SCARY MOVIE 4

2 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 100 minutes

IN THEATERS! Before we take a baseball bat to David Zucker’s headlights though, it must be pointed out that, if anything, the “Scary Movie” franchise has been very loyal to the film that served as it’s original mickey-ing inspiration, “Scream”….if only because they’ve got worse with each sequel!!

AMERICAN PIE: BAND CAMP (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 87 minutes

COMING TO DVD DECEMBER 26TH! “American Pie: Band Camp” is a bit of a surprise. It’s not as frothy or hot as the first film, but side by side with the theatrically released “American Wedding,” it’s unquestionably the better movie…

KISS, KISS, BANG, BANG

4 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 102 minutes

IN THEATERS! From the in-jokes to the character stereotypes, nonsensical action sequences and sardonic outline – Black’s seemingly yanked every memory of his Hollywood years from his noggin, put them down on paper and taken a Nikon to it. The result? A blast…

BATMAN FOREVER (DVD)

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 1995
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 122 minutes

Suddenly, “Batman” was back on the screen – and it was camp, colorful, keyed up, and brimming with stars. To my surprise, the elements seemed to work. Your enjoyment of their mesh depended, of course, on what you like it in a “Batman” movie though…

MR. & MRS. SMITH

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 115 minutes

IN THEATERS! Even without a plot, how hard would’ve it been to watch two of the sexiest stars in the world frolic about in their undergarments and cock silencer-adorned guns for a couple of hours? Thankfully, Liman’s film is not the equivalent of a piece of stale cheesecake…

MONSTER-IN-LAW

3 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 95 minutes

IN THEATERS! It is amusing, and the characters are a hoot, but there’s one inimitable thing about “Monster-In-Law”: it seems awfully familiar…

XXX: STATE OF THE UNION

2 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 94 minutes

IN THEATERS! If any sequel deserved the direct-to-video treatment it was this one…What was done with stunts, is now done with computers; the splotch of plot the first film encompassed has been excised by a transitory few lines to drive the film forward, and the blueprint, about as non-specific as home-brand table salt…

THE EXTRA

THE EXTRA
3 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 100 minutes

Essentially a movie that relies on the comic and charm of the popular Irish export, “The Extra” tells the story of, well, a film extra that yearns to get his mug on his own movie-billboard one day…
