title: Corky Romano 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Chris Kattan, Peter Falk, Peter Berg, Chris Penn, Richard Roundtree, Vanessa Shaw, Fred Ward, Matthew Glave release year: 2001 film rating: One Star sound/picture: Three-and-a-half Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "Corky Romano" reminded me of those "Three's Company" episodes where you want to hide behind the couch until the excruciatingly embarrassing stupidity is over with, so you can stop cringing for the actors. Unfortunately, "Corky" goes on for 86 minutes. I'm beginning to be thankful that there were no sharp objects nearby (although at one point, during a scene that I believe involved a school field trip and cocaine, I did actually contemplate gouging my eyes out with a butter knife).

title: Not Another Teen Movie (Special 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: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Jaime Pressly, Mia Kirshner, Randy Quaid release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Although “Not Another Teen Movie” brands itself as not just another teen movie, the DVD defaults on that promise to a degree. While poking fun at the whole subgenre, the movie primarily targets that same teen audience. The kicker this time is that today’s adult viewer can pick up the DVD and laugh in memory of all the films he or she grew up on during those turbulent teen years.

title: Black Knight 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 Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Martin Lawrence, Marsha Thomason, Tom Wilkinson release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Martin Lawrence’s new movie "Black Knight" isn’t an original idea. Mark Twain penned the immortal story "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court" over a hundred years ago. Like the Twain novel, Lawrence’s new movie transports a guy from the present day into the medieval world, and into all the political intrigues and violence of the day. However, where Twain’s character played pretty much straight with the story and adventure, "Black Knight" goes straight for the jugular in a laugh-out-loud riot of fun. Lawrence’s character Jamal Walker is a slacker, a guy who does just enough to get by, moving from one dollar to the next. He works at Medieval World, a family fun spot that is about to go head-to-head with a new medieval entertainment complex, Castle World. Jamal’s advice ...

title: Husbands And Wives 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: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Woody Allen, Mia Farrow, Judy Davis, Sydney Pollack, Liam Neeson, Juliette Lewis release year: 1994 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea When Sally and Jack (Judy Davis and Sydney Pollack) announce they are splitting up, it throws their best friends Gabe and Judy Roth (Woody Allen and Mia Farrow) into a tailspin. As the quartet of self-absorbed New Yorkers examine love and marriage, the audience is treated to the characters' innermost thoughts and insights in a documentary style.

title: Bandits 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: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, Cate Blanchett, Troy Garity release year: 2001 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Bandits" plays rather like an updated version of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," complete with Etta Place and reimagined primarily as a comedy despite an opening sequence that threatens impending doom. The movie has some terrific jokes, committed performances and a cheerful disposition. The surprise ending isn’t exactly a surprise – an early scene that lays the groundwork also will tip off the finale to anybody paying attention – but getting there is good fun. A much bigger surprise, revealed in the "making-of" featurette, is that this tale of bank robbers with an improbable-seeming technique is actually based (albeit loosely) on fact. Joe Blake (Bruce Willis) and Terry Collins (Billy Bob Thornton) are in a whole lot of trouble when we first meet them. Their attempt to rob a downtown Los ...
