Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Danielle Sanchez-witzel & Joe Lawson Director: Jamie Babbit Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 I’ve given up on trying to figure out what the hell is going on with LOVE BITES. One week it’s horrendously bad, the next week it’s quite good. The tone has varied, the stories are all of the place, yet, some times it gets everything right. This week, with “Boys to Men”, the series almost feels like the writers have finally broken completely out of their shells and found clever ways of truly connecting […]Read On »

Stars: Kevin James, Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb, Ken Jeong, Donnie Wahlberg, Joe Rogan Writers: Nick Bakay & Rock Reuben & Kevin James and Jay Scherick & David Ronn based on a story by Jay Scherick & David Ronn Director: Frank Coraci Distributor: Sony/MGM Release Date: July 8, 2011 There have been bigger messes than ZOOKEEPER, which is one of the few nice things that can be said about this umpteenth talking animal movie. That said, one of the biggest problem with the film is that  it’s a film clearly geared toward children but it has no idea of how to […]Read On »

  Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Colleen McGuinness Director: John Scott Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: July 7, 2011 I don’t envy the writers and producers of LOVE BITES – NBC’s summer anthology series about love, romance and other dysfunctional relationship woes. It has to be hard to come up with new characters, situations and scenarios every week and then wrap them around a common theme. With established series, you have regular characters and quirks to carry you through those weeks where nothing is working. Here, outside of three recurring lead (who usually end up […]Read On »


TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Stand and Deliver”

  Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: David McHugh, Matt Flannegan Director: John David Cotes Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 30, 2011 It was bound to happen, but LOVE BITES takes a huge step backwards with “Stand and Deliver” after several weeks of striking a nice balance between its characters, storytelling and comedy. Nothing works in “Stand and Deliver,” which is a shame since I think this show has improved considerably since the pilot. The big issue comes back to storytelling and the guest cast – and this week it’s weak on all fronts (aside […]Read On »



THE HANGOVER PART II final poster |©2011 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong Writers: Craig Mazin & Scot Armstrong & Todd Phillips, based on characters created by John Lucas & Scott Moore Director: Todd Phillips Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: May 26, 2011 THE HANGOVER PART II isn’t especially funny. Don’t misunderstand – the movie isn’t direly un-funny like (random comparison) COP OUT. It’s genial, it has a plot that trots along decently, a good cast and gorgeous Thailand scenery. Still, it is struck somewhere between past glory that it can’t recreate and a new scenario that is better for […]Read On »

Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures, A Green Hat Films Production presented the Los Angeles Premiere of THE HANGOVER PART II on May 19th at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Hollywood Boulevard was closed between Highland and Orange to accommodate the fans, and all the press. The “black carpet” had HANGOVER printed on it and where I was standing they had big red letters stating the same. In THE HANGOVER PART II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu remembers the disastrous bachelor […]Read On »
