    Default Are these correct?

    Hello

    I'd like to know if I can rewrite #1 to #2 ~3?
    #1 Yesterday my mother asked me if I had enjoyed the movie the day before.

    #2 Yesterday my mother asked me if the movie had been enjoyable the day before.
    #3 Yesterday my mother asked me if the movie had been fun the day before.

    I'd be happy to know if #2 and #3 are correct or not and if there are any good expressions instead.

    Yours truly,
    Lina

    Yes, they are all correct, but I think the first one is preferable. The second one has the drawback of being rather awkward.
