I am doing an person movie night for the first time in 16 months!!!!! On a much smaller scale. But also, with a lot more pressure. Help me plan!!!!
My friend with the 3 year old suggested after her household (minus the three year old) was fully vaccinated, I could come over and watch a movie. And then after that, I realized another friend who lives literally half a block from her house would be a good possible cat-sitter for her, and suggested that the other friend walk over, join the movie night, meet the cats. We finally picked a day when everyone will be vacced and “marinated”, and I suggested it to my catsitter friend who said, coincidentally, her 19 year old little sister will be in town that week, also fully vacced and marinated, and can she come too?
So now I have my First Real Movie Night, and it is the very difficult social group of a 3 year old, a 19 year old who has possibly never seen an Indian movie before, the 19 year olds’ big sister who has seen lots of movies, and the 3 year olds’ mother who has also seen lots of movies. And me. Oh, all female of course, my movie nights are always Girls Only.
I have 3 goals here, as I see it:
- Embarrass the 19 year old in some harmless way because it is good for teenagers to be embarrassed.
- Simultaneously Not-Bore the 3 year old, and also encourage her to still go to sleep on time because it is a school night
- Provide an enjoyable film experience for the rest of us.
I am leaning Bahubali or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. They have some nice singing and dancing and fighting for the 3 year old, and semi-sex scenes to nicely embarrass the 19 year old. Only downside is, all the adults have already seen them.
What other movie would be enjoyable for a teenage girl, a little kid, and 3 people who have probably already seen it? Bang Bang? Kaho Na Pyar Hai? Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? Happy New Year? Om Shanti Om?
