When I saw the trailer for this film I was excited. Now, I really don't know what it's about. A couple of days after seeing the film, I have no idea. It's just that funny. And funny is what I need for a film. It was very enjoyable and I was glad that it was short. I would recommend this film to anyone.

I'm not one for all-out thrillers, but this one is a good one. It's a look into the life of a man who has all the problems of a 20-something man with the most boring job imaginable. But he has a lot of charisma, and is willing to live a life that is entirely without any problems. He doesn't really have any friends, but he has a few weirdoes. He doesn't know how to spend his life, and he doesn't have a reason to be anything. But that is a reason for him to continue living and his life is only a shadow of what it once was. The movie is a really nice piece of film-making, and while it is not a super-high-brow movie, it is really a good, well-made film.

I have watched the movie at least 10 times. I have never seen such good writing and acting in a movie. A movie with such a cast of actors. They all really perform to the movies most realistic portrayal of real life. I really hope that more people will be exposed to this movie. This movie is one of my favorites. It is a real slice of life of a person. The dialogue is so realistic and you can understand the characters actions perfectly. I also liked the music in the movie. It was so touching and sometimes I felt like I was listening to someone. It really made the movie more real. I really hope that more people will see this movie and enjoy it.

First, this is not a review of "The Informant," because that film is a joke. Second, I am not a film critic. I do review the movies I see. I am not going to go on and on about this movie. If you haven't seen it, see it. It is worth it. It is very funny, but I would also say that the parts that aren't funny are the ones that are more tragic. The characters are very flawed, and in my opinion, the things that they do are the things that I would do. So, I have no problem with these aspects of the movie. I think the director, Marc Warren, did a great job. I think the movie was very funny, very believable, very good acting. There were some really funny lines in the movie, and I really think this movie is for everyone.

This is a terrific film about an ordinary man who tries to deal with an unusual situation. Though he is young and rich, he feels a connection to his elderly and sick grandmother. What ensues is a fascinating story of his struggle to help her. I was really impressed by the actors playing the elderly grandmas and the relationship between them. The relationship between grandfather and grandmother was so touching. I loved this film!

What a great movie! Everything works perfect! The character development is great and I could sympathize with Beverly Luff Linn's motivation. It's always so frustrating when you have to know something about a character. Everyone has a good reason to talk about something important. I would suggest this movie to anyone.

The movie, based on the novel by Susan Miller, was just a little too over-the-top for my taste. This is a good movie, however. It was as hilarious as any I've seen in the past year. The actors were all great. Especially Linn. It's also worth noting that the director, Meryl Streep, is really into "too" farce and plays a central role in the film. It's also worth noting that the movie is made for and stars Streep, who is hardly ever the main character. I'd give this 9 out of 10.

Don't listen to the critics. This is a funny, entertaining, and feel-good movie that doesn't come across as "too serious". It's not too great of a departure from any of the more serious, straight-laced productions of that time, which is the best way to judge a movie. If you're expecting some kind of Siskel and Ebert, check it out. However, if you expect a movie of the caliber of R.O.T.O.R., just check it out. If you want to see what 1980's film was like, watch this movie.

We're back in movie land. This film is the epitome of what a movie should be, it's funny, it's smart, it's thought provoking. It is so well written, the characters are so well played, it makes you want to be a part of it, and makes you feel a little better about the world. The acting is excellent, and the directing is flawless. If you want to laugh, and not have your mind blown off, then this movie is for you. It is the first, and probably the last, movie I'll ever get tired of. 9/10

I found this movie to be entertaining but a little hard to get into. There are several plot twists that make the viewer wonder about what might have happened to make her throw up all over the table. The plot is kinda hard to follow and it's hard to know where the movie is going. This movie is a bit of a bore for me though. I think I'd prefer to just rent a couple of Seinfeld episodes.

