Peter Billingsley Producing Christmas Story Musical


Peter Billingsley

Peter Billingsley, the American actor best known for his role as 'Ralphie' in the classic festive movie 'A Christmas Story', is adapting the much-loved film for the stage after being made executive producer of 'A Christmas Story: The Musical', reports CBS News. Billingsley has produced a number of high-profile projects in recent years, most notably 'Iron Man', and 'Four Christmases'.

The stage play is set to run through to December 30th 2010 at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, Washington, and is based on the original 1983 movie. The film follows the story of a 9-year-old boy who has his heart set on his 'dream' Christmas gift, an 'Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle', however, his mother is thoroughly against the idea and tells him he'd 'shoot his own eye out' if he were bought the gift. In a recent interview, former child-star Billingsley said that the movie had "always meant a lot" to him personally.

The musical, which is directed by the award-winning playwright ERIC ROSEN, also stars CLARKE HALLUM as 'Ralphie', as well as the New York based actor JOHN BOLTON, and ANNE ALLGOOD.

Four Christmases Review


Good
Before a single joke is told, Seth Gordon's Four Christmases earns a positive grade for its inspired casting.

I'm not talking about Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon, who are asked to do what they've done in previous comedies, and happily oblige. Vaughn, in particular, continues to ride that motor-mouthed ego shtick of his with very humorous results. His condescending personality should have worn out its welcome shortly after Wedding Crashers, yet somehow it still manages to entertain.

Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood To The Heartland Review


Good
Professional comics fascinate me. Why would anyone voluntarily stand before a firing squad? Yet the potential for laughter lures the most insecure, angry, objectionable, self-loathing, and hilarious personalities to the microphone stand on a nightly basis.

Director Christian Charles made a documentary in 2002 about Jerry Seinfeld's attempt to piece together a show's worth of material after his famous sitcom came to a close. Titled Comedian, the movie offered candid interviews with Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Colin Quinn, and Bill Cosby as it presented an insightful glance into the hearts, guts, and minds of these seasoned funnymen.

A Christmas Story Director Dies In Car Crash


A Christmas Story Peter Billingsley Black Christmas Sylvester Stallone Dolly Parton

ROBERT CLARK, the man who made classic holiday movie A Christmas Story, has been killed in a California car crash.
The 67-year-old director and his son, 22, were both killed when the Infiniti they were driving collided with a GMC Yukon sports utility vehicle in Pacific Palisades at 2.30am yesterday morning (04APR07).
It has been reported that the driver of the Yukon was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the fatal accident and will be booked for investigation of gross vehicular manslaughter, upon his release from hospital.
Clark's 1983 festive film, starring Peter Billingsley, has become a Christmas staple for American TV fans and often runs back-to-back during marathons on Christmas Day.
Clark is also well known for his horror movies, which include Black Christmas and CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS. He was also the director of 1981 sex farce PORKY'S.
His other memorable films included TURK 182, LOOSE CANNONS and RHINESTONE, which starred Sylvester Stallone and Dolly Parton.

The Break-Up (2006) Review


Weak
In most romantic comedies, some find themselves pining for the two leads to finally put their differences aside and reunite, slow dancing while an overused R&B tune plays in the background and the comic relief best friend tells a last joke. It's a genre that's been done to death, of course, but perfectly enjoyable when all the elements are in alignment. When the elements aren't there, however, the result is fairly ugly. The Break-Up -- a solid argument against real-life couples being allowed to play opposite each other in purportedly romantic films -- spends about five minutes setting up Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston as a couple and then proceeds to fill the rest of its running time with all the reasons why they really should break up; and well before it's over you'll be wishing they'd just call it quits.

Accomplishing the quite difficult task of neutering the normally volcanic presence that is Vaughn and further dampening Aniston's already meek comedic abilities, The Break-Up takes some quite considerable assets and squanders them completely. Vaughn and Aniston play Gary and Brooke, a couple who meet-cute at a Cubs game, are shacked up together in a nice downtown condo before the end of the credits, and are relentlessly bickering and splitting up just a few minutes later. Vaughn plays Gary as a more muted and oafish version of his standard motormouth self -- not a pleasant creation -- which leads one to believe that the film will eventually allow him to use his charm to win back the uptight and angry but still in-love Brooke. The critic's oath precludes this writer from giving away the admittedly surprising (though not necessarily in a good way) ending, but what can be said is that little in this film goes as expected.
