Madness, because who would take a 3 year old and a 1 year old? Last time you checked in on our drive-in experiences, it ended in disaster. Ole Dad here decided to unclip the carseat and allow the then two year old free. Mistake. Then the then 3 month old decided that particular night was the time to explode in a fit of rage….
Mind you, I guess I can’t be too upset. It was Superman Returns — and it was probably more enjoyable wrestling with screaming human beings than watching that terrible waste of celluloid (or whatever the young kids call it these days).
Fast forward one year. This time, we’re going to see the Bourne Ultimatum. We also have a DVD player for Paige…so we don’t have to unbuckle her.
Except she wants to watch our movie. Great. “Daddy, why is that man breaking that man’s arm?” or “Daddy, why is that man performing a D’Arce choke on that other man?”. All serious questions indeed.
But she sat beside us, eating her wiener and cheese popcorn until finally pronouncing ‘This is boring’. So she watched the Wonderpets on her DVD player. Cordelia, well, she just sat there…quiet…but still awake for two hours.
And we actually got to watch a movie. The Bourne Ultimatum — awesome. For me, I think it supplants Ronin as the greatest spy movie ever. Of course, I’ll have to watch Ronin again to make sure…
I give the Drive-In two big thumbs up.
