Squeakquel Sacrifice

FamilyMy son's birthday party is this afternoon, and he's asked that he and his friends see Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.

I sat him down and tried to talk him out of it. I showed him the 21% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes, I explained to him the several other options at his disposal and I recommended a couple of alternative films that he might prefer.

He wants the Squeakquel, so he's getting the Squeakquel. Pray for me.

Mike, I have to thank you for putting a smile on my face. This post brings back memories of my son's birthday movie requests. I slept through some real doozies over the years. Enjoy your afternoon and again, thank you for sharing your wonderful stories with us. They're just great.

I liked it. It's one of those "Turn your brain off and leave it at the door" movies. I highly recommend it.

Plus, professional critics don't pay to see movies - they GET PAID to see them, and therefore don't have the same investment in them that we do.
