Meet The Fockers Review


OK
Will Teri Polo be remembered for any other movie aside from Meet the Parents and its sequel?

The answer is irrelevant and really doesn't matter at all. It's just something that struck me during one of the many lulls in the surprisingly uneven and marginally entertaining Meet the Fockers. Trust me: You'll have plenty of time to ponder this and other cinematic riddles when you're watching Fockers.

Marvin's Room Review


OK
This weepfest really pulls out all the stops: Not only is Meryl's sister (Diane Keaton) dying of leukemia, her dad's (Hume Cronyn) almost a vegatable, and her son's (Leonardo DiCaprio) a rotten pyromaniac. Poor Meryl. There's a lot of talent that elevates this being movie of the week material, but it's still hard to be thrilled by the melodratic histrionics, Leo or no. Family angst and reconciliation... bleargh. More than anything, though, I wonder who would want to go see the play this was based on?

Entropy Review


Good
Enjoyable despite being only midly comprehensible, Entropy gives us Steven Dorff as star -- and simultaneous on-screen narrator -- in a tour of his character's out-of-whack hipster-cum-filmmaker's life. While it's easy -- and forgivable -- to dismiss Entropy as dreck produced by Hollywood insiders, about Hollywood insiders, there are enough juicy moments in the film to merit giving it its due. Namely, Kelly Macdonald's charming performance as a brief love interest and a talking/smoking cat. U2's Bono guest-stars as himself.

House Of D Review


Good
How much Robin Williams can we take? A week before his new film, House of D, previewed in Boston, Williams appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (where he tactfully walked offstage because he could not shut the hell up), and at the Oscars on Sunday. Add in his shtick from the unavoidable onslaught of Robots TV commercials, and this guy gets more airtime than a Martha Stewart prison release.

It's a testament then to Williams's fine acting, and debut writer-director David Duchovny, that the motor-mouth's co-starring turn in House of D isn't a turn-off. Far from it. Williams and 15-year-old Anton Yelchin (Hearts in Atlantis) make up the unlikely duo in this coming-of-age drama about the friendship between Pappass, a mentally retarded janitor (Williams), and Tommy, a single-parent teen (Yelchin) in 1973 Greenwich Village. Williams displays, as he does in most of his dramatic films, a welcome appropriateness, a delivery of action and reaction that helps give House of D a good heart and some laugh-out-loud nuggets of wisdom.

The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle Review


OK
Much of the fun of the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons came from the constant wordplay and ironic humor that marked the 60s series. The various puns and wink-wink self-references flew around more than that little squirrel. The live action-meets-animation film chapter, then, has the right idea. The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle starts off as a giant, 4th wall-busting sequel, with a giddy mix of groaners and knee-slappers. But, remember the other effective trait of a Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon? It came in short, sharp tastes, not a 90-minute overload.

Despite all its frivolity, that is the problem with The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. After a surprisingly savvy and funny introduction, this wildlife road comedy can't generate enough smart-ass creativity to sustain its feature length. And as the appearance of well-timed cameos grab most of the movie's laughs later on, it's sadly apparent that those walk-ons (thank you John Goodman, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, and others) become a crutch.

Showtime Review


Excellent
Rodney Dangerfield knew it. You can't get respect being funny. Nobody gets anywhere unless you're taken seriously. At least that's the company line these days in Hollywood, where it seems most of the entertainment industry's best funnymen are becoming more interested in eliciting tears than laughter. It is really quite ironic then that the one guy putting out consistently good comedy is Hollywood's most serious actor.

That's right, I'm talking about Showtime, starring the aforementioned serious actor, Robert De Niro, as tough guy cop Mitch Preston, who crosses the line with the press and gets too rough. With lawsuits looming, Mitch's police department is railroaded into letting a TV network turn his police beat into a reality-based buddy cop show. Adding insult to injury, he's been assigned a fame-hungry, lame duck partner, to play the "funny minority type" (Eddie Murphy).

Meet The Parents Review


Extraordinary
Pity poor Greg Focker. Not only is the man employed as a male nurse with an unfortunate name, but he's about to meet his girlfriend's parents in order to ask dad for her hand in marriage. Only dad is about as humorless as, say, Robert De Niro. And poor Greg can't do anything right to save his skin.

It all reminds me, with flashback-like intensity, of meeting my own father-in-law-to-be, a guy so stern he makes De Niro look like Jim Carrey. Picture Ben Stiller as Focker (or me) and De Niro as himself, and, like magic, you've got yourself one hell of a comedy that will see few equals this year or any other. (Note to Dr. Carder: This is just a joke that I know you'll laugh about because we have such a great relationship! See you this Christmas!!!)

About A Boy Review


Very Good
Prepare to meet the male version of Bridget Jones, as Hugh Grant turns in one of the best performances of his career in a solid -- yet considerably muddy -- romantic comedy.

In About a Boy, Hugh Grant appears to be playing, well, Hugh Grant, a guy with dashing good looks who gets by on his inheritance and his incredible charm. The fact that Will "does nothing" for a living becomes a running joke and even seems to put a damper on his love life, as women are put off by his go-nowhere lifestyle. So rather than get a job, Will decides to join a single parents' support group, inventing a young son and a sob story in the hopes that the vulnerable single moms overlook his character flaws. But the plot backfires when an über-geeky 12-year-old kid named Marcus (Nicholas Hoult, more precocious even than Haley Joel Osment on bath day) takes a liking to Will, showing up on his doorstep every day after school. Alongside their unlikely friendship arise some serious issues -- primarily involving Marcus's suicidal mother (Toni Collette).

Analyze This Review


Extraordinary
Abbott and Costello. Matthau and Lemmon. Crystal and De Niro? It sound odd but Billy Crystal and Robert De Niro play perfectly with each other in Analyze This. The story revolves around psychiatrist Ben Sobol (Crystal) who runs a small place with a small client list. One day, one of New York's biggest mobsters (De Niro) has a panic attack and strolls into Sobol's office. You can imagine where it goes from here.

Analyze This is comedy at it's best. I like how Crystal (the comedian) plays the straight man, and De Niro (the dramatic actor) plays the funny man. We explore De Niro's various problems such as crying when seeing heartwarming AT&T commercials. Lisa Kudrow and the fantastic Joe Viterelli are thrown in for supporting laughs. Kudos to De Niro for doing comedy, he's a talent that rivals some of today's comics. Classic scenes and hillarious lines make this one of the year's best movies. Go see this one with the family.
