It was Friday afternoon. Mike and his friend Peter decided to go to the cinema.
They wanted to see the new action film BLOOD DIAMOND with Leonardo
DiCaprio. Peter said that he was going to check the newspapers in order to see
at what time the film is on schedule at their local cinema.
Peter called Mike and told him that the film starts at 7 p.m. Mike's dad drove
them to the cinema in his new car. The boys arrived at the cinema at 6:30 p.m.
Mike bought the tickets for the front row. They wanted to be as close to the
action as possible. Peter bought some pop-corn and M&M's. They went to their
seats in the front row.
They were very excited. They couldn't wait for the film to start. After the usual
commercial messages, the film finally started. As the music was loud and the
screen was dark for a few seconds, Peter's and Mike's eyes were glued to the
screen as the film title appeared: HAPPY FEET.
Mike and Peter were silent. They even stopped breathing for a few seconds.
They waited for the title to change from HAPPY FEET into BLOOD DIAMOND.
But the title didn't change. All of a sudden the screen was full of animated
penguins. The two of them started to laugh out loud. They almost fell off their
seats from laughter.
They looked at each other and decided to stay and see the film till the end.
Instead of being in the middle of the action film, they were in the middle of the
North Pole.
They felt very happy after this film. Their parents laughed too when they told
them what happened.
Next time I'll check the newspapers, said Mike when they got home.
