Jennifer Garner may have her hands full with three adorable kids at home — Violet, 7, Seraphina, 3, and baby Samuel, 10 months — but her hard work as a working mother has paid off. Today’s Parent magazine crowned her celebrity mother of the year for 2012!
The magazine stated one of the reasons she nabbed the top spot is that she manages to be relatable to other moms, while still looking ”gorgeous and put-together.” The popular parenting mag also said she is open about the struggles as a working mom of three – particularly during her interview with Conan O’Brien on Oct. 3.

Synopsis: A childless couple bury a box in their backyard containing all of their wishes for the perfect child. Soon, a child is born, but little Timothy Green is not all that he appears…
Meet the Greens. A seemingly ordinary couple who want one thing more than anything in the world: simply to have a child, and not just any child, but their perfect child. As the parents, Cindy and Jim Green (excellently played by Hollywood mainstay Jennifer Garner and the gradually increasing presence that is Joel Edgerton) place a box containing their ideal child traits in the garden during a freak storm, in typical Disney fashion, their child appears.
There is something not quite right about Timothy Green (Cj Adams) who is more strange than miraculous.
Don’t get me wrong, Cj Adams is »

Jennifer Garner, 40, not only remains an A-list actress and looks amazing without makeup -- but she's now also being recognized as an incredible mother to her three kids with Ben Affleck, Violet, 7, Seraphina, 3, and Samuel, 10 months.
The woman who has it all was just crowned Today's Parent Magazine's Celebrity Mother of the Year, where according to the popular mag, she won by "a landslide." The magazine lists obvious reasons such as how Jennifer appears relatable yet still "gorgeous and put-together," but they also note her honesty about being overwhelmed and exhausted as a mother of three, specifically her surprisingly candid admission to Conan O'Brien in August that she's done having kids.

Wow, can it really be 23 years since Billy Crystal was sitting across from Meg Ryan at the deli as she really, really enjoyed her lunch?!

It’s a very distinct world we’re entering when The Odd Life of Timothy Green begins, and while the film capitalizes wonderfully on the potential, it unfortunately also falls victim to some of the traps.
Jim and Cindy Green (Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner) are a happy couple living the medium-town life, but when they learn that they aren’t going to be able to have kids, they don’t take it very well. In an effort to deal with their sense of mourning, they bury all their hopes and dreams for their child in the backyard. That night, Timothy shows up in their house, covered in dirt and ready for middle school. Their self-proclaimed son left a large hole in the garden in his wake, and comes equipped with leaves growing out of his calves.
The Greens are naturally at something of a loss, but there seems no »

Chicago – “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is the sort of extravagantly wrong-headed misfire that perhaps only could’ve been made by talented people. The director is Peter Hedges, an accomplished screenwriter best known for adapting his excellent book, “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” for the big screen. The ensemble cast reads like a roll call of America’s most reliable character actors.
What went wrong? Oh, where to begin? It appears as if Hedges had set out to construct a heartwarming family drama out of increasingly uncomfortable, squirm-inducing scenarios. Consider the multitude of moments in which goggle-eyed adults ask a child if they can touch him and he happily complies. Or the scene where that same creepy kid draws a startlingly sexy portrait of an old curmudgeon. Or how about all of those times when the saintly brat just stands there smiling for no apparent reason.
Blu-ray Rating: 1.5/5.0

Cinelinx celebrates The Odd Life of Timothy Green Blu-ray!
A couple desperate to have a child bury their written wishes in a box in their garden, only to have them spring to life in the form of a young boy, Timothy.
Directed by: Peter Hedges
Judging by the trailer, I expected The Odd Life of Timothy Green to be one of those rare films that sucked you in to its quirky, orignal world and provided a modern fairy tale. Unfortunately, that's not what you get. This fantasy/drama from screenwriter/director Peter Hedges is an uneven affair, primarily because it fails to completely sell the viewer on the fantasy premise.
Hedges, nominated for an Oscar for writing About a Boy, has been behind a number of character-driven drama/comedies, including What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Dan in Real Life. Somehow, Timothy Green never reaches their level. »

Jennifer Garner’s uplifting family movie, “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” has been released on DVD and Blu-ray. The movie turned off a lot of critics because of its old-fashioned heart-tugging themes, but it’s feel-good entertainment at it’s best. Garner exudes empathy and warmth on the screen like no other actress. She joins Joel Edgerton as Cindy and Joe Green, a couple anxious to start a family. The dream of what their child will be like until a child shows up on their doorstep on, yes, a dark and stormy night. Ten-year-old Timothy (C.J. Adams ) is naked and covered in dirt when he arrives.

The Oscars are almost upon us, and the past few weeks have treated us to the shortlists competing in a number of categories, including Best Animated Feature, Best Visual Effects, Best Documentary, and Best Original Score.
With the nominations announcement creeping ever closer at the start of next month, the Academy have now announced a seventy-five-long list of songs that are eligible in the Best Original Song category.
Tom Hooper’s highly anticipated Les Misérables is also in the running with Suddenly, composed specifically for the film, and it should be great to see how it’s received both by audiences and the Academy in the coming weeks.
We’ve got plenty of choices from animated films in the mix – the animated ones are often the strongest »
