Why have I never seen this movie before?  Where have I been?  Under a rock?  How did I miss “The Boat That Rocked“?  Great soundtrack (’60s Rock and Roll), amazing group of actors (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans, Chirs O’Dowd), exciting story, lots of fun!

When it was over, because it’s impossible to get too much Chris O’Dowd, I started watching “The IT Crowd” tv series in which he was one of the main stars.  And I actually laughed out loud.  A lot.

Either these shows are both excellent bits of entertainment or I’ve been living alone too long and Netflix has become my only friend.  Oh well.  Good times.

NOT a Disappointing Movie

I don’t want to talk about things that disappoint me. If I’m disappointed it’s my fault for having unrealistic expectations.

After hearing great things about it I expected the movie “Bridesmaids” to be a combination of “Monster-in-Law” and “Hangover” with some “Wedding Crashers” thrown in, but it was SO much better than that.  It had an actual storyline and a happy ending, and a wonderful mix of characters.  And Chris O’Dowd.  Really, what is it with that Irish accent that makes me not even CARE what he’s talking about.

But if I say more your expectations will soar through the roof and you’ll be disappointed for sure.  Just go see it expecting to laugh.  Because unless you’re deaf and blind I’m thinking that will probably happen.
