A Sequel I Can't Wait To See!

There aren't a lot of movies that I think are good enough to rate a sequel. I'm kinda picky that way. I mean, there are the classics like the Indiana Jones movies. And I can't forget the National Treasure movies, but really, I can't think of many other movies that I loved enough to watch in continuing installments. And let's be honest. We're talking Harrison Ford and Nicolas Cage. 'Nuff said.

But the buzz here at The Gang's house has been all about the upcoming Night at the Museum sequel. Each of us has our own reason for loving the original, but each of us is equally agreed that this is the summer's "must see" movie for The Gang. We don't go to the theater often as a family. I think the last movie we all saw together in the theater was Charlotte's Web, back in 2006. Really. Sad, I know. We're just too choosey. And too cheap. Yes, I said it. We're cheap. Frugal. Miserly. Whatever.

This is one movie that might actually get us to the local theater for an afternoon of giggles and guffaws together. Notice I said afternoon. Yeah, taking 7 folks to the movie theater these days just about equals a car payment. So I'm cheap. I've already acknowledged that. Whatever.

Especially if we win this give-away.
I might even chip in for popcorn!

I didn't know there was a sequel coming for this movie. Glad you told us. I really liked the first one and would like to see this one too.

Well good morning - playing catch up! First - a belated Happy Birthday to the girl - 10 years - wow (and a great post and prayer too!)

And as for movies that demand a sequel - or maybe prequel - All of the Star Trek's - even the TV programs (with maybe the exception of the Deep Space 9 spinoff - it was pretty lame!)

Ah well - just great to see life being lived!

hugs - aus and co.

Hello there,

One option that JJJ and I try to do in the summer is go to the drive-in. Yes its cheaper, you can bring your own snacks and the kids can fall asleep in car if the are tired. Plus what we love is that you get two current movies.

I so want to see that movie too. I think I might have to be your competition for the giveaways. Good Luck.


Hey don't feel bad about being cheap. We do not go to the movies. I have not had a paycheck for 5 weeks. Talking about being creative. I sure have been. I would love to go to a movie or just get out. If I stay in, then I do not spend money.

We cannot wait to see this movie also. We enjoyed the first one quite a bit. My kids still say, "Hey dumb dumb, you give me gum gum!"

And I am with you, anything with Harrison Ford is worth seeing!
