But can their new relationship survive the test?

Sweet & Funny…
I loved this book. It was like a good mirror on my past life – Each Character in this book! I found myself reading this book with an English Accent! It describes the habits of human beings when we get comfortable with “Medocracy”. It was a real eye-opener on my own life & a real page turner.

Liked it very much
My favorite Lisa Jewell books are still “Ralph’s Party” and “Thirtynothing”, but I definitely enjoyed this one as well. The “chick lit” genre is really too narrow of a label for her work; her protagonists are never typical or schematic and her plot lines are realistic and clever. Can’t wait for the next one !

Not your typical Brit chick lit!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, and decided to read this strictly based on the author’s past novels. But once I got into the story, I couldn’t put it down. The characters in this book are so REAL, so down-to-earth and relatable.

The main character, Toby, undergoes a slow transformation throughout the novel on his journey to start living, a transformation that is at times a bit sad — I felt like I wanted to give him a big hug! :) The other characters in this book, Toby’s lodgers, are well-written too – I found myself caring about all of them, and even got a bit misty-eyed when Joanne’s backstory was finally revealed.

This is not your standard Brit chick-lit novel. It is so much more! With a satisfying, but not tidy, ending. I highly recommend this book!

Where To Buy Under The Tray By Reggie And The Full Effect At The Lowest Price?

Under The Tray By Reggie And The Full Effect

Why Buy A Under The Tray By Reggie And The Full Effect?
A hodgepodge of skits, alternative emo rock, and quirky electro-pop, Under the Tray continues the tongue-in-cheek style of 2000’s Promotional Copy. Reggie’s only member, Get Up Kids’ keyboard player James DeWees, takes full advantage of his solo status, bouncing over the musical map as the mood suits him. Similar in method to the Kids, Nerf Herder, and Weezer, DeWees mixes a lost youth vibe and hugely appealing choruses with goofball energy. DeWees’s willy-nilly use of disparate styles sometimes distracts from his obvious talent. Still, whether he’s affecting a fake English accent for the new wave Mood 4 Love or breaking out the heavy-metal leathers for Apocalypse Wow, DeWees’s musical intelligence is always evident. –Matthew Cooke

funny, funny, and awesome
i dunno why people don’t like this CD. it’s so great! i like this CD waaaay better than Promotional Copy. anywho, back to the CD itself. there’s a lot of “drunk girls” throughout the entire CD, which are all hilarious. the joke songs are purdy good too. “MOOD 4 LUV” is so awesomely funny. my friend has made me play that songs in the car SO many times. the 8 or 9 real songs are wonderful too. they may have goofy names, but songs like “Your Bleedin Heart”, “What Won’t Kill You…”, “Image is Nothing…”, “Happy V-Day”, and “Megan 2k2″ are so wonderful. i never got bored with them. i can play this CD over and over and not get tired of it. bad day? listen to the jokes songs/ drunk girls and cheer right up! BUY IT!

Great job,Reggie!
yeah,i remember the times i was playing burnout:takedown..that’s so cool game,and as for me burnout 3 is much better than revenge-for example,talkin’ about soundtrack(or gameplay,presentation )..reggie’s “..smack and katy” is “THE anthem” of the game,I guess.aferwards,whole Under the tray is very specific,unique and catchy stuff!jokes mixed with 100% catchy melodies=under the tray.even design of cd is a joke.
there’s no any fillers,or just boring [...]!of course this cd contains 17 tracks,but only 9 of them are songs,but this is it-this is true,real concept lp,its not playlist with numbers of SAME “semisongs”(Nickelback,do you hear me???!)

Robin Hood – Men In Tights Starring Carey Elwes, Richard Lewis, Roger Rees, Amy Yasbeck, Isaac Hayes

Robin Hood - Men In Tights Starring Carey Elwes, Richard Lewis, Roger Rees, Amy Yasbeck, Isaac Hayes

Why Buy A Robin Hood – Men In Tights Starring Carey Elwes, Richard Lewis, Roger Rees, Amy Yasbeck, Isaac Hayes?
Its not Blazing Saddles, but there are some chuckles to be found in Mel Brookss 1993 spoof of the Robin Hood legend. Cary Elwes is Robin (with a lighthearted jab at Kevin Costners bad English accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves), while Richard Lewis plays an angst-ridden King John, and Roger Rees a snotty Sheriff of Nottingham. Comic David Chappelle has some good moments as the only black member of Robinss noble thieves, and Brooks does his own spin on Friar Tuck: Rabbi Tuchman. The song-and-dance sequences featuring a chorus line of the Merry Men (Were men / men in tights) is vintage Brooks, but otherwise the film cant get any traction. –Tom Keogh

Fantastic classic!
This is one of my most favorite movies ever! If you’ve ever seen any other Robin Hood movie, you’ll enjoy laughing and making fun of it while watching this movie. Mel Brooks is genius!

Best Comedy Ever….. MEL BROOKS GENIUS!!!!!

Why Buy A Robin Hood – Prince Of Thieves (Two-Disc Special Extended Edition) Starring Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Christian Slater, Alan Rickman?
Kevin Costners lousy English accent is a small obstacle in this often exciting version of the Robin Hood fable. That aside, its refreshing to have a preface to the old story in which we meet the robber hero of Sherwood Forest as a soldier in King Richards Crusades, coming home to find his people under siege from the cruelties of the Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman). After Robin and his community of outcasts and fighters take to the trees, director Kevin Reynolds (Fandango, 187) is on more familiar narrative ground, and he goes for the gusto with lots of original action (Robin shoots two arrows simultaneously from his bow in two directions). Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, as Marion, makes a convincing damsel in distress, and Morgan Freeman brings dignity to his role as Robins Moor friend. Alan Rickman, however, gets the most attention for his scene-chewing role as the rotten sheriff, an almost campy performance that is highly entertaining but perhaps a little out of sorts with the rest of the film. –Tom Keogh

Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves
I know this might sound corny but I really enjoyed Kevin Costner’s performance as the price of thieves , he I thought brought the essence of the charter , yes I know he didn’t have and English accent neither did Clark Gable in Gone with the wind but people still loved the movie , this movie was helped out a lot by those two very great actors Alan Rickman and Morgan Freeman , both did great jobs especially Alan Rickman as the sheriff of Nottingham funny stuff, this has to one of my favorite versions of Robin hood , my favorite scene of the movie is robin looking at Maid Marian rowing out towards the lake in the mist.

Have gun, will travel!
I actually enjoyed this version of Robin Hood. But, I am still chuckling about Kevin of Lynwood’s accent laid on an English Legend. I fully expected LT. Dunbar to whip out a rifle at any moment.

Still… Great Film!

Robin Hood
This movie is awesome. Has been one of my favorites for a long time. Kevin Costner at his best. Great supporting cast as well. This movie is second to none. Great gift along with Three Musketeers starring Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, and Rebecca Demornay.
