the croods; mr blandings builds his dream house

On Saturday 15 June in the morning went to the Barbican family club, for the first time since it revamped, last year I think, to see The Croods. Better than I thought, and the younger generation enjoyed it too; but it wasn't top-notch.

And as we were leaving the Barbican we saw the 1pm flypast for the Queen's coronation anniversary going right over our heads.

In the evening we watched Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House, an old Cary Grant film, which wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped, but still pretty good. It was interesting to think how a modern version would have run. I'm not sure it would have ended so cheerfully; and the 'old boyfriend jealousy' subplot would have been handled less lightly, more crudely.
