Kissing Jessica Stein (2002)

You've never seen their faces before, so you're inclined to walk right by Kissing Jessica Stein and plunk your pennies down for something with big stars, something like The Time Machine, Dragonfly or A Beautiful Mind. But you'd be making a mistake. This little debut film by a couple of unknown New York charmers is one of the most highly entertaining films around, and -- better still -- one of the greatest romantic comedies of the past decade. That may sound like an exaggeration, but I've been pondering this for weeks now. I think we can agree that the high water mark for modern, post-Annie Hall romantic comedies thus far has probably been When Harry Met Sally... with a few memorable attempts in-between like Roxanne, Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral, While You Were Sleeping and Chasing Amy. But the very nature of the modern romantic comedy genre makes these films feel like poofs of air, vanishing in time before they're even fully digested. Kissing Jessica Stein is the first one in ages that feels like it's going to stick around. read more...

Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

Written by Nancy Oliver (TV's Six Feet Under and True Blood), Lars and the Real Girl (2007) starts with what sounds like a sitcom setup: a lonely man buys a lifelike doll and develops a relationship with her. Happily, the movie never goes for cheap laughs or easy situations, and when it seems like it's just about to go someplace overly familiar, it holds back. It remains rooted in human truth, finding beautiful emotions in the absurdity. read more...

High Fidelity (2000)

It's hard for me to objectively review a John Cusack movie because I grew up watching him and identifying with him. He was a geeky freshman in high school when I was a geeky freshman in high school (1984's Sixteen Candles). He was desperately in love when I was desperately in love (1989's Say Anything). And he just kept getting better and better in films like Stephen Frears' The Grifters (1990), Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway (1994), Clint Eastwood's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997), Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line (1998), and Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich (1999). He's like Generation X's version of Humphrey Bogart. When you see John Cusack being cool in a movie, you want to be him. And even though that's an adolescent's game, I haven't stopped playing it. read more...

Roxanne (1987)

Smart and dumb play pivotal roles in Steve Martin's brilliant 1987 comedy Roxanne. Saddled with a huge physical handicap, Martin's character C.D. Bales (based on Cyrano de Bergerac) has had to compensate by becoming smart, funny, agile and athletic. The first time we meet him, he outwits -- and outfights -- two bullies on the street using a tennis racquet and some perfectly pitched one-liners. read more...
