Ugly or cute?

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

I'm a freckle face.  I used to think my freckles were SO UGLY and wish that one day I would wake up and they would be gone. Instead, I woke up one day and realized that these freckles make me look younger! That is actually exciting once one reaches a certain age! 

Ugly is kind of an ugly word. That is why I'm so excited to tell you about a new film coming out this week called UGLY DOLLS.

In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities. The endearingly unique residents of Uglyville occasionally look to the sky above the town, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.

Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there’s something – anything – on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville. Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what’s on the other side. They discover another world – Perfection – a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the “real” world to find the love of a child.

In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, the UglyDolls will confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.  UGLYDOLLS releases in theaters this Friday, May, 3.

I'm so excited that my favorite baby elephant, DUMBO, is soaring back to the big screen next week!

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.

When I was a little girl, my grandfather took my sister and me to the circus every single year. He had a connection at the convention center where the circus was held and he got us first row seats every time.  One year, he got us into the circus. They put glittery vests and hats on us and we got to ride in a cart driven by an elephant while we waved to the crowd. My grandmother called us the "Queens of the Circus". My sister and I dreamed of becoming the pretty acrobats in the circus after that. They had lots of makeup, wore high heels (that they kicked off before climbing up to the ropes) and very glam outfits covered in jewels.  We outgrew the dream but I still can recall all of the sites and sounds of the Circus.  The memories of the excitement of the circus, plus the time with our Grandfather have lasted forever.

That is why I was so excited when Disney asked me to blog about DUMBO.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.   Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.  “Dumbo” soars into theaters on March 29

I'm headed to see it this weekend. Are you?
