Having overcome the demons of his past, Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) is ready to start over with his new girlfriend Megan (Jaime Pressly) and her two adorable kids, Wyatt (Steele Stebbins) and Becky (Ashley Rickards). When their house is plaguedby a rash of bizarre paranormal events, Malcolm turns for help to his buddy Miguel (Gabriel Iglesias) and exorcist Father Williams (Cedric the Entertainer) in an attempt to drive the evil spirits from his home. But it turns out it’s not just the house that’s haunted…

Our thoughts:

I didn’t see the first A Haunted House, but knowing that we really enjoy a good horror movie, and we also really enjoy comedy, this movie synopsis sounds perfect for our house. Turns out it is a bit too crude and adult to watch with our teenage daughter. I expected some of this, but it was all a bit much. The jokes in this movie made all three of us uncomfortable to be watching together. Now, on our own, we laughed pretty hard at some of the scenes, but far from all of them. I’d give this movie a 4 out of 10 rating.

Worth mentioning – Gabriel Iglesias is one of our favorites, seeing him do stand-up or in a movie is never a disappointment.

A Haunted House 2 might be worth watching if you know what to expect, or if you enjoyed the first installment. Keep in-mind there is a lot of explicit sexual scenes and language, this movie is rated R for a reason.

A Haunted House 2 is available now to rent or purchase!

The Best Hollywood Boyfriends & Enter to win The Other Woman on Blu-ray #Giveaway

The Other Woman is coming to DVD and Blu-ray, July 29th!

theotherwomantitle09

To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, here is a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

1. Noah Calhoun- The Notebook

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”

2. Jack Dawson- The Titanic

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you. And I’m thankful for that, Rose. I’m thankful.”

3. Harry Burns- When Harry Met Sally

“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

4. Leo Collins- The Vow

“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”

5. Lloyd Dobler- Say Anything

“What I really want to do with my life — what I want to do for a living — is I want to be with your daughter. I’m good at it.”

6. Sam Wheat- Ghost

“I love you, Molly. I’ve always loved you.”

8. Patrick Verona- 10 Things I Hate About You

“It’s not everyday you find a girl who’ll flash someone to get you out of detention.”

9. Augustus Waters- The Fault In Our Stars

“I’m in love with you and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

The above love story + an evening alone with my girls + the below party pack courtesy of Universal Home Entertainment = one fun girls night viewing party!

endlesslove_party_001

I love that my daughter’s are old enough to share in my obsession for movies. Anytime I can get them both to commit to a “movie night” makes me happy. Our most recent “movie night” started with a nice dinner together, followed by painting our nails a romantic pink (included in our party pack). It was so much fun! I had no idea how much laughing can be involved while painting someone’s nails. We then got comfy and indulged in pink cupcakes and strawberries while watching Endless Love on Blu-ray.

endlesslove_viewingparty_4444

We knew we were in for a good “chick-flick”, but the movie was much better than I expected. Exciting and emotional. I don’t want to share any spoilers, but can tell you it’s the perfect choice for any “girls night” in. Especially if the girls staying in to watch are teenagers.

It was a romantic pink covered viewing party for sure. Even our basset hound, Foxy Roxy took part in the evening.
