Morning Glory [ Hits:3773 ]
Review: (What's the Story) Morning Glory? was an Oasis album toting the smash hit, Wonderwall. Morning Glory: What's the Story? is a movie starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Lane. The "clever" reworking of the Oasis album title makes a much more interesting title than Daybreak, which is the actual name of the morning show concerned in Morning Glory. There was a morning show called Morning Glory on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom, but it only lasted 2 weeks. The term references a number of ...

Mr Bean's Holiday [ 2007 ] [ Hits:3082 ]
Review: Mr Bean’s Holiday is not what one would expect from Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean in a sequel. The trailer was funny, and many would have expected Mr Bean’s Holiday to be something on the verge of his first feature length film, Bean: The Movie. His first attempt was designed to penetrate the US market, but it just didn’t work. The story was ludicrous, and simply connected revamped Bean TV series comedy skits. This didn’t charm the audience, and simply betrayed British audiences and fans tha...

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium [ 2007 ] [ Hits:4919 ]
Review: Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is a family film that dabbles in the realm of such films as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Toy Story. Zack Helm, who wrote Stranger Than Fiction, brings this charming little fantasy story to life. Eccentric Mr. Magorium (Hoffman) has been running the Wonder Emporium for centuries, and wants to hand over the magical toy store to talented pianist and store manager, Molly Mahoney (Portman). Although no one is ready for Magorium to leave, including his Empori...

Mr. Right [ Hits:3267 ]
Review: "The perfect guy is out there waiting for me." While this dreamy sentiment tends to evaporate the closer some woman and men get to their 40s, it still seems to be one of the most popular romantic comedy building blocks in Hollywood. Wishing and waiting for that special somebody to fall into your lap or sweep you up off your feet has continued to be a great source of entertainment for the lovers and haters of this cliche-riddled notion of love. Perhaps the airy-fairy idea, which generally involve...

Mud [ Hits:2565 ]
Review: Mud is a slow-boiling mystery drama. In much the same way as Chinatown, this film slowly immerses us in a sticky, intriguing and unpredictable atmosphere. Instead of a gumshoe detective hunting down an ever-widening conspiracy, we have a young curious boy and his friend, who befriend a fugitive. The boys would have been right at home in Stand By Me, except this is really Mud's movie. Matthew McConnaughey is Mud, a charming and resourceful man, whose small town upbringing and tempestuous n...

Music and Lyrics [ 2007 ] [ Hits:3399 ]
Review: Music and Lyrics stars Hugh Grant as Alex Fletcher, and Drew Barrymore as Sophie Fisher. This funny, entertaining and romantic film is written and directed by Marc Lawrence who has plenty of romantic comedy writing experience under his belt including: The Out-of-Towners, Miss Congeniality and Two Weeks Notice. Lawrence worked with Grant in Two Weeks Notice, and has been linked to several Sandra Bullock films. It shows. Lawrence is no stranger to the genre, and neither are Grant or Barrymore.This...

My Life in Ruins [ 2009 ] [ Hits:3574 ]
Review: My Life in Ruins is a "romcom" about a tour guide operator rediscovering life and love in Athens, Greece. The premise sounds like fun with a decent cast and romantic setting, however it's star, Nia Vardalos, physically embodies the film's main flaw... it's much lighter than My Big Fat Greek Wedding. My Life in Ruins looks fantastic as a trailer, but the full version can't possibly compete with the highlights reel. So it makes a frivolous, popcorn-munching hour and a half seem worthwhile... align...
