Mighty Fine Movie Coming out

May 20, 2012 By · No Comments

The Mighty Fine Movie is coming out and I honestly can’t wait to see it. I almost got to see it this weekend however my computer would not work with the website. But I still want you to know about it. This is a film by Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld from her memories of her own childhood and her dad. It appears that her father, Joe Fine (played by Chazz Palminteri) had moments of bipolar disease and how the family dealt with it. The movie hits theaters May 25, 2012 so get ready.

This movie is rated r due to the drama that is involved in it. Mighty Fine is all about how a father moves his family from Brooklyn to New Orleans, Louisana for his job. As many of us know a move of any kind can be stressful on kids especially when they already have friends. Stella, the mother, (played by Andy MacDowell) reminds me a lot of myself she is soft spoken and basically does what Joe tells her to do. His two teen daughters, Maddie (16) and Natalie have completely different personalities as you would figure, one is more outspoken the younger daughter is an aspiring poet telling the story.

I’m a bit upset because I couldn’t see this for the premiere however I will definitely watch it. To see if you are in an area that will be showing Mighty Fine check the link, my area is not. As I stated before he seems to have some type of bipolar disorder or mood swings for sure. He constantly yells at his girls/wife but then will feel guilty and present them with gifts, the typical signs of an abuser. He is also known to spend money even when he doesn’t have it which only puts his family in worse conditions. It is definitely a movie that looks like it can teach families something, abuse is a topic not many talk about but should.


The story of “Mighty Fine” is fictional, but it draws to a great extent on writer/director Debbie Goodstein’s vivid memories of her childhood. “My father had anger issues, ups and downs, and living in his world could be a bit of a rollercoaster ride,” says Goodstein. “He loved his family but had self-destructive impulses and a rage that made life with him unpredictable and sometimes very scary.” Many of Goodstein’s friends also had fathers similar to her own, and she contrived the character of Joe Fine as a composite. Goodstein sees Joe as a creature of his time, someone who couldn’t exist today: “Joe Fine is the king of his castle, like so many men of the seventies. But even then, things were changing rapidly, and men like Joe, with all their bravado and patriarchal dominance, were poised for extinction. Today, with so many women in the workplace, that castle has become more of a stronghold of equanimity.”

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mighty Fine and the distributor. I received access to an online showing of the film, however I was unable to view it but did receive a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

Two New Additions to the Family

May 16, 2012 By · 1 Comment

Over the past weekend we welcomed two new additions to our family and I must say I haven’t seen everyone this happy in a while. Who knew pets would bring so much joy into the family? I sure didn’t. But I have 4 very happy faces to prove to me this is definitely a good thing. I must admit I have wanted a pet for a very long time but due to life I hadn’t got them. This past week we had the opportunity to get a kitten but when it was time to go get them there had been a misunderstanding and they were gone. The kids were crushed and I was depressed seeing the kids as down as they were. Hey when you have two kids crying because of anything you feel hurt.

But we ended up finding a craigslist add for kittens and went to check them out. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, as we drove out there I kept my fingers crossed as now I knew all the kids were hoping and it was an hour drive. What if we got up there and they too were gone? Once inside the house I saw a ton of kittens all cuddled up in a pink blanket. I kind of felt guilty just taking one, so I took two. I mean how can you take one when they are cuddled like that? They need someone to keep them company when you aren’t around. We put them in a small box and put them between my legs on the way home. The black one wanted to look around but the orange one was highly scared. Once at home it took some coaxing to get the orange one out but the black one was our little adventurer.

They’ve already adopted me as mom, in fact they will come up and jump in my lap once they see I have sat down. Both have wrapped themselves around my neck when they saw the girls designing my hair and were meowing the whole time at them. As for the kids, they hold them, play ball with them, chat with them and play chase. Currently the black one is in my lap, this is Shadow. The orange one is batting a ball that Little A is holding on a string, this one is Max. We can’t figure out the sex of either yet so we picked gender neutral names. Do you have any pets?
