Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael are back in full force and ready to protect their beloved home town of Manhattan, this time the brothers are equipped with their fully loaded Tartaruga wagon and nothing will stop them from fighting the bad guys they face, in their own words: "We're just four brothers who hate bullies and love this city."

Elvis & Nixon Trailer


Who would've thought that Elvis and Richard Nixon would become allies? When Elvis sporadically showed up at The White House, it was completely unexpected. He was the biggest pop star in the world and there he was, at the gates of The White House unannounced.

Under the advice of one of his top aides, Nixon is a talked into meeting with The King Of Pop. Nixon needed a boost in popularity and for him to be seen as becoming friends with America's most loved star would be a perfect photo op for The President.

Elvis is accepted and taken into the building; him and his security sidekicks are searched and relieved of their firearms. Whilst speaking with Egil Krogh, Elvis is run through a few of the certain White House protocols that one must follow on meeting the president, protocols Elvis is quick to cast aside. The reason behind this meeting was kept entirely secret, but now we'll learn about Elvis' aspirations to take on a new mission unlike anything he's ever done before.

Made For Just $15 Million, 'Bad Grandpa' Storms Box-Office With $32 Million


Johnny Knoxville

Johnny Knoxville's comedy Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa has topped the U.S. box office with $32 million - more than double its production budget. Made for just $15 million, the raunchy comedy about an 86-year-old and his 8-year-old grandson, topped Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity to finish the weekend as America's biggest movie.

Bad Grandpa

The space movie took a further $20.3 million to finish second, while Tom Hanks' hostage drama Captain Phillips took third with $11.8 million. Ridley Scott's The Counselor - which was unexpectedly panned by critics - finished fourth with just $8 million, one of the worst ever openings for a Ridley Scott movie, according to BBC News.

Does 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' Have What It Takes To Knock 'Gravity' From The Box Office Top Spot?


Johnny Knoxville

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will go head to head with the immensely popular and successful Gravity this weekend, with Johnny Knoxville and co. standing the best chance of ending the space spectacle's domination of the October box office. Gravity has held on to the top spot at the box office for the past three weeks, and other than Captain Phillips it hasn't really had any viable competition to knock it of it's perch. Bad Grandpa looks set to tip the balance of power in their favour though.

Bad Grandpa
The film has been given a mixed reception so far

The best way to describe Bad Grandpa would be as low brow comedy, performed and presented in a high brow manner. Fans of Jackass won't be disappointed at the sheer magnitude of gross-out pranks and hilarious stunts, and the Jackass boys have managed to once again create a movie that more of a modern-day Three Stooges than it is a compilation of idiots acting idiotically. But unlike any previous Jackass films, Bad Grandpa will follow some kind of plot - one based around the two central characters; octogenarian Irving Zisman (Knoxville) and his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll). Of course, there will still be plenty of idiotic behaviour taking place throughout the film.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Back! With The Last Stand


Arnold Schwarzenegger Johnny Knoxville

Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his long awaited return as a leading man in The Last Stand, proving he is a man of his word. He did say he'd be back.

The former Governor of California hasn't appeared in a starring role since 2003's 'Terminator' sequel Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, in which he resurrected his most famous role and not for the last time either. The 65-year-old actor may have had a considerable amount of time out on the sidelines of Hollywood, but that doesn't mean his lost an ounce of his famous Austrian charm that has endeared him to audiences over the decades.

Whilst this film may be called The Last Stand, this is by no means Arnie's last stand in the movies and his most recent foray in front of the camera has shown us that Hollywood have missed their go-to beefcake over the past decade, because no one can do what Arnold does. With Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville helping out, as well as some lesser known actors and actresses (Luis Guzman, Jaimie Alexander, Rodrigo Santoro and Zach Gilford), the film is very much Arnold's show. Had Schwarzenegger not taken up the staring role then it is pretty reasonable to assume that this would be quite an unrespectable release, probably shipping straight to DVD - Arnold does this kind of stuff with movies though so its to be expected.

Hot Tickets! US Movie Releases: Jessica Chastain Stars In Creepy Thriller 'Mama,' Arnie Makes A Comeback In 'The Last Stand,' Mark Wahlberg's 'Broken City' Is A Doozy


Jessica Chastain Benicio Del Toro Arnold Schwarzenegger Johnny Knoxville Forest Whitaker Mark Wahlberg Russell Crowe Catherine Zeta Jones Daniel Radcliffe Elizabeth Olsen Ben Foster

With Jessica Chastain nominated for an Oscar for her role in Zero Dark Thirty. Her presence in Mama, alone, should be enough to generate interest in Guillermo Del Toro’s latest supernatural thriller. Anyone expecting a Zero Dark Thirty-style action drama, though, will be sorely disappointed. And possibly a little scared.

