Ghost World

Ghost World could easily be considered an "anti-Hollywood coming of age story". Although it follows the contours of the genre, the path is different enough to make the movie seem fresh, non-formulaic, and occasionally surprising. Of course, for s...

Because I Said So

Because I Said So is a made-to-order romantic comedy of the type "B" variety (that's the one where the heroine is torn between the socially and financially "ideal" guy and the one who really makes her happy). As I have previously written, a formul...

Loser

Calling a motion picture Loser is a brave move because it places the film in a precarious position if the critical reaction is less enthusiastic than the producers expect. In this case, however, that's not an issue; this movie succeeds in a modest...

Art School Confidential

For Art School Confidential, director Terry Zwigoff has re-teamed with Daniel Clowes for an offbeat and bitingly satirical look at the college era coming of age story. Considering Zwigoff's resume, which includes Bad Santa and Ghost World (based o...

Clueless

As appealing as Alicia Silverstone is (and she possesses that ethereal "star quality" which is sadly lacking in many of today's up-and-coming performers), her presence can't quite elevate this breezy comedy to the level of a modern classic. A cont...

Ice Harvest, The

There are those, including the distributor, who would like audiences to believe that The Ice Harvest is a comedy. At first glance, that's not so hard to accept. After all, director Harold Ramis was one of the Ghostbusters co-writers and scored a ...

Over Her Dead Body

To fashion an endearing romantic comedy, there are only a few simple rules to be followed: find two likeable leads whose chemistry sizzles, provide them with a simple framework that allows them to gradually fall for each other in such a way that th...

Can't Hardly Wait

With Can't Hardly Wait, I suppose first time directors Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (whose previous credits include writing the script for A Very Brady Sequel) were trying to recapture the mood of a John Hughes '80s teen comedy. Unfortunately, ...
