Movie Night

This week's movie was Facing the Giants. DH saw a news clip about this movie and thought maybe we'd like it; I placed a hold on it through the library. It'd been so long that I'd forgotten about it until last week when it arrived. It's rated PG for thematic elements. No mild peril or crude humor like most other PG movies we've seen. So we saved it for last night's movie night. What a movie! We all sat watching, riveted by what would come next. I'm not going to give details, but I will share a couple of observations which prove just how good the movie is.

#1 - It's so good that when your sister puts her head on your floor pillow, the one you got for yourself from the corner, you don't even realize you're sharing because you are so engrossed in the movie. It's so good that when your other sister takes half your blanket, you don't even realize your legs are uncovered and you're cold until the movie's over.

#2 - It's so good that I cried, clapped and sat on the edge of my seat during the last quarter of the football, yes, staged football, game. I'm not a big football fan and have never considered crying over a win or loss of any football game, much less a small town highschool football team in a movie.

Now go rent this movie; you won't be disappointed.
