A League Of Their Own Celebrates 25th Anniversary

A League Of Their Own Celebrates 25th Anniversary

I remember the first time my husband said to my now 10 year old “there is no crying in baseball”. Our  son then 7 looked at him confused shrugged his shoulders and walked away. We then looked at each other and laughed knowing one d,y  A League Of Their Own would make a family movie night.  Fast forward 3 years , after a day on 4 yes 4 different ball fields our family pizza movie night featured A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray.

On April 18th Sony Pictures released A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-Ray. Featuring an all new bonus featurette “Bentonville, Baseball & The Enduring Legacy of A League Of Their Own.” An unforgettable visit to the annual softball game at the Bentonville Film Festival.  The Blue-Ray also includes hilarious and insightful special features, including 15 deleted scenes , a documentary with the cast and filmmaker interviews.

About the Movie:

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this hilarious and beloved comedy, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna. With baseball lineups and locker rooms empty during World War II, the newly founded All American Girls Baseball League (AAGPBL). The AAGPBL brought talented women to the big leagues and brought fans to the stands. The indomitable Dottie Hinson (Davis) finds herself leading a rag tag group of players who end up winning over the heart of their has been coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks). Lori Petty , Rosie O’Donnell and Jon Lovitz round out the all star roster. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail for generations of athletes.

As we were watching the film whose run time is 128 minutes our son had his eyes glued to the Television. He asked lots of questions about the AAGPBL , World War II and letting us know Rosie O’Donnell is hysterical.  At one point in the movie we all started to laugh.  He then said to us OHHHH that’s where it comes from! Yes you guessed it , we had gotten to that famous “There is no crying in baseball ” line.

**Disclaimer** We received a copy of A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray in order to facilitate my review. A classic will will watch over and over again.

Mother’s Day #MotherDayMovie

Mother’s Day #MotherDayMovie 

Mother’s Day arrived a bit earlier this year for some of us moms who were treated to an advance screening of Mother’s Day #MothersDayMovie.  From the director of PRETTY WOMAN and VALENTINE’S DAY comes Garry Marshall’s latest film celebrating mothers on their special day. MOTHER’S DAY, starring Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Jason Sudeikis and Julia Roberts. 

I enjoy a movie that brings out different emotions as well as a movie  I can relate to. Mother’s Day will definitely did just that , I laughed, cried, laughed so hard I cried and I will admit I even snorted a few times!  

Attending the screening as a guest blogger of The Moms, and  Serta  we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived.  Lounging in Serta’s newest and most comfortable beds, I wished we could watch the movie right there. I immediately texted my husband and said we are going bed shopping soon! Chef Bailey was on hand with morning treats . Our gracious hosts greeted us and awaited the arrival of producer Gary Marshall and Star Kate Hudson. Starting the morning off with Gary and Kate got us all in the right mind frame to enjoy the film. I often forget that Kate is Goldie Hawn’s daughter but once she speaks it comes back to me. It was very interesting hearing Kate chat about her mom and reminiscing about her favorite movies growing up, Overboard and Private Benjamin. Immediately I was thinking of my mom and how we would watch them and laugh together.

Dolphin Tale 2 & NorwegianMOMS

Dolphin Tale 2  & NorwegianMOMS

Yesterday Main Man and I were invited as guests of The Moms and Norwegian Cruise Line to screen Dolphin Tale 2 and learn about The Moms newest partnership #NorwegianMOMS.  Dolphin Tale 2 opens in theaters September 12, 2014.

The screening  of Dolphin Tale 2 took place at Warner Brothers Screening Room in NYC. Ever since the clips have been released main man has been asking when we could go see it in theaters. The story of brave dolphin “Winter” continues. Winter whose rescue and recovery thanks to ground breaking prosthetics in Dolphin Tale  gave us hope and inspired our children. The true story of friendship, loss and overcoming obstacles continues in Dophin Tale 2.

The entire cast of Dolphin Tale returns along with new underwater friends in Mandy and Hope . A pesky pelican named Rufus joins in on the fun as well. The additions bring Hope for Winter! Dolphin Tale 2 is one of the most inspirational movies we have seen in a long time. The underwater cinematography makes you feel like you are part of the action.

