BARENAKED IN AMERICA

No, it's not what you think. No, it's not an adult film. Let me tell you this. Think of a band who's name has the words bare and naked in it. That's right it's a documentary about the Barenaked Ladies. It was directed by their fellow Canadian countryman Jason Priestly (Beverly Hills 90210 fame). He did this documentary to show the trials, tribulations, failures, and the successes of the Canadian band the Barenaked Ladies. It tells their trips from childhood to adult and the previous things mentioned. Priestly does a good job at showing how five from Canada can push themselves to succeed. Yes, they've had some set backs, like having one member of the band go into the hospital, because of Lukiema, and making his way back to the band.
This also tells how they all wound up meeting and how and why they decided to form a band called The Barenaked Ladies. One interesting fact that I learned while watching this was they got kicked off a Canadian music festival tour because of their name. The mayor of Toronto thought that they were naked women dancing and singing and told them they were not able to perform.

20+1+2=23, 8+6+6+3=23,

The Number 23 is a mystery movie starring Jim Carrey. It was a very interesting movie about how everything adds up to the number 23. This all starts when Carrey's character Walter reads a book called The Number 23. It tells a story about a kid named Fingerling who becomes a detective. He finds out that the lady who kills herself has a name that comes down to the number 23. I am not going to tell you how or why, except that it does. The book in the movie is written by someone named "Topsy Krett." That's top secret for those who don't get it. All in all The Number 23 was alot better than I thought it was going to be. This is all that I am going to tell you for now. Watch the rest and tell me what you think!!!!!!!!
