Fired Up! Review


OK
Broad and very silly, this comedy just about keeps us chuckling even when things get stupid and predictable. It's not very well-written, but there are enough deranged characters to make it almost worth a look.

At Gerald Ford High School, two chucklehead jock pals--nice guy Shawn (D'Agosto) and blond hunk Nick (Olsen)--decide to skip a gruelling football practice and chase girls at cheerleader camp instead. Of course, they soon start to actually enjoy themselves, and Shawn begins to fall for one of his teammates (Roemer), but trouble is brewing as they prepare to face the archrival Panthers. Meanwhile, Nick tries to woo the seductive Diora (Sims), wife of the camp's gung-ho director (Higgins).

Finishing The Game Review


Very Good
Finishing the Game is a big fun goof, a gift from leading Asian-American director Justin Lin to all his actor buddies. Everyone from Ron Jeremy to the voice of George Takei puts in an appearance. Clocking in at a brisk 82 minutes (the DVD includes 20 minutes of subplots that Lin wisely chopped out of the final cut), it's one gag after another all the way through.

Set in 1978 and featuring a porntastic wocka-wocka-wocka guitar-driven soundtrack straight out of Shaft, the movie drops us into a smoggy Hollywood, where first-time director Ronney (Jake Sandvig) is setting out to complete The Game of Death, Bruce Lee's unfinished masterpiece. His goal is to shoot additional footage and splice it all together to help his producer dad make money off the Bruce Lee footage he's acquired.

The Story Of Us Review


Weak

Unlike any real-life marriage -- especially a marriage on the rocks -- "The Story of Us" is 100-percent predictable.

Rob Reiner's new romantic dramedy about a married couple's 15-year itch, this "Story" is so faithful to formula that there are moments (several of them, in fact) at which any seasoned movie-goer could shout out what's going to happen next and be right every time.

Fade in. Wife and mom Michelle Pfeiffer has soap suds on her hand and in her hair as her washing machine overflows with sloshing water and bubbles. What comes next?
