Day 24: A Movie You Never Expected Yourself To Love

When I first saw the description for the movie Penelope, I thought that it sounded dumb and that I would NEVER want to watch it.
But I turned it on anyways.
I have no idea why.
I guess I was just curious if it was any good or not.
I watched the first couple of minutes and was instantly intrigued.
So I kept watching.
And by the middle of the movie, I was in love with the characters and just HAD to know what was going to happen.
By the end of the movie, it was on my list of all-time favorite movies.
I never expected to like it.
I never expected to love it.
But I do.
And I could watch it over and over.
Especially with James McAvoy in it.
I think he just makes the movie all the better.
If you don't know who he is, he played Mr. Tumnus in Narnia.
He was cool in that, but he's awesome in Penelope.
So I loved that movie.

I love that movie! Ok, there's a few things in it that I don't care for, but as far as the whimsical...whimsy of it all, and a good story, and a great movie, it's a definite favorite!
