The Single Mom's Club

Tyler Perry's The Single Mom's Club Trailer


Feeling underappreciated and frequently undermined, many single mothers have to go through a lot to keep their children happy and to make sure they have as normal a life as possible. However, no matter how hard one might try, sometimes the children will inevitably get themselves into trouble and when five mothers of very different backgrounds are called into school when their offspring are found vandalising the school, they are forced to work together to organise and chair the upcoming annual fundraiser. The parents soon find, however, that they have much more in common than they initially thought and decide to set up a support group for desperate single mothers going through similar experiences. With new people there for each other, they help one another to find love again and get their confused and hectic lives back on track.

The Best Man Holiday Trailer


It's been fifteen years since the release of Harper Stewart's inflammatory autobiographical novel and the wedding of his best friend Lance, and now he is reuniting once again with his friends from college - also including Julian Murch and Quentin Spivey - over the course of the Christmas holiday period. He is now married to his then girlfriend Robin and he still has his friends in spite of some incriminating details in his book that could've ruined everything with the people he cared about most during Lance's tense wedding ceremony. But now he has more to contend with as he is reunited with old flames, former rivals and new arrivals who could shake things up again as Christmas approaches.

Are We Done Yet? is a follow-up to Revolution Studios hilarious 2005 family comedy Are We There Yet? and picks up where the last story left off. Now married to Suzanne (Nia Long), Nick Persons (Ice Cube) has bought a quiet suburban house to escape the rat race of the big city and to provide more space for his new wife and kids Lindsey and Kevin (Aleisha Allen and Philip Daniel Bolden).

Premonition Review


OK
Forgive me for treading lightly through this Premonition review, but the last time I tried to discuss the film in detail, Sony reprimanded me.

The reason I find this so funny is because the out-of-order thriller consciously jumbles its supernatural narrative in an effort to dodge easy explanations. You're going to want to discuss possible theories with those who've seen it, which is exactly what I planned to do while working the Premonition press junket weeks ago.

Baadasssss! Review


Very Good
Baadasssss! is a rollicking, high-energy, and monumentally-titled film re-creation of the trials and travails of the making of Melvin Van Peeble's 1971 black independent hit Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song.

The film, based mainly on Melvin Van Peeples' book about making the film, illustrates many of the difficulties that plagued it; from financial troubles and crew infighting, to the demanding logistics of the shoot and family dilemmas, all of which made the entire production nearly fall apart.

In Too Deep Review


Terrible
The only thing "too deep" about this movie is the apparent lack of respect its creators must have for audiences -- it is literally an insult that such an abysmal failure has made it to market. In Too Deep has to be the unfortunate vehicle conceived to sell an equally worthless soundtrack, the product of some greedy forces who seek to profit from a story that regularly detours gratuitously senseless violence on its course to complete disappointment.

Jeff Collins (Omar Epps) is a recent Police Academy graduate. His first assignment is to infiltrate the city's largest narcotics ring and take down druglord Dwayne "God" Giddens (LL Cool J). In order to get close enough to God and make an arrest, Collins [alter ego J. Reed] is forced to plunge further and further into criminal activity himself. Clashes with the Captain (Stanley Tucci) over crossing the line between effective undercover work and unjustifiable violence, and a love affair (Nia Long), are mandatory sub-plots in the formulaic script. Every element of the story is underdeveloped and flat, none providing additional value or even distraction. It's too bad that Omar Epps' solid performance is buried almost as deeply as the pool queue God uses to torture a victim during one of his outbreaks.

Boiler Room Review


OK

A Generation X cautionary tale about greed and impatience, "Boiler Room" is a sharp-edged, adrenaline-driven movie that takes place in the eat-or-be-eaten world of crooked stock trading.

Populated by 25-year-old, overnight millionaires who wear their testosterone on the sleeves of their tailored Armani suits, this is an imposing, vigorous and pulsating picture that could have been mighty and portentous if writer-director Ben Younger hadn't cribbed half the script from "Wall Street" and "Glengarry Glen Ross."

Giovanni Ribisi ("The Mod Squad") plays an unscrupulous college dropout looking to make a quick buck with an underground casino he runs from his rented row house. But he starts seeing much bigger dollar signs when a newly-rich (and Ferrari-driving) acquaintance recruits him to cold-call moneyed suckers and pitch them investments for his suspicious brokerage startup.

Held Up Review


Bad

Stranded at a desert convenience store by his angry girlfriend (Nia Long) who has just discovered he spent their nest egg on a vintage Studebaker, Jamie Foxx is in the wrong place at the wrong time in "Held Up," becoming the most loud-mouthed of a handful of comically diverse hostages when a clumsy virgin hold-up man bungles a robbery at the store.

In its first 10 minutes -- when the movie still looks like it might be about Foxx trying to get his girlfriend back -- the movie shows a pinch of promise. Foxx and Long are both entertaining actors that could carry off a capricious black Bickersons comedy in their sleep.

But any semblance of structure or potential for good laughs exits the movie with Long in the first reel and the balance is spent on shopworn random sketch comedy episodes that the players seem to be making up on the spot while giving each other "just play along!" sideways glances.

Alfie Review


Good

Playing an inveterate womanizer as a sympathetic hero didn't work especially well for Michael Caine in 1966's "Alfie." He was Oscar-nominated for the performance, but his title character was a misogynistic, egomaniacal cad -- taking advantage of vulnerable women, then disposing of them offhandedly. Even when a vague health problem became a plot point meant to turn his life around, there was still nothing redeemable about the jerk.

On the other hand, in this year's "Alfie" remake, the irresistible Jude Law plays a more credibly charismatic and playful playboy whose contented superficiality steadily gives way to emerging self-awareness and perceptible depth -- which surprises even Alfie himself.

As the wily rake admits -- frankly, charmingly and direct-to-camera -- his concurrent affairs with a bevy of Manhattan beauties are a product of good looks, practiced flattery, an upscale metrosexual wardrobe, his English accent and the fact that he drives a limo.
