Bee Movie

Took the family to the movies on Sunday to keep things low key. Marcus was really tired and fought exhaustion all day. He complained several times of a fever, and he spent a lot of time on the couch in front of the TV. In the end, everyone woke up this morning feeling much better and refreshed. He was excited to go to school today.

FYI... the Bee Movie I recommend for any Jerry Seinfeld fans... new humor from him will be welcome in many circles. The plot was the basic insect out in the big, human world story line, however the movie was awkward at times for kids. The plot of the Barry Bee trying to find himself and the obscure Graduate and other college teen angst references were lost on the other adults in our small town movie theater much less the kids. During a courtroom scene, the kids (I mean all of them in the theater) started getting restless. But in the end, both kids enjoyed it well enough to immediately ask to get it at Blockbuster when it comes out. And parts of it were really funny for adults, though it was awkward at times when it appeared that Amy and I were the only ones who got it.... seriously, the whole movie started as a Seinfeld making a pun about starring in a 'B movie' with Spielberg at dinner...
