And they said it couldn't be done... (no they didn't)

After posting about not being allowed to watch "The Bodyguard" as a kid, people started telling me that they wanted to know what I thought after building suspense for two decades. So, I did what anyone in my position would do.

I live tweeted it.

Yes, I live tweeted my watching of a nearly 20-year-old movie. And guess what? I didn't lose a single follower, miraculously. Some even claimed to enjoy it.

My initial thoughts are:

Wow, how did they get her in that metal bodysuit?

No nudity? No awkward sex scenes? Why was I not allowed to watch this as a kid? I heard worse language from my parents' mouths when someone lost their favorite pen... (sorry, Dad.)

I don't want to include any spoilers for anyone who is waiting 30 years to watch it for the first time, so I'll just say, "OMG! I can't believe her (noun) (verb, past tense) a (noun)!!! I didn't see that coming!

If you want to know more about what I thought of the movie, check out my tweetacular commentary.

So, what's next? Maybe "The Sound of Music"? "My Cousin Vinny"? (Shout out, Lauren! I never saw it.) Only time (and Twitter) will tell.

please, please, please livetweet your first viewing of My Cousin Vinny. OMG please do this.

B said...

Sound of Music please! Only because it's epic-ly long and awesome. And there's singing! (Like The Bodyguard - it could be a theme...)\

too funny! Like you, I have never seen any of those movies. [Well, I guess you one-up'd me now :)]

Is it shameful to admit that I have never seen Pulp Fiction? I have seen certain bits, and know of certain scenes, but have never actually watched it. My group of friends would disown me if they knew this.

How 'bout you - have you seen it?

Hahah This was too funny. Also never seen "My Cousin Vinny" -- maybe I should live tweet it with you! I vote for Sound of Music! Do it.

I think 'my cousin vinny' would be a nice one!

It was really funny to see this and it really brighten my day. It was so cool! :)

That is hilarious. I love it. I'll have to go look at the tweets. I was so in love with Kevin Costner back then - he lived in the town next to mine and we used to drive by his house all the time hoping he would be outside picking up the paper or something.

New reader here! And I wasn't allowed to watch this as a kid either! I still haven't watched it, but your live-tweeting adventure as inspired me! I'm definitely going to watch it asap! My mom was super strict with movies (although I was allowed to read just about anything) and I missed out on so many classic movies too! I can't wait to see what you watch next!
