Alex and Me - Wow!

*Review

Hey neighbors!

I do not often review what I would label secular movies.  The main reason for this is that I am often disappointed by what they actually think is acceptable for viewing.  So, when I received the opportunity to review Alex and Me, I was slightly hesitant.  Alex and Me released on DVD/Blu-ray June 19th.  It is rated G, and I still wondered if I would have issues.

So, you may just be wondering what I thought about Alex and Me.  I was impressed.  Yes, there is music in it, that I personally would not listen too, and one scene where a coach has a soccer ball thrown at him and he gets hit below the waist, which I think was unnecessary.  Overall though I was amazingly impressed with the movie.

The storyline centers around 13 year old Reagan and her family.  She has a dream of playing soccer and she sort of gets lost in the shuffle of family life for awhile.  In the meantime, she ends up hitting her head and awakening to her soccer hero Alex Morgan, who has suddenly stepped off the poster in her room and offers to train her.  Mind you Reagan is the only one who can see Alex, which leads to several funny scenes where she is seen talking to and interacting with someone no one else can see.  Alex encourages Reagan to strive for her dream and set goals to reach that dream.  Needless to say by the end of the movie several people have a change of heart and Reagan actually gets to meet the real Alex Morgan.


Cast Includes: Alex Morgan as herself, Jerry Trainor (iCarly) also stars as Nigel, a less-than-reliable youth soccer coach, alongside Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Reagan’s brother, Logan; Colin Critchley (Legends of the Hidden Temple) as Reagan’s soccer-playing pal, Ben; Chuiti Tiu (Nashville) as Reagan’s mother, Ann Wills; and Jim Klock (True Detective, Scream Queens) as Reagan’s father (and biggest fan), Joe Wills. Jessica Treska (HBO’s upcoming Sharp Objects) plays Reagan’s arch-rival, Claire.

I am sure the whole family will enjoy watching Alex and Me.  If you are looking for some wholesome family entertainment be sure to grab a copy of Alex and Me, one of your family's favorite snacks and sit down and enjoy yourselves.  Alex & Me will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $24.98), DVD (SRP $19.98) and Digital (SRP $14.99).Take a moment and use the app below to create your own, or your child's own soccer emoji.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
