Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from yellow single-celled organisms into beings which exist only to serve history’s most despicable masters.[14] After rolling their leader T-Rex down a volcano, getting their caveman leader eaten by a bear, crushing a Pharaoh under the pyramids while his people survive, burning Dracula on his birthday party, and accidentally firing a cannon at Napoleon, the Minions are driven into isolation andstart a new life in a massive cave in the Arctic. After many years, the Minions become depressed, restless, and unmotivated without a master to serve. To regain their dignity and sense of purpose, Kevin, one fearless Minion, decides to set out to find a new master and asks for help. Stuart, a musically inclined Minion, and Bob, a young and inexperienced but enthusiastic Minion, are recruited.The trio journeys to New York, where the year is 1968. After spending the day attempting to blend in, the Minions end up in a department store for the night, where they discover a hidden commercial broadcast for villains advertising Villain-Con; a convention for villains and supervillains in Orlando. The trio hitchhikes a ride with the Nelson family and impress them with their accidental villainy. At the convention, they see Scarlet Overkill, the first female supervillain, who hires them and takes them to her home in the United Kingdom.Scarlet explains the plan to steal the Imperial State Crown from the Queen of the United Kingdom and promises to reward the Minions if they steal it but kill them if they do not. Her husband Herb supplies them with inventions to aid in the heist, but they are nearly caught when they break into the Tower of London, which leads to a chase that ends with Bob crashing into the Sword in the Stone and pulling it free, removing the Queen from the throne and becoming King Bob. Enraged, Scarlet confronts the Minions, so Bob abdicates the throne in her favor. Undeterred because she feels betrayed, Scarlet imprisons the three in a dungeon to be tortured by Herb before her coronation, but they escape with the intention to apologize to Scarlet.Making their way to Westminster Abbey, the three of them interrupt the coronation by accidentally dropping a chandelier on Scarlet, who orders their execution. Dozens of villains chase them and Bob and Stuart are caught, while Kevin finds his way into a pub. He sees Scarlet on a television, promising that she will kill Stuart and Bob if Kevin does not show up by dawn. Kevin sneaks into Scarlet’s home to steal weapons but inadvertently triggers a machine Herb was building and enlarges himself. He tramples through London, rescuing his friends just as the other Minions reunite with them. Scarlet tries to eradicate them, but Kevin swallows a massive missile she fires at them. Scarlet and Herb attempt to escape with her rocket-dress, but Kevin holds onto it. The missile detonates, causing it to explode. After the Minions briefly mourn him, Kevin returns, having returned to his normal size.The original Queen from the earlier part of the story receives her place on the throne and crown back and rewards Bob with a tiny crown for his teddy bear and Stuart an electric guitar, and she knights Kevin for his heroism. She suddenly realizes that her crown is missing, and Kevin leads a chase after Scarlet and Herb, who survived the explosion and are fleeing through the crowd with the bejeweled crown until they are suddenly frozen in place by a young Gru, who steals the crown from them and takes off in a rocket-powered motorbike while the Minions stare in awe. Bob gives his crown to the frozen Scarlet, and the Minions see Gru as their new potential master and give chase to follow him home.Very enjoyable and amusing film for both kids and adults.

