Oh my.. Fatso is definitely one a child of the 70s movie making heritage: Oddly paced, stuffy and uninventive. The eccentric roster of chararacters, led by Dom DeLuise is the only plus here, while everything else in the movie falls short.
Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton make for a surprisingly great duo in Night Shift, an inventive comedy that stands out from the mass thanks to its clever writing and Howard’s very apparent directorial talent.
The Purple Rose of Cairo, Woody Allen’s movie about a daydreaming housewife’s romance with a fictional movie character is a lightweight, but an enchanting and immersive fairytale.
As you can see in the poster, the text ’Ice Cream’ has been modified with a marker to say ’Nice Dreams’ instead. This is the culmination of the high brown humour you can except to find in this movie.
Seemingly made from exactly the same ingredients as its predecessor, Nice Dreams does feel a bit more forced and uninspired this time around, but still offers some good laughs nonetheless.
The sequel to the 1978 Cheech & Chong film, Next Movie is one of those movies so stupid you’ll feel ashamed to laugh, but can’t really help yourself. Cheech Marin is just sidesplittingly funny and possibly the only guy in the world who can make such a character work.
Valet Girls is an uninspired comedy of mistreated women getting even with the dirty old men of Hollywood. Watch for an occasional boob and some great songs by Meri O. Marshall.
Billy Crystal performs his numerous imitations and characters that – like most imitation acts – are tied to the era and don’t translate either not too well or not at all to the present day.
Jack Lemmon is gives a touching and unforgettable performance as a father and grandfather that has to rediscover with his family what are the most important things their lives.
Despite the ridiculous premise, Jaws The Revenge starts much stronger than its predecessor – but ultimately makes too many disappointing choices to be enjoyable.
