Kissing A Fool Review


Weak
Droll and patently unbelievable, Kissing a Fool invites you to believe that David Schwimmer is a sports buff and, ya know, a real ladies' man. If you find Schwimmer the sexy type, Fool will be right up your alley. If, like the rest of us, you think lil' Dave is a geek -- and you find the "I'm testing my fiancee to see if she'll cheat on me" plot to be distasteful -- then you may want to pass. A few moments of watchability (and the pleasingly pretty Avital) punctuated by flat jokes a movie do not make.

Bad Seed (2001) Review


Weak
Despite an atrocious title, I actually held out hope for the direct-to-video Bad Seed's intriguing premise.

The film opens as man (Luke Wilson) confronts by his wife (Mili Avital), who screams in admission that she is having an affair. Enraged, he storms out of the house. When he returns, she is dead, and her now estranged boyfriend (Norman Reedus) is suspect. So our hero takes matters into his own hands, finds the boyfriend, and kills him.

Polish Wedding Review


OK
I have absolutely no idea how this film, by first-timer Connelly, got made. Take a big lecherous Italian family melodrama and replace it with a Polish family, and you've got this pretty dull pic.

The Young Girl And The Monsoon Review


Good
A finger-snapping swing soundtrack and the Manhattan skyline are accompanied by the sarcastic voice-over of a 13-year-old kid. Sounds like another one of those Woody Allen movies, or, a more appropriate comparison, Don Roos (Bounce). Writer-director James Ryan's first feature is a fairly traditional indie "relationship" film about a weekend dad, Hank (Terry Kinney, The House of Mirth), coming to terms with his coming-of-age daughter of 13 years, Constance (Ellen Muth), and his perky young model girlfriend (Mili Avital, Polish Wedding). They all learn from one another.

Did you ever notice that all those quirky (read: mundane) indies have such flashy titles? The Myth of Fingerprints, The Tao of Steve, Dream With the Fishes... this one happens to be called The Young Girl and the Monsoon. Don't be too quick to pigeonhole this particular "quirk" into a category of vapid mediocrity, though. Ryan shows a perceptive knack for small moments of familial tenderness found in unlikely places, including a Central Park boxing match between daddy and daughter that runs the gamut from rage to bliss. He arouses pathos in a Chinese restaurant sequence where Constance demands that daddy carry her to the door. Such, such are the joys of handling a teenage girl going insane on the bridge to adulthood.

Stargate Review


OK
When did I miss the event that made Stargate worthy of an "Ultimate Edition" DVD, complete with director's cut? I guess that MacGyver-starring TV show thing is more popular than I thought.

Anyway, if you're unfamiliar with Stargate, the story is pretty straightforward. Military types unearth a big metal ring encoded with Egyptian hieroglyphics, then import a kooky archeologist (James Spader) to figure out what it does -- which, within 30 minutes, involves the opening up of a portal to another world, millions of light years away.
