I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Ving Rhames, Steve Buchemi, Dan Aykroyd Marsha’s rating: 79% I totally get this movie and commend the scriptwriters for doing a good job at spinning out the characters and story nicely…except for the ending which was a little too rushed. (as usual, my complaint is always the ending).
Adam Sandler is Adam Sandler but he just isn’t so funny in here. Loved some of his one-liners here, though! He is capable of delivering those unique Sandler one-liners that kills you with laughter like no one else can. I’ve never heard of Kevin James before this movie (please forgive me for my ignorance) so, my judgment of his performance is on a clean slate…and it’s a pretty damn good one too! Unfortunately, in this movie, you'll notice that Sandler is one of the producers....so, you know who's wearing the pants here. If I had it my way, I thought Kevin James actually did a better job in this movie than Sandler did.
I was thinking that they were creeping along very shaky lines here…as in…we’re talking about gay movement here, boys, be careful where you thread. Gays may be gays but they’re a pretty strong bunch of people up there in the States. Anyway, they did a very good job out of turning the tables on us straight people – straight people turns out to be the unpredictable, unreasonable monsters here who uses the word ‘faggots’ freely on gays. Underneath the storyline lies one very simple message…it’s not wrong, nor criminal to be gay. It’s everyone’s right to be gay, despite the fact that Chuck and Larry were not gays, but only pretending to be gays. Their ‘act’ did not stop them from feeling for these people who had ‘different sexual preferences’. No complaints there. However, the biggest complaint I have (not the ending, this time) is Jessica Biel. She’s got nice boobs and we can ask Sandler how it feels like and how much those peaks of her felt since he had ‘first hand’ information about all of that in the movie but her character is just too….BIMBO. And eexxxcccuuuussseee mmmmeeee, she’s supposed to be a really smart lawyer and we find nothing wrong with her dancing in a Cat Woman suit on the bar, shaking her booty to a salivating bunch of men (I thought they were gay…well…). I mean….where’s the logic? So BIMBO! I would place 80% of the blame on the scriptwriters for making her so UNBELIEVABLE DUH!!!!! Her lines were along the lines of stupid stuff like, ‘Here, don’t believe me that my boobs are fake? Here…feel them. I don’t mind, feel them’ and she doesn’t see Sandler squirming around and trying to hide a hard-on! Oh, come on come on come on!!!! And the other 20% on her acting. It’s fake beyond belief. How they got out of the trouble of trying to defraud a government or insurance agency (which is which, I don’t give two piles of *toot* about) is beyond me. The judge was like, “Yo, you guys were so cool about the whole gay thing and now the world thinks you’re heroes, let me get you out of here” was too…..too….YOU find the word for me. Other than that, the movie was funny. I laughed at appropriate moments and felt moved at the right scenes. All in all, if someone had stuffed Jessica Biel’s face into her own bras, ‘I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry’ is a rather good one.

The Zohan? Hhhhmmm....I'll catch that one. What kind of trauma?? Is it a bad trauma or a good trauma (if ever there is such a thing)? Gory stuff, scary stuff, strange stuff, alien stuff...what trauma?

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
