Away We Go June 18, 2009Posted by smooregasbord in Around Town, TV/Movies.
One of my girlfriends got several passes to go see the movie Away We Go, so we had a little girls’ night out. I read several reviews in Us Weekly and People that had only given it 2 stars. Opinions vary, so last week we all headed to the theater to see if this movie was all it was cracked up to be…or not.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I give it a 5 all the way. It was a complete laugh riot! So much so that half way through the film I leaned over to Nicole and said, “No more laughing, my face is starting to hurt!” They couldn’t have picked a better cast. While the scene with Allison Janney’s character (Lily) provided for belly-aching laughter, the scene where they have dinner with Maggie Gyllenhaal’s character (LN) was by far the most hilarious in the entire movie! If you’re looking for a great date night movie, I highly suggest this flick…it’s equally funny for both guys and gals.
Note: If you’re at all Prudence McPrude like myself, then the opening scene will have you covering your eyes and blushing like a twelve year old girl. Just a warning.
