  • Starsky & Hutch (PG-13) ****
    They were television's original "buddy" cops. Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul in many ways pioneered the road that Mel Gibson and Danny Glover would traverse on the silver screen. And "Starsky & Hutch," like many of the other prog
  • Better Late Than Never ... 2004 Oscar Preview
    I know, I know. The Oscars are probably over by the time that you read this. You'll just have to accept, on my word, that this was posted prior to showtime ... at about 6:15pm Eastern Time on Sunday evening.
  • Clifford's Really Big Movie **
    I know, I know. It's a kid's movie. It's about cute, animated talking animals, and is designed to sell toys, or if it's really ambitious, maybe a book or two. Still, would it kill Scholastic Books, who makes a killing on Norman Bridwell
  • The Passion of the Christ ***
    Now that my eyes have dried, and the sniffles are receding, I can make an effort to review that movie that you've heard so much about over the past several months, "The Passion of the Christ." It's only fair, however, to let you know the
  • “Everybody Loves Raymond”, But Will We See Him in September?
    Amidst the countless tearful farewells to the casts of “Friends” and the backbiting from the also-retiring “Frasier,” the biggest cliffhanger of the 2003-4 television season involves the show whose fate has not yet been determined. As I write this, Ray R
  • DVD Review: The Dick van Dyke Show (Season 1) *****
    I can still remember the televison set. Must have been about an eight inch screen, only black and white, and it had a regular place at the dining room table until dinner time. Of course, back in the late sixties, it didn't much matter that
  • Oscar '04 with a Few Surprises ...
    There's a "Lord" and a "Master" up for Best Picture this year. But don't look for any cast members of "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" or "Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World" in any acting c
  • Along Came Polly ***
    The setup seems promising. Professional guy-next-door Ben Stiller does a "Monk" routine and romances professional girl-next-door Jennifer Aniston, channeling Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly. Throw in a stellar supporting cast, and you could
  • DVD on TV: A Viewer's Guide ...
    "What? "Firefly"'s on DVD? But it was only on for like six weeks!" "When are they going to release the ORIGINAL 'Star Trek' episodes in season sets?" "Who knew that 'NYPD Blue' was out? What was the big
  • "Stuck On You" **
    The notoriously politically incorrect Farrelly brothers pull their punches in a light, frothy, deformity comedy.
  • Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ****
    Peter Jackson's dream project culminates in a most satisfying fashion.
  • "Haunted Mansion" is a Ghoulish Mess **
    Someone needs to start an intervention. Because we love Eddie Murphy. We loved him as Buckwheat in Saturday Night Live. We thrilled to the adventures of Axel Foley in "Beverly Hills Cop." He made us laugh in "Trading Places" and the fi
  • Could “The Birth of the Pink Panther" be the Death of the Pink Panther?
    At least once each decade, Blake Edwards tries to revive his late, lamented “Pink Panther” series of films, which saw their heyday in the mid seventies. Last week, the inevitable announcements arrived: Steve Martin would portray Inspector Clouseau, and J
  • Movie Review: Looney Tunes: Back in Action**
    If you're at all like me, you just started giggling as soon as each commercial began airing promoting the long-awaited return of Bugs, Daffy, and the rest of the gang to the silver screen. I confess. I'm mad about the Warner Brothers cartoons. I
  • MOVIE REVIEW: "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" *****
    It is the rarest of films. It transports you into another time and another place, and makes you feel like a participant, not just a witness. Peter Weir's "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" is based on events in Patrick O'Br
