I read this on a whim at the suggestion of a friend. It proved to be a quick, laugh out loud read. Bernadette (the mother), is very tounge-in-cheek and speaks to the rediculousless of one-upping Mom's. The voice in this is perfect. I'm usually not a fan of chapter by chapter narrator switches, but this was well done and left me wanting more.
This is a good family movie-- it has both kid and adult humor. Not as good as some other Pixar movies, but worth a watch.
A Tom Cruise classic. Many, many "one liners" in this movie!
If you like Emily Giffin's other books, this is much of the same. However, I found this to be a little more "grown up" with more introspection.
I use some of these short clips as a fun intro to topics in my middle school history classes. They stay pretty true to the story and are quick intros that grab students attention!
