Gold Class movies

Today we finally used our Gold Class movie gift card. It expired today so we had limited options for movies to choose from. It was a choice between Eat Pray Love (I couldn't finish the book so I didn't think the movie would be bearable either, and also probably not a movie for men), Wall Street 2 (film topic holding absolutely no interest) and Dinner for Schmucks (comedy with mixed reviews).

So we chose Dinner for Schmucks. I figured that even if it was a really bad comedy at least there might be a few laughs to be had while we were enjoying the recliner chairs and the drinks.

As happens sometimes when you go to a movie with low expectations, it was better than I thought it would be. Not brilliant, not unforgettable, but a clever storyline with some quite funny moments. Think bizarre kind of comedy moments rather than stupid and irritating ones. Happy ending. The good guys (in this case, the idiots) come out on top. And the mouse dioramas are quite fetching.

Gold Class was nice too. The best bits were being able to put your feet up on the seats and having the food and drink brought out. I had an ice-cream sundae with crushed up Maltesers in it. There's an easy dessert idea for the future when we have family movie nights.

At this stage in our lives, it's unlikely we'll see the inside of Gold Class again for quite a while. It was good to be able to do it this once.
