Thoughts on a movie - Red




I don't review movies but I picked up Red from redbox and about 15 minutes into the movie my husband made a comment that I knew I had to write about so the rest of the movie I kept laughing about scenes, thinking "oh man, people have to know about that too." 

We have been wanting to watch Red for some time now and we finally picked it up and let me tell you I was not disappointed.  I was constantly laughing and it was full of don't-take-me-too-seriously-action-packed-fun! Plus, it has a cast full of bad-asses (John Malkovich is crazy and I heart him). 

So...the moment that inspired this was when Mary-Louise Parker is in her bed, wearing her sweater, reading a book that she says is "terrible, but I love it," and I look over at my husband because he is laughing hysterically.  When I ask him what he is laughing at, he says, "that would have been you if we didn't get married!"  I can't even deny that it is true!

Seriously, if you just need something that is not too serious and you need a giggle, watch Red.

I loved this movie! Saw it as an inflight movie and I was laughing the whole time. I know that scene you're talking about and is it sad or funny or both that I've had those nights. I loved that Bruce's character was reading along with her on his own. True love, despite the fact that he duct tapes and tranquilizes her later...
