Last night, when Mitch FINALLY stopped playing his little video game, we watched the movie that Neil and Kelly had rented, Rat Race. I was nervous about this movie. On the one hand, I had heard pretty good things; on the other, well, it has Whoopee Goldberg in it.
Man, if you're in the mood for levity -- this movie cracked my shit up, and I didn't have to use my brain once. I'm a sucker for physical comedy, and there it was, with almost no gross jokes. I don't like gross jokes. But seriously, and even if you don't like a few of the actors in it -- there are so MANY of them, each one is only on screen for a little bit, so you never get tired of any one schtick. And Rowan Atkinson -- I started laughing every time a scene started up in which he appeared. I was all ready to be snooty and "ew, Mr. Bean is SO five minutes ago," but oh man, that guy is a freaking comedy genius. "Eet's a race!"
