For nearly twenty years, Shiloh always gets stuck doing all the cooking, cleaning, and decorating for Thanksgiving while her husband Mac sits around watching football and drinking beer. Then she makes a wish on the turkey wishbone for a more sensitive spouse. The next thing she knows, she's sharing a New York apartment with a sweet young vegan named Mac. Now Shiloh is the one wearing the pants, but will her new power go to her head?
Lydia has gotten tired of her husband's poor manners, especially at Thanksgiving. This year things are going to be different. Using a magic potion, she changes her husband into a woman. Every time he swears, farts, burps, or does something else naughty, he gets cuter and younger. If he can make it to midnight, he might just become a man again.

Enough with the shameless plugs, time for movie reviews!
Independence Day: Resurgence: It's not as embarrassing as Godfather III, but like Dumb & Dumber To it's like, "It's OK, but did we really need this after 20 years?" No, not really. The plot is easy to summarize: the aliens are back 20 years later to kill us all by snuffing out our core. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, and
By the Sea: This movie is a cure for insomnia. In the 60s--or something--Brad Pitt and Anjelina Jolie Pitt (ha ha ha) go to an island in the south of France for...reasons. Brad Pitt spends most of his time getting drunk in the bar and Anjelina Jolie Pitt seems to be trying to channel Liz Taylor and spends most of her time staring through a peep hole at the young couple in the next room. I twice tried to watch this and fell asleep both times. It's just so pretentious and dull. No wonder it destroyed their marriage. (1/5)
American Loser: Seann William Scott is a former alcoholic trying to reform his life. He has learning disabilities and phobias that also make things difficult. In the end he becomes a comedian though it's kind of depressing that his book hadn't been published yet and the girl he hooked up with was not still with him; those items were relayed in text at the end of the movie. It was OK but not essential viewing either. (2.5/5)
Torque: This is pretty much what you'd expect from the trailers: lots of motorcycles driving and jumping and stuff with very little in the way of plot. This came out about 10 years or five Fast & Furious movies ago. The idea is that it's supposed to be like Fast & Furious with motorcycles. The good guys have Ninja-type motorcycles and the bad guys Harleys. It's all extremely dumb with lame special effects and mostly no-name actors. (2/5)
2001: A Space Travesty: The title pretty much sums it up: it's the year 2001, it's in space, and it's a travesty. I guess the idea was Naked Gun in space since it stars Leslie Nielsen but it's extremely lame. The gags are terrible and the effects are worse. It makes The Adventures of Pluto Nash look like the real 2001. (1/5)
