title: Bringing Down The House 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: Touchstone Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Steve Martin, Queen Latifah, Eugene Levy, Jean Smart, Joan Plowright release year: 2003 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Many people remember Steve Martin from his stand-up comedy days and from his appearances on “Saturday Night Live,” but the actor’s greatest chance for everlasting fame may well be the movies he’s made about families. “Bringing Down The House” doesn’t quite reach the same level of execution as “Father of the Bride” or its sequel, or of the tender romantic moments laced with comedy in “Roxanne.” Still, the movie is an enjoyable romp that pairs Martin with Queen Latifah, who stands as a comedic power as well. Martin plays Peter Sanderson, an overworked workaholic attorney who’s divorced and unhappy. His wife (Jean Smart) kept the house and the kids, and Peter has visitation privileges, which never seem to go the way he intends because he ...

Unfortunately, the movie isn’t about a cagey kangaroo with a caustic sense of humor and radical dance moves.

title: About Schmidt 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: R starring: Jack Nicholson, Hope Davis, Dermot Mulroney, Kathy Bates, June Squibb, Howard Hesseman, Harry Groener, Connie Ray, Len Cariou release year: 2002 film rating: Four and a half stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Some people are confounded by the question of whether Alexander Payne's wry, melancholy "About Schmidt" is a comedy or a drama. Star Jack Nicholson thinks of it as a comedy, but it's as sad and wistful as it is funny. And it's a terrific movie, one of the best of last year, featuring Nicholson's Oscar-nominated performance, among his very best. He's Warren R. Schmidt, whom we meet just as his office clock is ticking down to his last day on his longtime job as an insurance actuary in Omaha, Nebraska. All of his lifetime notes and files have been neatly packed in cartons, his desk is clear, and there's nothing left that's personal. But we ...

title: Bedazzled 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: 20th Century Fox Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Brendan Fraser, Elizabeth Hurley, Frances O’Connor release year: 2000 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein There’s a saying that goes, "The Devil is in the details." The folks involved in the remake of "Bedazzled" might have heeded that adage a little more, as they ignore their own mythology at their peril. This "Bedazzled" is a remake of the original 1967 "Bedazzled," itself a spoof of the Faust legend. In both movies, a lonely, lovestruck schnook sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for seven wishes in order to land the girl of his dreams. Naturally, the wishes all come with unforeseen drawbacks. The first version was directed by Stanley Donen, starring and, perhaps even more importantly, written by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Cook and Moore were a formidable comedy team in their heyday – think of a slightly earlier Monty Python troupe as a ...

title: Jackass The Movie (Special 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(); studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R (For dangerous, sometimes extremely crude stunts, language and nudity) starring: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Steve-O, Dave Englund, Ryan Dunn, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna. Preston Lacy, Ehren McGhehey release year: 2002 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-half Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey After receiving much heat from the public, who felt the show was a dangerous influence on children and young adults, MTV pulled the plug on the highly successful and controversial show “Jackass.” For those of you not familiar with “Jackass,” it was a half-hour collage of stunts, pranks and general mayhem filmed by a group of twenty- and thirtysomethings.
