The TIme Traveler's Wife

We just got back from seeing the time traveler's wife! My goal was to finish the book before I saw the movie but my husband was so excited to take me out on a date that ended with this movie I just couldn't disappoint him.
I would highly recommend seeing it! It was very well done. I think that even my husband enjoyed it! I only got 40 pages into the book but I would love to hear what any of you who have read and seen the story think.

There was also a trailer for a new Sarah Jessica Parker movie. I had always thought she was pretty but now I see why no men every think that she is.

I've heard mixed reviews on the book. Some people loved it, others couldn't get into it and though the ending was a bust. I haven't read it....but I definitely want to see the movie!

We just saw that last night also - I had never read the book so the movie left me confused in a few spots but it was still great to see. We enjoyed it. And hubby and I thought that SJP looked well,... not her best, in those preview shots either! Did you get to see the new preview for the Sandra Bullock film? Looking forward to seeing that one!

I'm dying to see this movie! I loved the book and can't wait to see how they put it together!!

My hubs thinks SJP is hideous. I finally realized that I think "Carrie" is adorable, but SJP?! Not so much.. Don't know if that makes sense but I think the personalities of her characters she plays makes her more attractive than she is....

Hi! Just found your blog - it's so cute! Thanks for the review of the movie - I've been thinking of seeing, but wasn't sure.

I read the book and just saw the movie this morning with a girlfriend. I was left a little disappointed in the movie the book was so much better and they left so much of the book out of the movie. Oh well I guess most books that are turned into movies are like that. I hope you enjoy the book I couldn't put it down when I first started!

My husbadn and I both loved the the book and having been waiting forever for them to make this movie. Can't wait to see it.

That is so funny about SJP. My husband has always said he did not find her attractive "looking like a man" might have been part of it. But I thought that was just him because I have always thought she was super pretty.

A waiter told me I looked like SJP once. I was like, "Gee, thanks!". :s Hope you had a great weekend!

I wanted to wait until after everybody saw it and gave the reveiws for the movie to see if people liked it or not. I didn't want to be let down! I think I will go see it nowo.
