Save the Last Dance Review


Grim
It is a strange coincidence that, as I rode in a taxi to the screening of Save the Last Dance, Irene Cara's "What a Feeling" played on the radio. I could imagine no more of a fitting primer for a film that basically amounts to Flashdance 2001.

Save the Last Dance is the story of a spunky white girl named Sara (Julia Stiles, State and Main) who has a gift for ballet.

The Out-of-Towners (1999) Review


Weak
While this remake of the 1970 Jack Lemmon film of the same name (not a classic, by the way) comes off as something of a perverse cross between Steve Martin's own Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Adventures in Babysitting, it has enough silly giggles in it to make it better than, say, watching UPN on a Wednesday night. And though Goldie Hawn is seen in what might be the worst role in her entire life, Martin's schtick is somehow timeless and tireless.
