title: Robin Williams: Live on Broadway 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: Columbia Music Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Robin Williams release year: 2002 film rating: Four and a half stars sound/picture: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Taped for HBO but released on DVD by (oddly) Columbia Music Video, this was the big New York engagement of Robin Williams' standup comedy tour of 2002. He wound across the country, doing his fast-paced act to huge, enthusiastic crowds, and this DVD captures the show splendidly as it was staged at the Broadway Theater. The sound is crystal-clear; there must have been quite a battery of mikes – including the one on Williams’ shirt, which he adds to the act.

title: Bean 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: Polygram Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Rowan Atkinson, Peter MacNicol, Pamela Reed, Harris Yulin, Burt Reynolds release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean character started life as the star of a series of short films. Created by Atkinson and writer Richard Curtis, Bean-the man is surpassingly weird-acts so bizarre that he's compelling to watch as, sometimes by prank and sometimes by sheer accident, he wreaks havoc on his surroundings. In 'Bean,' the odd little klutz has a job at a British art museum, which involves sitting and doing nothing. Bean's employers are so desperate to get rid of their human disaster area that, seeing an opportunity to get rid of him at least temporarily, they pass him off as an art expert and ship him off to America. Bean doesn't even make it out of the airport before he begins to make his U.S. host's life utter hell. It's ironic that ...

title: Scooby-Doo 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 starring: Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Rowan Atkinson release year: 2002 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "Scooby-Doo" is the epic story of Mystery, Inc., four teenagers and their giant talking Great Dane, who have made a successful career of debunking fake ghosts and ghouls. However, all is not roses in the Mystery Machine. Fred (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) is an egocentric jerk, Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is tired of being kidnapped by grumpy old men in rubber masks, Velma (Linda Cardellini) is tired of Fred taking all the credit for her plans, and Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and best friend Scooby are tired of seeing their friends fight. The gang splits up after an angry quarrel at a toy factory, only to be reunited when eccentric millionaire Mr. Mondavarious (Rowan Atkinson) contracts them to discover the secret of Spooky Island, his college spring break hotspot that seems to ...

title: Big Trouble 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: Tim Allen, Omar Epps, Dennis Farina, Ben Foster, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Lee, Rene Russo, Tome Sizemore, Stanley Tucci release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Noted humor and satire newspaper columnist Dave Barry wrote the novel on which “Big Trouble” was based. With the success of other Floridian crime novel writers such as Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, Barry’s book was a natural bestseller and a movie prospect. “Big Trouble” is an ensemble movie, telling the whole story through the interwoven characters’ viewpoints and personal crises. The director, Barry Sonnenfield, also directed the movie based on Leonard’s novel “Get Shorty.” Sonnenfield keeps a lot of the same rapid editing style and jazzy musical score, using the sound to heighten and tighten the scenes and plot points. Chapter 1 opens with Puggy (Jason Lee) telling part of the story, with orchestral music playing in the background and ...

title: Swingers 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: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Ron Livingston, Patrick Van Horn, Alex Désert, Heather Graham release year: 1996 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "Swingers" is a hip, witty, and at times even poignant look at a group of friends who flock to the trendy singles scene but never seem to score -- at least, not in the ways that count. Mike Peters (Jon Favreau) is a truly miserable transplanted New Yorker trying to eke out a living as a comedian in Los Angeles. Having broken up with his girlfriend six months earlier, his best friend Trent (Vince Vaughn) decides that a trip to Vegas is just what his buddy needs to shake his blues. This kicks off an examination of one man's lack of self-esteem and how he "gets his groove back," so to speak.
