It’s Friday and time to take a look at what’s new on Disney+ in Canada today, which includes some new original films and a brand new comedy series, “Beth & Life”.
Here’s the rundown:
Cheaper By The Dozen
The Disney+ Original movie “Cheaper by the Dozen,” is a fresh take on the 2003 hit family comedy starring Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff. This film is a funny and heartwarming story of the raucous exploits of a blended family of 12, the Bakers, as they navigate a hectic home life while simultaneously managing their family business.
Life & Beth
“Life & Beth” tells the story of Beth (Amy Schumer, “Trainwreck,” “I Feel Pretty”), a woman whose life would look pretty great on paper. Impressive to everyone she grew up with, she makes a good living as a wine distributor, she’s in a long-term relationship with a successful guy and lives in Manhattan. When a sudden incident forces Beth to engage with her past, her life changes forever. Through flashbacks to her teen self, Beth starts to learn how she became who she is and who she wants to become. We’ll go on her journey towards building a bigger, bolder and more authentic life, learning to express herself and living in an intentional way. A trip down memory lane is a strong source of trauma, comedy and moving forward.
