This past weekend a long awaited movie came out. From the moment I saw my first preview, I was in love. It looked so charming and cute. An all star cast with some of my favorite actresses, it was a must see.
After much convincing on my part I got Clayton to take me to "He's just not that into you" this past Friday night. Well a BIG thank you goes out to the Directors/Producers/Writers you have now made me BANNED by Clayton from picking the movies.
I honestly was in awe at how far off based this movie was. It taught that marriage and the uplifting and honoring of that union was not important, that men can lie, sleep and serenade their way out of adultery, and that women like to be domineered and left helpless. This movie fell incredibly short. I was extremely disappointed. It taught to question your marriage, to find that person who is "hot" at the time; needless of the vows and promises behind your marriage.
The only redeeming quality and relationship I found in the movie was the ending. I was able to smile and I did feel content that the flick did end happily. However the two hours previous was something I would never inflict upon any couple.
Going to this film did help me realize how wonderful of a life I really do have. I am so grateful that I never had to struggle with many of the same problems that these women had to deal with. I am so happy, Clayton is incredible and I truly am blessed.
So "Am I the exception or the rule?" I am definitely the exception.
Count me in!
