The Girl Next Door (2004)
Misleading promotional campaign, but it serves it entertains *Spoilers*
I had to watch 'The Girl Next Door' twice. The main reason was that I was not expecting it to be what it is. I was expecting 'Road Trip' or 'American Pie', and I had a right to. From the first time I saw the commercial, about 7 months ago, I had "I'm all wet, can I come in?" stuck in my brain. The ads promised me a teen sex comedy. That is not what I got. What I got was a nice teenage romantic comedy, more like a Freddy Prinze Jr. movie then 'Porkys', that looked more and more like 'Risky Business' every time I remembered that Danielle (Cuthbert) was a porn star (Which is a somewhat similar to Rebecca De Morney's hooker in 'Buisness'). Then the movie begins to change. Upon the revelation of her former career the film begins a decent into stupidity. Yet the writers managed one more scene of substance before hell breaks loose. After Matt (Hirsch) trys to have sex with her in a motel, Danielle reveals how hurt she was by this. Elisha Cuthbert is on her way to being a huge star and it is a shame she is wasted in this. For the rest of the movie she is downgraded to an afterthought. Now from out of nowhere we meet Kelly (Olyphant) Danielle's ex who is a porn producer. Now the writers have decided to make a teen sex comedy. We see a scene at a strip club which is not only unnecessary but doesn't provide much in the way of nudity, either. Now Kelly takes Danielle to Las Vegas for a porn convention and Matt has to save her from this and let her be who she wants. After they leave Sin City the romance ends. They are together and nothing is gonna change that. Instead the story drifts into a string of situations in which Kelly screws over Matt for stealing Danielle away from porn. At this point Matt's friend Eli(Marquette) takes over as a lead briefly. In order to earn back $25,000 which Kelly stole due to Matt lying about who he was when the two went the bank earlier. So they steal Kelly's idea about filming a porn inside of a real high school, or so we think. When Kelly tries to blackmail Matt with the tape, we learn it is a sex-ed tape, a follow up to a line that you will probably forget. Long story short IL' Matt's a millionaire attending Georgetown and with the girl he loves. Really it is movie with awesome potential that goes terribly wrong. I'm just glad I wasn't dumb enough to have thought Elisha Cuthbert would go topless so I would be even more disappointed. The cast is okay. Hircsh was a good lead, but he was hardly anything special. Olyphant is good in his role, but I can think of a few people more suited to the part then him (Seann William Scott for example). Marquette was funny. As for the rest of the cast, I couldn't see Timothy Bottoms without hearing "One of these days Laura, I'm gonna punch you in the face!" in my head. The direction was mediocre at best, but coming from Luke Greenfield ('The Animal') I'm not shocked. The writing is okay despite the bad second half. Anyways,
Alone- 6/10 As an entry in to the teen sex comedy genera - 2/6
Love Actually (2003)
Loved it, actually
Look at my user name. That should tell you the reason I watched Love Actually. I just wanted to see my beloved Keira Knightley, and I had a the chance to watch this. I didn't expect much, I normally don't enjoy Hugh Grant playing the same character in every film. But Keira's name drew me to watch this. I am shocked to say I loved it. Grant does a great job as the Prime Minister of Great Britain dealing with an infatuation with an employee of his. Knightley turns out a fine performance in a small role as Juliet, a recently married woman trying to make friends withe her husbands best friend. Andrew Lincoln turns in a great job as the best friend who is secretly in love with Juliet. There are two scenes in the movie, one in Mark's (the best friends) house where Juliet sees that Mark's footage of her wedding is only a tape of her, and a scene directly following in which Mark runs out of his house, that are very realistic. Bill Nighy is visibly having fun in his role as an over the hill rockstar trying to find success one last time with a Christmas-cover of 'Love Is All Aurond'. Laura Linney does a good job in her role as Sarah, a girl caring for her mentally-ill brother while harboring a crush on a man at work. The most powerful storyline is that of Allen Rickman's Harry and his wife Emma Thompson's Karen. Harry is having an affair with a woman at work and Karen is dealing with it. The plot lines with Liam Nesson and Colin Firth struck me as unfunny and useless. Then we come to the last two plot lines, inserted only for laughs. One is of young British man who cant get women and goes to Millwaukee, Wisconsin expecting his accent to get him sex. That story provides plenty of sex jokes and good cameos by Elisha Cuthbert, Shannon Elizabeth and Denise Richards. The last plot involves two actors doing a variety of sex scenes for a movie. This is funny because they are naked through almost the entire movie and hook up at the end. The backdrop of London at Christmas time is beautiful. And if you want to know how I feel about Keira Knightley, read Mark's cards. Billy Bob Thorten makes a memorable cameo as the President of The USA.
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
In the begining we see 2 criminal brothers, one freshly broken out of jail, the other a sexual preadator, rob and burn down a gas station. This leads to them taking a hostage whom the predator rapes and murders. They then decide to leave the country and head to Mexico. They get a preacher who has lost his faith and his family to take them to a bar where they will make there contact. All the way they tease you with the sexual predators infatuation with the preachers daughter. They arive at the bar (A strip clup open 'From Dusk Till Dawn') they go through a serious of events leading up to lap dance from Selma Hayack's stripper charecter. The bars supposed owner or manager comes in and stabs one of the brothers in the hand. The sight of blood transforms Selma into a vampire. Soon it is obvious that everyone working in the bar are vampires. Hijinx insue. This movie is scary and funny at the same time. 8 out of 10
Matchstick Men (2003)
Probably the best film with Nicholas Cage (Not Saying Much)
In "Matchstick Men" Nicholas Cage plays a con man who, as if you didn't see this coming, gets conned. He suffers from OCD, to which his partner recommends a psychiatrist. Cage, through the psychiatrist, meets the child his ex-wife was pregnant with 15 years ago when he last saw her. His daughter helps him cure his OCD and lighten up. She also learns all of secrets. Long story short, she helps him in a con. Cage winds up in a hospital. Turns out the doctors, physhciatyrst, partner, and girl are all conning Cage. They steal all of the money he saved. Plus, the girl isn't his kid!!! He doesn't have a kid!! If you (like me) get taken in by this film and forget to realize that there has to be some twist, you may not be able to get over the stupidity of the whole idea. However, coming off "Adaptation", I never thought I would compliment Cage's acting. This movie changed my mind He was great in it.
