After Box Office Shelling, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Is Getting A Sequel


Michael Bay Megan Fox Will Arnett

After the poorly received TMNT movie managed to claw at a box office victory this weekend ($65 million domestic, according to Box Office Mojo), Paramount are expanding their investment in a big way. The studio has just announced that they’re turning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a franchise – appropriate, since that’s director Michael Bay’s specialty these days.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The turtles will return in 2016, but is it a good thing?

Besides the CGI-powered dinosaurs that the movie presents as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, the sequel also stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett. The sequel has been assigned a projected release date of June 3, 2016.

Wise-Cracking 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Trailer Ramps Up Battle With Shredder


Megan Fox Will Arnett Michael Bay

A new full length trailer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has rolled out online, showing the heroic reptiles stepping up their battle with the armoured villain Shredder. The movie stars Megan Fox as newsreader April O'Neil and Will Arnett as cameraman Vernon Fenwick.

The new trailer isn't all that different from the original teasers and retains that dark, brooding edge. However, we get a closer look at William Fichtner's Shredder who continues to reign supreme over New York with the help of his evil foot clan. Whoopi Goldberg also makes an appearance, as Channel 6 News.

Colorful, Chaotic And Chock-Full Of Pop Culture, "The LEGO Movie" Hits Theaters Today


Will Arnett Elizabeth Banks Alison Brie

The Lego Movie doesn’t sound like something that could possibly be good and yet, here it is, defying all expectations and being actually great entertainment. Set up as a dizzying mashup of story and pop culture references (the way most kids actually play with their toys,) this supposedly kids movie is clearly geared equally (if not more) towards adults – not in the “wink wink nudge nudge” way that most kids movies have of peppering the script with the occasional gag for adults, but as a full-fledged, interesting story for grownups that’s bound to keep most kids happy as well.

Lego Gathering Still
To all those who expected this to be terrible: it isn't.

The Lego Movie is set in a dystopian universe run by the evil President Business. Everyone follows a detailed set of instructions on how to live their lives, they buy ridiculously overpriced coffee. The top song in the charts is called Everything Is Awesome, which should tell you hot terrible this world really is. We follow Emmett Brickowski (get it?) a construction worker, who, despite being completely happy with the whole government arrangement, gets dragged into a rebellion plot and put at the head of the Master Buildres’ uprising. There’s a prophecy, you see, and it says he has to do it.

Jared Leto Golden Globes 2014

After the glamour of the essentially irrelevant Golden Globes on Sunday, the biggest movie news this week was the Oscar nominations announcement on Wednesday. As expected, 12 Years a Slave and Gravity got another big awards-season boost, while American Hustle, Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska move into pole position, bumping Inside Llewyn Davis and The Wolf of Wall Street out of the spotlight. For now. For those who need to catch up on these titles click here for 12 Years a SlaveGravityAmerican HustleDallas Buyers ClubNebraskaInside Llewyn Davis and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Awards contenders continue to dominate cinema screens in both America and Britain, although distributors are sneaking smaller films in as alternative programming. In the US, audiences can catch the high school comedy G.B.F. or the British period romance Summer in February, while in the UK offbeat options include Michael Cera in the Chilean road trip Crystal Fairy and the cheeky Penn & Teller documentary Tim's Vermeer.

'The Nut Job' Has Star Power, But Not Much Else


Will Arnett Katherine Heigl

In the age of Disney — back when only one, or less, animated films were released each year — they had better be good. But these days, when everything can be done electronically and studios are pressured into releasing numerous films each year, the quality may be going down.

The Nut Job - Teaser Trailer


Surly is an aptly named, grumpy and uncompassionate squirrel who's desperate to go to any lengths to store enough food for the coming winter. As he struggles to forage for nourishment in the city, he meets the rest of the neighbourhood's fauna including an excitable street rat, a fat mole and some simple-minded gophers - all of whom agree to accompany him on a major heist; the robbery of Maury's Nut Store which is guarded by a highly slobbery bulldog. The store is haven of all the kinds of nuts Surly could ever wish for and offers him an extended period of food stability. Along the way, though, he must learn what it is to work as a team and know the importance of the people around him before his temper pushes his friends away for good.

