So I missed a week. Instead of saying something brief and cruel about Sex and the City, I was moving across town to a sweet new pad. So this week is a double.
"Hava Nagila, Baby" -Rabbi, P.I.
Last Week Wide:
Sex and the City: The Movie: Thank god they put this in theaters instead of Sex and the City: The Book. Not original
The Strangers: Supposedly inspired by true events. Not original
Last Week Limited:
The Foot Fist Way: Moustache alert! Original
Bigger, Faster, Stronger: Steroids Documentary. Original
Savage Grace: Based on a book of a true story. Not original
Stuck: Mena Suvari hits Stephen Rea with a car. Original
Last Week's Scores:
Kung Fu Panda: Finally, a movie that combines the talents of Jackie Chan, David Cross, and Wayne Knight. Original
You Don't Mess With the Zohan: If this movie didn't develop with the help of some sort of intoxicants and liberal inspiration from the Jesus character in The Big Lebowski then I am very surprised. Original
Dreams with Sharp Teeth: Harlan Ellison Documentary. Original
Go-Getter: Let the Zooey Deschanel summer assault begin! Original
The Grocer's Son: It's French, bitch. Original
Miss Conception: There are two 'o's in the title, so guess how many are turned into gender symbols to show us how light hearted this movie about infertility is. That's right, two. Original
Mother of Tears: Dario Argento movie with a reference to eyes in the title? This won't go well. Original
Operation Filmmaker: Documentary. Original
The Promotion: Sean William Scott apparently wasn't satisfied with that movie where he fought against Billy Bob Thornton, so now he gets to go after John Reilly. Original
And When did you Last See your Father?: A father's closeness to death sparks reminiscences in his son. AKA Big Fish. Also, based on a novel. Not original
Note: the odds of my having missed a few films last week are, unfortunately, high. I'll try and catch it if I can, but right now I have to unpack.