Dolphin Tale 2 also shows the importance of family  not only with Sawyer played by Nathan Gamble and his own family but his family at the Clearwater Marine Hospital.

Dolphin Tale 2 opens in Theaters Sept 12th

Prior to the screening we were also treated to a short film about Norwegian Cruise Line, and ever since I can’t seem to get their “Let’s Go” theme song out of my head I have been humming it ALL DAY! Norwegian Cruise Line an innovator in cruising for nearly 47 years is breaking boundaries of traditional cruising and has introduced “Freestyle Cruising” which gives guests more freedom and flexibility. Working full-time and managing a home and business the last thing I want on vacation is more structure, I see a Norwegian cruise in our future.

Henry and Me The Movie

Henry and Me The Movie

Earlier this week my family and I traveled to New York City for a #heartwarming  red carpet mamarazzi premiere of Henry and Me The Movie, hosted by The Moms. Henry and Me The Movie is based on a young baseball loving boy named Jack . Jack who is battling cancer and about to undergo surgery  is met  by a guardian angel  Henry , who is played by Richard Gere . Henry  takes Jack on a trip in a flying car. Jack who we learn early in the Movie is a avid New York Yankee Fan, begins to travel back in Yankee history. On his journey he meets Yankee greats such as Babe Ruth, Thurman Munson , Lefty Gomez, and Mickey Mantle. Jack gets to play baseball in the historic OLD Yankee stadium. While visiting the house that Ruth built Jack  gets pointers from the Yankee greats. Jack  even gets to pitch to Mickey Mantle himself and strike him out. Once Jack awakens from surgery he is greeted by current yankee greats.

The film which was inspired by best selling children’s books by Ray Negron. Ray Negron who is a product of true yankee tradition. Ray was caught by The Boss George Steinbrenner sprawling graffiti outside yankee stadium and instead of having him arrested he hired him as a yankee bat boy. Over 30 years later Ray is still with the Yankee organization working as a consultant and active in community affairs.

Henry and Me The Movie is based on a young man named Jack who is 19 and a now college sophomore. Jack was present at the premiere and we were so pleased to meet him and engage in conversation. Main Man wished him well and enjoyed talking baseball and telling him how we just took the Lou Gehrig #ALS #icebucketchallenge.

Delivery Man Starring Vince Vaughn Delivers in Theaters November 22nd

Delivery Man Starring Vince Vaughn Delivers in Theaters November 22nd

 

This Thanksgiving Vince Vaughn starts Delivering in Theaters November 22nd as he Stars in Delivery Man. In the film, Vince Vaughn plays an affable underachiever looking for his purpose in life, when he finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them want to meet their biological father.

While the concept of the film is amusing, it’s also a really heartwarming look at what it means to be a family — no matter how unconventional. The definition of family has evolved and, as seen in the film, can come in all shapes and sizes. So in order to celebrate family I know my husband and I will be checking out this film during the upcoming holiday season. We are a family who unfortunately who unfortunately is right now experiencing infertility so this film and the concept of Delivery Man hits close to home and I think will put some humor in an otherwise horrible experience.

It's a Special Moment in a Man's Life When he finds out he is a father

Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” to Dive into Theaters November 25, 2015

Like Ellen DeGeneres said “I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” This past week Disney Pixar announced that “Finding Dory”—an all-new big-screen adventure will dive into theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.

When Dory said “just keep swimming” in 2003’s Oscar®-winning film “Finding Nemo,” she could not have imagined what was in store for her nor would she have been able to remember.  Having to wait twelve years for the sequel to the award winning Finding Nemo is sure to be worth it. T

he buzz was all around my office yesterday as we have already planned a staff day to go see our old friends Marlin, Nemo, Dory and the rest of the  Tank Gang.

dory

Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. One thing we couldn’t stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.”

 According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life. 

 DeGeneres’ distinctive comic voice has resonated with audiences from her first stand-up comedy appearances through her work today on television, in film and in the literary world. Her syndicated talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” is in its 10th season and has earned 38 Daytime Emmy® Awards. DeGeneres has won 12 People’s Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Comedian for three consecutive years. Additionally, her show won two Genesis Awards and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode. For her unforgettable turn as Dory, DeGeneres was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.
