Charlize Theron

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Charlize Theron in “Tully” EARLY & FOR FREE

My kids are a little older and I occasionally see things that make me grateful for that.
Just today, I was enjoying a quiet walk by the lake when I came across a Mom who was screaming at four kids, all around three-years-old. She was furious and exhausted but, not matter what she said, those little monsters kept riding their trikes through the mud. A block past her was another Mom, who was trying to leave the park while her tiny daughter threw an impressive fit, flat on her back. I saw a woman at the mall an hour later, who’s pregnant belly was so big, it looked like she could burst and go flying around the Food Court, like a popped balloon.
The trailer for Tully also makes me so SO grateful that my kids are older.
Charlize Theron plays a Mom who’s just trying to get through those difficult early-years because…well, they can be kind of awful. Her brother surprises her with a night-nurse named Tully, who helps ease her around the tough spots. Yes, it’s a simple plot that doesn’t sound that intriguing, but watch the trailer below. If you can get through it without tearing up, then maybe your new-Mommy years were much easier than mine. If, on the other hand, it resonates with you the way it did with me, Continue reading →

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Is Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage” OK for Kids?

I simply can’t get to every movie. This time of year gets especially tough because of my oldest daughter’s birthday, which just happened to fall on the night of the Rampage screening. She was totally disinterested in this movie, so it came down to a choice between celebrating-my-daughter’s-birthday and seeing-The-Rock’s-new-movie.
You know the choice I had to make.
Fortunately, I have friends like Brooke, who DID want to see Rampage. She even offered to take her 11-year-old son AND to write a review for me. This is what Brooke had to say about Rampage: Continue reading →

Mommy Movie Review: Can Kids See “A Quiet Place”

Many parents wouldn’t consider taking their kids to a film that’s been called “the best horror movie in a couple of decades,” because they don’t want to traumatize their offspring.
Then there are people like me, whose children laugh at the scary movies of their youth. My oldest daughter rolled her eyes all the way through the first Poltergeist and wouldn’t even finish The Omen because it was “so dumb.” She shrugged at The Ring, describing it as “more weird than scary,” and decided The Sixth Sense was “too sad to be a proper horror film.”
Kids like HER simply deserve films like A Quiet Place. Continue reading →

Super Troopers 2

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Super Troopers 2” EARLY & FOR FREE

My husband and I have been together for over 20 years, and during that time, we’ve developed our own language. It’s the same English you’re familiar with, but peppered with film, TV and other cultural references from the past two decades. Some movies or TV shows get more play than others (specifically Inglourious Basterds, Fargo, Dumb and Dumber and both volumes of Kill Bill) but nothing gets quoted as much as the first Super Troopers. We probably work in “Meow” or “He can’t pull over any further” weekly, and if we order a drink, it’s always a “liter of Cola.” I even caught our daughters chugging syrup recently, and checked our DVDs to see if they’d been watching Super Troopers.
So, needless to say, we’re pretty pumped about Super Troopers 2. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that I don’t even care if this movie sucks. It’s like hanging out with your old college buddy, who makes you laugh just as much as he embarrasses you. If you agree and would like to see Super Troopers 2 EARLY and FOR FREE, Continue reading →

Amy Schumer

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “I Feel Pretty” EARLY & FOR FREE

There’s something about this movie that bums me out profoundly. Amy Schumer stars in I Feel Pretty, about a woman who hits her head and starts believing she’s the most beautiful and capable person in the world. She, in turn, finds the happiness and success she’s always dreamed of, but what will happen when she finds out her appearance never changed? If you’d like to know what happens next, Continue reading →

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: How Young is TOO Young for “Ready Player One”

This is a big one for me because my daughter is throwing a Ready Player One birthday party and inviting everyone in her 8th grade class. I’ve already gotten inquiries about it from those parents and some friends as well, so this is what you can expect from Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.
It’s based on the popular novel by Ernest Cline, but I’ve heard it doesn’t stay true to the source material. Ready Player One tells the story of Wade Watts, a lonely gamer in the year 2045. He plays a popular virtual reality game called The Oasis, where Wade and most everyone else in the future spends their time. The creator of The Oasis has died, but left a game in place that would leave it’s ownership in the hands of whoever wins. Wade must follow the clues that were left behind and save The Oasis from a new, dangerous threat.
This movie is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for “sci-fi action violence, bloody images, some suggestive material, partial nudity and language,” but what exactly does that mean? Continue reading →
