Observe and Report (2009) "Observe and Report" came and went without drawing much attention.  It feels like one of those independent films that was made into a motion picture and released in theaters.  The film just about broke even with the budget, but still managed to stay in theaters for two solid months.  I guess they were hoping for a late draw. The film is weird to say in the least.  I could tell from the get go that it is not going to be a film that everyone loves.  It only has a hold on a very specific group of viewers.  Put is this way, if you liked "Hot Fuzz" then you are going to like this film.  In fact, "Observe and Report" is very much like an Americanized version of "Hot Fuzz." Seth Rogen, best known for his roles in Judd Apatow productions, stars ...

Girl Next Door, The (2004) When "The Girl Next Door" was released in 2004 it became an instant dorm room hit with college kids.  It was all about Elisha Cuthbert at the time.  I can't say that I disagree.  However, the film has a solid and fun basis.  It only really suffers from the "been there, seen that" syndrome that haunts many teenage comedies. This film has a clear three-act structure.  The first 30 minutes of the film is the first act, followed by 30 or so minutes of the second act in which everything goes wrong for our hero and finally the last 30 minutes in which our hero tries to make it all good again.  Without a doubt, the best act is the first one.  The first 30 minutes of the film are very well done.  All the characters get good introductions and the ...

Go (1999) "Go" has become something of a cult hit for Sony Pictures.  It was a low budget film, costing about $6.5 million to make.  It was able to gross over $16 million at the box office, but it is video sales that show the film's popularity.  While, this film is supposed to be in my generation, I don't connect with it, nor have a desire to do so. "Go" is something of a cross between "Can't Hardly Wait," "Vantage Point" and other teen films.  The cast is all well known, but the movie is made in such as way that you feel like this film is the first for all of them and that they went on to bigger and better things.  The cast consists of: Katie Holmes, Jay Mohr, Scott Wolf, Sarah Polley, Timothy Olyphant, William Fichtner, Taye Diggs, Breckin Meyer, ...

Waterboy, The (1998) "The Waterboy" is one of Adam Sandler's many comedy triumphs.  The film is usually not the favorite of the bunch for Sandler fans, but it certainly stands tall in the middle.  The film offers some southern-style comedy and several cameos by Sandler's fellow comedic pals.  "The Waterboy" grossed a whopping $160 million at the box office, resulting in a tidy profit considering the film cost about $23 million to make. In "The Waterboy," Sandler stars as Bobby Boucher, a southern boy that isn't the brightest bulb in the pack.  He lives at home with his mother (Kathy Bates).  At 30 plus years old, Boucher works as the waterboy boy for a Louisiana University.  The football players constantly pick on Bobby.  When the players start a fight, with the waterboy crammed in the middle, the coach blames it on Boucher and fires ...

This is Spinal Tap (1984) I don't know what is with people and this movie.  It must be a nostalgic item, because it just doesn't make the grade.  I am a sound engineer and a lover of the rock genre, and this movie is nothing more than a poor attempt at a rockumentary.  There is just no appeal with this film.  I found myself constantly looking to see how much runtime was left.  Thank goodness the film is only 80 minutes long. The film isn't without a few laughs, but they are few and far between.  The only one that I can completely laugh at time and time again is "This one goes to 11."  By far it is the funniest scene.  The stuck pod and Stonehenge sequences are also quite funny.  My problem with the film is that it doesn't go anywhere.  There is really ...
