The escaped prisoner is Jimmy Conway, a convicted murderer serving life behind bars. He returns to the isolated outpost seeking revenge. Now caught in the middle of what quickly becomes a horrifying blood bath, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive.
This is where I want to say from the bottom of my heart, Roger Ebert is the nicest person you will ever meet. He could have been arrogant, he could have cared less. After all, none of my reviews are published in print, yet he listened and showed I mattered. And that is why I love him. What an experience, I will never forget. And... you can bet I will email him.
IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY (Rated PG-13)
Author: Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments series
LIFE AS WE KNOW IT (Rated PG-13)
In the romantic comedy, “Life As We Know It,” Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming caterer and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) is a promising network sports director. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is the dislike they have for each other and the love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when they suddenly become all that Sophie has in this world, Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside to become caregivers.
To be honest, I wasn't so sure I would like this movie. The plot seemed predictable and over all the themed appeared as if it would be generic.
Oh was I wrong.
From the opening of this movie, I found myself laughing out loud throughout the entire film. I've always known that Heigl could do comedy (she was awesome in Knocked Up) but she simply amazes me time and time again, as she is able to act effortlessly with any actor that she is cast against. Her chemistry with Josh Duhamel felt genuine (and can I add, Josh D is smoking hot) and she has the ability to make you laugh at her, or cry along side her. I forgive her for leaving Grey's Anatomy.
Now, needless to say this is a romantic comedy and the situation that the two characters were thrust upon, horrific. As the two find themselves the caregivers noted in their beloved friends will, they without choice, find themselves a family, with the adorably cute Miss Sophie in the middle. As much as I laughed, I have to admit, I cried as well as I watched these two characters, (Heigl and Duhamel) explore what it is they truly want in life. Amazingly, people's goals change and that is exactly the moral of the movie-life cannot be planned.
If I had a half star, I'd give it 4 1/2. It really was nearly flawless. Funny, sexy, sad and sweet. Do check it out in the movie theatres as it premieres this Friday, October 8th 2010.
Released by Warners Bros.
