Life As We Know It

Okay, I have a little confession to make. When the movie, Life As We Know It staring Katherine Heigl (as Holly Berenson) and Josh Duhamel (as Eric Messner) first came out a few years back, I didn't go see it even though it was filmed right here in Atlanta. The reason? The previews of the movie reminded me too much of another Katherine Heigl movie I had seen years before and didn't care for called, Knocked … [Read more...]

The Big Wedding

Last August I posted about the movie, The Big Wedding that was scheduled to come out in October 2012. Not sure why but the movie was delayed and ended up being released in April 2013, instead. Do you think they did that to have it better coincide with all the wedding stuff that goes on in the spring and summer? I had high hopes for the movie since it had an amazing cast: Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, … [Read more...]

Death at a Funeral

Several months ago I decided to give Netflix a spin.  One of the first movies Netflix recommended for me was Death at a Funeral.  The movie poster definitely grabs your attention, doesn't it?  You can read a detailed synopsis of the plot for this movie at Wikipedia, but in general, the  Patriarch of a well-to-do British family dies and his son, Daniel (Matthew Macfadyen) has been given the task of planning … [Read more...]

Sabrina: Beautiful Glen Cove

I'm a  total sucker for romantic comedies. Life may not always turn out the way it does in the movies, but it sure is fun to "escape" to a fantasy world where the guy always gets the girl and the girl always gets her Prince Charming, even if he is slightly flawed in the beginning. Sabrina, a 1995 remake of the Billy Wilder 1954 original with Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden, is a rom … [Read more...]

Own a Prop from Your Favorite Movie

Many years ago, I was out antiquing and came across a somewhat ordinary looking secretary. I had one day hoped to buy a secretary for our house, so it caught my eye. It wasn't quite what I'd had in mind but what really grabbed my attention was the label attached to the sales ticket stating it had been used in the movie, Bull Durham. I was intrigued. Though, Bull Durham wasn't necessarily a favorite … [Read more...]
