- Melissa Campana Zig ZAG II SP
I adore these Melissa flats so much and own the Campana Zig Zag in several colors. My previous Melissa Campana Zig Zag flats broke/tore at the heel and toe areas because they were too small, but I managed to get a good two years out of them! It's unfortunate that they don't come in half sizes because I usually wear a size 7 or 7.5. In these shoes, the 7 is just a smidge too small and the 8 are a smidge too big (but sizing is as I would expect). Since the plastic is smooth and does not "grip" to the foot, the bigger size somewhat flops around at the heel when walking. I opted for the smaller size so they would stay on easier.
I bought these to replace my old pair that broke and the one thing I would like to point out about these particular black Melissa flats were they happened to be a colorful sparkle (with hints of blue, green, and red) instead of a "flat black" sparkle like an old pair I have. In the photo I uploaded, you will see the comparison of the flat black sparkle (left) vs. colorful black sparkle (right). The colorful sparkle certainly is gorgeous and is fairly subtle, but since I wear these to work, they seemed a little too unprofessional with the colorful sparkle. I ended up returning them and searched high and low for the flat black sparkle.
Love my shoes!!! I have wanted a pair for over a year! I finally plunged in and bought a pair. I wear a 9.5 USA so I bought a 10. They fit with a little toe room.
They smell wonderful! Like grapes.
I have rainbow glitter on mine, it does get everything glittery, but I love glitter so I don't mind. I'm sure that the excess glitter fall will lessen.
They tore on the first night of me wearing them
For both me and my toddler! Such comfortable shoes and wonderful for the summer. If you are looking for arch support there really isn't any......
OMG. OMG. OMGOMGOMG.
Repellent, horrid, vile, misbegotten.
Not even a little amusing.
Go away, save yourself
Sandy Patterson is a corporate accountant in Denver Colorado. All round nice guy with a loving wife, Trish, and two young children. One day, he tries to use his credit card at the gas station and is declined. Apparently, he is over his limit due to his excessive purchases in Florida.
That's just the beginning of Sandy's problems. He's even temporarily arrested in Denver due to an outstanding bench warrant in Florida. To make a long story short, and to make it right with his boss, Sandy heads to Florida. In a stroke of genius, he realizes from one of the illegal purchases that he knows where the thief will be on a certain day and time.
His plan: to cart the thief, Diana Budgie, back to Colorado for charging. The police have given him a photo of the mug shot taken for her latest Florida arrest. As he's packing his bags, Trish tries to talk him out of the trip: "Don't do this. This is not who you are. You're not Batman."
Sandy holds up the mug shot: "She's not dangerous. That number right there's her height. It's Hobbit height."
It turns out Diana is a LOT more than he can handle. Add in two gangsters Diana cheated and a tough-guy skip tracer, and there is never a dull moment.
"Identity Thief" premiered in February 203. It was #1 at the box office two of its first 3 weeks. It is a comedy but for the first half of the movie, the comedy is muted due to Diana's basic amoral nastiness. She is an astoundingly gifted and believable liar. When desperate times call for desperate measures and Sandy and Diana are forced to work together against the people chasing them, it morphs into a buddy movie.
I laughed out loud several times, and I liked the non-Hollywood, or maybe only semi-Hollywood, ending. Recommended viewing.
I bought this as a gift for my niece. I thought it a good deal since it on sales on Amazon, this is an old shoes. Outside and inside the shoes is dirty. Disgusting.
We’ve bought mini Melissa’s dozens of time, but this last pair seemed less durable and not the same quality. The unicorn actually broke off after a couple of months - for the price, I would like a stronger quality.
The movie wasn't great, but watching it a second and third time do make it a little better. The special features are the standard deleted scenes and making of. This package included a DVD which is a plus, I'd have preferred that there had been a 4K option but that isn't a huge deal. What really sucks is that the "Digital Copy" included is an iTunes copy. I have exactly one Apple device that I use regularly and that's my business phone so an iTunes copy doesn't do much for me. I linked accounts and all of my other movies became viewable on my iTunes account, but this movie never showed up on the other accounts, meaning the digital copy is pretty much useless, had I known this before ordering I probably would've waited till it was in the bargain bin and spent much less on it.