It’s Christmas morning at the Ottos. The kids are itching to open presents, but Katie insists they follow their yearly Christmas tradition first – build a fire, eat a big breakfast, talk about the true meaning of Christmas, Greg’s seasonal hypochondria flairs up, etc. Then, the landline rings. (What’s making that noise?” “Sounds familiar…It’s the landline!”) In Katie and Greg’s words, no one calls the landline unless somebody’s dead…or it’s that computer that tries to trick you into thinking it’s a real person.”  It’s Doris. She’s been texting Katie, who hasn’t seen any of the texts, so she’s finally tried the landline. She’s in labor and all alone, having sent the rest of her family to Aspen for Christmas. And she’s “not giving birth alone like some teenage crack whore!” so Katie has to hurry on over to the hospital.148032_6850_595_MiniLogoTVwhite-GalleryWhen Katie leaves, she demands Greg make the kids wait to open presents, so they can continue the family tradition of opening them together. This is easier said than done. So Greg resorts to locking himself in the office with the presents. (“Open the damn door, Greg!”) The kids even try to fake an injury on Anna-Kat to get him to unlock the door. Fortunately, he’s smart enough to demand that they “slide something under the door with her blood on it” first.  At the hospital, Doris is enjoying the deluxe “1% suite,” when Greg and the kids arrive. Greg’s decided that instead of waiting at home for Katie, they’ll all be together at the hospital, and the kids can, therefore, open their presents. Since Doris is in the super-rich-person suite, there’s plenty of stuff to fulfill the Christmas tradition – a fireplace, a fancy breakfast, even a nice Christmas tree.maxresdefaultBefore they can start opening the presents, Doris’s monitor begins beeping and they have to leave. (She’s fine. Katie just unplugged the monitor to charge her phone!). In the waiting area, Taylor, who’s mourning her breakup with Ayo, encourages Oliver to practice asking out the girl from ballet to the Nutcracker on the gift shop cashier. He fails miserably, several times, each time ending the conversation by grabbing a random nameplate key-chain and asking “If you don’t have anything to do, would you like to…sell me this license plate key-chain?” On the third try, he finally succeeds in mentioning the nutcracker tickets. Only, this woman doesn’t realize he’s practicing and starts crying that her newly deceased mother used to take her and her sister to the Nutcracker every year and how Oliver’s a Christmas angel. (Maybe she “won’t turn back to drugs after all!”) In an  uncharacteristically selfless moment for Oliver, he gives her the tickets. While there, Greg runs into one of his re-enactor friends who’s a doctor and gets him to take a look at his hands, which he’s determined are turning blue and tingling. american-housewife-1968-s2e10-blue-christmasUnfortunately, Dr. Not-Irwin seems to think that something is actually wrong with his hands. Blue and tingling could be gangrene. (At this, Anna-Kat gets quite excited at the prospect of amputation.  With it looking like Greg might actually be sick, Kate’s left running between him and Doris. Katie leaves Angela on webcam to support Greg while she tries to reassure Doris that even though she’s been kind of a horrible parent with her first three kids, this baby can be different. (“A do-over baby!”)  While Katie’s with Doris, Angela starts looking up Greg’s symptoms on the internet, which Katie has banned Greg from trying. Angela finds where rubbing your hands on new jeans (which Greg has been doing) can cause the dye to come off and turn your hands blue. She tells Greg to try rubbing alcohol. Unsurprisingly, this takes the blue right off!  As Greg celebrates the fact that he’s not about to lose his hands, Katie comes in, apologizing and vowing to be there for him when he needs her. Of course, he waits until the end of this apology to tell her he’s fine.  The episode ends with Katie rushing off to be with Doris, who finally has her “do-over baby.” Afterwards, she finds Greg and the kids ready to open presents in the waiting room, even though she’d caved and told them to go home and open presents without her. And Oliver asks out the girl from ballet. She says “okay.”hA great Christmas episode that’s just as awesome as the first a great watch for the holiday season.

KRAMPUS KATIE

Despite what Greg insists, there aren’t many anti-Santa villains in Christmas stories. There’s the Grinch, there’s Krampus, and now there’s Katie Otto, accused of elf murder and general Christmas grumpiness. It isn’t that Katie gets grumpier at Christmas, but simply that everyone else gets more cheerful. As she observes the parents volunteering at the Westport School Christmas concert, it’s like someone watching the animals at the zoo. Katie can’t understand how one day suddenly changes everyone’s personalities.

am-9-6
Even Viv is more manic and cheerful than usual, which didn’t seem possible before we see the crazy in Leslie Bibb’s eyes. In “Krampus Katie”, Katie struggles with her position as Krampus to Viv’s over-medicated Santa. As Katie and Greg discuss a special speaking job Greg’s counting on, Viv bursts in and Anna-Kat is captivated. With her happy nature and love of splashy volunteer work, Viv seems just like real-life Santa. Katie, on the other hand, is apparently more like Krampus, the demon goat who terrorizes bad children during the holidays. Viv gives Greg and the kids pointy muffins and Katie “the gift of potential”, which is actually just a fitbit. Katie is offended enough to refuse to help Viv plan the annual Christmas concert. Although, she wasn’t going to do it anyway.

