A WRINKLE IN TIME is now playing in theaters everywhere #WrinkleInTime

Now playing in a theater near you, A Wrinkle in Time is family fun for everyone. Nothing too scary for even the littlest theater-goers, an easy to follow plot, and a theme everyone can identify with. Meg misses her dad when he disappears one day, and will do anything to get him back. She has had a hard time fitting in since he left, and only finding him will make her feel like “everything is right with the universe” again. On the search for her father, she finds a new friend, a better relationship with the little brother she already adores, and a new understanding of herself.

Not much like the book, but a cute movie for the family, and visually beautiful. The kids in the movie were brilliant actors, and the three women “rescuers” and lights of the universe were diverse and interesting.

Director:

Ava DuVernay

Starring:

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa and introducing Storm Reid with Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine.

Synopsis:

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space,  examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

 

The Other F Word Series is Back With Season 2!

The Other F Word

Last year I shared with you about The Other F Word, an edgy comedy about a group of friends who find that the angst of raising kids may be nothing compared to the angst of starting over after they are grown.  The show, written and producer by Caytha Jentis, was met with so many rave reviews I’m thrilled they’ve just released Season 2! My only possible complaint is that it ended too soon but I loved being about to binge watch for free through Amazon streaming.

The Other F Word proves that we don’t have to be afraid of getting older – there’s nothing scary about “forty.” And these four friends certainly bring a fun, comedic perspective to the issues surrounding midlife for women. You’ll love the cast including Judy Gold, Steve Guttenberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Michael Boatman, Alysia Reiner and Nancy Giles. Plus, former Comedy Central EVP and comedian Judy Gold joins Jentis as an Executive Producer. The chemistry between these characters is brilliantly portrayed and highlights the importance of friendship at every age. With such an amazing group there’s no doubt Jentis has another hit season on her hands.

The Other F Word

Jentis will say it’s not a success that she achieved on her own, however, as she enlisting the help of some wonderful writers and contributors. While Caytha Jentis wrote the show, she had help from other moms behind the scenes and women entrepreneurs. One of the scenes was co-written by Emmy award-winning tv writer Judy Rothman Rofe who authored Neurotic Parent, while the musical within the series is written by the award-winning playwriting team Pam Weiler Grayson and Alice Jankell.

She also gave back to woman-owned businesses and when you watch The Other F Word, you’ll see many of these products featured: 10th Studio, peach, Adam & Eve Unbound Box, SheSpark, Pink Truck and much more. I love that! Head over to Amazon Prime Streaming and check out the show today. Together we will prove to Hollywood that midlife women matter and we are a demographic tired of ageism and sexism.

The Other F Word

As one Amazon reviewer wrote: “Humorous, realistic, and completely well cast series. Actors had great chemistry and it’s about time someone talked about the post mid-life crisis in a marriage dynamic and how life changes but get’s better!” And I agree – it’s about time! Click here to binge-watch (I mean check out) The Other F Word today absolutely free.

Have you see the movie “The Secret Life of Pets” yet? I took my son while it was still in theaters, and we both enjoyed it. I thought it was going to be another movie that you, as a parent, sat through because you love your kid- but it was super cute, and I even laughed out loud a few times. I’m all for shows and movies everyone can watch (and that go beyond simple “endurance” as a parent). If you’ve not seen this one yet- do. It’s fun. And it has a great message too, without being at all preachy.

It’s available in stores everywhere as of December 6, so you can go get your copy any time you want.  (It’s a great holiday gift, as well.) Here is a trailer of the movie, in case you haven’t seen any yet.

My son was eleted when the movie came- and he was even more excited when he saw it came with a Secret Life of Pets poster as well. He even got a hat and stickers- perfect for this holiday season. He (of course) immediately popped the movie in. We also watched it together over the weekend when daddy was around.

Neither he nor I had a favorite character, they were all fun. Max, of course, was great- but there would be no movie without Duke or Gidget, and Pops is too much. It’s hard to talk about why we love the characters without giving away the movie- best just to watch it. Another reason to get a copy of the movie is that The Secret Life of Pets DVD or Blue Ray comes with 3 Mini Movies as well as features nearly an hour of bonus content, including three hilarious mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions which debuted in theaters.

pet stickers

The main premise of the movie is “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” Find out what these pets are up to when their owners head out. The same people who created Despicable Me made this one, so you know it will be funny.

One of the reasons the movie was so funny? The all-star voice cast had to have a hand in it, I think.  This includes Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Steve Coogan, and Albert Brooks.

We received the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack Target Exclusive featuring 4 pages of decals. The combo pack comes with the Blu-ray,  DVD, and a Digital copy. Plus, you can decorate your room, car, office, laptop, or wall with 4 pages of decals featuring main characters and their funny personalities.

One of you can win a copy of your own- feel free to enter using the RC form below. Good luck! Ends Dec. 30, 2016.

We recently sat down for a family night in, and gave the movie a watch. My son had been wanting to see it. He loved it, and it was not as bad as I thought it would be (look, as an adult, not every kid movie is up my alley, ok? Let’s just be honest.) There were parts I was amused by, and even though it was coney, it was cute. He has watched it quite a few times. He has watched the movie a few times now- mostly with our pets.

While the movie didn’t get the best reviews with critics, I have to tell you it was better then I thought it was be. It wasn’t one of those “painful to watch” kid movies. My son really enjoyed it, and your kids will as well, if they are cat lovers. It was silly, it was schtick-y, it has all that physical humor kids like- it was cute.

The cats liked it as well- but how couldn’t she, right? They also loved all the cat goodies that 9 Lives sent for them to play with- so they can “get into the movie” themselves.

Too bad the bowls didn’t say “Mr. Fuzzypants” like the kitty in the movie  🙂 My son loved that name. See, the cheese- factor goes over super well with the kiddos, LOL.