Chastain plays the role of Annabel, a woman who welcomes her partner’s abandoned nieces into her home. They are traumatised and clearly disturbed. Annabel seems unsure whether or not she’s ready to look after them. Little does she know, however, that she’s opened the doors of her home to more than just the two young girls, who disappeared the day that their mother was murdered by their father. More of a psychological horror than a guts-n-gore kind of movie, del Toro knows exactly how to get inside the viewer’s mind and linger there, with his superb use of special effects and the kind of suspense tactics that will require the surgical removal of your fingers from the cinema seat by the time the movie’s over.

“Mama succeeds in scaring the wits out of us and leaving some lingering, deeply creepy images ...” Richard Roeper – Chicago Sun-Times

Arnold Schwarzenegger Reveals His Sidekick Criteria


Arnold Schwarzenegger Johnny Knoxville

Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand represents a welcome return the action genre's finest sons. The inclusion of Jonny Knoxville struck fans as a bit odd, but what does it actually take to be Arnie's sidekick? The big man's let us know. 

"The important thing is that you click, that he is as enthusiastic about the mission," Schwarzenegger told MTV News. "He has a different approach to how he accomplishes the same goal as I have. I'm a very disciplined law-enforcement guy, and he's kind of a lunatic," he added, of Knoxville's character. "I've been dying to be on the force my whole life, but I'm a little too mercurial to be included," Knoxville added. "It was the greatest day of my life when I was asked to join the force."

But, you're asking desperately, what the hell do I have to do to be starring alongside the man in the film!? Well not to worry, you just have to fill this certain criteria, and you're in. "All you have to do is gain 50 pounds of muscles, gain a little bit in height and in your acting [abilities]," he advised. "Be able to do the stunts, throw yourself around, be able to fall off buildings, be able to be shot at, all these kinds of things."

Movie 43 Trailer


If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.

With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

Directed by : Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, Jonathan van Tulleken

Hot Tickets! This Weekend's US Movie Releases: Skyfall, Lincoln, In Their Skin, Nature Calls


Daniel Craig Sam Mendes Daniel Day Lewis Joaquin Phoenix Selma Blair Joshua Close James D'Arcy Johnny Knoxville Patton Oswalt

With the drama and devastation that befell the East Coast of America, with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy last week, US movie fans seem to have opted for the feel-good factor with their box office choices. Wreck It Ralph currently sits atop the US Box Office chart but the generation-spanning animation should prepare to be ousted this week, with the release of two major players: Skyfall and Lincoln.

Skyfall has already been hailed as the best Bond movie ever. Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall marks the 50th anniversary of Bond movies and has already proved to be a box office sensation in the UK and Europe. There’s a question mark hanging over how much longer Daniel Craig will play Bond, which is only adding to the sense of urgency in getting to the movie theaters to check out Skyfall.

Fun Size Review


Bad

You know you're in trouble when a madcap comedy is unable to even raise a smile. And it's worse when it strains to include a sentimentally emotional subplot without grounding anything in believable characters or situations. All that's left is a lot of corny toilet humour and eye-rollingly limp schmaltz. Even a decent cast can't rescue this one.

It all happens on one Halloween night in Ohio, when brainy 18-year-old Wren (Justice) and her oversexed pal April (Levy) plan to attend the party of the year hosted by the school hottie. But Wren's mother (Handler) runs off to her own party, leaving Wren in charge of her mischievous 8-year-old brother Albert (Nicoll), who hasn't spoken a word since their father died a year earlier. And Albert quickly ditches Wren, running off for an adventure with a lovelorn convenience store employee (Middleditch). To find him, Wren gets help from the nerdy Roosevelt (Mann), who has a crush on her.

The premise has potential, blending Adventures in Babysitting and Home Alone along with a bit of emotional subtext. But the screenwriters never make anything of it, instead indulging in startlingly unfunny slapstick, jokes about paedophilia and a sappy streak of half-baked sentiment. All of which means that the filmmakers waste their solid cast at every turn. Justice and Levy make an enjoyable if unlikely duo, while Nicholl is full of unpredictable energy. But the filmmakers manage to subdue the usually irrepressible Handler in a badly underdeveloped role that's still the most interesting thing in the film.

