How excited are you about this? It’s your two most favorite girl crushes Emma Stone + Rachel McAdams + Bradley Cooper + Bill Murray. It could be awful (and it is or was, according to the Sony hack leaked emails), but it’s still gonna be good because of all the pretty faces. And the trailer actually makes it look like it’ll be fun (because Bill Murray).
Seen anything good lately?
P.S. Two movies I’d recommend to a friend.
I don’t know what it is about Rachel McAdams and time travel movies, but girlfriend totally nails it. Am I right? The Time Traveler’s Wife is maybe my favorite book – maybe – and the movie was superb enough to satisfy me even though, of course, having read the book about 5 times, I didn’t think the screen version quite did it justice. Though the gloriousness that is Eric Bana helped reconcile that a bit.
While the leading man in About Time might not seem as scrumptious, I promise you: he’s the perfect recipe of funny, clumsy goof + adoring brother and son + and doting husband/father, providing a real love story that is charmingly sincere and beautiful and heart-achingly romantic. Thus, I proclaim that you have to see this movie. I’d heard absolutely nothing about it before I recorded it while sick and watched it on the couch surrounded by balled up tissues, covered in blankets with Baxter sleeping on my icy toes. I’ll warn you in advance that it’s not just the love story that’ll get you — the relationship of the main character, Tim, with his affable father (played by the phenomenal Bill Nighy), is sure to have you in tears. Ugly tears. The kind that make you reach for the Kleenex because you need to blow your nose, flu or not. I’m telling you, friends. It’ll happen. But it’s good.
Here’s the trailer:

We are Marshall. Remember the Titans. Friday Night Lights. The Blind Side. Rudy.
Add When the Game Stands Tall to that list of great football movies – it looks so, so good. And, I love me some Jim Caviezel. Swoon.
Will you go see it? What’s your favorite football movie?
Don’t you just love Tom Hanks? This movie looks lovely:
This is just a great year for movie news, apparently. Jeff Daniels recently confirmed that he and Jim Carrey will start filming the sequel to Dumb & Dumber this fall. Hooray! It’s one of the best comedies ever, right? I’m chuckling just thinking of some of my favorite lines from the movie. So good. Can’t wait!
What’s you favorite quote from Dumb & Dumber?
Are you as excited about this as I am?!
If you know us at all, you know BFOTB and I are obsessed with Veronica Mars. And, by association, Kristen Bell. I mean, how could you not want to be best friends with a girl who freaks out like this when her fiance surprises her with a sloth for her birthday?
So, here it is, the best news ever: there may be a Veronica Mars movie coming soon! The catch? They need cash. Seems unlikely considering how many devoted fans there are out there, but I’m on board. Oh, how I miss her tasering bad guys and her witty, pretty Nancy Drew ways!
Be sure to watch the super fun Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter Project video featuring some favorites from the show. And, if you can spare a little change, throw it into the donation pile because I really want to see a Veronica Mars movie. Plus, don’t you want a Veronica Mars movie t-shirt? I sure do. I wish I had the spare cash to secure a spot on the red carpet, or a line in the movie so that BFOTB and I could meet Kristen Bell and become her friends. But that shirt is just going to have to do. (side note: if they would’ve been really smart, they would’ve launched this campaign right before Valentine’s Day because I totally would’ve suckered Mumbles into coughing up a lot of cash to score me some awesome prizes!)
P.S. Here’s a fun little V. Mars quiz to rekindle your love for Neptune!
