The World's First Twurkey! #

Released 11/23/2016

Description: I thought the concept was funny so I animated it. This is a strictly cg twerking turkey. For those who don't know, Twerking (/ˈtwɜːrkɪŋ/) is a kind of dancing in which an individual, often female, moves to melody involving thrusting hip movements and a weak squatting stance. Twerking is also known as "booty shaking" and "bounce" depending on the context. In 2005, a trio of teenage women founded the "Twerk Team", and joined YouTube on June 5, 2009. The squad is actually composed of two African American sisters from Atlanta, Georgia. Since the foundation of the team, they have been posting videos of "them gyrating and shaking their butts, to a mission that it's artistic". It has been making the entire globe laugh regardless of age, standing, or even political affiliation (shocking right?) Everything you see I made. Melody is by myself using royalty gratis samples.

Playing for Keeps Reviews:

Just saw Testing for Keeps at a preview screening last night. Several script surprises in this stock-standard romantic comedy. If you didn't see the end coming in the first 20 minutes, you weren't paying attention. Still, a pleasant date night diversion nonetheless. Direction and photography were above average. All the actors played their parts up to the very limits of the script. Gerard Butler was quite believable in his role as the womanizing ex- soccer star ready to be a grownup. Female members of the audience voiced their approval of him right on cue throughout the movie. His lifelong real-world enthusiasm for soccer (particularly the Celtics) shone though in quite a number of scenes. The entourage of swooning soccer moms was also a treat to watch. Judy Greer stole the present in her role as Barb. Her mercurial mood changes were simply hilarious. Dennis Quaid's turn as a mysteriously wealthy local businessman and paranoid husband was a hoot. I can't recall many roles he's played that offered the peculiar mix of affable nice guy/sinister terrible guy seen here.Not a possibility you'll see this movie on scene at Oscar time, but it's worth the price of admission. Recommended.


An honest movie, well acted, well written and well directed. Somehow refreshing to see a comedy that should it go wrong easy and instead was delivered in a classy and delicate manner. Honesty is the greatest attribute to describe this movie; it is never over the top, and it doesn't pretend to be what is not. A classic comedy about becoming an adult with a nice set of values. Gerard plays his role in a credible tone as all his co-stars, Jessica is wonderful and gives a very powerful performance. How you know is a nice performance? because you'll trust her. The young Noah performance holds next to the others. Unique mention to all the secondary characters that played their greatest with the roles. I want more films like this one will receive out there and be seeing. The Italian Helmer "Gabriele" did the greatest thing that a director can do: create the film work as a entire with a seamless direction. Well done and highly recommended.


¨How do you receive to meet so many hot women? –I have an accent.¨Director Gabriele Muccino has been successful in the past (The Pursuit of Happiness and Seven Pounds), but in Testing for Keeps he seems to have lost his touch. Everything that can go wrong in a film goes wrong here with a very formulaic and cliché script, a predictable story, and some over the top performances. Dennis Quaid seems to be testing the same role he played in What to Expect When Your Expecting with a very eccentric approach that hurts the film even more and presents it in a very cartoonish way. Gerard Butler is other talented actor who seems to have lost his touch as well in the newest years with some terrible films. Not even the pretty and talented ladies (Catherine Zeta Jones, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, and Judy Greer) were enough to save this poor movie. The main trouble was its script which was written by Robbie Fox who hadn't written a screenplay since 1994 (the poor In The Units Now) and shouldn't have even considered making a comeback. What I can tell about this movie is that despite not being funny it is tolerable. It is not one of those movies that bore you to death; but it is fully predictable and cliché. I wouldn't tell this is fully a family friendly movie despite the satisfied ending considering the main hero is type of a playboy. Despite the interesting cast this movie is fully lazy and empty.The storyline centers on George (Gerard Butler) a successful soccer user who played in necessary clubs across Europe and ended his career in the MLS. He hasn't had the same success in his retirement and has failed in a couple of business enterprises. George decides to transport to Virginia where his ex-wife, Stacie (Jessica Biel), lives along with their young son Lewis (Noah Lomax). He wants to be a better father and therefore moves close to their home so he can spend some more time with him. Stacie is living with her fiancé, Matt (James Tupper), and they both accept that George be closer to Lewis. While George is trying to search a job as a sports anchor, he starts coaching his son's soccer team. Since he was a well known user all the parents accept he could coach the squad and they are all exited that he has decided to be involved, especially the moms which contain Patti (Uma Thurman), Denise (Catherine Zeta Jones), and Barb (Judy Greer). Barb is an emotional recently divorced mother, Denise is a former successful TV anchor who offers to support George in achieving his goal, and Patti is a seductive girl who is married to the rich, but manic, Carl (Dennis Quaid). George's soccer career might be over, but he finds quite a local fanatic base as a coach. His success with the ladies continues, but he doesn't wish that to be a distraction as he becomes more and more involved in the life of his son. He also discovers that he has feelings for Stacie, and we all know where this movie is heading from there.There is not much more I can tell about this extremely formulaic film. Don't be fooled by this family friendly movie because it is type of creepy in a method with the main hero having all these moms stocking him. The impressive cast isn't enough to save this movie since it has a poor script and the performances were really lazy. Jessica Biel received a Razzie nomination for her performance in this movie along with her work in Total Recall, but who I think was really poor here was Dennis Quaid. The only believable thing about the movie was the soccer choreographies which were done really well. They didn't seem as fake as in some another soccer movies. This is a very forgettable film, but it was tolerable and some of my family members had a nice time. http://estebueno10.blogspot.com/