Epic Trailer


Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

The Last Stand Trailer


Ray Owens is a police sheriff whose major crime fighting days are all but over when he swaps his job in the LAPD combating drug crimes for the much less strenuous post in the quite town of Sommerton Junction on the Mexican border, after a botched drugs operation left him feeling defeated when his friend and colleague ended up crippled. His comfort in his new post is challenged all too soon when the most formidable drug tycoon in the western world, Gabriel Cortez, slips from the clutches of the FBI. Cortez and his ruthless army head towards the Mexican border in Sommerton Junction at 250 miles per hour in a deadly modified Corvette ZR1 with a hostage, mercilessly shooting at the police officers attempting to arrest them and easily sweeping police cars out of their way. They are pursued by the entire law enforcement of America led by Agent John Bannister, though Owens is unwilling to bring his team into the fight at first, feeling not the officer he used to be. His reluctance becomes irrelevant anyway when he is told to take a backseat due to the lack of experience of his team; however Owens soon changes his mind and bands his modest taskforce together to forcibly take on the fierce drug gang themselves.

It appears Wren's only problem is to work out what her costume's going to be; that is until she's about to leave the house and her mother drops the bombshell that she's to babysit for her eccentric younger brother Albert while he goes Trick-or-Treating dressed as Spider Man. As if things weren't bad enough, while Wren and April are moping about missing the party, Albert disappears on his own. Anxious that her mother will find out she's been neglecting her responsibilities, Wren and April set out on a frantic search for Albert; who is being used an accessory by a man who has set out to avenge a broken heart; whilst swindling 'nerds' and suffering public humiliation along the way.

Lemmy Review


Extraordinary
'Lemmy' is the biographical documentary film of one Ian Kilmister, legendary rock'n'roller and leader of Motorhead. Apparently 2 years in the making the film runs the whole gamut charting his early days in North Wales, hitchhiking to The Cavern to see The Beatles through to moving to London to roadie for Jimi Hendrix. From then he joined Hawkwind and later went on to form Motorhead and concludes with Lemmy in his current abode in Los Angeles where he now resides and has done for several years.

Despite making some of the most uncompromising music of the last 30 years, Motorhead for some strange reason, cross all boundaries. This is undoubtedly down to the enduring appeal of Lemmy - a man who's stuck to his guns and done things on his own terms to the point where he has just ended up being accepted.

Which gives credence to the fact that If you spend long enough doing something and which such conviction, people will eventually come round to your way of thinking. As a rock 'n' roll icon his influence has touched almost everyone who is anyone and the most surprising thing of all about this documentary is the sheer breadth of people who have fallen under his influence. The usual rock crowd is to be expected. Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Metallica etc but its appearances of others such as Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash), Marky Ramone (The Ramones) and Billy Bob Thornton that most surprise.

Jackass 3D Review


OK
The knuckleheads are back with another collection of random acts of idiocy, this time with a 3D camera at their disposal. The result is slightly more controlled than before, but just as stupid.

Once again, the film jumps aimlessly from one clip to the next, hoping we find physical injury, constant laddish taunting and obsession with genitalia hilarious. To be honest, some of it is very funny, mainly because we can't believe that an adult would do something so stupid. Many of the gags involve throwing themselves into objects (or vice versa) like a live-action Road Runner cartoon with added bodily fluids. They have rather a lot of fun in the blast area of a massive jet engine and put themselves in jeopardy from some very large animals. One of the more outrageous bits involves playing tetherball with an angry beehive.

Jackass: Number Two Review


Good
The sequel to Jackass: The Movie needs no special introduction. Anyone familiar with the classic MTV series that spawned the movies knows exactly what they're in for: 90 chaotic minutes featuring a bunch of idiots performing immoral and repulsive rituals. This sequel promises to be more absurd and grotesque than we've seen before, as if everything prior was merely child's play.

Does Jackass: Number Two live up to its promise? You bet it does, though that may not necessarily be a good thing. My unscientific running tally of the scenarios gives the absurd a slight edge over the tedious. The stunts that work best -- "Butt Chug," "How to Milk a Horse," and "Terror Taxi" -- are insanely funny from beginning to end. Often, these jokes are taken beyond their logical end to achieve an entirely new degree of humor or vulgarity. Equally commendable are several stunts like "The Switcharoo" that slowly build tensions toward highly rewarding climaxes.

