The Lincoln Lawyer

This is a mystery/suspense story that is better than some I have reviewed. Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is an attorney who always charges the highest prices he can because, as he tells one client, "I don't work for nothing". He works almost all the time except for brief evenings or weekends [...]

Factotum

Based on an autobiographical novel by Charles Bukowski, "Factotum" chronicles the daily life of an aspiring writer, Henry Chinaski, whose alcoholism prevents him from holding down a [...]

Alfie

March 15, 2005
I don't really know where to start in reviewing this film. The entire premise is about a womanizing man who tries to have sex with any girl he can. He has no regard for them really, he just wants to satisfy his lust-filled needs. It is depressing to watch as Alfie goes from one woman to the next, [...]

My Cousin Vinny – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

The edited version of My Cousin Vinny is a delight to watch. The chemistry between Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei is incredible. I love the way they talk to each other. Also the Judge played by Fred Gwynne is priceless as he forces Pesci to conform to the procedures and dress code of his court. The [...]

Anger Management

"Anger Management" may not win critical acclaim, but the nonsensical antics, including a hilarious duet of “I Feel Pretty” sung by Dave and Buddy, may make this a winner at the box office. Most of the comedy focuses on crude bathroom humor, bodily functions, sexual insecurities and references [...]

Happy Accidents

December 17, 2002
The good: This is one of the most unique and charming love stories I’ve seen in a long time. The witty and humorous dialogue is fresh, realistic and captures the angst and dilemmas singles go through in finding the love of their lives. Tomei and D’Onofrio are brilliant, giving us Oscar worthy [...]
