MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW- “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie”

My youngest daughter actually screamed when we left for school this morning. She was lugging her backpack to the car when a neighborhood kid pedaled past us on his bike. This guy must already be out of school because he was wearing swim trunks and flip flops, and whistled a happy tune as he whizzed past us. It was simply too much for Lucy, who has a week left of school, so she understandably screamed.
It’s this utter exhaustion and school-malaise that will speak to kids who see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” EARLY & FOR FREE

Is it strange that I read the Captain Underpants books long before I had kids?
My friend (and former 102.1 the Edge co-worker) Jessie Jessup introduced me to these stories about kids who turn their principal into a superhero years ago. I still have a few dog-eared copies left, which is why I was thrilled (and a little apprehensive) when I heard that Dreamworks was making a movie out of them.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie stars Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold. Ed Helms voices their cantankerous principal, Mr. Krupp who eventually becomes Captain Underpants. Yes, I know all of this sounds ridiculous but that’s exactly WHY the books were so awesome and why the movie just might be.
So, want to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Mommy-Movie-Review: “The Secret Life of Pets” Looks Strangely Familiar

Have you noticed that Kids’ Movies are starting to look like each other? Maybe it’s because they’re all made by the same studios, writers, and animators, but the characters and storylines are becoming interchangeable. The Secret Life of Pets comes from Illumination Entertainment, the same people who did The Lorax and Despicable Me. It looks so familiar, you’ll be waiting for a Minion to pop up. That doesn’t mean it isn’t also extremely fun to watch. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Central Intelligence” On ME!

The ads for Central Intelligence say that sometimes you need a little Hart and a BIG Johnson. Makes you wonder if they didn’t just make the whole movie around that joke, right?

Well, the pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson certainly has fans excited, and so does the trailer featuring a pudgy, teenage version of “The Rock.” That might be worth the ticket price alone but lucky for us, we don’t have to pay for tickets! Just click HERE to snag your Central Intelligence passes, then watch the trailer again. And remember to get to the theater early! These will get you in for free but you’ll still need to get there in time to save your seat.

Dishing the 2016 Oscars on “Good Morning Texas”

I had so much fun today on Good Morning Texas! It felt like a high school reunion because I got to see TWO former co-workers; Victoria Snee and Steve Kemble. Victoria and I went to each other’s weddings and the last time Steve and I were together, this happened:

Yes, I was dressed as him.

Today we put on our fanciest gear and hashed out the 2016 Oscars. Well, WE got dressed up. Steve Kemble wears that jacket to walk his dog. Click HERE to see our Favorite Moments from the 2016 Oscars and to watch everyone tear into Heidi Klum’s gown. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Belk at Galleria Dallas for providing my dress. I love that thing so much I might not take it back!

The (un)Official Drinking Game of the 2016 Oscars

The 2016 Oscars will air this Sunday at 7:30 Central and the world is can barely contain it’s excitement!

Okay, that’s not really true. Most people are apathetic about this year’s nominees and the #OscarSoWhite controversy threw even more cold water on everything. I thought I’d spice things up with a good old-fashioned Oscars Drinking Game, so we’d have something to do when we weren’t making fun of everyone’s gowns and make-up choices. Before we get good and drunk though, I think we should address the old, white elephant in the room with our very first rule.

RULE #1: Take a shot of plain water anytime emcee Chris Rock makes a joke about the lack of diversity amongst Oscar voters and nominees. I suspect he’ll be at it all night, so this would be a good opportunity to hydrate. Continue reading →

OUT & ABOUT on “Good Morning Texas”

I taped this “Out & About” segment for Good Morning Texas when I was there last week (which explains why I’m wearing the same clothes). Honestly, I had NO IDEA what to do with my hands. You can tell, can’t you? I asked the cameraman what I should do with them and he looked over the rims of his glasses at me, like I’d just blown a booger onto his shoe. Maybe I’ll try holding random objects each week, like a Rubix Cube or some My Little Pony figurines, just to keep my hands busy. If you’d like to watch this segment, you can do so by clicking HERE.

One of the coolest things happening this week will be Wednesday night when Michael McDonald comes to town. My favorite Michael McDonald is the one who shows up occasionally on Family Guy, like this:

The REAL Michael McDonald is playing a show at the House of Blues Wednesday night to raise money for OPERATION Finally Home. It’s an organization that builds homes for sick or wounded veterans. They hope to raise enough money from this concert to build two more houses. Click HERE for more details or to buy tickets.

I need to say a quick THANK YOU to Veecaravan for always providing me with the best accessories. They’re having a Pop-Up Shop in a few weeks so make sure you check it out. Personally, I’m snagging more kaftans because they’re gorgeous but feel like you’re wearing pajamas in public, which is what I’d prefer to do anyhow. Click HERE to see what else they’ll be selling.

MOVIE REVIEW (PODCAST): Get Drunk & Watch “Get Hard”

We were REALLY excited about taping this podcast because we hadn’t seen each other in weeks. Maybe that’s why everything went south so fast. Maybe that’s why we drank more and cussed more and went places that we NEVER should have gone. Whatever the reason, it resulted in our FILTHIEST Wine ‘N Film Critics to date. Continue reading →
