Charlie’s Angels

GET SOME ACTION. Three female agents (Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu) must find a kidnapped businessman, but too late do they realize that the mission is a trap. The old ‘70s show that relied on silly and sexy adventures got its widescreen remake and everything is of course souped-up to the nth degree. The actresses … Continue reading Charlie’s Angels

In the Bleak Midwinter

THE DRAMA. THE PASSION. THE INTRIGUE… AND REHEARSALS HAVEN’T EVEN STARTED. Young stage director Joe Harper (Michael Maloney) attempts to produce ”Hamlet” in a church on the English countryside, but there is no shortage of problems.

Men in Black II

SAME PLANET. NEW SCUM. The men in black are back after five years but the same story is recycled, with another alien in human shape (Lara Flynn Boyle) threatening Earth and another rookie agent in training (Tommy Lee Jones, whose character has no recollection of his previous days as an MIB operative). Frank the talking dog has … Continue reading Men in Black II

American Pie 2

This summer it’s all about sticking together. Maybe the funniest thing in the world is watching Seann William Scott think he’s drinking champagne and subsequently realize that it’s actually urine. Or, maybe not. There is one thing worth admiring about this follow-up. The entire cast committed to a second helping, in which the boys rent … Continue reading American Pie 2
