Recent movie views.

I've said before that I'm not really a movie watcher, but sometimes Jon and I will start a movie during dinner and I will actually end up watching the whole thing. Here are a few we watched this week.

Cedar Rapids

This movie stars Ed Helms, John C. Reilly and Anne Heche. Sigourny Weaver also has a smaller role at the beginning of the movie. Basically, this guy (Ed Helms) goes to this insurance conference in Cedar Rapids and meets a group of people who teach him how to have a little fun. He's this super safe guy who has been pretty sheltered his whole life and he learns to stand up for himself along the way. It's funny too! I would recommend it if you are looking for a no-brainer comedy with a little drama mixed in.

Just Go With It

I loved this movie. As you can see, it stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Adam's character is a plastic surgeon and Jennifer's character is his assistant. I think most people know the premise of this movie, but I'll elaborate a little. He picks up girls by wearing a fake wedding ring, until one girl comes along who is disgusted that he is married and doesn't want anything to do with him. He explains that he is getting divorced and drags Jennifer's character (and subsequently her kids) into by asking her to be his pretend almost ex-wife. It's a surprisingly really funny movie too. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic comedy that her husband will like too!


This movie came out in 2001 so it is older, but this is my first time seeing it. A group of guys makes a bet to be the last remaining bachelor. They all put money into a pot each year and the last guy standing wins the money. Jerry O'Connell's character runs into a bit of gambling trouble and needs money immediately, so he forms a plan to get his friend (the only other guy left standing) married quickly so he can win the money. I thought the premise of this money was a bit ridiculous at first, but the movie grew on me and I ended up liking it.

What movies have you watched lately?
