Show 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: Studio Works Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Yucko the Clown (Roger Black), Zac Pope, Waco, John Radcliff, Greg Epps, Nathan Wright film release year: n/a DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey I’ve always found Yucko the Clown’s appearances on the Howard Stern show to be mildly amusing but never laugh-out-loud hilarious, so I didn’t have high hopes for this low-budget bundle of skits on DVD called “The Damn! Show.” I hadn’t caught any of Yucko’s appearances on the E! version of the Stern show, so I didn’t even know what to expect Yucko and his band of goofball cohorts to look like. Popping this DVD in my player, the first skit up is an animated piece called “Crapple” that is a spoof of Snapple commercials, with stop-motion animation where bottles run around the football field and talk smack to each other. In this skit, a Snapple bottle ...

title: Artie Lange - It's The Whiskey Talking 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: Unrated starring: Artie Lange film release year: n/a DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey I’ve listened to Artie Lange ever since he first joined the Howard Stern show as Jackie Martling’s replacement, and have seen his work on “Mad TV” and in the hilarious cult comedy classic “Dirty Work,” but I had never heard of seen any of Lange’s stand-up act before now. On Howard Stern, Lange gets to throw out little jokes and comments from time to time and he is consistently funny, be he really shines on the show when Stern lets him tell long stories about his drunken and drug-filled wild days. Although he has kicked his cocaine problem, Lange is still a self-acknowledged practicing alcoholic, so the good old days aren’t really so old. Often, when Lange goes on a jag about a wild night of drinking, ...

title: Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle 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: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: John Cho, Kal Penn, Paula Garces, Neil Patrick Harris theatrical release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein In this era of growing anti-tolerance, there is something downright heartwarming in seeing a major studio – in this instance, New Line – release an unabashed stoner comedy. “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” is in a lot of ways a Cheech and Chong movie for the new millennium, albeit the script by Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg does have a few trenchant messages (delivered hilariously and offhandedly) and a plot that tracks through both naturalistic and surreal elements. In fact, “Harold & Kumar” is both surprisingly good and happily surprising all around.

title: Elf (Two-Disc Infinifilm 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(); studio: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Will Ferrell, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen, Edward Asner, Bob Newhart theaterical release year: 2003 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein As its hero Buddy (Will Ferrell) might put it, “Elf” was a ginormous hit when it opened in theatres in 2003. An upbeat comedy about a human raised as an elf thrust into the “real” world, “Elf” is at its heart one of those tales about an unlikely people who saves Christmas. However, “Elf” is surprisingly smart and unself-conscious – it doesn’t wink or preach at the audience. It is so thoroughly on the side of its endearingly naïve, good-hearted protagonist that it manages to avoid all the icky pitfalls of the genre, instead delivering an experience that is genuinely funny and likeable.
