Worth Watching

I'm always on the lookout for a good family movie. By that I mean exactly that, one that is entertaining for everyone in the family regardless of age! I saw one last night, it's definitely worth watching: "Night at the Museum" with Ben Stiller. I was surprised by this movie because it's one where the movie is better than the trailers they ran for it (hardly the normal scenario)... based on those alone I thought this looked dumb and silly. It's neither, in my opinion, but rather fun and heart-warming with just enough scary stuff to delight the kids; (think: "Jumanji") plus, it's laced with fascinating historical characters that might even prompt additional reading and research during summer vacation! The movie comes to a tidy conclusion with a strong priority message guaranteed to make you smile.

Life is Good!

This movie is one on my list to order from the library. I think I'll do it now and get myself on that waiting list. Thanks for the recommendation.

Sounds interesting. I thought the trailers were silly and that I wouldn't enjoy it, but reading what you said has changed my mind.

Mrs. G: I stopped in WalMart on my way to Paducah and bought it so I would have it here when the grandkids visit. I was taking a chance, so I'm pleased to read your great recommendation. Two of them will be here this evening, a perfect time to watch it together.

Thanks for the advice about my Wonky quilt.
Your comment about enjoying fleeting things like the birds, THE CLEANHOUSE etc. got me thinking. You're right, here in Japan I'm drawn to the cherry blossoms which are only here for a week but I don't "enjoy" my clean house, only bemoaning that it will be dirty it a little bit. It's the way you see things isn't it? Thank you.

I totally aree with you about the film. I went to see the film with my 6 year old son and he loved it. For me it was interesting as well. And my son got interested on the Easter island statues. Two weeks later, we were still repeating what that silly statue said and laughing! Take care.
