The Women

"Shocked by the discovery that their pal Mary's (Meg Ryan) husband is having an affair with a beautiful young shop girl (Eva Mendes), a tight-knit circle of New York socialites comes up with a devious plan to help Mary win back her man. This remake of George Cukor's classic 1939 film boasts an all-star ensemble cast, including Annette Bening, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing, Bette Midler and Candice Bergen. "

I didn't actually rent this Netflix sent it to me by accident but I thought i'd watch it anyways - but it was alright it was slow and you were just waiting for the big climax and it never really came. and the thing that always drove me crazy is that they never showed the husband, not even his hand or voice, he was just this "thing" they talked about and plotted around and against. It was a typical Meg Ryan movie - although she does look really cute with curly hair. Jada plays a lesbian and Debra Messing plays this raggedy-always-prego woman.

I Could Never be Your Woman

"Writer-director Amy Heckerling (Clueless) delivers a twisted romantic comedy that shows what happens when a mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) and daughter (Saiorse Ronan) come to blows with the forces of nature. Just as Rosie (Pfeiffer) strikes up a romance with a handsome younger man (Paul Rudd), her daughter Izzie (Ronan) falls in love for the first time -- and Mother Nature (Tracey Ullman) can't resist the temptation to meddle." courtesy of netflix

this was really cute and fun to watch - it's a total comedy and I love how they spoof on TV shows and etc. and Michelle Pfeiffer is really cute in it! her and Paul Rudd go well together. its good acting, its enjoyable. Its a great play on whether age really does mean anything when it comes to dating - or if it means everything.

New in Town

"The weather isn't the only drastic change for high-paid consultant Lucy Hill (Renée Zellweger) when she's sent from her home base in South Beach, Fla., to a small Minnesota town to improve the productivity of a local manufacturing plant. The town's residents also take some getting used to, especially the ruggedly handsome union boss (Harry Connick Jr.) who's doing his darnedest to make sure that Lucy doesn't cut any jobs." courtesy of netflix

it was alright, it was cute. it was VERY predictable - you can almost predict the whole movie just by reading the summary. Renee zellweger doesnt look all that cute in it - she looks older or something. I don't know I wouldnt want to watch it again, but it was enjoyable. the acting is good and her shoes are fabulous.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

"I was born under unsual circumstances...thus begins the Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Academy Award Winning film starring Brad Pitt as a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. Cate Blanchett as the woman he is destined to love forever. TCCOBB is a monumental journey - as unusual as it is epic - that follows Benjamins remarkable adventure of romance and redemption from the end of world war one through the 21st century. winner of three academy awards." (from the back of the movie cover)

I saw this movie ages ago, and I just recently bought it. and it just felt so worthy of Blogging that I decided to do it even though it's old - its fairly new I know some of you still havent seen it.

this is such a brillant movie. from the original concept of the plot, to the acting, to the makeup and wardrobe. its just amazing

its a very long movie to go through an entire life tide into the story of the woman in the hospital bed telling the story to her daughter. i LOVED that they tied in New Orleans in such a specific way and I'm sure that was Brad Pitt's doing - also i'm sure they shot everything in Louisiana to help try and rebuild it.

its a beautiful love story mixed in with this thought provoking idea about life and death and growing old and growing young and responsibility and to live carefree, i think your life grows by seeing this movie.
