My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - First Look Trailer


It’s been fourteen years since Toula Portokalos-Miller had her Big Fat Greek Wedding, but now it’s time to round up the family and do it all over again. Except this time there’s a difference.

When we join Toula and Ian again, they’re now parents to a teenage daughter who’s all set to go to college (as far away from her family as possible).

As they struggle to find the balance between being good parents and making time for each other, the couple still must deal with Toula’s ever-present, overbearing Greek family.

Rebel Wilson posed alongside Crystal the Monkey on the red carpet at the New York premiere of 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'. Crystal, who plays Dexter in the movie, appeared to have a rather firm grip on Wilson's perfectly preened hair, though no damaged was caused when the pair parted ways.

Pippin At The Music Box Theater Has Just The Right Amount Of Magic


Andrea Martin

The end of this season on Broadway brings an unexpected treat – the American Repertory Theater’s grand revival of the beloved musical Pippin. Director Diane Paulus has given this coming of age story a complete overhaul and now it’s part musical, part complicated circus performance and all fun.

Pippin first appeared on Broadway in 1970 and by now everyone is familiar with Stephen Schwarz’s songs and the story, penned by Roger O’Hirson. A group of traveling players tell the story of a 9th century emperor’s son, who goes on a quest of self discovery, trying to find his place in the world. And if the setup makes it sound quaint, be sure that this production is anything but. The circus theme allows for a lot of physicality in the performance and multiple numbers with complex choreography. Surprisingly however, all the jumping around does not detract from the story and the tricks by fire jugglers, teeterboards, knife throwing and contortionists help tease out the wandering nature of the mysterious players. The acrobatics are handed over to Montreal-based troupe 7 Doigts De La Main and it couldn’t be a more perfect match.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Paulus knows what she’s doing, having worked on the hugely successful Hair revival, as well as Porgy and Bess. But she is also directing some talented actors, who were all up to par with the musical’s physically demanding numbers. While Patina Miller, Terrence Mann and Andrea Martin all give solid performances in their respective roles as Leading Player, Pippin’s father and Pippin’s grandmother, it’s the relative newcomers in the leading roles who deserve a special commendation – Rachel Bay Jones and Pippin himself, Matthew James Thomas. Aside from his looks Thomas has also got the acting and singing chops to make a wonderful leading man and perfectly complements an already impressive production. As the season closes, Pippin is certainly good enough to end the show on a high.

Black Christmas (1974) Review


Good
"If this picture doesn't make your skin crawl... it's on too tight!"

So went the promo tagline for Black Christmas, the 1974 cult horror classic which might have had epidermal layers on the go 30 years ago... but which feels pretty tame today.

Black Christmas (2006) Review


Excellent
On a yearly basis, Hollywood tries to profit from the holidays. This year, Tinsletown released The Santa Clause 3, Unaccompanied Minors, Deck the Halls, The Nativity Story, and The Holiday for the seasonal viewing pleasures of families everywhere...

Then -- on Christmas Day -- came Black Christmas, a holiday film for people who were bored as Santa battled Jack Frost and yawned as Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem on a donkey. For audiences like us, there could be nothing more joyous than watching annoying sorority chicks getting diced to pieces on Christmas break by an inbred psychopath.

Club Paradise Review


Bad
Before "celebrity" reality shows, ensemble comedies were the lifelines that kept failing showbiz careers from bottoming out. This subgenre was like a post-Thanksgiving meal concocted of small quantities of disparate leftovers. It was never particularly good, but if one dish didn't taste good, at least you had a dozen other Tupperwares to open.

Club Paradise is a prototypical specimen, starring a dozen actors in career lulls, including Mork, Twiggy, a gaggle of Second City vets, Jimmy Cliff, and even Lawrence of Friggin' Arabia. A word of warning: these leftovers are rotten.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Review


Good

Sometimes a movie's success stems more from spirit, charm and perseverance than from any originality or artistry involved in its creation. The unabashedly confectionery ethnic comedy-romance "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is a shining example of just that phenomenon.

Of the same feel-good disposition as the Aussie sleeper hit "Strictly Ballroom," it's a low-budget, ugly duckling fairytale that is predictable and brimming with clichés -- but so earnest, funny and joyful that it's a complete delight all the same.

Adapted by Nia Vardalos from her own one-woman stage show, the movie also features Vardalos in the starring role as 30-ish Toula Portokalos, a frumpy, lovelorn waitress in her father's Greek restaurant. A shy girl who's fed up with her huge family's amusingly, exasperatingly intrusive hounding about finding a husband, she seeks self-empowerment by enrolling in community college computer classes, getting a make-over and taking new job at a relative's travel agency. In the process Toula discovers her assertive, flirtatious side -- just in time to meet Mr. Right.

All Over The Guy Review


OK

If gay men were allowed to kiss on TV -- I mean really kiss -- a frivolous but passably entertaining sitcom flick like "All Over the Guy" probably would have -- probably should have -- become network series instead of a movie. Think a more sexually active "Will and Grace."

This two-perspective, romantic comedy dissection of a relationship's rise-and-fall is packed with sitcom stars living through sitcom conflicts while plucky sitcom soft rock guitar plays incidentally on the soundtrack. And you know how, after sitcoms have been on the air too long, they'll turn oh-so-poignant from time to time, having some sadness befall a character the writers hope we've come to love? "All Over the Guy" does that too.

These are not complaints, per se. This is a spirited and reliably funny movie. But it just feels so workaday, like a sitcom in its fifth season, that nothing much about it stands out.

Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius Review


Good

When brainy, bobble-headed computer-toon hero Jimmy Neutron tells his mom he's contacted alien life forms in "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," she's taken aback by his disobedience.

"Jimmy," she scolds, "how many times have I told you not to talk to strangers?"

It's a moment that defines the wit and whimsy of this spirited CGI kiddie creation, which is absolutely popping with personality and prodigious production design.
