April’s 5 Word Movie Reviews – Join in!

Once a month I feature the movies I’ve seen for the first time with a 5 word ‘review’.  Only it’s not really a review.  For that I need your help.  I hope that you’ll add your 5 words to my 5 words and that someone else will add their 5 words and so on until we have a a fun hodgepodge of words that make up a ‘review’.

This month you can give money to charity by contributing your 5 words (Details here).  Please join the fun 🙂  Past 5 Word Reviews here.

  3. I’ve heard of the Hot Tub one but none of the other ones. They sound interesting!

  4. I haven’t seen any of these either. But I must have seen My Man Godfrey as a teenager at some point. I was such a old-movie fanatic back then.

    • I thought it would have been better if Godfrey hadn’t fallen for that silly Carole Lombard!
