Growing up, we would always use Friday or Saturday night as movie night. I can vividly remember going to the movie store and agonising over whose turn it was to pick the movie and then which movie to pick. I can also remember renting a VCR to watch the movies we rented because we did not own one of the newfangled contraptions!!!!
Well, tonight, Mom gave me a call and asked if we wanted to come over for a very special movie night. Those of you who follow (and have followed) my blog remember this post I made a few months ago. If you did not see it or don't have a clue what I am talking about - go to the link right now!!!! My little brother, Chuck, has been out in LA for a few years now doing this and that. This project was one of the this and that's that he has been doing: Pure Country 2: The Gift.
So today when we were in Wal-Mart (Bless, my dad's heart for getting me and the kids out of the house), we picked the movie up on DVD!!!! It came out on Tuesday and Wal-Mart is the only place you can get it, I think!!! ($13 - go now, they are open 24 hours!! or click on the movie title in the above paragraph and you can get it at Amazon, too, - I'm giving you options here.) We were so excited to see Chuck on the back cover of the case, too!!!! Carter was a little hacked off because Chuck's name was not on the back of the case with all the other "important" people, but you know how nephews can be . . .
Here are Mom and the kids pointing to Chuck on the back of the case . . .
To say we were all excited is a tad understatement. Carter would yell out in the movie, "There's Chuck!" each and every time we saw him. LB declared that Chuck did NOT know how to play the violin (that is his part of the movie) - he must have been acting (yes, LB, that is what they call it)!! We also learned that Damon has NOT been teaching his children the love of country music because when George Strait made his first appearance in the movie, Damon yelled (as much as Damon yells), "There's George!" to which Carter replied, "George Bush?" He was shot a look of disgust from his dad!!! I think those CDs are going to be pulled out tomorrow! It was a cute film with a good message - "To which much has been given, much is expected."
Not only did we see Chuck, but we also saw his friend, Betsy, in the movie as well. We looked for Joe Lynn and Will, but they must be on the editing floor - let's face it, guys, Betsy IS cuter than you both!!!
It was a great night at the Willis theatre and we all learned from Chuck and the movie to

ACTING - he is really not on the soundtrack!!!)
