I'm the guy that dies in the beginning of the movie

I don't currently have cable, so I've been watching a lot of movies. Usually, I go to the library and rent movies (My library has a great collection of documentaries which I love!) but lately, I'm addicted to RedBox! I had a few codes to get some free rentals and even without those, it's only $1! Can't really beat that!

Since moving in, I've watched a few that I really liked and one that was not as funny as I expected :-(

First, I was Just Go With It, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.

Let me preface by saying that Adam Sandler is one of my favorite actors (Big Daddy is one of my all time favorite movies), and this did not disappoint! I thought he was so funny and Jennifer Aniston, too! Between this and Horrible Bosses, she's becoming quite the little comedienne, isn't she? The plot itself was kind of silly and predictable, but I thought the jokes more than made up for it. Plus, I love the Andy Roddick cameo at the end! (PS I loved the soundtrack from this-it was a bunch of mash-ups!)

The second one I liked was Hall Pass with Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis.

It was pretty funny, too, though I though the supporting actors and actresses were the funniest parts. I just love Jenna Fisher and Christina Applegate and they were both funny in this. And there were some definite parts that had me laughing out loud.

The third one I rented I wasn't really happy with. I got The Dilemma with Vince Vaughn and Kevin James. I love love love both of them, so I was a little upset that this wasn't really all. They tried, but the jokes just fell flat :-( I can't be too mad since it was free, so I'll just wait till they have another movie come out to redeem themselves lol

Have you guys seen any good movies lately? Any recommendations?

I haven't seen any of these, but I've been wanting to see the Dilemma. I'm kind of bummed it's not great though. I love Kevin James, so that's disappointing.

I loved Bridesmaids-- it was so, so funny. Horrible Bosses was okay too, but not amazing.
