Friendship, food explored in new book

But the pals found at least two constants among the chaos: their friendship and food. Now in their early 30s, the two recount how they navigated their lives, loves and careers in the years after college, in a new book named after their blog.

Movie review: 'The Shallows,' bloody ocean thriller will terrify teens

Parents need to know that "The Shallows" is a tense, bloody, jump-out-of-your-seat thriller starring Blake Lively as a young med school dropout who goes surfing at a secluded beach. After being chomped on by a shark, she must figure out how to survive and get to safety. Many scenes could scare the pants off of kids (and adults), including a shark jumping out of the water with its jaws open (then chomping down on a surfer) and a man crawling onto the beach with half his body chewed off. It's very exciting, but it's not for the faint of heart. That said, Nancy is a strong, determined woman who never loses her cool, though she does swear a few times (including "f--k" and "s--t"). Bottom line? "The Shallows" is both terrifying and entertaining, but it's not for young kids or anyone afraid of the water or blood. If you couldn't handle "Jaws," skip this one, too.