Netflix Introduces Multiple Viewer Profiles


Jason Bateman Taylor Schilling Will Arnett

Netflix has introduced their new viewer profile feature. The multi profiles (up to five per account) will allow individual viewers their own viewing area which will ensure they are receiving appropriate recommendations.

The tool was introduced in the US on Thursday so the internet provider would better be able to understand their audiences' viewing habits and needs. For instance a child of 6 may enjoy watching a show such as Peppa Pig whereas the 30+ adults of the household may prefer horror films. There's a distinct difference between the sorts of recommendations Netflix would provide for the two very different audiences. This latest application is intended to solve this problem.

The LEGO Movie Trailer Looks Awesome! Could This Be The Most Hilarious Film Ever Assembled?


Chris Pratt Will Ferrell Alison Brie Will Arnett

If you didn't know a LEGO movie was going to be made then get ready to have all your childhood dreams come true as the makers of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs have assemble what could be the greatest animated movie since, well, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (in case you haven't seen it, you really need to).

Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt, who will also be starring in the upcoming Marvel-movie-adaption of Guardians of the Galaxy next year, is voicing the main character, Emmet, who has been chosen by the Master Builders of the LEGO universe as the saviour of a their world against a life-threatening force. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ar teaming up again to film this picture, which will feature a slew of characters from across the LEGO world, including Batman, Superman, ninjas, wizards and more as Emmet tries to save the LEGO world.

So Yeah, There's A LEGO Movie. And Here's The Trailer.


Chris Pratt Will Ferrell Elizabeth Banks Liam Neeson Will Arnett Morgan Freeman Nick Offerman

Warner Brothers have released the first trailer for The LEGO Movie, set to hit theaters on February 7, 2014. The original 3D computer animated story follows the story of Emmet, a clean-cut LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as being the key to saving the world. Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) is drafted into a fellowship of strangers to stop an evil tyrant President Business (Will Ferrell) and his henchman Bad Cop (Liam Neeson) from achieving world domination. Does this have anti-capitalist undertones!?

Of course, Emmet is hilariously underprepared for such an adventure and calls upon his fellow travellers Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), an old mystic (Elizabeth Banks) Batman (Will Arnett), and a swaggering pirate (Nick Offerman) for help. 

It all looks pretty good fun and kids and families should have a whale of a time with this one. Warner executives are probably seeing dollars signs, and plenty of them.

Welcome Back, Arrested Development Stars Will Arnett And Jason Bateman Pick Fight At Premiere


Will Arnett Jason Bateman Arrested Development

Yes, the peeps of Arrested Development are cool on screen and off. Or at least we like to think so. The show will finally be back on screen (in a whole new way) next week and everyone is SO EXCITED. Yes, the caps were absolutely necessary there. After a seven-year absence (has it really been that long?) the Bluth family is back in fifteen all-new episodes, premiering May 26th on Netflix. Not only that, but there is also a rumored movie, also written by the creator, Mitch Hurwitz, picking up where the fourth season ends.

Will Arnett, Arrested Development Premiere
Arnett looked casual and relaxed at the LA premiere.

The premiere for said season was held this week in Los Angeles and, of course, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett had to go and make a scene. It was a funny one though and aptly reminiscent of the show, in which Bateman and Arnett’s characters (Michael and Gob Bluth) are constantly at each other’s throats.

Megan Fox and Will Arnett looked to be getting some serious training on the set of the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie in Manhattan.

The actors were snapped earlier this week enjoying a particularly energetic filming session. Megan, who plays reporter April O'Neil in the new superhero flick, was dressed in super tight work out gear as personal trainer to the stars Harley Pasternak offered her advice on the proper techniques of trampolining. As the day wore on, it started getting pretty hot in New York's Gramercy Park and she was forced to retreat under a parasol for a break from the blistering sun. Will Arnett wasn't seen on a trampoline at all during the shoot, though that didn't stop him trying to pick up a few tips from the trainer as well.

Arrietty Review


Excellent
Based on Mary Norton's classic novel The Borrowers, this film features striking animation and a story that's rich, detailed and full of vividly engaging characters. And it refreshingly refuses to play by Hollywood rules about narrative.