Like most movies I buy, I ensure I get the one with the digital copy so that I can enjoy the movie from anywhere. This digital code, however, is an iTunes ONLY code. So... in order to get the digital copy, I had to download iTunes, create an iTunes account and Apple ID, agree to God knows what with all their agreements and restrictions TWICE (there are separate ones for just the store), figure out how to link my MoviesAnywhere account to iTunes, and THEN i was supposed to be able to watch it digitally. It's been 24 hours and still hasn't shown up on any linked account. It's a Universal Studios movie... why not use their built in UniversalRedeem.com? Or MoviesAnywhere? Or anything else???
Sesame Street was undoubtedly a memorable part of immeasurable childhoods over the past fifty years, me included. So now, after Jim Henson’s work left such an impression on millions, his son Brian (The Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island), presses old Father Kermit T. Frog’s legacy further. What has he brought us today? No number lessons. No dandy songs. No celebration of differences. No hilarious skits. Now about the skits, I can say several Sesame Street YouTube clips I have watched in the past had me literally rolling on the floor laughing, they were clearly made by passionate experts who knew how to entertain kids and adults alike. Yet The Happytime Murders, despite attempts to satirize our inclusion issues like last year’s Bright, fails to entertain anybody.
First, it’s hard to believe the puppetry in this flick seems run by people who never touched a sock before in their lives. Remember how Bert and Ernie’s skits were always funny despite their immobile faces? The puppeteers’ simple rhythmic hand gestures breathed out incredible tangible emotions that brought Bert and Ernie to life. Here, the felt figures always remain rigid, as if the crew controlling them were simply told, “move your thumb up and down to make the jaw move,” that’s it. Nothing else generated a hint of life from those static faces.
In fact, why use puppets at all? The only way the story integrates puppets into its scenarios happens when one bully rips off a puppet’s eye in the first scene. Other than that, the puppets’ species identification leaves zero effect on the plot; use mammals, mutants, or orcs instead, and everything would stay the same. That applies also to a liver transplant Melissa McCarthy’s character got from her puppet partner; make it an orc liver and nothing changes.
The folks behind Black Bear Pictures completely misunderstood that for something to be a social commentary, it must mirror reality accurately. Case in point, inside this version of modern Los Angeles, poachers are shown exactly once illegally trading puppets’ feet… apparently it really happens nowadays? These screenwriters should‘ve focused further on the word “Dummies,” a racial slur for puppets, but like the puppet poaching, it’s only mentioned once briefly.
If you somehow saw The Happytime Murders already, you most likely forgot those parts until I reminded you. Apparently, a sex tape of a squid milking a cow has priority over detailed worldbuilding (again, the fact that they’re puppets is irrelevant). Oh, that’s right. There’s hardcore porn in this movie! And it gets better: a puppet dalmatian tortures its firefighter tied to a bed, fifty shades style! But that’s nothing compared to the masterful potty humor that happens in between, when one bunny puppet caught eye-to-gun pees glitter then craps Easter eggs. The comedy works because… well… who knows!?
Then a full-on, surprisingly dull sex scene happens between two puppets that climaxes with semen made of silly string shooting onto the office walls. During my college days, I learned six key comedy rules:
1. Comedy is Conflict.
2. Comedy is Conviction.
3. Comedy is Deception.
4. Comedy is Greatest Wish and Worst Fear.
5. Comedy is Truth.
6. Comedy is Chaos and Anarchy.
Said office sex accomplishes just 1 out of 6.
Maybe a better editor could have turned the awfully written jokes decent, but I honestly doubt it, the loud anti-comedian Melissa McCarthy’s irksome double-bladed insults puts her at an ultimate low. Although the ultimate reason why these jokes fall flat is simply because nobody working on this understood basic puppet psychology; why did they think puppets snort hyper sucrose through licorice instead of cocaine? Because it’s related to kids? What shallow thinking! Brian Henson clearly was going for a mix between a satirical buddy cop thriller that counteracts that of a “playtime” atmosphere yet because of the low contrast in the image, he can’t even get the basics of that right. The color grading is not the only thing creating an amateurish look though, the puppeteers’ erased green screen suits behind their puppets can be very clearly spotted, which somehow still looks less cheap than the outdoor highlights blown out by the sun.
If none of that was bad enough, the writers throw in hinted puppet-human romances that haunts your senses to the levels of Howard the Duck under the bedsheets beside Lea Thompson. Why can’t these dissimilar species just be friends? Oh right, racial allegory, duh! Hilarious, in celebrating integration of differences, The Happytime Murders unintentionally says people ought to pursue romance with their own kind, because anything apart from that becomes borderline bestiality.
