Drumline Review


OK
I've always thought of marching bandmembers as just a bunch of geeks who walk about, stroking their instruments while swapping stories from band camp. I feared Drumline would be two hours of these musician wannabes screeching out simple notes on their secondhand instruments. To my surprise, Drumline is not just another recital from band camp; however, it's no symphony either.

The film centers around Devon (Nick Cannon), a freshman recruited to attend Atlanta A&T University on a full ride scholarship to play in the school's marching band. He's an overachiever with a chip on his shoulder who thinks he knows everything about playing the drums. At tryouts, which look more like boot camp, Devon disrespects his band director Dr. Aaron Lee (Orlando Jones) by refusing to participate with the rest of the group. A power struggle soon ensues between Devon and his drumline section leader Sean (Leonard Roberts) who feels the freshman's talent threatens his position at the top of the food chain.

Lip Service Review


Weak
With amusing insidery comments about attending "that sucky arts college in the Bay Area," Lip Service starts off as funny but quickly becomes unlikely and dull as it degenerates into a female version of The Odd Couple. Jami Gertz and Sybil Temchen play old college roommates who reunite years later in Temchen's upscale furniture store. The catch: Temchen feels guilty for selling Gertz's chair as her own design so she takes her in. The catch: Gertz is a slut, a drunk, and generally anti-social. And Temchen is the opposite. Hijinks ensue as they learn about life from each other or until you fall asleep, whichever comes first.
