First World Problems: Andie MacDowell Is Refused First Class Seating


Andie MacDowell

Occasionally, we'll be scrolling through Twitter and discover a priceless gem that's just the perfect example of first world problems. This time, it's Andie MacDowell's page that we stumbled upon, because she was having some major issues with American Airlines. Be warned: this is a true travel horror story.

So there the 'Cedar Cove' actress was, on her way to attend a charity event which she was volunteering for accompanied by her pet pooch Ava. As a celebrity, naturally she paid for to be seated in first class where she could enjoy first rate meals and unlimited champagne, but then the worst happened.

Matthew McConaughey Is Not In 'Magic Mike XXL'. But Andie MacDowell Is.


Matthew Mcconaughey Andie MacDowell Steven Soderbergh Channing Tatum

Matthew McConaughey will not reprise his role as strip-club owner Dallas in sequel Magic Mike XXL, according to director Greg Jacobs. Since his performance in the first movie, McConaughey has won an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, stole The Wolf of Wall Street with just a couple of scenes and delivered one of the finest TV drama performances of all time as Rust Cohle in True Detective.

All that has success means McConaughey is in demand and as well as Interstellar and Gus Vant Sant's Sea of Trees, the actor presumably has numerous movies in development.

Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan, Lord Of The Apes Review


Weak
Ishtar, Hudson Hawk, and Heaven's Gate get all the ink, but Greystoke -- if there was any justice in the world -- would go down in history as one of cinema's great disasters.

Director Hugh Hudson had just finished Chariots of Fire, so why wouldn't he be perfect to direct the annual retelling of the Tarzan legend? Christopher Lambert -- hell, with that mop of a hairdo he looks a lot like Tarzan. Ralph Richardson and Ian Holm are excellent actors. How could this miss?

The Object Of Beauty Review


Bad
Back in 1991, Andie MacDowell was even worse of an actress than she is today. Much worse. Terrible, really. For the proof, check her out in this post-sex, lies, and videotape outing with John Malkovich in a story about -- get this -- a statuette that gets stolen from their hotel room nightstand. By a deaf mute cleaning lady. That's the object of beauty, I guess, and this movie is about as good as any that would put the word "object" in the title. Boring at its best and incomprehensible at its worst, this is one film you can easily pass up.

Unstrung Heroes Review


Excellent
Diane Keaton's directorial feature film debut is a very impressive one. Unstrung Heroes is a smart, bittersweet drama about a boy growing up in postwar suburbia. 12-year old Steven Lidz (Nathan Watt) is surrounded by his inventor father (John Turturro) and nearly-insane uncles Danny and Arthur (Seinfeld's Michael Richards and Maury Chaykin). When his mother Selma (Andie McDowell) develops cancer from her chain smoking, Steven's life begins to slowly unravel.

The pressures of Selma's illness take their toll on everyone, and Steven becomes lost in the cyclone of anger and sorrow that accompanies any tragedy like this. To find peace, Steven runs away to stay with his uncles, where he finds a new world of self-realization, living on his own terms instead of the indifferent rules set down by his father and by society.

Sex, Lies, And Videotape Review


Excellent
Steven Soderbergh didn't just launch the whole movies-with-all-lowercase-titles craze (as it's commonly written), he also launched the '90s rebirth of independent cinema with this singular effort. Mostly a chatty drama about sex in various levels of perversion, the film's momentum comes from the sudden arrival of a sexually dysfunctional James Spader, who throws a wrench into the lives of the other three principals -- a married couple and the wife's sister, engaged in a sad love triangle. Earnestly acted and expertly directed by Soderbergh in his major directorial debut, the film is a piece for film students and cinema fans alike.

Muppets From Space Review


Good
Many critics will disagree with me, but I'm of the opinion that the Muppets, as characters, can do no wrong. Each Muppet has well-developed, quirky traits that make people of all ages love them. And that is what saved this film.

