Ginnifer Goodwin as Aunt Bea
Teen sensation Selena Gomez (Wizards of Wavery Place, Hannah Montana,) teams up with newcomer Joey King in this delightful coming-of-age comedy based on the best-selling books by Beverly Cleary. Ramona (King) is a little girl with a very big imagination and a nose for mischief. Her playful antics keep everyone in her loving family on their toes, including older sister Beezus (Gomez), who's just trying to survive her first year of high school. Through all the ups and downs of childhood, Ramona and Beezus learn that anything's possible when you believe in yourself and rely on each other.
This is a film I never even heard of before I found it cheap one day at work and curiosity got the best of me. I got it because it stars Selena Gomez who I used to watch in "Wizards of Waverly Place" with Brittany. When I first bought the disc (last year) I watched the trailer. And lets just say I was happy I got it so cheap! As I didn't have very high hopes of it being a good film. Which is why it took me so long to watch it. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Sure I have seen better movies... but they made it easy to care about the characters. The storyline was interesting and fun. Sure the movie is geared to a younger crowd but I found it well worth the time put in to watch it.

Baby Mama, a review by Tom
Title: Baby Mama
Director: Michael McCullers
Length: 90 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.85
Audio: English: Dolby Digital TrueHD, French: DTS 5.1, Spanish: DTS 5.1
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish
Sharp comic talents collide in this hilarious comedy of opposites. Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey - 30 Rock) an uptight single executive, has put her career first all her life. At 37, she finally decides to have a baby, but discovers she has only a small chance of becoming pregnant. Desperate, Kate decides to use a surrogate mom, but her uptight world is turned upside down when free-spirited Angie (Amy Poehler - Blades of Glory) moves in to her apartment and the pair engage in a comic battle of wills. Also starring Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine) and Sigourney Weaver (The Village)
My Thoughts:This movie was predictable but fun. Tina Fey was great as usual. I had to laugh out loud a few times during the movie, which does not happen a lot.

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom
Star Trek: Voyager
1.03 Time and Again
Writer: David Kemper (Screenwriter), Michael Piller (Screenwriter), David Kemper (Original Material By)
Director: Les Landau
Cast: Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Robert Beltran (Commander Chakotay), Roxann Biggs-Dawson (Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres), Jennifer Lien (Kes), Robert Duncan McNeill (Lieutenant Tom Paris), Ethan Phillips (Neelix), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Tim Russ (Lieutenant Tuvok), Garrett Wang (Ensign Harry Kim), Nicolas Surovy (Pe'Nar Makull), Joel Polis (Ny Terla), Brady Bluhm (Latika), Ryan MacDonald (Shopkeeper), Steve Vaught (Officer), Jerry Spicer (Guard)
Voyager investigates a planet which was annihilated by an accident. Janeway and Paris are transported back in time the day before that accident and they have to find a way to prevent it.
This episode is okay. The best bit is the scene with the doctor. And after knowing how the character of Janeway develops/acts throughout this series, the scene where Janeway gets smacked in the face is somehow funny, I must admit.
