Regal Theaters Summer Movie Express
The week of June 21st and 22nd the Summer Movie Express will be featuring:
KUNG FU PANDA (Tuesday)
MR. BEAN'S HOLIDAY (Wednesday)
I am a big fan of Kung Fu Panda, I love an overweight underdog. I recently enjoyed the sequel (ok, howled and giggled). Take the kids to see the original Kung Fu Panda this Tuesday at the Summer Movie Express.
I have loved Mr. Bean and his wacky antics since I was a girl. Rowin Atkinson, a British actor whose performance is a combination of silent films and slapstick, is featured in the movie, Mr. Bean’s Holiday. I love Mr. Bean because his comedy is universal. He almost never speaks (nor do his co-actors) during a skit, which only ads to the hilarity. His impossibly embarrassing situations, no matter how odd, somehow fill us with empathy. This movie is the long awaited answer to the burning question, when will Mr. Bean visit America? Adults will enjoy this movie, perhaps more than the kids. See how Mr. Bean’s Holiday goes awry this Wednesday at the Summer Movie Express.
