"'The Wrestler' is another movie that I first saw in the theater not long before I watched it for a second time on an airplane (my husband and I had gone to see it a few months before our honeymoon). But since (again) my choices on the return flight from Amsterdam were limited, I decided that I'd rather watch a good movie (even if I'd seen it just a few months earlier) than some crappy thing.