When the sickly young Sho (voiced by Kamiki) goes to live with his aunt (Takeshita) in the country, he spots a tiny girl in the garden, just like his mother remembered seeing when she was young. But housekeeper Haru (Kiki) denies they exist. Indeed, the girl was Arrietty (Shida), who lives with her parents (Miura and Ohtake) in a small home under the floor full of things that are borrowed unnoticed from the house above. But being seen has consequences, and even though Sho is clearly friendly, Arrietty's world is about to change.

Despicable Me Review


Very Good
This bright and silly animated comedy is a remarkably effective combination of deranged humour, nutty slapstick and cute sentimentality. And while there's nothing particularly original, it's hard to imagine anyone not enjoying it.

Gru (voiced by Carell) is a supervillain who has never quite made it. Despite a series of impressive gadgets created with the help of his sidekick Dr Nefario (Brand), he's never managed that one big stunt that would make his name. This is something his mother (Andrews) constantly reminds him. So when young upstart villain Vector (Segel) steals a pyramid, Gru decides to go for his big dream: kidnapping the moon. But his first step involves adopting three orphan girls (Cosgrove, Gaier and Fisher), and they turn out to be rather distracting.

Continue reading: Despicable Me Review

When In Rome Review


Weak
Despite its over-the-top zaniness, this romantic comedy manages to keep us entertained with its starry cast and a nutty plot. If only the filmmakers had resisted the urge to exaggerate both the humour and the sentimentality.

Guggenheim curator Beth (Bell) is organising an important museum event when she has to dash to Rome for her sister's sudden wedding, where she begins to fall for best man Nick (Duhamel), who rescues her from a few embarrassing moments but lets her down romantically. In a funk, she swipes some coins from a fountain then ends up being stalked back in New York by the lovelorn guys (painter Arnett, wannabe model Shepard, street magician Heder and art patron DeVito) who threw them into the water.

G-Force Review


Very Good
This rollicking action romp has all of the chase scenes and car crashes you expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer movie, but a lot more (intentional) laughs thanks to a witty script and a cast of engaging rodents.

Ben and Marcie (Galifianakis and Garner) are horrified when a new FBI manager (Arnett) decides to shut down their project: training rodents and insects to be super spies. But these tiny agents refuse to go quietly, especially as they've just launched a mission to stop a kitchen appliance maker (Nighy) from taking over the world. After being shipped off to a pet store, three guinea pigs Darwin, Juarez and Blaster (voiced by Rockwell, Cruz and Morgan) and their tech-expert mole Speckles (Cage) plot their escape with pet guinea pig Hurley (Favreau).

Arrested Development: Season Two Review


Essential
Season Two is when Arrested Development transcended simply being television's funniest show and became its very best. Its humor became richer and its savage cultural references became slyer and nastier. If the brilliant comedy's first season was enough to forever classify Arrested as a perennial classic, then its second season established the show as one of the great, edgy arbiters of pop cultural significance. No subject was too sacred to be humorously eviscerated by Arrested Development writers, and no uncomfortable human characteristic too dark to be viciously lampooned by their ever-complicated story arcs.

Arrested Development was always an ingenious cross between crisp satire and loopy human cartoon, but season two hit a stride from the start; the season opener, "The One Where Michael Leaves," picks up exactly where the first season left off, and enriches the already-complicated plot with hysterical new wrinkles. Family patriarch George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) has broken out of prison and escaped to Mexico, while well-adjusted middle son and our nobel hero Michael (Jason Batemen) has made a decision to break from the family entirely. As usual, he keeps getting sucked back in for a variety of reasons: with George Sr. on the lam, Michael must prove his innocence in connection with his father's shady business deal with Saddam Hussein (yes, it just keeps getting deeper), and he would also need money to post bail if he were unfairly arrested. But as complicated as Arrested can get, its themes always remain truly simple -- more than any other reason, Michael returns because his family needs him, and Michael himself has a need to be needed.

