Crop And Save
Godawful 'comedy' starring Chevy Chase. This movie may be fun for people with half a brain cell, but for the bulk majority, people will agree that this is an awful attempt at yuletide satire. The gags are groan-worthy and I've seen better acting from Jasper Carrott! PLEASE DO NOT WASTE 1 1/2 OR SO HOURS OF YOUR LIFE ON THIS RUBBISH. Try 1983's VACATION or the more silly but actually quite fun VEGAS VACATION (1997). MJG
Rat Race (2001)
Great Actors, Great Locations, Great Storyline...BRILLIANT
GREAT funny film. Such a treat to see actors/comedians as famous as these working together. This movie does have such a simple plot (there's not that much to follow, they're all on a race to get to Mexico anyway that they can to pick up $2 MILLION) We follow each character's story as they basically go NUTS trying to get to it anyway they can! There's Some fantastic stunts in this movie and some classic moments which all of the family can enjoy. 9/10
Driving School (1997)
Look out Britain, Maureen is out on our roads!
Doesn't anybody remember this documentary? It was hilarious! In fact, most of it doesn't even stick in my mind but I remember Maureen Rees as the mad welsh woman always arguing with her husband and nearly decapitating everyone else on the road. Plus, she failed her driving test about 8 times! It really was a good watch. Watch out for a repeat on TV.
Fathers' Day (1997)
I Actually enjoyed it...
Great cast, great laughs. A genuinely daft movie but with loads of fun too. I thought that Robin Williams played a very good part and was particularly funny, and Crystal too. Some parts of the film do tend to be slightly iffy such as the storyline (you can't help but thinking "I have seen all this done before somewhere.") However, if you don't want to be shocked at something new and original in a movie, watch this and simply laugh. Great fun all round. 7/10
The Woman in Red (1984)
One Of The Best Comedies I have EVER Seen
Gene Wilder is hilirious. He has one of those faces that all comedic stars want - a face that you cannot even look at with a straight face. He's a genuis. Enough said. This film has to rate among his works as it is PERFECT. I won't bore people with the plot, I'll just say that this film has a touch of everything in it;Romance...Anger...Love...Hate...Confusion...and, of course, some of the best ever comedic moments. I do not believe that anybody wouldn't laugh at or enjoy this movie. The supporting cast to Wilder are fantastic with a great performance by the late Gilda Radner which is hysterical. Not to mention Charles Grodin who plays a good part in this too. 10/10 NO QUESTION
All About Me (2002)
Jasper...Just what were you thinking of!!
BIG Jasper Carrott fan. I loved The Detectives (BIG FAN) and have most episodes on tape. BRILLIANT stand-up comic, but sadly only a so/so actor. THE DETECTIVES simply worked because of Jasper's comic timing, the storylines, the guest stars...and of course not forgetting Mr. Robert Powell(!) ALL ABOUT ME...decidedly dodgy. Not very funny at all. I do remember watching just a couple of episodes when it first was broadcast over a year ago. I found it extremely tacky looking. Why was Jasper involved in this. He is the best comedian ever by far, and yet even he cannot save this drivvel. The first series, I'm sorry to say, definately does deserve to be panned good and proper. I suppose the real reason why I am writing this review is because there is a new series of ALL ABOUT ME starting this Friday which doesn't look too bad on the reviews so I'll give it another chance. It'll have to be greatly improved though! MJG
Jurassic Park (1993)
AMAZING MOVIE FOR IT'S TIME
Great cast and absolutely breath-taking special FX make this BOX OFFICE SMASH a true winner. Wont go on about the plot too much as when you are watching the movie you simply don't care. All this movie is about is the FX which, on it's own is supreme. ****1/2
Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
Robin Williams Dressed Up As A 60 Year Old Women? HILARIOUS!
I saw this movie at the cinema in 1993 and thought it was fantastic! It has everything you could ever really want in a comedy. Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) will do ANYTHING to see his children! This movie has plenty of gags, but it all comes together in a nice, friendly framework that centres around one man's family and that man's love for his children that'll make him dress up as a 60 year old granny to get back into their lives! Plenty of laughs throughout and all-round great performances. 9/10
OVERBLOWN, OVER-VIOLENT AND DUMB!
This movie just exploits violence and turns serious personal issue into military gore! There are plenty of action scenes (most of which is overblown) and the scripts are rubbish throughout. Arnie doesn't really suit this role (well, maybe for the action scenes), but for the personal and emotional scenes he is just a big cliche. Put simply, IF YOU LOVE GOREY ACTION BUT DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE MAIN THEME AND STORYLINE OF A MOVIE, YOU'LL LIKE THIS. I hated it...2/10
ENJOYABLE, HECTIC COMEDY!
I've never really been a big fan of John Cleese as I haven't seen much of the stuff he's done in the past, but I liked him in this movie. Basically, headmaster Brian Stimpson (Cleese) has to get to Norwich for a very important and historical teachers' conference and, because of one silly mistake of getting on the wrong train because he misheared an instruction, he's left up the creek without a paddle! Throughout the movie we see John Cleese hurling from one disaster to another and taking drastic measures to not be late for this important event. The film is very 'slapsticky' in places and also damn funny in places too. As for the storyline (it's not so good), but the scripts work well with plenty of gags and funny, lighthearted moments. 8/10
