I have 2 movies I enjoyed so much I wanted to recommend them briefly.
Tammy starring Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon:
I am admittedly a huge fan of Melissa, but even I was skeptical about this movie. It was such a pleasant surprise. It’s kinda corny, very funny, heartwarming and just might make you shed a tear. The characters are all vulnerable in their own way and it makes for an endearing storyline.
Bad Words starring Jason Bateman:
Truly hysterical in its ability to toss around harsh digs and undeserving bullying, this movie is both a journey of discovery, friendship, and a bit of revenge. The meanness of the main character is done in such a way that even though you deep down would die if it was your child, you are so busy laughing it does not phase you. There is one scene in particular that crosses such a line and yet I never laughed harder at a scene in a movie. And it all revolves around a Spelling Bee.
