Fantasia 2000

Comparing Fantasia 2000 to the original Fantasia is in some ways unfair, especially considering the way movie-going methods and tastes have changed over the past six decades. Yet, even though the hand-drawn animation has been helped along by the la...

First Wives' Club, The

It's something of a mystery how three accomplished comic actresses like Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Better Midler found themselves in the midst of an atrocious mess like The First Wives Club. My best guess is that the story looked better --...

Get Shorty

The better you know movies, the more appreciation you'll have for the wit and energy of Barry Sonnenfeld's Get Shorty. While it's quite possible for the cinematically unaware to enjoy this film -- it's got a fair amount of readily-accessible comed...

Then She Found Me

This is the sort of movie that gives “chick flicks” a bad name. It’s a cross between inept melodrama and a bad sit-com. The “comedy” (for lack of a better word) is obvious, poorly timed, and not especially funny. The “drama” (again, f...

What Women Want

The key to enjoying What Women Want - a feather-light trifle that will probably find favor at the box office - is not considering the age-old question of what might have been. The underlying premise - a male chauvinist suddenly gaining access to w...

Women, The

The Women is appropriately named. For its nearly 110 minute running time, there's nary a man to be found, not even in the background of crowd scenes. This movie takes place in the same world as Sex and the City, where there are only three things ...
