two words....the help!!!

have you been out to the theatre to see the help?

 it was an  phenomenal movie! i highly recommend seeing it!

i went last night and the theatre was packed! i got there early b/c i wanted a good seat! so many people were walking out of the theatre with tears in their eyes! guess the ending was a real tear jerkier! i wouldn't know! i'll be honest with you i missed the last 15 mins. or so of the movie, thanks to my husband to who remains in the dog house! still pissed about leaving early, so actually i don't know how it ends!

i watched up to the part when abilieen and minny were at the grocery store and saw a woman reading the book! i so wanted to stay, but my husband was being such a nag b/c his movie got out before the help was over! guess i'll have to read the book or watch the movie again to find out how it ends!

all i can say is i am glad i didn't grow up in the south in the 60's! without opening a can of worms, i'll just say i am glad times have changed! way to go skeeter!!

as for some scenes in the movie i really wanted to get out my seat and punch someone! i think the cast was awesome! if only i got to see the end of the!  that's okay, i'll be milking it all weekend! ha! ha! ha! 

my favorite part of the movie was the scene with minny, hilly, hilly's mother and the chocolate pie! lol!!! karma is a bitch isn't it, lol!!!

i also loved the fact that hilly's mother bought minny's chocolate pie at the! sissy spacek was one of my favorite characters, such a riot!  i'll admit i'll becareful the next time somone shows up at my door with a chocolate pie! ha! ha! ha!

oh well, have a fabulous weekend!


  1. read the book! Youll find out how it ends =] I loved the book and cannot wait to go see the movie!

  2. I have it on my Kindle and am going to start reading it as soon as I finish my current book. I've heard it's phenomenal!


  3. I saw it this afternoon and LOVED it! I didn't read the book though. I am always disappointed with the movie made from a book. The movie is so good had I read the book it could have been a first.

  4. Just saw it today and absolutely loved it! So, so good, and I am not at all ashamed to admit I walked out of there in tears!

  5. i love your post!!!!

  6. I LOVED it too! Sooooo great! I want to be Skeeter.

  7. I loved the book and cannot wait to see the movie! Glad you liked it!
