Times Square Trailer


Pamela Pearl finds herself emotionally cut off from her wealthy father, a conservative city commissioner, who has her sent to a New York psychiatric hospital for evaluation. It's there she meets wild child Nicky Marotta, who has big dreams of becoming a star and encourages Pamela's poetry. They decide to escape the hospital and go on the run, hiding out and setting up a band. Meanwhile, radio DJ Johnny LaGuardia has caught wind of the missing girls and covers the story on his show. After eventually meeting the girls, they form a close bond and Pamela uses the station to reach out to her hypocritical father. She learns to come out of her shell and find her own identity, but when she's ready to return home, Nicky wants to stay as she is; independent and performing illegal gigs in Times Square. Teenage self-discovery can be a tumultuous thing - and these girls need each other to survive it.

The Perez Family Review


Bad
How can you have a Perez family without Rosie? Put aside the fact that Tomei and Huston are decidedly not Cuban, I had to read a plot summary to find out this was supposed to be a comedy. Oh really, now? This story, adapted from a novel, picks up the fragments of at least four Perezes, Cuban refugees who find themselves inventing a "family" to better gain political asylum. The plot centers around Molina's search for long-list (real) wife Huston, only he falls in love with slut Tomei, while Huston falls for cop Palminteri. Poor Trini Alvarado is wasted as Huston's wide-eyed sidekick. Everyone else is wasted on a hopelessly dull story which positively puts you to sleep.

Little Women (1994) Review


Excellent
Hollywood did put out one decent flick over the 1994 holidays, and that was Little Women, another remake of Louisa May Alcott's famed novel. Winona Ryder steals the show, and most of the supporting cast are perfect. The story of Little Women is given a new breath of life with this film, and it is still as relevant about our place in the world and overcoming its man-made obstacles as it was when it was written. I mean, I'm like, you know, a guy... and I really dug the movie. Alvarado and Mathis shine above an altogether good cast (while Danes disappoints).

The Frighteners Review


Excellent
Ghostbusters meets Twin Peaks? Michael J. Fox's comeback movie? A film about a lazy guy who catches ghosts for a living? A supporting cast of unknowns? Does anyone want to see a movie like this?

Yes! And you'd better get to the theater quick, because The Frighteners, in a manner suggested be the above questions, will not make huge waves at the box office in a crowded field of summer blockbusters.

American Friends Review


OK
A quaint true story, American Friends tells the dated fable of an Oxford scholar (Palin) in the mid 1800s who wrestles with abandoning his teaching post at the no-girls-allowed institution in order to run off to the mountains with an American girl (Alvarado). Not quite your Merchant-Ivory bodice-ripper, this tame little number likely wouldn't have even been made if it wasn't about Palin's great grandfather... Hmm...

Mrs. Soffel Review


Good
True stories don't get much steamier. At the turn of the century, a prison warden's uber-religious wife (Keaton) falls in love with a man on death row (Gibson). She helps him and his brother escape, and together the three go on the run, trying to make it to Canada.