Continue reading: Arrested Development: Season Two Review

Arrested Development: Season One Review


Essential
Arrested Development is the defining television comedy of the decade. Its influence can be traced through several of the more popular network comedies that debuted since its sad, premature cancellation, most specifically shows like The Office, My Name is Earl, and especially 30 Rock. Created by the now-cult comedy legend Mitch Hurwitz, the show completely redefined what a "sitcom" could and should be -- shot on a single handheld camera, written as a quasi-documentary with a deadpan narrator (a fabulously matter-of-fact Ron Howard), focusing on a family that is barely likable, and telling stories so ridiculous they strain credibility. Yet the show is oddly endearing -- these characters are so fully actualized and the writing so brilliant that every element of the show works seamlessly.

The series made such a mockery of the traditional, homogenized three-camera sitcom with cheap sets and canned laughter, to the point that very few of them even exist anymore. Most TV comedies now chase after the off-the-wall genius of Arrested Development, with its sly, easy-to-miss references to every aspect of current pop culture, and its uncanny knack for testing the devotion (and the memory banks) of its viewers with severely high-risk inside jokes. The show was a bold concept, a sharply radical turn from the ordinary, and the funniest damn program to appear on television before or since its three-season run.

Continue reading: Arrested Development: Season One Review

Monsters Vs. Aliens Review


OK
It's a title that promises much more than it could ever truly deliver. It plays on B-movie fans' wildest dreams but offers them something much less successful. It comes from Dreamworks, which means it will either be completely faithful to its unusual source material (a la Kung Fu Panda's homage to the films of Asian martial arts experts the Shaw brothers) or rely on the tired, post-Shrek formula of animation artistry meshed with tired pop culture quips. So what, exactly, does the latest CG spectacle Monsters vs. Aliens truly have to offer? Sadly, it's a little bit of moviemaking magic surrounded by loads and loads of scripted stupidity.

While planning for her wedding to local newsman Derek Dietl (voice of Paul Rudd), Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is hit by an enormous meteorite containing a mysterious alien element. It instantly causes her to grow in size to gigantic proportions. Naturally, this leads the government, under the director of General W. R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) to capture the gal and take her back to his top secret compound. There, he keeps other so-called "monsters" -- mad scientist turned bug Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie), an aquatic fish man known as the Missing Link (Will Arnett), a blob like biological accident named B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), and Insectosaurus, a building-sized pest with an ear-shattering scream. As America's first line of defense against trouble, the team is put to the test when extraterrestrial tyrant Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) arrives, ready to take over Earth.

Horton Hears A Who! Review


Very Good
Listen closely to Horton Hears a Who! You might be surprised by what you hear. Without reading too deep into this animated adaptation of a Dr. Seuss' classic, one will find strong messages of tolerance and warnings of fear. Horton encourages citizens to question their leaders as it broaches topics of faith and responsibility. It gleefully deflates intolerant religious zealots who eagerly squash what they don't understand. But preachy it isn't; its slogan alone enthralls. "A person's a person, no matter how small."

Theodore Geisel, under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss, often buried messages in his prose and Horton slips many of them just below the surface of this exquisite animated adventure. Faith in the presence of an unseen being dominates most of the story about a curious elephant (Jim Carrey) who believes he hears voices emerging from a speck on the surface of a flower. In fact, the minuscule speck contains the entirety of Whoville, and Horton promises the village's skittish mayor (Steve Carell) that he'll find the community a safe location to rest.

Continue reading: Horton Hears A Who! Review

Semi-Pro Review


Weak
Will Ferrell hasn't run out of sports to exploit in the name of comedy, but if Semi-Pro is any indication, he has run out of original ideas.

The funnyman's stable of petulant and grossly overconfident buffoons grows with the addition of Jackie Moon, owner, coach, and starting power forward for the Flint Tropics, a fictional ABA basketball squad hoping to survive the 1976 merger with the NBA.

Wristcutters: A Love Story Review


Good
Woody Allen has said, "Don't look upon death as an end but as a very effective way of cutting down on your expenses." But it doesn't quite work out that way in Goran Dukic's feature film debut as writer/director, Wristcutters: A Lover Story.

