Eastwood Daughter's Wedding: Alison Marries TV Sculptor In California


Clint Eastwood Alison Eastwood

Clint Eastwood daughter's wedding took place at Saddlepeak Lodge in California this weekend, with Alison Eastwood donning a stunning 1930's inspired beaded gown by Les Habitudes for her nuptials with 'Chainsaw Gang' sculptor Stacy Poitras. The couple's rings were designed by Philip Press.

"We are thrilled to be surrounded by our family for this very special day and appreciate their love and support as we begin our married life together," the happy couple told People magazine. As well as Clint Eastwood, the guests also include Alison's mother Maggie, her jazz musician brother Kyle Eastwood, actor brother Scott Eastwood, sister Kathryn Eastwood, as well as Clint's current wife Dina Eastwood and Poitras's brothers Mark, Matt and Bobby.

The guests dined on a lavish menu that included salmon and elk, though the bride chowed down on a vegetarian meal. Her husband, who stars on the CMT show about artists who make sculptures with chainsaws, met Alison five years ago when she rode her horse to his studio at the Rustic Canyon General Store and Grill in California.

If You Only Knew Review


OK
Where else in the world do crazy, wacked-out romantic comedies invariably involve nutty roommate situations? Well, New York City, and If You Only Knew is no exception to the rule, following on the heels of some of its more capable brethren like Addicted to Love and Ed's Next Move. This time out, writer Johnathon Schaech is hot in pursuit of painter Alison Eastwood in a Village romance... ah, if only she didn't think he was gay! Moderately entertaining and certainly better than a lot of attempts at the genre.

Friends & Lovers Review


Weak
Friends & Lovers got a bad rap. It's hardly great cinema, but the worst film ever made? This isn't even the worst film of the year! While Stephen Baldwin as headliner is hardly comforting, nuanced performances by Alison Eastwood, Suzanne Cryer, and George Newbern make this watchable at least. It's even funny from time to time. Altogether, this Big Chill knockoff (minus 15 years on the characters, plus a lot of sex) isn't even close to awful.

The Spring Review


Grim
It's Tuck Everlasting -- but for grown-ups! Er, grown-ups who don't want much of a challenge from their TV movies.

In The Spring (tagline: "Live spelled backwards is evil.") Kyle MacLachlan stars as a hapless widower who, through an incredible series of unfortunate coincidences, ends up stranded in a town that just so happens to harbor a fountain of youth. Only all the residents agree to never leave the town and commit suicide on their 100th birthdays. The point of the youth serum is thus rendered irrelevant -- why live forever if it's not forever and it's in the podunkest town in the country?

Tightrope Review


Good
Tightrope would rank among the best of the Dirty Harry movies, if only Clint Eastwood was playing Harry in the film. Instead, Eastwood is a deeply troubled cop in New Orleans, tasked with taking down a serial killer who ends up threatening his daughters as well. The killer is really twisted (we're talking lady-in-washing-machine), and Eastwood begins to realize they may not be so different. The ending is really muddy and inconclusive, but overall this is a fairly gripping thriller and one of Eastwood's better flicks.

Poolhall Junkies Review


Grim
Deceptive advertisements aside, there's very little Christopher Walken in Poolhall Junkies, a dull and lifeless film about a down-and-out underdog overcoming adversity to triumph in the end. The legendary actor (who seems to dominate every frame of the film's television commercials) shows up for only two notable scenes - his introduction, and the film's climax - and, when he's on screen, this middling B-movie displays some sizzle and pizzazz that's otherwise all too conspicuously missing from its "kind-hearted hustler makes good" blather. Walken has made a career out of rejuvenating shoddy clunkers like this one and, despite his limited screen time, he devours his scenes with the kind of gleeful voraciousness that his co-stars would be wise to study.

Star/writer/director Gregory "Mars" Martin has certainly taken a few lessons from watching Walken. As pool prodigy Johnny Doyle, Martin sports bouffant Walken-esque hair and mimics the actor's famously off-kilter verbal cadence, but has no idea how to craft a performance aside from these affectations. As an orphaned kid, Doyle was taken under the wing of a mobster named Joe (Chazz Palminteri) who taught him to be a pool-playing con man. Years later, Doyle learns that Joe screwed him out of a chance to go professional, and he turns on his former benefactor - a decision that comes back to haunt him when Joe returns looking for revenge with a professional ringer (a surprisingly convincing Rick Schroder) in tow. Doyle is trying to keep his relationship with girlfriend Tara (Alison Eastwood) afloat despite her disapproval over his pool shark ways, and also attempting to steer his eager brother Danny (Michael Rosenbaum) and his gang of straight-out-of-central-casting wisecracking buddies away from a life of hustling.

Black & White (1998) Review


Grim
A promising thriller noir is ruined in its second half by a meandering plot that tries to get clever but ends up being pretty dumb. Gina Gershon and Rory Cochrane as cops investigating the elusive "inside job" are pretty bland and have no chemistry, even if Gina spends most of the film naked. Never mind the plot.

Just a Little Harmless Sex Review


Grim
In the grand tradition of fine, adult fare like Body Shots comes this unforgettable Jonathan Silverman vehicle featuring a man (and his two friends) who "accidentally" cheats on his wife (and her two friends)... and the one night none of them will forget! Wow, I should go into promo copywriting. Anyway, this embarrassing bit of fluff is essentially harmless yet overwhelmingly forgettable, with the possible exception of Kimberly Williams' drunken strip tease wherein she loses only her shirt. Talk about phony advertising....
