I went to see this film with a friend, he didn't like it at all. My comment was that it was funny, and I thought this was going to be the same old story, you know the one, but this film was not a parody, it was real, you felt like you were there and it was very authentic. It had the feel of an indie film, it was very different, but it was really good. Not the kind of film that you would go see with friends, but it would be good to see it with friends, it is worth seeing, you don't have to be a fan of the series, but the storyline was great, the characters were great, I was very surprised by the acting, it was really good, it really feels like you are there, you can feel the tension, you really feel that you are there. The best part of the film was the ending, it was really good, and I am not going to give any spoilers, I can't believe that there was not a sequel, it would have been so cool, the ending was good, it is one of the best endings I have seen in a while. The acting was good, but the best part of the film was the ending, and I am not going to tell you what it was, I will just say that it was very good, it was perfect, I really thought it was perfect, and it is worth seeing, I am going to watch it again, because it was really good, and it is really funny. 8/10

I am always fascinated with a film that is not supposed to be a masterpiece. It is supposed to be a film you either like or hate. I am actually at a complete loss in finding films that have always been such a disappointment for me. I am a sucker for movies with a mix of comedy and action. My favorite genre is drama, and this film was a mixed bag. The story was about how a man is kidnapped and is taken to another town. When he comes home he meets the townspeople who have formed a band and now wants to start a new life. But the band is going to be led by a woman who is full of cocaine and alcohol. One by one the townsfolk fall to the side of this woman. Then all hell breaks loose. This is my first Michael York film and I can honestly say it was great. I have never laughed harder at a film in a long time. You have to admit, it was one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. I would not recommend this film for younger children but for the adults that like to laugh and make fun of themselves I recommend this film. 8/10

What happens when you decide that you are not a journalist.or a lawyer, or a criminal defense lawyer, or any other professional? You decide you want to be a gossip. This movie is a very clever movie. It is funny. I can't remember the last time I saw a movie in which the comedy aspect was so good. It made me laugh and it made me laugh more. It made me think. It made me think about things I didn't want to think about. It was a very clever movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn about the world of gossip and how you can make a living from it.

First and foremost, I'd like to say that I love the New Jersey way of life. But I must say, I also have never seen a movie about this part of the world before. The movie deals with the frustrations of working in a sweatshop, living with a wife that is a prostitute, and struggling to keep her family together. It is not an easy movie to watch and I had trouble staying awake. But it is an interesting look at life in the land of Madea and her family. I recommend this movie to everyone who loves to see something different.

Pete Townshend is one of the most interesting, eccentric, and clever people alive today. His music is outstanding, and his involvement in creating the soundtrack to this film is also fascinating. The amount of detail he puts into each piece is remarkable. And when you add the performance of Pete's wife and the late, great Allen Ginsberg, you have a recipe for a brilliant comedy. The question is, did Townshend make his wife mad at him, because he is a fabulous composer? Was he the one who took away his wife's talent, while also taking away her husband's talent? Or was Townshend the one who took away his wife's talent? The actor playing Townshend is excellent, as is the person playing the late, great Ginsberg. They both do a great job of playing the goofy side of the man. And, as a major star in the late 50's, Townshend has to do some acting, too, for his part. The supporting cast is also great. Best of all, the film is very funny. The end is one of the best I have seen in recent years. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes any type of comedy, regardless of what type of comedy you are looking for. This film will be enjoyed by anyone who is into a film that is a little different. "Get This," "Get This Brown," and "Gummo" are all great films, but you must see this film, and you must see this film!

