Iron Man- A Mom's Movie Review!


Let's just be honest. I rented this for hubby and was going to blog while I watched. It certainly did not seem like the kind of movie I would enjoy. Okay ladies, maybe it's my undying love for Robert Downey Jr, but I was hooked from the first scene.

Downey plays a cocky, jerky, weapons developer, who when confronted with the reality of whose hands his weapons get into, undergoes a life change. Yes, there is some superhero, transformer type stuff also, but this movie is deeper than an action film. It's well written, funny, realistic, and well thought out. Gwyneth does a pretty good turn as his secretary, but it's Downey that steals the show.

This is the recipe for a perfect date night at home! You can rent it for your man but enjoy the ride! It's an exciting movie beginning to end. I am giving it FIVE COSMOS! I can hardly believe it myself!!

I too was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this movie. Here's a recommendation for you:

Tell No One

It is all in French with subtitles. Usually, that is an absolute NO No for me, but this movie is amazing! Let me know what you think!

I am so glad to read that I am not the only one who loved this movie. I rented it for my nephew to watch and ended up watching it several times. Now I have a major crush on Robert too! Will I see any of you in line for the opening of Iron Man 2?

Sounds like you might be feeling a little better!

I KNOW what you mean about this movie. I couldn't believe that I liked it so much. It doesn't hurt that RDJr is easy on the eyes!

The husband dragged me to see in the theatre and I L-O-V-E-D it. It also re-ignited my crush on Robert Downey Jr. Cutie!
