title: Don't Try This At Home, The Steve-O Video 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: Yeah Dude MPAA rating: NR starring: Steve-O, Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Jason "Wee-Man" Acuna, Ryan Dunn, Preston Lacy release year: 2001 film rating: Two Stars - (Five Stars if you love Jackass) sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Every generation seems to develop its spokesperson for the truly bizarre and unnatural. Given the "been there/done that" attitude of the 1990s and the beginning of the first decade of the new millennium, finding a spokesperson for the bizarre and unnatural of the present world seems at first glance to be a hard task. Scanning the events of ESPN's Extreme Sports, it seems that a large section of humanity (okay, some would question that whole humanity issue because some insist they are freaks and are either ahead of humanity or behind it as a result) has gone totally bizarre and exhibit some kind of death wish, or at least like to flirt ...

title: Pretty In Pink 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Molly Ringwald, Jon Cryer, Andrew McCarthy, Harry Dean Stanton release year: 1986 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein John Hughes is widely credited as the godfather of the ‘80s teen comedy genre. Whether or not this view is technically correct, he is probably the most influential figure in that genre. “Pretty in Pink” is perhaps the best example of Hughes’ style, even though Howard Deutsch is the director (Hughes co-executive produced with Michael Chinich and wrote the script). The plot seemed familiar even at the time of the movie’s 1986 theatrical release, but the approach is so genuine and urgent – it captures that everything-is-the-end-of-the-world ambience of high school so completely – that it somehow all feels fresh anyway.

title: National Lampoon's Van Wilder 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: Artisan Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Ryan Reynolds, Tara Reid, Tim Matheson, Paul Gleason release year: 2002 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Recognized for irreverent and cutting-edge comedy, National Lampoon delivers yet another rollicking, just-short-of-offensive but romantic slapstick movie, “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder,” about life and love during the college years. Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character, a student who has spent the past seven years at Coolidge College. During that time, Van has managed to involve himself in all organizations, fraternities, and events that have caught even his passing fancy without graduating. He’s a campus legend. Everyone knows him. However, his estranged father has never really spent time with him to know him, and — despite ongoing flings with the ladies — Van has never found love. All of that is about to change.

Throw in a big-time drug distribution threat, a murder victim who wears a Johnny Chimpo cartoon tattoo relating to drug distributors, two sex-crazed Germans (one of each sex) and star-crossed lovers in different uniforms. Once all those ingredients are in place, shake well, then take away accountability and liberally lace with a view of the world that’s skewed and just out to have fun.

It’s mildly quirky, amiable, predictable and formulaic while displaying small flashes of wit, charm and humor. The likable and already visibly gifted John Cusack stars as Lane, a teenager in a small Northern California town whose existence comes unraveled with his girlfriend Beth (Amanda Wyss) dumps him for a popular jock. Lane is so devastated that he makes a number of forlorn (and fairly half-assed) attempts at suicide, giving the movie its title. Lane’s well-meaning but clueless parents are no help. Luckily, Lane has an ever-encouraging best friend (Curtis Armstrong) and a comely French exchange student neighbor (Diane Franklin) – ...
