Okay. So I like sappy movies. Shoot me. But I do. And I liked this one. It is sappy and makes you feel good, and has just the right sort of peppermint tinged sweetness to make it perfect for the annual "Day after Christmas Flick" that my friends and I love. Each year we go see a movie. Some choices have been better than others but this was just fun. No heavy thinking,no gore, no gut wrenching. Ahhhh.... 8 of us went, including my Mom and 2 husbands. Yes, to a sappy, romantic piece of fluff! And they did not complain. Major Brownie points were earned huh? But oh! Is it just me or is Kate Winslet absolutely luminous? And that house of hers. Oh my. Yeah, yeah. The one Cameron Diaz's character lives in has every bell and whistle known to man and is huge and glamorous and grand and knocks one's socks off. But Rosehill Cottage (as Kate's character's home is called) is just the sort of precious and perfect dream home I think about on snowy, sleepless nights.
Drafty? Probably. That's what fireplaces and down comforters are for!
I could curl up in it and stay there for ever...right there in that tin bathtub.
