Alison says...GO SEE THIS MOVIE!



Here at BellaFrench, I do not endorse many things over my own narcissism. As you will find that many of the blogs are about me and mine and how awesome or unawesome, but most of the time awesome, my life is. I am strongly against the blog turning into an adverblogitorial, that is a word I just made up but means that I don't want my blog to turn into a vehicle that touts products, movies, clothing, etc in return for advertising dollars. HAHAHAHA, like that would ever happen. I have completely climbed off on a tangent and am now heading back to the main point.

Last Tuesday night Aaron and I went on a date because lately we are two ships passing in the night. We went to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant and then to our favorite indie theater and randomly decided to see "The Waitress" with everyone's favorite, the beautiful Keri Russell from Felicity fame. Little did I know just how great that movie would be. I'm about to make up another word and call it a dralomedy (drama, love, comedy). The movie's plot is about a woman who is in an oppressive marriage and is planning to leave her dick of a husband (sorry, mom) until she finds out that she is pregnant, thus thwarting her plan. She is famous in her small town for coming up with a different recipe for pie everyday and after she finds out she is a pregnant a lot of the pies have names like "Pregnant, miserable, self-pitying, loser pie." Pretty hilarious if you ask me. The theme of the movie is women empowerment and making sure you get what you deserve out of life, not what someone else thinks you deserve, mix in a love affair and you get the dralomedy. It was done in such a way that it was hilarious and incredibly moving at the same time. Aaron loved it and I have a feeling that I'm going to be getting "The Waitress" dvd for my birthday or Christmas or something. (Hint, hint)

Check your local theater listings and go see the movie!!!!!

xoxo,
Alison

Alison, I saw this movie when it first came out and agree that it's definitely DVD worthy. I can't wait for it to come out! One of those movies that surprised me with how great it really is.

"Damn crib. Damn baby."

Drew said...

lol. sometimes the comments are funnier than the blogs. Who is the anonymous donkey-pie lover??

BellaFrench said...

i have no idea who loves the donkey pie? is that a crude sexual reference?

WTF?? I come back from bloglessness and find this madness!

Drew said...

NO! I was not saying that your blog was bad. I only meant that the comments enhance the humor because its fun to see the random details everyone else picks up on. No hatin' intended...
