West Is West Review


Very Good
It's been 11 years since we last caught up with the Khan family, although only five have passed in their lives. And while this sequel isn't as sharply funny as 1999's East Is East, it has some nice things to say about growing up in a multi-cultural society.

In 1976 Salford, George and Ella (Puri and Bassett) only have one child left at home, 15-year-old Sajid (Khan). And he's a real handful, feeling even more fiercely English than his older siblings. So George decides to cart him off to the Old Country to gain some respect for his heritage. What George doesn't count on is learning a lesson himself, because once in Pakistan he's confronted with the life he left 30 years earlier, including a wife (Arun) and daughters who have been waiting for him.

Janice Beard: 45 Words Per Minute Review


OK
Janice Beard is frequently compared to Amelie. Or more to the point, Janice Beard's producers frequently compare it to Amelie, which is as scurrilous a comparison as you can find.

While both films star single girls with a fondness for fantasy life, Eileen Walsh's Janice isn't half as charming as Audrey Tautou's French pixie. How so? While Amelie spends her days in bistros and on amazing adventures in her neighborhood, Janice works as a relatively incompetent temp in Scotland. Janice's fantasies are drawn from her attempts to entertain her mother, who went crazy when Janice's father died during mom's childbirth. (Har har!) While Amelie takes great pains to appear stylish (oh, that hair!), Janice is a wallflower, dressed in hand-me-downs, with bug eyes and buckteeth, a la Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding, a film which Janice Beard offers a far stronger resemblance to than Amelie.
