The next morning while Kincaid and I were having coffee, Alysee walked into the kitchen. "Good morning, Alysee," I said, "How did you sleep?"
"I slept like the dead," she replied. "I was more tired than I realized. That bus ride wore me out."

My Stubborn Southern mind was made up. At the ripe old age of twenty-two, I was to become an old maid. Given the fact, I determined it was judicious of me to further my education, so I had taken the graduate exam and applied to the University of Georgia for a master's degree in education. Since the school was incidental to my momentous decision to enter the world of spinsterhood, the University of Georgia was selected based on the sole criterion of a college sorority sister who needed a roommate. This pivotal U-turn in my life was the indirect result of my college boyfriend of three years--the man I was to marry, settle down with in a cottage by the sea, and live with happily ever after--unceremoniously breaking up with me exactly twenty-four hours before my college graduation.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



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.
