:: Movie Fix:: #MommaApproved

Did you grow up in the 90's? I kinda did, okay, I totally did! This past weekend I had a total flashback to about 8th grade when this came out:

We took our kids to watch the new movie this past weekend, really more so my son because my daughter is not a good movie-goer; she uses the bathroom about 4 times and talks the entire time. In the end I think my Husband and I enjoyed it more than they did! It was funny and such a great way to introduce a “classic” to a new generation! Cowabunga baby!!! 

We will definitely be buying the DVD, favorite scene anything Mikey was involved in he is HILARIOUS! Especially the elevator scene.... M.C. Mikey! Very family friendly. 

Have you seen it? What did you think? 

::When the Game Stands Tall:: This movie comes out today!!! I was invited to see it but wasn't able to make it! Hope to catch it soon, looks really good and so inspiring! I would think great beginning of the school year story for any football family out there.  "Inspired by a true story, When the Game Stands Tall tell the journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took a high school football team from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport."

::Cantinflas::  Comes out next Friday August 29th. I was invited to a pre-screening last week for this movie in association with Latina Bloggers Connect.

As a child I grew up watching Cantinflas, so I was very excited to watch this movie.  I thought it was great! Oscar Jaenada does a wonderful job of portraying such an amazingly talented and beloved Mexican actor/comedian. I think the movie captured the essence of who Mario Moreno was. I definitely LOVE the exposure this movie will give all of the upcoming Mexican actors. {FULL MOVIE REVIEW AND INTERVIEW WITH ACTOR OSCAR JAENADA NEXT FRIDAY!}

::Movies that we are looking forward ::



My son caught the commercial of this during another movie and he has been obsessed ever since! We can’t wait. Best part is it comes out during his Birthday month so he is so looking forward to turning 5! September 26th is it's release date. 


::The Book of Life::

This movie caught my eye on Facebook... I think it will be a great movie to help further explain "El Dia de Los Muertos" to my children. We visit the Dia de Los Muertos Altars every year here in Houston so this will be perfect for our yearly lesson! 

This movie is going to be filled with amazing star voices such as; Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna and Christina Applegate. It is scheduled to be released on October 17, 2014.


::The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1::
Set to release November 21st, who isn't ready for another Katniss butt kicking adventure!? I know I am!

What about you, what are you watching in the theaters this weekend!!??
