This movie is a funny and rollicking good time! The family will enjoy this witty and action-packed movie. I wish Jackie Chan (the spy in the film) lived next door to me. He is the main source of fun in the film. Chan plays Bob Ho. His girlfriend Gillian (Amber Valletta) thinks he is a serious man [...]

Inspector Clouseau is back (Steve Martin) in his second turn in a "Pink Panther" movie. The film definitely has its moments of humor, most of them as a result of the bumbling inspector. When some new members (known as the Dream Team) join his force to find the criminal known as Tornado, they want [...]

This film is hilarious in spots, with Steve Martin's bumbling Inspector Clouseau revealing how inept he can be at one moment, and yet brilliant in other moments. The audience I viewed the film with roared at times as the inspector made note of such things as a murder victim "falling perfectly [...]

"Rebound" is a great family movie. As most of the stars are kids, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the acting was well done and the story was actually interesting. Martin Lawrence is fantastic as a big shot basketball coach turned middle school mentor (not to mention he’s hilarious). The [...]

I am not a big fan at all of Chris Kattan. I didn't care for him in "Saturday Night Live" and I thought I wouldn't care for him in this film. I found that his performance was not over-the-top like most of his TV characters and overall was not that bad. Since the language and sexual references were [...]

The only way to see a movie like this is with a theater full of kids. Aside from the fact that they are the target audience for this movie anyway, it helps to be reminded that as an adult who has to sit by and watch as childlike Arquette maneuvers through scene after scene of Buster Keaton style [...]

Joe Dirt

THE GOOD:...No matter how bad the script (and this one is pretty bad) Spade still has a few classic moments of comedic brilliance, my favorite being when he goes into a litany naming various types of fireworks. THE NOT-SO-GOOD:...Basically this movie is full of gross-out comedy. I find it [...]
