My Life in Ruins (2009) “My Life In Ruins” is another one of the few films that is set in Greece.  It has a simply story that doesn’t really take the audience on much of an adventure as one might hope.  I was hoping to see a bunch of wonderful ancient ruins, but alas the ruins are only secondary to a rather dull story. Georgia (Nia Vardalos)is a touring guide in Greece that is always slave to the worst group of tourists.  She longs to be a professor of ancient Greece, but is rejected by every university.  Her tours are very structure, fully of historical facts.  Her tour groups are bored out of their minds.  However, when a lonely widowed-man and a reserved bus driver interfere in her life, she begins to relax and open up.  She begins to tell interesting stories and start a romance ...

Wedding Singer, The (Totally Awesome Edition) (1998) There are few movies that capture audiences right from the start.  There are also few movies that contain captivating performances.  There are even fewer films that have both combined.  "The Wedding Singer" is one of those few films.  As silly as it may be it is a real showstopper.  This is perhaps Adam Sandler's best film of his career.  It is certainly the most universally liked of Sandler's films among various age groups. The film was released in 1998 and immediately took audiences back to the 1980s.  The music was certainly terrific.  Hearing all the pop songs of the era is truly nostalgic.  Seeing the hair-dos and clothes of the 80s is also very reminiscent.  In addition to the style of the film, the onscreen chemistry is wonderful. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler connect very well on screen.  It is no surprise ...

Away We Go (2009) "Away We Go" is a somber tale told in a funny way.  The film examines the depressing, and often zany lives of several couples and individuals.  The film comes across as surprisingly original, but drags on quite a bit for only a 90-minute film.  I was shocked how many times I looked at the counter trying to figure out when the film would be over. "Away We Go" is about the path to self-discovery and parenthood for Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph).  Burt and Verona are college dropouts that live a simple life.  Verona does artwork of the insides of dead bodies well Burt sells insurance for insurance for insurance.  When Verona gets an unplanned pregnancy, the couple starts to think about what their lives have become.  Burt is anxious to be a parent, while Verona is unsure of ...

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009) Okay, you are going to hate me for this, but I actually liked this movie.  Could it have been better?  Definitely.  But for what is was meant to be, "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" is a cute romantic comedy.  I am not the biggest fan of Matthew McConaughey, but he didn't bother me so much in this film.  I am always a sucker for Jennifer Garner.  The film also stars numerous bit players and uncredited members.  In the grand scheme, the film has entertaining values. Anyone that has seen the previews for this film knows that it is spin on "A Christmas Carol."  McConaughey's character, Connor Mead, replaces Ebenezer Scrooge.  The story goes from a tale about poverty to a tale about womanizing.  Connor Mead is the ultimate womanizer.  He has grown a heart of stone. As a kid Connor was best friends ...

Adventureland (2009) Teenage comedy films have been a staple of the film industry for the past few decades.  Ever since "American Pie," they have become raunchier and raunchier.  "Adventureland" is not a film that I would call raunchy, but it seems to want to go that route.  Luckily, it did not sink that low.  "Adventureland" was not a big hit at box offices, not by a long shot.  Still, the film has potential that is unfortunately left untapped. The film takes place in the 1980s.  However, it is not a very good period piece.  I spent much of the film debating what year it actually was.  The clothes and appearances look to be the 80s, however the language and some of the interior shots, particularly Em's house don't look or sound anything like the 1980s.  Em (Kristen Stewart) is no really a child ...
