Bottle Shock..................Based on a True Story

Bottle Shock

How bad can it be?  I mean it has Alan Rickman it!  Who doesn't love Snape?  And it has the guy who played Captain Kirk in the latest Star Trek movie.  He can even sort of act, unlike the original Captain Kirk.  And Bill Pullman.  He was the President in Independence Day.  You have to trust him. Right?  If you were thinking all of this, then welcome to Bottle Shock.

I found this movie because the trailer was before some other movie.  I don't even remember which one but it looked like fun.  Then I discovered it was on Instant Viewing, so when we had a family get together with my parents,  (HI MOM) we all watched it.  It just the right kind of film.  Funny and light and an underdog for whom to cheer. Everyone thirteen and up found it enjoyable.

What to know before viewing

1) Best line (it's in the trailer so I'm not spilling the beans.)  Bill Pullman- "Why don't I like you?"  Alan Rickman- " Because you think I am an asshole and I'm not really. I'm just British.....and well..... you're not."

2)  It's an indie.  A well done indie.  I didn't really get the low budget feel from it.

What about the kids?

I have decided I stink at this section.  I am oddly liberal on some things and conservative on others.  I have found to be very helpful on this matter.  Check them out if you have never used them before.  Here is what they had to say about this movie.  From now on I am just going to link them in this part.  LOL.

Currently on Netflix Instant Viewing and here.

Three Stars- "Liked It"

Just for fun, I am going to experiment with putting the trailer her.  We will see how it goes.


  1. I wanted to see this when it was in theaters. Thanks for the review!

  2. I love the attached trailer feature.

    And I'm very interested in this movie. Thanks for the review.

  3. Rachel- Thanks for saying you liked the trailer. It took me longer than I would like to admit to figure out how to embed it. LOL

  4. You nailed it, but then, I am your Mom. Actually, we all did enjoy the movie. You have yet to steer me wrong on a movie suggestion. What's next?

  5. Trailers are a nice touch. :)
    I saw this one a few months back. Really liked it. I always enjoy Alan Rickman.

  6. This sounds like my kind of movie and I'd never heard of it. Thanks!
