If Chan, who has a light comedic touch, had starred, the movie would most likely have been a lot more entertaining than it is. Of course, Adam Shankman probably still would have directed, so all bets are off. Shankman has no discernible style, no signs of skill at comedy; “The Pacifier” looks very much like an expanded episode of a fairly dull and ordinary sitcom.

No, it wasn’t written as the theme for the horror movie of that name – although, come to think of it, that would have been appropriately alarming. No, the tune was composed for "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," an offbeat 1971 musical factory based on Roald Dahl’s children’s book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

title: Jamie Foxx - Straight From the Foxxhole 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: Image Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Jamie Foxx TV broadcast year: 1993 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: One and a Half Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey When the Oscar buzz started surround comedic actor Jamie Foxx for his portrayal of gospel/R&B Legend Ray Charles in the Taylor Hackford-directed film “Ray,” the Foxx bandwagon kicked into high gear. Foxx was the focus of hundreds of entertainment news reports leading up to the Oscars and the producers of the Barbara Walters interview specials and the execs at ABC were so sure Foxx would take home Oscar gold that they slated an interview with him to run after the airing of the awards show. With Foxx taking the award for best male actor in a leading role this year, it was no surprise that memories of his past have resurfaced in a big way. “In Living Color,” a show that Foxx was a ...

title: National Lampoon: Lost Reality 2 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: StudioWorks Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: A Whole Smorgasbord of Reality Show Wannabes film release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: One Star sound/picture: One-Half Star reviewed by: Paul Lingas Wow. For those of you out there who can’t get enough of reality television and also for those of you who really can’t stand it, there is something for both of you in this latest offering from the people at National Lampoon. Ostensibly this is a collection of failed reality shows that no network would air or even buy. As a small disclaimer, there is never any indication whether these are the actual pitch demos or not, but no one in them is recognizable and perhaps the only thing that even makes this an issue is the sheer ridiculous nature of the featured programs. In other words, it seems, sadly, that these are all real and not faked by the goofballs at National Lampoon.

title: The Pajama Game 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: NR starring: Doris Day, John Raitt, Eddie Foy, Jr., Carol Haney, Reta Shaw, Barbara Nichols, Ralph Dunn, Thelma Pelish. release year: 1957 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Labor strife in a pajama factory doesn't seem like a promising basis for a musical comedy, but The Pajama Game is wonderful, just wonderful. Bright, funny, colorful, it has an appealing cast, terrific songs (at least one, "Hey There," is a standard), and lively choreography by Bob Fosse. This really is the kind of movie they don't make any more; when musicals do turn up these days, they're mostly on television, mostly remakes, and mostly rather lifeless. The Pajama Game bursts at the seams with life and vigor.
