The Lovemaster Review


Very Good
Comedian Craig Shoemaker says pretty early on in his new film The Lovemaster, "My life is my act!"

He's not joking, and if you've ever heard any of Shoemaker's stand-up material, you know what you're in for with his feature film, where Shoemaker blends his multiple stage personalities with stories about growing up, the mysteries of women, and 1970s television, the result being a campy goulash of howlingly-funny comedy.

Snow Dogs Review


Bad
When I first saw the trailer for Snow Dogs in front of Monsters, Inc., I couldn't believe what I was seeing or hearing. Cuba Gooding Jr. as a dentist in Miami who inherits a house and a team of sled dogs in Alaska, and chooses to move there and make the best of things. It's all kind of a blur, but then there were a lot of shots of him being cold; him being a city "slicker" in the wilderness; and him screaming because he's either slipping, falling, being dragged, or being chased by some kind of animal. All the while, "Who Let the Dogs Out" plays over his screams.

Cool Runnings Review


Good
Remember the second miracle on ice, the Jamaican bobsled team? Well after the international joke wore off (I seem to remember seeing a t-shirt or two during college) there was the movie Cool Runnings, which dramatizes the tumultuous road to the Olympics (which did everything in its power to keep the team out) and their thrilling last place finish. Of course, this isn't a movie about winning. It's about winning not being everything; it's almost the anti-sports movie. While the film is cute and charming, it isn't without its copious cliches. All in all, it's pretty much as expected.
