Last Holiday "Last Holiday" got shafted at the box office, remaining in theaters for less than two months and grossing only $38 million (the majority of which was accumulated in the opening weekend.  For some reason or another, it did not have great word-of-mouth.  Regardless, this film is a wonderful delight. "Last Holiday" has charm, a good story, and characters that you love and hate.  All that makes for a slightly above average romantic comedy.  I can't really come up with anything bad to say about this film.  It warms the heart. The film is a remake of the 1950, Henry Cass film of the same name, starring Alec Guinness.  In Cass' film, the roles were reversed.  The man was the center of the film, whereas in the 2006 remake, the woman is the main character. Queen Latifah, who really does have acting skills on ...

Wedding Crashers "Wedding Crashers" was in my opinion the best film of 2005.  It opened in mid July and grossed just over $200 million in the United States – outranking its competitor at the time, "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory."  Like "Ghost Town," "Wedding Crashers" is that rare comedy film that captures you from beginning to end. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn star in this outrageous romantic comedy as friends, John Bechwith and Jeremy Gray, who love to crash weddings in order to sleep with women.  Each year brings about a three-week wedding season with drinking, laughs, lies and sex.  The friends are partners in their own law firm (dealing primarily in divorce).  The duo plans each of the crashed weddings down to a T.  They work up elaborate backgrounds, family relationships, and stories about their lives, and of course fake names. After weeks ...

Ghost Town "I see dead people."  Just kidding.  Wrong movie.  But much the same, "Ghost Town" is all about seeing dead people.  The screenplay is written by David Koepp, but it is Ricky Gervais that shines in this film.  There is no other comic actor that could have pulled off this role.  It is as if the part was made just for him. Fans of the television show, "The Office" will likely know of Gervais.  He was the original creator of the "The Office" in England, later to be adapted for American television by fellow comic actor Steve Carrell.  Gervais' humor is an acquired taste, and you must be into British humor to understand much of his humor.  However, "Ghost Town" brings him firmly into America's comedy scene. Gervais stars as Bertram Pincus, a dentist in New York that is sheltered and downright rude ...

Heartbreak Kid, The (2007) Finally, a movie that doesn't have Vince Vaughn in it.  Wheww!  Ben Stiller and the creators of "There's Something About Mary," do it again.  "The Heartbreak Kid" is a remake of the 1972 film of the same title starring Cybill Shepherd and Charles Grodin.  While the two films have the same story, it is difficult to compare them.  The original is a comedy of the 70s, and so much has changed since then that Stiller's remake is on a whole different level. The film was only moderately successful for a comedy film at the box office, grossing almost $37 million.  Still, the film has its moments and flows rather nicely.  Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan deliver superb performances, as do many of the supporting cast members. Eddie (Ben Stiller) is the owner of a sporting goods store in San Francisco and has ...

Run Fatboy Run "Run Fatboy Run" is another run of the mill film, that will not provide you much entertainment.  Despite Simon Pegg's hilarious performances in "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," this film's funny moments are so few and far between that they are lost altogether. David Schwimmer, who played Ross in "Friends," directs "Run Fatboy Run."  Previously David had directed a few TV episodes, but this film is his first major directing job.  While the directing is fair, it is not memorable by any means.  The actor performances are sub-par, the cinematography is bland, and the story is trite and boring. The tagline for the film says it all: "Love. Commitment. Responsibility."  Dennis (Simon Pegg) runs away from his wedding, leaving his pregnant girlfriend standing at the altar.  Why?  Well, because he is a stereotypical cliché – afraid of being a father.  ...
