...Aren't you proud of me?!

We watched Australia last night after the kiddos went to bed. I was excited to see it ever since seeing the previews a while back. It had been heralded as this great epic film. The only thing epic about it was it's length. An hour into it I got on my computer so I had something to do. The movie was sssssllllloooooowwwww goings!

Here's my real-time commentary of the movie. I wrote this last night as I watched starting about an hour into it...

I seriously doubt they even went to Australia to film it. It looks like the whole thing was filmed on a back lot in LA. Some of the cheesiest FX and uses of green screen I've ever seen.

When that little boy "sings" to animals...TOTALLY CREEPY!!! I'm afraid that when we finish this movie the only thing we'll be saying is, "Now that is 2 hours and 45 minutes of our lives we'll never get back."

"The wrong side of business" = Horizantal mambo

1:14 into it...

A friend just told me that the second half gets better. I'm kinda thinking that a root canal would be better than this. At least at a root canal they give you happy gas. I could use some happy gas. And why must King George always be in tree pose?

Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman...not a believable couple. Wolverine and Tom Cruise's wife??? Just doesn't work for me.

And the random Japanese cook??? This movie does make me want to see the Wizard of Oz again though. I must admit.

If I was all dolled up and a patroness of a fundraiser...I wonder how much a dance with me would go for? You think I could raise $5?

Ok. Here we go. Mr. Jackman is clean cut and all dolled up too. Something tells me that the wrong side of business is in their future. Thanks to The Music Man we just skipped on through that part. But I tell you what! That Mr. Fletcher is a bad man. He gives me the creeps too.

All this talk of "creamy" makes me want ice cream. Mmmm...I want coffee mixed with cookie dough eaten with cinnamon graham crackers. Oh that is something I can enjoy. I lived on that while I was pregnant with the boy-wonder. It's a miracle I only gained 26 pounds. Shoot! I sho'nuff want me some ice cream now. I could go get it and be back before the movie was even over. I'm sure I wouldn't even miss anything.

Other things I could be doing right now instead of watching this movie...
  1. Reading a book.
  2. Eating ice cream...the aforementioned concoction, please.
  3. The wrong side of business with The Music Man.
  4. Painting my nails.
  5. Writing a more worthwhile post.
  6. Buying more shampoo.
  7. Folding clothes. Seriously. The basket's right in front of me.
  8. Playing computer games like this and this or even playing around with this. Can you say, "I heart MacHeist 3 Bundle"???
I was going to write 10 things I could be doing instead of watching this movie, but I'm too bored. Talking about those games makes me want to play them. I'm ending this commentary. My recommendation would be to read this and save yourself a few hours of time.


  1. Very funny stuff. This is my fav kind of post. I've been wanting to see this movie, though ....

  2. Here by way of 2nd cup of Coffee. Thanks for the heads up on that movie, I don't see myself renting that ever:)

  3. Glad to hear you're in on the 30 x 5 challenge. I am wogging for 30 minutes (my brand of fast walking alternated with jogging) and then when I get home
    I do sit-ups and push ups. I want to buy a great DVD for bad weather days if you have any suggestions!

    My favorite exercise is not so physical....
    There is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

  4. Thanks a million for taking the time to email me DVD recommendations. (And even Links!) I'm definitely going to order Leslie Sansone's 5 day slim down. I don't think I do Pilate's correctly. I have a Pilates DVD and it doesn't do much for me. I love personal recommendations - saves me money!

  5. I'm glad the email helped Beverlydru! You're like the 4th or 5h person to ask me for workout dvd recommendations in the past few weeks. Hmmm....maybe I should post a list of my faves!