The Ringer Review


Weak
A recent Associated Press story detailed how Peter and Bobby Farrelly gave the Special Olympics full script approval for The Ringer, their new comedy about a well-intentioned loser (Johnny Knoxville) who impersonates a mentally challenged person in order to win the Special Olympics and score some much-needed cash.

"I wanted this movie out there," Peter Farrelly told the AP. "It's very funny, but I also saw the potential for changing people's perceptions of people with intellectual disabilities."

A Dirty Shame Review


Excellent
Ultra-trashy provocateur John Waters returns to crude, campy form with A Dirty Shame, a risqué, ribald NC-17 sex-a-thon that finds the iconoclastic director reveling in his most beloved vices. The story of a frigid housewife who, because of an accidental head injury, becomes indoctrinated into a gang of raging sex addicts, Waters' ultra-vulgar comedy about fornicating buffoons and boobs is both a sarcastic rebuke to the traditional notion of "family values" and a heartfelt paean to Baltimore's freakish misfit population. Barely resembling the director's exasperatingly toothless Pecker and half-baked Cecil B. DeMented, the film - a delirious explosion of genitalia jokiness and raunchy social satire that's coated in an incongruous sheen of '50s-era movie mannerisms - is as nasty as it wants to be.

Sylvia Stickles (Tracey Ullman) is a grumpy, prudish convenience store employee who can't stand her husband Vaughn's (Chris Isaak) sexual advances and is ashamed of her stripper daughter Caprice's (Selma Blair) insanely enormous fake breasts, which the young harlot willingly displays (at least, before being put under house arrest for indecent exposure) down at the local biker bar under the stage name "Ursula Udders." Sylvia is disgusted by the rampant public displays of affection infecting her quiet town, yet after suffering a concussion, a strapping mechanic named Ray-Ray (Johnny Knoxville) does some voodoo on her libido, transforming Sylvia into an unhinged sex-aholic destined - as the Christ-like Ray-Ray preaches to his choir of fetishistic cohorts - to discover a truly unique new sexual act. With the rallying cry "Let's Go Sexin'!", Sylvia and Ray-Ray orchestrate a debauched sexual revolution against the square "Neuters" who - led by Sylvia's mother Big Ethel (Suzanne Shepherd) and Marge the Neuter (Waters regular Mink Stole) - have organized a counter-coalition of the "moral," and Waters, through the sheer abundance of explicit material on display, goes for the jugular (or somewhere slightly lower) in his attempt to appall and offend.

Continue reading: A Dirty Shame Review

Lords Of Dogtown Review


Very Good
Catherine Hardwicke's Lords of Dogtown tells virtually the same story recounted by Stacy Peralta's 2001 documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, which autobiographically detailed his and his friends' teen years as pioneers of modern skateboard culture. Peralta, along with buddies Tony Alva and Jay Adams, were hardcore surfers from the grimy "Dogtown" of Venice, California, and with the help of some cutting-edge urethane wheels and legendary surfboard sculptor Skip Engblom - whose Zephyr store financed their original skate team, and bestowed them with the nickname "Z-Boys" - the brash trio became overnight icons for a new asphalt-grinding youth movement that championed experimentation and insolence in equal measures. Their rags-to-riches story is one in which triumph was achieved from go-for-broke rebelliousness, and thus stands as the complementary flip-side to Hardwicke's girls-gone-wild Thirteen, which illustrated the audacious and often-injurious lengths to which kids will go for attention, popularity and defiant thrills.

During the height of California's suffocating drought in the mid-1970s, quiet, long-haired Peralta (Elephant's John Robinson), cocky Alva (Raising Victor Vargas' Victor Rasuk), and self-destructive Adams (Emile Hirsch) began transferring their ocean-skimming techniques to the city's blacktop and empty swimming pools, resulting in an almost instantaneous phenomenon that thrust them onto the covers of magazines, into lucrative endorsement contracts, and onto the set of Charlie's Angels. Hardwicke's film (written by Peralta) presents this real-life tale with a mixture of exuberance and cautionary wariness, depicting the benefits (sex, money, fame) and pitfalls (jealousy, clashes over girls, obligations to their less-than-supportive parents) of these adolescents' sudden rise to superstardom. Thanks to Elliot Davis' bleached-out, nostalgically hazy cinematography (which mirrors the pulverizing propulsion of street skating by twirling, spinning and sticking low to the ground) and liberal use of thunderous '70s tunes by Hendrix and Sabbath, Hardwicke's period piece has a groovy, hard-charging dynamism. And as in her last film, the director - via Peralta and Adams' rivalry over Alva's sister Kathy (Nikki Reed) and Adams' difficulties at home with his irresponsible mom (Rebecca De Mornay) - laces such heady, sun-dappled optimism with an undercurrent of looming menace.

