Some of you know that I had a small part in a Drew Barrymore movie that was filmed in Alaska in fall 2010. Over the past few months, it's been a total kick to see the trailer, and then the commercial. If you don't blink, I appear in both of them--look for the kids sitting in front of the television set and I'm the mother sitting behind them. I literally shrieked when I saw the trailer for the first time, something along the lines of "OHMYGODTHEREIAM!"
This Friday, the movie comes out. I'm a little scared to see it--I hate how I look in photos, much less larger than life on a movie screen. If you see me, just remember that the camera adds ten pounds, and the mom jeans don't help either.
The studio was nice enough to do a screening this past Sunday for the Alaska-based cast and crew. I had a matinee of Love, Loss and missed the screening, but it's a good, family-friendly film with an obvious animal rights message.
My proud parents (I swear, they haven't been this excited since I graduated from law school) tell me they're heading to a movie theatre in St. Louis this weekend, but it's going to be a week or so before I go see it.
If you see it, let me know what you think!
