An alcoholic hit man is sent to San Francisco by his “family” to achieve sobriety. You Kill Me is another “mobster in therapy” movie, but with a fresh perspective.

Vacancy

Nimròd Antal’s Vacancy takes us back to the days of suspense -- when the chase was exhilarating on its own – not just the means to a morbid end.

You Kill Me (2007)

While he's largely unsocialized, having spent so much time alone, murdering people, and, lately, drinking, Frank does evince a weird charm.

Reviews

Vacancy (2007)

The movie is 80 minutes of mostly entertaining tension, punctuated by violence engineered by a creep using criminally outdated technology.

Reviews

Idiocracy (2006)

A brilliantly conceived, but fitfully executed comedy about how bad things are likely to get if we keep going where we're going.

Reviews

My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006)

This film hovers somewhere between sappy romantic comedy and action movie, falling back on lazy gender-reversal jokes and super hero tropes.

Legally Blonde: Platinum Collection (2001/2003)

The audio commentary featuring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Luketic demonstrates the leading lady to be much more thoughtful and subdued than her typical roles might suggest.

'Actually,' Frank Coraci begins his commentary for Around the World in 80 Days, 'I never wanted to do a director's commentary.'"

Around the World in 80 Days (2004)

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003)

The first time around, Elle's chirpy charm seemed fresh and campy; now it's formula.

Alex & Emma (2003)

It is Alex's fantasy into which the film and Emma's seeming interests devolve.

Old School (2003)

Peddling the same jokes and ideas as countless other undistinguished 'Animal House' wannabes, 'Old School' is too dutiful for its own good.