The Dukes Of Hazzard Review


Weak
I have no problem admitting that the main reason I wanted to review The Dukes of Hazzard was to see Jessica Simpson strutting her stuff in some ass-cheek-hugging short shorts. Yummy! Much of the film's early buzz has been on Simpson's big screen debut as bombshell Daisy Duke. Yet what's been lost amongst all the discussions of Simpson's rump are the even bigger questions surrounding the reasons for reviving this small, unsubstantial television relic from the '80s that few of us remember.

Now, I know I'm not the only one seeing Hazzard because of Simpson, and quite frankly, she's the film's biggest draw. This is her Crossroads. But let me caution that while you'll come to see Simpson, it's really the zoom-zoom of that little orange 1969 Dodge Charger that will make you stay. When the film is all said and done, I'm guessing that you'll leave the theater wondering what all the fuss over Simpson was about to begin with.

Men In Black II Review


Good
In an interview, director Barry Sonnenfeld told me about four years ago that he didn't want to make another Men in Black. The studio wanted it, he said, but he just wasn't interested. What a difference Wild Wild West and Big Trouble will make to your choice of film projects!

And so Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return to their black suits in one of the most uninspired sequels in recent memory, going through the motions while spouting one-liners en route to encounters with familiar characters at the familiar locations which made the original Men in Black so endearing.

Jackass: The Movie Review


Very Good
Well that was an experience.

I'm three hours out of Jackass and I still don't know what to think. I know I didn't get the idea of Jackass going into the movie, and after some pontification I now think I know what the deal is... but still can't be sure. Three hours out and the only two things I know are that Jackass doesn't have a point and maybe, just maybe, that is the point.

Grand Theft Parsons Review


OK
The resounding message of Grand Theft Parsons, if there is one, seems to be that hicks are big on honor. Really big on honor. Apparently, a hick should honor his word to a friend in any way possible, up to and including stealing the body of a country musician from Los Angeles airport in the back of a yellow hearse with a yin-yang sign on it (and with the name of Bertha) and then taking said body to be torched in the California desert.

It's not my place to pass judgment on the burial rights of musicians (just on the movies made about the incident), but Grand Theft Parsons has one of the most sitcom like plots I've seen in an impendent movie in a long time. While a studio flick have might have taken such a shtick for slapstick and made it dumbly funny, Grand Theft Parsons goes down the road of the metaphysical, using a corpse in a car as an excuse for a surreal waxing philosophical on hicks, bodies, and rock and roll.

Walking Tall (2004) Review


Good
Ironically, Walking Tall runs short. Credits included, the testosterone opera two-fists its way through 77 sweat-soaked minutes, and it's just enough. You won't be hungry for seconds by the time the last baddie hits the floor, but you won't be checking your watch repeatedly, either.

Let's not sugarcoat it. Tall remains a one-note genre picture specifically tailored to its shining star - The Rock. For what it is, though, Tall is quite good. It has fun with its limitations. It boasts strong fight choreography and interesting direction by Kevin Bray, who keeps the spotlight on its charismatic and camera-friendly leading man.

Life Without Dick Review


Good
Cute and quirky hitman/romance/comedy Life Without Dick has current it-girl Sarah Jessica Parker proving again that her acting range is pretty limited and Harry Connick Jr. showing that even if he does have some acting chops he still likes to sing at least one song in every movie he's in. The plot is complicated -- with Parker accidentally killing her boyfriend (Johnny Knoxville, ugh) after mistakenly assuming he's cheating on her. An incompetent hitman (Connick) falls in love with her, eventually figuring out she's a much better hit-person than he is. Silly but fun and quite watchable.

Johnny Knoxville May Have Kissed Jessica Simpson According To Lie-Detector Test


Johnny Knoxville Jessica Simpson Howard Stern

Johnny Knoxville has been accused of engaging in a relationship with Jessica Simpson, when the 'Jackass' star took a live lie-detector test while on-air for a radio interview on 3rd August 2005. Despite both the Simpson and Knoxville being married to other people, it has been rumoured for a long time that they had a relationship during filming for 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.

