You better watch out You better not cry You better have clout I'm telling you why Two Thumbs Down are comin' to town He's making a list,
Checking it twice;
Gonna find out whose
movie was scheiss.
Sandy Claws is comin' to town.
He sees you when you're (bleeping),
He knows when you're a fake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for cinema's sake!
With little but scorn
and pounding of drums,
Rooty toot hoots
and rummy tum thumbs
Sandy Jaws is comin' to town
As I dream back over many happy years of movie going, some of my favorite lines from old reviews dance in my head like visions of sugarplums. Good movies, bad movies, doesn't matter, just so the line dances. I thought I'd share them in the holiday spirit. Curiously, most of the lines come from movies so bad I didn't want a refund, »

Barry Sonnenfeld hasn't directed much in the last few years. He started out in 1991 with The Addams Family and went on to make Men in Black, Wild Wild West, Men in Black II, and Rv most recently.

Barry Sonnenfeld is no stranger to saving the world, after two Men in Black films and, er, Wild Wild West. But now he's being called upon to save us all again, with the news that he's set to return to the big screen with The How-To Guide For Saving The World.The story centres on - as you'd expect from the title - an instruction manual for protecting the world from alien invasion left behind by a now-defunct secret group. It is discovered by what Sonnenfeld describes as "a non-action-hero guy, not unlike me in terms of manliness" and a woman who hates him, who have to work together to save the planet.The script's by newcomer BenDavid Grabinski, and it'll be Sonnenfeld's first feature directing gig since 2006's Rv, but let's draw a veil over that and focus on the fact that he used to make films like The Addams Family and Get Shorty, »
She may play the ever-dutiful wife of to the most socially inept human being on HBO, but Cheryl Hines' enthusiasm these days is anything but curbed. Perhaps that's because in recent years the actress has broken out as one of Hollywood's newest leading ladies. Aside from her work with Seinfeld genius Larry David, Hines has paired with Robin Williams in Rv and Keri Russell in the wonderfully sassy Waitress. From »
