title: A Perfect Murder 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 Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, Viggo Mortensen, David Suchet release year: 1998 film rating: Two and One-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein As one character here points out, sexual jealousy and money are the two biggest motives for murder. Odd, then, that 'A Perfect Murder' doesn't generate more sense of lust or greed. It is diverting and reasonably competent, give or take a few plot holes, but the film disappears from memory minutes after it ends.

title: Young Frankenstein 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment starring: Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman release year: 1974 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein A quarter of a century after its initial release, ‘Young Frankenstein’ remains sublimely silly and disarmingly sweet. Mel Brooks directed and co-wrote (with star Gene Wilder) this cheerfully delirious send-up of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s seminal horror novel, which had already been immortalized on film several times already, most indelibly by director James Whale, with Boris Karloff as the monster. ‘Young Frankenstein’ is a sequel of sorts, with Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Wilder) a modern ‘30s doctor who is so ashamed of his family legacy that he insists on pronouncing his surname "Fronkensteen." However, when he inherits the Frankenstein manor back in Transylvania, destiny forces him to unearth the old medical journals and soon he, too, is ensconced in the laboratory, intent on giving life to a new creature (Peter Boyle).

title: Dragnet 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: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Dan Aykroyd, Tom Hanks, Harry Morgan, Alexandra Paul release year: 1987 film rating: Two and a half stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein There is something truly endearing about watching someone do something they've always longed to do. This is probably the biggest selling point of 'Dragnet.' Dan Aykroyd looks like he's been waiting his whole life to out-monotone Jack Webb as that quintessential L.A. cop Sgt. Joe Friday. The actor manages the same weird feat of being gleefully solemn. Essentially, it's a right-side-of-the-law variation on his Blues Brothers persona, but Aykroyd is so serenely at home in the role that the performance winds up being rather touching.

title: South Park: Volume 2 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/Comedy Central MPAA rating: NR starring: Trey Parker, Matt Stone release year: 1997 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The animated television series 'South Park,' now running on Comedy Central, has been accused of heralding the end of Western civilization. After seeing four episodes linked together, a more accurate reading of the show would be a) it's possible to do cartoon comedy that is both jaw-droppingly crass and satirically brilliant and b) with the success of this 'toon, there's hope for aspiring artists with minimal drawing skills.

title: Dracula: Prince Of Darkness 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: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Andrew Keir, Francis Matthews, Suzan Farmer release year: 1966 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This exciting horror thriller was the second to star Christopher Lee as Count Dracula, the vampire king (he played a vampire in the Italian comedy Uncle Was a Vampire, but he wasn't Dracula). Excellent photography and a convincing cast, plus an exciting climax are offset somewhat by a script so peculiarly structured that Dracula doesn't even appear until 48 minutes into the movie.
