A Review of the "Mother's Day" Trailer

There are many things I regret spending time on in my 27 years of life:

- Playing "The Sims" so much and setting up ungodly scenarios for my characters.
- Writing "Frasier" fanfiction as a young girl (I married Niles btw, I guess in some other world, we have several kids by now. Happy birthday, David Hyde Pierce, love of my early childhood!)
- Most of the things I posted on Livejournal as a petulant teenager.

But among the things I regret is watching the "Mother's Day" trailer. Holy crap. Why did I do that to myself? I might as well have watched a candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow about her lifestyle. It would have had the same effect.

Frickin' Gwyneth Paltrow. That's another can of worms for some other Sunday.

 
So I listen to a lot of Ted talks and Super Soul Sundays when I work or am at home. I find them really comforting. I'm also probably 40 when I'm not busy being 15 again.
 
And sometimes, I get these ads on YouTube that I just can't get rid of. Usually I'm able to skip after five seconds, but not all the times. I've listened to more advertisements for local car dealers than I care to admit.
 
The other night, the trailer for "Mother's Day" came on. At first I laughed. What is this Hollywood voodoo? Oh Kate Hudson! What has she been up to lately? Girl, so proud of you for dating Nick Jonas for a hot minute. SLAY.
 
And then I couldn't turn away. And I couldn't figure out, why? What's happening?
 
Julia Roberts. Jennifer Aniston. Kate Hudson. That guy who does all the really obnoxious voice0vers. GARY "Never Been Kissed," "The Princess Diaries," "Pretty Woman" Marshall.


This is going to be the most painfully delightful rom-com trainwreck of the year. I promise you. Unless Cameron Diaz is releasing something soon.

 
You all see where this is headed, right? YOU'RE WELCOME.
 
Are people going to see this movie? Yes. It looks very sentimental and fluffy, and some people really dig that. I mean, sometimes I eat Nutella. It happens. Will I see it? Hell NO.
 
I like the idea of this, really, but I feel like the whole formula started with "Valentine's Day" and that utterly forgettable New Year's movie and even almighty classic "Love Actually" have beat this to death. Like, I get it. Oh my god. A holiday, and people coming together. Yes, I believe in hope and love too, and I believe that Sandra Bullock will find happiness eventually. And I believe Nutella has no calories either. 30Rock's spoof was brilliant; that should have been the "mic drop" moment, but alas.
 
In conclusion: This movie will get 2 stars, my Mom will see it, and I'll pass it at Redbox come September.
 
I want my life back, Garry Marshall.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
