Snatched & Graduation

MOTHER’S DAY MOVIES: “Snatched” & “Graduation” – 2 VERY Different Parenting Stories

If you want to take Mom to a movie for Mother’s Day, we have two opening this weekend that are about parenting: Snatched and Graduation. The film you choose all depends on just how raunchy your particular Mom is.

This is especially true for Snatched, which stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a mother and daughter who travel to Ecuador. Years of familial tension erupt as their trip spirals out of control and the women must depend on each other to survive. Continue reading →

Chatting About MAY MOVIES on “Good Morning Texas”

I know what you’re asking yourself today.

What am I supposed to do AFTER I’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2?

Well, you could go see another movie (after you’ve seen GOTG2 a second and third time, of course). Believe it or not, there ARE other films opening this month and some of them look fantastic. I was on Good Morning Texas last week, discussing the phenomenon of movies that AREN’T Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and you can watch that by clicking HERE. I didn’t get a chance to cover every interesting movie that’s opening this month, so I made a handy list for you with links to purchase tickets. Find that below, and remember that we won’t judge if you panic and just go see that new Guardians movie again. Continue reading →

Why is the World STILL Fat-Shaming Amy Schumer? (& Free Passes to Her New Movie “Snatched”)

Seriously, WHY are people still fat-shaming Amy Schumer?
See, InStyle magazine apparently used a photo of her in a swimsuit on their cover (see above) and it was more than one Massachusetts woman can handle. Dana Duggan, who is a swimwear designer, posted this comment on the InStyle Instagram account:
“Come on now! You could not find anyone better for this cover? Not everyone should be in a swimsuit.”
As you can imagine, Duggan was immediately chastised for her comments, though some idiots jumped in and agreed with her. She is sticking by her original remarks though, claiming it was FREE SPEECH and therefore HER RIGHT. Sure, I guess everyone has a right to be an asshole. You can read the rest of the story by clicking HERE.
Dana Duggan might not realize it, but she just did Schumer a HUGE favor by putting her back in headlines right before her new movie comes out!
Snatched stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a mother and daughter who take an exotic vacation that goes horribly awry. Want to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEWS (from other people): “Ant-Man” & “Trainwreck”

I didn’t see ANY movies this week. I went to the lake with some friends and this is what most of my week looked like.

The only problem with that is some really big movies just opened and people have been asking me about them. I’ve been wondering about these flicks as well so I decided to share reviews from some of my favorite Film Critics WITH you. Makes me seem generous…instead of just lazy.

I’ve been excited about Ant-Man because Paul Rudd can do no wrong in my eyes. I also can’t help but get excited about anything MARVEL does these days. I decided to share Robert Wilonsky’s review of it because he’s my favorite combination: Smart, funny & easy on the eyes. He also likes to share movies with his kid, which I can relate to. His review of Ant-Man got me pretty excited to see it so read that by clicking HERE.

I want to be best friends with Amy Schumer. I want to get drunk with her and run amok and end the evening by prank calling Katie Couric. I’ll have to settle for just seeing her movie Trainwreck. My friend Chase Whale saw this movie at SWSX and he’s been gushing about it ever since. I think he might have even shed a tear or two while writing this review, which is why I simply HAD to share it. You can and ABSOLUTELY SHOULD read his review by clicking HERE.

So THANKS FELLAS for doing the work for me this week. I will be back at it NEXT week though when Pixels hits theaters. I’ve got free passes for that one so make sure you grab those by clicking HERE. I’ll be at that screening with my kids, as well. Just look for the lady with the sunburned face and boat-hair.

PODCAST: Movie Chat With Trudi & Jim at WCSX in Detroit

I started reviewing movies for Trudi & Jim at WCXS in Detroit back in February when Fifty Shades of Grey came out. I love these guys because A) Trudi is awesome and because B) Jim lived in Plano & worked at KVIL for a while. He is awesome as well. I also love these guy because C) they will let me talk & talk & TALK. Any other radio stations I talk to keep my reviews under five minutes. This review is 14 MINUTES LONG! Lord knows, I could talk for DAYS if given the chance.
This week we discussed Magic Mike XXL, Ted 2, and your chance to see Trainwreck WITH Amy Schumer in NYC!
Thanks again to Trudi & Jim! Hope we can get cocktails together one of these days!

BLOG: Who Wants To Watch “Trainwreck” WITH Amy Schumer & Bill Hader?

I love Amy Schumer. Everybody does by now, right? She’s like that really AWESOME babysitter you had as a kid, who let you watch R-rated movies and stay up late. Then you saw her going out with her girlfriends one night and she looked so grown-up and sexy that you thought, “WHO are YOU?”

Obviously, I have a wicked-bad Amy Schumer girl-crush.

Anyhow, she has this new movie coming out July 17th called Trainwreck that looks hilarious. I haven’t seen it yet but they screened it at SXSW this year and everyone there called it “The Best Comedy of the YEAR!” It’s clear that we have to see this movie, but wouldn’t it be better to hit the Trainwreck premiere WITH Amy Schumer and Bill Hader? Well, you could.

All you have to do is donate to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to possibly win a 2 night trip to NYC and a walk on the red carpet at the premiere. Bill Hader will bring truffle popcorn to your seat and Amy Schumer will give you a “disappointing lap dance.” I wonder if she’ll give you a second one if it isn’t disappointing enough? There are different levels of donations but they start at $10 and even I can swing that. Click HERE to FINALLY have that shot at making Amy Schumer your bestfriendforlife, but you’d better share her with me. Or at LEAST share some of that Bill-Hader-Popcorn.
