Bride Wars (2009) "Bride Wars" is 20th Century Fox's next attempt at a wedding disaster film.  2008 saw the release of "27 Dresses."  I must say that I much prefer "27 Dresses" to "Bride Wars."  When it was released, "Bride Wars" was not panned by critics, but it certainly did not get a lot of attention.  The film grossed about $60 million at the box office, raking in a tidy $20 million profit. Gary Winick directed the film.  His most notable directing credit comes from "13 Going On 30."  His directorial style is akin to that in "13 Going on 30," but it just doesn't have that same "love of life" feel to it.  The cinematographer is decent given that there isn't much visual works to be done in this romantic comedy genre. Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson star in this tale of two best ...

Princess Bride, The (1987) "Hello.  My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die." Those are perhaps some of the most memorable words in cinematic history.  "The Princess Bride" is perhaps one of the most memorable cinematic pieces.  Maybe I am biased, as I was the prime age group targeted when the film was released in 1987.  It is a corny film that doesn't come across as corny.  Having not seen this film in years, it was a real treat to watch. Aside from the terrific cast, the film has the perfect fairytale story.  It incorporates all of the favorite Disney classics.  As Peter Falk says in the beginning, it's got fighting, sports, fencing, true love, miracles, etc.  There is nothing left out of this film's story.  Even after you know how everything unfolds, you can still watch this film over and over ...

Pretty Woman There is probably no other film that is a more known as a “chick flick” than “Pretty Woman.”  I have never understood how it got pegged as that.  The film has depth and high quality acting.  “Chick flicks” are typically those silly romantic comedies or pure romantic dramas that boyfriends just hate to watch with their girlfriends.  All that is just so cliché.  Guys enjoy those films just as much.  Come on.  Admit it. I think everyone out there knows the story of “Pretty Woman,” but just in case…  Richard Gere stars as Edward Lewis, a successful businessman that is in Los Angeles on a business trip.  After attending a party, Edward drives his friend's car to get back to the now infamous Beverly Wilshire Hotel.  Unfortunately, he has no idea how to drive a stick-shift, high-class car.  Somehow he winds ...

Groundhog Day (Special 15th Anniversary Edition) “Groundhog Day” is one of those timeless comedy films.  There is really absolutely nothing wrong with it.  The story is entertaining.  The acting is superb.  Harold Ramis succeeds without a doubt in the creation of this film.  Hardcore critics I’m sure will find plenty of nuances to criticize.  However, as far as I am concerned, this film is perfect fun. Bill Murray stars as Phil Connors, a self-absorbed weatherman for a Pittsburgh news channel.  Each year he journeys to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the Groundhog’s festival.  Phil finds nothing interesting or fun about the festival, town or people.  He simply wants to get in and get out.  Cameraman Larry (Chris Elliot) is much more relaxed, but rather unsuccessful with the women.  New to the team is producer Rita (Andie MacDowell).  She is kind and warm-hearted and cannot understand Phil’s arrogance. After covering ...

13 Going On 30 I’ve always been a sucker for the romantic comedies.  There is just something about them that draws me in.  While “13 Going On 30” is a bit of a silly “girly” movie, it has a capturing quality.  Jennifer Garner shines, the story is fairly unique, and it all works out in the end.  You can’t ask much more from a romantic comedy. Jennifer Garner stars as Jenna Rink.  As a 13 year-old girl, as with all teenage girls, Jenna hates the way that she looks, feels and acts.  Jenna’s best friend is the boy next door, Matt (adult version played by Mark Ruffalo).  On her 13th birthday, Jenna is completely embarrassed by the evil leader of the six chicks click.  She takes it out on her friend Matt, locking herself in the basement closet.  She always longed to be like the ...
