What to watch: Six quick reviews
By Diana Grote
No Looking Back – Watch on Hoopla: One of my all-time favorite movies. Rarely can be found on television anymore and not available ILL. Bon Jovi is my favorite band, so of course if it stars Jon I try to watch it! It’s about a hometown, old loves, new loves, and friendship. I would recommend this movie to any Jon Bon Jovi, Edward Burns, Lauren Holly, or Blythe Danner fans. Little City – Watch on Hoopla: Another Jon movie! This movie has been in my saved for later cart for at least 5 years. It’s about adults in San Francisco, love, loss, relationships, and the boundaries of friendship. With an all-star cast, I would recommend to fans of Jon and anyone trying to make it in the singles world. Lachey's Bar – Watch on Hoopla: This is a reality show following Nick and Drew Lachey as they embark on opening a bar in Cincinnati while Nick is still living in L.A. The business side as well as personal life are entwined. I was so happy when I found this! I had only gotten to see part of it when it was out, so now I got to see all of it! I would recommend to any Nick or Drew fans, 98 degrees fans (which I am not a boy band fan, but to each their own) also to anyone trying to get a business up and running.
Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her -- Watch on Hoopla: This movie was alright. It’s the story about 5 women going through trials and tribulations that life hands you. It has the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon thing going on in it. All their lives are entwined in some way. With an all-star cast I’m sure many would be interested in watching it.
Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean — Watch on Kanopy: I first saw this movie when I was a little girl and really liked it. It is the film adaption of a Broadway play. James Dean fans reunite on the 20th anniversary of his death. Old truths and hidden secrets are revealed amongst lifelong friends. Any James Dean, Cher, Kathy Bates fans. Also if you enjoy plays.
Egg -- Watch on Kanopy: Two old art school friends get together with their now husbands and talk about life, marriage, motherhood and friendship. It was ok. It didn’t captivate my attention and I was ready for it to be over (lol). The acting was good, though, so someone else could really like it. It stars Christina Hendricks, so maybe a good option for fans of Mad Men.
