title: Nothing to Lose 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(); <br> studio: Touchstone Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Martin Lawrence, Tim Robbins, John C. McGinley, Giancarlo Esposito, Kelly Preston release year: 1997 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If the tale a man rendered suicidal by his wife's adultery and another apparently responsible fellow reduced to armed robbery by financial need doesn't exactly strike you as a knee-slapper, you're right, but still, 'Nothing To Lose' deserves a chance. Director/writer Steve Oedekerk is far too playful to let anything get very heavy. Forget the fact that we don't see the wife's face--the cheery tone alone is a tip-off as to what the finale will be.

title: Trainspotting 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(); <br> studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Kevin McKidd, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly McDonald release year: 1996 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you want a working definition of the phrase "hit the ground running," you need look no further than Chapter Two, the opening of 'Trainspotting.' The image of four young junkies hurtling down an Edinburgh, Scotland street fleeing pursuit is accompanied by a prompt blast of hard rock that will give your audio system something fierce to play with.

title: Happy Gilmore 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-13 starring: Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald, Julie Bowen, Frances Bay, Carl Weathers, Bob Barker, Richard Kiel, Kevin Nealon, Ben Stiller release year: 1996 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Adam Sandler must have enjoyed making Happy Gilmore, because he more or less remade it two years later as The Waterboy. He dumbed it down (not easy), broadened the humor and increased the vulgarity. But the most surprising change is that in Happy Gilmore, the terrible temper of the title character -- played by Sandler, of course -- is a defect in Happy Gilmore and a virtue in The Waterboy. This does not represent progress.

title: National Lampoon's Animal House - Collector's Edition 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(); <br> studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: John Belushi, Tim Matheson, John Vernon, Verna Bloom, Thomas Hulce, Cesare Danova, Donald Sutherland, Karen Allen, Stephen Furst, Mark Metcalf, James Daughton, Kevin Bacon, James Widdoes release year: 1978 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Often imitated but never bettered, 1978’s ‘National Lampoon’s Animal House’ is not only one of the most successful film comedies ever made but also one of the most influential. Pretty much every rowdy teen comedy made since has attempted to either copy outright or somehow improve upon ‘Animal’s mixture of outrageous pranks, irreverence, anarchic high spirits and palpable camaraderie.

title: Liar Liar 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(); <br> studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jim Carrey, Maura Tierney, Jennifer Tilly, Swoosie Kurtz, Cary Elwes release year: 1997 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Silly, sentimental, friendly and tailored to the unique talents of Jim Carrey, ‘Liar Liar’ succeeds at being continuously funny. Every single scene has laughs, though it must be said that this movie plays better with an audience than viewed solo.
