Ruehl's Traffic Collision Sends Motorist To Hospital


Mercedes Ruehl

A motorbike rider was hospitalised with a leg injury after a collision with veteran actress Mercedes Ruehl's car in New York on Friday (11Sep09).

Entourage star Ruehl, who plays mother to Adrian Grenier's character in the hit U.S. TV drama, was driving through East Hampton when she reportedly failed to yield to the biker while making a turn.

The unnamed 24-year-old collided with the rear of Ruehl's vehicle and was taken to Southampton Hospital with an injured leg, according to the New York Post. No further information regarding his condition was available as WENN went to press.

Ruehl was given a ticket for failing to yield the right of way.

Ruehl Rewarded With Perfume For Harrowing Role


Mercedes Ruehl

Actress Mercedes Ruehl was thrilled when the mother of murdered transgender woman GWEN ARAUJO rewarded her with a bottle of perfume for portraying her in a harrowing new TV film. Ruehl was worried Araujo's mum, SYLVIA, would not be pleased with her role in A GIRL LIKE ME: THE GWEN ARAUJO STORY because it was such a heartbreaking project. But the devastated mother, who has become a leading transgender activist following her daughter's hate crime death, felt the actress was destined to play her. Ruehl states, "She always wore the perfume Tommy Girl (Hilfiger) because that's what Gwen wore. She gave me a bottle. "She feels in close contact with her daughter on a spiritual plane and believed it was no mistake that we were summoned to make the film." But despite portraying Sylvia Araujo, who was forced to come to terms with her son physically becoming a woman, the actress fears she still wouldn't be as brave if one of her two sons expressed a desire to switch sex. She adds, "There is enough of a conventional bourgeois many generations back in me that I would have to grow in courage."

Big Review


Excellent
Now an iconic, breakthrough performance for Tom Hanks, Big is 100% cotton candy fun, an Adam Sandler movie with more of a brain and a heart. Even a soul. The story has become timeless -- and it's kept Penny Marshall's career alive for almot 20 years now -- about a boy who sees that adults have everything that he doesn't, so he wishes to be "big." When he gets his wish, comedy and some touching moments where young Josh learns, real quick, about the difference between kids and grown-ups. Very funny, with good performances from everyone in the film. Though, if her kid was ostensibly kidnapped, why wouldn't mom (Mercedes Ruehl) call the cops?

The Minus Man Review


Terrible
I'm still trying to figure out how to look at The Minus Man. Either it's supposed to be a dark, black comedy, or it's supposed to be a thoughtful, pensive drama/thriller a la Sling Blade.

Either way, it's a dismal failure.

What's Cooking? Review


Weak
Indian filmmaker Gurinder Chadha's feminine feast drama What's Cooking? serves up the ingredients for a potential tasty meal, but the remaining aftertaste leaves much to be desired. In the film, Chadha (Bhaji on the Beach) concocts a multi-ethnic, estrogen-driven drama that overextends itself to hysteria. The notion of profiling a broad range of distinctive, Los Angeles-based families preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday makes for an entertaining sociological premise, but Chandra's concentration on these culturally diverse women and their loved ones feels strained and contrived. She tries gallantly to fortify this film with her brand of cinematic seasoning, but the characters come off as a bunch of overdramatic caricatures going through the prototypical TV-movie-of-the-week antics. Consequently, What's Cooking? is a flavorless fable that is as hard to swallow as a piece of tough turkey.

The film's families consist of African-American, Asian, Jewish, and Hispanic protagonists, all exaggerated characters who weave in and out of hackneyed plots. From the Jewish perspective, there's the tongue-tied matriarch Seelig (Lainie Kazan) who has an annoyingly cute way of enunciating certain words. Ma Seelig is somewhat speechless when she eventually gets to meet her daughter Rachel's (Kyra Sedgwick) lesbian lover Carla (Julianna Margulies, late of television's ER). Then there's the Spanish viewpoint where an estranged couple, the Avilas (Mercedes Ruehl and Victor Rivers), are forced to reunite upon the insistence of their adult children. There's also obvious tension when Vietnamese Jimmy Nguyen (Will Yun Lee) dares to play footsies with Hispanic Gina Avilas (Isidra Vega). And the black family the Williamses (headed up by Alfre Woodard and Dennis Haysbert) has issues as well.

The Amati Girls Review


Unbearable
Did you hate those cheesy PBS after-school specials when you were a kid? The ones where the smallest conflict was made into a volcanic crisis but all was miraculously solved within a half an hour's time? If your answer is "yes", stay away from The Amati Girls.

Written and directed by Anne De Salvo, this sickeningly saccharine 91 minutes revolves around a supposedly tight-knit, triple-generation family of women. Each character embodies the ultimate in annoying stereotypes, from selfless martyr to irresponsible wanderer. And of course, they each have a male in their life to represent the standard issues of women's liberation from 30 years ago.

The Minus Man Review


OK

Early on in "The Minus Man" you're not quite sure what you're seeing. There's a drifter named Vann (Owen Wilson) who lands in a small town. He's a polite, upright joe, but there's something not right about him that's hard to pin down.

He moves into with a tormented couple (Mercedes Ruehl and Brian Cox), who rent him the untouched room that once belonged to their missing (or is she dead?) daughter. He gets a job at the Post Office and is quickly promoted from sorter to carrier based on little more than his queer congeniality. He clumsily romances another postal employee (Janeane Garofalo in the cynicism-free role of an insecure romantic doormat), and just as the movie starts to look like a slice of life/ensemble of oddballs flick, townspeople start disappearing.

No one suspects Vann, of course. At first, not even the audience realizes they should. But Vann, you see, is a serial killer.

What's Cooking? Review


Weak

A talented ensemble cast brings an extremely authentic family dynamic to "What's Cooking?," a satisfying four-course cross-section of ethnic American clans gathering for their Thanksgiving dinners.

Conceived by director Gurinder Chadha as a celebration of diversity, the film opens with an ironic shot of an advertisement on the side of a Los Angeles bus featuring an airbrushed white-bread family carving a turkey. Chadha then moves inside the bus to show the rainbow of races living together in the area, then on into a grocery store, where she picks up her first story in which a young Mexican-American man (Douglas Spain) bumps into his exiled father (Victor Rivers) and invites him home for Thanksgiving dinner.

This doesn't sit too well with his mother (Mercedes Ruehl), who had kicked Rivers out after discovering he'd had an affair. But she's prepared to make the best of it as her huge family gathers for their traditional daylong holiday preparations, mixing turkey with a cornucopia of Latino delicacies.
