Yogi Bear (3D/2D) (2010) Yogi Bear was never one of my Saturday morning cartoons.  However, it does seem to have a big fan base.  That base was not big enough for it to be one of the first cartoon-film adaptations, but nevertheless it has finally come to the big screen.  Or rather, should I say that the film has come to the small screen. “Yogi Bear” lacks any of the ingenious that one would think of when it comes to a multi-million dollar box office creation.  Instead, this film seems more like it was meant for direct-to-video status.  The plot is all too formulaic and there isn’t anything individually or altogether that really screams motion picture.  This is an 80-minute adaptation of a 30-minute TV spot. The film is riddled with lengthy segments that could have easily been excised.  However, the filmmakers somehow had to get ...

Due Date (2010) “Due Date” fits perfectly into the common critic line, “you’ll either love it or hate.”  Unfortunately, for me it is the latter.  I found “Due Date” to be contrived, tasteless and excruciatingly not funny.  Now, just to make it clear, I actually watched this film twice just to make sure that I wasn’t in a bad mood or something.  Bad move.  I loathed it more the second time. The basis for the film is a road trip from hell.  To complete opposite type personality strangers are “forced” to drive from Atlanta to Los Angeles in a rental car.  First, there is no build up in the opening.  Poof, and all of a sudden, by random our two main actors get into a meaningless conflict on an airplane and are de-boarded and placed on a “no-fly list.”  Seriously, you take someone off ...

Wild Target (2010) If you are looking for a straight-laced, high-tech, perfectly constructed crime caper, well, this isn’t it.  However, if you are looking for a witty, British comedy, then “Wild Target” may just foot the bill. The film was a bust in its limited US theatrical run, scrapping in under $200,000.  It faired better in the UK, but it never approached the estimated $8 million creation budget.  Likely, reviews of its theatrical release scared off potential moviegoers.  However, now that it is on home video it is easy to pick up and give a shot, pun intended. Bill Nighy stars as Victor Maynard, an assassin for hire that is more comic than professional.  From the opening hits you can see that this is not an uptight hitman film, but rather a simple hit gone wrong with a comedic twist affair. Victor is nearing 55 years ...

It's Kind Of A Funny Story (2010) When “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story” arrived, I had to do some hard thinking as to when I originally heard of this film.  I seemingly recalled seeing some commercial trailers for its theatrical release, but that is about it.  And that is too bad, as moviegoers must not have felt the need to spread the word about this film.  After a thorough watch, it is easy to see how many may frown upon this film. First, let us leave aside all the nuances and factual errors when it comes to having a film full of mental patients.  It is usually hard in these situations not to upset someone out there who studies that particular area. Keir Gilchrist, probably best known for his work in “United States Of Tara,” portrays Craig Gilner, a 16 year-old with mental issues causing him to contemplate ...

Meet The Parents (2000) Few of us have forgotten our initial viewing “Meet The Parents.”  It was a comic relief that was truly necessary at the time.  The film held on to the top box office spot for its first month of release, beating out “Remember The Titans” and “Get Carter.”  It wasn’t until “Charlie’s Angels” came along that “Meet The Parents” fell form the leader board, but still managed to stay ahead of “The Legend Of Bagger Vance.” While it is hard for comedies to bring new elements to the table, and it is not to say that “Meet The parents” did that, but somehow the family dynamics worked for the audience.  Ben Stiller stars as Greg Focker, a male nurse that has fallen in love with an elementary school teacher, Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo).  When Greg tries to propose he is interrupted by ...