Everybody Loves Raymond (1996)
The most overrated piece of junk ever.
People say 'Friends' is overrated. People say 'Frasier' is overrated. People say 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' is overrated. Those same people continue to drool over this retarded sitcom which attempts to, and fails at miserably, be the next 'Home Improvement'.
Ray Ramono, possibly the most unfunny comedian of all time, joined the endless ranks of stand-up comedians who received sitcoms in the earl-mid 1990's. While Jerry Seinfeld and Drew Carrey's shows focused on single people, Ramono's was about family. Ramono plays a Long Island, NY sports writer who lives by his overly annoying parents with his unrealistic family.
Ramono comes off as stupid as to how to be an adult and the people around do not seem to care. This show's only saving grace is the occasional funny line delivered by Brad Garret, but that is the only piece of remotely funny material on this whole show.
Laurel Canyon (2002)
Stupid, but for reasons beyond the mom and girlfriend.
This film is just retarted. It is this guy who feels much better than his mom because of his straight-laced, Harvard lifestyle, which he was only able to atain thanks to her money. His girlfriend, who obviously was bored of her East Coast Harvard ways, falls in love with his mom and her boyfriend. The mom, a hipee rock producer who appearently can afford to give away a Malibu beach House and who lives in the Hollywood Hills, encourages this mangatae until right before the three consumate the relationship when suddenly cares about her son's feelings. That was very poor script writing.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2003)
This show got off to a bad start. As a fan of 'The Man Show' and Adam Carolla on the radio show 'Loveline', I felt obligated to watch this show. I watched from it's debut after the Super Bowl untill about July of it's first season, and then I stoped. ABC had watered down Kimmel's best comedic qualities and the show struggled to get celebrities that mattered. To often did Carolla have to be a guest on the show, only proving that Jimmy is only funny when he and Adam play off each others jokes. But, in order to not turn off women offended by 'The Man Show', Adam could not become Jimmy's Co-host on a permenante basis. So Jimmy relied on weekly doeses of members of the Kimmel-Carolla comedy family (Kathy Griffen, David Allan Grier, Snoop Dogg,etc.) as guest hosts and stumbled through live broadcasts. In October, things began to change. With the probability that Jimmy would be cancelled high, he began to try to be himself instead of Letterman or Leno. Ratings began to improve slightly. I returned to the show on Halloween, and by Thanksgiving began to like the show alot more. In like Januarey ABC began bringing in guests from one movie for one week. This way bigger celebrities came on to promote films and shows. In February the show gave into ABC's request to try the show without co-hosts and tape some episodes. By mid-April co-hosts were gone and within the last 3 weeks of this post, all episodes were being taped. Now you see people promoting big movies on Kimmel aswell as Leno and Letterman and Jimmy has begun to emerge as a possible third big late night show.
Best Radio Show Ever!!!!!
While I never saw the TV show, I have been listening to the radio show for 5 years. Sunday-Thursday every week I listen from 1am to 3am east coast time to Dr. Drew, Adam and whichever celebrity guest who is in the studio that night!!!Adam is great with the realistic humor and Dr. Drew is not only informatie but great as Adam's straight man. Some of Adam's comments about life are funny weather you have expirenced them or not and his Ace Rockolla spoof of DJ's is fabolus and Dr. Drew is very informative with his insightfull comments. The listening is inhanced when you can relate, when Adam tells jokes about driving in L.A. I laugh harder then normal because I have had similar expirences. When someone calls in and talks about being pot addicts, I can relate because I had a friend who had a serious problem. It's just great!!!

The O.C. (2003)
Great Show with some short-cummings
The O.C. is a very good show being groomed to be FOX's next big teen drama. After the untimely (and not shocking) death of 'Skin' FOX's other rich kids with problems teen drarma, The O.C. was left to carry on without another show to bill it with untill the start of American Idol. And to my shock, it's held it's own. With an atractive cast mixed with realative unknowns like Ben McKenzie and Rachel Bilson and vetrens like Peter Galagher and Tate Donovan, and a backdrop of an affluent community on the SoCal coast, this show is sure to a FOX hit for years to come. But, it does have some flaws. Why call this show The O.C. when it only deals with Newport Beach???? I have not heard a reference to Anaheim, Irvine, Santa Anna, Orange or any other city in Orange County. And while people say there are no rich people in Orange County, I distinctly remember the Eagle County, Colorado DA pressing charges against "Kobe Bryant of Newport Beach, CA". I also wonder why the charecters have never gone into the much larger and close by Los Angeles County where they could do alot more things, and get into alot more trouble???
Overall: 9 out of 10
Too Predictable, But True to Life
When this show started, you got a glimpse of what was to come in Episode 1. Fighting, drugs, depression, and domestic problems. After you watched that first one you knew that a murder was probable and that a gay player was eminent. Relationships with woman was a no brainer. While the show is sadly predictable and badly copying other storylines, including the real life story of Ray Lewis, it does have some truth to it. Here in Detroit former Purdue, Detroit Lions, and Cleveland Browns QB Gary Dainelson has a radio show on wich he stated that everything on this show to date happened to him in his pro career. I give Playmakers a 3 out of 5.
