Thursday DVD Review ~ TV & Movies Galore

Another cute movie, you just have to love Kristen Bell & Josh Duhamel they make the cutes couple. This is a movie I wouldn't buy to watch again but it was a good one to make you laugh and smile. A feel good movie ;). Plus people will get together that you might not have expected :).

After fishing out coins from a water fountain in Italy, cynical New Yorker Beth Harper (Kristen Bell) finds herself being wooed by several ardent suitors. As she deals with the attention, Beth tries to figure out whether a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) really loves her. Danny DeVito, Anjelica Huston, Jon Heder, Dax Shepard and Will Arnett also star in this romantic comedy. Mark Steven Johnson directs.

Wow talk about what you will do to save your family. It was a sad movie of what length a person can get pushed to and then what happens when they get so wrapped up into it. Forgiveness is a hard thing and I know how hard it is to get to that point. A tear jerker that will make you think what would I do. Probably go work at McD's but that's me :).

Inspired by a true story, this The Client List is the story of Samantha Horton (Jennifer Love Hewitt), a former Texas homecoming queen and physical therapist. When both she and her husband, Rex (Teddy Sears), are laid off from their jobs, Samantha accepts an offer to work at a massage studio in a nearby town, not realizing that the other staff members are actually prostitutes who service a clientele of wealthy and powerful businessmen. Eventually realizing what goes on behind closed doors, but desperate to provide for her family, Samantha goes along for the ride. But when the police raid the business and Samantha is arrested, she ends up as a key witness in the case — putting high-profile johns in handcuffs and bringing a small Texas town to its knees.

What is it about a lifetime movie that can make you smile and cry all in one. Here is another one that I missed when it was on lifetime but thankfully it was on DVD. You will cry with this one but it sure does show you how your loved ones and God are there for you. This movie came at the right time, I truly loved it.

Shattered by the sudden death of her father, harried ER nurse Jamie (Lacey Chabert) struggles with her job, her relationship with her fiancé and her overpowering grief. But the healing soon begins when Jamie meets a terminally ill patient (Gena Rowlands, in an Emmy-nominated role) with a lust for life. Based in part on the book by John Edward, this heartwarming drama originally aired on the Lifetime network. Keep a tissue box at close reach.

I'm very sad I missed this show, I never heard of it. It was on the instant download and I love Portia de Rossi so I had to check it out. Then come to find out it had 2 season and then done. This office is just nutty you just have to laugh at the stupid stuff that happens. I'm really surprised it's not still around it sounds like 30Rock and everyone loves that. At least we can watch the 2 seasons.

With the motto "Money Before People," Veridian Technologies' truth-twisting, unscrupulous business tactics make for the interesting subject of this office culture satire. At the center is the firm's ethical research and development chief Ted Crisp (Jay Harrington). From botched products to fake awards to inventions gone awry, Ted must endure all that happens around him. Portia de Rossi co-stars as Ted's emotionless boss, Veronica Palmer.

Talk about steamy this truly is an adult show and goes way beyond the books would ever go. This season keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm so glad I don't have to have the paid channels I just have to wait for the DVD's :).

Telepathic waitress Sookie (Anna Paquin) attempts to solve a recent murder and sort out several issues with her vampire boyfriend, Bill (Stephen Moyer), including how to deal with his annoying teenage houseguest, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll). Season two of this critically acclaimed vampire series features new characters, including Iraq war veteran Terry (Todd Lowe) and mysterious social worker Maryann (Michelle Forbes).

This movie reminds me of one not too long ago about going to Ireland and a cute native catchs the girls attention but this one was a little different. It had some good ups and downs and made you laugh. Good one to pick you up!

After her estranged father dies, big-city magazine editor Cate (Laura Leighton) must leave her busy job and frantic wedding planning behind so she can spread her father's ashes in her tiny Massachusetts hometown in this touching Hallmark Channel movie. Once there, she reunites with a long-lost childhood friend (Kelli Fox), gets chummy with a handsome attorney (Sebastian Spence) and begins to discover new sides to her late father.

This was a super cute movie it had some whacky family members that make you laugh. How can you not love Shirley MacLaine. There are some ups and downs and you just have to laugh and cry along with it!

In this romantic comedy featuring Shirley MacLaine as a wacky grandma, Southern girl Carolina (Julia Stiles) envisions an entirely different existence for herself, far from the maddening mix that is her family. So, she leaves home for California, where she hopes she'll find some tranquility. But her efforts are soon wasted when she finds herself torn between two men. Who will win her heart?

Netflix suggested this one I saw I liked the characters, sure I'll give it a shot. Well not so much, it was hard to get into this one it had some good moments but overall I just couldn't like it. There were parts that I know people will have to deal with if taking care of an elder parents but I'm not sure I needed to see this.

Jayne (Parker Posey) and Laura (Demi Moore) return to their childhood home in Pittsburgh to look after their father, Joe (Rip Torn), a lively widower who may be slipping into dementia. The sisters are soon at odds over their father's care -- and over old family dramas. As Joe's condition deteriorates, they are forced to confront myriad unpleasant memories. Ellen Barkin and Christian Camargo co-star.


  1. Wow, you watched a lot of movies this week!

    We watched "Better Off Ted" while it was on TV. It was a paradox: we watched and laughed, but kept saying, "Why are we watching this?!"

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE True Blood!!! Can't stand Kristen Bell though I can't think of anyone hotter than Josh Duhmel!!

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's for Dinner

  6. It's great that you save us from watching stinkers. Netflix's recommendations are sometimes so far off from my tastes, it's like they don't listen!!

  7. I'm not sure how you get the time to watch all the movies, but sounds like some great ones this week. I have to check out that lifetime movie!

  8. A lot of stuff to check out. Thanks for the reviews.

  9. I have seen some of Carolina on cable, I must go back and watch it.
    I love them. Haven't seen Happy Tears. Sounds like a good cast to me. Sorry you didn't like it. My husband liked Better of Ted. I didn't watch it. I'll have to make a point of seeing the others.

  10. Huh. Ok, so the only one of these I'd ever heard of was True Blood - not that I've seen it. I need to expand my movie club, I think :)

  11. Although I don't get HBO, I'm addicted to True Blood. I can't wait until the third season comes out on DVD. I've never heard of The Client List, but it sounds like one I'd be interested in. Thanks for the reviews.

  12. I really love Shirley Maclaine so that one I must see. I hear fabulous things from EVERYONE about True Blood, so that's my other pick from your picks. :)

  13. I love getting your take on these movies and TV shows.
    "The Client List" was another one that I knew you would be watching. I haven't finished it yet, I have it on DVR and have only seen the first 1/2. I really adore Jennifer Love Hewitt, so I knew I would like it.
    I haven't seen any of the others, but I plan on catching a couple of the others soon.

  14. I'm gonna see When In Rome! That one looks good! kind of movie!

  15. I only watched the first one LOL and it was cute! I want to see the second one :)
