Mama Nibbles: People Like Us in Theatres June 29th

People Like Us in Theatres June 29th

     A couple nights ago I went to a special screening of People Like Us with my husband.  It was nice to get out of the house, my sister watched our children so I knew they were in safe hands...I love my family.  So we got to the movie and took our seats.  I always sneak some kind of hard candy into the movies and this time it was Nips, I love their butter rum.  As I sat there sucking on my candy a million thoughts ran through my head, there is just so much going on in our busy lives and I was thinking to myself that I could hardly believe June was almost finished. I grabbed my hubby's big warm hand as the lights dimmed and previews begin.  The movie began and I loved the way it took off, no nonsense, I wasn't feeling clueless and I already felt like I was a part of the characters lives just 5 minutes in.  The whole entire movie left me on the edge of my seat, like a good church sermon or lecture it was amazing and it drew me right in.  I found myself being able to relate with so much in the movie, the feeling of finding it hard to trust family, the feelings of loss and regret.  I connected on a deep level.  The only thing that bothered me was the use of profanity a couple of times, it could have been left out and still had the same effect.  The storyline provided many opportunities for joy and laughter and was balanced out with many dramatic scenes.  Chris Pine was phenomenal in this film as was Elizabeth Banks and their younger co-star Michael D Addario.  At the end of the movie there was not a dry eye in the theater.  I left feeling happy about life, happy about family and feeling like I could tackle any of my issues with my family...I was inspired.  I highly recommend you take your family to see People Like Us, it was the best movie I have watched all year besides The Avengers.

From DreamWorks Pictures comes “People Like Us,” a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine (“Star Trek”) as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father's estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father's last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family—and re-examine his own life choices in the process. The film also stars Olivia Wilde, Michael Hall D’Addario, Philip Baker Hall, Mark Duplass and Michelle Pfeiffer. A DreamWorks Pictures presentation, “People Like Us” is directed by Alex Kurtzman, produced by Roberto Orci, Bobby Cohen and Clayton Townsend, with the screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jody Lambert. The film releases in U.S. theaters on June 29, 2012. (DREAMWORKS PICTURES) This film is rated PG-13.
