While sitting in a courtroom, Melinda is staring daggers at Diana, her ex’s new fiance.  After harassing them for months, the judge decides to strengthen their current restraining order and ordering her to go to anger management counseling.  The judge hopes this will bring new light to Melinda’s circumstance and calm the rage inside of her.  As she sits in the counselor’s office, she recounts meeting, loving, and hating her ex Robert.  Through an affair, a car crash, and lost potential, she has stood by his side.  She was there for every step up and every downfall.  She feels she has sacrificed her body, money, and mind for this relationship.  So when Robert reaps the rewards after years of struggle, she believes she is due.  However, one decision leaves Melinda out in the cold and Diana by his side.

Acrimony is told in 6 chapters (Acrimoney, Sunder, Revail, Bewail, Deranged, and Inexorable).  So, get ready to talk to the screen because you are furious with every decision Melinda makes in each chapter.  She states that her rage is slow and when she erupts, she is 100% dangerous.  She makes this evident at the very beginning of their relationship, but Robert stays.  Robert has a wandering eye with empty pockets and his hand out.  However, he makes this know at the beginning of the relationship, but Melinda stays.  Unlike most relationship movies, this is a movie where everyone is wrong.  Even when they both try to get it right, it’s at the wrong time.  This is one to watch and discuss.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

You can’t negotiate with crazy – Diana

Sorry, at least I didn’t break anything this time – Robert

That’s like asking if I’m entitled to feeling hungry – Melinda

Lisa (single mom of Julie), Mitchell (helicopter, sports dad of Kayla), and Hunter (absentee father of Sam) met on their daughters’ first day of school.  Their daughters became instant friends, so they tried to be friends too.  Twelve years later, it’s the girls’ prom night.  Even though Sam, Julie, and Kayla have remained friends, the parents have not.  Hunter left after his scandalous divorce.  Lisa has spent more time with her daughter before she heads to college; leaving Mitchell in the cold.  Lisa put together a party before the prom that puts all 3 parents in the same space.  They have some awkward conversations but remain pleasant.  Just when Mitchell and Hunter are about to leave, Lisa sees the girls’ text on Julie’s computer.  Hunter is able to decipher from the emojis that the girls have a sex pact.  While Hunter doesn’t care, Lisa and Mitchell want to end this pact.  Lisa and Mitchell head to the prom to intercept the girls but Hunter is trying to stop them.  This will truly be an unforgettable prom night.

This movie is a mix of Superbad and Bad Moms (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  While each parent is trying to hold on to their “little” girl, they are doing it for different reasons.  Julie has separation anxiety, Mitchell doesn’t want to give up his jock, and Hunter wants to mend his relationship.  And each girl has a reason to lose her virginity.  Julie is in love, Kayla just wants to do it, and Sam is questioning her sexuality.  While the movie’s premise seems to be about losing your virginity on prom night, it’s more about the complicated relationships between parents and daughters in today’s society.  However, it does not shove the sappiness or feminism down your throat.  It provides a good amount of laughs and raunchy fun.  Now be warned, some of the jokes fall flat, like dad jokes, but you will laugh.  So go and have fun at a crazy matinee movie.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

It’s not really a dress, the middle’s missing – Mitchell

Let’s say the chef ate something – Kayla

Caroline “Line” Found is the captain and spirit of the West High School Women’s Championship Volleyball team.  Even with her shy best friend and teammate is Kelley, Line can make friends with any and every one.  Their coach Kathy knows that 1st-time champions are a dime a dozen, but 2nd-time champions are rare.  Especially in a row.  Kathy tells the team their championship was last year and no longer counts.  They need to focus on this year.  Even though they lose their first meet and her mother Evelyn is dying, Line keeps her team in great spirits.  Without her father’s knowledge, Line buys a motorbike and hides it from him.  After a team party, Line car battery dies and she takes her motorbike to visit her mom in the hospital.  Within hours, police are at Mr. Found’s door telling him his youngest child has died.  Before he can truly grieve, he loses his wife too.  The team’s heart is broken and they can’t play.  So they lose or forfeit games.  Kathy looks towards Kelley to get the teams spirit up.  After tryouts, Kelley is chosen as the captain, and they decide to not only play but go after the championship.  To get the champions after their losing streak, they have to win 15 games.  And they only have 15 left.  They will need to Live Like Line in order to be two-time champs.

