Don’t Worry Baby – opening in theaters July 22, 2016

 

MOvie

Opening in select theaters across the country tomorrow is the dark comedy Don’t Worry Baby, written  and directed by Julian Branciforte.

Don’t Worry Baby stars John Magaro (CarolThe Big Short, Woody Allen’s Upcoming Series). Chris McDonald  (Happy GilmoreThelma and Louise), Dreama Walker (CBS’s The Good Wife), Tom Lipinski (USA Network’s Suits) and Talia Balsam (No Strings Attached, AMC’s Mad Men).

The film was filmed in the director’s actual Chinatown apartment. It was also filmed at other New York City locations including a pre-school owned by the director’s parents on the Upper East Side. All other locations (bars/restaurants/etc.) were owned by filmmakers’ friends and family.

Robert (Magaro) is a struggling artist/photographer. He doesn’t have the best relationship with his philandering father Harry (McDonald).

To make ends meet, Robert works at a daycare owned by his parents.

Robert’s mother in not around much. She is aware of her husband’s affairs, especially with younger women.

One such one night stand with a woman named Sara Beth resulted in a child, Mason. Robert has made arrangements for her to put her daughter (their daughter?) in their preschool.

There is just one small problem… Robert had a one night stand with Sara Beth too, the same week his father did. Meaning it’s very possible that he is Mason’s father – not Harry.

The trio agree to get a paternity test (Robert, Harry and Sara Beth). It will take a few weeks for the results to come back. In the mean time, each man has the opportunity to get to know Mason.

Who is Mason’s real father? Who would make the better father for Mason – struggling photographer Robert or the much older Harry who has a weakness for beautiful young women and prone to having affairs. Robert has also never been a father before, but at the same time, Harry is a father and didn’t exactly do a good job of it. There are “pros and cons” to both men.

DWB

To find out who is the father you’ll need to go see Don’t Worry Baby. Look for it in a theater near you.

This was a sweet movie.

When I saw the trailer I knew I had to see the film because I was curious to see who Mason’s father turned out to be.

Although classified as a “dark comedy,” I would consider this more of a “dramady” (part drama, part comedy).

Besides the obvious lesson learned in this film (don’t have one night stands and if you do make sure you use protection), I think the ultimate goal of the film is that that modern family is different than a traditional family – and there is NOTHING wrong with that. At least that was what I took away from the film.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, check out Don’t Worry Baby if it’s playing in a theater near you.

The film has a Facebook page in case you are interested in checking it out.

Here is the film’s trailer for your enjoyment.

Nine Lives – coming to a theater near you on August 5, 2016

 

NineLives-FinalPoster

Are you looking for the “Purr-fect” summer film? If so, you should check out Nine Lives which will be pouncing in a theater near you on August 5, 2016.

The film stars Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, Christopher Walkin, Robbie Amell, Malina Weissman and Cheryl Hines. 

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game.  His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date – the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But Tom’s workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his beautiful wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman).

Rebecca’s 11th birthday is here, and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he is without a gift and time is running out. His GPS directs him to a mystical pet store brimming with odd and exotic cats- where the store’s eccentric owner- Felix Perkins (Christopher Walken), presents him with a majestic tomcat, named Mr. Fuzzypants.

En route to present his daughter with her dream pet, a bizarre turn of events finds Tom trapped inside the body of Mr. Fuzzypants.  Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to life with an odd and stubborn cat, and his son David (Robbie Amell), steps up in ways Tom never expected.

If any hope exists of returning to his family as the husband and father they deserve, Tom will have to learn why he has been placed in this peculiar situation and the great lengths he must go to earn back his human existence.

The film reminds me of that classic film The Shaggy D.A., which was a film about a talking dog. It’s not often you find a film based on a talking cat.

Check out this special clip.

 

As a cat lover (we have five cats), I can’t wait to see the film. It looks like it will be very funny.

The film has partnered up with Tom the Talking Cat to create a fun app that readers might be interested in trying out.

Ever want to say something but you don’t know how? Download the Talking Tom app, press the ‪Nine Lives record button and share your second chance messages.

Check out this brief video that gives you more information about this fun, free app.

 

Talking Tom reminds me of a plush toy I reviewed a few years ago from a company called Cuddle Barn. Their Talking Tom toy looks a lot like the Talking Tom in the app (I wonder if it’s one on the same). You can read my review here (I also feature a video of Talking Tom in action).

I’m going to download the app and try it out for myself. It looks really cute (and it’s FREE!).

If you would like to learn more about the film you can visit the Official Site. In addition you can “like” Nine Lives on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter and Instagram. In addition you can follow the cat, Mr. Fuzzypants, on Instagram.

The official hashtag is #NineLives.

What do you think about the film? Do you think you’ll go and see it in theaters?

What about the app? Are you going to check it out?

Fandango is offering collectible The Secret Life of Pets gift cards (giveaway ends 7/31/16)

 

Movie

Hubby and I with our feet up (recliner chair) waiting to watch The Secret Life of Pets.

Have you had the opportunity to see The Secret Life of Pets yet? If not, I would recommend it. It’s a really cute movie. There are a few intense scenes that might not be good for very little children, but over all it’s a fun family movie.

My husband and I saw the movie last weekend. Our kids didn’t go with us because they are teenagers and are mortified at the idea of being seen at the mall with their parents. LOL! That’s not a problem for us. We consider it a “day date.”

