Grown Ups

I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

Rating; PG-13 for, "Crude material including suggestive references, language and some male rear nudity."
Staring; Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
Released; 25Th of June, 2010.
Genre; Comedy.

This is the story of a group of men who were once part of a champion basketball team, they all return to their home town for the funeral of the coach that took them there, their 8Th grade coach Bobby 'Buzzer'(Blake Clark)Ferdinando. After so much time apart with Lenny(Adam Sandler)Feder becoming a publicist, Kurt (Chris Rock) McKenzie a stay-at-home dad, Rob (Rod Schnider) Hilliard married an lady old enough to be his mom, Eric (Kevin James) Lamonsoff recently getting layed off, and last Marcus (David Spade) Higgins who is still a bachelor. First this was just about paying respects, but it became so much more. It became showing all their kids that video games and gadgets are not a childhood, it's about taking risks and getting dirty.

My Review;
It was funny, it certainly had it's awkward moments though. It's what you can expect from most Adam Sandler movies, they wont make your list of most inspirational or best picture, but they will make you laugh out loud and possibly make that list. It was entertaining. I would watch it again maybe with a group of friends, because it's often more fun to laugh with friends. It's rated PG13 so keep that in mind when you're going out to rent it. And in the rating description where it says "Male rear nudity", it happens twice, the first was a (Old) man after going down a really fast water slide, and the second was David Spade, getting up in the morning. Neither were supposed to be attractive, they more make you turn away. Just thought I'd clarify.

To sum it up, it was funny, worth watching.

The Last Song

I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

Rating; PG for, "Thematic material, some violence, sensuality and mild language."
Staring; Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
Released; 31st of March, 2010.
Genre;Drama, Romance.

Veronica 'Ronnie' (Miley Cyrus) Miller and her little brother Jonah (Bobby Coleman) go to visit their father Steve (Greg Kinnear), for the summer, who lives on the coast of Georgia. Ronnie soon meets a boy named Will (Liam Hemsworth) Blakelee, they fall in love. But things go bad when they find out not only is Ronnie's dad sick, and will soon pass, but also the church that, it was though, Steve accidentally burnt down wasn't actually his fault, and Will knew who's fault it was. Though the issue of the burn church was figured out, Ronnie was too upset that Will didn't say who it was until so long later, she didn't even want to forgive him. Though he knew she was mad at him, he when to her fathers funeral. Ronnie played a song for her dad at the funeral, she hadn't played the piano, but once, since her parents were divorced. After the funeral she went back to her father's house and was packing up his things when she saw Will waiting on the beach, she walked out to see him. She wasn't expecting this she had assumed he had already gone away to college, she was wrong he loved her so much, he had to see her again. He said he was thinking about transferring to another school he was accepted to in New York, down the road to where she would be going, Julliard, Ronnie was so excited.

My Review;
Okay so in case you hadn't guessed by the commercials this was a typical love story. Two young people fall in love, there's a beach, someone dies, there's a fight. But though it wasn't anything great and new, I liked it, it was entertaining. It was worth the rental cost. It had some emotion I didn't think Miley Cyrus was capable of, I thought her performance was good. Through out most of the movie it kind of seemed that they called it the last song because it was the thing that came to their head, but you figure it out. I thought it was good, it can be somewhat of a tearjerker movie, but not to much.

To sum it up, it was good.

I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

Rating; PG13 for, "violent action, sexual material and language"
Staring; Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl.
Released; 4Th of June, 2010.
Genre;Thriller, Action, Comedy, Romance.

Spencer (Ashton Kutcher) Aimes is an assassin, Spencer Aimes WAS an an assassin. In beautiful Nice France, a recently-broken-up Jen (Katherine Heigl) Kornfeldt met the man she would soon marry, Spencer. It was love at first sight, that day was Spencer's last day on the job. They were married, lived normal life's, but this would only last so long. After three years Spencer's past caught up with him. Every one turned against them, every where, all their friends where trying to kill them. Through a series of wild events, Jen finds out her father MR.(Tom Selleck) Kornfeldt is some secret agent and was the one trying to kill her husband, because he thought that he was trying to kill him and that her husband was an assassin. With a stand off between Spencer and Mr.Kornfeldt, Jen gets fed up, and has a little sit down with her Mom Mrs. (Catherine O'Hara) Kornfeldt, Dad, and Husband about no secrets, and no trying to kill each other.

My review;
It was pretty average action wise, there wasn't a whole lot of blood, it didn't really show many "dead" people but it was implied that they had been killed. It was an okay movie, I'd recommend renting it, there wasn't a whole lot of nudity or language. Being a 4-H kid I did love that Spencer (Kutcher) said that he learned to shoot in 4-H. I didn't think it was anything new or fantastic, but I did enjoy to watch it, it was funny. I will add that it did have a few unexpected twists, that were good.

To sum it up, watch it, it's fun.
