stop by, grab a sandwich, fall in love

During the winter, I watch a lot of movies.  There's something so nice about snuggling on the couch when it's cold outside.  So when I went to Blockbuster the other day, I found that I'd watched most of the new releases.  Lucky for me, Ten Inch Hero was a Blockbuster Exclusive and it caught my eye.  This movie is about four friends who work in a hip, surfer town sub shop.  The story mostly centers around Piper, an art student who has moved to California to search for the daughter that she was forced to give up for adoption eight years ago.  Over the course of the movie, all four friends learn a little about love and a lot about friendship.  This is a fun, light-hearted, quirky movie that will capture your heart and your imagination.  What I loved the most about this movie is that the characters feel very real.  Everything they say is something you can actually picture your friends saying.  Each of the actors so totally encompasses their roles that I can't say that I have a favorite; although, keep an eye out for Noah, played by Sean Patrick Flannery (he starred as teenage Indiana Jones in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones). 

Grab some popcorn and curl up with Ten Inch Hero this weekend.  And let me know what you think!
