May’s 5 Word Movie Reviews & Money for Charity

Once a month I feature the movies I’ve seen for the first time with a 5 word ‘review’.  Only it’s not really a review.  For that I need your help.  I hope that you’ll add your 5 words to my 5 words and that someone else will add their 5 words and so on until we have a a fun hodgepodge of words that make up a ‘review’.

You may notice that we saw a movie at the theater this month.  Can you tell which one of us won the March Madness bracket and gets to pick the next five theater movies? 🙂

This month you can give money to charity by contributing your 5 words (Details here).  Please join the fun :)  Past 5 Word Reviews here.  We’re up to $66.

  1. I was planning to watch Knight and Day, but looking at your grade, I’ve changed my mind 😀
    I’ve watched Bridesmaids and The Fighter; and enjoyed both of them.

    • Do not waste your time on Knight & Day! I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to feel this way.

  2. I haven’t been to see a movie at the theater in a while – my friend and I have had trouble connecting. We hope to see Bridesmaids before it leaves the theater though.

    Here’s 5 words for The Fighter: Creative use of the f-word. (I liked the movie a lot, but boy, could those people cuss!)

    • LOL about The Fighter! They did use it every which way didn’t they? And I couldn’t get enough of those sisters!

  3. The only one I’ve seen of this group is Knight and Day. Wasn’t excited about it. Let’s see what I can come up with:

    No chemistry between leads…None.

    • Glad I wasn’t the only one not impressed.

  4. I agree with the three I have seen; Coach Carter, Day & Knight, and The Fighter.

    The fighter was a fascinating story with great acting but a bit depressing.

    Coach Carter I remember being a good movie that Samual L Jackson could act and not drop the f bomb every 5 seconds.

    Day and Knight was a waste. Tom Cruise trying to recapture his glory days and show he isnt crazy. But he just came across as creepy and the script was weak at best. Bleah

    I would like to see Bridesmaids though. Sounds fun.

  5. I’m guessing you won! I’ve heard Bridesmaids is awesome!!! I hope to see it soon. And I’ll stay away from Night and Day!

    • Why, yes, I did win! Bring on the chick flicks. Sometimes we see them even if I don’t want to just to relish my win through the summer 🙂

  6. The Fighter: Touching, f-ing story. Bale rocks!

    Day & Knight: Cruise is creepy. No chemistry.

    I haven’t seen the others, but I really want to see Bridesmaids. Here it’s a riot!

    • I love Bale too and will watch anything he’s in (although I haven’t yet).
