  1. I haven’t seen any of these. I was thinking about seeing Due Date, though. I’m sorry to see it wasn’t really as funny as I was hoping.

  2. I have not watched any of the movies either. New In Town is the only that looks like something I would watch.

  3. I haven’t seen any of those, but my sister wants to see Due Date – I’ll have to tell her what you said.

  4. I loved Dystopia!!! It was a fun remake of Rear Window. New in Town…I’m a fan of Harry Connick’s singing but not acting. The Road…yes, depressing but makes one think. And haven’t seen the others. Great five word review!

  7. I thought Disturbia was good. But I think SHia is hot stuff and such a fantastic actor.

    I have no interest to see Due Date even with RObert Downy Jnr in it. I dislike all the movies that director has done, so I doubt I would enjoy this.

    New in Town sounds like my kinda movie. Might have to get it and watch it.

    By the way love your profile picture!

  10. I’m feeling seriously out of it. I haven’t seen one of these movies. The only one I want to see is the Rene Zellweger one. I just like to watch her.

  11. I was afraid of that about Due Date. We’re going to wait for DVD.
