Road trips seem like a fun idea on paper because of all the excitement they promise. There is the car crammed like a clown car full of duffle bags and people, mix tapes to sing joyously along to, snacks to munch on because restaurants are for the undedicated, etc. But once you are actually in […]Read more "Now Playing Review – Due Date"

Bliss Cavendar is a seventeen year old girl […]Read more "Review: Whip It"
