Rocker, The (Born to Rock Edition) There is no better way to describe this movie than how the press release for the film explains it.  “’School of Rock’ meets ‘Spinal Tap.’”  The only problem is that I doubt this film will become a classic comedy spoof like “Spinal Tap.”  The film has received mediocre reviews from critics and audiences alike.  When it was released in theaters back in August of 2008, the film did astonishingly poor in box office sales.  It’s final gross was only $6.5 million.  Honestly, I think the film deserved more than that considering what truly horrible films are bringing in at the box-office. Rainn Wilson, one of the comic geniuses of America’s version of “The Office,” stars as Robert Fishman, aka “The Fish.”  20 years ago he was the founder and soul drummer behind the emerging heavy metal band, “Vesuvius.”  However, just as ...

Tommy Boy (Holy Schnike Edition) In 1995, Chris Farley brought tears to our eyes from laughing so hard.  "Tommy Boy" was he finest work.  The loss of Farley is devastating to the comedic community.  The film only grossed about $33 million in the United States during its theatrical run.  However, it has done very well on home video and has become a classic for many film lovers.  There is rarely a movie like this that leaves us with so many catch phrases and memorable quotes over a decade after its release. Chris Farley and David Spade have a great dynamic between them.  Chris Farley stars as Tommy Callahan III, a spoiled rich kid, the barely graduates from college after seven years.  Herbie Hancock.  His dad, also Thomas Callahan (Brian Dennehy), is the owner and operator of Callahan Auto Parts, the pride of Sandusky, Ohio.  David Spade ...

Mask, The "The Mask" was released in the summer of 1994 and grossed a healthy $118 million.  The film is fun, entertaining and full of laughs.  Once again, Jim Carrey stars as a funny guy that captures our imagination.  He pulled the hat trick in 1994, starring in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask" and "Dumb and Dumber."  "The Mask" is usually considered to be the second best of the three.  However, I find that it is equal to "Ace Ventura" and far superior to "Dumb and Dumber."  I am usually in the minority on this one, but I stand my ground. "The Mask" is entertaining and very inventive.  It is based on the comic book series created by Mike Richardson.  Basically, The Mask is a wooden faceplate, which is cursed with the essence of Loki, the Nordic night god – god of ...

Truman Show, The Jim Carrey is one of a rare breed.  He is comedian that captures your heart at the same time as making you laugh hysterically.  He was first noticed with his work on "In Living Color," but it was "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" in 1994 that brought him stardom.  Immediately thereafter, he starred in "The Mask," "Dumb and Dumber," "Batman Forever," the list goes on and on.  Each was full of laughs and that is what the audience came to expect from him.  However, in 1998 Carrey made a bold move and attempted something a little different. In "The Truman Show," Carrey shows a different side of himself, one that is much more inquisitive and full of depth.  The film is not absence from laughs caused by the actor.  However, they are not slapstick laughs like his plethora of other films.  "The ...

Old School (Unrated and Out of Control) 'Tis the season for comedies.  "Old School" is the latest comedy film to join the Blu-ray ranks.  While trying to pay homage to "Animal House," it succeeds in living up to the "Revenge of the Nerds" standard – which may or may not be a good thing.  Still, it is hard not to enjoy the film, once you get past Vince Vaughn. The film contains some powerful actors that deliver great performances (once again Vince Vaughn excluded).  Luke Wilson gets a starring role in this film as Mitch, The Godfather.  He is a real estate attorney that lives a pretty dull life, or so he thought.  After finding out that his girlfriend is a swinger, he moves out into his own place, on the edges of the local college campus.  Will Ferrell plays Frank "The Tank," a newlywed, while Vince Vaughn ...
