Monsters University Trailer


All Mike Wazowski dreams of is graduating from the prestigious Monsters University and becoming one of the world's best scarers. However, college doesn't go as swimmingly as he'd hoped, especially when he crosses paths with the large, hairy and extremely arrogant James P. 'Sulley' Sullivan who is also majoring in scaring and becomes his roommate. They are constantly attempting to get one up on each other and their competitiveness puts them seriously under threat of getting removed from the University's Scare Program. In order to stay on the course and graduate, they must work as a team in the dangerous Scare Games alongside their not so competent friends, the Oozma Kappa. With Mike and Sulley being total opposites of each other, they each possess what the other is missing which makes them, in theory, the perfect dream team.

Mike and Sulley haven't always been the best of friends that we know they were working at Monsters Inc. When they were amateurs and roommates both majoring in 'scaring' at the Monsters University, there was constant competition between the pair as Mike struggled to keep up with Sulley's natural big, hairy monster persona; Mike and his small physique and rather unscary retainer made him the favourite subject of mockery by Sulley and his friends despite their being in the same fraternity. It soon becomes clear, however, that they are better off together than alone while Mike has the brains and Sulley has the brawn.

Professional 'scarers' at Monsters Inc., Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (nicknamed Mike and Sulley) haven't always been so scary. 'Monsters University' tells the story of the duo's time at the University of Fear, about ten years previous, where they took their education in scaring children and often practised on each other with various college pranks that obviously united them in the end.

God Said "Ha!" Review


Excellent
What a bad, awful life Julia Sweeney has had -- you know, not including all the Saturday Night Live success and stuff. After her brother was diagnosed with lymphoma and the entire family moved in with her to care for him, Julia came down with cervical cancer as well! But wow, does the tale of personal triumph in the face of incredible loss pick you up! Sweeney may be no Spalding Gray, but she's a natural in front of the camera, and her monologue breezes by, full of heartbreak and hilarity as well. Touching.

Courting Courtney Review


Weak
Faux documentary has been done better, often without so much as needing a camera rolling. This platform for comedian Dana Gould to ham it up while documenting the failed love life of his highschool crush is really little more than exactly that. Funny for about 12 minutes, depressing for 78 more.

Stuart Little Review


Weak

Fans of "Stuart Little," the classic E. B. White's children's book about a congenial little mouse with a wind-up red roadster, would be wise to avoid "Stuart Little," the mostly in-name-only big screen adaptation featuring Michael J. Fox's voice emanating from a computer-animated Stuart.

Nearly everything delightful about the book is erased or painted over here with near-plotless kiddie fare, predictably zany adventures and deliberately ham-fisted acting from a wildly talented cast (Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie, Jeffrey Jones, Allyce Beasley, Estelle Getty, Julia Sweeney), entirely wasted on a Saturday morning cartoon script.

Ironically co-written by M. Night Shyamalan (the writer-director of "The Sixth Sense"), the story opens with Mr. and Mrs. Little on their way to an orphanage to pick out a kid for no explored reason. Won over by the home's least likely resident -- a talking mouse named Stuart with a miniature wardrobe and a pithy personality -- they take him home, where his new brother George (Jonathan Lipnicki from "Jerry Maguire") gives him the cold shoulder and the family cat (voiced obnoxiously by Nathan Lane) tries to eat him.

Clockstoppers Review


OK

Back in the early 1970s, far-fetched kiddie caper matinees came out almost every other week. They were low-budget, weakly-plotted, G-rated adventures in which clever pubescents and/or teenagers outsmarted cartoonishly nefarious adults who worked for the government or a Big Mean Corporation and were always were up to no good.

These movies were hit-and-miss throwaway fare like "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" (featuring teenage Kurt Russell), "Candleshoe" (teenage Jodie Foster) and "Escape from Witch Mountain." But they had a certain cheap charm that seems to be making a colorful, high-tech comeback in films like "Spy Kids," "Big Fat Liar" and the new kids-with-gadgets escapade "Clockstoppers."

This one stars Jesse Bradford (bewitched by Kirsten Dunst in "Bring It On") as Zak, a resourceful high schooler (he sells garage-sale finds on eBay to save for a car) who gets his hands on an experimental wristwatch that can speed up his molecules to the point where time seems to stand still for the rest of the world.

Whatever It Takes Review


Unbearable

Another lowest-common-denominator high school romance made from the cannibalized parts of equally unambitious teen fare, "Whatever It Takes" stakes its bottom-feeder comedy ground almost immediately with a student assembly scene in which the school nurse (Julia Sweeney in a career low) demonstrates condom application on a five-foot phallus.

And it's all downhill from there.

Ryan (Shane West from TV's "Once and Again") and Maggie (Marla Sokoloff, the secretary on "The Practice") are next door neighbors, best friends and lonely hearts. She's sweet and dead sexy but can't find a beau, apparently because her IQ is larger than her bra size. He's one of those handsome movie "geeks" (illustrated mostly by the fact that he plays the accordion), hopelessly stuck on arrogant, air-headed Ashley (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), the Prettiest Vixen in School.
