Time Traveling

After a long, exhausting couple of days with sick kiddos it was time for a break. The kids are still sick, so that break will be short lived, but I needed some time to relax with Hubby so we sat down tonight on his night off and watched The Time Traveler's Wife.

I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't give plot specifics, but I will say-bring tissues. Also, if you're in the mood for a good cheering up, look elsewhere. May I recommend Milo and Otis or Pride and Prejudice-they always cheers me up.

The movie itself is good. The actors did a good job making the characters very sympathetic, and the story was very interesting. It was worth watching, but one last note-don't tell your husband that it's part sci-fi to get him into it.

While I'm sure that the book has more of the science information in it, the movie had pretty much none. Luckily Hubby still liked it...but he also liked Fried Green Tomatoes and actually shed some tears during The Notebook so, you know-results not typical, actual results may vary from husband to husband.

You're lucky, if there isn't guns and explosions my husband won't watch it... period.

I on the other hand would probably enjoy it.. thanks

I read the book and I loved it. I shed a few tears, but not as bad as when I watched the movie. I was kind of afraid to watch it. The old saying a book is always better than the movie. This time I was very pleased with how well they kept to the storyline of the book. You definitely need tissue.
