Fortunately, a Misprint

My sistah, Beads, is in town for a week.  I sooo love when she visits.  We decided to go to the drive-in movie tonight with the kiddos.  When Beads called me to make arrangements, she said, "Kay, the first movie is Ice Age."

"What's the second movie?"

"Um...Magic Mike."

Magic Mike?  Like, the movie about male strippers???  Right after a kids' show??

"No way!  That's got to be a misprint!"

"It says so right here!  I sure hope you're right.  At any rate, I think we had better really hurry to pack it up and get out of there after Ice Age is over, kay?"

"Roger that."

So we went.  The movie was really cute.  And as soon as it was over and ending credits started, we ran around like crazy getting our stuff shoved into our cars to get out of there!

As we drove away, I looked at the sign outside.  The second movie turned out to be The Watch, not Magic Mike.  Phew.

But still.  The Watch is rated R.  Not many parents I know would let their kids watch a rated R movie, amIright?  It just seems weird to chase a kids' movie with a rated R movie.

Oh my! Good thing you got out of there. I thought they were always family shows - however, I wouldn't know. I have NEVER been to a drive in movie. Never. Sad for me - but oh well. I guess I don't know what I am missing.

I guess they count on the kids having zonked out by the second movie? I dunno.

Seems odd to me, too, to have a R movie right after a kids show. Oh well. Hope you are doing well!!

In my experience, usually there's a kids movie followed by an adult movie, but it is weird that the adult movie was rated R!!

I'm so glad Brianna got to visit! If only she and Spencer lived a little closer...

Drive-ins are a blast, but I agree that the movie combo is weird. A sign of the times, perhaps?
