AM likes to watch corny family flicks like Spy Kids and Lizzie McGuire. She’s well in touch with her kid side. I occasionally enjoy those kind of movies, depending on my mood. Sometimes, I like to kick back with action movies like War, which I’d just seen on Saturday night. By the way, it was a pretty good movie – the action was a touch more violent than other Jet Li movies, but the storyline more than made up for it with a shocker ending. Movie score by Brian Tyler also helped. Anyway, I digress.
Eugene was watching hockey at the restaurant last night, but AM would have none of that crap (I’m Canadian and NOT a hockey fan – figure that out). So, she changed channels to the W Channel, and a made-for-TV family movie was playing called The Good Witch – a Canadian movie starring Chris Potter (he played Peter Caine from Kung Fu: The Legend Continues) and the yummy Catherine Bell (Army Wives) that has been reviewed as Chocolat for the family with an air of mystery. It was a somewhat interesting movie that became even more interesting after the first commercial break. The W Channel displayed the following message on the TV:
The following program contains nudity, sexual content, coarse language, and is intended for mature audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
There was that scene by the fireplace where the two lead characters were getting cozy when I thought that there might be some nudity, sexual content, and coarse language, but I was mistaken. Scene crossfade. Darn it.
When the movie was over and I was left with nothing but a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart, I assumed that whoever put that rating message on there probably did so by accident and most likely got fired, or did it on purpose and was quitting.
The movie was actually pretty good, and you’re left with a sense of mystery even at the ending. Apparently, according to Catherine’s official website, a sequel to The Good Witch is in the works.
I finish this blog entry with the following piece of advice – according to the W Channel, family movies now contain nudity, sexual content, and coarse language. Viewer discretion is advised. Maybe.
