The Bounty Hunter . . .

The last few weeks have been SOOO full of chaos and adventure and drama that I don't know where to start back into the world of blogging . . . I've decided to move forward . . . today, I was supposed to have an appointment with Dr. McBride at the Everett Clinic. In the past, he has had a loooong wait period but totally worth it because once you got to see him, he'd answer every question you had and then some. Today, my good friend Carrie came with me (ok - drive me because I'm on to many drugs) and we went to the check in desk. They had no record what so ever of an appointment. I explained to them that we'd driven all the way to Arlington and I'd just gotten out of the hospital - I told them that this appointment was very important to me . . . to no avail . . . no appointment but I was welcome to come back on Friday morning if I was interested . . . of course I was interested as I was expecting to see him now. I asked for a complaint card I could fill out and send in as I was very disappointed with the care I didn't receive and attitude with which I didn't receive it and we left. My frustrated meter was at a 8 out of 10 and one of my doctors orders was to keep the stress level low . . .

We were faced with a myriad of choices - we could go shopping (always fun) or go home and be grumpy (didn't seem very productive) or go see a movie . . . we chose the movie as we both could use the distraction and laughter. We had no idea which movie we might see but were determined to find something.

The young girl at the counter (when asked between The Bounty Hunter and The Last Song) said we should go to the Bounty Hunter as it was funnier and a good time . . . we needed funny so away we purchased our tickets and popcorn.

I don't want to be a spoiler in case you haven't seen it and plan to but know it's a combo of Jennifer Aniston, golf carts, police officers, fun dance songs, Gerard Butler, laughing, and great lines . . . my favorite of which was said by Jennifer's character,"Life is about making mistakes; death is about wishing you'd make some more."
Some of it was predictable but definitely had enough manliness to make a good date move - not chicky . . . .
Out of 5 stars, I'd give it a 4 - I'd even see it again in the theater before it left - a fun time . . .and definitely adult (not for the under 16/18 in my opinion as it had some adult language, a bit of violence, and some language - none to offensive for the adult viewer but that's just my opinion.)

  1. Missing you Karla! And sending prayers and hugs for smooth, peaceful days ahead. I'm glad you got to a movie. It's probably what you needed most of all. Distraction. Down time. Girl time. It's all good.



I love to hear from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
