"That was the best movie I've ever seen!"

Derek claims I say this phrase after almost every movie I watch. Maybe I do, Maybe I don't! haha. But I really did see one of the best movies I've ever watched this past weekend. I allowed myself another "break" from the crazy and went to Branson for the late showing of The Help. I read the book last summer after Erin recommended it to me. I was reading a lot those days when I had to get up to nurse Ing in the night. I fell in love with this book. I wasn't too excited when I heard they were making it into a movie because we've all heard that song and dance. And the movie is never as good as the book. Or close, even. But as I watched more previews of The Help, I was intrigued. It looked like the movie was going to follow the book really well. And you all know I was in extreme need for some fun last week with all the school prep. So Heather, Amy, Erin and I loaded up and drove to the 9:45 showing. And it was AWESOME. Seriously. Go see it. But read the book too. They can't fit everything into the movie. Here we are after the show. It was so epic I wanted photos.

Mary Beth did a great run-down of the movie. Check it out.
