Billy Madison (1995) It is hard to argue that Adam Sandler has had a tremendous career.  Not everyone is a fan of the man, and likely for good reason.  However, Sandler has permeated television, music and film.  After a success on Saturday Night Live, Sandler landed his first feature role in “Billy Madison.” The film, also written by the star, has received mixed reviews from critics and fans.  Taking the film for what it is it is quite successful, however flawed it may be.  The film was not successful when measured in a monetary form.  It earned a paltry amount at the box office.  However, this is likely due to the fact that the world was not ready for Sandler yet.  Had Sandler gained more popularity in pop culture “Billy Madison” would likely have been more successful, like “Happy Gilmore.” The film has done well ...

Gnomeo & Juliet (3D/2D) (2011) Gnomeo, Gnomeo, where for art thou Gnomeo?  “Gnomeo & Juliet” is the loosely based on the classic Shakespeare tragedy of the similar title.  Obviously, being a family film it cannot end in tragedy, or can it?  The answer I believe is obvious, but I will leave it to you to find out. The film centers on two households, the Blue and the Red.  But instead of humans we have garden gnomes.  We are introduced to the homeowners as feuding neighbors and that feud carries to their respective gnomes.  When the humans are away it is time for the gnomes to play. The names of all the gnomes is too much to recall, but on the Blue side we have Gnomeo and his mother, along with Gnomeo’s pal Benny and dog-acting mushroom gnome.  On the Red side we have Juliet and her father, ...

Some Like It Hot (1959) “Some Like It Hot” is just that…Hot.  This is the first Marilyn Monroe film that I ever saw and she leaves quite the impression.  This film is fun and energetic from beginning to end.  There is never a dull moment. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon star as Joe and Jerry, a saxophonist and bassist in prohibition 1929.  When they become witnesses to the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago, they have to figure out the quickest way out of town.  The film starts out as a serious mobster film and quickly takes a turn for the comical.  Joe and Jerry pose as women, Josephine and Daphne in order to join an all girls band that is head for Florida.  Curtis and Lemmon dressed as women is hysterical in its own right, but their interactions with others as women just adds icing ...

Misfits, The (1961) I fear that “The Misfits” is really known for all the troubles on and off set rather than its greatness as a film.  Personally, I found the film does not hold up well over time and that the acting has taken on a bit of what nowadays we would call “over-acting.” “The Misfits” is probably best known for the fact that it is the last film completed by Marilyn Monroe and the last film ever by Clark Gable, who died shortly after filming finished.  Monroe’s death occurred roughly two years after the completion of the film, but with her health on the decline even during the production of “The Misfits.” For me, the film keeps women at bay, always trying to keep her in her “place,” which is apparently as a house servant.  There are numerous underlying thematic elements in this film, ...

I Am Number Four (2011) "I Am Number Four" is D.J. Caruso's latest sci-fi/action/suspense/thriller.  With Caruso's career his products have been hit or miss.  "Disturbia" was a pleasant surprise.  Though the plot was fairly predictable, especially given that it was based on Hitchcock's "Rear Window."  Then "Taking Lives" fell flat.  "Eagle Eye" was more of a mixed bag, remarked as brilliant by some and horrible by others. "I Am Number Four" lands more in league with "Eagle Eye."  Teenagers will likely find the film to be exciting.  However, the film does fall prey to incredibly slow first and second acts.  Every time it seems as if the action is going to break out on screen the reigns are pulled in and the scene falls flat on its face.  This continues until the climatic battle in the final 20 minutes or so, when it appears that producer ...
