Some Like It Hot (1959) “Some Like It Hot” is just that…Hot.  This is the first Marilyn Monroe film that I ever saw and she leaves quite the impression.  This film is fun and energetic from beginning to end.  There is never a dull moment. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon star as Joe and Jerry, a saxophonist and bassist in prohibition 1929.  When they become witnesses to the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago, they have to figure out the quickest way out of town.  The film starts out as a serious mobster film and quickly takes a turn for the comical.  Joe and Jerry pose as women, Josephine and Daphne in order to join an all girls band that is head for Florida.  Curtis and Lemmon dressed as women is hysterical in its own right, but their interactions with others as women just adds icing ...

Switch, The (2010) Clichéd, flawed and predictable all rolled into one.  Yet, the film is still somehow engaging.  Well at least during parts.  However, you must decide upfront if you are really in the mood for another one of the cookie-cutter romantic comedies. While I found parts of this film interesting, it is hard to move past the characters’ motivations, or lack there of.  However, what will be will be and you must take the film for what it is; a silly, brainless romance. Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) is a 40-something woman living in New York with no prospect of a boyfriend.  Taking the creation of life into her own hands she decides to get impregnated by a donor.  Her BFF, Wally (Jason Bateman) is against the idea, naturally, because at first it is simply about how much he doesn’t want to be in the “friend ...

Beauty & The Briefcase (2010) Call me sentimental, or something to that effect, but I usually like ABC Family Original movies.  “Beauty & The Briefcase” is not exception.  Sure, it has numerous faults, but for a made-for-TV movie it is quite entertaining. The film was originally aired in the beginning of 2010.  Now, one year later it is getting a Blu-ray release.  This is likely due to the fact that it was originally shot in full progressive HD and is an easy Blu-ray transfer. “Beauty & The Briefcase” is based on the book “Diary Of A Working Girl.”  Lane Daniels (Hilary Duff) is a freelance fashion writer trying to get her big break.  After a recent successful story in Her Style magazine her successful fashion photographer friend, Joanne (Amanda Walsh) is able to get her a pitch appointment with the editor of Cosmo magazine (Jaime Pressly). Arising from ...

You Again (2010) Honestly, I am all for romantic comedies.  There are quite a few titles in the genre that I find tasteful and well done.  “You Again” is definitely not one of them.  This film is such a mess that it makes the recent “Life As We Know” release seem like a five-star release. It seems as if the studio took a script off the pile on their desk, threw it at relatively novice filmmaker and said, “throw together a nig-name cast and make this film.”  Yes, the film certainly has some big stars in it.  However, that doesn’t keep this film from plummeting to the depths of romantic comedy hell. I will spare you the speech on how this is an utterly predictable and overly done piece.  To summarize, the film pits two generations of families who share archrivals from high school days ...

Life As We Know It (2010) I know I sound like a broken record, but it is all too true of today’s films.  This is another classic example of predictable and dull.  “Life As We Know It” is completely unoriginal.  In fact, it comes across as such that you sit the entirety of the film thinking, “Surely I have seen this before.” Usually there is some saving grace in a film like this, but alas I could find none here.  Normally the actors save the film for the audience, but here, the two primary actors are cliché and seem a bit awkward, despite the fact that they seem veterans of this genre.  Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel deliver underwhelming and uninspiring performances.  Don’t blame the actors for this one.  The script and directing is horrendous. The script plays like notes on a piano; one right after another, falling ...
