When did Turret's syndrome become the disease-of-the-week? Maze, directed by and starring Rob Morrow, portrays an artist with the disorder -- whooping and popping his lips every few seconds -- and gives us a little peek into how one might live with such a malady. It's a little peek -- and the main plot line, following a strange relationship with a soon-to-be single mother (Laura Linney), is pretty weak. Then again, we are given a fully-nude Linney to ogle, so it ain't all bad.
Well, we all heard how bad 28 Days was, so coming into 30 Days, you might just wonder what added torture they could pack into the extra two. Thank God, 30 Days isn't 28 Days' cheap sequel. It's not 28 Days' evil twin. It's not even a distant cousin.
Instead of being a schlock comedy about drug rehab, 30 Days is an always smart, often thoughtful film about detachment, breaking up, true love, and how all doesn't always turn out for the best.
