#25 30 Day Movie Challenge

#25 The movie you last saw in the theater

I missed this post last night (did you miss it too?).  I got caught up in preparing for my new calling at church -- Cub Scout Committee Chair -- can we say "yikes"? 

So you get two tonight.  Yippee.

This summer we saw a lot of movies.  One of the local movie theaters offered free movies through the summer.  So we saw most of what was offered, whether we already owned the DVD or not.  Plus, Josh gets discount tickets through work, so our list of movies was large.

This summer we saw:

Cars 2
Transformers 3
Despicable Me
Nanny McPhee Returns
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
X-Men: First Class
Shrek 4
How to Train Your Dragon

But the last one we saw was

The Smurfs

I give this movie an "Eh."  It was cute enough, and there were a few times that I literally laughed out loud.  But Gargamel was annoying, despite the fact that he was played by Hank Azaria, who I absolutely love.  There was some crude humor, especially with some of the explicit uses of the word "smurf".  You could rent it from Redbox, but be sure to watch it before you buy it.

That's what we were afraid of. We figured they were probably shooting to entertain our generation with this instead of the new generation. Bummer.
