Book Club

May 18, 2018
As I consider the book club I am about to join for the summer, I am certain we will not be reading 50 Shades of Grey, unlike the main characters from the newly released film Book Club. The youngest of this crew are Mary Steenburgen (Carol) and Don Johnson (Arthur), both in their upper 60s; everyone [...]

Love the Coopers

November 13, 2015
"Love the Coopers" is a movie that does solve a lot of the characters' problems by the conclusion but, boy, do they have problems! Sam and Charlotte (John Goodman and Diane Keaton) have been married for years and have never taken the trip to Africa that Sam wants to take, mainly due to raising a [...]

And So It Goes

July 25, 2014
"And So It Goes" could be the title of where the movie stands as far as receiving our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. This movie is funny and engaging at times, but falls short in the content arena, and "so it goes" that it doesn't receive our Seal. Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are genuinely funny [...]

The Big Wedding

April 26, 2013
The Big Wedding is the story of a dysfunctional, blended family that is trying to reconcile and forgive one another for past indiscretions, and there are many! This is a comedy which is supposed to add a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. This "medicine" however is debauchery, nudity, [...]

Morning Glory

November 10, 2010
One of the strengths of this picture is the acting. Rachel McAdams plays Becky Fuller, TV producer, as a flighty and lonely-for-love girl with a tough side when necessary and she pulls it off. She even stands up to Harrison Ford's character, a legendary TV anchorman named Mike Pomeroy, so [...]

Mad Money

January 18, 2008
When you put Diane Keaton in a movie along with Queen Latifah, you are going to get some laughs. Ted Danson and Katie Holmes have their moments too. Although very funny at times, "Mad Money" misses the mark in the sex and language categories, and unfortunately the partners in crime show no remorse [...]

Because I Said So

February 2, 2007
Diane Keaton has some genuinely funny moments in this film. She plays her role to perfection as the over-protective and interfering mom with a big heart. The film is pretty well directed and the story of the mother trying to find a prospective husband for her daughter, so she doesn't end up like [...]

The Family Stone

December 16, 2005
"The Family Stone" is a tale about a dysfunctional family who all get together during Christmas and during the course of events find out about an upcoming tragedy. While I found the film slow at times, it did pick up toward the end. Unfortunately, the movie was rather transparent at times. Rife [...]

Somethings Gotta Give

December 12, 2003
Nicholson can steal a scene with a simple eye movement, and he often does in this film, much to the audience’s delight. It is unfortunate that this movie takes the “low road” and resorts to using strong language, brief nudity and sexual content in order to build the plot. Something’s Gotta [...]
