Bridesmaids which was funny, as expected.

Part of Kentucky Fried Movie which we could not finish. My husband even said he felt stupider after watching it.

A Walk in the Clouds. Beautiful movie in spite of Keanu Reeves' wooden acting. Lovely score by Maurice Jarre.

"The Ides of March" with George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and a stellar supporting cast. Fascinating, chilling adaptation of a political play.

Saw The Oxford Murders with John Hurt. Pretty good except for Evan Wood who is too puny to be a believable leading "man" imo.

Evening and The Dilemma. The former is well-acted but a little depressing. The latter not as stupid as I thought it would be.
