Two thumbs up for "Gran Torino" staring Clint Eastwood. We went last night with my parents and Troy's parents and all 6 of us REALLY enjoyed it!
Clint's character is overtly racist for 99% of the movie, but it works really well with the plot and isn't gratuitous (i.e., it's a part of his character and not for shock value). It was very funny, extremely touching, and sad at points.
I highly encourage everyone to go see it!
And to eat dark chocolate covered peppermint "Joes" from Trader Joes. Hot damn those are delish.
Any my challenge to crafty people out there: please make a pair of maternity pants that don't result in saggy ass. M'kay, thanks!
