Yesterday was my birthday, so I took the day off of work and slept in (which I haven't been able to do in quite a while), then went on the Hammond's Candies factory tour!

In the evening, Beth and I went to the drive in! it's almost 100% certain that the Cinderella Twin Drive-In will be torn down this winter, so we figured we better go catch a late-season triple feature..

First up was Rush Hour 3. We were a little late for the beginning, but that was OK because this is the movie we cared least about. It's a pretty cookie-cutter, by-the-numbers American Jackie Chan movie.The presence of Chris Tucker and all the culture-clash comedy the name Rush Hour implies was there, but it was pretty weak tea.

Next was The Borune Ultimatum. We hadn't seen any of the previous Borune movies, but this one was easy enough to follow. A well made spy paranoia action thriller, more realistic than a Bond film but it's still an action movie not a rumination on the nature of spying like Syriana. It makes me want to see the earlier Bournes.

Finally was Knocked Up, which was the one we really came for, and it was worth waiting for. I don't know if anyone out there is really looking for me to review a movie that is just barely still in theaters, so I'll just say it made me laugh and I recommend it.

Well Happy Belated Birthday! :) I had no idea, my bad...oh wait, maybe I did know and wished you a happy one but I forgot? I don't know, hehehehe...
OOH a factory tour!!! Sounds super fun!!! :)That candy looks good...I don't like candy that much, but their candy looks like something I would like...:)
Aw that's sad they are tearing down the Drive-in...I wish Drive-ins would be around forever...I like them...:)
I thought "Rush Hour 3" was HYSTERICAL...I'm sad you didn't like it! :P I loved the nun part...heheheheh I am just so glad I had it at home so I could rewind it, I was laughing too loud, I missed some dialog...:)
I didn't see ANY of the Bourne movies, so I have not seen the newest one...Dan loves all those movies, me not so much.
"Knocked Up" was so funny, I just loved it...I watched it again the other night, I love having it so I can watch it over and over. If you haven't seen "Super Bad" you really need to!!!!! :)
