What a fun movie! I can’t remember the last time I walked out of the theater having had so much fun. Let’s face it, when it comes to horror movies it’s all pretty much been done. When I saw Freaky was a Blumhouse production, though, I got excited. They are great at what they do.
So what they did in Freaky was take a horror theme and add a ton of comedy into it. Vince Vaughn nailed this role. He was so much fun to watch as a girl. The fun that they had with the body switching was hilarious.
There was an underlying current to the movie addressing being bullied. There are so many scenes that have very good messages to those who suffer through that. My hope for the audience is that someone sitting there will walk out feeling a lot more confident and empowered over bullies. It doesn’t take fists to put them in heir place.
The theater that I saw it in was filled to capacity, and I’m so happy about that. One of the great things to add to your enjoyment is when the crowd gets into it. There were three separate times that the audience clapped and cheered. A great time was had by all.
So my suggestion is if you want to go out and have some fun during this interruption of normal life due to CoVid, see Freaky. I can guarantee that you won’t think of all the problems in life for at least one hour and forty-one minutes.
About The Peetimes: I really recommend the 1st Peetime. It gives you plenty of time, and was already seen in the trailers. The 2nd Peetime is just for Emergencies.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Freaky. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
