gratitude-a-thon day 910: a good movie in a drought of good movies

 

Screen Shot 2016-08-21 at 8.13.52 AMI saw a great movie last night. It was a movie by Ira Glass. “This American Life” Ira Glass (in case you were confused it was another Ira Glass–sometimes my stupidity astounds even me).

Anywho, Don’t Think Twice is about an Improv group who are all best friends (actually two of them are a couple, and a couple is always two, in case you didn’t know that, glad to help) and it is the story of how one of them advances his career (actually what he did was get chosen to be on a show that was supposed to be Saturday Night Live, but which is called something else, but I knew, because I’m smart like that), and the effect this has on everybody in the group.

Keegan-Michael Key is the dude who “makes it” and I’d just like to say right now, that guy is going to be a big star. (My husband was like, “He’s already a big star,” and I was like, “He is going to be a bigger star.”) He’s so immensely likable and completely natural. Not to mention he totally slays an impression. Plus, he’s adorable.

The movie explores friendship, envy, career, and ambition. It asks you to ponder the meaning of success. The writing is really good– I snort laughed at least twice.

Also, I would like to mention that the popcorn at The Kendall is completely the best popcorn on the planet (you know I can tend to exaggerate, but I am not at all, SERIOUSLY.)