This is an instant tear jerker.  With the constant threat of losing her mother, it’s powerful to see Line remain strong.  But the strength permeated to everyone who knew her after she died.  It inspired each one to “Live Like Line”.  It’s easy to see how this could have been a story of dual loss but it becomes a story of inspiration.  These young women and Mr. Line come together to honor Line by leaving the legacy she dreamed of before she passed.  And while the credits roll, you will see the defining moments in the film through video of the real moments.  As the fans where T-shirts and sing Sweet Caroline for their fallen player, Line and Evelyn will continue to live on in their hearts and yours (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Make sure your teen sees this film.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

That last announcement, well, is sucked – Kelley

Rey is now face-to-face with the legendary Luke Skywalker.  She wants to be trained in the ways of the Jedi and bring him back to Leia & the Resistance.  He has no interest in training another Jedi and thinks it should end.  He wants to stay on his island and enjoy the simple life, without the force.  However, while Rey is with Luke, she realized she can connect to Kylo’s mind.  Kylo tells her she doesn’t know the truth about Luke.  She must ask him why he decided to give up the ways of the Jedi.  Only then will she see the truth about Luke Skywalker and join Kylo.  In space, Finn has just woken up to learn the Resistance is under attack.  They are down to their last ship and can’t run for two reasons.  First, they are low on fuel and can travel light speed one more time.  Second, the First Order can track them through light speed.  The Resistance wants to abandon ship and find safety.  However, Finn and Rose (a new friend that stunned him) come up with a plan to jam the tracker and give the Resistance time to escape.  But first, they have to break into the biometric scanner so the ship won’t detect them on board.  Maz tells them they need a code breaker on Canto Bight.  Finn must stop the tracking device so Rey will have a ship to come home to after her training is done.  With everyone’s plan in place, the Resistance will need to come together to escape the deadly clutches of the First Order.

Visually, this is an amazing, beautifully shot movie.  The scene of Rey and Luke on Ahch-To are stunning.  Also, the battle scene on Crait was enhanced with an effect where the salt became red if it was disturbed by movement.  It was the exclamation point the scene needed.  While this movie offered a lot of “hold your breath”, cheering, and crying moments, it still felt too long.  Also, Luke give you the feeling of being Mei Pei instead of a reluctant Jedi (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  You sit waiting for the real Luke to come back.  As this happens, you find yourself getting bored.  This movie could’ve been shorter and had the same impact.  So, definitely see it in Dolby.  When a ship gets hit, your chair will shake.  Although 3D is nice, it’s not a necessity.  While this is not the best of the Star Wars franchise, it’s not the worst (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

You and your friends are doomed – Holdo

I can’t feel my tongue – Finn

I don’t think they like me – Rey

I can’t imagine why – Luke Skywalker

Ask him – Kylo Ren

I know, I changed my hair – Leia

A young calf named Ferdinand lives at Casa Del Torro and, unlike the other bulls, he doesn’t want to fight.  He wants to snell the flowers and care for others.  His father tells Ferdinand his wants are noble.  But they are bulls and one day he has to fight.  His father is one of the best bulls in the business and is usually picked by the Matador.  After a match, Ferdinand’s dad does not come home.  In shock, Ferdinand escapes and catches a train.  He jumps off the train, runs, stumbles, and is knocked unconscious.  He wakes up in a barn and is approached by Nina.  He smells her flower in her hair and instantly becomes her pet.  She promises to never hurt him and never make him fight.  Ferdinand lives, sleeps, and eats with young Nina.  They go to the Flower Festival each year but this year Ferdinand can’t go.  Juan, Nina’s father, tells her Ferdinand is a full grown bull, not a calf.  People in town will not understand that he is gentle and sweet.  So, Nina, Juan, and Paco the dog go to the festival.  Even though Ferdinand is given every holy sign not to go, he does anyway.  After a chance of clumsy events, Ferdinand is mistaken for an angry, baby-eating bull and is taken away, back to Casa del Toro.  When Ferdinand learns the truth about bullfighting, he knows he must escape and get back to Nina or he will face the Matador in the ring.

Based on the book Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, this is a funny light-hearted comedy about tough events (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Now, they never say the word “die” or “death” but it is implied.  So be prepared for the younger children to asks “what happened”.  Out of respect for the culture, they never display the bullfighters as good or bad, they are just a part of the plot to help move the story along.  Ferdinand isn’t trying to run from the fighter, but the fight itself.  He doesn’t want to be a fighting bull, just Nina’s pet.  One thing is painstakingly clear, the amount of time the animators spent studying Madrid’s city, farmland, and Matador traditions.  The backdrops and costumes are some of the most amazing in animation.  You will want to find out if these places are real and if you can go.  Stay past the first set of credits and 3D is not necessary.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

