Weekend Movie Guide: Bad Rom-Com or Lame Comedy?
I thought Sandra Bullock was done doing romantic comedies. Oh wait, The Proposal probably isn't very funny. Speaking of not funny, Year One is getting savaged. Is it really possible that the extraordinary Michael Cera has finally given us a true dud? Say it ain't so! Woody Allen has enjoyed a resurgence since the beyond awful Hollywood Ending (okay, Scoop sucked, too). Looks like that trend continues with Whatever Works. What a great hook Woody has for older, male actors -- make a movie with me and you'll kiss pretty, young actresses!
How much you enjoy $9.99 will depend largely on how you feel about stop-motion animation. I marvel at the craft of it all so I'm there. Last week, Food, Inc. told us our beef, pork and chicken were bad. This week, The End of the Line tells us we are running out of fish. What the fuck are we supposed to eat? While his profile has been seriously diminished in recent years, Henry Jaglom keeps churning out films. His latest is Irene in Time. Best movie of the weekend is probably The Windmill Movie. Of course, no one will see it.
