It’s always a bad sign in a thriller when the big reveal is greeted by hoots of derisive laughter, and that’s what happened at this movie. It’s an even worse sign when two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster is out-acted by […]

I love this movie so much I wanted to go up and hug the screen when it was over. And then I wanted to sit down with everyone I know and watch it over again. It’s a triple threat, and […]

Many romantic comedies have a Sleeping Beauty theme, but few as literally as this by-the-book but enjoyable trifle. Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) is a dedicated doctor who has no life outside the hospital. One night her car is hit by a […]

People often speak of “opening up” a play when it is made into a movie. In one sense the Tony- and Pulitzer-prize winning Broadway production of “Proof” has been opened up. Instead of entirely taking place at one house near […]

You never know.” What does that mean? Of course you never know, but why would someone adopt that as an all-purpose rejoinder? Writer/producer/actor Paul Reiser has a good feel for the way families talk to each other, especially the talk […]

There are so many reasons to love writer-director Nick Park’s dim, gentle, cheese-loving inventor Wallace and his patient, practical, and loyal dog, Gromit. First, they are brilliant at every kind of funny, from sophisticated wit to sly parody to outrageous […]
