The Return of the Popcorn Circus: May 2008

In the first act of this four-part production, Tinsel Town decides to do some unbelievable front loading. Will there be room for independent offerings, or former HBO carnal comedy divas? Who knows? Without a doubt, it's an interesting way to start the season.

Is there a rule that decrees all movie-based games be mediocre?

Shrek the Third (2007)

Nothing looks to be ongoing so much as Shrek, except maybe the other sequel machines huffing and puffing this summer.

Monkey Business (Part 1: May)

Talk about frontloading your approach. Each week in this first full month of patented popcorn movies finds another famous franchise icon making a major blockbuster bow. Only truly disastrous results from these guaranteed crowd-pleasers will keep the coffers from clogging with cash.

The Holiday (2006)

The Holiday pretends its happy endings are premised on the women realizing their capacities as leading ladies. Really, what they're doing is finding the "right" men.

Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)

Whatever the writers' ambitious intentions for 'plot,' the movie is essentially a series of first, fabulous dance and stunts scenes, and second, zany costume changes.

There's Something More About Mary (1998)

It's easy to deride the Farrellys' work, to dismiss their brand of humor or their dogged efforts to be 'politically incorrect.' Still, they serve more substantive functions than dosing 12-year-old boys with chickens-up-the-butt jokes.
