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.
