The Women: Have You Seen It?

There are a series of movies I tend to watch again and again and drive my family crazy over them.  I tend to watch a couple of different genres.  One are the movies about Europe or England specifically that deals with the wars or the royal families.  Of course now that I think of it, they are tied hand in hand usually.  I loved Braveheart and other movies like Elizabeth and The Other Boleyn Girl with Natalie Portman.  The other types involve romance/humor tied in with strong women.

The Women The Other Boleyn Girl

I just watched The Women with Meg Ryan, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing and Annette Benning and love it.  I love it because it empowers a middle aged woman to be who she was meant to be.  It tells the story of what so many women endured of giving up their dreams for another dream.  Having a family is a wonderful dream and some women manage to juggle both while others tend to the family dream only.  The movie delivers a good message in that it is a reminder that you can live your other side outside of roles of mother and wife.  It shows younger women to pursue your dreams while reinforcing to us older women it's never too late.  I also liked Annette Benning's character which reminded me that I also like Samantha's character from Sex and the City.  

Other movies I enjoy are The Upside of Anger with Joan Allen and Kevin Costner, Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and an adorable Robert Redford and Becoming Jane with Anne Hathaway.  All women who struggled not only with life but with love.  Wonder if there is some hidden psychological thing going on?  Have you seen P.S. I Love You with Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank?  A real tear jerker but I love it!


The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler

I think utilizing "ugly" with Gerard Butler should be a sin but I suppose based on how his personality is in the movie sums it up along with the ever confusing history of men and women.  I watched this movie last night with my oldest who is 21 so perfectly of age to watch a movie of this level.  There was no nudity other than a brief shot of the backside of a man so it almost proves that a movie can be good without nudity or moment by moment sex scene.  They could have even done without the backside shot as you got the gist of that scene. 

It's a great girl's night movie but forewarning they touch on some edges of raunchiness pending on what your view points are.  I think some scenes were funny possibly due to being embarrassed of the subject matter in front of my daughter and the sheer unexpectedness of what was said.  It's predictable but funny and Katherine Heigl did a great job as well.

All in all, it has Gerard Butler so I enjoyed it.  I loved him in P.S. I Love You and 300.  If you need one of those funny movies to lighten your mood or someone to dream about, catch this one.
