Bridge to Terabithia

I hadn’t heard much about this movie. Someone mentioned it when it came out on a homeschool Yahoo group, but not much was really said about it. I rented it for Jack from Blockbuster Online, since he really likes Zathura and Jumanji. I couldn’t remember what Bridge to Terabithia was about, but I knew it was one of those kid fantasy movies. We sat down to watch it Friday afternoon, and it’s okay. It wasn’t what I expected, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. I did NOT expect to need tissues. I don’t mind so much watching a tear-jerker by myself. But Jack was sitting there with me. Fortunately, he didn’t think anything of it. So here’s your warning: Before you watch this movie, have a box of tissues handy. I’m just glad I didn’t see it in the theater. I usually don’t even take my purse into movies, so I wouldn’t have had any tissues with me. Jack’s opinion of the movie? About twenty “That was cool!” s.
