This post is not about Mrs. Pattinson (that's Twibite's territory) but it does relate to Rob's Mom. I'll get there, just stay with me...
Unlike the rest of you out there I did not rush out to go see Remember Me. I waited until the absolute last possible moment to succumb to the guilt and finally gave in. I was lucky to have my good friends MK and Mrs. R join me at the only place that was still running the movie this week. My suspicions were that if we didn't see it this week then we'd be waiting for the DVD. Of course, I'll buy it anyways...

Most of you have seen it so I'm not going to rehash the plot and for those of you who haven't I'm not going to spoil it for you.
First of all, this movie was a wake up call.
Up until last night I viewed myself as a Robward fan and frankly, embarrassingly, had not seen Rob in anything else other than Twilight except for his brief role as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter. I was prepared to be disappointed just because I was worried I'd notice his terrible New York accent and that he might be a bad actor.
Well I was really impressed by Remember Me. Rob proved to me that he is a good actor and that he is just being held back by a poor screenplay in the Twilight Saga. I'm sure many of you knew this already and never doubted him but I had to see it for myself.
Things of note in Remember Me:
Did anyone notice in the fancy restaurant dinner scene how strangely he holds his fork? Check out the video below at point 1:11. Maybe it's just because he's British (or possibly gay)? It was so odd that I don't remember the dialogue but just kept staring at his fingers.
Where does the Rob's Mom part come in?
Here is Rob with his Remember Me onscreen sister Ruby Jerins and mom Lena Olin.
I did not know that Lena Olin was in this movie. If I had I probably would have seen it sooner.

And most recently Rob's Mom played an evil sexy mom to Jennifer Garner in the television series Alias.

|Ooh, isn't that sweet? He looks so cute doting after her.|
What really brought it home that he is an infant? The famous backpack shot from the cafe.
|Seriously he is so a kid.|
At least he's wearing both straps so his back
won't get hurt when he grows up.
