Big news, Laura and I both saw the same movie again! I think we might even agree on this one too.  I liked it and if Laura says she doesn’t like it in her review it’s just because she’s trying to be difficult.  Laura is the bad cop, the Ebert if you will.  Anyways, I’ve been using facebook for a few years now so I assumed that the movie was actually based on me.  I mean I have like 478 friends and counting on facebook so I’m pretty popular.  So of course, I was dying to see who would play myself in this documentary of my life so I rushed out to see the movie.  I was let down, I mean big time.  The movie was not about me at all, but it was about the founders of facebook.  I left for half of the movie and cried to myself in the washroom then I shook off the disappointment and returned to the theater.  The movie was actually really great.  The banter back and forth between characters reminded me of Dawson’s Creek a bit…only this banter totally worked because they were people from Harvard and people from those parts are real smart. I give this movie 4 ritas with a poking stick out of 5. Laura what did you think?

Oh hey Robin! it’s great to be back at it, thanks for the kind words.  Let me just be real with yall for a second. If this movie requested my friendship on facebook I would accept it immediatly! If this movie were a facebook event I would click “attending” with a smily face, no jokes. No but seriously, if this movie was all “hey laura, hows it hangin” on my wall, I’d reply “oh not much, just chillin, bad boyz 4 life” because we’re tight like that. okay really now, if this movie was playing farmville I wouldnt make fun of it and call it a loser because it might kick my ass. In short, this movie really surpassed my expectations. I went into it a little sceptical. I mean really, I spend all day on facebook, do I really need to see a movie about it? apparently yes! I was pleasently suprised to find out that mark zukerberg is a nerd with balls! and thats what makes the story so appealing. revenge of the programming nerds! he may have lost his best friend and girlfriend in the process but who cares, he’s rich bitch! and pretty sure he’s dating some asian gold digger now anyways. now thats what I call a “happy ending” 😉

I give this movie 4 Facebook swag ritas out of 5!


Okay. First I would like to start by saying  that it was not my decision to see this movie. Being the best daughter in the world is a tough job, and my position was tested last night when I agreed to see Charlie St. Cloud with my lovely mother. Secondly, Robin I don’t expect you to see this movie and review it, I dont wish that upon anyone. This review is merely a warning to anyone who may be tempted by the appeal of shirtless Zack Effron. STAY BACK! its a TRICK!

Within the first ten minutes of the movie, Effron loses his younger brother  in a terrible car accident, attends his funeral and begins to see his ghost. The moment he said to his ghost brother “I will come here, every day at sunset and play catch with you…I promise” is when I popped a handful of advil rapid releases in hopes of slipping into a mild comatose state wherein I could endure the remaining hour and fifty minutes of the movie.

Here’s what I managed to get out of it as I drifted in and out of consciousness: Effrons brother dies, he plays catch with him. he loses his zeal for life. he meets girl. girls gets into sailing accident, lost at sea. zack has a vision that she is still alive. zack steals boat to find her. zack takes his shirt off (pause for visual) to keep her warm. zack saves her life. zacks brother becomes a tiny orb, which I can only assume represents his ascent into heaven. the end.

This movie gets ZERO ritas out of five. But on a different scale, I give this movie 5 shirtless zack effrons. because frankly, the movie needed more of it.


I know we haven’t done a Rita Rating in a while and I have a good reason for that. After seeing this movie, I couldn’t figure out if my life was real or if I was a crazy person on an island. So for the last few weeks I have been asking people…”Am I a crazy person living on an island?” Instead of getting a straight answer from anyone…I just had people looking at me like I had 16 heads (not very reassuring).

Anyways, the point is this movie is pretty great. So great in fact that it made me question my own sanity. Leonardo Dicaprio does a stellar job portraying Teddy Daniels who is investigating the disappearance of a patient from Boston‘s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. There’s about 42 twists and turns in this movie and I’m not going to reveal any of them. You need to watch this movie. Get up. Get your pants on and drive to the movie store. Pick up Shutter Island and some Junior Mints. Drive over here, drop off the junior mints and then go home and watch the movie.

I give Shutter Island 4 Rita’s in a high fashion leather straight jacket and 1 Ann Murray album cover (this counts as a half..because Anne doesn’t have the same street cred as Rita) Total 4.5 out of 5.

Laura what did you think?

Well Robin, you completely missed the mark with this one. As usual. The movie isn’t just “pretty great”. Its amazing. So amazing that I’m not even upset that Leo dies at the end. *spoiler alert*. just like in Inception *spoiler alert*.  Nevertheless, this movie blew my mind. And for all of you who saw it and said that you knew the ending the whole time because you are super smart – you’re full of poo or you just didn’t get it. If you haven’t seen it yet, do what Robin says and get your pants or your fundies on, and rent this movie immediately. don’t you wanna know how leo dies?

I give this movie FIVE “leonardo dicaprio making out with rita” ritas out of FIVE


Well if you don’t know this about Laura and I….I’m totally Charlotte and Samantha and she’s totally Carrie and Miranda. Like hybrid versions of the characters. So let me just say this, I was looking forward to seeing Sex & the City 2. I was utterly and drastically and technically and literally disappointing. The movie had absolutely no plot or point at all. Half of the movie felt like a tourism commercial for Abu Dhabi. The other half was just fashion filler..and I mean not good fashion…way too much jumpsuit action in this flick.

I give this movie 1 ridiculously fashionable rita hat out of 50..yes 50. What about you Laura? Or should I say Carrie and Miranda…no wait those characters are now dead to me.

Thanks Robin, your review was highly insightful, and for once, I COMPLETELY agree with you. what the EFF was that all about?!! I think I would have had more fun going to the gynecologist. this was just bad. which I hate to say, because I am a die hard fan, and I will defend SATC to the grave. But ladies, you were awful. I actually think the movie made me a little stupider. is stupider even a word?!! Well I could have answered that question before I saw the film. I would like to give this film ZERO ritas, but for the sake of showing rita in ridiculous outfits, I give it ONE Abu Dhabi Rita out of FIVE.


I saw this movie the other day and thought it was HILARIOUS!!!
I gave it 4.5 Rita Macneils out of 5. what did you think Robin??

Well Laura, I did see this movie and I wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as you were. I had purchased some Depends© before with hopes of laughter so great that a slight leak might occur. To my disappointment I did not in fact wet myself.
