A romantic drama starring Anna Camp, Justin Chatwin, Isabelle Fuhrman, Kyle Allen, Kelli Berglund, Roshon Fegan, and Evan Hofer. Written and Directed by Minhal Baig and produced by Kerry Barden, Hans S. Canosa, & Marius A. Markevicius.
Anna Camp plays thirty-something Elizabeth who must decide whether her disappointed marriage is salvageable with Drew (Justin Chatwin) while a worried teen, Bea (Isabelle Fuhrman), reconnects with Andy (Kyle Allen), a shy childhood friend, who try to move past their high school social status after the prom. This is a story of past and present colliding as two couples explore love in one night at a hotel.
I’m not usually one for romantic dramas and quite honestly the trailer didn’t inspire a lot of confidence to see this film. Perhaps it just me, maybe it was the mood I was in or whatever but I had the chance to see the flick early in exchange for my opinion and to host a giveaway on Curious as a Cathy.
The movie begins slow and stays so consistently throughout the flick. If you’re the impatient, waiting for something big to happen person like me then you’ll be disappointed. I decided to ride the waves of melancholy presented in the script that the actors executed well. While the story unfolded I found I wanted to see a good outcome for the young married couple in trouble and I had hopes that the teens took the advice given by two strangers oddly interested in them. I actually enjoyed the movie. If you like slow-paced dramas then this is definitely up your alley and if not but you kinda wanna see it coz it sounds sorta good then here’s a chance to win a free copy of the movie!
I will participate in this blog hop today & you’re invited to follow along! 😉
What a coincidence this viewing of this movie sorta is a purrfect fit for today’s Coffee Chat prompt hosted by Les from Ink Interrupted who asks: Who do you trust most?
It won’t come as a surprise to any of you if you read last week’s Coffee Chat response with my answer to today’s question but excluding God, I trust DH above all others. He’s my protector – physically and emotionally and I composed a little poem just my sweetie!
I borrowed the background from a free Internet resource. The original file name credits the author as JSF but I cannot find it online now. 🙁
Trust in a relationship goes beyond one’s faithfulness. It’s also a measure of love and sacrifice. How far will DH go for me? This is something I never asked of or from him but it’s a role he stepped into willingly because he loves me so deeply. I am honored by this pledge of adoration.
That’s a wrap for this morning. I’m hopping over to Stacy’s for Random Tuesday Thoughts and you’re welcome to join me if you want. I hope you’ll hop & link up tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday before you leave you might want to listen to this morning featured artist on Tuesday Tunesation!
I hope you’ll join me at midnight and link up with my mid-week meme not-so Wordless Wednesday.
When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

For years, I wondered what life would be like for us, as a couple, once the children left the house. Now that we are empty-nesters, I found I had nothing to worry about. The bonds that tie my husband and I together are more than our children. We feel like we’re dating each other all over again, except without the good-nights at the door.
Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another?
The vase population of society is migrating more and more toward the Internet. We see people of all ages surfing the web and a parent’s responsibility to protect their children has gotten more challenging with new generation smartphones, tablets, and tvs.
Nearly three-fourths of today’s teenagers are using smartphones. It goes without saying, these kids are plugged in with one or more social medias 24/7. How can a parent keep guard, if they don’t know what’s going on? The answer is simple ~ they can’t without close supervision.
What is a parent to do? I am delighted to learn about a subscription-based web service to help keep parents a step ahead of the technology frenzy called iParent.TV.
The concept of iParent.TV was formed by a group of dads who felt like their 9-year olds knew more about technology than they did, and I dare say they found out quickly that they were right. Their vision to level the playing field for all parents is now obtainable.
Watch Graig Gross below introduce to you the basic fundamentals of how iParent.TV can work for you…

Let me see a show of hands…who likes Halloween? I loved dressing up that one time of the year, as a little girl and go door-to-door to get a bag of delicious treats – candy, bubble gum, popcorn balls, or candy apples.
Here in American approximately 85-90% of the children embark upon this fun timeless trick-or-treat tradition the Irish & Scott’s brought to this land in the 1800s, but the fun doesn’t stop with the kiddies.
Playing dressing up doesn’t end with the youth it just gets more elaborate as you become a grown-up. In fact, 65% of adults ages 18-35 still very much enjoy this part of the Halloween tradition. It’s apparent with the pop-up specialty stores that appear in our community in early September. That being said, I thought this would be an awesome time for a give-away! The folks at
One of the largest, most popular, costume shops on the web!
has given me the go-ahead with a such a proposal. Whoo-hoo! You may remember at the end of July, I did a product review from their Greek/Roman costume category. If not, you can read about it here.
