Rock The Boat Review


Grim
Rather vapid corporate mystery has Amanda Donohoe investigating a little corruption, a little murder as she retakes control of the company she founded. Too bad none of the stories is very interesting.

The Last Good Time Review


Grim
Er, I'm guessing the last good time is when old fogie Armin Mueller-Stahl gets to bonk hottie Olivia d'Abo. The rest of the movie (when d'Abo is wearing clothes, that is) is unmemorable -- some wandering tale about Armin's tax problems and Olivia's abusive boyfriend. Two ships passing in the night and all that. Written, produced, and directed by character actor Bob Balaban.

Committed Review


OK
I walked into the screening of Committed with low expectations, having acquired some taste for Heather Graham though her appearances in Drugstore Cowboy, Swingers, Boogie Nights, and, perhaps most notably, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, but bearing little hope for a good story. After all, even Miramax's promotional synopses gave this picture about an over-zealous love junkie a lackluster pitch. The lesson here: Sometimes bad salesmen pitch good widgets.

As Forrest Gump might put it, Heather Graham is as Heather Graham does. In this flick, she does pretty good. Backed by the furrowed brow malaise of Luke Wilson (Home Fries, Dog Park and one of the best episodes of The X Files) and the way-cooler-than-his-brother Casey Affleck (200 Cigarettes), Graham's wide-eyed charm is disarming and convincing. You'll also find some great supporting performances from Patricia Velasquez (The Mummy--Don't worry; she's much wittier here.) and Alfonso Arau (Like Water for Chocolate, A Walk in the Clouds and--my favorite--El Guapo from The Three Amigos). The premise of the story is lame at best, but the combination of on-screen talent and resourceful writing and directing manage to pull off a better-than-mediocre movie. Committed is a perfect date movie, and I suspect it'll also be a winner among women whose men are too dumb to stay put.
