  • The Pacifier
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆


    The pacifier a really cute movie that I would watch again. Vin Diesel is a navy seal officer who gets a job to babysit children of a fellow navy seal who was killed for a program he was working on. He has a tough time at first but in the end is loved by the children. A very nice movie I would recommend watching

  • Fist fight
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Comedy. Hilarious. Fun To Watch. Good Actors. Good Ending. Fast Paced.

    Teachers behaving badly opposed to the students.  This movie was soo funny.   Everyone is geared up for the big fight after school (except for one participant). The characters were fun to watch as the build up to the end of the school day came near.  I enjoyed watching this movie.  I laughed from beginning til the end.

  • Girls trip
    ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    Comedy. Rauchy. Foul Language. Good Ending. Nice Cast. Long-time Friendships

    The girlfriend's get away trip theme was good.  I could not enjoy the movie because it had too much foul language in almost every scene. Some scenes were funny.   It did, however, have a very good cast.

  • Once upon an eid Stories of Hope and Joy by 15… by Ali, Nujood.
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
    Have you ever gotten distracted while your brownies were in the oven - and burned the whole batch? Or maybe your friend’s bike got into an accident so you begrudgingly lent him yours? Perhaps you've dealt with guilt over things in life that were beyond your control. Or had sickness in the family, and took on the difficult task of helping someone close to you participate and find joy in a special day, even when they are not feeling 100%. Once Upon an Eid is a delightful, uplifting anthology of short stories about topics like these, and more, which kids and adults can enjoy, learn from, and see themselves in. This thoroughly enjoyable book allows the reader to experience Eid through the eyes of a number of different people, of various ages and genders, from different countries and cultural backgrounds. Some stories are lighthearted and funny, others more bittersweet. But even though the stories are all unique, each shows the important role that family and community play in our lives, no matter who we are. If you're looking for something to elevate your spirits and touch your heart, especially during Ramadan, give this book a try! I listened to the audiobook which features Siiri Scott and Neil Shah and this really brought the characters to life for me, but I'm certain the print version is engaging as well. Even though the stories are fiction, this put me in mind of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books that were popular when I was younger, due to the inspirational and spiritual nature of the stories. I'd recommend this book for 4th grade and up.

  • Tyler Perry's Madea goes to jail
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Drama. Comedy. Romance. Memorable Characters. Touching. Strong Acting. Sensitive Subject Matters. Heart-warming.

    Although this film deals with many sensitive subjects it will still have you laughing when Madea shows up. The actors and actresses were very convincing in thier roles.  Also adding to the comedy is Tamala and David Mann . It's not a lot of scenes with Madea in jail, but, it enough of them to keep you wondering  WWMD... "what would Madea do".