Hey, I thought I was the good boy – Paco

A+ on the flank. Mommy like that. Mommy like that – Lupe

You’re either a fighter or meat. Later meat – Valiente

Think thin – Ferdinand

Brad and Dusty are making the co-dad relationship work.  But they are dealing with co-parenting issues like kids leaving things at one parent’s house, parents buying the same gift, and separate Christmases.  However when Megan stands up in front of her entire school and says she hates separate Christmases, Brad and Dusty decide to have one Christmas together.  Then, the phone rings.  Kurt, Dusty’s father, is coming for Christmas.  Kurt has been unavailable for Dusty’s biggest moments and it’s driven a wedge in their relationship.  Dusty is not happy about his father’s arrival but Brad is ecstatic.  Brad realizes that their fathers will land at the same airport at the same time and he can’t wait to meet Kurt.  Kurt arrives and has nothing but shady comments to give.  Brad’s dad Don arrives with hugs and kisses for everyone.  Kurt believes that all the dads are playing nice and harbor deep resentment.  He will do anything to expose it.  So when Brad and Dusty tell them their plans for a “Together Christmas”, Kurt rents a cabin for both families.  He plans to pick everyone apart.  Starting with Dusty.

The sequel to Daddy’s Home, this movie adds more dads but keeps the same amount of laughs and heart.  Luckily, the story is different.  While the first movie was developing respect among parents and step-parents.  This movie is about harboring emotions among fathers and sons as well as step-parents. If you are seeing this movie for John Cena, please be advised he is only in the last 30 minutes of the film.  Most of the film revolves around the 4 other men.  The subplot is the 4 men giving Dylan dating advice while stopping Adrianna’s influence on Megan.  If you have a child younger than 13, it will get a little awkward during some of the jokes.  The rest are ok.  If you are a fan of the 1st, see this movie at matinee price.  And be ready for a new dad in the picture!

I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars

Leather pants and side boob, that’s perfect for a school event – Sara

You’re leaving – Adrianna

Brad, you don’t know what you are talking about so shut your fat hole – Dusty

World famous detective Hercule Poirot just finished a case at The Wailing Wall and wants to take a vacation.  Just as he is planning to relax, he gets a new case from London and must return.  Poirot’s friend Bouc (director of the Orient Express) offers him a ride on the full train.  During a dessert service, Poirot is approached by Samuell Ratchett.  Ratchett has received several death threats and wants to hire Poirot as his bodyguard.  During the night, Poirot sees someone running in a red robe and hears noises coming from Ratchett’s room.  The butler knocks on the door, hears “It’s nothing”, and walks away.  Poirot goes to his room and sleeps.  Later an avalanche, the train derails and leaves them all stranded together.  The butler knocks on everyone’s door but when Ratchett doesn’t answer, Poirot opened the door.  Inside Ratchett is dead with 12 stab wounds to the chest.  Poirot finds a partially destroyed note, a bloody handkerchief with the letter “H” on it, and a cup of barbital drugged coffee.  Poirot must discover the killer before the train is back on the tracks.

Based on the novel Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, this movie has to be watched twice (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  There is so much going on with so many characters, it’s hard to keep up.  While telling a grim tale, it does provide a few laughs at the human condition.  You feel an urge to solve the mystery along with Poirot.  This movie allows you to come up with your own theories as Poirot questions each suspect.  But be warned this movie DOES follow the book; no new suspects, plots, or murders are given.  The director, Kenneth Branagh, must be applauded for his use of continuous shots as Poirot enters and leaves the train.  Also, some scenes are shot from above, allowing the audience to be a fly on the wall or ceiling.  Seeing the behind the scene and the director’s commentary on this movie will be amazing.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Order me the fish – Princess Dragomiroff

Vice is where the devil finds his darling – Pilar Estravados

The Wrong Crush – Review

The Wrong Crush – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes

The Wrong Crush

Two years after being rushed to a hospital after a fatal car crash, Amelia is trying hard to turn her life around. She is getting good grades in school, a star athlete, and stop drinking. She needs to stay on the straight and narrow to stay on probation and go to college. While her friend Lauren and her boyfriend Scott believe in the new Amelia, her mother Tracy does not. Tracy believes that her daughter will go back to her old ways and become self-destructive again. So when Amelia comes to Tracy’s job to report a strange person outside their home, Tracy believes she is just trying to get attention. Mr. and Mrs. Hessler also believe Amelia is a bad seed. They blame Amelia for their daughter Joy dying 2 years ago in the same car crash that sent Amelia to the hospital. Amelia tries to explain that she loved Joy and reminds them that she has a restraining order against them. The Hesslers leaves but warns they would be watching for her to slip. Now Amelia worries that they are the ones she saw outside her home. Amelia’s self-help group tells her to be strong and wait for Tracy and Mr. & Mrs. Hessler to come around. With everything going good, Amelia’s sobriety is tested when she consistently battles with her mom, her boyfriend, and Joy’s parents. But she meets a new guy in school, Jake, who also is in her support group, she makes a connection. She talks to Jake for support and tries to get a handle on things when her boyfriend is arrested for drug possession. She feels trapped, confused, alone, and watched. She will soon learn that crushes come from all directions, but who can she trust?

