One of my favorite ways to relax with hubby at the end of the day is for us to put a good movie on and snuggle together in bed before we fall asleep. These week day, daily “date nights” help strengthen our marriage so much! While he was deployed this simple thing was one of the things both of us missed the very most!
One of our recent movies was The Fat Boy Chronicles. I’ve been super pleased lately at how many family friendly, moral movies are coming out. As I’ve mentioned before many times they have lower budgets, and because of this do come off a little hokey. After viewing the front, reading the title, and reading the back cover I fully expected this movie to be hokey, and in all honesty I wasn’t sure how crazy I’d be about it–especially hubby since he doesn’t like anything corny at all.
After watching the movie I turned to hubby and said, “that was SO CUTE!!!!” It was true! This movie far exceeded my expectations and was a delightful date night movie. Even hubby admitted that he liked it (don’t tell him I told you that) It follows the path of Jimmy throughout the year. It shows his path towards self improvement, self discovery, and self growth. I love how it showed what real and extremely difficult situations and lives that teenagers today have and live. It was so much more than just a movie about a “fat kid” who was being bullied. Family friendly it will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy–and I would recommend it for families with older kids or anyone who’d like a nice, clean, cute movie–even for a “date night”.
This movie was provided for our watching and reviewing pleasure. All opinions and snuggles were ours!