Honestly, it infuriates quite a lot to see such miniscule effort send Jim Henson’s grave spinning. Why must our relationships alongside inanimate human-shaped objects come to this?
Yes they are cute! Yes hey smell very good! But won't last that long! I bought 2 pairs and both torn apart in 3 months
I love my melissa thks!!!! ????
GLITTER ✨, super comfy just like my other campañas. This brand does not rub my feet wrong at all. The only thing about a fresh pair with glitter, is that the excess glitter falls off for a few days.
Three episode in and season 9 is amazing!
Masterfully funny. Amazing versatility this actress has, repair with everyone. She is very cool as is this characterization
Love this movie
The hard-hitting comedic punch of Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig is brilliantly show-cased in their latest film, “Spy.” Once again director and writer Paul Feig creates a masterful backdrop to display McCarthy’s delightful improvisational talents. A top-billing she deserves and should have earned after her Oscar-nominated role in “Bridesmaids.”
The fun doesn’t end with McCarthy. The supporting cast of Jude Law, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Allison Janney and Miranda Hart make “Spy” a well-rounded farce.
Feig’s setting for “Spy” is a tongue in cheek acknowledgement to 007. McCarthy plays CIA desk-jockey, Susan Cooper. A bright, cyber tactician who graduated at the top of her class; unfortunately, her docile demeanor has sabotaged her ability to get any “real-world” assignments. Even though on the field Cooper happens to be lethal, just ask her last instructor. The video clip of her graduating obstacle test is stomach wrenchingly funny and disturbing. With the cautionary blessing of her boss, played by Allison Janney, Cooper ventures onto her first mission to thwart the sale of a nuclear bomb.
In her way is Statham’s character who tries to sabotage her attempts to get intel and stop the sale. Statham plays a disheartened CIA spy who doesn’t believe Cooper is capable of completing her mission. Many times Statham steals the scene with his rantings and ravings as the toughest spy while he follows McCarthy throughout Europe.
Rose Byrne as the arms dealer and femme fatale, Raina Boyanov becomes the bunt of many hilarious improvisational jokes when she meets and befriends McCarthy. Byrne’s eccentric hairstyles and McCarthy’s grim wigs almost take on their own persona in many scenes. Yet it doesn’t stop Bryne or McCarthy from delivering delicious zingers at each other.
“Spy” has a great cast and script that allows the masterful improv, McCarthy, to shine throughout the film. She gracefully plays the straight man to let her supporting cast sparkle. This role shows her evolving as an actress and developing as a multi-faceted comedian. “Spy” is definitely another notch in McCarthy’s comedic black belt.
Spy (2015) film review by benMUSA
Starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Allison Janney and Miranda Hart.
How to laugh out loud often enough to annoy the other people in your airplane seat row? Watch “Spy” using earphones during a long trip! I confess, I was just trying to while away the time and not expecting that much when I bought “Spy” to watch on board. But boy did “Spy” show me!
Susan Cooper is a CIA field agent who has willingly been relegated to “the basement”, where she is the behind-the-scene reason for agent Bradley Fine’s success. When he’s on a mission, they are connected via earphone and she has an array of computer monitors in front of her. She can tell him, “Go left” or “You have a little friend [killer] on the landing”. (The CIA wishes it had this capability for real.)
The fully-trained Cooper is willing to remain the trusted sidekick because she has a major crush on Fine. Maybe even she’s in love with him. When a crisis forces her boss to send Cooper into the field, Susan is determined to show that she still has the stuff to be an effective field agent. This is not so easy when the first alias they give her is a Cat Lady.
This 119-minute movie is a hoot. The ending is perfect – make sure to watch to the very very end. I was half afraid that, after her success, Susan Cooper was going to devolve into a needy supplicant, and I’m glad that they didn’t go that route.
“Spy” is rated “R” for: “Language throughout, violence, and some sexual content including brief graphic nudity.” I thought the violence was more tame than the typical of action movie (I’d rate it an early James Bond-like) and the nudity so brief I can’t remember it (maybe it was cut for the airplane). The F-bomb is dropped a LOT. I laughed so hard that I would love to give this movie to my folks, but I’ve decided not to because of the language. However, I am buying it for us when it comes out on DVD.