By the late 80's, a big comic-book movie was a movie that would require many different creative abilities, and some of those creative talents turned out to be Andrew Dice Clay and Mark Hamill. An ambitious plan to do a sequel to the hit movie "Romeo + Juliet" in 1992, Marvel Studios decided to continue with the idea of making a comic book movie. After 20 years, the outcome was not exactly the best thing Marvel Studios could have done. The problem with "New Jersey" is the continuity problems, which are many, and the reasons for the problems are many. One can't say the movie is not entertaining, because you can't stop watching. A lot of interesting things happen in the movie. The main plot is about a street gang that's trying to prove themselves. They go to San Francisco to join the noble protectors of the city. A lot of characters are introduced and some are interesting. The movie is worth watching, but it is not recommended for everybody, because it is a comic-book movie with many details, and a lot of things are still confusing. This is probably a movie for die-hard comic-book fans. If you are an occasional moviegoer, this movie is not for you. One thing is for sure: if you enjoy comic books, you will enjoy this movie.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to view this film, but it's because of the noise and angst I get from watching it. I remember loving this film in the late eighties when it first came out. I've seen it a couple of times since and now find it to be very much in my "older" films list. It's certainly a film that, after a couple of viewings, never gets old and I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of it. The story line is good and the acting and chemistry between the three main characters is fantastic. It's just a shame that in today's age of so many other low budget films, this film is such a favorite. It's also the only one of these films I have a copy of, because I have a copy of the worst of them all: "The Departed". If you have a copy of this one, do yourself a favor and grab a copy of "The Departed" or you will regret it. Those are the two of the most terrible films ever made and "The Departed" is one of the most atrocious. Anyone who has seen "The Departed" will know what I mean. I'm not sure how it has been around for so long, but I've been a fan of the New Jersey films for about thirty years. I was one of the ones who reviewed "The Departed" and I gave it a thumbs down and even wrote a long review for that film. I actually thought it was awful. But then I found a copy of this film and finally, it changed my opinion. I was very surprised to see the score for this film have never been mentioned. It's actually quite low, but it's worth mentioning, but only if you like the New Jersey films. This film has the potential to go into my top 5 favorite New Jersey films, and I can honestly say it would be the one I always watch when I come across it. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest New Jersey films ever made.

Just what the hell happened with Eddie Izzard? I was hoping that the movie would be better than the play, and it wasn't. Izzard was the funniest person on the show. Then he came back on the show and was just awful. He was the worst, the worst. I would have done anything to get him off the show. It was kind of disappointing when he did the best work on the show. To me, he was the worst. Not only did he write the script, but he was in it. Izzard is a good comic actor, but he is not a good enough comic actor to work on the show, and I am glad he didn't make it to the show because it would have been much better. I mean, he could have been the worst. He just doesn't fit the role. If he was not in it, the show would have been better. I hope he makes it back on the show one day, but I am sure he will not. It is a pity that Izzard was not able to pull out the best work from his performance. I would have liked to have seen him work on the show as it would have been nice to see him work with the other actors. If he can pull out some better work, then I will give him the respect that he deserves. Also, I was really disappointed with the show's reaction to the death of Eddie Izzard. They kept cutting the show and the other shows. It was getting really painful. They did not show the reactions of the other actors to Eddie Izzard's death. Maybe that was part of the problem. The show would have been better if they had kept the show and the other shows. That would have made it better. In conclusion, I would not recommend this show to anyone. It is not worth your time. It is very difficult to find a show that is very good and worth your time, and this is not one of them. I would recommend you to watch the movies instead of watching this show.

We watched this film in our kids' English class. It was so educational. This film gave us a little "wow" moment. If you like movies like "Little Miss Sunshine", "The Help", or "Forrest Gump", you'll love this. We were laughing so hard and having so much fun. We got into it and really wanted to see it again. The movie makes us think about what makes us happy. It really makes you think. I highly recommend it. My kids thought it was great.

I have recently re-watched this film for the first time and I feel the old review I wrote (dated 12/12/06) was deserved. First of all, I must say that this is not a groundbreaking film, nor was it one of the most memorable movies I've ever seen. However, it does manage to stay pretty original in a genre where such a feat is already much harder than many of us would expect. This movie was a very interesting approach to a movie that most would consider a type of "chick-flick" or "butt-kicking" film, and I enjoyed it a lot. While I don't feel the movie is perfect, I do feel that the film made the idea of "moving to New Jersey" (to the fictional town of "Jersey City") to the point of a unique individual story and the characters were very likable. All in all, it's definitely worth watching.

I've been a fan of "Good Luck Chuck" since it was on the air and that was 15 years ago. It's funny, a good character study of two men in a town that's slowly on its way to destruction. I'm a pretty good judge of actors and seeing a lot of their work. It's a very funny movie and the actors do a wonderful job, even though the script is pretty weak. I don't think that any of the characters are terribly developed, except maybe Jim with the annoying father. He's the only one that I can see that was ever meant to have depth, even if it's a bit extreme. I love the old bar scene and really dig the looks of "Mike McGo" (Liam Neeson) and "Matt Mills" (Jack Black). These two characters are so likable, they give me chills and they seem so comfortable in their roles. "I still wish I was drunk" is my favorite line from the movie. I can't think of many movies that I've seen that are funny. I love it when they play a game, or the way the men interact in a bar. I love when one guy starts talking about how his best friend died. It's just an incredibly good movie. It's funny, it's sad, and it has some really good laughs. It's the type of movie you'll want to watch over and over again. So, I can't wait to see "Chuck." I hope they make a sequel!

