Outsourced Review


Very Good
The offshoring of U.S. jobs remains a hot topic in the news... and now it's a hot topic in the movies, too. (At least four projects called Outsourced have been produced in the last three years alone!)

Everyman Josh Hamilton carries this premise handily: His game of computer Solitaire is interrupted by his boss, who's telling him the customer service call center he manages is being shipped overseas, to India.

50 First Dates Review


Bad
It's like a Valentine's Day present from Adam Sandler - if he hated us, each and every one. There's a funny man somewhere inside of Sandler, but he only makes brief appearances on movie screens; and unfortunately he keeps making comedies, even when he shouldn't. The perfect example of a comedy that never should have been, 50 First Dates provides pretty much nothing in the laughs department but, just to be cruel, gives audiences a taste, but just a taste, of the romantic story buried underneath all the caca jokes.

In the world of 50 First Dates, we're supposed to believe that Sandler - whose name this time out is Henry Roth, if it matters - is a veterinarian and ladies man who only romances tourists due to his commitment phobia. When he's not loving and leaving, Henry is giving all the sordid details of said behavior to his best buddy Ula (Rob Schneider sporting a tatty wig and accent that should have the Hawaiian Anti-Defamation League in arms) and elicits cute reaction shots from his animal patients and buddies, like some sort of evil Dr. Doolittle. But then he meets adorable Lucy Whitmore (Drew Barrymore) at a café and falls hard for her. They plan to meet the next day, but when he shows up, she has no idea who the hell he is.
