Motherhood DVD Review & Giveaway *WINNER ANNOUNCED*

With a cast of Uma Thurman, Minnie Driver and Anthony Edwards, a straight-to-DVD release for this film seemed highly unusual.  After watching Motherhood, I understood why a nationwide theatrical release wasn’t in the cards. Motherhood, the film, is much like 24, the TV series, only with helicopter moms, status obsessed […]

The Jimmies – Trying Funny Stuff DVD Review

The Jimmies are HUGE in my house.  They’re probably the Bear’s fave band.  Nary a day goes by without her belting out “Everyday’s a holiday with you!”, rustling her hair along with “Bedhead”, or crooning to “Taddy” while the Mouse strums her air guitar and bounces around the living room […]

The Fine Friends Are Here – Dan Zanes DVD Review

Dan Zanes is amazing. His hair, the leg slide thing he does, his raspy voice, the musicians he surrounds himself with – all of it practically perfect in every way. The Fine Friends Are Here!, his latest live DVD release (on the delayed heels of 2005’s fine All Around the […]

Nursery University – Movie Review

For the first time in my life, I’m so very glad not to reside in the Big Apple. Enrolling my children into a preschool program was a breeze. Toured ’em, asked ’em some questions and picked the one that looks the best and is geographically convenient. Done. Oh, to have […]

Alice in Wonderland Trailer

Wow, this looks crazy and a little frightening (for some kids, like mine, at least). The trailer doesn’t excite me as much as Where The Wild Things Are, but still…should be quite a film.

My Very First Scholastic Treasury DVD Collection – OWTK DVD Review & Giveaway

Scholastic Storybook DVDs have a special place in our hearts and have served as our commercial free alternative to Noggin, PBSKids and the like.
