Get Smart (2008)

If you're in the mood for some good slapstick, I would recommend this movie. I'm usually kind of elitist in my humor preferences, considering slapstick sub-par....but somehow, Steve Carrell won me over this time. I know, shocking. :)

One warning - there is at least one sight gag (is that what it's called?) that I found distasteful, so...don't say I didn't warn you. But overall I thought the humor tended to be fairly clean and just ridiculously playful.

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate KiCamillo

This book was recommended to me by my good friend, Tara. She is an elementary teacher and informed me that the reading level of this book is 4.7. On the inside cover of the copy she lent me, it also says 5 points.

I read like the whole book today, before and after my soccer game. It's an easy read, and so...wholesomely sweet. I liked it.
