Okay this is becoming a habit now. Once again I am late posting this week’s episode of Entertainment for the Rest of Us. Sorry folks, I’m just a regular guy and it seems that life is getting in the way of us getting our great thoughts out there about TV, Movies, and everything leisurely. Well I have complained enough, lets talk about the show.
This week we review and discuss the DVD Bridesmaids and in theaters, as of this posting, Moneyball. No points of interest to share but we still have a good time.
For those fans of SNL, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy (recent Emmy winner from the CBS TV hit Mike and Molly), we got the DVD for you to go rent; we discuss Bridesmaids. Bridesmaids is a comedy about Annie, played Kristen Wiig, who is picked to be her best friend’s maid of honor, broke and not too happy about relationships she tries to fake her way through the pricy and odd rituals of getting married. Since we are a bunch of dudes we really didn’t get this movie. So please tell us what we are missing by leaving a comment.
If you are looking for a good film to see with great dialog and storytelling then you need to go see Moneyball. The gents and I break this film down and discuss why it is so good. Moneyball is about Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s attempt at building a baseball team on a budget by using science more than experience and gut feel. This movie stars the one and only Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pratt and Robin Wright. Directed by Bennett Miller and based on the book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” written by Michael Lewis. Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay for this wonderful film. I think it’s a must see. If you’ve seen Moneyball, and you don’t think it’s a must see tell me why by leaving a comment. Or if you like it tell us why…
Thanks again for stopping by and listening to the show. Be sure to tell your friends and family about us!
