I NEVER EXPECTED IT TO BE A ROMANCE - The Adjustment Bureau
The matinee movie (feels like I'm ditching class when we go to an early movie) was quite crowded and there's safety in numbers. I thought this was going to be great. But after about twenty minutes into the movie, I glanced over at my DH only to find his eyes closed. That wasn't a good sign. I laughed and asked him if he was napping and he gave me that kind of look that said, he would rather nap than watch what was on the screen.
So, as it turned out, The Adjustment Bureau IS a romance of sorts, but it's also about a group of (we don't know what to call them exactly, they aren't angels) tall men wearing dark suits and bowler hats who for some reason that was never really explained, must keep everyone on the right "plan" for their life. Disruptions can cause damage. And there's one odd little scene, where Matt Damon stumbles upon the "adjusters" in their role, "adjusting" his friend and colleague and now Matt has to be dealt with.
