Cops Jimmy and Paul (Willis and Morgan) have been partners for nine years but, after a chase goes horribly wrong, they're suspended for a month. While Paul suspects his wife (Jones) of infidelity, Jimmy's daughter (Trachtenberg) is planning an extravagant wedding. To pay for it, Jimmy decides to sell a valuable baseball card, which is promptly stolen by a low-life goon (Scott) and passed on to a murderous gangster (Diaz). So Jimmy calls Paul to help him get it back. It's not like they have anything better to do.

Based on the critically-acclaimed play of the same name, I'm Not Rappaport as the story of two elderly men, Nat, a Jewish/socialist radical and compulsive liar (Walter Matthau), and Midge, a black, nearly blind apartment superintendent (Ossie Davis). The pair has an uneasy friendship based on the fact that they sit on the same bench in Central Park, where Nat fills Midge's head with fabrications. Nat's flair for creating new personae for himself draws the pair into one minor adventure after another, involving a young artist-in-training (Martha Plimpton), a drug dealer (Craig T. Nelson), a mugger (Guillermo Diaz), and threats from Nat's daughter (Amy Irving) regarding the ever-looming old folks' home.

This pretty much sums up the early attitude of the title character in Party Girl, a new film by Daisy von Scherler Mayer, about the misadventures of a New York City diva who finds her life suddenly falling apart. Parker Posey plays Mary, the Party Girl in question, whose flair and style are matched only by her inability to do anything productive with her life.

A New York indie romantic comedy in the classic vein, Just One Time is writer/producer/director/star Lane Janger's fifth time around as a filmmaker but is his first major in front of the camera. To my surprise, he's not bad -- which probably means the source material is ripped from his personal headlines (but who am I to say?).

Stop me if you've heard this one before: "Just One Time" is a "romantic comedy" about a guy who acts like a selfish idiot through the whole movie, then makes an insincere 30-second apology just before the credits roll. The girl takes him back, no questions asked, and that's the happy ending.
Is anybody else sick of these movies that insult women by implying that they shouldn't look for a man who treats them right, but just settle for one who apologizes when he treats them badly?
The twist in "Just One Time" that's supposed to make it unique is the way in which the guy (co-writer/director Lane Janger) acts like an idiot -- he pressures his fiancée (Joelle Carter) to have a threesome with another woman when she's clearly not at all interested.
