    Aw.Hate to see Tinker Bell go, but good for Rose I guess.

    The headline could have caused some confusion:

    Rose McIver‘s not in Neverland anymore.

    Although it might not have been a goo movie in the sense of sophistication, I really enjoyed it. I dig that there is going to be a second one and even more so with Tink in it.

  4. Your Lover says:

    So they fired/let go Dan Marino and Sharpe!?!

    That’s messed up.
