The movie we saw today was Joyful Noise. I liked it a lot. I liked it that there were all ages ranging from teens to old who had some sense. In some movies, the kids are smart and the adults are stuck in the past. I know that some are, but it's discouraging to think that Hollywood sees it that way. I didn't like the treatment of Aspergers in Glee (I don't think they intended to be offensive, but it was to me), but I thought the treatment of the kid in Joyful Noise was sympathetically done. I liked it that the name stars didn't dominate the movie...it was a multi-age cast with strengths all the way through.
