Nell Minow The Movie Mom | CB134

Yahoo! Roger Ebert. Huffington Post. The Motion Picture Association of America. The Movie Mom has rocked them all on a weekly basis with her biting movie reviews. Her job is to watch movies, and she really knows what makes a great film. Or a really terrible film. 

Movie Mom talks Nora Ephron, the WFOD Hollywood Fantasy League, why Batman vs Superman and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 are bad Fantasy League picks, Movie Mom’s 3 reasons Adam Carolla is wrong, why she’s the only critic in the world who liked the Bratz movie, which movies make money no matter what reviews say, good documentaries you should check out, Midnight Run, Good Girls Revolt, and some exclusive insider info about My Blue Heaven that no other reviewer will tell you. And later, Movie Mom accuses Adam Sandler of having contempt for the audience (with valid supporting evidence).
