Upon my urging, my dad went to see Million Dollar Baby last night. That he'd enjoy it was a gimme. He loves boxing and he loves Morgan Freeman even more, though Clint Eastwood is “a little too emotional and kinda looking at you sideways.” He called me this morning to tell me he and Darlene went to the Addison Marcus theatre for the 7:30 show.
“Okay, did you guys like it?”
“Well, we walked in and saw SPOILER GOES HERE. We watched that for about 10 minutes and thought it was going to be some sort of flashback. But then we realized there wasn't gonna be a flashback when the movie just ended.”
Apparently, the usher directed them to the wrong door. He got a free pair of tickets and still loved the show despite seeing the ending first.
“Wow, that sucks for you guys. That totally ruins it. When we saw it last week, I had no idea that SPOILER GOES HERE was going to happen.”
Dad, laughing really loud on the phone, “Well, I did!”
