There are myriad reasons Hugh Jackman is The. Sexiest. Man. Alive. You can see for yourself if you go to the movie Australia.
But maybe you don't care about Hugh Jackman and all of his sexiness. The movie was great regardless of HJ. It pays homage to great big pictures of the past...parts are a bit shcmaltzy but those are easily forgiven as the characters/actors are all so earnest. The movie is beautifully shot, the casting and acting were spot on, the story lines not too over the top, and for the boys in the audience, things get blown up.
The added bonus was seeing it with two of my favorite women in the world (one of them being JJV's wife)...we had an excellent girls night out including a post dinner trip to Cold Stone Creamery for dessert.
If you're tired of shopping, or don't have a favorite team playing tomorrow, go to the movies!