Unlike most of the other Muppet films, our featured star in this particular one is Gonzo. As we all know, Gonzo is a "Whatever", but this explanation of his species is no longer good enough for the long-nosed freak. He longs for family, and the satisfaction of knowing what he is. Then no sooner than you can say, "Wakka-Wakka", Gonzo's origins begin to reveal themselves. And they do this, ever so appropriately, through his breakfast cereal (well I thought it was funny).

Continue reading: Muppets From Space Review

Dinner With Friends Review


Good
Ten minutes with Toni Collette's Beth and you'll understand why her husband (Greg Kinnear) wants to be rid of her. As an adult drama, Dinner With Friends is apt enough at exploring late-thirtysomething angst and crisis, well acting and paced with enough momentum to keep the story from dragging. Too bad the emotion is all on the surface, making it difficult to identify with any of the characters in a positive way.

Short Cuts Review


Very Good
While one could argue that Robert Altman's 1993 film Short Cuts was simply an updating of his 1975 classic Nashville, with a much higher quotient of star power and slightly more prurient subject matter - an attempt to keep the once iconic filmmaker from straying into the shadowy irrelevance like so many of his '70s peers - and while that argument could very well be true, that doesn't deprive Short Cuts of any of its power, or disprove the fact that it's ultimately a better film.

Spinning together a series of short stories from the master of the form, Raymond Carver, Altman takes some 20-odd Los Angelenos and twists their lives together seemingly just for the fun of how their individual little lives play out and connect up, like a puppetmaster who can't stop adding new puppets to his repertoire. To flesh out his tapestry of early '90s Southern California life, Altman has a fine batch of actors and actresses, including everyone from the best of their generation (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Downey Jr) to the solidly respectable but not terribly exciting choices (Julianne Moore, Matthew Modine, Madeleine Stowe) to oddly effective musician stunt casting (Lyle Lovett, Tom Waits, Huey Lewis) to one lordly presence (Jack Lemmon).

Continue reading: Short Cuts Review

The Muse Review


Excellent
Albert Brooks, who last gave us a wryly cynical meditation on mother-and-son relationships with Mother, turns now to a wryly cynical meditation on Hollywood and inspiration with the aptly titled The Muse.

Brooks plays Steven Phillips, a moderately successful Hollywood screenwriter who suddenly finds he's lost "his edge." In desperation he turns to friend Jack (Bridges), who introduces him to a girl named Sarah (Stone), whom Jack claims is a muse. Or rather, one of The Muses, a source of divine inspiration.

Continue reading: The Muse Review

Multiplicity Review


Good
I hate it when a film sounds like it's going to be great, has a hilarious teaser-trailer, stars some wonderful actors, features a small role played by the daughter of one of my film review subscribers, and ends up falling a bit flat on the screen.

Such is the case with Multiplicity, the new Harold Ramis-Michael Keaton comedy about a guy who clones himself in order to get a little free time.

Continue reading: Multiplicity Review

Groundhog Day Review


Essential
Brilliant, quirky, good-natured, and smart are just some of the adjectives that we film critics don't get to use often enough, but all of them apply to Groundhog Day. Director/screenwriter Harold Ramis, actor Bill Murray, and everyone else involved with this film have all been responsible for their share of dogs. But this quirky, good-natured comedy is as good as it can be. Too rarely does a clever screenplay come along to give good actors a chance.

Murray's TV weatherman is a burnout with a bad attitude, a small fish in a small market, who affects the egotism and cynicism of all members of the press but knows that he's second-rate. Then, in a bizarre plot turn, he is thrown into a time warp where he is forced to live the same day over and over until he gets it right -- and to learn to appreciate life's blessings in the process.

Continue reading: Groundhog Day Review

Shadrach Review


Good
Bizarre southern morality fable, about a poor man who encounters a homeless ex-slave on the verge of his death. Poor southern man must then come to grips with burying this guy. Uh, okay. 80 minutes of breezy cinematic fluff.

