"It's a Wonderful Life"

Well... We were all ready to watch. Sam was sleeping, we set up a nice spot on the living room floor with a great bottle of wine and some really good snacks... As soon as the movie started Scott said "What the hell are we watching, a black and white movie???" So I said "Come on honey I heard it is a great movie, just give it a chance, pleaseeee." So we got into about an hour of it and I have to say it was really painful, LOL... It must be me, I must be totally corrupted by modern cinematography. All I heard was wah wah wah wah wah... I couldn't stand it. Maybe if the movie was redone starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts or something it would be easier to get into. I couldn't understand a word they were saying. The actors spoke so quickly, scenes were jumping all over the place. Scott and I couldn't really follow it at all. I know its what most would expect of me, I am known to be a little slow on the uptake at times. But Scott is actually quite brilliant and even he had a hard time following. Well, we ended up changing the channel and watching my most favorite Christmas movie, "A Christmas Story." I am going to give "It's a Wonderful Life" another try and rent it so we don't have to deal with the commercials. But thanks anyway for the recommendations...

I was going to tell you it wasn't worth it, but its seemed like I was in the minority so for once I kept my mouth shut. That was funny though, Scott is brilliant. Good stuff, thanks.

Good luck next time! It's definitely better without the commercials.

OK...so lame! It's a classic people. Like "The Sound of Music" or "The Wizard of Oz." What, were you raised in a barn? I think you need to come over and get some TCM pumped into those "American Pie" brains of yours.
