This is a great documentary about a guy who goes to Santa school and becomes one of the many Santas in the US around Christmastime. My family always wants to watch Christmas movies around the holidays, and a lot of them are terrible. I bring this one for some relief.
I grew up with the cartoon, and prefer it, but I thought Carrey did a decent job portraying such an iconic animated creature. I'm not big on Christmas movies, but I do think this one is at least entertaining.
In 1958 there were laws against interracial marriage. It's hard for me to believe, but impossible not to when watching this true story of a couple who fought those laws and succeeded. A well done historical documentary.
The performances in this movie by Micheal Douglas, Matt Damon, and Rob Lowe (and everyone else, but those were the stand-outs) was very, very good. I liked it so much I watched it twice.
A film well done by Sofia Coppola, based on the article and later, the book written by Nancy Jo Sales about the Bling Ring, a group of teens who easily broke into celebrity homes and stole a ridiculous amount of stuff. Features include Paris Hilton's real home which was actually burgled by the group, Emma Watson's incredible portrayal of the leader of the group, and overall a well told story of a crazy thing that really happened.
