Bradley Cooper Netflix David Hyde Pierce Elizabeth Banks

It may have taken less than $2 million at the box office back in 2001, but comedy Wet Hot American Summer has gone on to become a cult classic thanks to its impressive cast list. But now it looks as if the comedy is getting a second chance to break the mainstream, this time as an eight episode series to be streamed on Netflix

Bradley CooperBradley Cooper was one of the stars of Wet Hot American Summer

The limited series has been created by David Wain and Michael Showalter, who also wrote the movie. Wain, who directed the film, will also be behind the camera this time. The duo will also serve as executive producers alongside Howard Bernstein, Jonathan Stern and Peter Principato.

In his first television role since the conclusion of Frasier in 2004, David Hyde Pierce - who played Niles Crane - has been cast in the sixth season of CBS drama 'The Good Wife'. Pierce will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is "disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago."

The Perfect Host Trailer


John Taylor is a criminal who has just robbed a bank and pulled it off perfectly. It's unexpected, then, when he turns on the radio in a stolen car and discovers that his crime is all over the news. Police know what he looks like and they even know what car he's driving. John needs to look for a place to hide, off the streets.

Nixon Review


Very Good
History has not been much kinder to Nixon the movie than it was to Nixon the man. Grossing under $14 million domestically, the $50 million movie was an enormous box office flop (what 1995-era family wouldn't want to go catch Nixon on Christmas Day?), though four Oscar nominations (it won none) must have softened the blow somewhat for auteur director Oliver Stone.

With Nixon, Stone struggles to present a thoughtful biography of one of history's most reviled leaders and the only President in modern times to voluntarily leave office before the end of his term. Richard Nixon of course needs no introduction, and Stone takes a much different approach to the material here than he did with JFK, which remains one of my favorite films ever. Rather than focus on a single incident -- Watergate -- Stone endeavors to encompass Nixon's entire life and career, from his days as a young Quaker (complete with dying brothers) to two big failed runs at political office to the entirety of his troubled political career. All the highlights are here, at least in part: Kent State, China, Vietnam and Cambodia, and of course the tragic events of Watergate.

Crossing Delancey Review


Good
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.

Treasure Planet Review


Very Good
Children, put down your books. Thanks to Walt Disney Studios, you no longer need them. In today's world, a video store membership card and a working knowledge of animated Disney classics proves to be a much more valuable educational tool than a library card. Want to learn about early American settlers conquering the New World? Rent Pocahontas. Pending pop quiz on Greek mythology? Try Hercules. Put down Sir Edgar Rice Burroughs. You've got Tarzan.

The art of reading a book is slowly fading away. Disney realizes this, and even makes a not-so-veiled reference to it at the beginning of their latest literary plunder -- er, adaptation -- Treasure Planet. When we first meet our hero, 10-year-old Jim Hawkins, he's engrossed in a swashbuckling pirate novel. However, it's really a 3D pop-up novel, where interactive visual effects act out the stories for kids "reading" them. The process has begun.

Osmosis Jones Review


Good
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the back of your nose when you sneeze? The Farrelly Brothers have. And in their traditional gross-out fashion, they'd like to show you.

There you have Osmosis Jones, a combination of clunky live action and cool, creative animation that tries too hard to please both adults and kiddies while journeying inside one disgusting body.

A Bug's Life Review


Excellent
Disney/Pixar's remake of, ironically, Three Amigos!, is redone with bugs and animated via computer. When meanie grasshoppers (headed by Kevin Spacey) threaten the anthill, well-intentioned clutz Flik (Dave Foley) goes on a crusade to find help. He ends up recruiting a bunch of circus performers instead of real heroes to help the cause. Wacky hijinks ensue.

It's a good story (though not as deep as Antz), has genuinely funny characters (much funnier than Antz), and is certainly good for the whole family (unlike Antz altogether). Be sure to check out the DVD, which features both sets of "outtakes" which roll during the credits--hilarious!

Full Frontal Review


Excellent
For the uninitiated who know Steven Soderbergh only as the auteur behind such delights as Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven remake, know that Soderbergh was once far better known as a god of the indie film scene, the man behind movies like sex, lies & videotape, King of the Hill, and Schizopolis.

Like King of the Hill and the groundbreaking videotape, some of this work is genius.

Wet Hot American Summer Review


Bad

Never before have I seen a movie try so hard to be deliberately awful -- and succeed so wildly -- as "Wet Hot American Summer," a nickel-budget sketch-comedy spoof of early '80s teen sex-at-camp romps like "Little Darlings" and "Meatballs."

Created by veterans of cable "Saturday Night Live" knock-offs "The State" and "Upright Citizens' Brigade," it's a loose jumble of too-obvious jabs at the genre through stock characters in grossly under-rehearsed vignettes that are absentmindedly filmed and edited together without rhythm and apparently at random.

You've got your dorky virgin (Michael Showalter) making an ass of himself for the unattainable girl (Marguerite Moreau). She prefers the inimical, self-styled stud in the jean jacket (the under-appreciated Paul Rudd in the movie's only truly funny performance). He, in turn, prefers the company of your ubiquitous pubescent sluts in tube tops.
