I love a good movie. It doesn’t have to be a syrupy sweet love story or even a comedy. I do like a movie with a good plot, good actors and good verbiage that is even worthy of being remembered and repeated. I like action movies, thrillers – if they aren’t too violent, and mysteries. True crimes and true stories are my favorites. That should tell you I’m not too picky, wouldn’t it.
My sister-in-the-Lord lives with me. We are both very active women with heavy schedules and rarely take time to sit down and watch a movie, except maybe for weekends. We have several channels or whatever you call them, that we can get movies through without paying. We don’t even mind paying for a movie, i.e., buying or renting it, if we deem it to be a good movie. The point being, when we do sit down to watch a movie we want to be able to enjoy it.
Last night was one of those nights. We had had a busy day and we were ready to put our feet up and relax. A movie seemed like a good idea. We went through the choices presented to us by the channels – programs – offered and we chose one called “Bad Moms” on Amazon for which we paid $3.99 to rent. It was billed as a ‘comedy’.
We gathered our tea, curled up in our respective places and prepared to watch the movie. We watched maybe ten minutes – yep! ten minutes – before we looked at each other and said, “I’m done.” Bad Moms had so much filth in the language, attitudes and even acting that we were both furious. Now mind you, we are not prudes. But we don’t think it is necessary to have filth in a movie – especially if you call it a comedy. Some things are just NOT funny!
We had seen trailers for apparently another ‘moms’ movie and I guess we confused that with this one. I’m not sure – but we turned it off and sat about reading books which were much more interesting and certainly not offensive. This morning my sister got her bill from Amazon for the movie with the curt little statement that no refunds would be made as once you start streaming it’s a done deal. Maybe Amazon should say if you’ve streamed past fifteen minutes, it’s a done deal. Or if the language is hideous, which it was, it’s a done deal – you are DONE and don’t want any more of it.
Thankfully, we have a great library at our house and are never at a loss for a good book. As to dirty movies, Hello Hollywood! Do you realize you’ve destroyed the innocence of America with your filth! I’m done – D O N E!
