MARSHALL movie poster | ©2017 Open Road

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell Writers: Jacob Koskoff & Michael Koskoff Director: Reginald Hudlin Distributor: Open Road Release Date: October 13, 2017 Going into MARSHALL, knowing only that it stars Chadwick Boseman as legal legend Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, one can be forgiven for supposing it’s a biopic. In fact, MARSHALL is based on a very small slice of biography. Set in 1940, when Marshall was the top lawyer for the N.A.A.C.P., the film turns out to be a mixture […]Read On »

Bill Pullman is currently starring as U.S. President Dale Gilcrist in NBC’s new half-hour comedy 1600 PENN, Thursdays at 9:30 PM. In addition to matters of state, Pullman’s chief executive has to contend with how three of his children (Martha MacIsaac, Amara Miller, Benjamin Stockham) react to their relatively new stepmother (Jenna Elfman) and the well-meaning but often embarrassing exploits of his oldest son Skip, played by Josh Gad, who created 1600 PENN with Jon Lovett and Jason Winer. Pullman has just finished a raucously funny Q&A session at the Television Critics Association press tour for 1600 PENN with his […]Read On »

Stars: Josh Gad, Jenna Elfman, Martha MacIsaac, Andre Holland, Amara Miller, Benjamin Stockham and Bill Pullman Writer: Jon Lovett Director: Jason Winer Network: NBC Original Telecast: Dec. 17th, 2012 Chris Farley tried hard to emulate John Belushi before breaking out on his own in the 1990s and now Josh Gad (from the hit Broadway musical BOOK OF MORMON) is trying desperately to mimic Farley, only coming off as a third rate Belushi, without any of the charm both Belushi and Farley embodied. The format Gad is using is an ineptly scripted sitcom named 1600 PENN (which got a sneak preview […]Read On »

TV Review: GOOD VIBES – Season 1 premiere – “Pilot”

Mondo and Lonnie in GOOD VIBES - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Network: MTV, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 With so many animated series vying for audience attention on network and cable television, GOOD VIBES feels like it’s come a little too late to the party. It’s MTV’s companion piece of the return of BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD and it’s a nice fit – it has  similar scatological humor, but it also doesn’t break any new ground either. The premiere episode introduces us to the overweight Mondo (voice of Josh Gad). He’s just moved to the Sunny California beach town of Playa Del Toro with his hot mom Babs (Debi […]Read On »

Movie Review: LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS

LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS movie poster | © 2010 20th Century Fox

There’s a telling movie to be made about the pharmaceutical drug trade in the U.S. (and elsewhere), but LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS isn’t it. This wouldn’t be a problem if LOVE wasn’t aspiring to be that movie, while simultaneously putting romance front and center.
