Half and Half

Dealing with complicated familial history, rather than relying on man-chasing for every plot, will set Half and Half apart.


Good Morning, Miami

Focuses on an irresistibly cute couple whose lives are complicated by their hormones and their over-the-top coworkers.


8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter

What makes the show slightly twisted is the knowledge that only a few years ago, John Ritter would have been playing one of his daughters' sex-obsessed suitors.


C.S.I.: Miami

Trapped (2002)

Scary as this sounds -- Courtney Love channeling Claire Standish or Andie Walsh -- it might explain a few things about what was going on in Trapped.


Snatch (2000)

Snatch is all about attitude and style. And guys, lots of guys.


Sweet Home Alabama (2002)

I won't tell you how it ends, but note the film's title is 'not' 'New York State of Mind.'"


Snipes (2001)

As Erik puts it, he has 'business to take care of.' That business is hip-hop.


Secretary (2002)

Secretary is about anxiety, depression, the inability to communicate.


Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death and Rebirth / The End of Evangelion (1997)

Multi-layered, ultraviolent, and profoundly disturbing, Evangelion depicts the end of the world as we know it and after seeing it, I most definitely do 'not' feel fine.


The Lady and the Duke (L’Anglaise et le duc) (2001)

Rohmer dehumanizes the mob, and encourages the audience to participate in the objectification. It's the aesthetic equivalent of the guillotine, chopping off spectator imagination.
