MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Can Kids See “Happy Death Day 2U?”

My kids and I loved the first Happy Death Day and were eagerly awaiting Part 2. It might sound strange that a family was excited about a scary Blumhouse flick, but Happy Death Day wasn’t your typical slasher fare. The Groundhog Day-meets-Scream concept-film managed to be scary (but not too scary) and funny. It was also rated PG-13 and therefore tame enough to share with older kids. We’ve watched it every time it’s been on cable since and have been counting the weeks to Happy Death Day 2U. We never expected it to be as good as the first and had no idea how they’d justify more repeated days, but we were still completely blindsided by the fact that Happy Death Day 2U Continue reading →

“Isn’t It Romantic” MOVIE REVIEW (& Parent Review)

Isn’t it Romantic stars Rebel Wilson as a woman who loathes Romantic Comedies, then conks her head and wakes up in one. There she finds a New York City that’s been coated in candy shell, and that men who previously didn’t notice her are suddenly smitten. She’s been given an updated version of everything, from her job to her clothes to apartment, and she now has a previously non-existent gay best-friend. She distrusts this alternate universe though, and tries desperately to return to the meaner, smellier New York of her home. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Fighting with My Family” EARLY & FOR FREE

Fighting with My Family stars Florence Pugh as a girl who’s born into a pro-wrestling family, then follows her dreams to join the WWE. If that sounds far-fetched to you, then you’ll be surprised to know that Fighting with My Family is based on a true story and 2012 documentary of the same name. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays himself but he worked behind the scenes as well, executive-producing while British actor/writer Stephan Merchant directed. There’s an excellent cast too, including Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, The Purge) and Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, Hacksaw Ridge) as an American WWE scout, who visits London in search of new talent. Wrestling fans already know how the story plays out, but the rest of us are in for some sweet and occasionally sad surprises. So, who wants to see Fighting with My Family EARLY and FOR FREE?

Rebel Wilson

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Isn’t It Romantic” EARLY & FOR FREE

I have been forced to watch a Fifty Shades of Grey movie the week before Valentine’s Day for three years in a freaking row! That’s why I am so thrilled the series is behind us and I can spend Valentine’s Day watching something OTHER than unsexy soft-porn, like Isn’t It Romantic! This one stars Rebel Wilson as an unlucky-in-love woman who hits her head and wakes up in a romantic comedy. Is it any good? I have no idea, but it won’t include two people faking their way through a Red Room and that’s all that matters to me! So, who wants to see Isn’t It Romantic EARLY and FOR FREE with me?

LEGO Movie

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” EARLY & FOR FREE

I remember how completely NOT interested I was in the first LEGO Movie. I even told my daughters to keep their expectations low because it was “probably going to be goofy.” Then The LEGO Movie was goofy, but in the most wonderful, fun-to-watch way! I’ve enjoyed every LEGO Movie that’s come out since (yes, even LEGO Ninjago) so I’m especially jazzed about The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. So, who wants to see it EARLY and FOR FREE with me?

Previewing February Movies (& Some Sundance Buzz) on “Good Morning Texas”

It’s been a quiet month for movies, but that’s going to change this weekend when February films start hitting the screen. I was on Good Morning Texas recently, telling everyone which films they should watch for and what to plan their Valentine’s Day around. Click HERE to watch the segment, then find tickets to your movie HERE:

Remember to check the FREE MOVIE PASSES page to see what I’m giving away next (I’ll have passes to see The Lego Movie 2 next week!) and take a minute to watch the trailer for They Shall Not Grow Old below. This movie opens February 1st, to celebrate the centennial of the end of WWI. It’s remarkable to think that the footage you’re looking at is over 100 years old!
