Tinseltown Tuesdays: Away We Go

Away We Go is a quirky romantic comedy about a couple that finds themselves preggers but lacking a place to call home. Without fulfilling jobs or loving families tying them to Colorado, they set out across the country and Canada to find the perfect spot to raise their daughter.

The film stars Mya Rudolf (SNL) as the pregnant girlfriend of Burt (John Krasinski of The Office), a struggling salesman. Although Rudolf proved her comedic talent again and again on SNL, she really shines in the more subtle but humerous role of Verona. In addition, Krasinski plays the endearing role of Burt perfectly and is as charming as ever. The movie also features the incredible talent of Jeff Daniels, Carmen Ejogo, Jim Gaffigan, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Josh Hamilton, Allison Janney and Paul Schneider.

If that isn’t enough, Away We Go is directed by Sam Mendes, who produced Revolutionary Road and The Kite Runner, as well as directed American Beauty.

This film has a bit of the Garden State feel but offers situations of pure hilarity. Although labeled a comedy, Away We Go has some incredibly thought provoking and moving moments.

If you’re looking for both funny and tender moments to curl up on the couch to, this rental is the way to go!

Donate NOW!

I have a good friend, whom we shall refer to as CBH, who just LOVES to make fun of Obama’s election campaign slogan: Hope and Change. While I won’t get into politics just yet, I happen to love the concept of giving back and volunteering that Obama has endorsed and encouraged. Side note: For CBH, this is a constant source of amusement, which I think makes him a little bit evil even though we still adore him. While it may not be the best motto for a presidency (not that I'm saying Obama is using it as one), I think the general message is sound.

Sooooo, without further adieu…

With the recent earthquakes in both Chile and Haiti, I just want to remind our three followers and anyone who randomly stops by our blog to donate what you can to the relief funds for these two countries. Even though the death toll in Haiti is much larger, the most recent earthquake in Chile has left plenty of people without electricity and water. So I apologize for the extra side of cheese, but both have been left in devastation and both are in need of our help!

To donate $10 towards relief efforts in Chile, here is a list of options…

Text “4CHILE” to 50555 to Chile relief efforts through Convoy of Hope

Text “CHILE” to 50555 to support Chile relief efforts through the World Program

Text “REBUILD” to 50555 to support Chile relief efforts through Operation USA

To donate $10 towards relief efforts in Haiti, here is yet another list of options,…

Text “HAITI” to 90999 to support the Red Cross relief efforts

Text "GIVE10" to 20222 to support the relief efforts of Direct Relief

Tinseltown Tuesday: Crazy Heart

The endless road of drunken nights and shattered dreams, traveled in so many country songs and movies, is good for one more trip in Crazy Heart.  Playing a washed-up music legend reduced to playing small-town bowling alleys, Jeff Bridges steals the show as a cowboy crooner wrestling with his demons in ways that charm an audience's sympathies.

At the outset, when seen bellying up to the bar in said bowling alley with his bushy gray beard, and hauling his heavy frame around on legs that seem on the verge of collapse, Bridges' Bad Blake momentarily triggers the image of an errant older brother of Dude in The Lebowski. While Crazy Heart isn't quite the timeless classic Lebowski is, Bridges playing the perennially soused is, once again, award-worthy.
He's a man with a blurry past, even if its one that closely skirts generic norms. Licing "up" to the rugged country singer ways of the old, Blake's had several wives and a slew of women, a son he hasn't seen in years, and a relationship with a young protege - current country sensation Tommy Sweet (Colin Farrel) - the one subject he refuses to speak of when interviewed by young New Mexico writer Jean Craddock (Maggie Gyllenhaal).

Adapting a novel by Thomas Cobb, debuting director Scott Cooper sets the tale in a recognizable Southwest that's a touch more modern than your stereotypical rural town. Plotwise, there's nothing entirely surprising; more smitten with Jen than he might have imagined, Blake tries to build the relationship, but he soon hits a wall on several fronts.

The roughly 30-year age difference raises some eyebrows, but Gyllenhaal makes it clear that Jean takes the plunge with Blake of her own volition. Further, it takes a minute to adjust to Colin Farrell portraying a country sensation, but he quickly convinces by playing against all expectations. However, these are mere foils for Bridges' performance, which proves his place as one of Hollywood's great old pros, incapable of making a false move.

My Rating: a "must-see"

It's the Small Things...

Halle-freaking-lujah! Girl scout cookie season is finally upon us! I pulled up to our local grocer this week and was thrilled to find a group of girlies out front selling all of my preferred flavors (well almost). I bought a box of Peanut Butter Patties for myself and Thin Mints for the hubby! Unfortunately, they were already sold out of our favorite Caramel Delights. Tear.. :( But... I was promised there would be LOTS more to come! Hooray!

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend and go support your local girl scouts!
