Movie Marathon

 

It’s Good Friday and there’s no local shows on TV. So I decided to watch two movies. Ace Ventura Jr. Pet Detective and Penelope.

“I will try to be normal” 12-year-old Ace Ventura Jr. promises. Thats cool, except whats normal for him is finding missing mutts, kidnapped kitties or gone gators and creating hilarious chaos every step of the way. Like father, like son, its in his nature to be a pet defective detective! And when a zoos baby panda is stolen and Aces mom is Suspect #1, our young hero sets out to clear the family name. Its a new generation of family fun and goof-brained comedy panda-monium as Ace Ventura Jr. (Josh Flitter of Nancy Drew and License to Wed) teams with adventurous girl-next-door Laura (Emma Lockhart) and nerdish gizmo-wiz A-Plus (Austin Rogers) to chase down leads and laughs. Ready for fun? Allriiiighty-then. Ace – Ace Jr. is on the case! For a movie that’s nominally about being yourself, ACE JR. is a lot more appealing before Flitter starts channeling his inner Jim Carrey. Still nothing beats the original. The kid is not that funny but a little irritating especially the scene where he needs a horse tack.

Anyway, after the Ace Ventura Jr. Pet Detective, I watched Penelope. I really loved the story. This is the story of a named Penelope, who is the victim of a curse placed on a wealthy family by a witch. After generations ago, a witch placed a curse on the Wilhern family that would result in the next girl being born into the clan having the face of a pig. The otherwise-normal girl Penelope is forced to endure life with a pig’s snout instead of a conventional nose, which has sent many a potential suitor running off into the streets, shouting in terror. Eventually, she runs away from her sheltered existence and overprotective parents, to explore the world on her own. As she meets new friends and a potential lover who doesn’t run away, she begins to discover happiness – while all the while her parents believe the only way she can be happy is through an arranged marriage, which will hopefully break her curse.

Tomorrow, I’ll be watching Little Rascals and Casper =)
