FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Life of the Party” EARLY & FOR FREE

God, I love Melissa McCarthy.
Even when she makes lousy movies, I still love her. Not that I think Life of the Party will be lousy. In fact, I’ve watched the trailer about 15 times and it still makes me laugh. Melissa co-wrote Life of the Party with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directs it. They also worked together on Tammy and The Boss, which aren’t my favorite Melissa McCarthy movies (that’d be Spy) but they’re still funny. Truth be told, I’d watch Melissa McCarthy in just about anything. Even The Nines, that super weird movie from 2007 where she played Ryan Reynolds’ wife. True story, and I love Melissa McCarthy so much that I even watched that. If you love her too and would like to see Life of the Party EARLY and FOR FREE, Continue reading →

Want to Be on a TV Show or Movie Being Shot in North Texas???

I was on Good Morning Texas this week, to update everyone on May’s big movie releases. We tried something new as well, and discussed all the films and TV shows that are filming in North Texas and how YOU could be on them. Well, you wouldn’t believe how many people have asked me about that since, so I decided to put all the links in one place to make it easier for everyone. Continue reading →

When to IGNORE Film Critics (Written by a Film Critic)

I should probably explain myself, before I get in trouble for that title.
Yes, there are plenty of times when you should consult your favorite Film Critic. If you are on the fence about a movie or can’t decide about taking your kid to see it, then YES! Definitely see what they have to say. You should also check with Film Critics to find out about the NEW movies you should watch for (Have you seen Get Out yet? What the HELL are you waiting for???).
You SHOULD NOT, however, let a Film Critic change your mind about seeing a movie you’re excited about.
Case in point: Beauty and the Beast. Continue reading →

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Is the New “Ghostbusters” OK for Kids? More Importantly, Is It GOOD?

I got to see the new Ghostbusters with my kids last night, and with Andrea, an exchange student visiting from Italy. This is our review but there IS something I forgot to mention. If you see the new Ghostbusters, DEFINITELY pay the extra money to see it in 3D. I promise it’s worth it! Check out our podcast below to find out what the kids thought, or just to hear Andrea’s adorable accent!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See the New “Ghostbusters” ON ME!

Everyone’s been fussing about this Ghostbusters since plans for a new one were announced. I don’t know why people got so worked up, but I never considered the Ghostbusters from 1984 a sacred cow to begin with. It’s hard to complain about any movie you see FOR FREE though, which is why I’m hooking you up with these. If you’d like to see the new Ghostbusters, just click HERE to grab your passes, then watch the trailer below. Sure it’s one of the most HATED movie trailers on Youtube. That doesn’t mean it HAS to be bad, right?

The “Plus-Size” ISSUE: Why Are Women So Hard to Swallow? (Is It Our Big Bones?)

Glamour Magazine probably didn’t mean to start a riot when they published their Plus-Size Issue, but that’s what happened. It was supposed to be a publication for women, sizes 12 and up, that made them feel empowered and accepted. Glamour stumbled into a minefield though, when it listed it’s favorite Plus-Size Women. Imagine Amy Schumer’s surprise when she found her self-proclaimed size-6 name on that list. Schumer then stepped into a minefield of her own when she called out Glamour for including her, and enraged a world full of plus-size women in the process.

So now, pretty much everyone is pissed off.

Every day, I find another article circling social media that bashes Amy Schumer for disrespecting plus-size women. I understand why everyone is mad at her, but I also understand why Amy was offended in the first place. We ALL might understand it better if we just renamed Glamour’s Plus Size Issue, and called it the Big Girl Issue. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Boss” Turns Girl Scouts Into Street Thugs (in a GOOD way)

I really wanted to like The Boss. I promise I tried.

There were even a few things I LOVED about it, like the way it called out a certain cookie-selling group for being nothing but a corporation. The “Daffodils” in The Boss were supposedly empowering girls, but they were really just using them for child labor. The “Darnell Darlings” actually helped the girls instead, by selling brownies to start their own college funds.

I also loved how the “Darnell Darlings” weren’t portrayed as little princesses, but instead as foul-mouthed thugs. I have two little girls of my own, so I loved watching the “Darlings” throw down in an Anchorman-style street fight. (This probably says horrible things about my parenting skills.)

I am also a huge Melissa McCarthy fan and will cut her slack when most critics won’t, but this time, I just can’t. Continue reading →

PODCAST: Boozy Movies Reviews “Spy” & Fights Over Jude Law’s Bald Spot

Well, look at that! We went and made a VIDEO this week instead of the usual podcast. My dear friend Steven Visneau, who is without a doubt THE MOST TALENTED photographer I know, said “Why don’t you let me film that movie review for you?” I think he (and possibly everyone else) was getting tired of hearing us scream into my tiny mic during the podcast. Whatever the reason, we have an actual YouTube video for you to watch this week. Sadly, Sybil Summers & Richie Whitt couldn’t join us because…well, you’ll see why. Enjoy!

PODCAST: Boozy Movies Reviews “San Andreas” and Ponders What ‘CGI’ Stands For

I saw San Andreas last night with Richie Whitt and Rebekah Black, then we had pink, fluffy cocktails and chatted about it. Sybil Summers didn’t join us this week because she thought it looked like a stupid movie. SHE WAS WRONG!

You could be like Sybil and assume the worst, or you could listen to our podcast and find out for sure.

Make sure you grab free passes to see Melissa McCarthy in Spy with us NEXT week. You can do that by clicking HERE. Richie Whitt assumes THAT ONE will be bad but you know what happens when you ASSUME things, right? You make an Ass-Hat…or something.

Special thanks to our wonderful sponsors Chopshop Sports Garage, Kenichi, Three Squares, and Shooters Dallas.

Man, it has been a banner week for Melissa McCarthy. First, she was all over the news for schooling a film critic who said horrible things about her. THEN she showed up to get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame looking like this:
