Michel Gondry is one of the few major directors who still relies on almost entirely visual humor in his films. Be Kind Rewind has numerous instances of pure daffiness and a few nuggets of outright brilliance. Yes, Martin Lawrence still has a flourishing cinematic career. Wonders never cease. For the first couple of episodes, Californication relied a bit too much on David Duchovny banging every hot chick in sight. It eventually settled into a dark commentary about a successful man's failed life. Matthew McConaughey's contract language for Fool's Gold presumably mandated extensive shirtlessness. Kate Hudson's contract, sadly, did not.

Will the derivative comedy starring a middling comedian ever grow old? Of course not. With Get Smart set to completely bomb at the box office in less than a week, it's time to recycle the last attempt to bring the series to the big screen. Was it titled The Nude Bomb in order to fool people who thought they might be seeing a nudie flick? For those who are tired of basic and intermediate Brazilian bikini waxing, today is the perfect day to upgrade to Advanced Brazilian Bikini Waxing. Is the $69 price point significant?
