After that really funny comedy gig on Friday night we had to say our good-byes to our Friend who was returning to Ireland on Saturday night. I had been pestering the hubby to take me to see 'Sex and The City' so we thought on our way back from the airport we may as well go and stop at the movie theatre to see it. The hubby agreed to return the favor because I had agreed to go and see the new 'Indiana Jones' movie when it came out.
Well let me just say that movie was horrible. And I am not talking about 'Indiana Jones' here. Although that movie wasn't great either but at least I laughed a lot more and had a better time than I did watching the SATC movie.
The husband had a limit of one complaint per hour during the movie. It is kind of a filtering system and a deal between him and I. Mainly to prevent us from spoiling the movie for the other before the bitching comments get too much. During the three hours we sat through that movie he bitched about five times and held in a lot more nasty comments. Funny thing is: I could relate. I used to love the TV series. I watched it religiously plus I have all seasons on DVD. The girls were part of my tv schedule and I thought they rocked. Until I saw the movie.
I don't have any love for it. I really don't. It is as if they went and exaggerated every character and it made the movie so much worse. In the end we got out of the movie theatre and I felt I had a tinnitus from Charlotte's screaming. My left ear was basically deaf.
I didn't think anything of it. I am very prone to loud noises and carry earplugs with me when I deem it necessary. One of the reasons why I don't enjoy going to clubs or concerts but who'd have thought you'd go deaf from seeing a movie on a Saturday night?
Two days later it still felt like someone had pushed a cotton ball down my auditory canal while running a lawn mower in my ear at the same time. The whole thing only subsided late last night. Crazy, isn't it? Anyway, if you haven't seen it already (in which case I need to know what you thought) I wouldn't recommend you go and see it if you were a big fan of the series. You're bound to be disappointed.
