Movies
 
Big Fat Liar, starring Frankie Muniz and Amanda Byrnes.
In an age where kids are portrayed in movies as smart mouthed, irritatingly mature, BFL is a hugely refreshing movie. The plot: revenge, but in the funniest way you're going to see on the silver screen. The teenage stars don't swear, don't drink or do drugs, and, this is a shock--they don't make out. They're friends on a quest. The themes of integrity, honesty, and kindness in Hollywood proves that meanness is...well, I won't give it away! This is a must see for adults and kids alike. Rated PG, baby!

Veterinarian Paul Conner lived a simple life until the day Detective George Christensen called with a very puzzling problem. He needed Paul's help--for what? To catch a mynah bird named Treasure and to solve a murder. To complicate matters, into Paul's life walks Dr. Veronica Mason, a researcher from M.I.T. She is beautiful, smart, witty, and she knows a heck of a lot more about mynah birds than Paul does. In fact, she trained Treasure to actually communicate with humans and her DNA altered offspring--if they can just find the stolen eggs--promise to be even more intelligent. A rollicking tale of suspense, love and intrigue, mingled with a delightful humor, VetCop takes the reader from the eastern coast of the U.S. to the untouched beauty of the New Frontier.

On a bitterly cold winter day in Boston, an emaciated woman enters a pawn shop, out of answers and out of time. That same night, she blacks out. When she wakes, she is stunned to learn that seven years have passed. She's now married to one of the wealthiest men in America. She's a mother, a graduate student at Boston University, a born again Christian. However, she remembers nothing and no one. Her husband reveals some of the details of her past, but admits that he does not know why she was running when they met years earlier. After months of hard work, she rebuilds her life. Then tragedy strikes again, bridging the chasm to her traumatic past. Through prayer, a strong faith in God, and good friends, she is able to turn her misfortunes into help for millions.
