Nanny McPhee

Widower and undertaker 41-year-old Cedric Brown (Colin Firth) has seven children. He loves his children very much, but spends little time with them, unable to handle raising them all on his own. The children have had a series of seventeen nannies, whom they systematically drive out; it is a point of pride for them to get rid of each nanny as fast as possible.  Desperate to find another nanny, Cedric heeds the advice of a mysterious voice from the house, which says, "the person you need is Nanny McPhee."  An unusual and hideous woman named Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) arrives at Brown home, introducing herself as a "government nanny". The children, led by Simon, attempt to play their tricks on her, but gradually start to respect her and ask her for advice.

The family is financially supported by the late Mrs. Brown's Aunt, Lady Adelaide Stitch (Angela Lansbury).  Lady Adelaide demands custody over one of the children in order to ensure their continued education and proper upbringing in society and also demands that Cedric remarry within the month, threatening to cut off the family's allowance if he fails to do so. Desperate to keep his family together and prevent losing his house, Cedric turns to the vulgar Mrs. Selma Quickly, local widow of three husbands with garish taste in clothing.  the children assume that stepmothers are all cruel, and attempt to sabotage a visit from Mrs. Quickly.  When his proposal is ruined by more pranks, she leaves angrily and refuses see him again. After the children are explained the truth of their father's situation, they agree to the marriage, and appease Mrs. Quickly by confessing they were to blame for the disturbance of her visit, and lure her with promises of Aunt Adelaide's wealth.

 Now you'll just have to get the movie in order to find out exactly how it ended.  What happens with Evangeline, the 7 children and Nanny McPhee, you won't be disappointed!

Bridget Jones's Diary

A delightful comedy about the ups and down of modern romance,  Bridget, a busy career woman, decides to turn over a new page in her life by channeling her thoughts, opinions and insecurities into a journal that becomes a hilarious chronicle of her adventures.  Soon she becomes the center of attention between a guy who's too good to be true and another who's so wrong for her, he could be just right.  In the sequel, Over The Edge is what happens after you get the love of your life.  After "6 wonderful weeks, four fabulous days and seven precious hours with one flawless boyfriend, Mark Darcy", mischievous and devilishly charming Daniel Cleaver arrives back on the scene claiming to be a reformed man, can Bridget find a way to make true love last forever?  Starring Renee Zellweger as Bridget Jones, Colin Firth as Mark Darcy and Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver.

Both these movies really are quite hilarious and it does give the "non-perfect" women hope that there just might be a "Mark Darcy" out there for them too.

I was at Walmart a couple of weeks ago just for something to do. Well I was looking around in the cheap DVD bin not looking for anything in particular but I found one of those duo DVD packages for cheap so I thought what the heck it's only 10$, if I don't like them it's really not a big lose. Well the two movies were Follow The River and Thicker Than Water and I'll tell ya, they're not bad movies. Now would I rush out to see them if they were in the theaters? Probably not and I doubt I'd spend more then the 5 bucks I spent on each one but I'm not disappointed that I bought them.

Follow The River

stars Sheryl Lee as Mary Ingles, younger people will remember from playing Payton's mom Ellie on One Tree Hill but older ones will remember from Twin Peaks, she was Maddy/Laura Palmer. A pregnant Mary Ingles, her son, her sister and another male member of their village were kidnapped by Shawnee Indians. The head brave was Wildcat, played by Eric Schweig (from the movie Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis). Wildcat became impressed with how strong Mary was during these times and he gave her special privileges. Eventually he wanted her to leave with him and he would take care of her and her children but Mary just wanted to get back to her husband Will. Mary ended up being separated from her children and she and another lady, played by Ellen Burstyn, decided to try to get back to their lives. For anyone that did enjoy Last of the Mohicans you will definitely enjoy this movie as well.

