I humbly propose the following guaranteed hits:
 
1. Cocktail II: On the Rocks – Tom Cruise returns as the charming bartender Brian Flannigan. The stakes have never been higher as Brian, ten years sober, is forced back into the scene due to a bartending emergency. To make matters worse, the new reckless bartender trainee he must contend with is none other than…the son he never knew he had!?  “Heh, reminds me of somebody I used to know”, somebody will say to Brian in the third act, triggering within him a profound realization that the kid shares characteristics with his own younger self.  Also, there will be a violent rock climbing race.  
 
2. Ferris Bueller’s Day in Court-  Everybody loves “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, the harrowing tale of good-natured teenager Cameron Frye being manipulated into destructive behavior by the nefarious and egocentric Ferris Bueller.  The cruel antics of Ferris culminated with a mentally tormented Cameron kicking his father’s prized automobile out the window.  In the sequel, we learn that Cameron faced dire consequences for this act of uncharacteristic vandalism and spent many years in a medically induced coma. Now finally wakening, Cameron sets out on a quest for justice.

The webpage discussed SoGlo, a company that sold “cutting-edge coffee products” infused with detoxifying “miracle berries” to make drinkers healthier and more energized than ever before. I was skeptical, but Marc appeared strikingly handsome in his avatar as he gazed into space while clutching a coffee mug. I signed up for the program and began DMing with Marc everyday.  Despite his incessant discussion of the company’s mission—to provide everyday people an opportunity to earn additional income while contributing to global awareness of miracle berries’ superfood qualities—I felt a closeness with him that I’d never felt before.  (more…)

In the heart of Disney’s Magic Kingdom, a place of realized dreams and fantastic wonder, you seem to have found yourself on The Jungle Cruise.

Maybe following your children around and trudging under the sun for a few hours made you yearn for a place under the shade where you could sit down and relax for a bit to think about all the money you’ve spent. Or maybe you were truly enjoying yourself and unknowingly made the decision to ruin your day.

Regardless, you better prepare yourself for the least fun seven minutes in the world outside of having sex with Paul Ryan. (more…)
