Scariest Scary Movie #26 – Children of the Corn

Children of the Corn (1984, Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton, R.G. Armstrong) Outlander! We have your woman! Quick Plot: A bunch of freaky looking kids form a corn-cult around an even freakier looking kid and murder every adult in town. Scariest Scene: The opening sequence in the diner really starts this movie off with a meat cleaver to the chest. Or the scene when a demonic Isaac rises from the corn. Final Say: Children of the Corn doesn’t rank the highest among King adaptations; it can be crude, somewhat distasteful, and definitely did not age well. But that is what makes […]

My Boys “Take My Work Wife… Please”

Bobby and the hot Swedish nanny Elsa are getting married and in a hurry. To top it off, Bobby’s recruited PJ to help plan, using the dreaded “PJ, You’re a girl, right …” lead-in. I’m picturing it already, an episode or two into the future, a “STOP THE WEDDING!!!” cry, a la The Graduate. Andy’s new best friend is a female coworker Jo, played by My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Nia Vardalos. It quickly becomes apparent to everyone else that there is something more than just friendship between the two, that Andy has found himself a “work wife.” A woman […]

Each single friend brings another single friend and romance ensues. Well, that’s the theory. PJ invites the boys and focuses attention on the fact that they are all single. Maybe they should be trying a little harder to get out there and date more. At the same time, Andy hires a hot Swedish nanny and all the boys are beside themselves. They leap with joy through […]

There has been potential between PJ and […]

Step It Up and Dance: Damn Yankees

The Challenge This week’s challenge is Musical Theater. Some of the dancers are feeling pretty good about their chances to win this week. Cody and Mochi have both performed on Broadway. Oscar has appeared in many productions throughout Europe. Others without as much technical training are worried. Janelle and Michael are out of their element. Miguel has immunity from last week and cannot be eliminated, so he could care less about this challenge. Jason Alexander is the celebrity guest this week. He introduces the challenge, an audition piece from his production of Damn Yankees. In real life, George Costanza seems […]

Step It Up

Posted by Dizzy Miss Lizzy Let me preface this by saying that I cannot dance. I love to dance, but I am really not good. Seinfeld fodder on the dance floor. Downright dangerous on the dance floor. Bravo’s new reality show Step It Up and Dance really puts it all into perspective for me. Step It Up and Dance follows Project Runway‘s patented formula perfectly – the model/actress host, experienced mentor, the guest judge, immunities and a catchy dismissal phrase. However, none of the new SIUAD structural counterparts match the charisma of Heidi Klum and company. Elizabeth Berkley’s face doesn’t […]
