I am trying to branch out and try different types of movies I normally wouldn’t choose (read: anything with James McAvoy in it, repeatedly). So I stopped at the Redbox Friday and picked up “Nights In Rodanthe”. I really enjoy both Richard Gere and Diane Lane and a story about a newly separated mother finding love again. Well, how could I refuse. So what if it is from a Nicholas Sparks book?
So, movie FAIL. I really enjoyed it but I ended up sobbing on the couch at midnight. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think this was a stupid movie. It really did grab me and I thought it was a lovely redemption type movie for people trying to work through their past. I think that (for me at least) movies need to come with a rating system designed to let me know just how miserably crying I am going to be at the end. So in the tissue rating system, ummm, call this one a box.
I just wanted a happily ever after.
