TMNT Review


OK
On Sunday night, a friend of mine recanted his experience of seeing TMNT, the digitally-animated follow up to the three live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films that were released in the early/mid-'90s. As he put it, he walked into the theater and was greeted by the ingratiating sound of children yelping and hollering with their parents solemnly sitting shotgun. Being nostalgic for his days of Turtle fandom, he sat down and noticed four other men of post-college age waiting in the tangle web of toddlers. There was a sense of comradery there as they all realized, for better or for worse, they were there simply for nostalgia.

This was also my feeling while viewing the first incarnation of Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo, and Michelangelo to come around in ten-plus years. There was no critical lens through which I chose to watch it; it simply satisfied something that was missing. Everyone has one: Another friend expressed that he had enjoyed Ghost Rider on the basic terms of it's, as he put it, "bad-assery."

I Love You, Don't Touch Me! Review


Extraordinary
What do you get when you take a hopeless romantic virgin and dip her into the strange world of overly frank, modern ('90s) sexuality? I Love You, Don't Touch Me! -- a refreshingly fun, frequently provocative flick that leaves you feeling strangely warm despite its raunchy revelry.

Marla Schaffel plays Katie, a 25 year-old struggling singer in Los Angeles who's more "in love with love" than into having an actual relationship. Ever since the two-timing of her first love, she's dated a litany of "trolls, perverts, or liars," while clinging to an infatuated friend, Ben (Mitchell Whitfield).

Amy's O Review


OK
Check it out, it's the Julie Davis show!

The director of indie faves I Love You, Don't Touch Me! and All Over the Guy makes a star turn here (not to mention directing herself, writing for herself, and producing herself) in a role that is almost undoubtedly Julie Davis in the guise of "Amy."

My Cousin Vinny Review


Excellent
Marisa Tomei won one of the most controversial Oscars ever for her brash performance as Joe Pesci's dumbass lawyer girlfriend in this film, and -- her high, loud voice aside -- she's the least memorable part of the film. Rather, a genuinely funny script with dialogue perfectly delivered by Pesci ("What is a grit!?") gets tons of laughs. After all, he's a gambino wannabe lawyer trapped in a Southern small town. Michael J. Fox in the South doesn't get laughs. Pesci does. Very funny fish-out-of-water flick and, Oscar notwithstanding, generally underrated.

Best Men Review


OK
Tamra Davis, who directed a series of bombs like Billy Madison and Half Baked, brings us another fitting entry, full of B-list stars and a plot involving Flanery as a Shakespeare-spouting bank robber who decides to knock over an S&L on the way to Wilson's wedding. Uh huh.

Lost & Found Review


Weak
At last the public's thirst for a David Spade-Sophie Marceau comedy is quenched with this story of a hapless restaurant owner who kidnaps his neighbor's dog in order to get cozy with her. Harmless, yet painfully stupid. The first down a black hole sucking that Sophie Marceau's career has taken since Braveheart. (See also The World is Not Enough.)
