We got this on DVD for Christmas. I had thought it looked dubious in the movies… and we didn’t finish it tonight. We got about 2/3 of the way through and then gave up. It’s just silly. And not particularly funny, nor original. The best thing was the sidekick – he was good.
Seriously, girls wear stupid shoes for stupid reasons. Like weddings. it was a great wedding, I had a lot of fun – the reception was at Fed Square, and it was brilliant – but the shoes took the shine off. I just should have worn flats and been comfortable.
The friends who got married didn’t realise until last week that it’s Moomba at the moment. As a consequence, we got fireworks at 9.30. It was very exciting – and what was funnier was that there was a speech happening as they started, but he wrapped it up pretty much immediately so that everyone could go out on the balcony and watch the pretty lights. Not just the few kids who were there, but the few 20- and 50-somethings, and lots of 30- and 40-somethings too. All standing around looking at lights in the sky. Brilliant.