Michael Review


OK
I have a theory about Michael. Take Groundhog Day, substitute William Hurt for Bill Murray. Substitute Travolta as an angel for the groundhog. Take out all the time travel stuff. Oh, and take out the funny stuff. Same movie.

Town & Country Review


Weak
Past-their-prime actors don't die -- they pick up studio paychecks for hack projects like Town & Country. This drama/comedy/message-movie overflows with wannabe heartfelt sentiment like a three-day old colostomy bag.

Long mired in rewrites, delays, and dismal test screenings, it's easy to see why the studio gods postponed delivery of this stinking mess until the dumping grounds of spring, just before the big summer releases. We get two strong actors -- Warren Beatty and Diane Keaton -- mixed together with a few lesser actors -- Goldie Hawn, Garry Shandling, and Andie McDowell -- and they all get to wade through an aimless script (polished up by Buck Henry!) about infidelity, homosexuality, and dysfunctional family affairs. It would have been better served heading straight to video.

Continue reading: Town & Country Review

Harrison's Flowers Review


Excellent
In Elie Chouraqui's compelling new film Harrison's Flowers, the life of a war photojournalist doesn't just contain hints of peril; it's depicted as a task tantamount to serving as a soldier on the front lines of war. In this case, the parallel isn't constructed as a metaphor -- it's offered as stark reality.

Set at the beginning of the 1990s, Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Harrison Floyd (David Straithairn) has reached a pinnacle. He is revered by professional associates and enjoys the unconditional love of his wife, Sarah (Andie MacDowell), and their two young children. He appears on his way to career burnout though, a point hammered home at an awards banquet, when he presents the Pulitzer Prize to his best friend and fellow photojournalist Yeager (Elias Koteas). That night, Harrison is confronted by an angry, young photographer, Kyle (Adrien Brody), who tears into the man for taking the path of least resistance to find fame, while his journalist brethren are literally dying for their work on personal assignments in dangerous territories.

Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan, Lord Of The Apes Review

Ishtar, Hudson Hawk, and Heaven's Gate get all the ink, but Greystoke -- if there was any justice in the world -- would go down in history as one of cinema's great disasters.

Director Hugh Hudson had just finished Chariots of Fire, so why wouldn't he be perfect to direct the annual retelling of the Tarzan legend? Christopher Lambert -- hell, with that mop of a hairdo he looks a lot like Tarzan. Ralph Richardson and Ian Holm are excellent actors. How could this miss?

Just The Ticket Review


Weak
Hey, next Friday night, why not try a 2-hour tragicomedy about the wild and wacky world of ticket scalping? With Andy Garcia and Andie MacDowell!? Yow. "Ill-advised" is certainly a term that comes to mind. But Just the Ticket is basically humorless and so overly contrived (electronics saleswoman really wants to have her own restaurant) that it's overall just a waste of time for everyone involved. Even cameos from the likes of Joe Frazier can't elevate this film above a one-note joke.

Crush Review


Very Good
While Andie MacDowell has spent much of the last few years in little-seen bombs like Just the Ticket, Reaching Normal, and the now-legendary Town & Country, she seems poised to re-emerge as a hot ticket in spring 2002. Perhaps not a huge, hot-selling ticket, but an actress whose skills and range will reach a larger audience than the ones provided by those previous duds. With Harrison's Flowers and the comedy-drama Crush, a primarily alterna-theater crowd will get to enjoy the woman they first met in sex, lies, and videotape - and in Crush, they'll get to see plenty more of the sex and the lies.

Brit John McKay's debut feature, based on his play, is a real girl's club, U.K. style. MacDowell plays Kate, an American living in an idyllic British country home, working as headmistress at a stuffy-looking school. Molly (Rachel Ward look-alike Anna Chancellor, from TV's Longitude) is a tough, sexy doctor, and Janine (Imelda Staunton of Rat and Chicken Run) is a sympathetic divorced Mom and a top police inspector. The three women, all single and in their early forties, stick together like bonding glue.
