For this week's inspirational renting, I've chosen two movies, one old, one newer.
I saw the trailer for the just released "Life As We Know It" and thought - hold on a minute - I've seen this before.
And I had - the premise is awfully close to that of "Baby Boom" with Diane Keaton, Sam Shepard and Harold Ramis.
I happen to own a copy and I decided to pop it in, as I hadn't seen it in probably 10 years. Even though it was released in 1987, this film really holds up and I found it just as funny today. Plus it has a terrific opening credits sequence by Linda Ellerbee - one of the best voices to ever cross the airwaves.
The other film I'd like to recommend it "Flawless" with Michael Caine and Demi Moore. It was released in 2007 but I don't remember hearing a single thing about it. I'm not even sure how we came to rent it - maybe my son recommended it - but it's terrific. A heist movie but like no heist movie you've ever seen. I won't say anymore because I don't want to spoil it.
So, get these movies on your radar for the weekend, pop some popcorn (with extra butter) and settle back for some light comedy/dram/action.
