Saturday Movies- To Rent or Not to Rent

I have mentioned many times in the past how I score FREE movies from my local library. I am able to keep the movies for 5 day- way better that the Redbox and Blockbuster Express where you only get it for one night.

I tend to put movies on my library card list months in advance, then once the movie comes out on DVD, I am one of the first at the library to score a copy.

Since Saturday night's are the most popular night families rent movies, I figured I would start listing the movies I got from the library this past week and if they are worth watching or not.

This week, I got:

The Informant

Well, first I watched Motherhood and guess what her dog's name is? Coupon- I swear, I was cracking up. And to make the movie even funnier, Uma Thurman's character "blogs"- yep!! For all us bloggers out there, this movie was very cute, especially if you have kids, as she is blogging about her family. Other than that, the movie was just ok. Don't waste your money.

The Informant was very different than I expected. I LOVE Matt Damon in the Bourne movies, but wasn't loving his character that much in The Informant. The movie is a little twisted in the story line, but my Husband did enjoy. Matt is a corporate whistle-blower, but the plot thickens throughout the movie. It is a good movie to compromise on. I'm in!!



  1. This is really cool. I don't get any free movies as there is nothing as such around my place. Still i saw Motherhood and this was a very nice movie.

  2. I used to get movies from the library but now the most convenient thing for us is netflix.

    PS I am enjoying following your blog and would love if you could follow mine too. I am a brand new blogger.

  3. I agree about Motherhood. It was just ok. I did enjoy the dog coupon.=)

    I havent seen The Informant yet, but will put it on my list to get. I think my bf would enjoy.
