For 18 years, Madeline “Maddy” Whittier has not left her house because she has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).  SCID means her immune system is extremely weak and she is allergic to everything.  She lives in a home where her clothes are irradiated, special air is pumped in, and only 3 people are allowed in (Dr. Whittier – her mother, Nurse Carla, Rosa – Carla’s daughter).  She attends an architecture school online and fantasies about being in the ocean.  One day she looks out the window and sees Olly and his family moving in next door.  They exchange a brief wave but both are interested.  After “silent movie” flirting with the help of a Bundt cake, Olly gives his number to Maddy.  As they text and talk, Maddy pictures them being face to face.  She begs Carla to let her meet Olly in person.  She promises not to touch or kiss him and to stay far away.  At first, Clara says no but later relents.  The two have an instant attraction but keep their distance.  However, when Dr. Whittier finds out, Carla is fired and Maddy gets sick.  Maddy is given a new nurse and put on full lockdown.  Maddy adheres to the rules until she sees Olly’s father hit him.  She runs outside to protect him, but he forces her to go back in.  Later Maddy realizes she was outside and never got to enjoy it.  Now she wants more.  With a credit card, a plane ticket, and Olly by her side, her life will open up to the world and some hard truths.

Based on the novel, Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon, this romance will make you want to read the book (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).   Not because the movie is bad, but because you want to read about what was left out.  It was so good you want to know more about each character.  The most special moments is when they are texting or talking on the phone, but Maddy is imagining them face to face with a special companion in the room.  Also, when they are 100% alone, the two speak, but the subtext is given for what they are thinking is so witty.   The two actors have instant chemistry.  Also, you feel as if you are seeing things for the first time like Maddy.  You are amazed by the ocean, cars, and planes.   This is one to see at matinee prices and in the theater.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

Emily was fired from her job but she doesn’t care because Mike’s (her boyfriend) band is about to take off. She knows the money will pour in for them. But later that day, Mike breaks up with her for 2 reasons. One, she has no ambition in life and two, he wants groupies. Heartbroken, Emily changes her Facebook status to single and her mother Linda is quick to respond, on her wall where everyone can see. She goes to her mother’s home for the night. And after arguing with her brother Jeffrey and not having a friend to go with, she finds her mom’s old scrapbook. Inside the scrapbook are pictures, concert tickets, and plane tickets. She decides to take her mom to Ecuador for a girls trip so her mom can be fun again. On the first day, Emily and Linda meet Ruth and Barb, both are retired special ops. They warn the two to be careful. Of course, Linda listens with confirmation, while Emily ignores them. Then Emily goes to the bar and meets James. He is adventurous and invites her out. They have so much fun, he invites Emily on an outing the next morning. Stumbling drunk, Emily invites her mother. The 3 start off having a good time, but when Emily and Linda are kidnapped and held for ransom, they must learn to get along and get help

Ok, it’s honestly better than expected. There are some genuine laughs and OMG moments. But as the opening credits reveal, these women are more dangerous than their own kidnappers. There are gross moments to offset the sappy ones and funny moments to offset the serious ones. You will not forget the moment with the tapeworm. While this isn’t best work for Amy or Goldie, it’s still a fun time at the movies. If your mom can handle sex humor, breast, an adult magazine, and death, this is the movie. But only for the matinee price.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

Oh, that’s nice. I didn’t know they had a daycare program at this hotel – Linda
