Girls: “Gummies”

Girls: “Gummies”

With the show over the years, we’ve watched the characters evolve and learn how to grow up and be adults. Nothing could be more grown up than Hannah discovering that she is pregnant.  While it is no easy decision to make, for now, it appears she is set on having the baby.  How will this affect her life going forward?  Hannah is able to tell her mother the news when she comes to visit. At first, the news seems to be happy, but as Loreen (Becky Ann Baker) begins tripping on too many pot gummies and her thoughts take a turn for the dark side. Loreen has been struggling since the loss of her husband to being gay. While on the surface...

Movie Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Movie Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

What do you expect going into a Seth Rogan film? If you answered an opening sex scene including vomit, then you answered correctly. In this sequel to the hit Neighbors, our lovely couple once again finds themselves at odds with a bunch of young people over territory. When Mac (Seth Rogan) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) discover she is pregnant with their second child, the couple decides to look for a bigger house.  Their house goes up for sale and closes into escrow for 30 days.  During escrow, the buyers of the house have time to do inspections and have the option to back out of the sale if anything goes amiss. Unfortunately for our comedic duo...

Movie Review: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Movie Review: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

With what I thought was a weak premise to start, I wasn’t sure how I would like this film. But much like a watered down drink, you add more alcohol (in this case four outstanding comedic leads) and mix it together (killer soundtrack) and pour it into a gorgeous glass (beautiful scenery) and you might just have a pretty kick-ass cocktail. Or film. Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) are two wild children that have a penchant for ruining every family gathering they bother to appear at.  With their little sister Jeanie (Sugar Lyn Beard) about to walk down the aisle, everyone knows those two need some supervision if the wedding is...

Big Little Lies Premiere: “Somebody’s Dead”

Big Little Lies Premiere: “Somebody’s Dead”

With Liane Moriarity’s book being a well-accepted success, we eagerly awaited the release of HBO’s adaptation of Big Little Lies.  Boasting such a rich acting quality of Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, and Nicole Kidman to name the least, it isn’t hard to see this series becoming a hit.  But let’s start at the beginning. The episode begins like the book. Someone is dead at a school function and everyone is a suspect. Cutting between interviews of witnesses and the beginning of the school year, the audience will see the story unfold as the events lead up to the death, which will most likely occur in the finale....

Girls: “Hostage Situation”

Girls: “Hostage Situation”

The final season of Girls is underway and in the second episode of the season, things go a little crazy. But after five seasons of these characters, crazy is all we know. So without crazy it wouldn’t be the show we’ve come to know and love. As previously mentioned, this show wouldn’t be itself if it weren’t for our favorite characters acting in insane ways.  As last season ended and this season began, I had hope for Marnie. Sure, she and Ray called each other ‘babe’ or ‘baby’ a lot, but I had hope that maybe Marnie was on a good path and finding her center and being less of a selfish human...
