Avengers Review and Giveaway Winner


It's always a fun time when you get to go out and have a date with your spouse.  It's something we try to do at least a few times a month.  This past Tuesday we were able to have a dinner and movie date.  My husband worked late that night so it was more a quick drive through Chick Fil A and eating in the car on the way to the movie theater after we dropped off our girls at my parents house.  It's funny how it doesn't really matter if it's a fancy meal at a nice restraunt.  As long as we're together and can talk like adults without a million little questions from little high pitched voices the entire time. Not that we don't love that, but believe me.  A couple needs to get out and go on a date every now and then!
Once we got to the theater we were there a little early so walked across the street and walked around the little mini mall.  Nothing too exciting there, so back to the the theater where we had to stop and get popcorn, a drink and some red vines.  I think all of those things taste better at the movie theater than they do anywhere else.  That's probably why I always leave a movie with a stomach ache. Ha!

I must say that after watching some of the previews I was excited to watch this movie.  I did only watch Iron Man and Thor and maybe 30 minutes of Captain America so I was familiar with some of the story lines and characters. Let me just say right from the begininng that this movie was fantastic!  I did get a little bored in the middle of the movie because I felt like it was dragging out the story a little bit and wanted it to pick up and get some action in it.
The story line was interesting, the characters were great, the action was awesome and it was actually quite funny.  I knew that Iron Man was funny but pleasantly surprised on how much I liked the Hulk!
There were several kids in the theater with us that night and they were all super impressed with the Hulk and he got some cheers and lots of laughter.  I also was happy that this movie was a "CLEAN" movie which makes it even better in my book.  This will most likely be a movie that we will purchase when it comes on DVD, and that's a lot ot say when we have a house full of girls!

Two thumbs up from us!

When we first saw the preview for Marvel's The Avengers, I had no idea what it was about but my dear hubby on the other hand was so excited and like a giddy little boy on Christmas morning. So when I found out that we will get to host a giveaway, he asked "Can I win it?". It's so funny, seeing men so excited about a movie.

Chimpanzee Screening

One of our favorite family activites is to go the theater and watch a movie.  Butter popcorn, a cold soda, huge screen and surround sound is just the greatest.  When we got tickets to an early screening of Chimpanzee we were so excited.  We saw the previews a few months ago and I quickly made a mental note that it was one that we had to see as a family.  We finally got to go and see it last night.  Not quite a whole family since my hubby had a church activity with our youth, but we made it a girls night out with myself, the girls and my Mom or Nanny to my girls.

A quick bite to eat at Mc Donalds while we waited for our show to start and then of course we had to get popcorn and drinks.  Finally, the movie was about to begin!

Let me just say if you have not seen the previews of Chimpanzee and have no idea what I am talking about. Be sure to watch the trailer here.


The movie comes to theaters on April 20th!  All I can say is BE SURE TO GO!  You will LOVE it!
My girls and even myself fell in love with little Oscar.  The movie is a ture Life Adventure that introduces Oscar, a young chimpanzee whose playful curiosity and zest for discovery light up the African forest until a twist of fate leaves Oscar to fend for himself with a little help from an unexpected ally.

It was funny and beautiful and such a great exprience.  Be sure to take your whole family this Earth Day. I guarantee you will also fall in love with these Chimps!

 Disneynature joined forces with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) for a special “See ‘Chimpanzee,’ Save Chimpanzees” program. For every moviegoer who sees “Chimpanzee” during the film’s opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to JGI through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund in order to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.

So be sure to head over to a theater near you this weekend and watch Disney's Chimpanzee!  To get you excited this week, here's an activity book for your kiddos that you can print off.



 
We definitley give this movie 2 thumbs up.  We laughed and cried and laughed some more!
