title: Jerry Maguire 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: TriStar Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Tom Cruise, Renee Zellweger, Cuba Gooding Jr., Regina King, Jonathan Lipnicki, Bonnie Hunt, Jay Mohr, Kelly Preston. release year: 1996 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Cameron Crowe's script for Jerry Maguire defies current Hollywood wisdom: it lacks the three-act structure, and in fact lacks much structure at all. But it was easily one of the best movies of 1996. It's perfectly cast, with the best role Tom Cruise had in years, as well as star-making parts for both Renee Zellweger and Cuba Gooding, Jr., who won the Supporting Actor Oscar. It's tender, emotional, funny, romantic and tough-minded. Not the least of its virtues is six-year-old Jonathan Lipnicki, a funny, bright and utterly lovable little boy, who never seems a bit precocious, and so never wears out his welcome.

title: Dumb and Dumber 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 Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly, Mike Starr, Karen Duffy, Charles Rocket, Victoria Rowell release year: 1994 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Although it was preceded by Kingpin, it was Dumb and Dumber that put the Farrelly Brothers (Peter and Bobby) on the movie map. This often hilarious, usually tasteless comedy was a hit the world over, and was a further boost to Jim Carrey's rise to major stardom. (Doesn't seem to have done a damned thing for Jeff Daniels, though.)

title: Goodfellas 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino release year: 1990 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Unless something unexpected drops out of the sky between now and Dec. 31, ‘GoodFellas’ will rule forever as the single best film about organized crime to come out of the ‘90s. Indeed, it is one of the best films ever on the subject, making us feel as though we’ve lived through the outrageous events along with the characters. Director Martin Scorsese has explored the themes and characters of ‘GoodFellas’ before and since, but never with such immediacy. He manages to make these people thoroughly understandable without romanticizing them; we get why they are who they are without wanting to be them. It’s a tougher dynamic than it may sound, but Scorsese makes it work so that it hangs in the memory in a manner normally reserved for our ...

title: Get Shorty 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/UA Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Rene Russo, Danny DeVito release year: 1995 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Contrary to semi-popular belief, Get Shorty' isn't all that similar to 'Pulp Fiction.' Yes, both movies star John Travolta as a criminal operating in Los Angeles and both have intricate plotlines, but 'Get Shorty' is much the sunnier and sillier of the two. Of all the recent adaptations of Elmore Leonard novels (i.e. 'Jackie Brown,' 'Out of Sight'), this is the one that least resembles a Quentin Tarantino flick.