I purchased our tickets online with Fandango. I am fortunate to have a few Fandango gift cards that I have been given over the years, so going to the movies doesn’t really cost us much (except anything we get from the concession stand).

Even if I didn’t have gift cards I would still buy my tickets from Fandango. It allows us to skip the ticket line because I can print the tickets at home and bring them with us. It saves us A LOT of time because sometimes ticket lines are very long. We literally just walk in and show the ticket collector our printed tickets and they let us inside.

Another perk about ordering online with Fandango is that we can see what seats are available at our local theater and select what seats we want. There is no more worries about having to sit apart or having to sit at ground level and have to look up the entire time to watch the movie (we did that once – we’ll never do that again).

Fandango has teamed up with The Secret Life of Pets to offer consumer collectible Fandango gift cards featuring the charming characters from the film.

1 2 3 4

Very cute! I like the character quotes featured on the gift cards too.

I have a feeling kids are going to want these cards to keep (after you use them of course). I see a lot of The Secret Life of Pets products in stores. I know it’s a popular movie.

Fandango gift cards make a wonderful gift. I for one appreciate receiving Fandango gift cards because I know my family can enjoy a great movie. Going to the movies is not always “do able,” because it can be expensive. Gifting someone a Fandango gift card helps them to see hit movies any time of the year.

Young and old alike can enjoy Fandango gift cards. You can go wrong with giving someone one of these gift cards. They are great for anyone because most people enjoy going to the movies. There are some movies you simply must see on the big screen to truly appreciate them.

If you would like more information about Fandango gift cards visit Fandango.com/Fandango-Gift-Cards. You can also check out the latest movies and show times at Fandango.com. They are also on social media (all of the links are found at the bottom of their website).

The Secret Live of Pets is currently playing in theaters across the country.

Check out this fun quiz on the Fandango website that tells you which Secret Life of Pets pet should belong to you.

IceAgeCC-Poster

Crashing into theaters this Friday is the latest installment in the Ice Age movie franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course.

Ice Age: Collision Course features all the beloved characters – Manny, Sid, Diego – as well as many new characters.

The film stars the voice talents of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Simon Pegg, Keke Palmer, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, Adam Devine, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Max Greenfield, Jessie J, Nick Offerman, Wanda Sykes, Stephanie Beatriz,  Michael Strahan,  Melissa Rauch and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World.  To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.

ICE AGE 5

Jesse Tyler Ferguson from the show Modern Family voices one of the new characters in the film, ShangriLlama. He looks like a very interesting character.

It’s nice to see Jennifer Lopez return as the voice of Shira. She seems like she’s very busy and always on the go-go-go. It’s nice that she can find the time to voice her character in the film. I’m sure her children, Max and Emme, appreciate it too.

ICE AGE 5

Check out this clip from the film.

 

The film looks really funny. We have seen all the other films in the franchise and have always enjoyed them.

I hope that one day Scat can FINALLY get his acorn. Poor little guy… he has yet to get his happy ending.

Happy 15th Anniversary Legally Blonde

 

LB MP

Are you familiar with the funny Reese Witherspoon comedy, Legally Blonde?

Today is the film’s 15 Anniversary. WOW! I can’t believe the film came out so long ago. My son was a year and a half old back then.

The film is still just as funny and entertaining as it was the first time I saw it.

If you have never seen the film, Legally Blonde is about a sorority girl Elle Woods (Witherspoon), who comes from a very well off family. She’s going to college for fashion and is hoping her boyfriend Warner will pop the question.

Warner has no intention of marrying Elle. He plans on going to law school and become a partner in a law firm and he feels like he needs to have a better, more educated, girlfriend by his side. He in turn breaks up with Elle.

Not willing to give up on Warner that easily, Elle has the crazy idea of going to Harvard Law School where Warner attends in hopes of winning him back. Little does she know at that time Warner has moved on and has a new fiancee.

LBSS

No one at Harvard Law School takes Elle seriously with her Barbie doll appearance and little Chihuahua Buster always in tow.

Elle manages to prove herself after all and ends up being selected as an intern to work with a law firm on a really big case. She ends up having to work along side Warner and his fiancee on the case.

Will she prove herself as a great lawyer? Will she win back Warner? You’ll just have to pick up a copy of the film to find out.

Elle had some pretty wardrobe ensembles throughout the film.

To help celebrate, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls created the below looks from Elle’s most notable outfits from the movie.

LB3

What do you think of these looks? Do you think T.J. Maxx/Marshalls did a good job re-creating them with pieces that can be found at T.J. Maxx/Marshall stores?

Which is your favorite look? I think the middle one is great for the summer and the top one is good look for both work and play during the summer. I think the bottom look would be better suited for back to school time.

Elle was also all about her shoes. I can tell you from experience that T.J. Maxx/Marshalls has a great shoe selection. I know this because my teenage daughter LOVES shoes and bags and we can’t go anywhere near a T.J Maxx and/or Marshalls store without her wanting to go in and check out the shoes and bags.

Here are just a few examples.

Elle would be proud. Personally I am a sneaker or barefoot kind of girl. I do think some of the styles shown above are really nice (I love the colors).

To find a TJ Maxx or Marshalls location near you visit TJMaxx.com and/or MarshallsOnline.com. Both brands can also be found on social media. Link are found on their websites.
