“The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.”
This summer we have splurged and taken the kids to the real movies twice.
They were the matinee shows, but still a whole lot more expensive than our usual outing to the dollar show.
About a month ago we went and saw KungFu Panda.
And a couple of weeks ago we enjoyed every minute of Wall E.
They were both good, but Wall-E was our favorite.
If you’ve seen Wall-E, you will know what I am talking about when I say:
“It is plainly coincidental that I took the previous photo of
our HUGE drink two seconds before the show started.”
Here is the garbage can on the way out.
The theatre teenage workers were very amused that I was taking a picture of their pain.
It looks like I am not the only one who believes that if you splurge on $40 worth of movie tickets, you may as well round it off with an extra $20 for a large popcorn and drink that can be shared and refilled.
I know you will all think I am horrible when I tell you that I smuggle in the candy.
The real question is, ” Who is going to get up during the middle of the movie and fetch the refill?
That would usually be me. Isn’t that’s what mom’s are for?
Moms are also really good at making sure that their kids notice the cool new Dyson hand dryer in the bathroom.
After all that soda, we barely made it through the movie.
Alfred Hitchcock was from a different era of movie watching.
He and his little bladder were WAY before Supersize.
I really think that we should start a mother revolution and request that all family friendly movies implement a mid-movie potty/refill intermission.
And, with all those super sizes,
it’s no wonder that all Americans can relate to movies like Wall-E and KungFu Panda.
It’s a good thing we had the opportunity to work off the calories in the movie lobby on the way out.