Wristcutters: A Love Story takes place in a barren landscape littered with the detritus of consumer culture, where the unsmiling populace eat grayish junk food, hang around dingy bars and dilapidated apartments, and listen to audio cassettes of Joy Division and Gram Parsons. Welcome to Purgatory, a drab and monotonous dead zone, appearing like a cross between the Mojave Desert and Trenton, New Jersey. This is the depository of all the unhappy folk who have offed themselves in life and are now in limbo, not quite dead but certainly no longer among the living. Dukic tells the tale in a literally deadpan style road movie, resembling a George Romeo version of The Wizard of Oz, filtered through a sardonic sensibility; a quieter, gentler version of the Dylan song "Ain't Talkin'" or Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

Continue reading: Wristcutters: A Love Story Review

The Brothers Solomon Review


Bad
There are moments when time seems to stretch into infinity -- seconds are a lifetime and minutes are an eternity. You usually encounter this phenomenon while sitting in a dentist chair, waiting out that last hour of work, and, on occasion, watching a terrible movie. The Brothers Solomon grinds down time in the same fashion. What feels like a three-hour descent into boredom is only a 90-minute test of might -- pitting you against unlikable characters, horribly written dialogue, and direction that's as painful as a root canal.

The Brothers Solomon is destined to become a movie you find yourself watching on late night cable. As with most "comedies," the laughs are the focus and not the simple plot -- in this case, two home-schooled, degenerate brothers try to find a woman to impregnate in an attempt to fulfill their father's dying wish of having a grandchild. After all, absurd plots make for hilarious scenes, right? No, and the two Wills (Arnett as John and Forte as Dean) suck the life right out of this film with the help of director Bob Odenkirk. You may remember Odenkirk from HBO's Mr. Show with Bob and David or that Seinfeld episode in which Elaine is dating a med student taking his exams and she helps him study in the hopes of dating a doctor. If you watch The Brothers Solomon with your eyes closed (and you are not asleep), you would swear that the stale dialogue spoken in a self-aware, "look at me, I'm saying something funny" tone was coming straight out of Odenkirk's mouth.

Blades Of Glory Review


Very Good
Somewhere along the line, it was theorized that Will Ferrell as an athlete is inherently funny. Fortunately for Blades of Glory, which continues the sports farce oeuvre he began with Kicking and Screaming and Talladega Nights (and will extend with the upcoming Semi-Pro), that assumption appears to be correct.

Blades begins with the backstory of figure skating prodigy Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder). Plucked from an orphanage and given his last name by creepy entrepreneur Darren MacElroy (William Fichtner), Jimmy is groomed to become a champion. His only competition is the exquisitely named Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) who brings the swagger only a self-proclaimed sex addict can to the sport.

Let's Go To Prison Review


Weak
I can attest first-hand that there are certain facts about Let's Go to Prison that might make it seem worthwhile. It was directed by Bob Odenkirk, the "Bob" half of the sometimes brilliant sketch comedy show Mr. Show with Bob & David; it was written by other sketch-comedy veterans, driving forces behind The State and, more recently, Reno 911; and it stars Will Arnett from Arrested Development, a show that was not sketch comedy but still favored by comedy connoisseurs. Other loose-collective comedies of this time period, like Talladega Nights or The 40-Year-Old Virgin, pool comedy's best and brightest to thoroughly entertaining results. Why should this lower-wattage but still talent-heavy film be any different?

Well, Let's Go to Prison also stars Dax Shepard, so maybe that should sound the alarm. But Prison is actually too mediocre to explain away by the presence of one guy from Punk'd. In fact, Shepard isn't a problem at all. He plays John Lyshitski (the film nicks one of the saddest Farrelly brothers trademarks -- non-jokes where the very presence of the S-word functions as a de facto punchline), a career petty criminal plagued by his own ineptitude and a hardass judge. Before he can get revenge, the judge dies -- so naturally he frames the judge's spoiled son, Nelson Biederman IV (Arnett), and gets himself thrown back in jail, pretending to befriend Biederman but tormenting him behind his back.

Arrested Development: Season Three Review


Extraordinary
The only real flaw in the third season of Mitch Hurwitz's flat-out brilliant sitcom Arrested Development is its unfortunate abbreviation. Fox delighted the show's fan base with a surprise pickup at the end of its second season, and then, apparently feeling remorseful about appeasing any segment of its audience not interested in American Idol, took it back, as far as they could; season three runs only 13 episodes, rather than the standard 22. Needless to say, there will be no season four.

