FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Puerto Ricans in Paris” ON ME!

Luis Guzman is an unsung hero.

This occurred to me recently while watching one of my all-time-FAVORITES, The Count of Monte Cristo. Guzman plays Edmond Dantes’ devoted friend Jacopo, but he’s also played a million other characters you’ve loved, in films like Out of Sight, Traffic, and OF COURSE Boogie Nights! That’s not even counting all the TV he’s done over the years, so it’s nice to see Luis Guzman get his name above the title in Puerto Ricans in Paris.

It stars Guzman and Edgar Garcia as New York detectives who are sent to Paris, in search of a black market thief. It’s a fish-out-of-water tale as they stumble through the world of high fashion, searching for a stolen design. Sounds like loads of fun and I have your free passes! Just click HERE to grab those, then check out the trailer below. And HOLY CLEAVAGE! How hot is Rosario Dawson?!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Love & Friendship” On Me!

Let me just go ahead and admit to being a bit in love with Kate Beckinsale. She’s smart (left Oxford so she could focus on acting), she’s a poet (won awards for poetry she wrote as a child), and she’s a badass mom to a 17-year-old girl. In fact, when Beckinsale was asked about hugging her ex-boyfriend, Michael Sheen’s NEW girlfriend Sarah Silverman, this is what Kate said:

“She’s such a great woman. For your kids, you want obviously to be the best parent you can possibly be, but it’s really important that — especially girls — have other women in their lives that aren’t you that also bring to the table intelligence and wit and balls and all that stuff.”

Amen to THAT!

Kate is starring in the new movie Love & Friendship, which is based on a novel Jane Austen wrote when she was only 20. In fact, it wasn’t even published until after her death. In it, Beckinsale plays the devious Lady Susan, who manipulates society to ensure a proper marriage for her daughter and to pad her finances. Sooo Austen, isn’t it? Love and Friendship also has film critics breathlessly giggling over how captivating, witty and charming it is. All those descriptive words that only film critics use, and guess who has free passes?

I DO!

Even better, these are Run Of Engagement passes, which means you can see Love & Friendship at a time that works for you (Monday-Thursday at the Angelika in Plano, please). I have 4 pairs of passes, so the first 4 people who ask for them in the Comments section below can have them. Now, take a moment to watch the Love & Friendship trailer below. Oh dear GOD, she really is adorable!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Miracles From Heaven” On Me!

Miracles From Heaven has everything a parent could want. It has inspirational messages about faith and hope and how miracles can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places. It also stars Jennifer Garner as a desperate mother, and I think we’re all cheering for Ms. Garner right now. In fact, someone just sent me this short of her reading Go the F*ck to Sleep and it’s about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

I imagine Jennifer Garner has cleaned up her language a great deal for Miracles From Heaven so click HERE to snag free passes to that and then watch the trailer. Oh don’t worry, this one IS safe for work!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “10 Cloverfield Lane” On Me!

Holy Crap!

I just watched the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane again and got chills up and down my arms! What the hell is happening here? Speculation has run the gamut and the fact that J.J. Abrams is a producer has added to the obvious Cloverfield monster-movie connections. I can tell you that my research (meaning the 5 minutes I just spent on Google) determined that this project was around long before it was attached to Abrams and that there was originally no mention of monsters. That honestly tells us nothing so instead of speculating any further, just grab free passes to see 10 Cloverfield Lane by clicking HERE, then watch that freaky trailer again. Seriously, what the hell is happening here?!!!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Witch” On Me!

You just can’t decide about seeing The Witch, can you? Some people say it’s insanely scary, others say it’s just a big disappointment. Even I had a hard time making up my mind about it (read my review of The Witch HERE). The BEST way to see a movie you’re not sure about is FOR FREE, right? And lucky for us I have a few passes to see The Witch, but only 2 pair. Don’t complain, it was the most I could get but they are RUN OF ENGAGEMENT passes. That means you can use them whenever you want at any Dallas-area AMC Theater. Here’s what you have to do to get them.
I will give these passes to the first 2 people who post pictures of their favorite witches in the “Comments” section. For example, here’s mine:

Got it? Good. And this is NOT a time for political statements so no pictures of Hilary Clinton please, or any other candidates. Yeah, I know you were already photoshopping Donald Trump on a broom. GOOD LUCK!

Click right HERE to grab those and then watch the trailer with me again. Omigod, THAT SLOTH!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” On Me!

Everything about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot makes me tingly.

It’s based on the real experiences of Kim Barker, a journalist who worked in Afghanistan and Pakistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Barker wrote a book called The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan and Tina Fey’s production company Little Stranger picked it up. The screenplay was written by Robert Carlock (30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) AND it’s produced by Lorne Michaels. Best of all, Tina Fey PLAYS Kim Barker and she has a weird affair with Martin Freeman (who will ALWAYS be Bilbo Baggins in my book). Pretty much nothing but gold there, right? Well, just in case it isn’t, why don’t we all see Whiskey Tango Foxtrot FOR FREE? I have passes to a screening on March 1st so click HERE to snag those and then watch the trailer. I mean, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot HAS to be good, right? Oh shit, I just got chills watching the trailer again.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Zoolander 2” On Me!

Wanna know a secret?

I’ve never seen Zoolander. I don’t know how the Hell it happened, but I somehow got this far in my life without seeing the Magnum, the Ferrari, or even THE BLUE STEEL. People are always shocked to hear this and in some ways, I feel like I shouldn’t even bother now. Maybe it could be my thing. Well, I’d better decide soon because the Zoolander 2 screening is this upcoming Tuesday and I’VE GOT FREE PASSES! Just click HERE for those and then watch the trailer below. Omigod, we have to go, just to watch Benedict Cumberbatch play ALL!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “How to Be Single” On Me!

I saw the trailer for How to Be Single a few months ago and it made me laugh so hard that I immediately shared it with everyone I knew. Rebel Wilson is my Spirit Animal and I’m surprised by how much I dig Dakota Johnson. She was the only good thing about Fifty Shades of Grey, and she was fantastic in Black Mass. Unfortunately, everyone was too freaked out by Johnny Depp’s make-up to notice.

I guess How to Be Single is about a bunch of single women running around New York City. It’s like an updated Sex and the City, but without the designer shoes, and with LESLIE MANN. She was so adorable in The Other Woman, that she was actually hotter than Kate Upton. Don’t bother telling me I’m wrong about that, because I’M NOT. Now, I KNOW you want to go so click HERE to grab those free passes and then watch the trailer below. Oh my God, I really need to get drunk with Rebel Wilson!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Deadpool” On Me!

Can I tell you how ticked-off my 11-year-old is about NOT GETTING TO SEE Deadpool? She simply can’t believe that anyone would release an R-rated Marvel Movie, and though I sympathize with her…I love it.

According to the press release Ryan Reynolds plays “former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.” I don’t relish the idea of what happens to Ryan Reynolds’ pretty face, but this looks like loads of fun and GUESS WHO HAS FREE PASSES! The screening is February 12th and YES, there will be a line to get in so show up early. Click HERE for your passes, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Do it AWAY from the kids though because it, like the movie, IS RATED-R…which means they can’t see it. (evil laugh)