This is the story of two people who meet in the beginning of the film who have just moved to different parts of the country. The first one is a waiter at a restaurant where the main character is working, and the second one is a waitress who is going to school, and both have to get used to new ways of living. The main character gets a little bit of everything, and her behavior is one of the most amazing things in this film. The waitress has a great sense of humor and when the main character is at the diner, she is always laughing at everything she sees. But the main character is not really like the waitress, she is more like a very real person, who is also very much a part of a beautiful story. I love this film because it shows what a movie should be about, instead of having the main character do some actions. All in all, it is a great film.

Tightly based on Stephen King's book, with some very clever satire and quite a bit of humour. A lot of the humour was aimed at how silly the story was, which had some great gags, but overall I didn't really laugh. It had a similar feeling to Bad Santa, except this time around it was slightly less camp. The plot was pretty simple, except for the title character, who seemed to take his role way too seriously, and this probably could have been balanced with the actors' performances. It had some very sharp, witty dialogue, but I thought it was often overused and would have benefited from a shorter running time. Overall, I found this to be a quite enjoyable film, and I thought the characters were well developed, but it was the odd part where the writers didn't quite get the joke. Overall a fair effort, 7/10.

Lethal Weapon is a gangster film, but not just any gangster, you know. There's a Racketeering conspiracy going on and a low level gangster played by John Laroquette gets the job. The idea is great and has a pretty good message. When it's released in 1982, it was a real success. However, it's a few years before Lethal Weapon 4 came out and it was put back on the shelf. So we got another two sequels, but they weren't nearly as good. A remake came out in 1994, that I haven't seen, but I heard there was a third. The producers of this film know a thing or two about making sequels. I had no idea this film was gonna be remade and I thought it was gonna be the same. It's very disappointing. The film is pretty solid, but the remake does leave something to be desired. I think Lethal Weapon 4 would be a pretty good film and make a great double bill. I'd recommend this film for fans of John Laroquette. He was the perfect choice to play the role of the evil, but likable Racketeer. It's a great film but don't expect to like it. 7.5/10

Not very often you see a movie that makes you think and that you think a lot about the actors in it, and that is the case here. The acting is very good, especially from the lead actor as well as from all the supporting actors. The movie was very funny, with a very surprising ending. I definitely recommend it.

I have always found the time to watch a comedy. It is just so relaxing to watch something funny. I am just so glad to have found this movie and this wonderful cast. I hope there will be many more films like this to come. Many of the comments I have read here make it seem like this is a "b" movie. I am not sure what these people are talking about. The acting is outstanding. I believe the whole cast was cast perfectly. There was no one character I didn't like. I could watch this movie over and over again and not have a problem with it. I just hope they continue to make these kinds of films. They are just so funny! I can't wait to see what they do next.

I saw this movie years ago and loved it then. I decided to re-watch it after reading some of the negative reviews. When I saw this movie, it was better than I remembered. The movie had the perfect cast. I think a lot of people like to bash on the movie because it's "not exactly what you think it is." Maybe that's the way it is. You can't change a movie. So don't bash on it. Just sit back and enjoy the movie and enjoy it.

There are many films that were not as good as their predecessor. Well. OK. This film is one of them. It is not as good as 'Cabaret'. The style of the film is very very different. And the direction is quite different. Some of the actors didn't seem to be the best for the part. But I believe that the movie was just so funny. And, like I said before, it's a well-made film. Definitely worth the time to watch!

