Friday nite I drove 40 minutes to the Beverly Center movie theatre (nobody was in the whole place) and met my sister to see Step Up 2. GO SEE THIS MOVIE. We loved it. Like love love I want to go dance on my table love it. Like you forget you are a dorky mom for a second and want to go compete against the 410. Word.
As a fan of Step Up 1 I was skeptical about the sequel especially without the original cast, but it was fabulously funny. Very clean except for minor cussing. Do not be misled by the horrible poster (this is not it) and bad marketing. Cause I still want to know if Andi made up with Tuck and was he really just mad because he wanted to date her? I so am buying this to put next to my Step Up 1 dvd.
We had so much fun and were cracking up. I can ignore a little cheesiness and plot issues when you have great music and amazing dancing. Plus, I just love movies and don't always want to watch something heavy. Step Up 2 is delightful movie candy which I fully endorse.
I am even debating going to see it again for my birthday this week.
Thomas the Magic Railroad is the worst movie I have ever seen. I have had to suffer through it at my house and in my car a dozen times. I hate this movie. I want to kill it. like punch the director stupid. I know everyone needs a paycheck once in a while, but where is the self-respect? Why Alec Baldwin did you do this? And little Matilda girl, you were so good and now its sooo so bad.
I sometimes enjoy reliving my childhood and watching the kids movies of my crazy children (peter pan, mary poppins) , but this is insulting. And my children love it? How do they follow the 15 subplots and totally pointless dialogue. Why can't I talk you out of this? And why haven't I just tossed it in the trash? I really don't care if you find the lost engine or if Mr. Conductor gets more magic stupid dust. Boo.
