a Rafflecopter giveaway

See Jennifer Lawrence in her 2016 Best Actress Oscar® Winning role!

This is a great film for girls night in, mother/daughter movie night (just in time for Mother’s Day), or a date night away from the kids! I can’t wait to watch this inspirational film and am honored to share the empowering message of JOY with you! For an added dose of JOY, take a peek at the exclusive clip below featuring director, David O. Russell.

Not only did Jennifer Lawrence win the 2016 Best Actress Oscar® for her role in this film, but the cast includes heavy hitters Robert De Niro (fellow Oscar® Winner), Bradley Cooper, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen just to name a few of the actors adding their star power to this story of triumph. Here’s what director, David O. Russell has to say:

JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce.

Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Oscar® Winner Jennifer Lawrence * stars with fellow Oscar® Winner Robert De Niro, **, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

*Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress, JOY, 2016, 2012; Actress, Silver Linings Playbook.

**1980, Actor, Raging Bull; 1974, Supporting Actor, The Godfather Part II.

Spy Review

SPY box art from Fox Home Entertainment.Melissa McCarthy stars in this hilarious, twisty, fresh take on the Super Spy genre. Somewhere between James Bond, Inspector Clouseau, and Austin Powers, Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) enters the field in this R rated comedy. Full of unexpected laughs and complete with custom spy gadgets, Agent Susan Cooper leaves the safety of her spy support tech desk to go under cover in Europe.

More capable than Clouseau, less suave than Bond and less preposterous than Powers, Cooper lets her heart and Spidey sense guide her. Sidekick Nancy (Miranda Hart), Bondesque Super Spy Bradley Fine (Jude Law), his CIA frenemy Rick Ford (Jason Statham), cold blooded bombshell Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne) and handsy Aldo (Peter Serafinowicz) round out the cast, each contributing mightily to the heart and hilarity of Writer/Director Paul Feig’s (Bridesmaids, The Heat) film.

We viewed the Unrated Version. The DVD also contains a copy of the Theatrical release and tons of bonus features, including redacted scenes, alternate scenes, gag reels, outtakes, commentary and How SPY Was Made. We predict a sequel!

Want to see the trailer?

Just for fun, I’ve linked to Amazon’s pages for some of the spy films and collections of films mentioned above. You may be able to figure out my favorites if you click through. Clouseau, famously played by Peter Sellers and reprised by Steve Martin is the bumbling French detective in The Pink Panther films. I wonder which you prefer? As far as Bond goes, there are 50 years of films to choose from beginning with the original Casino Royal starring David Niven (a complete snore in my book) through Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and most recently Daniel Craig (swoon). So far the only incarnations of British International Man Of Mystery, Austin Powers have all been played by Mike Meyers who also plays his own nemesis in the trio of comedies.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed SPY (Unrated). It made us laugh, gasp, chuckle, giggle and snort. Want to see it, too? It’s out on Blu-ray and DVD and available for view on demand. Plus we’ve got ONE copy to giveaway. Click here to enter for your chance to win SPY. Giveaway ends: October 7, 2015.