Normally, Katie would successfully ward off Viv, Viv would go away, and that would be that. Now, however, the Elf on the Mantle is in play. The Elf on the Mantle, which is half the price of the one you’re thinking of, is Santa’s little spy in the house. Anna-Kat is deathly worried that the elf will see Katie be grumpy and deny the entire family presents. Katie doesn’t listen to Anna-Kat’s warnings until she accidentally sets fire to the elf. Then, it just stares at her with its creepy little elf eyes until she goes down to the school and pretends to be merry. To impress the elf and survive the holidays, Katie turns to Greg for help. Unlike Katie, Greg can find the silver-lining in any situation. Even when Oliver and Taylor demand better presents, Greg decides that this is an opportunity to teach them a Christmas lesson. Greg’s heart is in the right place, but his optimistic way of looking at the world makes him a bad teacher for his much more cynical children. When he takes them to a nursing home, Oliver and Taylor get the basic idea, but their hearts aren’t exactly melted by the residents.
am-9-8
As Oliver and Taylor cope with their punishment of talking to delightful old ladies, Greg makes a friend of his own. His new actor acquaintance tells Greg the lesson he learned after being a pushy extra on Mad Men: you have to fight for what you want. It’s kind of a Christmas lesson, but Greg is too passive to take it to heart. The kids haven’t learned their lesson either. Oliver and Taylor completely luck out when they meet a befuddled old lady who thinks they’re her grandchildren and gives them Christmas money. They almost get away with it, until Greg catches on. Greg thinks he has another chance when Katie, eager to prove to that dumb little elf that she has Christmas spirit, agrees to help Viv deliver presents to a family in need. This leads to the most “Westport” scene of the episode, where the Otto family realizes that Viv’s definition of a family in need is much different than theirs. This family had their accounts frozen and can only afford to go to *gasp* Hawaii for Christmas. Greg and Katie are outraged, but polite enough to just give the family the presents and walk away. Some battles aren’t worth fighting.
am-9-5
Throughout the episode, Greg has slowly been losing it. He can’t get through to Oliver and Taylor, he was forced to give a rich family charity presents, and he loses the speaking position to Kidney-Disease Carl. At the Christmas pageant, he finally can’t take it anymore and chews out Anna-Kat’s music teacher for being too hard on the kids. Katie in particular is ecstatic that Greg is finally giving into the anger, but is once again reminded of the elf, Anna-Kat’s hopes, and the true spirit of Christmas. When Viv has a Santa-sized meltdown over planning the concert, Katie invites her over. As Anna-Kat tells her later, the elf is proud, and Katie can stand tall knowing that at least one Otto kid values charity and kindness. As for Oliver and Taylor – the jury’s still out. This is the last American Housewife of the year. I’ve enjoyed watching the show and look forward to it’s return in January.

TIS THE SEASON TO BE MOLLY

Mike (as Santa Claus) and Carl (as an elf) hand out toys to needy children, then get locked in the back of a truck while loading it. At home, Molly has the whole family on edge as she insists on every holiday preparation being done to her exact specifications. While it is revealed that she does this to honor her late father, Vince is left distraught when Molly lashes out at him and he feels that the Flynn family has never really accepted him.

A great episode showing just how Molly goes all out for the holiday period, it’s nice that Molly eventually excepts Vince as part of the family and allows him to put a decoration on the tree.

BOO WHO?

GUEST CAST

Jessica St. Clair (Life As We Know It)

147631_1618_595_MiniLogoTVwhite-GalleryEvery year, Westport families leave anonymous bags of goodies and candy on other people’s porches a few days before Halloween – a practice known as “getting booed.” It’s not a huge shock to find out the Ottos, as the town’s resident outcasts, are always left out of this practice. But this year, everything’s changed. The Ottos have been booed! As Oliver laments “My poster was right! Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it,” a “not excited” but secretly totally thrilled Katie starts to wonder who finally moved to include them. Of course, being booed doesn’t solve all their Halloween related problems. Oliver screams like a little girl and has decided there’s no way he’s going to his friend’s big haunted house party, so Anna-Kat takes it upon herself to practice some immersion therapy on him. Basically, she’s going to all but scare the screams out of him. And Taylor? She’s thrilled to have been invited to participate in a group costume. And, this year’s group theme is “Norwalk Pregnant Prom Girls!” Katie’s just too thrilled.147631_2424_595_MiniLogoTVwhite-GalleryAt lunch, Angela and Doris figure out that the Otto’s Boo came from Katie’s arch-nemesis Chloe Brown-Mueller. The items in the basket are from Chloe’s store, “one of those vanity shops Westport housewives open so they can say they have a career.” Katie takes this as a peace treaty and a sign that she’s finally moving up the Westport social ladder, so she rushes off to thank Chloe. Of course Chloe, ever the soulless twat, didn’t actually mean for the Boo to go to Katie. The address got mixed up and her employee/unofficial servant Maria delivered it to the wrong house.  So, a defeated Katie goes home realizing she hasn’t actually climbed the social ladder like she secretly wanted to. At home, Katie’s met by Taylor, who’s decided that if she can’t be a pregnant Norwalk prom girl, she’ll be going as a slutty ladybug. Katie, predictably, vetoes this as well. Then, as a Frankenstein-clad Greg returns from the Zombie Run, Katie tells him about the Boo mix-up. Greg, world’s most lovable pushover, decides to finally face confrontation and heads down to Chloe’s shop to defend the family honour.147631_1344_595_MiniLogoTVwhite-GalleryIf any of you were expecting a breakthrough with Greg’s fear of confrontation, get ready to be disappointed. While trying to confront Chloe, Greg gets his zombie makeup in his eye, trips, and subsequently breaks just about everything in the store. Back at home, Taylor finally convinces Katie to let her go as a pregnant prom girl, comparing her desire to go as part of the group costume and fit in to Katie’s desire to finally get a Boo like everyone else. Greg returns then, having failed to confront his fear of confrontation. Katie, however, informs him that even though he didn’t actually accomplish his mission of standing up to Chloe, knowing that her shop is now completely destroyed makes his visit totally worth it. As Halloween night finally arrives, everyone sets out to celebrate conflict free. Katie’s slapped a Bane mask on Oliver, so whenever he screams he “sounds like a dude!” Taylor heads off to party with the rest of the pregnant teenagers. Greg goes to Chloe’s store to begin working off his debt (after making Katie a Boo of her own), and Katie takes a zombie-princess Anna-Kat trick-or-treating.MEG DONNELLY, DANIEL DIMAGGIOWhat I really like about this new sitcom is there is no “canned laughter” barreling at the audience during and after every conversation the family may have. The laughter will have to be earned and they earned it. This is another great Halloween episode that will hopefully become a yearly tradition.

