The beginning was cute as well as the end but IMO all the funny parts were shown in the trailers so there was nothing new to really laugh at.
Though I must say the theater was beautiful!!! And the ultra screen was sooo cool! would have been perfect to watch Batman, Dark Knight on!!!
"Marcus Theatres opened its new 70-foot-wide UltraScreen at the Orland Park Cinema last month in time for the holiday season. The Orland Park UltraScreen is a completely new 400-seat auditorium designed and built from the ground up as a state-of-the-art showcase for moviegoers in the Chicago suburb of Orland Park and the surrounding areas."

I seriously thought I had broken my finger and was half expecting it to just be hanging there by a thread of skin. It wasn't thank GOD! Louis got out of the van and took me inside to get me some advil and to rinse my finger with water and peroxide and bandage me up. We don't really keep splints on hand so we grabbed the closest possible thing. a baby spoon heehee I must say while it looked ridiculous he really did a great job of taking care of me in my time of need!
As soon as I was all fixed up we headed out to Chinatown where the food was VERY yummy!
Afterward we drove around to see where some good parking spots were and found our favorite spot by the Planetarium closed off =(
We drove around a while longer and found a really good parking spot around 11:30pm which surprised us.
here is Lanie and Martie sitting out of our moon roof, Zander on Louis' lap looking for the fireworks and Wes was getting ready to come with me to set up the tripod for fireworks shots =)
at midnight we drank some sparkling grape juice out of tiny Ed Debevic's Sundae glasses
mine was waiting on the dashboard...
a long exposure pic to show where i set up the tripod (probably a little too close to the traffic, especially being New year's eve and all...
and the FIREWORKS!!!!
Some more long exposure shots of the Wrigley Building aound 1:45am to show how busy it is on New Years Eve.
Check out the helicopter path in the second one...
