If you are in the mood for some Blockbuster (or Netflix/Redbox) action, here are three to tide you over:
1. Life as we know it
No lie, it took about four trips to the movie store for me to finally find it on the shelves. By the time I found it, I was worried I had set my expectations too high and it would suck. Wrong! It had me laughing, crying and sighing with happiness by the time the rolling credits rolled. Also, Josh in tighty-whities? Not to be a cliche but, OMG! Fergie is one lucky lady (adulterous rumors be damned).
2. The Switch
By now, you know I am a huge Jen Aniston fan which may make my recommendation of The Switch slightly biased. But this is not a Rachel movie. It is not a Jason Bateman movie. It is all about the sweet little boy. I fell in love with him and his big, lovable brown eyes. The chemistry between him and Jason is beyond adorable. If you can get past the hurried ending (or at least it seemed that way to me), you too will be squealing with utter delight anytime Sebastian is on the screen.
3. Love & Other Drugs
Gotta admit, I was not too keen on watching Jake and Anne- that's saying a lot, considering I love both of them.The story line did not have me rushing to the theatres (blame the prude in me). But, two hours later, I was converted. Beware: there is a lot of the 3 b's (bare bosoms and butts) but, believe you me, Jake's butt is something to behold along with his baby blues. I kept bracing myself for the saddest of endings but other than a slew of happy tears and laughs I found myself falling in love with the film (even with the plethora of steamy sex scenes).
And now back to my Liz Lemon fest. Thank you, Netflix!
