Simple Men  A very independent movie - it is about 2 brothers who are looking for their father, but they are both also running away from things. The script does some interesting things with repetition and circular dialog. But overall I never cared for any of the characters too deeply. It is well shot and if you like quirky movies, where the dialog and emotions are not very much like real life, but stylized- you will enjoy this movie

Rating:  5. I would recommend this on a case by case basis
Scruff- mostly scruff free, but a few of the guys sneak in beards

School of Life Ryan Reynolds is pretty. Chris Gauthier (Vince on Eureka) is made of awesome, especially  as an PE coach. The movie is pretty heart warming. John Astin show up briefly and sets the tone for the movie. David Paymer plays Matt Werner. Matt's dad,  Stormin' Norman Werner (John Astin) has won teacher of the year for 42 years straight and then he dies. Matt decides to try to win the next year, but ultra cool teacher Mr. D (Ryan Reynolds) shows up and works his own kind of magic with the students. This movie became much more then a silly little comedy about 1/2 way through and left me crying for the last 1/3. It is a sweet under appreciated effort.
Rating:  7. Would watch again with friends
Scruff: a tiny bit but for the most part smooth

Superbad I thought Nick and Nora was a much better movie. I just never really cared about any of the characters. I kinda liked McLovin for all of his dorkness, but the overacting and cheap jokes wore on me after a while. If I were a boy I think I  might have been able to relate to the movie, but since I never was male and never saw the big deal about alcohol, I had trouble relating.

Rating: 2. MEH
Scruff: None really they are H.S. Students

The Alibi (Lies & Alibis) The first scene is Jerry O'Connell in an American  flag thong - please put some clothes on that boy and show him to the buffet- he was way way too thin.  This is a good caper story, it takes a while for it to all build and come together and at times is a weee bit confusing, but if you like Leverage, or Hustle, I think you would enjoy the movie. It is not flawless - but is a fun ride. Steve Coogan is awesome in it.

Rating:  8. Would Watch again by myself
Scruff: A little bit of scruff but not too much

You Don't Mess with the Zohan  if all the racial stereo types were not bad enough, the dick jokes, Mariah Carey trying to act, the part that I hated the most was Cat hacky sack. This is just a terrible movie with a ton of known names.  I liked Zoolander, but this movie was just a lame and terrible movie,  I would have to suspend my disbelief sooo much that it would no longer exist (that makes no sense and neither does the movie)

Rating:  3. I watched it so you don't have to
Scruff: Lots and lots ..
 
Mood:: 'complacent' complacent
