Clueless is a timeless classic that even 25+ years later is still relevant today as it was then even when styles and lingo changes. The movie features some great performances especially from Silverstone.
Anchorman 2: The Legend of Ron Burgundy has a few amusing moments and biting satire on 24-hours news networks, but although the cast seems to work well with one another, I found the movie itself to drag on especially towards the end. As someone who wasn’t a huge fan of the original, I came into this with little expectations and it pretty well met them.
This is 40 is a huge misstep for Apatow and company. The characters are nasty and highly unlikeable, the script itself just isn’t very funny lending itself to maybe a chuckle or two and where Apatow’s previous endeavors had a certain heart behind the sex jokes is lost here. Also not helping matters is the fact the story drifts aimlessly with multiple subplots that often don’t even have a resolution.
Clueless is a timeless classic that even 17 years later is still relevant today as it was then even when styles and lingo changes. The movie features some great performances especially from Silverstone who probably deserved more award recognition than she got. As for this Blu-ray, if offers up the same features as the 10-year anniversary DVD and some decent video and audio upgrades.
Our Idiot Brother is an OK movie but for a comedy doesn’t offer up a lot of laughs and primarily rides the backs of the cast good performances, specifically that of Paul Rudd who makes an otherwise unfunny movie a bit more tolerable. The video and audio transfers are both nice but the disc lacks any substantive features save for a simple commentary.
There’s no doubt How Do You Know is a mess of a film yet there is some charm to it and if not for the spastic screenplay it might’ve made for an acceptable, if not forgettable, romantic comedy. Instead despite the efforts of the three leads – not to mention a heavy dose of overacting by Nicholson – the film never really takes off.
