Adam Review


Grim
Quirky and cute almost to the point of distraction, the offbeat romance is only rescued by its likeable cast and an intriguing storyline. But the writer-director overstates everything, and encourages his actors to do the same.

Adam (Dancy) lives in a Manhattan flat on his own after the death of his father. He has Asperger syndrome, working as a toy company microchip developer and pretty hopeless at relationships. Then Beth (Byrne) moves into his building, and they strike up a friendship that leads to romance. She's attracted to his honesty, although her parents (Gallagher and Irving) aren't so sure. And the events that follow in both Adam's and Beth's lives put a heavy strain on their relationship.

Crossing Delancey Review


OK
Amy Irving headlines a strange trip through New York love, Annie Hall style, as her bookstore staffer encounters a headstrong author and a pickle maker en route to romance. Will she find happiness in the arms of paper or dill? Cryptic and meandering, don't be surprised if you have trouble caring who she falls for in the end.

Carried Away (1996) Review


Weak
It's not every day we get full frontal nudity from Dennis Hopper and Amy Irving -- much less in the same scene. And thank God for that. But behind the borderline creepiness of the movie lies a tepid story: Hopper and Irving are rural types carrying on a tentative romance. But student Amy Locane (who specializes in this role) comes into Hopper's classroom, and before 10 minutes are up, she's naked and bedding him in the barn. Eventually this turns out badly for all parties, as you might imagine. Worst, possibly, for the audience.

One Tough Cop Review


Grim
One Tough Cop sure makes for one boring movie. This true story of a case in the life of NYC flatfoot Bo Dietl has that "ripped from today's headlines" feeling usually reserved for TV. It's best left there.

The Fury Review


OK
Early Brian De Palma horror/thriller takes the Carrie vibe one by putting a government intrigue plot on the heads of its telekinetic teens -- which means people getting killed if they don't play nice. Kirk Douglas shines as the spy father of just such a teen (Andrew Stevens!), while across the globe, Amy Irving is just coming to terms with her powers. Of course, the feds will stop at nothing to control the powers in question. Watchable, but completely hokey (which, of course, is typical of De Palma's films altogether).

I'm Not Rappaport Review


Weak
Turning a play into a movie is always a hit-or-miss process, and I still don't know quite what to make of the latest film to take that journey, I'm Not Rappaport.

Based on the critically-acclaimed play of the same name, I'm Not Rappaport as the story of two elderly men, Nat, a Jewish/socialist radical and compulsive liar (Walter Matthau), and Midge, a black, nearly blind apartment superintendent (Ossie Davis). The pair has an uneasy friendship based on the fact that they sit on the same bench in Central Park, where Nat fills Midge's head with fabrications. Nat's flair for creating new personae for himself draws the pair into one minor adventure after another, involving a young artist-in-training (Martha Plimpton), a drug dealer (Craig T. Nelson), a mugger (Guillermo Diaz), and threats from Nat's daughter (Amy Irving) regarding the ever-looming old folks' home.

Deconstructing Harry Review


Good
The Wood-man cometh, and he goes for broke this time.

Pretty much taking pot-shots at everyone he's ever known, every establishment he can think of, every vice there is, and--mostly--himself... that's your basic summary of Deconstructing Harry. Allen is vulgar and crass, wholly unlikeable... but hysterical. Maybe the funniest part of the film is the cast of stars he's lined up, all of whom do nothing but get spit upon the whole time! Suckers! (The movie is told half in reality, half as visualizations of writer Harry Block's (Allen) stories, thus, the large cast.)

13 Conversations About One Thing Review


Excellent
With a title as curious as 13 Conversations About One Thing, most moviegoers probably want to know what the "thing" is before plunking down their bucks to see the movie. Well, that "thing" appears to be happiness, and the search for it. But don't let that fact and the peppy title fool you - this film isn't filled with a bunch of inane chick chatter. Writer/director Jill Sprecher's follow-up to her debut Clockwatchers has an overall tone of despair and a faint hint of evil, much like that first film. It results in a surprising, bold, satisfying drama with a mildly depressing wave running through it.

But here, the downtrodden vibe has more complexity than Clockwatchers, as does the storyline. Co-written with sister Karen, Sprecher's screenplay follows a series of New York City tales that, aside from their underlying themes, are apparently unconnected... or are they?

The Rage: Carrie 2 Review


Grim
What is it about the teen movie? Is it just attractive people put in with bad writing and acting? Are we supposed to enjoy it? The original Carrie broke that tradition. It was different. The Rage: Carrie 2 falls back into the mold.

Emily Bergl stars as Rachel Lang, the new telekinetic teen who can move things with her mind in accordance to her emotions. Rachel is an outcast, with only one friend. I do like the way they show the class system of high schools (football players being on top) but if you want to see a movie that displays that in a better way, go rent Welcome to Dollhouse. Anyhoo, Rachel's friend jumps off a building after being used by a football player (Home Improvement's Zachary Ty Brian). Rachel is crushed, alone in the world until she is sought after by another football player (this time with good intentions) played by Party of Five's Jeremy London. Soon Rachel is part of the in-crowd, but knowing the original, we know she's going to be setup so she can display her, uh, Rage.
