Becoming Jane

So T and I had brunch this morning -- vanilla buttermilk pancakes for her, lemon ricotta pancakes with strawberries for me. We both admired the banana cream cheese stuffed French toast from a distance, but feared it would be too filling. I think it's the cream cheese that scared us off...the final touch of decadence.

We saw Becoming Jane which was just so good...much better than I was expecting, and more interesting than the poster implied. It was so engaging and charming. At the end though, I was crying, and I looked over at T and saw that her eyes were wet too. We had to stay in the theater for a while!

When we did leave, we passed a poster for Shoot 'em Up (ugh, what a title) in which Clive Owen plays a British nanny. Should be interesting.

I'm so glad you liked the movie! Maybe I'll go sneak a matinee sometime this week while the hubby is at work :)

I also meant to add that I saw that same preview, and my husband said he was waiting for Vin Diesel to show up (The Pacifier).

The preview for Shoot 'em Up? That's funny. I just saw the poster.

I think Becoming Jane would be the perfect matinee movie :) I saw Waitress as a matinee show.

The banana cream cheese stuffed french toast sounds so good! I understand why you didn't order it, but it does sound decadent.

We're watching that movie soon. My husband has a big crush on Anne Hathaway. ;p
