The BEE Movie

Yep, we went to the BEE Movie this past weekend. Here is our Review:
Though we both love Jerry Seinfield, this movie somewhat disappointed us! There were definitely funny parts, such as when the bee continuously slams himself into a window repeating, "This time? This time? This time?" As if he is going to get through the glass at some point if he just continues knocking himself into it! There were other funny parts as well, none that I can quote directly. However, the plot itself was rather weak. The bee sues the "humans" for selling the honey that they are making...yeah... It doesn't really have a good motto. Toy story, for example, is all about Friends, Beauty and the Beast is about loving people for who they REALLY are....The Bee Movie is about suing humans...? Anyway, there were a 3 and 4 year old on our right side, and they were continuously saying, "Let's go!" However, the 8 year olds on our other side kept quite the entire time. So, bottom line....we were the only adults without children there! hehe!...the real bottom line is that I wouldn't suggest going with younger children, and if you have older children, be prepared to leave the theater "somewhat entertained"!
This week was a GREAT week at the Salon! I was booked both nights that I was working, and some of my favorite clients came in. It is always better when you make some money and enjoy yourself at the same time! (All too often I enjoy myself at the salon because I am reading a book....therefore...not making money!)
Speaking of reading...and of Bees...
I am reading "The Secret Life of Bees" right now. It is a very interesting book. It is set in the 50's, during the civil rights movement. There hasn't been very many happy events in it, but sadly, I have come to realize that I LOVE depressing books! I don't know if it is the fact that I realize how GOOD my life is, or if I just like to cry! (I am sure that Cody would tell you it is the latter!) Out of the three Twilight books, I enjoyed the second one, the one where Edward is gone and Bella is depressed, the most! Weird, huh?! I am also a HUGE fan of Jody Picoult books. If you have not experienced her yet, I would recommend to do so! I breeze through her books, they pull you in on the first page! The first book that I read was "My Sister's Keeper". It is amazing! However, I WARN YOU, it is depressing, just like all of the other books that I love! So, if you want to get pulled into a book that you can't stop reading, or stop crying over, this is the book to read!

Hey I'm glad you shared your thoughts on Bee movie. We were thinking about going to see it, however we will now probably just wait to rent it. We do live in Borger TX however, and desperate times call for desperate measures! Maybe I'll read a book, but I have to tell you I hate crying so I won't be reading one of your favorites. ~Lacee

I haven't heard too many great things about the Bee Movie, which is disappointing because I really want to see it and LOVE Jerry Seinfeld. I'm sure we'll still see it. Love your book suggestions, I've become the biggest book worm as of late. I just finished an AMAZING BOOK! It's called A Thousand Splendid Suns, by some guy whose name is Arabic. Go check it out, I couldn't put down! Another great read is A Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, great as well. Hmmm, maybe we should start a blogging book club! I might just have to do a post on my favorite book and check out the ones you mentioned in here!

Hey Chels... I was highly dissapointed in the Bee Movie myself. I was expecting a lot more laughing. Oh well, the kids liked it
