they were pretty lucky when we deemed this PG-13 movie appropriate for their viewing. Kevin Spacey was a pretty good Lex Luthor.

You, Me and Dupree (2006)

Pretty funny at times, though also vulgar. A positive message about marriage. I like the Wilson brothers. Luke is my favorite, but Owen can be pretty funny.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) (TV edit)

Silly but enjoyable. I really like Hugh Grant in the bad boy roles, and he was hot in this one. Colin Firth is also nice to look at. If only I liked Bridget better. The movie was very different from the book.

The Triplets of Belleville (2003)

This was supposed to be great, but I thought it was boring and not very cohesive, I guess. The animation looked intriguing and quite wonderful sometimes, and there were some mildly interesting and amusing moments (like the aged triplets’ diet of frogs—frog sandwiches, frog soup, frogsicles, etc.), but in general, I just didn’t care that much. Maybe I didn’t get it.

Never Been Kissed (1999)

Some very funny characters, like Drew Barrymore’s male secretary and her friend played by Molly Shannon, make this more interesting than your average romantic comedy. Jon was still not thrilled to have to watch this a second time. But I think it’s cute.
