Witherspoon Full of Sugar

Home Again
You CAN Go Home Again, Especially When Your Parents Give You The Blueprints
Official Site | Trailer & Mo
PG-13 | 97 min

The shiny apple doesn’t fall from the rom-com tree as writer/director Hallie Meyers-Shyer follows in her parents’ footsteps and delivers Home Again – a saccharine sweet debut that will surprise no one, and delight everyone at the same time.  Would you expect anything less from the kin of Nancy Meyers (What Women Want, It’s Complicated, The Intern) and Charles Shyer (Baby Boom, Father of the Bride I and II)???  No, we didn’t, and neither should you.  The torch hasn’t been fully passed yet, but it’s good to know that mushily digestible romantic comedies may be safe for another generation with Hallie and her DNA

Look, Home Again is about as groundbreaking as the discovery that lint exists in your bellybutton, but juss cause everything about this movie is obvious and oblivious to the way the things work in the real world, doesn’t mean that you won’t sit there the entire time with a smile plastered on your face, and all the women you know will be happily watching it for years to come on cable TV airings

Look, I care zero for Reese Witherspoon, and her plight in this movie about just turning 40, being recently separated from (the always charming even when smarmy) Michael Sheen, raising two (too adorable) daughters AND trying to get an interior design career off the ground, but throw in a GILF (Candice Bergen) and three homeless, hunky, aspiring filmmakers (Nat WolffJon RudnitskyPico Alexander) looking for a home (guess where they find a temporary home?????), and you have the recipe for a winning chick flick where they will probably end up singinging doo-wop or Van Morrison songs into the handle of a broom whilst sweeping the floor.  OK, so I was surprised a little, cause THEY DIDN’T SING INTO THE HANDLE OF A BOOM!!!  OR EVEN A MOP!!!  True women’s lib!  LIBERATING (MOVIE) WOMEN FROM SINGING INTO THE HANDLES OF THINGS!!

If you don’t think this is a step forward, THEN STEP OFF!!!

Verdictgo: Jeepers Worth A Peepers

Home Again aint at your home, but at a theater near jews and white nationalists tomorrow!

Into Charm’s Way

the intern

I am not a fan of romantic comedies, but I’m a sucker for sappy movies.  Luckily Nancy Meyers‘ The Intern has little romance, and tons of sap, like a tree filled with tons of sap!!!  YEP, MAD SAP, YO!!!!  And the whole thing is filled to the brim with endless charm, and smiles, and Robert De Niro being subtle, but sensational, and Anne Hathaway being her energetic self, and with her usual awesome sweater puppies

What I really loved most about this movie, and love most about Nancy Meyers movies in general, is that there is little to no drama, and a lot to a lot lot lot lot lot goody–goody-goodness.  The Intern wasn’t really a movie, as it was more like a feeling – a good one you juss didn’t want to end.  I was on the verge of tears a few times, and I had zero idea why.  None of it was that emotional.  Maybe I just REALLLLLLLLY wanted De Niro and Hathaway to succeed together.  The likelihood of that not happening was minus 2389123939239239, but still, I was REALLLY rooting for them to make it work, at work!  

I also realllllllllly liked the schulubby chubby combo of Adam DeVine and Zack Pearlman.  They like brothers from another smothers.  I want to smother them with my hugs
