My Review:  I have ALWAYS loved this movie. I was so excited to be able to share it with my daughter. She sat down and watched it twice!! She loves it now as much as I do. My husband and I sat down with her and had a family movie night. I think that this is one of the best movies of all time and I am soooo excited that it came out on DVD and BluRay!!!

TV Moms: On-screen& Off-screen

In Season 7 of Bones, Brennan welcomes her most challenging role yet when she becomes a first time mother.  When Actress Emily Deschanel announced her pregnancy in the season before, the writers found a way to combine Deschanel’s real life news and her alter-ego’s storyline. In this feature, we will take a look at other actresses who’s real life pregnancy intertwined with their characters’ on-screen lives. 

JENNIFER GARNER

When Jennifer Garner was pregnant with her first child, Violet, the pregnancy was worked into the final season of Alias, making kick-ass Sydney Bristow one spy with a bun in the oven.

LISA KUDROW

Description: http://images.wikia.com/friends/images/9/9c/5x03_Phoebe_triplets.jpg

Lisa Kudrow’s real-life pregnancy was written into the 4th and 5th season of Friends.  However, instead of making the actress give birth to a baby of her own, the writers crafted a storyline where she became the surrogate mother to her brother’s triplets.  

ALYSON HANNIGAN

Description: lyson Hannigan

When Alyson Hannigan became pregnant with her second child, her character Lily on How I Met Your Mother was already expecting so the writers didn’t have to change much with the story line.  Talk about perfect timing!

JANUARY JONES

The writers of Mad Men took a different route when January Jones announced her pregnancy. Instead of making her character, Betty Draper, pregnant, Jones made her character fat by creating a story line about a tumor in her thyroid.  A fat suit was brought in to cover Jones’ bump and perpetuate the “fat” character arch in the season

JENNA FISCHER

Life certainly imitated art when Jenna Fischer announced she was expecting first child with her husband, Lee Kirk.  Fischer, who plays Pam inThe Office, was already scheduled to give birth to a second child in the show after Pam and Jim had a little Valentine’s Day lovin’.  The story line was already in place and but it was only when Fischer shot the episode did she find out she was really preggers.
