Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj

If I was the studio that produced Revenge of the Nerds, I'd be on the phone to a lawyer to file a plagiarism/copyright violation suit against the studio that produced Van Wilder 2: The Rise...

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning

It seems that all bad movies deserve a direct-to-DVD sequel, so why not a sloppy prequel to the film version of The Dukes of Hazzard, purporting to tell the "beginning" of the Duke boys story?Along...

You Are Alone

You Are Alone

In case the bleak title isn't a tipoff, You Are Alone isn't a romantic comedy that will have you clicking your heels after you punch eject on your DVD player. It's a sad, complicated, and...

The Third Wish

The Third Wish

Maggie Malone (Jenna Mattison) is the type of girl that exists only in the movies: She lives in San Francisco, works in a bookstore (where virtually no one ever shops), rides her bike everywhere (invariably...

Copying Beethoven

Copying Beethoven

Does Agnieszka Holland hate Beethoven? That's the only explanation I can offer for this horrible, horrible attempt at making the maestro's final year of life into a biopic. Where to start? Oh, let's look to...

If you have a fear of doctors, do yourself a favor and don't watch Sublime. To put it bluntly: The film is about a guy named George (Ed star Thomas Cavanagh) who is given a...

The Natural

The Natural

Robert Redford is beloved for his roles in numerous films, but his work in The Natural has to rank as one of the few on top, despite the fact that, with a $48 million box...

Flag Wars

Flag Wars

"Urban gentrification" is often bandied about like it's nothing but a bad thing. But while low-income residents of the less upscale parts of town tend to get evicted and run out, the community as a...

The Young Poisoner's Handbook

The Young Poisoner's Handbook

Hugh O'Conor is outstanding as Graham Young, a British teen with absolutely no sense of morality. How so? When given a chemistry set, he promptly uses it to start poisoning his friends and family, not...

Journey to the End of the Night

Journey to the End of the Night

Despite the killer title (Journey to the End of the Night is the name of a nihilistic Celine book that has nothing to do with this film), this Brendan Fraser sex-and-drugs drama can't live up...

Ghost

With a premise this stupid, it's hard to believe that Ghost became not just a mega-blockbuster but -- and you may have forgotten this -- the winner of two Oscars. Sure, most people remember Whoopi...

Lovewrecked

Lovewrecked

With her impossibly perky demeanor and abject willingness to make a fool out of herself at every opportunity, Amanda Bynes is tailor made for a move like Lovewrecked, where she'll be doused with bugs or...

State's Evidence

State's Evidence

With a title like State's Evidence, and knowing nothing about the movie, I assumed it could be one of two things: Run-of-the-mill gangster flick, possibly with an informer being protected from mobsters looking to kill...

A Good Woman

A Good Woman

Shot in 2004 and (sort of) released in 2006, this oddball updated of Oscar Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan never quite connects, thanks largely to its awful casting of Helen Hunt in the lead role. Here,...

Revenge of the Nerds

Revenge of the Nerds

History has been good to Revenge of the Nerds. Uncommonly good, really. Impossibly good.In many ways, it's hard to figure out exactly why. It's not, on the surface, particularly well made. It doesn't feature an...

The Narrow Margin (1952)

The Narrow Margin (1952)

It's "protect the witness" in this brief trainbound thriller, which gives us George C. Scott-soundalike Charles McGraw as a grumpy cop protecting a mobster's wife en route to the witness stand. A mountain of obstacles...

Narrow Margin (1990)

Narrow Margin (1990)

It was an odd choice to remake a mediocre 1950s noir, but at least Gene Hackman is engaging as ever in the leading role, however slightly written it is. The cat-and-mouse game of the original...

Tomorrow Never Dies

Tomorrow Never Dies

The arguable nadir of the Bond series, Tomorrow Never Dies finds a weary Brosnan battling, ahem, a Rupert Murdoch-like media mogul who uses mercenaries to start wars just so he can write about them in...

Licence to Kill

Licence to Kill

Timothy Dalton's second (and final) Bond outing is mainly memorable for nothing in the film itself. The title, Licence to Kill, was a change from the original Bond story, Licence Revoked, when it was revealed...

Man About Town

Man About Town

Yeah, that's Ben Affleck grinning out at you from the cover of this direct-to-DVD release, but don't let that turn you off of the film completely. Man About Town may be rehashed from Jerry Maguire...

The Living Daylights

The Living Daylights

The casting of Timothy Dalton as James Bond in this 15th entry into the adventures of 007 is widely considered a classic mistake: Dalton isn't suave like Sean Connery or even Roger Moore. It's hard...

A View To A Kill

A View To A Kill

At age 58, Roger Moore turned in his action hero togs after this final outing as Bond. A View to a Kill is at least better than Octopussy, but it's so absurd as to make...

Memron

Memron. It's not Enron. Right? This goofy mockumentary (which I'm guessing was largely improvised) tells the story of what happens to a group of workers after their once-mighty company falls apart. Blame greedy bosses all...

Soup of the Day

Vaguely amusing but not in a laugh-out-loud sorta way, Soup of the Day gives us the nearly unthinkably impossible story of Brandon Craig (Jon Crowley), who's juggling three girlfriends, all of who he has proclaimed...

While I futilely try to figure out the ending of Persons Unknown means, I'm left to wonder why this film saw no real theatrical release, and why it took 11 years to make it to...

Octopussy

Hardly Mr. Bond's finest hour. This oddball adventure (apparently a conflagration of two different Bond novels) has poor Roger Moore dressed as a clown in a gypsy circus, attempting to outsmart an enemy by (gasp)...
