LuLa Rich: Amazon’s take on the scam targeting work-from-home moms
If you like real crime drama why not try this new docusery that Amazon is trying to present as “real comedy”, to which I’m tempted to say: “stop trying to make” real comedy “, Gretchen! ”
But I have to hand it to them, this show is real, and it looks pretty funny too.
The four-part documentary follows the rise and fall of LulaRoe, the infamous multi-level marketing company that promised home-working mothers a revolution in comfort clothing.
Suffice to say, it was all a bit of a sham, and this series explains how things went so terribly wrong, including interviews with founders DeAnne and Mark Stidham.

Everybody’s talking about Jamie
This film began as a hit UK musical which premiered in Sheffield in 2017, before moving to the West End later that year, where it has since been staged (aside from the various Covid lockdowns that hit the UK).
Now getting the treatment on the big screen (or the small screen, depending on how you view the debate over streaming semantics), this story of a young queer boy growing up in Sheffield is sure to capture more fans across. the world.
The heartwarming story follows main character Jamie, as he reckons with his secret ambition to become a drag queen, which puts him at odds with his unfavorable father and his homophobic peers.
Newcomer Max Harwood stars as Jamie, while Sarah Lancashire, Ralph Ineson, Sharon Horgan, and Richard E. Grant are also starring.
The wife of the time traveler
Disclaimer: This isn’t a good movie by any means, but it’s definitely crowd pleaser, and who doesn’t love the Rachel McAdams era of romantic comedy? (I have to note that McAdams is actually a brilliant actress making more and more interesting choices in her career, but her main lady chops were refined in the 2000s in films like this).
Based on the bestselling novel, the film follows a Chicago librarian named Henry (Eric Bana), who suffers from a disorder that means he travels through time uncontrollably, which would suck when you really think about it. .
How does a man carry out a job, let alone a relationship? Either way, against all odds, he falls in love with a woman named Clare, played by McAdams. The plot is silly, but McAdams and Bana are bright.
Looper is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
Before Rian Johnson does his excellent Agatha Christie murder mystery Knives Out, and before he makes his controversy (but in my opinion, also excellent) Star wars following The Last Jedi, he wrote and directed this compellingly original science fiction with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.
It’s set in a future where mobs have the ability to send targets back in time to be killed by mercenaries like Joe (Gordon-Levitt) in the past.
However, things get complicated when Joe finds out that his future has been sent back to him to be killed by him in order to “close the loop.” Emily Blunt also plays in a particularly interesting role.
