Movie Review: Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green


This past weekend while in New York for BlogHer, I was invited to a special screening for Disney “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” movie, which hits theaters August 15. I won’t lie, I didn’t have any real expectations for the movie; it looked good but I wasn’t quite sure if it was something I wanted to see. “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” tells the story of the Green family, a couple (played by Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) who desperately wants to have a family but run into major bumps along the way. Then one rainy night Timothy (played by CJ Adam) shows up at the Green’s residence and the story goes from there!

 “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” was so good, I found myself in tears by the end of the movie and if anybody knows me they know, I don’t cry easily! I was literally in the movie theater holding back tears until it became too painful…lol. You know when that lump is in your throat and you blink 20 times a second to try to stop the tears… Yeah, that was me! Not only was this an awesome movies but there were several lessons that can be learned from it. But the most important lesson I learned was: Sometimes happiness can come in many unexpected forms we just have to open our hearts. While nothing lasts forever sometimes people come in our life to teach us things, so when their work is done and they are no longer in our lives it’s up to us to figure out what  the it was they were supposed to teach us.  All in all this movie is a must see, I definitely recommend you take the entire family.

 Check out the treats we got at the after party…

We also got to see some previews for some upcoming Disney movies, that I can’t wait to see… Including the Secret Life of Wings! I can’t wait to take the boychild, he is going to love it!
