10 Things I Hate About You (10th Anniversary Edition) (1999) It is difficult to bring Shakespeare into the 21st century.  However, I must admit, when I first watched "10 Things I Hate About You" I thought it was an exactly rendition of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew."  Not only is it a story based on Shakespeare, it is also a remake of the 1967 film, "Taming of Shrew," which was the first attempt at turning Shakespeare's play into a modern film. "10 Things I Hate About You" doesn't reinvent the story, but simply reinvents the characters in modern day.  While the tie to Shakespeare will be lost on most kids, those who are old enough or studious enough will immediately recognize the tie, and not only because of the characters' names. In this modern film, Kat and Bianca are sisters that are at opposite ends of the high-school social hierarchy.  Bianca is ...

All About Steve (2009) Sandra Bullock has a habit of starring in romantic comedies.  Most of the time she succeeds in this endeavor.  However, when it comes to “All About Steve,” it is a flop all around.  I failed to see much entertainment value in this film.  I kept waiting for something more elaborate to present itself.  Unfortunately, that was not the case. “All About Steve” is about Mary (Bullock), a crossword puzzle creator for a Sacramento newspaper.  In the simplest terms she is a geek.  She runs at the mouth 24/7.  She has an extremely high I.Q., but fails to see why everyone steers clear of her.  She just can’t stop talking or spewing useless facts.  While I didn’t find it annoying from the start like the characters in the film, it does get old by the end of the film. Bradley Cooper stars as ...

Four Christmases (2008) I think we were all hoping that this was going to be the next great Christmas movie.  Unfortunately, the film is not.  In fact, it doesn’t come anywhere close to a “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” type quality film.  As a matter of fact it falls way below any expectations that may have been set for a holiday comedy. If you have visited any of my past reviews, you will know that I don’t have any tolerance for Vince Vaughn.  All his parts are exactly the same.  He is a one-dimensional actor that is so easy to hate in everything he appears in.  On the other hand, there is Reese Witherspoon that I simply adore in everything that she appears.  Unfortunately, the sorry excuse for a script leaves Reese with nothing to work with.  Aside from those two lead actors, there is ...

Answer Man, The (2009) “The Answer Man” is an official pick of the 2009 Sundance Festival.  For an independent film it is quite good.  However, it is filled out with a weak subplot and an annoying redundancy of emotions and actions. The film has great cast.  Unfortunately, it seems that the script tries the patience of the actors.  Jeff Daniels is Arlen Faber, the writer of “Me and God,” a book that changed spirituality and owns 10 percent of the God market.  No one knows who Arlen is.  He is a hermit that is tired of people coming to him for all the answers.  Apparently, the questions and answers in his book came from a direct conversation with God. Lauren Graham, formerly of the “Gilmore Girls,” stars as Elizabeth, a single mom that is trying to run a chiropractor shop.  By chance, Arlen throws his back ...

Love Actually (2003) “Love Actually” is a little known British romantic comedy.  This is about as good as it gets for modern romantic films.  There is something in this film for everyone.  It is truly the perfect holiday date movie. The film’s basis lies in the connections among strangers.  The story follows several British individuals that are seemingly all linked.  This is a film of joy, happiness and belief in loving mankind.  Aside from the intricate storylines, the film boasts a tremendously talented cast.  Some of the lead performers are Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney and Keira Knightley.  In addition to the leads, there are numerous cameo spots by actors such as Elisha Cuthbert, Denise Richards, and Shannon Elizabeth.  The list goes on and on. The film deals with finding love, maintaining love and repairing love among several ...
