What you scared? Scared that you don't belong over here? That you are beneath us?
No, see I'm just trying to help you save face! Cuz I would hate to see you get spanked in front of all your fans!
Young blood, you couldn't spank me if your hands were glued to my ass!
My hands glued to your ass? I don't know, that sounds a little sweet to me sweetness!

We saw Roll Bounce this afternoon. It was exactly what I expected it to be. A predictable, exaggerated, silly, corny, inauthentic 70's nostalgia-fest.
We loved it! Seriously, it's probably in our top five for the year thus far. It was so much fun. Even the dramatic, serious moments were good and not laughable. My husband said afterwards he was thinking how funny it was that an emotional scene in an otherwise fluffy, insubstantial feel-good movie could evoke more feeling in him than all two hours of The Constant Gardener, for example.
Anyhow, we've both been a good mood ever since, we just had a great time at the movies. It was nice to see a good, clean, wholesome family movie that doesn't suck.
