Friday Fishbird Flicks 📽 – wherein I watch a movie that everyone has already seen, and talk very briefly about it so we can get on with other things 🤩.
This week I watched the 2019 movie “Wine Country” starring Amy Poehler, Emily Spivey, Paula Pell, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch & Ana Gasteyer.
These women are funny and awesome – so prepare to go down an SNL YouTube rabbit hole after watching this flick.
With my 40th birthday coming up later this year, and a bunch of my old (they’re pretty old) friends already trying to beat me to the magic number – I was excited for this friends road trip movie 🙂
I laughed out loud many times in this film & found the dialogue to be real and reflective of the silliness and shorthand that arises between friends of a certain vintage.
It was a heartfelt and relatable movie, without being too schmaltzy.
Saying that, there’s nothing unpredictable about this movie – but it will have you guzzling wine and eating cheese slices like nobody’s business.
8 Fishbirds out of 10.
I paired this movie with a few glasses of Great Lakes Wines Shiraz Cabernet & poured some on the carpet in honour of good friends.
Don’t tell my landlord.
