Dave and I love going to the movies. We go at least once a month and would go much more often if it wasn’t so expensive. Kora & Logan enjoy the movies but not quite as much as we do yet.

They sometimes find sitting in a theater seat for the duration of a movie a little tough and at this age prefer to watch movies from the comfort of our couch at home. Which makes us all happy because not only is it a money saver but it’s a great way to spend time together.
Did you know when you visit Walmart Moviecenter you can watch trailers and exclusive videos? Sometimes watching trailers is my favorite part of the movie! I’ve said to Dave that I could honestly sit through an entire “movie” of trailers. I know it’s a little crazy but they always do such a great job with them that I find myself on the edge of my seat wondering what’s going to happen next.
Speaking of trailers, one that I stopped what I was doing to watch every time it was on was Silver Linings Playbook.
Bradley Cooper plays Pat Solatano who has moved back in with his parents after spending 8 months in a state institution on a plea bargain.
He’s lost everything but is determined to rebuild his life and reconnect with his wife. His parents want him to get back on his feet. He runs into Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence, who is a bit mysterious and has problems of her own.
I’m looking forward to watching this movie soon, it will be a great night in for Dave and I where we won’t have to fight the crowds or pay outrageous ticket prices. While writing this post, I was interested to learn a bit of movie trivia as well:
