Weekend Movie Guide: Vaughn-tastic!

After the awful Fred Claus, Vince Vaughn owes us some laughs and Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland might be just the ticket. It follows Vaughn and four hand-picked comedians as they cross the country to play an exhausting 30 shows in 30 nights. There are a bevy of on-stage celebrity cameos and Vaughn never lets his out-sized persona overwhelm everyone else...mostly.
Considering the unwelcome success that How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days enjoyed, it was only a matter of time before Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey reunited on-screen. The film they chose is Fool's Gold where they play, respectively, Tess and Finn Finnegan. Yes, McConaughey's character is named Finn Finnegan. That tells me all I need to know. Alexis Dziena is awfully cute, but I must say, "Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!"
There are many miracles in this world and few are more amazing than the flourishing career of Martin Lawrence. I was pretty sure he was done ten years ago when he went nuts and ran around Ventura Boulevard waving a pistol. And yet...he persists. His latest is Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, a hilarious tale about a talk-show host who returns home to his Deep South roots. And by "hilarious", of course, I mean "not hilarious."
