Ben 'Finn' Finnegan:
I refuse to believe that.
Well, just because you refuse to believe something doesn't make it true. Or false. Or... whatever the hell I'm saying.
Ben 'Finn' Finnegan:
Something wrong, Tess?
Something wrong? Why would anything be wrong? We just had sex in a church - and we're not even married - and now we're gonna dig up a grave! I mean, what is that, like a triple sin? I'm surprised we haven't been struck by lightning.

My expectations for this movie were very low going in, and I would say that the movie met them. I expected a fun, exotic, exciting adventure, which the movie delivered upon. It is a fairly predictable movie, but always fun to watch Mathew McConaughey play the guy who hasn't grown up along with Kate Hudson playing the lady who wishes he would. Their chemistry is great, and isn't that all you really expect from a movie like this, regardless of plot?
The only thing that didn't fit in the movie was a couple of overly bloody scenes (on an absolute basis the blood was very minor, but the fact that they showed up at all was surprising.)
Not the best movie you will ever see, but will certainly give you a break from all this extreme winter weather we have been having.
