The Help Movie Night

Since I received the movie The Help for Christmas, our book club decided to have a movie night in between meetings to watch it.  We had trouble finding a night that worked for everyone, but enjoyed the night with those that could make it.  You can’t go wrong if you have a ginormous bowl of Cinnabon Popcorn.

I agreed with those who said the movie stayed true to the book.  Obviously details were left out; thank goodness for that in the case of the crazy naked man!  Other details were simplified to fit in the time constraints of the movie.  The biggest variation is the way I pictured the characters and the actors who played them.  I expected Skeeter to be more homely and Hilly chubbier.

Also keeping with the book, the movie had more language than I’d like.  It’s not a movie for kids of all ages, but I’m glad I saw it.  I’d give it four slices.

Summer Bucket List

We’ve been brainstorming for the last couple of weeks, deciding what kind of fun activities we want to accomplish this summer.  I was surprised that our list had a slow start, but now it’s looking very healthy.
I made a pretty list and we’ll put a sticker by the ones we accomplish.  I probably should have done a little more research because one of our ideas was to go to an exhibit at the Center for Creative Photography at the U of A; but they are remodeling.  No exhibits until late August. 
What’s on your summer bucket list?
