Funny Face

Heterosexual coupling wins the day, but the relationship that really counts in this film is between the two people who aren’t in love with each other, but rather with fashion.

Reviews

The Wackness

Ultimately, this film is neither dope nor wack — it’s just kind of boring.

Reviews

Mamma Mia!

The kind of movie whose campiness you just have to give into if you want to enjoy it -- and then you'll have a blast.

American Slapstick, Vol. 2

If you have a taste for the forgotten, the obscure, and the lost, American Slapstick, Vol. 2 is for you.

The Beverly Hillbillies: The Official Second Season

In addition to being occasionally hilarious this show also lays bare urban fantasies about rural life and people.

Reviews

Princess Aurora

Equal parts thriller, clunky melodrama, and female slasher film, this has moments of stylistic beauty and wit, but not much depth.

Reviews

Join Us

Without sensationalizing or caricaturing, this film attempts to explain why people join cults and how they get stuck there.

Over Her Dead Body

Its humor is, to put it kindly, unsophisticated, and forms the backdrop to a love story that feels like being stuck on an awkward first date.
