Weekends in Connecticut! It's all about pets!


First my movie pick: Tom & Jerry!

A legendary rivalry reemerges when Jerry moves into New York City's finest hotel on the eve of the wedding of the century, forcing the desperate event planner to hire Tom to get rid of him. As mayhem ensues, the escalating cat-and-mouse battle soon threatens to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself. Starring the voices of Colin Jost ( SNL News host and married to Scarlett Johannsen) and more! Take a look!

Tom & Jerry was released today on multiple streaming platforms and in theatres.

Better Weekends!
