"To Rome, with Love": Woody Allen Maintains His Status Quo

In Woody Allen's new film, To Rome with Love, people — like, really young people — still talk, improbably, about "neuroses." Horny, middle-age businessmen actually stand around the water cooler and ogle the hot secretary, as in the Playboy cartoons…

Ashton Kutcher, I Have Something Else for Your Mouth

I remember the first time I saw Brent Weinbach on stage. He was a new (at least to me) comedian. And it was at the Punch Line in San Francisco. It was a Sunday night, and I was supposed…

It’s an Honor Just to Be Aggravated

It seems like only last March that Hollywood was holding its annual celebration of how great it is for the 81st time. Yes, it's that time of year again, and people are making wild speculations. Will The Young Victoria triumph…

Film, U.S.A.-holes


A parody of Gerry Anderson marionette shows (like Thunderbirds and Joe 90), Jerry Bruckheimer action movies, and the '80s cartoon/toy line M.A.S.K. , Team America: World Police boils all those ingredients down to their essences, starting with the theme song…

Lucky in Love

William H. Macy's plain-vanilla features and hangdog screen demeanor have served him well. Who could resist him as the clueless car dealer hatching the disastrous kidnapping plot in Fargo, or as the distraught husband of a frisky porn star in…
