He looks tired. If I had the kind of schedule he's had lately, I'd be dead! And I get to see "Home" in a few hours !

 

He was up at 4 in the morning posting and liking pics on IG!  Silly goose!

Animated offering Home is taking off at the Friday box office, putting it on course to beat R-rated comedy Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.

 

It's still early, but first returns show the music-infused family title grossing north of $40 million for the weekend in a needed win for Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation. Some even believe Home, benefiting from some kids being on spring break, could do in the mid-$40 million range, possible marking the best showing for an original DWA title since Megamind in 2010 ($46 million).

 

The voice cast includes Rihanna in her first turn in an animated film, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin (expect lots of singing from Rihanna and Lopez). Home follows the adventures of a teenage girl on the run and a misfit alien.

 

Home, costing $130 million to make, got off to an outstanding start last weekend internationally, grossing $20.1 million from only 10 markets, including a $9.1 million debut in the U.K.....Deadline Box Office

Pete Hammond loves Home:  

 

Move over, E.T.: There’s a new lovable alien on Earth and ironically he’s in a movie called HomeThis new DreamWorks Animation confection is the company’s only planned release this year, and as I say in my video review above it is out-of-this-world fun for the whole family.

 

The movie skews very, very young, but adults should be happy to go along for the ride on this road trip, though, because of the zippy dialogue in Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember’s screenplay and a fine voice cast led by Jim Parsons as Oh, that lovable alien I talked about. Oh is basically on the lam from his own kind, the Boovs, a society of aliens who take over Earth in their own determined, unique ways. He wants to make friends though and finds one in human kindred spirit Tip, voiced by Rhianna. Her mother (voiced by Jennifer Lopez) has, like most other humans, been relocated and Tip is left to fend for herself.  She teams with Oh for a wild road-trippy movie that’s about as peppy and frenetic a ‘toon in a long while. That’s why it will keep kids with short attention spans tuned in all the way.

I'm so happy to see these good reviews.  The initial ones I read (I think mostly from industry media) were saying that it was too much like ET (and I don't think that's true at all) or that it's all been done before, and that it wouldn't do good box office.

 

To me the snippets I've seen in the trailers and other little scenes make it seem much more fun than ET and sweeter because it does have a little message about acceptance or whatever.

 

And I think that it's also going to get a boost from the fans of Jim and Rhianna, who will go no matter how old they are.

Ooh, I'm going to watch that when I get home.  I'm pretty sure I got the ancient artifact set up properly today!

 

My neck and shoulder are tight and a little sore.  I need Sheldon to come and massage my shoulders and tell me to relax all my muscles--except the ones that hold back the urine and feces... :p :p :p

I wonder if he's going to get any down time, though, since he's already working on learning his lines for the show.

He has 3 more tapings, the last one on the 21st of April, and then they start previews of AOG on May 5th.

 

I have a feeling he's going to be exhausted by the end of the summer.  I think the play goes into August, and then they'll be back to TBBT by the end of that month.

And this play is essentially all him, apart from 2 archangels characters.

 

I don't know how he does it--clean living? :p

There was a link included in there with the full episode, but there is not a separate clip of just Jim other than the one included in the post.

I like how he says "you wouldn't know it by looking at me" when literally every person who has seen him in the past and is seeing him now can tell that he's been working out and bulking up lol.

Even when he was on Tom & Lorenzo's fashion blog a few weeks ago they mentioned how good his thighs looked. All that dead lifting is definitely working for him.

I'm recording it on my ancient VCR, but I don't think that will do you any good. :p

My DVR is getting a little full because of a certain man

Just returned home from "Home" and in my opinion it was everything it was cracked up to be.  Initially the draw was listening to Jim for over an hour, but the movie is cute and meaningful on several levels.  Oh probably could have been voiced by another actor, but Jim really did add something special.  And I got little tingles when I saw Jim's name listed first in the credits.  Everyone involved should be proud of this movie.

Ditto.  Thanks for writing my review.
