First off let me preface this review by saying I am not the biggest fan of Pixar. I feel that that previous story lines have been weak.

Rocky V (which most people considered the end of the series) had Rocky back in inner city Philadelphia and pretty much content with his life. He was not wealthy but had his dignity and his family. Approximately, ten years have past since we last saw Rocky.   The Italian Stallion is now the owner and host of his Italian Restaurant (appropr... Read More

Step into a "Freaky" time with this 2003 remake of Disney's classic Freaky Friday. This time the daughter is played by the up and coming star, Lindsey Lohan, and her mother is played by the wonderful Jamie Lee Curtis. Anna Coleman and her mother, Tess, never seem to understand each other. They both seem to always shout instead of speak to... Read More