Of course, this being Arrested Development and all, there are more laughs in those 13 episodes than a lifetime of just about any another live-action show. Hurwitz's show chronicles the twists and turns of the formerly wealthy, currently imperiled (and morally impaired) Bluth family, led by good son Michael (Jason Bateman). The show moves like a soap opera, cramming an hour's worth of bizarre plots into 20 minutes or so. Season three contains the most ambitious story arc of the show's run, wherein lovelorn Michael finds a new relationship with Rita (guest star Charlize Theron, appearing in five of the baker's dozen), a charming English woman harboring a deep secret. You may guess the twist ahead of the climactic revelation, but even if you do, it's just as much fun to notice the many clues that start to seem hilariously obvious.

R.V. Review


OK
Bob Munro (Robin Williams) has reached a difficult intersection on the road of life. Once, he played hero to his daughter Cassie (Joanna "JoJo" Levesque). Now she's an iPod-sporting, disgruntled teenager who'd rather hang with Osama bin Laden than dear old dad. Bob seeks support from wife Jamie (Cheryl Hines) and son Carl (Josh Hutcherson), though his efforts are met by blank stares.

Bob's work situation isn't much better. As the former golden employee inches closer to retirement, he's forced to look over his shoulder at the younger, hungrier competition eager to please a selfish, credit-hogging boss (Will Arnett). Bob seeks support from his coworkers, and finds those familiar blank stares.

Ice Age: The Meltdown Review


Excellent
I hated Ice Age. The prehistoric road-trip comedy arrived in theaters on the heels of the superior Shrek and paled in comparison. Even judged on its own merits, Age moved like a two-ton glacier, suffered from a by-the-numbers screenplay that failed to take one risk, and overdosed on sadistic slapstick humor last utilized by the animators of Tom and Jerry.

Needless to say, it went on to gross more than $176 million at the box office. A sequel was inevitable, and thanks to my chosen profession, unavoidable. I was prepared for the worst.

Monster-in-Law Review


Good
Somebody help me - I'm turning into Roger Ebert. The household film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times typically grades on a curve when it comes to Jennifer Lopez and her on-screen endeavors, bestowing favorable grades on films that colleagues (and crowds) have panned. Granted, every critic is entitled to their opinion, but Ebert's grades for Jersey Girl (three stars), The Cell (a perfect four stars) and Anaconda (three-and-a-half stars) seem generous to a fault.

I'm nowhere near ready to join Mr. Ebert on the J-Lo bandwagon (with her entourage, there might not be room), but I will defend the starlet's turn in Monster-In-Law. The film embraces the traditional romantic comedy formula Lopez routinely gravitates toward, but it's skillfully guided to a predetermined finish by director Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde), who kneads the doughy concoction like a prize-winning baker preparing a four-layer cake.

Southie Review


Bad
Rose McGowan? Thumbs up! Donnie Wahlberg? Thumbs way down. This shallow, vapid tale about a minor south Boston gang rivalry gets points for the cuties but thanks to a plot that is at turns utterly incomprehensible and breathtakingly stupid Southie is nigh unwatchable. Nice try with the Boston accents, and I'm giving Southie half a star for one of the best lines of dialogue in recent memory: "Take your panties and get outta here!" Does art imitate life or what!?

Monster-In-Law Review


Weak
Since it's propped up by most of the same jokes and plotdevices as any other comedy about obnoxious in-laws ("Meetthe Parents," "TheIn-Laws," "MickeyBlue Eyes"), there's really only one questionto answer about "Monster-in-Law": Is it worth 10 bucks to watchJennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda retread the same sitcom territory recentlytrampled twice by Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro?

The short answer is "No."

But while hardly original and certainly predictable, "Monster-in-Law"does have some good chuckles -- although few of them come from Lopez, whogives a shrug-worthy performance as an off-the-shelf romantic-comedy heroine,tailored with all the sweetly quirky foibles that Hollywood thinks willmake gorgeous actresses seem like everyday gals who can't find a man.

In this case Lopez plays a struggling artist and officetemp with a dozen part-time jobs (dog walker, receptionist, caterer), whononetheless has her own roomy, sunny, well-decorated beachfront apartmentin Venice, California.
