title: Heavy Presents: Behind the Music That Sucks 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: Redline Entertainment MPAA rating: Not Rated release year: 2003 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: One Star reviewed by: Paul Lingas Heavy.com presents us with a sometimes very funny parody of VH1’s Behind the Music series with this look at hip-hop. Each segment is around five minutes in length and gives a made-up and unceremoniously scathing portrayal of each artist. The artists parodied on this edition are Puff Daddy, Dr. Dre, Will Smith, Eminem, Tupac, LL Cool J, Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit and Insane Clown Posse. The animation is very simplistic and essentially is comprised of a single photographed cut-out of each celebrity’s head stuck onto a poorly animated body. In the case of Dr. Dre, his head is stuck onto Charlie Brown’s body and the entire segment takes place in a crude recreation of the Peanuts world (Snoop Dogg of course has his head morphed onto Snoopy’s beagle body). Puff Daddy is ...

title: The Matchmaker 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: Polygram Video MPAA rating: R starring: Janeane Garofalo, David O'Hara, Milo O'Shea, Jay O. Sanders, Denis Leary, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Saffron Burrows release year: 1997 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you're looking for pretty Irish scenery supporting a romantic comedy, you could do worse than 'The Matchmaker.' Then again, you could also do better. 'The Matchmaker' is pleasant, wispy vacation of a movie, perked up by some handsome landscapes and the matter-of-fact charm of star Janeane Garofalo.

title: Freaky Friday 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: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan, Harold Gould, Chad Michael Murray, Mark Harmon release year: 2003 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Although offering nothing really new in the ages-old miscommunication and lack of mutual understanding between mothers and daughters, as well as being a remake of an earlier movie, “Freaky Friday” delivers an enjoyable take on the issue and on the role-reversal plot device that has become something of a standard, in one form or another, of teen movies. In 2003, Disney Studios came in second place for the most box office proceeds, and “Freaky Friday” got the nod for being a major contributor to that ranking.

title: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 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: Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Diane Ladd, John Randolph, E.G. Marshall, Doris Roberts, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. release year: 1989 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: One and a Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas Christmas time finds us with the Griswold family, our favorite dysfunctional slice of Americana. We begin as Clark (Chevy Chase) and the rest of the family (Beverly D’Angelo, Juliette Lewis, Johnny Galecki) head out into the snowy Illinois woods to find the Griswold family tree. After a dangerous game of road rage with a pair of rednecks and a bone-chilling trek through the forest, they find it. The tree leads to a number of gags that basically serve to reiterate the fact that Clark always overdoes it or doesn’t think things through in his zeal to make his family suck the marrow out of life. For example, he forgets to bring a saw to cut down the ...

title: National Lampoon's Vacation 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: R starring: Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Imogene Coca, Anthony Michael Hall, Dana Barron release year: 1983 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Tara O' Shea Based on a John Hughes short story which ran in the famous National Lampoon magazine, "Vacation" follows the Griswold family (Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, with Anthony Michael Hall and Dana Barron originating the roles of Rusty and Audrey, and the late great Imogene Coca as Aunt Edna) as they drive from Chicago to the happiest place on Earth -- Wally World. From the very first scene--where SCTV alum Eugene Levy sells Clark (Chase) the wrong car; a station wagon that couldn't have more wood panelling if it were built out of your Irish-American grandfather's den -- everything that can go wrong does, to hilarious effect.
