I work at home as a freelance writer. I enjoy reading, writing, and television.

Now and Then

The girls of Now and Then when they were younger.
The girls of Now and Then when they were younger.

Now and Then is a story of four 12-year old girls who make a pact to always be there for each other -- no matter what. Many years later, one of the friends is expecting a child of her own. They get back together and reminisce about what happened that one summer all those years ago.

Starring:-
Christina Ricci - Rosie O'Donnell (They played the young and older Roberta.)
Thora Birch - Melanie Griffith (They played the young and older Teeny.)
Gaby Hoffmann - Demi Moore (They played the young and older Samantha.)
Ashleigh Aston Moore - Rita Wilson (They played the young and older Chrissy.)

Director:-
Lesli Linka Glatter

Year:-
1995

I was a little younger than these girls were when I first started watching this film. I used to rent it over and over from Blockbuster. It was entertaining, funny, and all about friendship -- all of which I enjoyed. I really liked Christina Ricci in this, but originally wanted to watch for Thora Birch thanks to her role in Hocus Pocus.

Sadly, Ashleigh Aston Moore passed away in 2007. She stopped acting in 1997 and died of an overdose just 10 years later.

Coyote Ugly is about a songwriter from New Jersey trying to make something of herself in New York. She has tremendous stage-fright, and her new boyfriend tries to help her get over her fears and get her songs heard.

Starring:-
Piper Perabo (Violet)
Adam Garcia (Kevin)
John Goodman (Mr. Sanford)
Melanie Lynskey (Gloria)
Maria Bello (Lil)
Izabello Miko (Cammie)
Tyra Banks (Zoe)
Bridget Moynahan (Rachel)

Director:-
David McNally

Year:-
2000

I tried my hand at songwriting after this film. I loved the music in the movie, especially the LeAnn Rimes songs. It was an entertaining movie and I liked the connection between Violet and Adam.

Grandma's Boy is about a video game tester who is constantly tired at work because his grandma and grandma's roommates work him too hard at home. Alex and his friends try to get their new game released on time, but need a woman to come in and oversee the project.

Starring:-
Allen Covert (Alex)
Linda Cardellini (Samantha)
Nick Swardson (Jeff)
Doris Roberts (Grandma/Lilly)
Shirley Jones (Grace)
Shirley Knight (Bea)
Peter Dante (Dante)
Joel Moore (J.P.)
Kevin Nealon (Mr. Cheezle)
Jonah Hill (Barry)
Kelvin Yu (Kane)

Director:-
Nicholaus Goosen

Year:-
2006

Definitely a NSFW film, but it's one I can watch over and over. It always makes me laugh and keeps me entertained. It has plenty of memorable quotes. "Your bed is a car... Yeah but it's a (frickin) sweet car." "I'm way too baked to drive to the devil's house." It's also made by Happy Madison productions -- Adam Sandler's company. Sandler has long been one of my favorites. Allen Covert and Nick Swardson are two actors you can typically see in many of Sandler's films. Linda Cardellini is also great in her newest project -- the Netflix Series, Dead to Me.

The Ugly Truth

The Ugly Truth is that men are dogs, and women need to be hot to get a man. That's at least what the new guy at Abby's work believes. The female producer has a much different opinion. The two can't seem to get along... or can they?

Starring:-
Katherine Heigl (Abby)
Gerard Butler (Mike Chadway)

Director:-
Robert Luketic

Year:-
2009

I like Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler and this is a funny movie featuring both of them. You can see Heigl in her latest project, Firefly Lane, on Netflix.

My Best Friend's Girl

Dustin turns to Tank and the hairstylist accidentally shaves off his eyebrow.

My Best Friend's Girl has a title that pretty much gives it away. A man who specializes in giving couples second chances by taking the girl on the worst date of her life, ends up falling for the girl his best friend was trying to win over.

Starring:-
Dane Cook (Tank)
Jason Biggs (Dustin)
Kate Hudson (Alexis)
Lizzy Caplan (Ami)

Director-:
Howard Deutch

Year:-
2008

I had a major Dane Cook phase for a while and really enjoyed his comedy. This movie was on par with that. I also like Kate Hudson and thought the two of them paired well together in this.
