The Town

The Town is a rarity - a movie that lives up to the hype. It is a wild ride and more than once I felt a little weird rooting so hard for the bad guy. Ben Affleck is great and even better, I didn't spend most of the movie thinking "hey, that's Ben Affleck". Maybe the cast of creepy bad guys surrounding Doug (Ben) that make it easier to root for him.

Not giving any more away - go see the movie. It's work the (gulp) $10.

Husband & I had a date-day...wanted to see a movie and upon your rec, I picked this (only non-animated, non-girlie one I thought we could both stand!) And you were was so good! I was nervous about the ending, but was not disappointed. Thanks!

I'm really glad you liked it, Sheri! I would have felt personally responsible if you hadn't. :)

Ha! :) After months of previews that did not entice me, I am next looking forward to RED...hope that it lives up to its hype~and its cast!
