Girls Trip

YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU CAME. Four friends (Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish) who call themselves ”The Flossy Posse” are reunited after many years for a trip to New Orleans. The kind of film that came in the wake of The Hangover (2009) where friendship is tested and celebrated during an intense … Continue reading Girls Trip


WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) decides to recreate the road trip to Walley World that his parents took him on 30 years ago, this time with his wife (Christina Applegate) and two sons. A reboot of the original Vacation franchise that also plays pretty much like a remake of the first film. … Continue reading Vacation

Death at a Funeral

THIS IS ONE SAD FAMILY. As Aaron Barnes (Chris Rock) is preparing for the funeral of his father, it is gearing up to be a disaster. Only three years after Frank Oz’s hilarious British comedy comes the remake, directed by Neil LaBute who’d already made a mess out of the Wicker Man remake. As it is very close … Continue reading Death at a Funeral

The Honeymooners

DREAM BIG. SCHEME BIGGER.  A New York bus driver (Cedric the Entertainer) has never seen a get-rich-quick scheme he hasn’t fallen for; his latest idea could derail his wife’s (Union) plans to buy a duplex. Many critics hated this version of the classic 1955-1956 TV show, but perhaps they just love the original too much. … Continue reading The Honeymooners

Ally McBeal: Justice In a Miniskirt

David E. Kelley has a silly side. Sure, he’s a former Boston lawyer. Yes, he’s married to Michelle Pfeiffer and yes, he’s now a successful television producer. But at least two of his shows, Ally McBeal and Boston Legal, have exposed him as a person who thinks the world of courtrooms and law firms is too much fun … Continue reading Ally McBeal: Justice In a Miniskirt

Scary Movie 4

THE FOURTH AND FINAL CHAPTER OF THE TRILOGY. Cindy (Anna Faris) moves into a haunted house and familiarizes herself with the neighbor (Craig Bierko)… but then aliens attack Earth. Director David Zucker’s second stab at this franchise mainly spoofs War of the Worlds (2005), but includes many other parodies, such as one of The Village (2004) that is … Continue reading Scary Movie 4

Scary Movie 3

YOU’LL DIE TO SEE THESE RINGS. Finally, they got rid of those Wayans brothers and hired the people who virtually created this genre, including David Zucker. Primarily it is The Ring and Signs that are being spoofed here, as a reporter (Anna Faris) finds out that a deadly videotape has something to do with circles in crop fields. But … Continue reading Scary Movie 3

Scary Movie 2

NO MORE MERCY. NO MORE SHAME. NO MORE SEQUELS – HONEST! WE LIED. This sequel is mainly a send-up of The Haunting (1963); the leading characters spend a weekend at a haunted house. But many other films are also desecrated, including The Exorcist (1973) in an uneven opening sequence where James Woods gets to do a Max von Sydow … Continue reading Scary Movie 2
