Stranger than Fiction

I took Mom to the movies today. We saw the Will Ferrell movie "Stranger than Fiction." I didn't know it would talk so much about death, but... I guess that's providential. It was a nice movie, except for the usual things that contribute to a PG-13 rating.

Reminds of me of the first Broadway show my Mom and I went to see (she took me as a treat). It was Jekyll and Hyde and who would have anticipated the opening scene in which a daughter is at her father's bedside at his death. Oh well...

Was it funny though? It wasn't as bad as my brother forcing my mom to see "The Hills Have Eyes". I am suprised she didn't walk out of the theatre. Enjoy your time there over the holidays. I spoke with Sr. H and she said you'd be there for a while after the tour. It's nice that you'll be with your mom during the holidays. Hope all remains well. You are still in my prayers.

When next you go to the movies please remember the cotton balls to stuff in your ears. It beats poking one's fingers therein to quell the deafening sound track.
sr. Anne's mom
PS...It is only a pipe dream that sr. anne will be with us in person during the holidays. we are so grateful that she got us through the emotional whiplash stage....

The movie had some funny moments, but it was not entirely a comedy.

Oops, I just re-read my post above. It should have read:

Reminds of me of the first Broadway show my Mom and I went to see (she took me as a treat)after my Dad had died...

Hopefully now my comment makes better sense.

Peace and blessings!

I thought it was marketed as a comedy (what movie with Will Farrell WOULDN'T be?) I was kind of disappointed but it was good if you are in the mood for a brooding, thoughtful kind of movie. I felt kind of like a dork on the edge of my seat waiting to laugh at every turn. When there was a giggle, I felt like I laughed WAY too loud for the anticipation of the thing. Whoops.
