The Age of Adaline Harrison Ford is life

This romantic drama centers on the life story of a young woman who stops aging at 29. I am a bit torn on it. Watch my video review for my full thoughts. Check it out if you are a huge fan of Blake Lively or Harrison Ford.

5 out of 5

Warning: This is a bit spoilery.

Luckily Facebook spies on all of us. That sounds like I’m leading up to a joke or a big brother rant, but no, really, in this case, it’s a good thing. FB must have noticed that I’ve liked Sex and the City pages in the past and alerted me to the fact that this new show is coming out. Well, when I saw the lead actress from Bunheads is the star, I jumped all over that.

You may not be aware of Bunheads, but I went through a heavy duty ballet phase last year. It was a series about a dancer from Vegas who ended up teaching ballet in a small town. The lead (Sutton Foster) is fantastic.

The fairly silly premise of Younger is about a woman in her 40s passing herself off as woman in her 20s to get a new job. It was then that I noticed that Hilary Duff costars. Plus, it’s from Darren Starr (Sex and the City). I initially thought it’d be a CW show actually, because of his now defunct the Carrie Diaries.

Liza (Sutton Foster) is a 40 year old mom whose daughter has finally grown up and gone off on her own. She’s also newly divorced. This means that she is ready to jump back into her career in publishing.

The problem? It’s been like 15 years. Those of you who have tried to get a job after any sort of gap in your resume knows this can be a problem. It doesn’t help that her interviewers are often millenials who discriminate against her, right in front of her, incredibly non-tactfully.

younger intro

I must also mention that she’s selling her home and has the WORST realtor ever! Seriously. “Either someone buys this place by next week or it goes to the bank.” WTF?

younger dude

To take her mind off of her woes, her bf (Debi Mazar, luv!) goes out for drinks with her. The totally hot young dude above (Nico Tortella) mistakes her for 26 years old. She plays along.

“Do I really wanna trade my dignity, wisdom and self respect for another chance at my 20s?”
“Yes, you do”

This leads to a wonderful MAKEOVER MONTAGE!!!. Yes, the actual idea of posing as a 26 year old so she can get her foot in the door somewhere. As Mazar says, “You were getting carded until you were 30”. Duff costars as her friend and co-worker (a bit higher up in the company and already offering her help up the line). Due to her age and well, of course, the show is set in NYC, she’s a bit blunt, “I didn’t mean to shit in your Cheerios”.

I am IN LOVE with this show so far. Yes, I know it’s just the pilot. Please, let it continue in this vein. Sutton’s boss (Miriam Shor) is a biatch, but she doesn’t deserve the age jokes from Duff, so yeah, that can be addressed. Plus Sutton is already trying to help Duff be more aggressive in her personal. Oh yeah, and there’s the whole lying to the new hottie thing. So much that can be done with this!

I basically feel like this show was created for me. I think that the best shows feel like that, highly personal. However, I am behind in life, so to say. Plus I tend to hang out with or go do activities that younger people do. So, now in my early thirties, I have been mistaken for being in my early 20s. I’ve never felt so on point with a show regarding age before. That goes for everything, pop culture, slang, mating habits, and jobs, of course.

Please let this one go far and be amazing!

The series is set to premiere on TV Land on March 31st.

You can currently watch the pilot episode for FREE on Amazon here.

As an obsessive fan of Marilyn Monroe something came to me the other night while watching one of her flicks on Netflix. Duh! She needs to have her own Online Movie Resource on my site.

If you aren’t familiar with this concept, what I do is scour the net for legal video on demand films starring a certain actor. Thus far I had only put together one for the amazing Johnny Depp last summer but a post of this nature is definitely needed for the lovely, talented Marilyn as well.

Enjoy!
