"The Descendants"...

...I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year! I'm in Florida, honestly just chilling out, eatin a lot and visiting my mom. Today, both of us and her two girlfriends went and saw "The Descendants" with George Clooney-yum! Ironically, when I was here for New Year's two years ago, we went to a movie on New Year's Day and George Clooney was also in that!

Summary: "With his wife Elizabeth on life support after a boating accident, Hawaiian land baron Matt King takes his daughters on a trip from Oahu to Kauai to confront the young real estate broker, who was having an affair with Elizabeth before her misfortune."

Review: First off, let me say that it is rated R. Now even though I'm almost 30, going to a movie where the f-bomb is dropped every other sentence and some really off-cuff comments are made, still makes me blush! It is also listed as a comedy/drama. Yes...TONS of drama. As for the comedy, not so much. I mean there is comedic relief but definitely not enough to list it as a comedy.

I think had I gone and seen this with my girlfriends or my husband, I may have liked it more but sitting in the theater with my mom and her two super conservative friends, I was thinking the whole time, "OMG! I can't believe they just said that!" The movie was also super slow moving but it still made me cry...a lot. Let's blame it on the pregnancy hormones, shall we?

OH! Also, I was super pumped because I got the student rate and my mom was super excited because she got the senior rate. Neither of us met the criteria for either but when my mom went to order the tickets, she said senior out of habit and said a child for me. I was like, "Umm....I don't think they'll think I'm a child!" We didn't realize until we got into the theater and saw our tickets that I got the student rate. I'm glad I still look like a young, college kid! :)

I am jealous that you are in Florida and I am nowhere near a warm destination.

I hope you had a nice New Years.
