Tuesday Review: We’re the Millers

I apologise for this being so late.  This week is crazy for me, and the chances of me getting any more posts done this week will be slim.  Today was my friend Alice’s birthday party, so five Kiwanian hard-working women spent 1 hour and 40 minutes plus preview time at the theatre.

Movie goers give it an 81% while critics hover around 50%.  On this one I might have to side with the critics.  I did laugh a bit.  However, while it is very funny in places, it is pretty vulgar for the run of the mill woman over the age of 45.  When the 18-year-old son, Will Poulter, gets stung by a spider, they show a close up of his genitals (or what look like genitals) swollen to the size of a two baseballs and a bat.  It may not be as bad as seeing someone’s face shot off, like my husband watched in the movie he saw, but it is not something Ms. Movie Goers really needed to see.

I actually finished two books since last Tuesday, Thirty-Two Going on Spinster, and The Sea and the Silence.  I’m going to participate in a Book Tour with Celestial Book Divas Promotions in September, so I have to hold off on Thirty-Two Going on Spinster.  I have to say that I actually laughed out loud as I read that one.  No vulgarity, profanity, or sleeze, but still managed to be hilarious.  How can that be, comedians?

I thoroughly enjoyed The Sea and the Silence, too, but Amazon repossessed it.  I borrowed it, and they don’t usually take them back, but my Prime account came due, and immediately – poof the book was back in the Amazon library, whisper jet fast.  So I will have to borrow it now that I purchased Amazon Prime Property once again.

I have not finished the Sandra Day O’Connor book, The Majesty of the Law:  Reflections of a Supreme Court.  Maybe I’ll have more time next week to read and write.

It is now 10:17 p.m.  My eyelids are slipping down to rest on my feet, so I’ll sign off for tonight.

either.

  1. Ah I rarely go the cinema – I see no earthly attraction in most of the garbage that masquerades as a movie these days. I especially detest on-screen violence. Most of my favourite fims are in black and white although I do like Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I may allow myself to be dragged along to the odd funny film occasionally but not in the last 2 years. I thnk I shall give the Millers a miss 😦

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
