So, I'm at church again for the first time in months. Not sure how it's going to go. Came to a location that is similar in size (number of members) to White's Chapel, but already it doesn't feel like WC. I'm reminding myself over and over and over again that you can't judge a book by its cover. I don't know, though.

Well, it's official. I heard today that Utah, my state of origin, is officially the fastest growing state in population in the United States. It's population grew 2.5% between July of '07 and July of '08. Nevada, the state that grew the most last year, was only at 1.8% this year.
~ Mel's Movie of The Week ~
This is one of those amazing romantic comedies that isn't so heavy that you can't get some fun out of it, but it also isn't so light that you have felt you wasted two hours of your life (or in my case, many many more!!).
First off - I know everyone hates Jude Law, because he's all annoying and stuff, but man, those eyes. And then, when he puts on the glasses, well, I could honestly care less about his real-life personality! One of the most touching scenes in this movie is when he is trying to explain how hard it is for him to find a life outside being a single parent, and not be totally unfair to those he meets or, most importantly, his children.
My other favorite in this movie is Jack Black. Before I saw the film I had some serious doubts. I mean, seriously, could the master of The Pick of Destiny really pull off a role like this, without it becoming a total farce?? The answer is a resounding YES. Thankfully, though, we still get some great "classic Jack" in the Blockbuster scene, with him enthusiasticaly singing theme songs from movie classics to a quite embarrassed Kate Winslet.
All in all, I could watch this movie over and over and over again, each time wishing that I had the movie guy in my head narrating my life too, so I could have some clue as to what I should do next!
Rent it now, because you won't be sorry, and enjoy!!
