French Children Don't Throw Food

Hey, did you hear? French children don’t throw food! But you know who does? Anne Hathaway. Okay, I made that up – Ms. Hathaway may or may not throw food. But she is set to star French Children Don’t Throw Food, adapted from the book of the same name. The story follows a journalist who moves to Paris for her husband’s job, and then has to try to balance her family and career. And at some point, the journalist will probably ask, “Hey, do French children throw food?” And then someone will say “Non!” in a thick French accent. At least, that’s what would happen if I were making this movie.

bloodshot vod sales

One of the few good things about not reporting box office numbers at the moment is that we don’t have to see how audiences around America ignore the critically acclaimed, underseen fare in favor of the bad popcorn flick of the month.

Also: it has a witch as one of its villains, which is a selling point I feel like more people should’ve brought up. That’s right, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have to fight a witch in this movie. If you still need some convincing (even after the witch part), the first 9 minutes of the film are now online to give you a little taste.
