We all like a good laugh, so I’m sharing my take on the 3 movies I’ve seen this year, and thus, you should add to your own collection of BluRays!
How to be single
Ok, so who doesn’t love Fat Amy? (If you haven’t seen Pitch Perfect, then this reference is lost on you.) This movie got 3 out of 5 stars and I think that’s fair. It was a great feel good type of chick flick – one to watch with your girlfriends. The movie follows the lives of four women – two of them sisters. One girl – Fat Amy – is the life of the party. She likes to drink and sleep with random men which offer multiple ‘morning after’ moments. Then there’s the girl who broke up with her boyfriend to ‘find herself’ – she also has her share of male friends as she goes through this journey. Then we have her sister, who is a doctor and actually wants to be a mother but her primarily problem is that she doesn’t have a man. The last girl hopelessly looks for love and unfortunately meets the wrong guys throughout the entire movie. I hope that’s not too much info for you… I tried to keep it as high level as possible!
A 4 out of 5 stars type of flick with Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. The plot is Robert becomes the Intern for a highly successful businesswoman, Anne. The relationship is weird to start off, but then they eventually form a bond (who knew that was going to happen?). It starts out with Mr. De Niro being bored with his job and offers to do pretty much anything to keep busy at work. He becomes the office hero because he’s super friendly and helpful and even more so when Anne starts trusting him. Her problem is that she’s being underestimated at work by her superiors while he’s a widower and needs to fill that gap in his life. Throw in some sidekicks for added comedic relief and you have a decent, light-hearted, will remind you about determination and helping others out, flick! I’d say this is a great family movie that you could pop in during Family Night!
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey scored 3 out of 5 for this one. The story is about two sisters who go back home because their parents are selling the house they grew up in. In an attempt to relive their younger years, they throw a party which includes their former high school classmates, and of course only laughter ensues. I am personally a huge fan of theirs, so I definitely enjoyed this one, maybe even more so than others… it also features other Saturday Night Live Alumnus including Mya Rudolph who is another comedic genius. It follows the women through their woes back then and now, which of course includes cattiness and some slapstick humour. And just like any movie, it sees the two women resolve their issues by the time the credits start rolling. Another great addition to your BluRay collection!
