Piranha (2010) Anyone who is interested in seeing this movie should not be disappointed. This 3-D adventure from last summer is wall-to-wall gore and nudity and it's all done in the name of fun. I'm not one for gory pictures, but Piranha is so much fun. It doesn't take itself seriously and it's hard to really buy into the over the top gore. One of my favorite actresses, Elizabeth Shue, is on hand as the local police officer who must save her Spring Break crazy town from the tiny little jaws of prehistoric mutant fish. Trust me, you haven't seen this much blood and boobies since a double feature at an 8th grade sleepover. This movie is filled with reasons for it's R rating: strong language, graphic nudity, sexual situations, gory horror violence, and recreational drug use.
Ernest Goes To Camp (1987) My kids and I have been watching the Ernest TV series which I finally picked up on DVD and they are loving it. They wanted to see more of ol' Ernie Baby so we popped in the first of Ernest's nine feature length films. It's a great summer movie that really captures the spirit of summer camp and it serves as a great vehicle for the Ernest character. Ernest is a handyman at a camp where he dreams of one day being a full fledged counselor. His dreams finally come true when he's put in charge of a group of misfit kids from a local detention center. There's a food fight, Ernest gets hit with alot of different things and tons of bits from Ernest's famous commercials are worked into the story. Before it's all over, the camp goes head to head with an evil land developer. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love evil land developers! As with all the Ernest movies, it's rated PG - this time for some violence. Good fun for the whole family.
Lady and the Tramp (1955) There's not much to say about this Disney classic except that it's easily in the top ten of Disney's greatest animated achievements. My kids love dogs and dog movies so it really was a crime that they hadn't seen this one yet. They loved it! It's rated G, although there is some discussion of canine promiscuity.
