We enjoyed a couple of movies this weekend:
- Ken and I watched The Lincoln Lawyer Saturday night - first time in a long time we've had a chance to watch a movie on our own! We are both big fans of author Michael Connelly, so it's no surprise we enjoyed this movie based on his legal thriller. Matthew McConaughey stars as a lawyer with a reputation for representing (and often freeing) low-life clients. Then he lands a wealthy young man, played by Ryan Phillipe, accused of rape and assault and thinks he stands to make a lot of money in the case. But things aren't as they seem, and he gets pulled further and further into a tangled mess. Great suspense with lots of twists and turns. Marisa Tomei stars as his ex-wife.
- When I saw Johnny English, starring Rowan Atkinson, on the library shelf, I knew the kids would love it. I was right - all the kids, including Ken!, laughed hysterically at this British slapstick comedy about a James Bond wannabe. It's basically a British version of The Pink Panther and Inspector Clousseau. Not exactly my kind of thing but good for some laughs!
