Movie of the Month

This Month at the Movies

Hi, I’m Heather, Barbara’s daughter, and I’ll be giving you a little insight into a family friendly movie or a date night movie each month. I have two daughters, ages 4 and 2, so we get to watch a ton of kid movies but we do watch movies just for us as well.

A woman is transformed into her younger self at a point in her life when the pressures of adulthood become too much to bear. Smart science-loving Jordan Sanders is humiliated and injured by a bully while demonstrating a physics principle in middle school and vows never to be bullied again by becoming successful. Twenty-five (25) years later she is the boss of an Atlanta tech firm where she becomes a tyrant, bullying her neighbors, employees and especially her mousy assistant, April Williams. But when she is mean to a girl performing magic tricks, the girl uses her wand to wish Jordan little.

Review by Heather McCoy

This was a good movie! Eddie (my boyfriend) and I watched it for date night. We felt like it dragged a little and took a while to get to the heart of the story. Other than that, it was a really great movie. I loved the main message of the story … how you need to find yourself.
