David took his excited family to the movies tonight. It's very rare that we take the kids out to the movies instead of watching a netflix DVD at home. I am leery of all the scary or otherwise yuckily inappropriate posters and previews at the theatre, never mind the price, lack of cleanliness, or inconvenience of specific time and place. But tonight was a great experience. I'm so glad we went.
My cell phone rang as the kids and I were arriving at the library for chess games around 3:45pm. We had been out of the house since 11am, at gymnastics class, oral report session at a different library, and homeschool park day. My husband suggested we make the evening fun by going out as a family - to see The Incredibles. I'm not usually a fan of Disney stuff, but I like Pixar, and this was one great movie. Our whole family liked it. I laughed out loud several times and got slightly choked up, was surprised and tickled and am ready for the next one to come out. Maybe I'm a little early on that since tonight was opening night for this installment. The best thing about this movie was the same great thing about True Lies. In fact, come to think of it, this was an animated True Lies with cool kids added. The husband and wife love each other and get to do cool stuff together, and are romantic together. The kids also get to be a part of the team, and marriage and good relationships are (for the most part) honored. Everybody needs each other, and people use their talents for good. Way to go, Pixar!

Wow, that's quite a review! I thought you should know - I watched "True Lies" for the first time last week. It was on TV, and I tuned in solely because of your previous recommendation of it. I loved it, and have now added it to my wish list at Amazon. Can't wait to check out The Incredibles, too.

Glad you liked it, Kristen! I haven't seen it in quite a while, but at least seven scenes are still firmly implanted in my mind!