Thicker Than Water

: stars Melissa Gilbert, everyone should remember her from Little House On The Praire and Lindsay Wagner, the Bionic Woman. Melissa Gilbert plays Natalie Jones an LA lawyer who's father, just passed away. She gets documents which tells her that he was previously married to rodeo queen, Maggie Mae. Natalie decides to go in search of any information she can about the woman and discovers Maggie had a daughter, Jess (Wagner). This is a very endearing family movie. It's made by Hallmark.

Doctor Dolittle

I remember my mother reading Dr. Dolittle to me when I was a kid and I also remember the 1967 version of Dr Dolittle with Rex Harrison playing Dolittle. Recently tho I saw the 1998 version of Dr Dolittle with Eddie Murphy. I've always liked Eddie Murphy, I find him quite funny but I often wonder why he found it necessary to swear in all his comedy acts. Now he's found out you don't have to curse and swear like a sailor to be funny.

Dr Dolittle is a comedy and family movie about a man who discovered he could talk to animals and they could understand him too. In the first movie, Dolittle not only learns of his unique ability but there's a lot of animals in need of his expertise. Including a tiger suffering from something on his brain. His colleges and his family thinks he's going nuts, as does he at one time, but they all learn that he's not so crazy after all. In the sequel which came out in 2001 Dolittle has come to terms with his ability, as has everyone else and he treats not only human patients but animals ones as well. In the sequel he's summoned to the forest by "the beaver". As it turns out there's a large company that is leveling the forest wanting to make it more commercialized. In order to help the animals, Dolittle has to be the love doctor and introduce Archie the bear to Ava the bear. Both of which are endangered species, being the only way they can save the forest.

The Dolittle family was played by the same people in both movies, Eddie Murphy as Dr Dolittle, Kristen Wilson as Lisa Dolittle, Raven-Symoné as Charisse Dolittle and Kyla Pratt as Maya Dolittle. So if you're looking for a movie for the entire family to watch, I highly recommend these ones. They're hilarious.

Batman and Friends and Foes

Batman's always been my favorite Superhero!! In the movies that is. I loved the first 4 Batman movies but the last two with Christian Bale, I'm just not sure about them. Since when did Batman become so dark and violent?? Oh well check out all the guys who've played Batman along with his sidekick Dick Grayson better known as Robin but did you know that Dick Grayson wasn't the only "Robin"? You can also check out all the guys who've played Alfred the butler too.

I grew up watching the Adam West version of Batman and Robin but when I got older my favorite Batman became Michael Keaton. In the first Batman played by Michael Keaton, Bruce Wayne/Batman took on the Joker played by Jack Nicholson and in Batman Returns, Batman took on Cat-Woman, played by Michelle Pfeiffer and Penguin played by Danny DeVito. The third, Batman Forever has Val Kilmer and he's joined by Robin played by Chris O'Donnell and together they fight Riddler, played by Jim Carrey and Two-Face played by Tommy Lee Jones. As a side note about Two-Face, everyone knows that Harvey Dent ends up as Two-Face but in the first Batman movie Harvey Dent had a small part in it and he was played by Billy Dee Williams. I can see changing actors to play a role but changing the actor to a different race?? Then we come to Batman and Robin with George Clooney as Batman and Chris O'Donnell as Robin. The Super Villains they take on are Mr Freeze played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Poison Ivy played by Uma Thurman. This one introduces another of the Bat Family, Batgirl played by Alicia Silverstone. The last Batman in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is played by Christian Bale, a much darker version of Batman. In the Dark Knight, Batman fights against another Joker played by Heath Ledger.

The Faces of Superman

I was never a big fan of the Superman Movies, I find them to be a little too cheesy. Even the lastest Superman Returns with Brandon Routh seems to be a little too "comic" for a movie. But I have liked the tv series on Superman. Back in the '80s there was the Dean Cain and Terri Hatcher version in Lois and Clark which wasn't too bad in it's day but to watch it now, well I think I'd lose interest. These days I do like to watch Clark Kent growing up in Smallville tho. However, with them taking Lex Luthor out, I'm not sure just how good it will be but time will tell.
