Take Me Home Tonight

Relativity Media - Take Me Home Tonight

We were excited to take on this week’s feature flick, “Take Me Home Tonight“. The story of Take Me Home Tonight was written by Topher Grace, you know the guy who plays Forman on ‘That 70’s Show‘. The story he wrote, is about a guy who is not sure what he wants to do now that he has graduated from college. So before the summer is over he decides to try and get a date with his High School crush. From there all hell breaks loose, well almost all of it. Beside writing the story Topher Grace stars in this film along with, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Teresa Palmer. Listen in to see what we really think of this movie and to find out an interesting theory that Mike has.

EftRoU 100: i was your second choice…

Okay boys and girls welcome to episode 100. That’s right we hit a big milestone of show 100. On this episode Mike, the comic dude, joins me to discuss a little something different. I decide to torture Mike and asked him to review ‘For Colored Girls’ and then tried to redeem myself by also asking him to review ‘Just Go With It’.

DV-Debrief

For Colored Girls

Lionsgate: For Colored Girls

As I mentioned before I decided it would be different to review the DVD ‘For Colored Girls‘. Mike being the professional he is decided he would pacify me and watch it as well. This is a Tyler Perry joint, he wrote it, directed it and produced it. In this movie different women portray one of the characters represented in a collection poems. Each character reveals a different issue that women in general and women of color in particular deal with. Listen in and see how Mike and I disagree on performances given by Kimberly Elise, Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington, Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad. But agree that Whoopi Goldberg makes the movie worth seeing.

Just Go With It

Sony Pictures: Just Go With It

To lighten the mood a bit I thought it would be good for us to review a nice romantic comedy. So Mike and I went to the theater, not together mind you, to see ‘Just Go With It‘. This fun little film is about a guy who decides to pick up women by wearing a fake wedding ring. Each time he meets a new women he creates a new story, until he finds the one on girl he wants to be with. He then has to create a fake family and enlists his assistant to help out. In this movie you will find performances by Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, Nick Swardson and Nicole Kidman. Listen in and find out what Mike and I think of this film. See if we disagree or not. Be sure to listen closely to find out about Mike’s feelings when it comes to Brooklyn Decker.
