Weinsteins To Produce Broadway Stage Shows


Harvey Weinstein Billy Elliot Chocolat David Glasser Finding Neverland Miramax Peter Pan Paradiso

Harvey Weinstein, who in the past has invested in Broadway productions and has producer credit on such stage shows as The Producers, Billy Elliot, and All Shook Up , is preparing to make The Weinstein Company a full-fledged Broadway production company, the New York Post reported today, citing an unnamed source. According to the newspaper, the Weinsteins are planning to use eight to ten movies that they have produced as source material for the shows and are already in production on Finding Neverland, a musical based on a 2004 Miramax movie about J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan. Two other Miramax movies are also slated for stage adaptations Chocolat and Cinema Paradiso . Weinstein Co. COO David Glasser confirmed the plans to the Post . "Instead of investing in other shows," he said, "it's about original shows out of our shop."

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London Review


OK
As I walked into the theater showing Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, it seemed as if a thousand kids were talking all at once, led by one particular youngster who had the authoritative rasp of a Teamster leader. The noise continued during the screen scramblers ("I guessed Steve!"), the promotional stills ("That looks like the movie...") and into the coming attractions. I began to wish I had slept in.

Then a miraculous thing happened: Cody Banks 2 started and there was a heavenly quiet--occasionally broken by laughter--that was maintained for the next hour and forty-odd minutes. That's a tremendous compliment for a kids' movie. I would like to say that Cody Banks 2 has a lot to offer adults, as well. For anyone over the age of 16, the movie moves briskly and doesn't make you curse the gods of time. In this pre-summer movie season, those qualities will be a blessing.

Agent Cody Banks Review


Terrible
I recently read an article that argued TV shows like CSI and James Bond movies are primarily responsible for young people's increased interest in criminal forensics and special military forces. Since Hollywood is both smart and shameless, it uses these notions to its advantage, devouring the success of Bond and vomiting up films like Spy Kids and Agent Cody Banks. Although the original Spy Kids worked, Agent Cody Banks proves that things seldom taste as good a second or third time.

Agent Cody Banks was made just to make money, and to stock Toys 'R' Us shelves and McDonald's Happy Meal boxes with cheap action figures. The script, which feels like the cheapest writers available threw it together in a week, is actually quite impressive in how every mind-numbing scene attempts to manipulate the minds of susceptible adolescents. It uses every trick in the book, from pre-teen humor and Bond rip-offs, to busty secret agents, phony special effects, and, of course, Frankie Muniz. If -- God forbid -- the movie is a hit, the producers have even secured an easy sequel with its carefully formulated ending.

Two Shades Of Blue Review


Unbearable
Good lord, a more wretched film couldn't be made if you set out to do it. This contrived, late-night Cinemax affair takes a blackmail plot, a murder plot, another murder plot, an insurance scandal -- and tries to tie it all together with the TDD phone service for the deaf as a plot device. Of course it stars Marlee Matlin -- and my, how far you have fallen, Marlee -- in her worst role ever. Busey and Roberts couldn't be hammier. And worst of all is Rachel Hunter, unintentionally made up to look like a drag queen, I kid you not. As a final insult, I'm pretty sure the titular Two Shades of Blue refer to her panties. Pap.
