This movie... where have I been that I have never seen this movie? It is outstanding! Hilarious from the moment Nicholas Angel is hauled into the office to receive transfer orders to small town Sandford to the very end!
I think Simon Pegg is awesome but this just shoved him higher on the awesome list.
I suppose that I am the last person to watch this movie but my favorite scenes are the various shoot out locations! It was great to see Olivia Colman in something other than Doctor Who and Broadchurch. We can't forget Timothy Dalton (James Bond), Bill Nighy (Harry Potter 7, Total Recall (2012)), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock), Jim Broadbent (Horace Slughorn Harry Potter 6, 7, 8) , and David Bradley (Argus Filch Harry Potter series)!
The premise is entertaining, the dialogue believable and the comedy is well, okay it is Simon Pegg, brilliantly funny.
And if that isn't enough, the twist at the very end is just that, a twist. I should have guessed that the underwater mine would play a greater role later. I mean honestly, if you have a gun on a gun rack in scene 5 you better use it later! Great use!
If you haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet ... find it and watch! This movie is now on my need to own it list!
So, what will you be watching on Harry Potter's birthday? Hopefully this show!
"For 12 lucky souls, a fantastic world will come alive in a competition series unlike any other. #TheQuest premieres Thursday, July 31 at 8|7c on ABC."
This is the description on the official Facebook page. But, if you've seen the 30 second promo during "Once Upon A Time", you'll know that this show is not like "Survivor" or "The Amazing Race." It is a fantasy competition. How is it different? It's for fans of fantasy! Wow! What?
The preview showed sword fighting! That's my kind of show!! Okay it's also my kind of show because one of the contestants is not only from Little Rock but from my church congregation! His nickname on the show is "Paladin Jim", so when you watch, and you should because it looks awesome, root for him! And it's got sword fighting!!
We know nothing of the outcome, obviously, due to requirements from the show but it's always great to support friends in their endeavors!
Keep an eye out here when the show starts for updates and episode summaries!
This is sometimes the bane of being a single mom, I don't always get to see movies right away. But off we go.
Leslie Mann (George of the Jungle) and Cameron Diaz (Charlie's Angels) made a great pair in this hysterical buddy comedy. I have not laughed this hard at a movie in a very long time.
Mann plays clueless "Stepford Wife" Kate King and I really do mean clueless. The open of the movie has Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Mark King with Cameron Diaz's Carly Whitten, the "other woman". Things seem to be going great. Then, the scene that changes everything. We see Mark in bed and the voice we were accustomed to hearing is not what we hear. It's Kate, his wife. Oops. We all know the guy (and to be fair) or girl that exactly like this. Kate isn't in sexy lingerie, she's in the granny cotton nightgown that let's face we have all worn at one point in our adult lives. They go through the normal married couple routine and this is when we discover Kate is clueless. It isn't until a few scenes later when Carly shows up thinking she'll surprise Mark at his Connecticut home that the mistress and the wife meet. You can feel the awkwardness from these two comedy mavens but you really feel for poor Carly. She truly had no idea her guy was married.
Don't count out Kate's several breakdowns after confronting Carly because you get some of the funniest scenes! I think my mom and I were the only ones in the theatre laughing. (We went to the 4:05 show and were 2 of 6 people in the whole theatre!)
'How is this classified as a buddy movie' you may be asking yourself. The mistress and the wife end up becoming friends. I won't spoil any more of this lovely movie for you. If you haven't seen it yet do so before it leaves the theatres, just don't wait for Netflix or On Demand services! It's too hilarious to pass up!
