‘Wild Card’ Is A Bust (Movie Review)

Jason Statham has plenty of talent.  Best known as an English tough guy, Statham may not have what some want to call range, but he does know how to direct his energy and inherent charisma into different shades of somewhat similar performances (the dichotomy between The Transporter and Crank is a perfect example).  It is […]

Cedar Rapids is the Place to Be…

Is Ed Helms the nerdiest guy in Hollywood right now?   I mean he’s the nerd-in-residence on The Office, he played the nerdy dentist in the hit comedy The Hangover, and now we get Tim Lippe, insurance salesman and nerd extraordinaire in Cedar Rapids.  Tim Lippe is an innocent, wide-eyed, naïve, sappy  guy, who LOVES […]

‘Cedar Rapids’ Is Charming and “Super Awesome!”

Sometimes you can tell a lot from how good a comedy can be simply by the names of your main characters.  Standard, ho-hum comedies may go for simplicity with names like John or Jane without mention of a last name.  Other comedies like to have fun with all of the details, like this film for […]
