Movie 43

COMEDY. EXPOSED.  It’s unbelievable that so many talents would be willing to work on and off on this collection of raunchy sketches for ten years and come up with so little. The title has nothing to do with the movie itself and there doesn’t seem to be much of a theme, even though Peter Farrelly’s … Continue reading Movie 43

Ice Age: Continental Drift

When the continent breaks apart, Manny and his family and friends are separated; the quest to reunite is fraught with dangers. Much like the third movie, this fourth chapter is in 3D and was a huge hit… but the seams are beginning to show. A sense of fatigue is creeping into the increasingly outlandish adventures … Continue reading Ice Age: Continental Drift

American Reunion

Save the best piece for last. 13 years after graduating high school, Jim (Jason Biggs) and his friends are all headed back to Michigan for a reunion that promises to spiral out of control as soon as Stifler (Seann William Scott) shows up. The Harold & Kumar directors bring back the American Pie franchise with a fourth movie and almost … Continue reading American Reunion

Role Models

THEY’RE ABOUT TO GET MORE THAN THEY PLEA-BARGAINED FOR. Wheeler and Danny (Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd) are sentenced to community service and join a network of big brothers; their chosen protégés pose very different challenges.

Southland Tales

THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS.  In the near future, America has turned into a police state and a German company offers an energy solution that has unimaginable consequences. The Donnie Darko director delivered a long-winded, confusing snorefest with overly ambitious ideas coupled with too much silliness that was widely derided by critics. A … Continue reading Southland Tales

Mr. Woodcock

LETTING GO OF YOUR PAST IS HARD… ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S DATING YOUR MOM.  Best-selling writer John Farley (Seann William Scott) is horrified to learn that his mother (Susan Sarandon) is now dating the man who turned his childhood into a nightmare – gym teacher Jasper Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton). From the director who made Lars … Continue reading Mr. Woodcock

American Pie

There’s something about your first piece. It’s easy to understand if anyone over the age of 16 feels this box office hit is too silly to watch; after all, Porky’s shouldn’t be regarded as a masterpiece by any filmmaker. It isn’t that simple though. This movie has better actors, funnier jokes and there is sweetness and a … Continue reading American Pie

Ice Age: The Meltdown

THE CHILL IS GONE. Manny, Sid and Diego realize that the ice age is about to end and set out to save themselves from drowning. Carlos Saldanha, who worked on the first film, stepped up to direct a sequel that is pretty good in the genre of second-rate CGI comedies. There is flow in the animation that makes … Continue reading Ice Age: The Meltdown

American Wedding

This time they’re going all the way. And so we have reached the end of the series that consistently showed how easy it is to end up in embarrassing situations when you’re young, horny and curious. The central romance of this trilogy is taken to a higher level, as Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson … Continue reading American Wedding
