Film Review: ‘Love the Coopers’

Film Review: ‘Love the Coopers’
Fittingly given that its title sounds like a demand, “Love the Coopers” peddles holiday sorrow, cheer and uplift with off-putting insistence. Director Jessie Nelson’s dramedy follows a familiar family-reunion template in detailing the Yuletide get-together of the Coopers, a clan fracturing under the weight of divorces, unemployment, unrealized dreams and loneliness — as well as past joys that all its members desperately want to reclaim. Decked out in the usual tinsel-and-mistletoe trappings, the film lurches awkwardly between gloominess and giddiness, never hitting the boisterously bittersweet groove it seeks. Failing to carve out an identity distinct from its many subgenre predecessors, this slushy feel-good saga faces a stormy theatrical forecast at best.

Ten years after “The Family Stone,” Diane Keaton again takes the lead of a contrived getting-the-relatives-back-together film that eventually employs the threat of tragedy as a device for familial reconciliation. Before “Love the Coopers” ventures down that misbegotten path,

Even Turner Classic Movies can't escape Washington politics this election season

This month, Turner Classic Movies is putting a spotlight on politically themed films. A mere coincidence as the presidential election season reaches its peak? Not a chance.

In the TCM special "A Night at the Movies: Hollywood Goes to Washington," debuting Friday (Oct. 5), writer-producer-director Laurent Bouzereau -- whose documentaries about the making of films appear on the home-video releases of many classics, from "Lawrence of Arabia" to "Jaws" -- compiles scenes from numerous movies with political bents, from James Stewart in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" to Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman in "All the President's Men."

"It's not so much to make a statement, but to really tie in with the political season, absolutely," Bouzereau confirms to Zap2it of the program's timing. "Some of the people I've interviewed say, 'Everything is political.' Costa-Gavras, the great director of movies like 'Z' and 'State of Siege,'

Johnny Depp To Star In Film With His Wife!

Film history is full of real life couples starring along side each other and the scale of greatness varies from good to bloody awful. There’s the very good: Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, Bogart and Bacall and then there’s Don Johnson and Melanie Griffiths in Born Yesterday. Now Johnny Depp and his French wife, singer and occasional actress, Vanessa Paradis, are dipping their toes into such uncertain waters. Depp recently told Bang Showbiz that he’s agreed to star in My American Lover, a story based on French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir’s relationship with writer Nelson Algren.

The film is being directed by another of Depp’s long time collaborator’s, Lasse Hallestrom. The thought of Vanessa Paradis playing Simone de Beauvoir is hilarious, but there’s no confirmed news yet whether she will be.
