Sex Drive (Unrated and Cream-filled) With all due respect to Harry Knowles who wrote, "This isn't an imitator, it is, in fact, the real deal, a hilarious, original sex comedy that you really, must seek out," this film is in fact not.  "Sex Drive" is the next evolution of "American Pie" and "Road Trip."  There is nothing original about this film.  Nonetheless, "Sex Drive" does offer some comic relief to the masses. The story is the familiar, boy tries to get laid, boy realizes he loves girl friend, but girl friend loves boy's best friend, but then realizes she loves boy.  Both are afraid that it will ruin their friendship.  Yawn.  The only thing that makes this movie interesting to watch are the situations the actors get themselves into and their resolutions. Ian (Josh Zuckerman) is a typical hopeless romantic high school student, perhaps post-high school.  That ...

Pink Panther, The (Collector's Edition) (1963) I'll say this much up front: I'm not a big fan of slapstick comedy.  Sure, I get a good chuckle out of Lucy and Ethel in the chocolate factory, Will Ferrell and buddies rumbling with rival anchormen, and even Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern getting plunked on their noggins by swinging paint cans.  But it's not a genre I actively seek out.  I much prefer the champagne and caviar variety of screen comedy – witty repartee, double entendres, and obtuse references – to the beer and pretzels feel of slapstick.  Yet like a good beer (and those yummy Dutch pretzels), I can appreciate good slapstick, but it doesn't tickle my funny bone in the same way as a zingy one-liner. I secretly hoped, however, that Blake Edwards' original version of 'The Pink Panther' might finally make me feel all warm and ...

Napoleon Dynamite (2004) “Napoleon Dynamite” is another terrific comedy film from 20th Century Fox.  Like “Office Space” it is a low-budget film that proves that you don’t need big names or budgets to create a truly magnificent comedy.  Like so many other films, it really only has a cult following.  I am always shocked at how many people have never heard of the film.  Well, there is no time like the present and a Blu-ray release to learn about it. “Napoleon Dynamite” is a simple film that doesn’t have much in the way of plot or story, but it delivers plenty of independent laughs.  The film remained in theaters for about eight months, which is rather incredible.  For a film that only cost about $500,000 to make, it made about $44.5 million at the box office.  Not too shabby. This film is Jon Heder’s break ...

Office Space (1999) “Office Space” will go down in history as one of the best stupid comedies of all-time.  The film certainly has flair (pun intended).  The film is full of witty lines, superb silly acting and a story that is not original, but pulled off as original.  It would be getting a full five stars from me if it just had a little more body to it. The film goes to the top of comedy without going over, which is pretty rare for comedy films nowadays.  Mike Judge, from the “Beavis and Butt-Head” fame, writers and directs this film.  It is disappointing that he hasn’t done anything truly major since this film given the following for both “Office Space” and “Beavis and Butt-Head.”  In addition to his writing and directing credits, Judge is often the voice in animated shows and films.  He is ...

Election (1999) “Election” is perhaps one of the most disturbing comedies I have seen in my life.  The way in which it is marketed, audiences usually hear the name and think, “aw, a nice and light Reese Witherspoon comedy.”  Wrong.  The plot and characters are devious, sometimes making your stomach churn.  Don’t get me wrong, this film is one of the best at the turn of the millennium. The film only grossed about $15 million in the US at the box office, making it an undiscovered gem for most viewers out there.  Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick turn out stellar performances.   Writer/Director Alexander Payne, does a terrific job bringing the story to the screen and demanding the most out of his cast. “Election” follows Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon), a high-school student with a hidden agenda behind every action, and Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick), a ...
