This post is for the Film Experience’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot series. In this series you choose a frame of a movie that means something to you. I talked about the movie not long ago in a Netflix post so I’m not really going to say to much about it here.

Even though I’d watched it earlier this year I had no idea what I would choose as my favorite shot. It’s not that the film isn’t beautiful, it’s just that I remember it more for it’s music.

Pocahontas hands

In the end I went with this shot. It’s very simple. However it seems quite meaningful. It’s when Pocahontas and John are meeting for the first time. He is putting his hand out to help her up and it shows an initial trust on her part to actually take it.

Of course I couldn’t resist taking a few more screencaps for fun.

Beautiful shot by very talented animators. I can see why multiple bloggers chose this shot.

I have pugs so during my recent viewings of the film I couldn’t help but get a kick out of Percy the pug. So here are some fun Percy caps.

Patty Duke in Valley of the Dolls

Patty Duke in Valley of the Dolls

If possible, on almost any given holiday, I would like to be tranquilized, Valley of the Dolls/Marilyn Monroe style. Shoot something into me that knocks me out until the day is over. If it’s a holiday in which the festivities last for DAYS, I’d prefer whatever shot does that. Or whatever they took in Romeo & Juliet, I guess.

I will be moving to Orlando, Florida this fall to take part in the Disney College Program. This is an introduction video to give you a bit of an explanation of what this “paid internship” entails. So watch below to hear about how I will be “Living, Learning & Earning” soon. This is also just a good way to see me smiling and happy because I’m not always like that. This is very exciting!

This poster is completely accurate. He distracted me into watching this.

This poster is completely accurate. He distracted me into watching this.

Upon seeing I Give It A Year listed on Netflix I almost bypassed it. Unfortunately, I did not. I spotted the deliciousness of Simon Baker and my hormones added it to my queue.

I then proceeded to watch it despite my intense hatred of Rose Byrne. She’s a bad actress. I’m sorry, she just is. It’s true that I never noticed her until Adam and some think that I’m basing my dislike on that character but no, that’s not it. I’ve seen her in so many good or great films and she is always a blight on the picture. Okay, she was funny in Bridesmaids but I attribute that to the writing.

i give it a year movie poster

So what we have here is a romantic comedy about a couple who meet and marry quickly despite reservations from their friends. Byrne stars as Nat opposite Josh (Rafe Spall) who is so awkward that he’d make me seem debonair in comparison.

Anna Faris plays Chloe, Josh’s best friend, which was what kept me watching until the end of the film, to be honest. I’m a huge fan of Faris. Here I got to see her in a more insecure, less silly role. She was fantastic, as usual. If you are also a big fan of hers you probably have to watch this even if it’s just to see her funny threeway scene. Guy (Simon Baker) meets Nat at work and falls for her. I wanted to see more of him in the film but I understand that it’s not his movie. Minnie Driver has a supporting role. At first I thought her character was funny but I quickly changed my mind. I mainly just got excited about seeing her as an actress.

The couple see a marriage counselor and decide to give their marriage a year before calling it quits. During this time both find each other more and more annoying and become more drawn to the objects of their attraction. At one point the main couple set up the two people that they are attracted to and basically order them to date. The whole thing just seems like a huge waste of four people’s year.

I did get a few laughs out of this but, no, save yourself. I’m sure you have better things to do or watch for an hour and a half.

Don’t give your time over to “I Give It a Year”.

You can watch I Give It a Year on Netflix Streaming or rent it on Amazon (This is an affiliate link so if you make a purchase through this, it may earn a small commission for this site.).