Watching this movie I saw the reaction of the audience and I really didn't expect this movie to be this funny. I mean the reviews I read before seeing this movie were very negative, but I think they were expecting a romantic comedy and this movie is not a romantic comedy, but it was really funny. If you want to laugh you should see this movie. The only thing I regret about this movie is that I didn't watch it in the theater but I can guarantee you, you will love it.

I have seen this movie more times than I can count. I never had a problem with it before. The plot, although simple, is a bit too good to pass up. At least half the time you are chuckling to yourself. That's what I did for the first time when I saw it. I thought it was very funny. Not only is it original, but it's also a very well written script. It's not perfect, but it's good. The characters are interesting. The plot is simple, but there is a twist that makes it all worthwhile. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves slapstick comedy. 8/10

How could I go wrong? I'm serious. I couldn't possibly go wrong. It's a movie you watch one evening and never forget. I just finished it on the Lazy Sunday and I'm not disappointed. It's a great movie, I thought, when I was young. I mean, really. It's like "Forrest Gump" meets "Dumb and Dumber". That's what it's like. It's really, really funny. But you don't need to be a movie buff to get it. It's a great little movie. I really liked the characters. I like the music. I like the actors. I even like the very idea of the whole movie. It's a great movie. It's funny. It's fun. It's original. I would recommend it to anyone, because if you're like me, you really can't go wrong. I'm glad I had the opportunity to see it. Thank you, Matt

Wandering the endless streets of Brooklyn, Christine can't decide where she belongs. Her husband leaves her and her son is too young to have sex. So she rents a beautiful apartment, but as soon as she moves in the tenants start acting bizarre. A strange man living in a huge swimming pool named Ryan, his name is Ben, has a weird obsession with her. He wears a red shirt with a frog head on it and a cartoon face on it. He owns a huge, stuffed animal with an obscene note attached to it. He's obsessed with Christine's secret crush, a woman named Tina. Then he sends her threatening letters with the frog heads. He meets up with her roommate, the sexy Rachel, and they begin to date. He likes her, she likes him. Ryan wants to start a revolution in the movie. What happens to Ryan is the biggest joke of all. I love this movie. I loved it when I was 12, when it first came out. I still love it today, but I'm going to have to take some time off. My mom tells me it's okay for her to watch it with me when I'm really sick and she still likes it. I like to watch it alone. But I've seen it again recently and I really miss it. I feel like the love I had for it was the only love I could feel. I don't feel the same way about this movie. I don't feel like I could do anything for it. I don't think that it's possible for me to love this movie and understand it. But the fact that I love it, I think, is because it is the love I feel for a movie that I watched with my mom. The love she had for it and the love I have for it is something I don't feel like I could do anything for. So maybe I just have to have a big heart and try to be kind. Maybe I just have to be patient and wait for it to go away. And I love it for that reason. It's a very romantic movie, the kind of movie you want to watch alone. If I could, I would be watching it with my mom. And that's all I can say.

Mike and Teddy are two average teenagers who are growing up with a normal family life. They are not the kind of people who have to be ashamed of themselves. So they pretend to be normal. Unfortunately, their parents are not kind to them, and they are picked on by the local kids. The problem with their parents is that they don't have a proper attitude towards their children. When a dark cloud threatens the family's good reputation, Mike and Teddy will have to grow up and fight back. In the end, they do get help from a kid named Sam, who they had been trying to befriend. Not only does Sam teach them the importance of sticking together, he also gives them hope. Mike and Teddy will have to work hard to get back at their parents for everything that happened. This is an excellent film, which shows you that you don't need a huge budget to produce a good film. I think everyone will enjoy this film.

This is a unique movie. It's a good time for those of us who are in our mid-30's. It's a fun movie to watch. It's not preachy. It's fun. The story line is engaging. The acting is very good. The camera work is good. I think the performances were quite good. It's well shot. I was impressed by the musical score. It fits the movie well. The only problem with the movie is that there are a couple of points where it drags a little. It's not an Oscar winner but it's worth a watch.