The story line about a slightly overweight mother and her husband raising three children in the suburbs of Westport Conneticut will resonate with a lot of household families. Actress Katy Mixon who just came off six seasons of the successful sitcom Mike and Molly plays mom Katie Otto, who feels a bit uncomfortable in what she feels is her over sized body compared to all the neighborhood school moms who remind her of the perfect Stepford wives. Now Katie’s husband Greg, played by Diedrich Bader is just your normal dad who enjoys his morning read on the bathroom throne with a cup of java. Greg doesn’t think Katie is as fat as Katie thinks she is.

Fat Pam is Katie’s neighbor from across the street and she is moving which will leave Katie as the second fattest mom in her neighborhood. Katie convinces her husband Greg that he has to help her find a heavy woman to buy the house across the street so she won’t be looked upon as the fattest mom in the neighborhood and she can feel better about herself. But common sense prevails and Katie ends up eventually having to welcome another Stepford looking wife to the neighborhood named Viv, played by Leslie Bibb. The initial interaction between Viv and Katie one could imagine it would not be exactly a warm welcome and thus we have the making of a new sitcom.Katie and Greg are the proud parents of two daughters and one son. Their son Oliver’s ambition is to be the next Warren Buffet but I don’t think that Katie and Greg have the heart to tell their son that they actually are just renting the house they live in. Their younger daughter a cutey patootie named Anna-Kat is scared of germs and shows sign of having an obsessive compulsive disorder. Their older daughter Taylor fits right in the neighborhood with all the slim good looking girls and Katie resents that Taylor may grow up as just another plastic Stepford type wife, shallow but beautifully slim.


What I really like about this new sitcom is there is no “canned laughter” barreling at the audience during and after every conversation the family may have. The laughter will have to be earned and they earned my laughter during every episode. With a season 2 renewal thinks are looking bright for this great new sitcom.

Mary Horowitz, a crossword puzzle writer for the Sacramento Herald, is socially awkward and considers her pet hamster her only true friend. Her parents decide to set her up on a blind date. Mary’s expectations are low, as she tells her hamster. Mary is pleasantly surprised when her date turns out to be handsome and charming Steve Miller, a cameraman for the television news network CCN. Steve does not reciprocate her feelings. After an attempt at an intimate moment fails, in part because of her awkwardness and inability to stop talking about vocabulary, Steve fakes a phone call about covering the news out of town. Trying to get Mary out of his truck, he tells her he wishes she could be there.
Mary believes him and decides to pursue him. Mary’s obsession gets her fired when she creates a crossword titled “All About Steve”. Following her termination, Mary decides to track Steve around the country in the hopes of winning his affection. She is encouraged by CCN news reporter Hartman Hughes, who hopes to use Mary’s encyclopedic knowledge in his reports to help himself get a promotion to become an anchor. On the road, Mary annoys some bus passengers so much, the driver abandons her. She hitchhikes with a trucker named Norm, then meets and travels with a pair of protesters, Elizabeth, a ditzy but sweet and likeable girl, and Howard, who sells apples he carves into celebrities. She gradually grows close to the two.

Steve and crew end up covering a breaking news story: an old mine collapsed with numerous deaf children stuck inside. Initially, it appears that the children are rescued. Mary, who arrives on the scene, accidentally falls into the mine shaft as well while making a beeline for Steve. It turns out that not all the children have been rescued, and Mary is trapped with one left behind. Steve begins to realize that Mary, in her own unique way, is a beautiful person. Just as Mary figures a way out, the two are joined by Hartman, who is made to feel guilty by Elizabeth and Howard for getting Mary into this predicament. Mary’s rescue plan works, but she lets Hartman take the credit. Mary finally realizes she does not need Steve to be happy. She states, “If you love someone, set him free; if you have to stalk him, he probably wasn’t yours in the first place.” After the end credits, a competitive TV reporter, in despair that Hartman got popularity by falling into the mine while trying to save Mary, also jumps into the mine.I was a little dubious at first at watching this film as I hadn’t heard good things…..But what can I say it was a laugh from start to finish. Sandra Bullock is as always fantastic. A fun film not to be taken seriously.
