Dave (1993)

Written by Gary Ross and directed by Ivan Reitman, this good-hearted political fantasy seems silly, based on a one-line sitcom idea, but works so smoothly and so beautifully that it can restore your faith in America. Dave Mitchell (Kevin Kline) runs an employment agency and is a dead ringer for the crooked President of the United States. When the real POTUS suffers a stroke, Dave is tapped to impersonate him for an undetermined period of time. In reality, the evil White House Chief of Staff Bob Alexander (Frank Langella) has a plan for getting rid of both the president and the kindly Vice President (Ben Kingsley) and taking over the country. read more...

As Good as It Gets (1997)

In Deconstructing Harry, Woody Allen plays a New York writer unconcerned with offending anyone with his vulgar behavior. Sometimes Woody pulls it off and other times he just seems small. In As Good as It Gets, the new film by James L. Brooks, Jack Nicholson plays the same type of character, but when Jack does it, it sparkles. read more...

Warner Home Video has released a second Fred & Ginger box set, featuring five more of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' ten movies together. The first box blew the wad by including both favorites Top Hat (1935) and Swing Time (1936), but this second box has its pleasures as well. read more...

Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

The first Hollywood film in decades to incorporate an all-Asian cast, the romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians spoke to audiences in a big way, and became a huge hit. It's very conventional, but also quite charming, often funny, and lovely to look at, both in the beautiful cast and in the gorgeous, opulent sets and locations. The plot has Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) heading to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick (Henry Golding) for a wedding; the catch is that she has no idea he's super-rich and will have to deal with his traditional, inflexible family. Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, and Ken Jeong are among the huge cast. Jon M. Chu directed, from a novel by Kevin Kwan. read more...

Swing Time (1936)

According to legend, when Fred Astaire first auditioned for the movies, someone scrawled the following note: "can't sing, can't act, slightly balding, can dance a little." Of course, he went on to change the Hollywood musical forever, with his unassuming charisma, his light frame and his insistence on a certain kind of choreography. He shot each dance sequence, from head to foot, in its entirety, without cutting. That was a unique idea back then, but in today's world of music videos and Moulin Rouge, it's positively outrageous. read more...