Knoxville was amazed by his arrival on Howard Stern's radio interview, when he was asked to take a lie detector test, with questions suddenly including whether or not he had sex with Simpson, before being asked if they had ever kissed, and finally if he had ever thought about her while he was "pleasuring himself".

The Dukes Of Hazzard Review


Weak
Once the largely inept and uncouth cast shuts the heckup (i.e. stops trying to act) and starts burnin' rubber and wreckin' cars,there's some good ol' fun to be had in the slipshod big-screen rehash of"The Dukes of Hazzard."

But the first hour of the movie is a punishing parade ofprotracted establishing, colorless characters and painful performancesthat make the picture's amusingly harebrained TV inspiration look likesophisticated action-comedy by comparison.

Seann William Scott (Stiffler from "AmericanPie") and Johnny Knoxville (MTV's "Jackass")play moonshine-running country cousins Bo and Luke Duke -- although theyhave little in common with the sexy charmers in cowboy hats and sparklingsmiles created so charismatically by John Schneider and Tom Wopat in 1979.Scott and Knoxville have re-imagined the characters as the Appalachianequivalent of frat boys, and their acting consists mostly of screaming"woo-hoo!" as they drive around dirt roads at 80 mph.

But at least these two are good for the occasional lowbrowlaugh. Candy-pop "singer" and professional celebrity JessicaSimpson steps into Catherine Bach's butt-hugging cut-off Levi's as sexpotkin Daisy Duke, and she's such a catastrophe as an actress that every timeshe opens her Barbie-doll mouth, just her fake Georgia drawl is enoughto make your ears bleed -- never mind her fumbling dialogue. Knowing whereher assets lie, writer-director Jay Chandrasekhar ("Club Dread,""Super Troopers") does his best to keep Simpson as silent andscantily clad as possible. But even in a bikini, she seems rigid and plastic.

Lords Of Dogtown Review


Weak
"Lords of Dogtown" is a fictionalized accountof the birth of modern skateboarding that doesn't have half the spontaneityand maverick spirit of the vivid, kinetic, crowd-pleasing documentary thatinspired it.

2002's "Dogtownand Z-Boys" (now available in an excellentDVD) was an adrenaline-rush history of the Zephyr Skateboarding Team, adaredevil band of teenage surf bums who were the first to take wave-ridingmoves to the streets and empty swimming pools of drought-stricken SantaMonica in the early 1970s.

This handful of young turks (oneof whom became the director of that film andthe writer of this one) invented the board-gripping, back-scratching, wall-climbingstyle that launched the entire rebel culture of extreme sports -- but youwouldn't know it from "Lords of Dogtown," which concerns itselfmore with fabricated love triangles, unhappy home lives and rivalries thatformed when fame came calling.

While the performances of the young cast members -- keyZ-Boys are played by John Robinson from "Elephant,"Emile Hirsch from "TheGirl Next Door" and Victor Rasuk from "RaisingVictor Vargas" -- are multifaceted, they sometimes have the under-rehearsedfeel of a bawdier after-school special. Or maybe that's just the clumsyexpository dialogue: "Hey, I think we should start a skateboard team,man," says one shirtless, long-haired dude to another. "There'smoney in this!"

A Dirty Shame Review


Good

Tracey Ullman is so perfectly attuned to John Waters' brand of lasciviously trashy comedy, it's a wonder that she hasn't worked before for the shamelessly silly provocateur.

In the uproarious "A Dirty Shame," the writer-director lets the caustic comedienne cut loose as Sylvia Stickles, a frigid, uptight working-class suburbanite who becomes an insatiable sex maniac after getting bonked on the noggin in a car accident.

After shocking her hitherto frustrated husband (played by singer Chris Isaak) with tongue-wiggling come-ons and liberating her trampy, triple-Z-cup stripper daughter (played with bimbonic irony by real-life A-cup Selma Blair) from the bedroom where she'd been padlocked away "for her own good," Sylvia joins other concussion-born libertines as a disciple of a self-proclaimed sexual evangelist (amusingly uncouth Johnny Knoxville). All of this helps set the stage for an absurdist battle against a band of spitefully self-righteous local prudes for the soul of their Baltimore neighborhood.
