Harry Potter Opening Night Synopsis. NO SPOILER ALERT

6:50 pm Depart Noah's parents' house for movie theater. Wave bye bye and blow kisses to Ethan, who is staying with Grandad.

6:58 pm Return to Noah's parents' house to give Noah's Dad our house key so he can take Ethan home and put him to bed. Wave bye bye and blow kisses to Ethan, who is now confused.

7:06 pm Arrive at movie theater for 8 pm show.

7:10 pm Begin angling for best spot in line with the four other people who have showed up early. (What?? Where are all the freakishly freaky Harry Potter fans?)

7:13 pm More fans begin to show up.

7:15 pm
Loudly announce that I'm not afraid to throw elbows when we're finally released into the theater to get seats.

7:48 pm Am duly impressed by kindnesses shown toward latecomers looking for seats together.

8:03 pm "Did You Know?" celebrity fact in previews states: "Angelina Jolie began collecting knives as a young girl."

8:03:30 pm Laugh heartily when mother-in-law claims Angelina Jolie began collecting knives as a young girl to stab Jennifer Aniston in the back.

8:14 pm Film begins, nervous laughter ripples through crowd.

9:58 pm A startling moment scares us all; a collective "@*#)*#*&&&#!))@##$&*!!!!" and gasps ripple through crowd.

10:07 pm Theater erupts into laughter at a heart-wrenching moment when a dedicated fan raises his open cell phone into the dark in lieu of raising a glowing wand.

10:40 pm Depart theater satisfied with an excellent film; comment on how mature the actors are now; tell Noah he looks like an older, buffer, hotter, American Harry Potter.

11:48 pm Fall asleep. Dream that Andy Roddick is my waiter in a restaurant; encourage him to quit waiting tables because "You're playing such good tennis right now!"

Josh is taking me (and Jude!) to see it tomorrow afternoon. Generally speaking, I hate the HP movies, though i looovvve the books. even so, I just can't seem to stay away.

Jillian—One improvement was that there was less "snogging" in the movie than in the book ;)

Maggie May—Totally. BUT! Don't you agree that the actors are really coming into their own? I felt that their acting was much more subtle and refined this time around.

I am sure this part of your post will be analyzed by dumbfounded psychiatrists worldwide.
