I received a review copy of The Sweeter Side of Life and Meddling Mom in order to facilitate my review.  All thoughts and words are my own.

I share a lot of movies with you all, many of which are specifically for the kiddos or the whole family.  But sometimes moms need a little chick flick break, so today I thought I’d share a new double feature available from the Hallmark Channel.  The DVD includes Meddling Mom and The Sweeter Side of Life.

The Hallmark Channel Double Feature Meddling Mom & The Sweeter Side of Life

I had to start with The Sweeter Side of Life for two reasons.  One, it stars Kathryn Morris who played Detective Lilly Rush in Cold Case, which was one of my favorite shows in the mid-2000s.  And two, it’s about baking, which is one of my favorite things to do when I get a little free time.

It’s official!  Disney’s Super Buddies on Blu-ray and DVD is available as of today.  We were fortunate enough to receive a review copy a few days ago and let me just say – it is absolutely adorable.

As I’ve mentioned, Bubbles is totally in love with dogs right now.  She even has a stuffed dog that we recently brought home that she calls “Super Hero Dog”.  So when the Disney Super Buddies Blu-ray showed up she started jumping up and down and asking if we could watch it.  Since it was too hot to be outside we decided it was the perfect time to check it out.

I received a preview copy of Teen Beach Movie in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions and words are my own.

What happens when you take a themed musical and breath Disney magic on it?  You get Teen Beach Movie, a fun new musical that the entire family can enjoy together.  It goes without saying how much I love Disney movies and this one did not disappoint.

Disney’s Teen Beach Movie is kind of like Grease meets West Side Story and they all decide to hang out on the beach.  For someone that loves the old musicals (I seriously couldn’t begin to count the number of times I have watched Grease), it was a great premise.  Unlike some of the musicals of the 70s and 80s, though, this is much more family-friendly all the way through, making it a good way to introduce your kiddos to the genre.

I was provided with an advanced review copy of The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec. All opinions are mine.

I’m not always the hugest fan of foreign films.  I like to read, I like to watch movies, but trying to read the screen while taking the movie in doesn’t exactly spell enjoyment.  But recently I heard about a new adventure movie titled The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec that made me re-think my foreign movie stance.

I read the following boilerplate for the film and with talk of deserts, mummies, and museums, I thought Adèle sounded a bit like a female Indiana Jones:

The year is 1912. This is the story of an intrepid young reporter Adèle Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death. Her journey would take her to distant lands to face many dangers beneath the sands. She will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on display in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the creature subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures include many more extraordinary surprises…
