Parents offered to babysit last night, so we took advantage of this rare moment of escape and went to the movies. Lucky for me, District 9 got past an initial wife-check [only because there wasn't anything else she wanted to see].
Brilliant movie. Probably not for a wife who isn't really that keen on seeing bodies explode via alien weaponry, but even she said the story was pretty good.
On the other hand, I was told that the next 2 movies had to be romantic comedies to make up for some scenes like "the fingernails".
A+ from me, C- from the wife.
