Year One (2009)
Harold Ramis began his directing career auspiciously, helming the golf classic Caddyshack. He followed this up with the equally classic Chevy Chase vehicle Vacation, and in the early 90’s landed yet another enduring comedy winner with the wonderful Groundhog Day (and I can’t help but give him credit for the should-be-a-gimmick but aren’t romps that are Multiplicity and Bedazzled). And yet, despite these landmarks and his work as an actor in such venerable comedies as Stripes and Ghostbusters, Ramis’ career has been plagued with sub par elements. Whether it be the ill-conceived Al Franken stinker Stuart Saves His Family or the boring sequel Analyze That, Ramis’ career has not been without its missteps. After releasing the forgettable The Ice Harvest with John Cusack, Ramis shifted to television, directing several episodes of The Office. During that time, comedy juggernaut Judd Apatow ...

Imagine That (2009)
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mourn the passing of Eddie Murphy’s career.  After a long illness, it finally succumbed this weekend when the final nail, Imagine That, was hammered into its coffin.  It fought the good fight, but even an Oscar nomination (for 2006’s Dreamgirls) was not enough to save it.  In the end, crappyfamilycomedyitis just proved too darn strong.Let us, for a moment, think of better times.  Oh, Raw.  Oh, Delirious.  How a single tear rolls down my cheek as I remember chortling at your antics.  I cannot help but sadly sing to myself, “You have no iiiiice cream, you can’t affooord it, cuz you’re on the welfare and your dad’s an alcohoooolic”.   I remember, too, when you were far and away the best thing about Saturday Night Live (sorry, Joe Piscopo, but it’s true).  I ...

Away We Go (2009)
Sam Mendes intrigues me.  He won an Oscar for his very first feature (American Beauty), an auspicious beginning that I assume puts a lot of pressure on a chap.  He then failed to capture the public’s imagination with his subsequent efforts (Road to Perdition, Jarhead, & Revolutionary Road) which all seemed to just miss the mark somehow.  I keep waiting, however, for him to live up to the promise he showed when he had the entire movie world talking about the stunning grace to be found in a plastic bag.  Of course, the screenplay for American Beauty is something that comes along once in a career and the material he chose afterwards was far less accessible.  Who wants to see a couple tear each other apart or the misery of what war is really like for soldiers in the Middle ...

Land of the Lost (2009)
Let's see, how does it go again? Oh yes! "Marshall, Will, and Holly/On a routine expedition/Met the greatest earthquake ever known./High on the rapids/It struck their tiny raft./And plunged them down a thousand feet below./To the Land of the Lost." That was the opening theme for a little Saturday morning show called Land of the Lost. A Sid and Marty Krofft production (the guys behind the brilliantly trippy H.R. Pufnstuf), the show featured bad acting and terrible special effects. But it also had some decent writing and the show always took itself seriously. While it had a reputation for being campy, that didn't stop it from being one of the best Saturday morning shows ever to hit the small screen. In theory, a film version of the show could have worked similarly to this year's Star Trek, although not as ...

Hangover, The (2009)
I can’t remember the last time a comedy not starring Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell or Ben Stiller was hyped as much as The Hangover.  Why, I wondered, would Warner Bros. spend all this marketing cash on a Vegas buddy movie with no bankable star?  Now that I’ve seen the film, I know why.  It’s freaking hilarious.If you haven’t seen the glut of commercials currently flooding a television set near you (and if you haven’t, you’re either really good with your Tivo remote or feel your time is better spent reading Dostoevsky and feeding the homeless, which, I’m sure it is but let’s face it – if that’s so, this film probably isn’t for you either), The Hangover is about three guys who, after a night of crazy bachelor party Sin City revelry, wake up to no memory and no poor ...
