The Book of Mormon (Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone)

Two young Mormons travel to Africa to preach the Mormon religion.

Cast: KJ Hippensteel, Cody Jamison Strand, Leanne Robinson, Steven Webb, Richard Lloyd King, Dean Maynard, Michael Moulton

❤️ I went to see this musical in London's West End, more precisely, in the Prince of Wales theatre.
I always thought that a musical - even a funny one - would have sad times (or sad songs) in order to break the pace. I had never seen a musical with non-stop laughter from beginning to end... until now!
A clever, hilarious, and overall brilliant form of entertainment that will have you pissing your pants!
There is never an easy way to approach the subject of religion, but the guys from South Park managed to do it brilliantly without being too offensive - although it contains strong language.
Amazing cast! Amazing songs, dancing, and scenery!
Definitely, a must-see!

15th Affair (James Patterson and Maxine Paetro)




Four bodies are found in a luxury hotel. The first is a man who checked in under a false name. Two are in a room next door, full of surveillance equipment. And the fourth is the maid.
Detective Lindsay Boxer is sent in to investigate and hunt down an elusive and dangerous suspect. But when her husband Joe goes missing, she begins to fear that the suspect she is searching for could be him.



Anything anyone says here is off the record. Even if you know who really shot Kennedy. Even if you know the location of the Holy Grail.


😐 I guess I am over the women murder club series, particularly now that Lindsay and Joe's relationship has taken over. It is fast paced and the mystery part is alright, but I could not care less about Lindsay's personal life.
I found this book in a hotel library, otherwise I would not have bought it.

À bras ouverts (Philippe de Chauveron)


A French intellectual who writes about living with an open-mind struggles to live up to his words when a Romani family begins camping on his front yard.


Starring: Christian Clavier, Ary Abittan, Elsa Zylberstein, Mirela Nicolau, Nikita Dragomir

❤️ A laugh out loud kind of movie with very clever insights. It had everyone in the cinema laughing all the way through.
Definitely, a must-see!

Papa ou maman 2 (Martin Bourboulon)


Two years have passed and the Leroy seem perfectly successful in their divorce. But two new lovers will turn the lives of Vincent and Florence into turmoil. The match between the former spouses resumes.


Starring: Laurent Lafitte, Marina Foïs, Alexandre Desrousseaux, Anna Lemarchand, Achille Potier, Alice Saignes, Louise Saignes, Michaël Abiteboul, Judith El Zein, Nicole Garcia


❤️ I am not a big fan of sequels since the second film is never as good as the first one. Well, they have proved me wrong!
Over recent years the French have shown the world that they can be funny and create great comedies, and they have done it once again!
Very funny film with great actors (including the children) and worth watching for laughs, on a Sunday afternoon, with the family.
You will not regret it!
