Q: How Many Bobble Headed Einsteins Does It Take to Make A Funny Movie?

A: 3.14159265 in the face! (Get it? pi IN THE FACE!)



Okay, I had a great weekend. I can't say anything funny happened, but we saw the movie Night At the Museum 2, and it was funny. I actually like the sequel better than the original, which is unusual for me.
Did you ever go see a comedy because the trailer was awesome, only to discover that allthe funny gags were used in the trailer, and the trailer was actually funnier than the movie? Well, not this movie. My biggest disappoint is that YouTube doesn't have the Einstein bobble head scene, which I thought was the best. This movie had lots of funny sequences that did not make it into the trailer. The roaring dinosaur scene is actually funny in the movie, while in the trailer it looks like a so so gag.
The Einsteins were my favorite scene. My husband liked the Pharaoh with the Boris Karloff accent. Did you see the movie? Did you like it? Which scene was your favorite?

I love Ben Stiller! I enjoyed the first one, so I'll have to see the second!

We saw the first one at a theater that was IN a museum. That was fun! The trailer for this one just does NOT strike me as funny, though. Just looks dumb. Am I wrong?? I hope I am, because I really liked the first one!

I haven't seen it yet, but we will eventually. We thought about seeing it last night and I heard it was good. Now I can rest assured that it's good since I have the Helen seal of approval. Thanks!

I took my kiddo to see it at the drive-in and she really liked it. I liked it, too, but I thought the first one was better. Fun movie!

Oooo! It's out? Can't wait to see it!

Helen said...

Gabrielle, I liked the second even better!
Beth, I thought the trailer for the first one looked dumb, so nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah. Just kidding. About the nyahs.
jasonS, I loved it. I can't think of anything inappropriate for children or pastors in it either, which is saying a lot for a movie these days.
Sherri, I haven't seen many movies with him in it..unless...he is so good that you don't even notice he's an actor...that could be it...
Wendy,what was your favorite scene. Bobbleheaded einsteins...am I right?
katdish, yes it's out! And AWESOME!

I haven't seen this yet, and I was hesitant, but I'm going to now based on what you've said here.

I hope you don't disappoint me, Helen.

Billy, I hope your not disappointed, too. Recommending a movie to Billy Coffey is an awesome responsibility, and I hope I am fully up to the task...
