“For A Good Time, Call…” is the perfect “girlfriend movie” and a fantastic example of how a female-led cast does raunchy!

INTERVIEW: Producer Don Hahn of ‘The Lion King’

‘The Lion King’ has proven to be one of Disney’s top animated movies. When the “Circle Of Life” starts playing, it’s guaranteed goose bumps and smiles across the faces of everyone in the audience.
