Fox, Julie Warner, David Ogden Stiers, Woody Harrelson, Barnard Hughes, Frances Sternhagen, George Hamilton release year: 1991 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Newly-minted Dr. Ben Stone (Michael J. Fox), on his way to what he sees as the perfect life as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, is furious when his beloved 1956 Porsche breaks down in Grady, South Carolina, squash capitol of the south. Swerving to miss a cow, he's smashed the fence of a local judge, who sentences him to 36 hours of community service in the town's hospital. Stern nurse Packer (Eyde Byrde) cuts him no slack, while ebullient mayor Nick Nicholson (David Ogden Stiers) tries to sell him on the advantages of life in a small town, since crusty old Dr. Hogue (Barnard Hughes) is clearly about to retire. And naturally, there's a local beauty, ambulance driver Lou ...

Our profession dictates that we have fairly extensive vocabularies; we should not have to resort to name-calling. However, sometimes only a word like "lame" will do.

title: Fletch function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Chevy Chase, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Joe Don Baker, Tim Matheson, Richard Libertini, M. Emmet Walsh, Geena Davis, George Wendt release year: 1985 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Gregory McDonald held back selling Hollywood the rights to his "Fletch" until Chevy Chase and others began coaxing him with the promise that the film would be faithful to the novel. And surprisingly enough, Fletch (but not Fletch Lives) really does follow the McDonald style reasonably closely. Even Chase plays about two-thirds of the movie straight, keeping the wisecracks in line with Fletch's ironically playful character. In the other third, Chase insists on trotting out his clumsy gags -- completely out of character for Fletch -- and tossing in lame, off-target wisecracks. Enjoy the film for what it does right, which is most of it, and forgive it for the blunders -- which, unfortunately, dominated the sequel. (A planned third in ...

title: Grosse Pointe Blank function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Hollywood Pictures Home Video starring: John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Dan Aykroyd release year: 1997 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Funny, friendly and sweet, 'Grosse Point Blank' is all the more disarming because its hero's profession would seem to preclude all of these attributes. After all, nice guy though he is, Martin Q. Blank (John Cusack) is a professional hit man.

title: The Breakfast Club function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy release year: 1985 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The Breakfast Club,’ as most folks know, is director/writer John Hughes’ tale of five disparate high school students who bond during a nine-hour Saturday detention period. Andy the jock (Emilio Estevez), Brian the brain (Anthony Michael Hall), John the delinquent (Judd Nelson), Claire the princess (Molly Ringwald) and Allison the kook (Ally Sheedy) imagine they have nothing in common. However, as they first pick on each other over perceived defects, slights and in reaction to attacks, they start to open un and eventually bond. ‘The Breakfast Club’ touched a lot of people in its day – it gets three stars for its undeniable effect on a large portion of the audience. However, if one isn’t prepared to surrender to Hughes’ universe on its own terms, ...
