Poitier and Cosby are a team to not be forgotten in this second collaboration of the actors. Following in the footsteps of the infectiously comedic Uptown Saturday Night, you catch a glimpse of the pre-Cosby Show actor and his surprisingly hilarious partner in crime Poitier as they attempt to outhustle the big time hustlers of New Orleans. The cast of characters are what defined 70s comedy in African American cinema including John Amos and Jimmy Walker from the TV show Good Times and Calvin Lockhart. The action scenes and sequences will have you rooting for the duo to pull off each and every stunt they attempt especially one that involves hypnotism. This film is so funny and the soundtrack featuring the Staple Singers add pizazz to the film. Definitely worth seeing.
This documentary is the most compelling look at the world through the eyes of four very different yet very similar babies. Even though they are reared in different corners of the world, the experiences of the first year of life of these cuties are so similar. From the discovery of hands and feet to the first time they utter the words "Mama" to their first steps, this film is a wonderful adventure. Highly recommended for moms-to-be.
Tina Fey and Steve Carell are hilarious in this movie. The unexpected celebrity cameos that occur in the film are a bonus including Ray Liotta and James Franco. The chain of events that the "boring couple from New Jersey" experience will surely keep you interested and laughing throughout the film. Definitely worth seeing on your own date night or with a bunch of friends.
George Clooney's character, Ryan Bingham, is appealing yet slightly cold. Bingham's quest to reach his 10 million frequent flyer miles is intertwined with his business assignments of telling corporation employees across the country that they must be let go. The movie offers an interesting perspective during these times of economic recession. By the end of the movie, you observe Bingham become a warmer individual as he deals with the realities of his career and the relationships he develops throughout.
