#Disney The Odd Life of #TimothyGreen #Review

BlogHer was full of fun and one of my favorite parts was the screening of Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green. I read the reviews my blogger friends wrote before and I was warned. Yep, trust me to completely forget about the warnings and walk in totally unsuspecting. Yet, there must've been something lingering in the back of my mind as I chose not to sit with my blogger friends. LOL, why? I cry easily during movies...I think I've mentioned this me blood, guts, and bones, I'll be fine. Take me to a movie and I'll bawl my eyes out. #TimothyGreen shakes up the town of Stanleyville and my heart in a tumultous up and down film.

If you want the short of it...I cried, I laughed, I cried...hit repeat. LOL, I was wiping away tears throughout the movie and I actually had to stare away from the screen at points because I knew if I watched, the full on waterworks would come. I might've drowned the theater if that happened so I had to restrain myself. That apparently has inspired the SO to rewatch it with me so that he can watch me bawl. Anyways, the movie really is magical. There's no better way to put it. It's a miracle blend of life and nature, courage and love, family and bonds...a bittersweet family life that we can all relate to in some way or other. It's a must watch with the family when it comes out this Wednesday, August 15th. The cast does a great job dragging you in emotionally and I'm especially impressed with CJ Adams, the 12-year-old playing Timothy. He does some quality acting!

During this BlogHer fun, we were treated to a fun gathering afterwards where we were given goodies from the movie and Disney's upcoming The Secret of the Wings. LOL, check it out in the pictures below. After those pictures are also some pictures from Monday night's green carpet Hollywood premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green. No, I wasn't there but if my schedule permits, I may be able to meet Jennifer Gardner this week so tell me what you'd like to ask her just in case.
I'll leave you with some fun clips of movie:
“BACKPACK” -This was hilarious...what did you pack on your kid's first day to school?
“DREAM KID” -This was kind of sad yet funny...
“AUNT MEL AND UNCLE BUB” -The funny...LOL, I can't leave you with something sad now, can I?
