BIG MOUTH: The first episode of this new series about school aged boys
with a desire to go to the school dance. Apparently, these boys spend
lots of time thinking about their penises and thinking abut their
friends penises and they spend their time hanging out, having sleepovers
where they secretly ejaculate next to each other. The desire to go to
the school dance is apparently tied to the opportunity to be close to
'real girls'...so that they can rub their pelvis up against that girl
for half a second while dancing and bring about yet another ejaculation.
The truth comes out that the only bullies seem to be themselves,
hormonally challenged jerks that they are; and when they get into the
boys bathroom they really spend their time playing in the toilet and
sharing clothes with each other in odd bonding moments.
WHATEVER WORKS: A 2009 Woody Allen film, this time with Larry David
starring in the Woody Allen role and Evan Rachel Wood in the much
younger woman role. This version of the character had a lot more
sass/bite than most versions and so the comedy actually had some edge to
it. This is one of Woody Allen's better efforts.
ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING: A 2015 'sci-fi' comedy starring Simon Pegg, Kate
Beckinsale, Robin Williams (in his last role), and John Cleese. The
premise here is that space aliens are wandering the galaxy looking for
worthy species to add to their galactic collective. In order to
determine worthiness, they select one being on the planet and give them
the power to do anything. This could have been an intelligent film, but
instead it mostly went for silly humor entirely revolving around the
idea that magical powers will act in ways that continually misinterpret
your actual desires. JUMANJI was sort of similar, but much better.
THE HERO: A 2017 dramedy starring Sam Elliott and Laura Prepon as an
unlikely couple navigating the Hollywood scene. Sam Elliott plays an
aging film star who's best days are behind him. Kristen Ritter plays
his daughter who is not on screen enough. More than anything, this was
a slow, depressing film about aging.
ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS: A 2016 Polish film about guys who want to
go to the dance. There was no plot and there was no script. The first
20 minutes of this film were simply filled with scenes of people hanging
out at boring dance parties. This was more documentary than anything
else and at the 20 minute mark I shut it off because these people's
lives offered up nothing of entertainment value.
