Welcome to Rio!

I feel a bit like a broken record: Look! A kid-friendly movie topped the box office again.

I'm undecided about seeing "Scream 4." I am a little terrified of scary movies, but I know the "Scream" franchise isn't supposed to be as scary (and definitely not as gory) as other horror flicks. A friend described it as a more smart type of scary movie. But I remember being pretty terrified of the first one ... so we'll see if I am up for catching up with the first three and watching the fourth.

"Rio," on the other hand, is one I'd really like to see.
