What’s a Mama to Watch?

Some of you have told me that you do indeed read this little gathering of words I put together from time to time, and today I’m calling on you for some help (this means you, Heinze).


Since the birth of the little dude, our weekly date nights have turned into dinner out and a movie in, on the couch.  We’ve been making good use of our Netflix account in the past few weeks, but we’re starting to run out of ideas.


This is where you come in.  Might you have some suggestions for good action, romance, sports, or any other genre of movie for us so we can create a sweet queue that is not dominated by the first season of Felicity, which John really has no interest in at all. . . .


For reference, the last few movies we watched were It Could Happen to You, How to Train Your Dragon, and Babies.  All good, all four stars, I’d say, although John would probably give Dragon five.


Thanks in advance, friends!

    a. Parks and Recreation — both season one and season two are instant on Netflix and they are addicting

    b. Better off Ted — again, seasons 1 and 2 are instant and they are so clever!

    I will think of movies as well!

    Hey! I do read this from time to time!
    If you like Anchorman (“Goes down smooth every time”) try “The Other Guys” if you haven’t already. Not sure if it is out yet, but so awesome.
    I am waiting patiently (not really) to see “Life as We Know it” since I will now get all the baby jokes.
    As far as shows go, have you seen Flight of the Conchords? Super duper.

    Amazing Grace and Pursuit of Happiness are great films=0) Pete wants me to watch Fiddler on the Roof– and the old version of Yours, Mine and Ours is great too!

    love you three!!