I have to admit that I was disappointed in this movie. First of all, I expected more from the actors. I was very impressed with the performances of Jim Carrey, Ed Begley Jr., and Melissa McCarthy. I was expecting a lot more from the acting of Christopher Meloni. I was also expecting a lot more from the plot. In short, I was very disappointed with this movie. I do not recommend this movie to anyone, but I do recommend it to those who are looking for a bit of something different. I recommend this movie to everyone. I think that everyone should see this movie. I think that there are some flaws, but that is not a major flaw. There is also a big flaw in the movie. I would have to say that this movie was made in the late 70's. I also think that the musical score was not as good as the music in the other movies of the same genre. The music was pretty good. In my opinion, this movie was better than Bridesmaids and Zoolander. I give this movie a 8 out of 10 stars. This movie is one of my favorites. I give this movie an 8 out of 10 stars.

this movie has a much better story and a more fun, family-oriented film. the show that gives the best impression of this movie is definitely "immanuel" (pronounced like immanuel, a spelling that you will also see in this movie, but immanuel would be a more respectful spelling). this movie is a romance/comedy/drama/fantasy. i liked this movie a lot because it is a family-oriented movie. the ending is quite sad, but you really have to be rooting for the characters to overcome their hardships. also, i really liked the style of the movie. it's fun to see the different places the characters live in (i.e. i was very surprised at the cool sort of tree that they got to ride in on the roof, but this is a minor detail, and really, just see the movie to find out what i mean). it's also a fun movie to see in the theaters because the action is great and there are so many cool things that you can do with the cars, the buildings, the characters, etc. it's a movie that is easy to make fun of, but it's also a great movie to watch when you just want to have a good time. this movie is also quite funny, and it is even better when you get to see the cast of this movie. you can easily tell that the actors in this movie are pretty good at acting, and that's another thing that you should see the movie to find out. another thing that you should notice is that the actors in this movie have really great chemistry with each other, and they really do work well together. so, if you're looking for a great movie, this is the one for you. you can also enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. you can also just rent the movie and get a lot of entertainment out of it, like you see it in the movie theatres, but also it's quite easy to watch on your home computer.

One of the best films I have seen in a long time. This movie was a true wonder. I can't believe it's a made for television movie. I went in expecting it to be a black comedy but instead I saw a serious drama about a young guy who is brought up in a very strict religious family who is the "good one". He finds himself getting all caught up in the things he's supposed to be doing which eventually lead him to the dark side. This film is about a lot more than just religion. It is about a young man who is being a bad person and the things that led him to that point in his life. I highly recommend this film to everyone who loves movies and they will find much to enjoy.

I love that stupid DIC cars. They always look like a joke and the dudes always look like they want to hang themselves. Also I love the way they say those stupid catchphrases, that I love. Anyway the plot isn't that bad. It's about a dysfunctional family and how they have to deal with the fact that their mother is coming home. So they run a new place for that and put a bunch of people in a house. There's also an old lady who loves a guy that she thinks is gay. So they just keep sending her things to try and break up the family. What I really liked about the movie is how funny it was. I love a few of the characters and all the stuff they said. Also it was really funny to see how they played dumb with everyone and then played it up when they needed to. Also you see that there are people out there that like this stuff and I think it's a great movie for those of you that are into that kind of stuff.

A fun movie for the whole family to watch. I'm sure some people may find this movie offensive and they will be right. I'm also sure many will find the whole subject matter and themes offensive. That's okay, because this movie is about kids doing great things and it's not about what they think or what society thinks of them. This movie is about friendship, love, life, and enjoying yourself. I like that it is all about the kids and their lives, not about the parents. I also like that the only thing about this movie that I can say is offensive is that they made all the kids play with all the "offensive" stuff. I don't think that's all the kids want to be and all the adults think that's what they're going to see. This movie is for everyone, no matter what age you are. It's definitely worth a watch and definitely a family movie to watch. It will be a good thing to watch a good movie with the whole family, because most families can relate to this movie and enjoy it.

I loved this movie! It has such a fun feel to it. I think the actors were perfect for their parts. I think everyone should see this movie! This movie is definitely one to watch.
