Admission

"Admission" centers around the college admission procedures at the prestigious Princeton University. This romantic comedy was moving at times and funny at times, but the story was slow most of the time. While Tina Fey and Paul Rudd play their parts extremely well, the film suffers from the [...]

Little Fockers

Once again the Focker family and Byrnes family come together to bring their hilarious antics to the screen. This film is geared towards an adult audience with their sexual openness and innuendos. It does have some funny moments. But this is not a family film. Their discussions regarding sexual [...]

Cirque du Freak: The Vampires Assistant

This movie probably has more fighting in it than dialog, which says something about how well the dialog is written. It is not as funny as some would hope, relying instead on the biting, punching, stabbing, and physical moments, some which are played for laughs but some of which could quite possibly [...]

American Dreamz – Filtered

October 17, 2006
"American Dreamz" is a movie that closely resembles the popular television show American Idol. The idea behind the story is good, but there is quite a bit of extra junk that ends up taking away from what could have been an OK family film. One storyline in the movie is an Arab man who is sent on a [...]

American Dreamz

Films and television have long satirized presidents and politics. "Saturday Night Live" has done it regularly for years. And that is exactly what "American Dreamz" is all about. Dennis Quaid plays the president, and his similarities to President Bush are too close to home to be denied. The film [...]

In Good Company – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie was really interesting. It struck me as a movie with a lesson. The main character, Dan, is really a wholesome man. He was the head of his division at work and with every contact he made he treated everyone with the utmost respect and decency. No scams—just make the customer want to [...]

In Good Company

This is an interesting story about a young man, Carter Duryea, who is climbing the corporate ladder very fast. But at what expense? He loses his wife and takes on the responsibility of heading up the ad department at Sports America. He replaces Dan Foreman, the 51-year old "dinosaur" ad executive. [...]

About a Boy

January 14, 2003
The story’s portrayal of the joy found in friends, family and responsibility is tragically marred by considerable obscene and profane language, as well as much sexually suggestive humor and dialogue. Although Will’s promiscuous lifestyle is portrayed humorously, it’s eventually shown to be [...]

Down To Earth

THE GOOD:...Honestly, the soundtrack is the best part of this movie. There are a few funny jokes and one liners from Rock, along with a couple of awkward scenes of him trying to be romantic. But they are so few, bad and far between, it ends up being anything BUT as funny and entertaining as [...]