Great job Lifetime!!!! This suspense thriller does not follow the normal structure of stalking and leaves you with plenty of surprising moments to keep you engaged. Amelia isn’t the typical teen ignoring her mother’s warnings. And Tracy is the normal mom fighting from the beginning to the end. Amelia’s attempts at change are admirable and she never falls off the wagon even with the toughest adversity testing her resolve. Now be forewarned, you may be able to pick out who the stalker is, but not why that person is stalking Amelia. The truth will blow your mind. It is a good twist to what could have been an ordinary Lifetime stalker story. Give this movie your full attention and a glass of wine.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

That would be wonderful. I could use all the support I can get – Amelia

So why are you here – Tracy

It’s fine. I was just using that as an ice breaker – Jake

Well you can always stay over – Scott

Don’t you dare cry – Mrs. Hessler

Yeah, we’re doing this – Joy

You’re allowed to be angry at her. You are not allowed to give up on her – Gwen

Tour de Pharmacy – Review

Tour de Pharmacy – HBO – 45 minutes

Tour de Pharmacy

In 1982, 170 cyclists raced in the Tour de France. Everything was going well until JuJu Peppi flirted with a girl and caused a huge crash; a “fight” started on the cycle path. After the fight, the police found a water bottle containing amphetamines and needles was found. After an investigation, only 5 riders were allowed to race.  Not because they weren’t on drugs, but because they didn’t pay bribe money.

  1. JuJu – won the race last year
  2. Slim – wants to be the first black anything
  3. Gustav – gained 200 pounds of muscle in a year
  4. Adrian – hiding the fact she is a woman
  5. Marty – an African hated by Africans

This race will be the longest and most controversial in the Tour’s history.

This mockumentary follows the same humor of 7 Days in Hell.  They took a serious and real issue and give the audience something at which to laugh.  You will watch this movie with one of three reactions: Confusion, Shock, or Laughter.  This humor may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the actor portrayals are.  They have younger versions of the actors in “clips” and older version of the actors in the “interview”.  And the older actors either wear the same still wig or article of clothing as their younger counterparts.  The cameo from Lance Armstrong proves he can laugh at a situation that exposed him.  This is one to DVR and watch when you have the time, but not around children.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

The shaving of legs. I haven’t done this before – Adrian

I bless the rains down in Africa – Marty

It was like a pistachio nut in a dirty birds nest – Lance

Nobody asks me if I am cheating on my wife because I am – Ditmar

Yep. Excuse me for one moment, I need to see some over there – Slim

How do you beat a man on drugs if your not on drugs – JuJu

It is Gatorade. I will drink it now – Gustav

Kate and Maura Ellis are loving, fun, and different sisters.  Then, they are blindsided because their parents decide to sell their childhood home and give the girls 24 hours to get their stuff.  After reminiscing, the girls meet the future owners (whom the girls hate) and decide to throw a huge party.  However, this time the girls switch roles.  The safe sister, Maura, will cut loose and get crazy.  The party sister, Kate, will sit back and take care of everyone.  And as the party ensues Kate’s secrets, past classmates, drug dealers, and Maura’s secrets collide.

This movie is a great laugh-a-minute comedy.  It mixes Pitch Perfect, Bridesmaids, and Project X into one big party.  With most Tina and Amy movies, Sisters is a SNL reunion with Maya Rudolph and Rachel Dratch. Like in Trainwreck, John Cena knocks it over the ropes as Pazuzu, the drug dealer with an interesting safe word.  Its easy to miss a joke because you are laughing so hard at the last one. This is not a chick flick, but a pure comedy and a great date movie.  There is about 10 minutes of mushiness but the laughs are still there.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Brad, after 6 months of marriage to Sara, has finally gotten her kids, Megan and Dylan, to warm up to him.  Being a dad is extremely important to Brad because he can’t have children.  Brad has got being a step-dad down to a science, when a phone call changes everything.  Megan and Dylan’s father, Dusty, is coming to visit.  Brad a nice, fun, smooth jazz radio executive is instantly insecure when strong, motorcycle-riding Dusty is in town.  Soon, these two are having a “Dad-off”.  Brad is trying to keep his step kids love and his wife happy; and Dusty is trying to get his family back and prove he can be a dad.

If you want to sit back and have a laugh riot … go see Sisters.  This movie will make you have a light chuckle … like when you text LOL.  You don’t really laugh out loud … but you know you should have.  Now, the end is fun and interesting twist but not enough to see the movie in theaters.  There are two things save this movie.  First, the chemistry between Mark and Will.  They are a great pair that feed off each other.  Second, they make a life ruining fight into a battle that requires a unique two step.
