Vacancy

April 20, 2007
"Vacancy" follows a time old formula-boy and girl get lost on back roads, have car trouble, and soon find their lives in peril. The film had surprisingly little blood and most violence was shown on a small television screen when the couple in peril sees others who have met a similar fate. The [...]

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

Uma Thurman also adds some nuances and is believable as a jealous woman who becomes a scorned woman and takes her superhero powers out on her former boyfriend Matt (Wilson). [...]

Set in WWII-era Mississippi, the film has a Norman Rockwell ambiance, gentle enough for little ones, but also involving enough for older kids and their parents. Funny, yet, poignant, My Dog Skip reminds us of what a great gift man’s best friend really is. Tenaciously loyal, indomitably forgiving, [...]

Committed

April 28, 2000
Sadly, the concept of permanence in marriage is ripe for parody in a land where 50% of newlyweds wind up in divorce court. Ultimately, the film is not about staying committed, but about knowing when to let go. The abusive language, which consists of nearly 50 obscenities and profanities, and the [...]
