The Rebound Review


Good
A charming and observant tone helps lift this above most romantic comedies, at least until the formula kicks in during the final rather contrived act. But until then, it keeps us happily smiling and sighing along.

After she catches her husband cheating, 40-year-old Sandy (Zeta-Jones) takes her two kids (Gould and Cherry) and moves into Manhattan. She finds an entry-level job and a flat above a coffee shop, where recently divorced 25-year-old barista Aram (Bartha) is happy to watch the kids. Meanwhile, Sandy's pal Daphne (Grant) urges her to get back out on the dating scene, but after a few disastrous nights the babysitter starts to look like a possibility.

But can they overcome their age difference and recover from their bad past relationships?

The Rebound Trailer


When Sandy discovers her husband is cheating on her she decides it's time to make a break and leave her suburban life for a new start in the city.

Freshly divorced, Sandy and her two kids move into an apartment and it doesn't take long for Sandy to employ a nanny for the kids. Aram is a 25 year old waiter currently working in a coffee shop. Still uncertain of his future, Aram agrees to start looking after the kids. One thing leads to another and it doesn't take long for Sandy and the nanny to form a bond and eventually a relationship; but with such an age difference and Sandy's recent divorce, what really can come from their future together?

Starring: Catherine Zeta Jones, Justin Bartha, Megan Byrne, Joanna Gleason, John Schneider, Lynn Whitfield, Art Garfunkel


Directed by: Bart Freundlich

Hard Lessons Review


Weak
Poor Denzel. Before he won an Oscar or two, he had to work on TV movie stuff like The George McKenna Story, a docudrama promptly forgotten and now being reissued with the street-friendly title Hard Lessons.

Typical of any mid-1980s after-school special, Washington stars as the (real person) George McKenna, who cleaned up notorious, gang-infested, drug-addled Los Angeles High School with such tricks as mandating a dress code and enforcing homework.

Madea's Family Reunion Review


OK
Sometimes it's not good to cross genres too far.

Genres, like many things in life, work well when slightly blended together. Take darkly comic thrillers or lighthearted romantic comedies - they're both in the same general emotional ballpark. On the opposite end of the spectrum might be, say, making a movie that's equal parts comedy-free romance, transvestite and fart comedy, and domestic violence drama.

Eve's Bayou Review


Essential
"Memory is a selection of images, some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. The summer I killed my father, I was ten years old." This shocking opening line not only sets the tone but starts the galloping pace of the psychological thriller Eve's Bayou. It is the kind of line taught in writing school, a line that can sustain an entire story with its cool malice.

Eve's Bayou is a film shocking in methods and motives.

A Thin Line Between Love And Hate Review


Good
There's a thin line between love and hate, and there's an equally thin line between cute and campy, and Martin Lawrence's comedy version of Fatal Attraction ends up on both sides of the line, and it's hard to tell where the movie's going from one scene to the next. Still, it has enough comedy (courtesy of its sparring leads, with Whitfield going berserk on Lawrence's playa) to make it worth a modest amount of attention. Any movie with a bar called Chocolate City can't be all bad, right?

Head Of State Review


OK

Smart, sharp political satire it's not. But Chris Rock's "Head of State" -- the comedian's directorial debut in which he plays a black man running for president -- mixes a few stinging zingers into its generally crowd-pleasing brand of snickers and knee-slappers.

When asked if he'll step in for the Democratic candidate who died when his plane and his running mate's plane "crashed into each other over Virginia," Mays Gilliam (Rock), a Washington, D.C. alderman, has a split-second flash forward to being shot at his inaugural address before even finishing the line "My fellow Americans..." But he accepts the nomination anyway.

He's provided a specially trained, sworn-to-secrecy "super whore" -- a post-Clinton perk devised to help Democratic candidates avoid sex scandals.
