Speech! Rabbit! Speech!

Bloggie friends!

This is my review of The King’s Speech:

Grab your popcorn and GO SEE! I loved it! :-)

My viewing pleasure was only ruined very slightly by this young couple who not only insisted on sitting next to me half way through the film, but then proceeded to whisper incessantly and coil themselves around each other.

Now I’m no prude and I didn’t mind, but unfortunately they then committed the most cardinal sin of all.

The silly young man took out his iphone and turned it on.

Charlie says: I am sleepy with my string.


HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! IT'S THE YEAR OF THE RABBIT!

Enjoy your carrots!

I really want to see that movie!

Words A Day said...

I hate that!
The glint of a cell phone in the dark cinema!

Though, dare I say it, worse was the time I went to see Romeo and Juliet and the teenagers behind me started screeching at the sad/poison taking moment...

(I'm trying to stay emotional and all I hear is )

"She's dead ye ejet!"

mmm!

mshatch said...

turned his phone ON? How absolutely rude!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I hope to see it before Oscar time. And people with cell phones in movie theaters are the worst!

ABBY said...

Mom said she wants to see The King's Speech...but she would have been annoyed at that young couple.

Helllllooo handsome Charlie.

I hate the cell phones in the theater! Evan and I tend to sit towards the back, so you can see the sea of screens...so annoying!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Boo for rude movie goers. My daughter and I want to go see it sans popcorn.

Claudia Del Balso said...

What is it with cats and strings? My kitty cat loves strings as well. She couldn't care less for the toys we get her. She loves her string. ;) I'm so glad to hear you liked this film: it's on my to-see list. One of my friends told me it's excellent and she also recommended it. Off to the movies, I go!

Told you it was good!

Nicole MacDonald said...

Oooooo... I have fantasied so many times about seizing the phone from the offending person and breaking it in two.. or leaping up and down on it..

Yeah I get movie rage ;p

The Arrival, only .99c on Amazon/Smashwords

You mean... turned the music on, on iPhone speaker? Oh, how rude!

SF said...

Happy year of the rabbit to you too!

I've only heard good things about The King's Speech, so it's on my must-see list.

And boo to iphones.

Mia Hayson said...

OMGG. NO. That totally is NOT on. Do they not know how painful the glare is??

Argh. Not as as when I went to Eclipse. MISTAKE. So much giggling and shrieking

I really want to see that! Glad to hear such positive things.

Kea said...

Very rude young couple! Too bad they couldn't have been escorted out of the theatre.

I'm glad to read you enjoyed it; perhaps I can make time in the next week or two to see it. :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Glad you enjoyed the film - pity about the pair sat next to you - how stupid of them to have the phone on - not to mention very anti-social. On the other paw Charlie seemed to enjoy his evening with the string!!
Purrs Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Madeleine said...

My hubby would have told them to be quiet! Poor you. Glad you enjoyed the film though. :O)

Brian said...

That's sure a cute picture of Charlie! Hey, my Dad said that because of folks like that they don't go out to the movies any more!

Summer Ross said...

I really dislike phones being on during a movie as well. Glad you liked the movie though

Boonie S said...

Charlie’s a darlin’ – unlike idiots with cell-phones.

Have a nice day, Boonie

Ann said...

Happy Year of the Rabbit to you too. And of course Charlie. Loving those carrots. I just hate when people totally disregard others at the cinema. How Rude!

Cheri said...

I have heard this is a great movie. Glad you liked it. Hi to Charlie!

Marg said...

Oh good glad you liked that movie. How rude of that couple. I would have spilled my popcorn on them.
Charlie, that is one hysterical picture. Too cute
Take care and stay warm.

Ann Best said...

I read the review. It sounds wonderful!

Your comment re: my lost purse. Oh my. Keys have been my downfall lately also, but fortunately I had both sets in my coat pocket. Usually I put one set in my purse and then the other around my neck on a string. And you left your keys at work, and then there's the travel pass! Yes, let's blame it on the long, cold winter. I'm willing to blame this on anything except early onset dementia!!!!

Jen seconds the motion, and sends her love to you and Charlie. So do I!!!!!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh that is so ridiculous that the couple not only came in half way through the movie,but that they then proceeded to be annoying - I would have gotten management or something (or asked for my money back because of it). Of course I say that and probably wouldn't do it but it is nice to dream of it!

Charlie looks so cute with his string - Stella likes to sleep with her pipecleaners, so I understand it!

Deborah said...

That was funny!
xxoo

Sammy and Andy said...

What a bummer.....some people have no couth at all!!!!!!!

Another wonderful pic of you, sweet Charlie.

xxxxxxx

LTM said...

argh! Now THAT I cannot stand. I can take the laughing, the squealing, even the canoodling. But the CELL PHONES in the theater, I hate.

and ew, I want to see that movie, too~ :o) xoxo

Maria McKenzie said...

I loved The King's Speech!! I highly recommend it--hopefully without a young couple and iphone beside you!

penandpaints said...

Glad you loved the film, I've heard a lot of people rave about it!

Are you sure you're relaxed enough there Charlie?

My cat Mischa does a good impression of a rabbit, she lolls on her back with her head back and draws up her feet like a bunny, with her front paws curled, so cute. I'll take a photo next time she does it, it's hard to describe hehe! Strange girl, perhaps it's her way of celebrating the Year of the Rabbit.

Hart Johnson said...

You should let Charlie know that in some parts of Asia, it is the year of the CAT.

People with cell phones should all be sent outside.

The Monkeys said...

It's amazing how people still do that!

Charlie, you look very worn out from playing with your string!

The Golden Eagle said...

People always seem to have their phones out. *sigh*

Happy Chinese New Year to you, too! :)

Travis Erwin said...

Sic the cat on them.

Lynda Young said...

I'd love to see the Kings Speech. I'm not a fan of the cinema though for the precise reason you experienced. So, I might wait...

klahanie said...

Hi there,
I've heard rave reviews about that film and my mum went and saw it in Vancouver. She loved it!
And those folks in the movie theatre..today's technology has brought to us a whole new form of rudeness!
Penny says 'hello Charlie:-)'
All the best, Gary

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Now that's why I don't go to the movies often!

Give me strength ... :)

lupie said...

So, do you know what version it was? the IPod ... hehehehe

Happy Rabbit (Cabbit) Year Jenn & Charlie!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Every time I go to the movies I put my feet on the seat in front of me in the hopes that no would would dare sit in front of me and it works almost every time!
God forbid if someone talks near me but I think the cell phone issue is far, far worse! Where have all the manners gone?
Thank you for your comments about PUDDLES the dachshund's barking issues! I'm sure she will take your advice!

Esme said...

Loved your use of the word coiled each other-snakes. I have a friend who insists on chatting-so I do not go with her anymore. Given I live in the infamous OC people think the world is theirs-cell phone conversations during a movie are astounding to me.

Theresa Milstein said...

Love your review almost as much as I LOVE Colin Firth. I just read Pride and Prejudice, and pictured Firth as Darcy the whole time.

Happy Chinese New Year!
