i went to see Pirates the other week and very much enjoyed it, although it is long - about 2 and a half hours.

i have seen both and to be honest they are both very good. break up there are lots of laughing out loud moments and pirates is very much fantasy. depends what you fancy really

i quite fancy a bit of johnny depp myself. lucky vanessa paradis - skinny, gorgeous, French, two lovely children AND johnny. cow.

mrsgiggles · 02/08/2006 12:48

is break up good does would a man happily watch lol

I saw break up recently and loved it. romcom without the cheese and no schmaltzy ending - and both of them are fab in it, as are the other characters. Found myself fancying Vince by the end.

I think a man would enjoy it but I was thinking "this has to have been written by a women" - it's very accurate about what women want out of relationships.

ne tips on taking kids to cinema to make it as relaxed for all oarties

I saw The Break Up a few weeks ago and although it was an easy to watch film, all the really funny bits are what they show in the trailers.
Apart from the bit where Jennifer Aniston's brother gets a sing song going around the dinner table, absolutely side splitting

I have seen pirates and thought it was one of the worst films this year! This was a pity as we had all been really excited it was coming out.

mrsgiggles · 02/08/2006 13:05

i didn't think it was too bad but did walk out thinkin that how on earth are they going to manage a third to be honest i think another one will be going to far

I was thinking that Pirates would be good to watch at the cinema whereas I don't think I'll miss anything by watching The Break Up on dvd. However, although I did enjoy the first Pirates I'm just not so sure about this one. We're going for my birthday so dh doesn't mind what I choose.

I haven't seen The Breakup yet (alhtough i love Vince Vaughn so it's on my list to see) but saw POTC 2 a few weeks ago and loved it. Johnny Depp is totally film stealing of course but it is very very funny in some parts and has some great action scenes.

Mrsgiggles - I took my four year old to see superman returns and it was great. I don't know how old your daughter is but I think as long as you remember to check for toilet breaks regularly it's fine. I would go at a busy time when there are alot of other kids in the cinema too and no-one will mind too much if she gets up or makes a bit of noise.
