I like this article but..
last night i went to the midnight premiere of harry potter and the half blood prince! I was honestly so disappointed! was it just me or did it seem very choppy and for some reason didn't feel like it was a harry potter movie. Don't get me wrong some of the parts in it were either really funny or somewhat scary but i really was not sastified. I dont know, what did you think?? Am i wrong? Give me your opinions

My girls were able to pick them out the last time we watched S&S. I think Deborah is quite correct!

I agree with Deborah, too. A couple came to mind immediately, and one shortly there after. I had to think really hard to come up with two more and was ready to sit down and watch the movie when I finally remembered the last. I always get thrown off and only remember Dawn French, oops!