Many people complain about the book. First off, they should admit that they would be better off reading the book. How can anyone say that the novel is "boring"? I myself read it in the ninth grade. I do not remember any of the details. I remember parts. I was in class and the teacher said something like "The old woman who is your mother made the mistake of telling you that you are going to grow up to be a lady." This may have been a misunderstanding but I also remember a part in the book that led to my sister reading it. I was really into it but I also remember that my sister who was a writer, had a tough time writing this book. She said it was written with no direction. I think that the plot was much better and if there was one piece that I did like in the book it was the story about Uncle Cassius. Uncle Cassius was pretty pathetic. He did not understand why he was being treated so poorly by everyone else. He was also a lousy author. The reason for this is because he made an exception to being described as a nanny. There were two reasons for his exception and one of them was that he was the only member of the family who had not committed murder. Uncle Cassius hated the rest of the family and said that the reason they hated him was because they were doing what Uncle Cassius said. I also remember that my sister complained that the uncle had put him in jail. She said it was because he was helping one of the other families in the neighborhood and he was trying to find a job. I was also pretty upset that he got murdered. When I was younger I actually thought that it was very cool that the uncle was able to save his nephew's life. This is another reason why I would recommend the book to those who have not read the book. I would also like to see the movie because I read the book and my sister read it as well. I was also on the book tour. I was really excited about this book and was so sure that the movie was going to be great. This was one of the few books that I remember thinking was well written. So many times I have read a book and was like "Oh, it was good. Now I can see the movie." This movie was not great. I have seen some of the other parts of the movie and I can not believe that this is the case. This is one of the movies that I would not put on my list. I read the book. I think that the book would have been better if they had not put the book on the movie. It was okay. I would recommend this movie to people who have not read the book.

A fun remake of the 1977 Hollywood-based western with a single cast member from the original starring in the first part. It's notable for being co-written by the original lead for the remake and two-time Academy Award winner Colin Firth. It's the story of a married couple who are struck by lightening while driving in the middle of the night. The two return home to find the house completely destroyed and one dead man. After some thinking, they realize that the man who died was their last on-screen love. His wife, Pam, is furious and vows revenge on the couple. This is a romp for the eyes and the ears. With a great cast, an infectious score, and a lot of heart, it's an entertaining romp that's guaranteed to keep you watching. You may enjoy it or you may not, but it's definitely one to keep a close eye on.

In other words, "another Lippman show". I'd rather watch a show that had a less predictable plot, a less predictable ending, and a little more comedy. Maybe it's because the movies of this director are so good, but I just felt like the characters and the plots were so predictable. And I don't even know why I watched this movie. I'm sure it will be just another boring documentary, if you have seen "The Lippman Files". Maybe I'll watch it again. Or maybe I will just skip it.

The first time I saw this movie I thought it was awful. But the second time I saw it, I loved it. The characters were so believable and the story was so much better than it seemed at the first time. My friends and I found it quite amusing and I recommend it for all those who are into a good comedy and have just got back from a holiday. This is a wonderful movie, you will be happy if you see it.

The case of the British lorry driver (Kevin Kline) who has two daughters and is divorced from the latter, goes before the court for the second time in his life. The first time he went before, he got his daughter (Penny Marshall) and the wife (Susan Sarandon) to accompany him. The second time, he was accompanied by the wife's sister (Natalie Portman). The second time, the sister was really pregnant, and the court, in an unappealable way, decided that the father should pay her a little alimony. The judge is a real racist, and when the father wants to show his appreciation of his daughter, he makes a Nazi salute. This is a funny and interesting movie, that is also highly entertaining. The plot is a bit too convoluted, but the movie is not that far from the truth. Kevin Kline is the man who can't do anything wrong. Penny Marshall is the woman who can't do anything right. She is kind, intelligent, a great cook, and very decent to people. Susan Sarandon is also good as the mother who is a mother to two children who were killed by a drunk driver. She was left with the other daughter and is seeking a divorce. The film is well worth watching. I highly recommend it.

Well, I had hoped for a great movie, because I loved movies like "A Wedding", "Evening, Evening, Evening", and "The Longest Yard", and I liked the portrayal of dummies, and I was very pleased with the way the 2 dummy girls, showed their skill and talent. But unfortunately, this movie, was not what I hoped for. The plot was slow. It kept confusing you and asking you to think and wonder about what was going on. A lot of scenes didn't go in any direction, and there were scenes that were quite amusing, but I don't think this was necessary. Some of the scenes were so predictable, that I was very disappointed in it. The characters were very thin. The motivation for them was quite weak. Even though I wanted to like this movie, I would not say it is one of the best movies I have ever seen, but it was enjoyable.
