Hangover, The (Unrated) (2009) “The Hangover” should really be called “Dude, Where’s My Car? Part 2,” or perhaps “Dude, Where’s the Groom.”  The story is nearly the same and the execution is just as bad.  That is my opinion.  However, I can easily see this being a hit or miss comedy.  It probably is a huge hit with the college dorm crowd and the immature adults out there.  However, anyone that is hoping for some type of substance will surely stay clear of this film. There is no other way to explain this film other than predictable and dull.  Comedies need to move at a quicker pace.  “The Hangover” contains prolonged, dull scenes.  Despite being a comedy of sorts I found myself nodding off during some sequences because they were pedestrian and slow. Another issue with “The Hangover” is that you know how it is going ...

Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws (2009) “Santa Buddies” is the latest in Disney’s line of Buddies movies.  It all began with “Air Bud,” a golden retriever with special abilities.  Disney spun the film into a franchise, creating four spin-offs.  “Air Buddies,” “Snow Buddies” and “Space Buddies” are the first three sequels.  The latest sequel is “Santa Buddies.”  Despite the sinking franchise, Disney keeps turning out these silly films.  Perhaps kids are attracted to them, but the films hold no substance. “Santa Buddies” is an attempt at bringing Christmas spirit to the home.  Unfortunately, the film fails to be deep in any aspect.  The only thing that this film has going for it is some cute puppies running around (when not digitally manipulated). Basically, Santa has a partner, Santa Paws, who looks after all the good and bad puppies in the world.  Santa Paws’ son is Puppy Paws, and ...

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) "Home Alone" gets a bad rap and many people simply cringe at its first sequel, "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."  That said, both films have found a place in the cinema world.  Disregarding the floundering third and fourth sequels, this first sequel is not that bad.  In the end, yes, it uses the same pattern of the first film, but it sort of works for this type of film. While the torture that this kid puts the villains through is simply horrific, there is also something funny about getting hit in the face four times with flying bricks or falling three stories through a whole in the floor.  It is sadistic to find humor in it, but alas I can't help but laugh when I see it, especially after such a long time since I first saw the film. In ...

Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) Many filmgoers were lured into this film by all the hype.  And many ended up being impressed by all the visual effects.  However, the fact remains, that the film is travesty of the entertainment industry.  It completely destroys one of the most beloved Christmas classics of our time.  The 1966 animated classic by Chuck Jones is a heart-warming tale.  This remake by Ron Howard is nothing but a boat of visual effects.  It loses everything that Seuss and Jones envisioned. The film is full of one-liners and silly plots.  The original animated cartoon was less than one half of an hour in length.  So how do you turn the story of the Grinch into a 90-minute feature?  Well, you stretch it will nonsense plots.  Honestly, whose idea was it to introduce a love triangle between the Grinch, Martha May and the ...

Year One (Theatrical & Unrated Edition) (2009) “Year One” had one of the most hilarious trailers of the summer.  It should real promise as a comedy.  However, come opening weekend the film did not fair so well.  The film only survived in theaters for a little over one month due to its sales figures and competition.  The movie opened with about 20 million dollars in revenue but topped out at about 40 million.  Word of mouth was not the advocate of this film. From the moment I first saw the trailer, the movie looked a lot like Mel Brooks’ “History of the World.”  The trailer did not reveal much in the way of plot for the film, and that is the downfall of the movie itself.  The film relies on bits and pieces of religious mythology as its basis.  Unfortunately, this is not enough to sustain interest in ...
