#Giveaway: Enough Said (BluRay)

Everyone’s Favorite Funny Lady - Reliving Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ top moments




To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Enough Said on January 14th, let’s look at some top screen moments from the film’s leading lady, Julia Louis- Dreyfus. Julia’s resume means serious business with star performances in shows such as Seinfeld, Veep and Saturday Night Live. Believe it or not, her screen debut was given by comedy master Woody Allen in the 1986 hit feature Hannah and her Sisters. Working with the great writer/director clearly had a positive effect on her future career playing comedic roles.  Here are a few of our favorites:

Elaine Benes – Seinfeld
Elaine Benes—old flame and now good friend of Jerry—is possibly Julia’s most famous role.
Favorite moment: Elaine's nickname becomes "Nip", after she accidentally shows a nipple on a Christmas card, created by Kramer. Mortified at first, Elaine later crops the wardrobe malfunction off of the photograph and uses it for her health club ID. How resourceful!
Leslie – Deconstructing Harry
Deconstructing Harry marks Julia’s second time working with writer-director, Woody Allen. Allen plays a writer, and Julia brings to life one of the fictional characters from his work.
Favorite moment: Julia’s character and another of Harry’s fictional characters are caught in an intimate moment by a blind woman who enters the room unexpectedly. Hilarity ensues when the couple continue to misbehave while the blind women obliviously engages them in conversation.
Maggie Lizer – Arrested Development
Maggie Lizer, or Maggie “lies her ass off,” is an Orange County attorney and brief love interest of the show’s main character Michael Bluth. Lizer manages to give lawyers an even worse reputation, as she uses every trick in the book to gain sympathy from the judge and juries on her case. 
Favorite moment: Being led to believe that she is blind, we later find out that Lizer has only been pretending to not be able to see to help her cheat on her bar exam—and get free pizza.
Selina Meyer- Veep
With grand ambitions and passions like passions environmental conservation, job creation and Senate reform, Meyer is a politician we want to root for. If only it wasn’t for her incompetent staff and political red tape waiting to thwart even her most humble ambitions…
Favorite moment: Selena suddenly comes down with a stomach virus during a photo op at a local frozen yogurt shop. Her intestinal troubles cause a hasty retreat back to the limo, proving even the Vice President isn’t immune to an embarrassing moment.
Eva – Enough Said
As divorced single parent Eva, we get to see Julia in a role that not only displays the comedic chops that we know and love, but also the softer, more dramatic side of her acting range. Eva’s courtship with fellow divorcée Albert (James Gandolfini) is a modern love story, full of nuances, real moments and—of course—more than a few laughs.
Favorite moment: Awkward! Eva overhears her new best friend talking on the phone with her ex-husband—who also happens to be Eva’s new boyfriend.

    My favorite role of James' is his cameo in "True Romance" as Virgil. He didn't have a lot screen time, but he had the most memorable presence in the film.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
