The Break-Up

June 2, 2006
Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston create wonderfully believable performances in "The Break-Up". They make you laugh and they make you sad because of the situations they build from not really listening to each other. This film has moments that I believe everyone can relate to when thinking about [...]

Wedding Crashers

July 15, 2005
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson’s antics can elicit laughter in any movie by themselves. When they are put together, there is a guarantee for some gut wrenching scenes. There were times in this film that their body language alone was humorous. Even though the premise of this film was original, I [...]

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

June 10, 2005
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" reminds me a lot of the 1985 film "Prizzi's Honor" starring Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner. It's the same M.O. but with a few different twists and updating. The tagline for "Prizzi's Honor is "Hired killers by day. Devoted lovers by night. Until they found their next [...]

Be Cool

Dodgeball is a funny movie with clever dialog, but much of the humor is crude and in bad taste. Much of the humor [...]

Starsky and Hutch

March 5, 2004
Action scenes include wild car chases, explosions, shootings and a few fisticuffs, but there’s no gore, although a drug lord shoots a gang member point blank. The film’s greatest crime is its attempt to portray as comical things that aren’t funny: a young boy throwing kitchen knives at police [...]

"Zoolander" is coming out at a time when we as a nation are readjusting our priorities. Today, decadent obsessions like fashions, frills and other self-absorbing activities are considered trivial and meaningless when compared with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In light of the recent [...]


August 18, 2000
To a reviewer’s consternation, there are some readers who, out of a prurient interest, will see the very movie the reporter has just ripped apart for its graphic vileness. The negative review seems to entice them. “Could it really be that bad?” they wonder. I wish that I could dissuade those [...]
