Leap Year (2010) It simply astounds me how some movies get the green light.  This film fails on every level of filmmaking.  It is a poor script to start with.  The filmmakers didn't know what to do with the script.  The actors channeled the most stereotypical romantic comedy spirits.  The biggest problem with the film is that it never had any potential from the moment that the first word was put on paper. Romantic comedies are always the same, but "Leap Year" is the worst of the worst.  The story fails to grab the audience.  Any resemblance of a plot is poorly acted.  The "story" contains no subplots.  There is no motivation for any sequence.  There is nothing else to say about this film.  It holds no entertainment value.  Those that love romantic comedies will most certainly find this film long, boorish and useless. Compared ...

It's Complicated (2009) Here we go again.  "It's Complicated" not much more than a completely predictable, overused plot film.  I realize that it is next to impossible to come up with an original romantic comedy, but a little ingenuity would be very much appreciated.  The film received much publicity over the caliber of its cast members.  This turned out to be nothing more than a publicity ploy. The stars of the film have had tremendous careers, but the performances in this film are not of professional quality.  Steve Martin is normally a riot, but he doesn't even cause the crack of one smile throughout the film.  Alec Baldwin delivers the best performance, not straying far from his character on "30 Rock."  Meryl Streep is ultimately forgettable.  I'm sorry, but this film is not "memorably hilarious."  More like "memorably forgettable." When it comes to the plot, ...

Couples Retreat (2009) Will Vince Vaughn films ever cease?  I may be prejudicial, but going into this film I knew how it was going to turn out.  Vaughn is so annoying that is makes every one of the movies that he is in the same.  As evidence of his self absorbed behavior, he is the only one to get his name before the movie title in the opening credits, even with the more talented and popular cast members that are in the film.  One cannot separate Vaughn's demeanor in one film from another.  His acting, if you can call it that is extremely sub par. The same goes for the rest of the cast of "Couple Retreat."  Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, Jason Bateman, et al, deliver underwhelming performances.  We are left watching eight characters on screen that we could care less about and present ...

Serious Moonlight (2009) "Serious Moonlight" is a serious tragedy.  While, Magnolia delves into the depths of independent filmmaking to find up and coming directors, something went terribly wrong with this one.  While this is not an independent feature is sure feels like one.  Despite its all-star cast and hilarious director, the film flops big time. Throughout watching this film there is a sense of déjà vu.  At the same time you know that you haven't seen this film before.  And that is what this film is all about – mixed emotions.  I had hopes for this film given that Meg Ryan and Tim Hutton are the primary stars.  However, the film doesn't go anywhere.  The journey dredges on slowly and then jumps to the end like the filmmakers got tired of their pet project. I adore Meg Ryan and never thought a film of hers ...

Invention of Lying, The (2009) Ricky Gervais is one of the greats among our time.  However, unlike "Ghost Town," "The Invention of Lying" is not as good as it could have been.  Both critics and viewers have expressed their reservations for this film, and mainly I have to agree. "The Invention of Lying" should really have been entitled, "The Invention of Storytelling."  There is a fine line between the two, but this film falls on the side of stories.  The film takes place in a world in which the notion and the ability of lying is unknown. Everyone's life is miserable because they only speak what is on their minds.  Just because lying doesn't exist doesn't mean that everyone must say what is on their mind.  Lying can only exist if you are asked a question. Ricky Gervais is a screenwriter, and I use that term loosely.  In ...
