  • 1. BRIDESMAIDS:

    A smash at the box office, this R-rated romantic comedy has been referred to as the female version of The Hangover, and there are some similarities, but this one really stands on its own.  Kristin Wiig (SNL) is Anne … her best friend (May Rudolph) is getting married, she’s a bridesmaid, but she can’t compete with the high-priced, big-income family of the groom.  Anne’s life is a mess anyway – nothing is working out with her business, romance, nothing – so she might as well screw this up too!  Not just another date movie!  Rated 18A.

  • 2. SETUP:

    The premise is good, the setup is good, and so is the cast.  So why is the movie so terrible?  Bruce Willis, 50 Cent, and Ryan Phillipe star in this story of a holdup gang who plan the perfect heist, but don’t count on one of their own hanging them out to dry.  To try to right this wrong, they involve a stone-killer mob boss to help.  Wrong choice!  Mike Guenther, known primarily as a stunt man, directed … badly it turns out.  Rated 18A.   

  • 3. AMERICAN BREAKDOWN:

    You didn’t see this in the theatres, and unless you’re in the States, you didn’t see it on television either.  Great cast, strange movie, made for Showtime cable in the US.  Steve Carrell (The Office), James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), and Scott Caan (Hawaii five O) star in a character study of a number of men alienated from society, and essentially from the world at large.  How did they get here?  How do they move on?  Not your mainstream story despite the “traditional” cast.  Interesting though! Rated 14A.

  • 4. BRIDESMAIDS

    This is the highest-grossing R-rated female comedy of all time, edging out Sex and the City.

TAKERS: 

Despite some serious plot holes, this is a pretty good thriller.  Will you see the ending coming?  Probably!

  • DRIVE

    Not the action-adventure you might expect, this is an artsy, slow-moving character study of a guy who drives … and the people he kills

  • I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT

    Average female rom-com with Sarah Jessica Parker

  • STRAW DOGS

    Violent remake of the Sam Pekinpah-directed original about going home again – not for the weak of stomach!
