Dear Y'all,

OK—the Big Weekend is FINALLY here: SECRETARIAT opens nationwide! This incredibly uplifting movie is directed by RANDALL WALLACE—who is well known and loved by the Queendom as our very own KILTBOY—if you’ve been to the Parade, you’ve met him and fallen hopelessly in love. And if you haven’t been here yet, you can come this year, and trust me, you WILL fall in love with him! (Did I mention he’s single?)

It’s very important that we all GO TO SEE THE MOVIE THIS WEEKEND—on account of opening numbers are Very Important to Studio People.

Everybody will love this movie—EVERY-BODY—young, old, male, female, uncommitted—I promise you, it’s 100% FEEL-GOOD—and there are no life-scarring “Bambi” moments in it for the youngsters (or the oldsters, for that matter!)—so get on out there this weekend!

You will also love seeing SON OF KILTBOY, our own beloved karaoke songster, ANDREW WALLACE—actually appearing in the film, wearing a very glamorous white dinner jacket and a VERY LARGE moustache! And, of COURSE, he’s SINGING! Yay Andrew!

OTTO THORWARTH, a darlin’ jockey from the hometown of TCBITW—Hot Springs, AR—totally steals the show as Ronnie Turcotte, Secretariat’s jockey—and the race scenes are heart-stopping and yes, Otto REALLY IS RIDING THE HORSE.

The baby horse you’ll see is truly a descendant of Secretariat! 

John Malkovich is HILARIOUS and Diane Lane is BRILLIANT.

Stay for the credits to hear AJ Michalka singing “IT’S WHO YOU ARE”—the song that made me totally lose it at the Bathrobe Brunch this year.

And watch for the credit to THE CIRLOT AGENCY right here in Jackson—Lynda Lesley (SPQ™ SECURITY) found the verse from Job used in the film!

There are just sooo many Queenly Connections to this movie—and if you don’t feel like a million bucks after seeing it, I’m seriously worried about you! CLICK HERE TO WATCH A FEATURETTE!!
