Froyo & A Movie

My husband and I had frozen yogurt & a movie date night last night, a variation on your usual "dinner and a movie."  The froyo was excellent by the way - Menchie's is the latest and greatest thing to grace Seattle - a city that was seriously lacking in frozen yogurt for too many years.   My husband went for sweet: cheesecake + caramel while I opted for chocolate + pistachio swirl.  Delish!
Post froyo, we watched 50/50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogan, and Anna Kendrick.  The  movie is about Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a successful 27-year old guy diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer and how his life is affected post-diagnosis.  Seth Rogan is superb as the there-for-you sidekick to Adam, providing welcome comic relief to Adam in his time of need. Anna Kendrick is pleasantly neurotic as Adam's psychiatrist, disclosing the fact that he's only her third patient ever during their first session.  The movie is well done, plus the bonus of a well paired soundtrack.  As whole - I felt the story to be honest, fairly realistic, and the characters were well developed.  Definitely check it out!
All in all - a great little date night!
