  • R.Easterly - This product works Great!!!

    Original Review: I have been struggling with gaining weight for years now and I research different products online and came across this one. Of course like anyone else I doubted whether it worked but was happy when it did. I started taking it and I was right around 118lbs,by the end of 2 or 3 months,I had gained about 20lbs and was extremely happy. I had my curves back and I was smiling from ear to ear. Not to mention the ingredients are all natural and I didn't experience any side effects from taking it. I felt good and energized and was able to eat more food then before. Try it,it won't be wasted money

  • ray thomas - out of work porn actors

    Spent their production budget on the poster artwork. Who backed this financially and how can I meet them... I mean I_ they just want to throw money away, throw it my way. Some movies are so bad they're funny... this is not one of them.

  • Carl R. Rogers - The only one to see!

    The best "Scrooge" ever! Be taken back in time to when Christmas was more personal. Alastair Sim plays the lonley and shrewd "Scrooge" like none before & none after him. This "classic" Christmas movie needs to be part of your holiday DVD collection along with your "Charlie Brown" & "Rudolph" DVD's. Watch this DVD & learn one of the great values of the holiday season!

  • Kindle Customer - Really good book.

    Very well written with a great storyline. Gives a fair accounting of how the Irish were treated upon arrival in the U. S. All woven into an interesting story. Recommend highly.
