Crop And Save
I saw this movie about six or seven years ago, so i was about 8. I saw it on video and watched it a few times. I didn't watch it for a while, and forgot about it altogether. My friend mentioned it a few weeks ago and I thought, "I need to see it again!" I forgot once again and then, over Christmas Break, I found it on DVD! I bought it and watched it once at home and fell in love with it again.
The lines are witty, the actors are great, and the storyline is practically flawless.
One of my favorite parts is the 1+2+2+1 scene (first ending), where it turns out that Miss Scarlet planned the whole thing. I also really thought the part where all the guests are making out to throw off the cop was funny.
The cast is excellent. Tim Curry, Lesley Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd, Martin Mull, and all the others are excellent.
I absolutely LOVE this movie!
This movie was amazing.
It takes 4 different stories in four different places and connects them with drugs.
Let me start with the Washington D.C./Ohio story.... Robert Wakefield (Douglas) is the president's new drug czar. While fighting against drugs, he learns that his daughter (Christensen) is a drug user. Michael Douglas portrayed Robert Wakefield wonderfully. He's a great actor. Erika Christensen played Caroline Wakefield. Erika is so talented. She played a very difficult part flawlessly.
Let's go to the DEAs' story... Ray Castro (Guzman) and Montel Gordon (Cheadle) are two cops who are in charge of making sure nothing happens to Eduardo Ruiz (Ferrer), the leading witness against Carlos Ayala (Bauer). Guzman and Cheadle are great. Their parts are very entertaining. Their characters are very serious about their work, and yet, they throw a bit of humor into the movie.
Onto San Diego... Helena (Zeta-Jones) is the classic trophy wife. Helena learns that her husband has been smuggling illegal drugs into America. Only having her husband's best friend Arnie (Quaid) to lean on, Helena takes over the drug business and also tries to keep her husband out of jail. Catherine Zeta-Jones was definitely robbed of a Golden Globe. Her portrayal of Helena Ayala was incredible. She played the part perfectly.
And finally, Mexico... Javier Rodriguez (Del Toro) is a cop who is dedicated to his work. While trying to help the people of Mexico, he learns the secrets of his boss. This story was very confusing the first time I watched it. The second time, however, I saw how amazing it was. Benicio deserved his Oscar. He played Javier with complete ease.
This movie was amazing. Every actor and actress was the perfect fit. It's a movie that should be seen by every high school student so they can see how drugs affect everyone in America.
Amazing story, amazing cast, amazing talent!
Let's begin with Renee Zellweger (Roxie Hart). Zellweger's performance is impeccable. While singing and dancing, she also is entirely believable as married chorus girl Roxie. Her ability to learn how to sing wonderfully in just a few months is incredible. She was able to convince me of her deserving the part of a wannabe vaudeville star.
Next is Catherine Zeta-Jones (Velma Kelly). Gorgeous and talented, Zeta-Jones's musical background makes her a perfect Velma Kelly. With a flawless performance, Zeta-Jones is an incredibly impressive performer. Opening the movie with the best performance of "All that Jazz" I've ever heard, she shows how perfect she is as the vaudeville headliner.
Also, Richard Gere (Billy Flynn). As the greasy lawyer, only out to make his clients and himself famous, the role of Billy seems written exactly for Gere. Showing that his talents exceed acting and piano playing (Pretty Woman), Gere also proves to us that he can sing and tap dance. His performance is marvelous.
Then we have Queen Latifah (Mama Morton). This amazing actress's portrayal of the "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" Matron is wonderful, yet lacking one thing: Singing time. With only one song, we are robbed of seeing her second performance, "Class" (With Zeta-Jones), which you can see in special features, but is not in the movie. Otherwise, she's amazing.
Finally, John C. Reilly (Amos Hart). Reilly is the oblivious, completely trusting sap, Amos. He is a great actor and his performance of Mr. "Cellophane" is PERFECT! Sadly, that is the only song written for Amos.
This is currently my favorite movie ever. The cast is amazing and there is chemistry between all of them. Sadly, Zeta-Jones and Reilly never have a scene together. It would have been fun to see them complain to each other about his wife and her competition as Legal Legend. Zellweger and Gere's chemistry throughout the whole movie is undeniable, as well as the chemistry between Zeta-Jones and Latifah and Zeta-Jones and Zellweger.
The Terminal (2004)
I was disappointed.
I think Tom Hanks is a wonderful actor. His performances have always been so convincing. This movie is no exception. Catherine Zeta-Jones is my favorite actress ever. She tops even Audrey Hepburn. She is amazing in this movie as well.
The real fault in this movie is the poor ending. First off, why would Amelia (Zeta-Jones) convince Frank (Tucci) that despite the fact that she can get any man to fall in love with her, she would pick a practically illiterate man, Viktor (Hanks) to be with, only to leave him for another guy? Secondly, how could the scriptwriters not have Viktor and Amelia end up together?! The whole story seemed to build up to their becoming a couple, only to leave you with a broken-hearted Viktor, and a seemingly happy Amelia (Although, I think she'd rather be with Viktor than her married boyfriend)as the parting.
It was a great movie up until the last few minutes. If you haven't seen it, watch it up until Viktor and Amelia kiss by the fountain and then TURN IT OFF! Otherwise, you'll be disappointed.
Intolerable Cruelty (2003)
I think this movie was wonderful. It was fun to watch what each character was going to do next.
I enjoyed finding out what Marylin's next plan was. I also enjoyed watching Miles try to make Marylin go out with him.
In my opinion, Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney have amazing chemistry. If the chemistry of the actors is good, I enjoy watching the movie so much more.
I think my favorite part of watching Intolerable Cruelty was seeing Marylin's outfits. They were all beautiful and very flattering on her. I loved the blue suit she wore when she went to Miles's office and they kissed for the first time.
I've seen this movie so many times and I enjoy it a lot.
