blockbuster moment

So this weekend, my husband [N] rented 17 Again and as soon as I saw the DVD, I couldn't get this song out of my head.  That's not a bad thing, I happen to love this song along with a few other Annie Lenox/Eurythmics songs.  I find her voice amazing and emotional.  Back to the story...  This was an odd choice for N, he normally wouldn't touch this genre with a 10 foot pole.  In need of a mindless flick, I requested we watch this one first.  I have to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised.  Not a thinker by any stretch - but fun, mindless entertainment.  And I was finally convinced that Zac Efron is a hottie.  He's not really my type (he's too clean and pretty and admittedly far too young for me) but he's matured a bit.  Every high school needs a kid like the character he played - if only we knew then.....  N has called the flick stupid, but I think he just doesn't want to admit that he enjoyed it too - after all, I wasn't imagining all those chuckles.

I'm glad the weekend blogging drought is over.  

Happy Monday y'all!

I really enjoyed 17 Again too! Fully appreciate all that is Zac Efron now. And totally agree. I hope that whenever we have kids, if I should have a son, that he will be the same type of kid that Zac was in the movie.

Isn't it just like some men, never willing to admit they enjoy something that's outside of their norm? lol. I haven't seen the movie yet but you've peaked my interest.
