Okay Dopers, help me out:
My wife is taking the kids out to visit her family over the 4th of July weekend. I am going out, too, but for much less time due to work considerations. That leaves me with a weekend where I get to “batch it” (I assume this is a common phrase - i.e., be a bachelor).
One thing I love to do in this situation is rent movies - with two young kids, I don’t get out to see movies a lot. When I do, they must be movies that my wife and I both want to see. Hence, no Man Movies - mindless action thrillers filled with gratuitous sex and violence, often with credible or dubious comic-book origins. Alternately, there is the Man Movie Comedy, fill with gratuitous sex and bodily-function jokes. Both are eminently qualified to meet my needs.
So - I plan to head to the video store upon my return from the visit, get 5 - 6 DVD’s, hole up with appropriate supplies and get my Man Movie on.
So - what’s come out recently that I should be renting? I got to see X3 (not on DVD yet, but I have authorization to take my son to X movies), saw Napoleon Dynamite, Wedding Crashers and 40-Year-Old Virgin (I much preferred 40 to WC, fwiw).
Help an temporary bachelor out here!!
