April’s 5 Word Movie Reviews – with money for charity

You know the drill, add your 5 words to mine and earn $1 for charity.  Once we get to $100 the person with the most reviews will choose the charity.  Click here to see the past winners, the charities they chose and to see the other reviews you can add to.  You guys are off to a good start with $46 so far.

Edited to add-After I saw Feel good movie for 42 it seemed wrong. It is a serious movies about deplorable behavior in some.  It’s the behavior of the good guys that made me feel good.  I’m sure I just made that more confusing than it needed to be.

  1. I’ve only seen one of these (Huntsman). I’d add these five words: Stewart is no charming princess.

  2. Even though I don’t typically respond to your contests (I’m either too busy or too lazy – not sure which!), I appreciate the variety in your blog. I aspire to make mine as interesting and diverse as yours.

  4. The only one I’ve seen, and it’s been a while, is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I’d say: Family’s love triumphs over tragedy.

  5. The only one I’ve seen is Puss in Boots and I have to admit to a slight bias – I’ve had a crush on Antonia Banderas for years.
