My hubby and I don't get to enjoy a night out to the movies without our boys very often. With complimentary screening tickets from Mira Mesa Mom, we couldn't resist.
A movie on a week night hasn't happened for us in years! Thanks to my wonderful in-laws, we were able to enjoy Celeste and Jesse Forever at the AMC Theaters in La Jolla, CA.
The movie had an awesome soundtrack! I can't wait to download the songs! One of the songs I liked the most was Porcelain Raft's "Drifting in and out".
The storyline was funny and sad at the same time. The movie follows the relationship of a couple who grew up together and grow apart from each other. The movie is a reminder to me of the intricacies of marriage. Every great marriage embraces compromise. In order for a marriage to work, both parties have to give and take equally. Marriages also have to be complimentary. Husband and wife have to compliment each other. Where one is weak, the other strong, and vice-versa. Husband and wife have to compliment positive traits in one another. At the same time, both parties have to be constructive in helping each other work though the traits that might not be too positive. Lastly, a marriage cannot function on the "I'm right, you're wrong" mentality. Neither is 100% right if the decision or answer is not in benefit of the couple.
I enjoyed the movie! I love a romantic comedy that makes me laugh a good belly laugh and makes me tear up all in one movie! This is NOT a chick flick, my hubby enjoyed it as much as I did! So, guys grab your girl (or girls, grab your guy) and check out Celeste and Jesse Forever!
