REVIEW:
Such fun!
Every morning I would see and see what was in store when reading this book. Every day was a new little vignette about someone and the not-so-smart choices they make.
We have all laughed at someone's expense, possible even our own, and this book is exactly that. Small vignettes of people's decisions that are not of their best decisions, and we get a laugh at them. It's not hurtful or mean, most of these vignettes were in the news or otherwise.
For me, I am always amazed at how brain-dead people can be sometimes. You know it happens but to read about the mishaps and bad decisions really put it in perspective.
It is a harmful way to get a laugh and learn not to do that same thing yourself. You don't want to be the next ding-dong on the news anyway.....

Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
