Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas Trailer


Mabel 'Madea' Simmons is an enormous, rude and often violent grandmother who is displaying an unusual amount of holiday spirit this year by becoming Father Christmas for a night for five dollars per child. This year she is also getting roped into her best friend Eileen's efforts to visit her daughter in the country as a surprise during the holidays, but things don't go smoothly on their arrival as secrets are unveiled and friendships and family bonds are challenged as the town prepare for their annual Christmas Carnival. Will Madea manage to save Christmas for the family? Or will holiday spirits drop to an all time low as the New Year approaches?

The Guilt Trip Review


Very Good

Virtually impossible to market, this film isn't nearly as wacky and rude as its cast and crew suggest. Despite the presence of Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Streisand (Meet the Fockers), plus writer Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love), director Fletcher (The Proposal) and producer Goldberg (Superbad), this is actually a warm, gentle comedy about the relationship between a mother and son. Sure, there are moments of inspired silliness, but you're more likely to feel a lump in your throat than a stitch in your side.

Rogen plays the science nerd Andrew, who has just invented an organic cleaning product and is taking a cross-country trip to find a buyer. In a moment of weakness, he invites his meddling mother Joyce (Streisand) to join him on the road from New Jersey to San Francisco. She doesn't know that he has discovered that her old flame now lives in California, and he hopes that sparking her love life might get her off his back. But their time together takes some unexpected turns, which change their relationship forever.

Even in the film's goofier segments, such as a ridiculous beef-eating contest Joyce enters in Texas, Fletcher and Fogelman keep the characters likeable and grounded. Streisand is especially impressive, delivering a layered performance that mixes broad one-liners with more internalised emotions. She's much more than just a pushy Jewish mother: Joyce is a middle-aged woman with needs of her own and real love for her son. Meanwhile, Rogen plays Andrew as a nice guy with social issues. So instead of rooting for Joyce and Andrew to sort out their relationship, or even for Andrew to sell his invention, we are more interested in whether Joyce will be able to reignite her personal life.

Say Uncle Review


Good
You've never seen a brighter, breezier lynch mob than the one that terrorizes poor Paul Johnson (Peter Paige, who also wrote and directed) in Say Uncle, a candy-colored comedy with a message. Paul is a painter in Portland who is having some life transition problems. But unlike many who have trouble moving from adolescence to adulthood, Paul is having trouble moving from childhood to adolescence, and that's a disturbing situation when you're over 30 years old.

Paul's love for and identification with children is apparent when he interacts with the light of his life, his adorable two-year-old godson Mason. But when Mason and his parents move to Japan, Paul becomes a bit unhinged and desperately searches for ways to replace the joy he felt with Mason. Big mistake, Paul.

Rat Race Review


Very Good
Crazies, Lucille Ball impersonators, redneck garage mechanics, neo-Nazis, dykes on bikes, cross-dressers, electrified dogs, flying cows, vomit contests, vindictive girlfriends, and Rowan Atkinson's horrible Italian accent are the elements of success for Rat Race, the latest hilarious remake of It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

I know how bad it sounds. But thanks to the comedic talents of Jon Lovitz, Atkinson, John Cleese, and Whoopi Goldberg, plus a sharp script written by Andy Breckman (a writer for TV Funhouse and one of the best Richard Pryor movies, Moving) Rat Race is much better than it should be. In the end, it's summer junk food for the soul.

Hocus Pocus Review


OK
Bette Midler, never known for subtlety, got more permission to overact here than should be allowed by law. Not only is she playing a witch, but her hair is red and done up into a fright 'do, and two little hominy teeth jut out over her lower lip. Hocus Pocus, Disney's family-friendly witch-burning film, also features tons of "wow look how young they used to be!" performances from Thora Birch, Vinessa Shaw, and a few others. Modern audiences will probably enjoy watching a bizarre Sarah Jessica Parker ham it up as one of a trio of Salem-era witches reincarnated in the 1990s (they ride vacuum cleaners!) and after the children of the town. Too bad the story is so disposable.

Rat Race Review


Weak

After a generation on hiatus, the crazy, ensemble-cast chase comedy is back with an MTV vengeance in "Rat Race," a cornball marathon between a dozen second-tier stars vying for a $2 million booty.

The gimmick: To entertain his high-rolling clientele, a Las Vegas hotelier -- played by John Cleese with a slightly insane, toothy-dentured grin -- recruits an oddball assortment of zealous casino tourists to dash across the desert to New Mexico in search of a bus station locker where the loot has been stashed. The runners think it's all a zany promotion for Cleese's resort, but in the penthouse billionaires from all over the world are placing high-stakes bets on who will get there first, just for rich-guy kicks.

The players: Jon Lovitz is an chintzy, unemployed soccer dad who red-lines his minivan while dragging his family along, on the pretense of a job offer so he doesn't get chewed out for ruining their vacation. He catches hell anyway when the car breaks down outside a "white power" roadside attraction and they steal Hitler's limo to complete the pilgrimage.
