Carried Away at the Texas Theater in Dallas, Dec. 26, 2010
5 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Bill Reese is happy to have attended the premier of Tom Huckabee's movie "Carried Away," at the Texas Theater in Dallas, Dec. 26, 2010. Most of the cast were at the premier. After the first showing of the movie, there was a reception. The cast were there introducing themselves and answering questions about the movie. It was exciting to meet the actual stars in the movie and the writer/director, and the producers and editor.

The movie was captivating, hilarious, touching, relative, realistic. I will not spoil it by telling details, but I suggest this movie for everyone. It will offend all equally (kidding). No really though, it is very witty, without the use of excessive foul language, violence, or sex.
