During the interview the cast revealed some secrets about the movie, including that initially Richard Gere wasn’t keen on the part of Edward at all. "The joke was you could put a suit on a goat and it would work,” Gere said of his character in the initial script. “So I didn’t get it.”

Havoc Review


Good
Eventually, every girl grows up. Cinema dictates this. Sometimes, that move into adulthood is seamless (see Jodie Foster, Claire Danes, Scarlett Johanssen, Kirsten Dunst). Sometimes it is agonizingly painful (see the Olsen twins, Hilary Duff, and -- arguably -- Drew Barrymore).

Sometimes it is as curious as all get-out (see Anne Hathaway in Havoc). I don't know if I've ever seen a more radical departure of film roles than Hathaway's decision to go from the Princess Diaries films to this one. Hathaway's former work is almost unilaterally square in the rated-G realm. Her PG-rated movies earned those ratings primarily due to events like Hathaway falling on her butt.

Sex, Lies, And Videotape Review


Excellent
Steven Soderbergh didn't just launch the whole movies-with-all-lowercase-titles craze (as it's commonly written), he also launched the '90s rebirth of independent cinema with this singular effort. Mostly a chatty drama about sex in various levels of perversion, the film's momentum comes from the sudden arrival of a sexually dysfunctional James Spader, who throws a wrench into the lives of the other three principals -- a married couple and the wife's sister, engaged in a sad love triangle. Earnestly acted and expertly directed by Soderbergh in his major directorial debut, the film is a piece for film students and cinema fans alike.

With Friends Like These... Review


OK
Hollywood farces are always hard to pull off, and this one-joke movie proves increasingly frustrating despite a few bright moments. Robert Costanzo stars as an out-of-work character actor in L.A. who gets the call to read for the part of Al Capone in an upcoming Scorsese film. Of course, he blabs to all his friends and soon enough, they're all up for the part. Most of the film's scenes are predicated by "You gotta promise not to tell anyone..." and of course they invariably do. But backstabbing has never been more repetitive. By the time Scorsese makes his cameo appearance, give yourself a point if you still care who gets the part. Watch for Bill Murray in a stellar yet miniscule role.

Pretty Woman Review


Excellent
Every cliché has at least one perfect example: An "Exhibit A" that makes the hidden good side of the cliché come to light and makes the jaded tired old story new again. For the tale of the hooker with the heart of gold, the perfect example is Petty Woman.

You have a dapper, somewhat older wealthy man (Richard Gere), a surprisingly attractive prostitute (Julia Roberts), a toadie type (Jason Alexander) bent on breaking up the high roller and the ho, and the kindly gent (Hector Elizondo) who teaches the trailer trash how to hang with the upper crust.

Quigley Down Under Review


Excellent
I don't know when the law was passed, but action movies are now required to have at least half of their content full of revved up, gravity defying, John Woo influenced kung fu acrobatics. Even classic literature is veering in that direction; witness (in my case, with a pained look) the preview for The Musketeer. It's only a matter of time before Helena Bonham Carter and Ian Holm start running on treetops, bellowing lines from King Lear. Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing that, come to think of it.

With such a glut of over-choreographed action flicks, maybe that's why I was so excited to watch Quigley Down Under, the 1990 cowboy flick starring Tom Selleck and Laura San Giacomo. Directed by Lonesome Dove's Simon Wincer, it's a simple, very entertaining tale. Within the movie's first five minutes, there's a fistfight and everyone adheres to the laws of gravity. That's a good sign.
