title: School Of Rock 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jack Black, Joan Cusack, Mike White release year: 2003 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein “School of Rock” is a movie with a bit of magic to it – not “Harry Potter”-style magic, but rather the magic that happens when everything comes together in just the right way. This is all the more impressive as the magic is slow to work – the beginning of “School” looks so standard issue that it’s amazing to see it come to life and more surprising still to find it gradually overcoming its potential for saccharine convention to be actually funny and winning.

title: Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: David Spade, Mary McCormack, Jon Lovitz, Craig Bierko, Alyssa Milano, Rob Reiner release year: 2003 film rating: One-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas A mildly amusing and but oddly lackluster look at what it might be like to be a former child star, “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” suffers from too many dull moments and too much exposition to really succeed. Seeking to capitalize on the many former child actors who get in trouble, such as the “Brady Bunch” gang and others, “Dickie Roberts” seeks to poke fun not only at the actors themselves, but also the amount of attention or lack thereof that is paid to them in the media. It also pokes fun at the media itself for denying these former stars any sort of hope to rekindle their careers.

title: Ralphie May: Just Correct 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 Music & VI MPAA rating: NR starring: Ralphie May release year: 2004 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey I love stand-up comedy. I have Sirius Satellite radio that has two comedy channels and I find myself listening to hours and hours of stand-up comedy bits every week as I drive to work. As much as I enjoy listening to these little snapshots of comedy, nothing beats an hour-plus-long set from a great comedian. With the popularity of the DVD format, we are sure to see more and more stand-up comedians filming their shows and releasing videos. Live stand-up comedy is one of the purest forms of entertainment. A singer can go into the studio and a producer can fix and tweak things until it is perfect. Guitar players in a band can turn their instrument down and musically hide behind the drummer or bass player. If a stand-up comedian bombs, ...

"My Boss's Daughter" is that movie. It made my brain hurt. A lot. I even got up to check, at one point, to see if I was bleeding from the eyes. Alas, no. I suffered through all (including five minutes of R-rated footage never before seen!) 90 minutes with both eyes wide open, unfortunately feeding images directly into my brain the entire time.

title: Life Of Brian 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin release year: 1979 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When this wise and funny movie was first released in the United States, it created a mini-furor that prefigured the much noisier one that surrounded Scorsese's Last Temptation of Christ a few years later. The religiously inflexible regarded Life of Brian as nothing less than blasphemy, creating enough intolerant clamor that the film didn't get as many bookings as it deserved. Thankfully, the busy, gutsy video company Anchor Bay Entertainment has now issued the film in a handsome DVD package. It's short on extras -- the usual trailer and talent biographies (though these are excellent) -- but the print is exceptionally good, the sound crisp and vivid, and the packaging appropriate. It's hard to read the titles on a small screen, but what the heck.
