Fading Gigolo Trailer


Strapped for cash, handsome but middle-aged bookshop worker Fioravante decides to accept an offer of an unusual job from his friend Murray, who recently had a brainwave after his dermatologist and her friend admitted to wanting a new sexual experience with a stranger. Murray charged them a huge $1,000, offering the modest Fioravante the chance to be a male escort for a large paycheque while keeping a portion himself. After realising that he quite enjoys the experience of worshipping single and lonely women in the bedroom, Fioravante continues his exploits with Murray and ends up meeting a particularly shy woman named Avigal. Consumed by loneliness, Avigal seeks comfort and recognition, but just how deep does her solitude go?

Romance & Cigarettes Review


Weak
John Turturro's dream project Romance & Cigarettes is a gutter-style jukebox musical with chutzpah to spare and which doesn't know when to quit. It's all here: Singing garbagemen! Catfight in a SoHo lingerie store! Hot-to-trot Kate Winslet as a scorchingly foul-mouthed Irish hussy. Toe-tapping Christopher Walken in full strutting peacock mode, driving an old Detroit beater with a license plate reading "BoDiddley." A wife screaming at her husband, recently discovered cheating, "I trim your nose hair!" Family, infidelity, and a basketful of pop tunes for everyone to sing along to -- Ute Lemper to Connie Francis to Bruce Springsteen to James Brown to Tom Jones to....

Somewhere in all Turturro's chaos is a story about Nick Murder (James Gandolfini), a blue-collar schlub with a stolid wife, Kitty (Susan Sarandon), and a trio of slightly cracked daughters -- Constance, Baby, and Rosebud (Mary-Louise Parker, Aida Turturro, and Mandy Moore, respectively) -- who function partially as a junior set of Furies but are mostly there to bash out songs in the backyard as part of the three-piece bubblegum garage band they've formed. In short: Nick's a two-timing bastard who's stepping out on the wife with Tula (the previously mentioned Irish hussy), a fact Kitty doesn't take to overly well, and numerous friends and family get dragged into their scuffle and forcing everyone to occasionally bust out in song.

True Love Review


Weak
Nancy Savoca's tale of a nuptials-planning that looks doomed from the start isn't nearly as much fun as Dogfight, her best and best-known work. Ultimately, much-needed humor is displaced by coarse language, which doesn't serve to make a would-be romantic comedy very funny. Tepid at best.

Denise Calls Up Review


Good
I finally had a chance to see Denise Calls Up after it had pretty much made its art-house rounds, but I thought I'd write a short review anyway.

The one-joke premise is this: seven friends in New York basically live their lives without ever really meeting. Instead, they talk on the phone. Dates are set, parties are planned, sex is had, even children are born -- but no one is there, in the physical sense.

The 24 Hour Woman Review


OK
Rosie Perez annoys less than usual in this waste of celluloid, about a TV producer so driven, even a pregnancy won't stop her! Flat and limp for a supposed comedy, The 24 Hour Woman should have quit after 20 minutes.

Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles Review


Weak
It's hard to watch your favorite childhood movie characters grow up and try to capitalize on the same, tired dog and pony show. Alas, Hollywood has turned the recycler on full steam, sending Aussie icon Paul Hogan back into celluloid with an empty third installment of the "Crocodile" Dundee saga: Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles.

Not much has come from Hogan since his days as Mick "Crocodile" Dundee. He has written and starred in many forgettable films over the past decade -- stuff like Almost an Angel, Lighting Jack, and Flipper -- and has even converted his Crocodile Dundee role into a spokesman for the Subaru Outback. Did anyone want or need another fish-out-of-water story about a hillbilly croc hunter trying to adapt to Big City life? With the keys to his Outback in hand, Hogan is back in the trademark hat, dishing out another tale of the simple Australian man mingling with that kooky, extravagant, and pompous American culture.

Jaded Review


Bad
One of the most atrocious "thrillers" in recent memory, Jaded stars a buxom Carla Gugino as the victim of a brutal rape -- committed by two women!!! Ill-conceived from the very beginning (from casting Aida Turturro as a "tough" detective and Christopher McDonald as a wacky bar owner), the film actually tries to make its central message the issue that legal "rape" can't occur between two women -- it's "sodomy" instead. A movie about semantics? Never mind the cheesecake, I'm gonna pass on this one. Makes the similar (and bad) Body Shots look like a masterpiece.

Crocodile Dundee In L.A. Review


Zero

Somebody at Paramount Pictures must have owed Paul Hogan a humongous favor to green-light "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles." Before even seeing the movie, I could have told you it's 15 years too late for another sequel in this series.

But that's the least of the problems with this lifeless, asinine, staggeringly inept mess of haggard franchise gags, out-of-date pop culture japes and Hollywood backlot antics that are less realistic than the tour at Universal Studios.

The obscenely contrived plot follows Mick Dundee, girlfriend Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski) and their son Mikey (Serge Cockburn) to L.A. as Sue takes over the local newsroom of her dad's newspaper chain. The previous bureau chief died suspiciously while poking around the finances of a B-grade studio that cranks out money-losing action flicks for Eastern Europe. Could all these mean-looking toughs in ponytails and shark skin suits be -- oh, I don't know -- crooked?
