    Mr Beans Holiday-**- I think he's funny, but he is much better in a 20 minute series than a movie.

    I agree. His kind of comedy is hard to sustain over a long period.

    That movie just really pulled me in for some reason.... I adored Shelley Duvall's character.

    It wasn't bad but he does things that get aggravating after awhile; too many of those 'what did you do that for you idiot!' moments. But it all works out... its just frustrating.

    I took an Altman course in school. He is great and this is a good movie. Shelley Duvall is such a great freak in Nashville.

    I'm cheating here and putting in the last three movies i saw....here goes:

    Eastern Promises - the plot was alittle thin, but nevertheless i enjoyed it. Good performances all round, particularly from Viggo Mortensen.

    American Gangster - slightly disappointing. I felt that the film was alittle too long. The first hour dragged by, but it really picked up after that. The story of a real life gangster, this was a fascinating film. Denzel Washington is brilliant as the gangster Frank Lucas and IMO deserves an Oscar nom for this. Russell Crowe was ok but his performance was alittle flat in places.

    Disturbia - a good updating of Hitchcock's Rear Window. While the film certainly did not live up to the hype (it was boring in certain places); it still had enough to keep me entertained. Had the usual over the top Hollyweird ending. But Shia LaBeouf shined in his role. Definitely a star in the making. He makes for a very charming and charasmatic leading man.

    Withnail & I. ****

    I'd never seen it, it's from 1987, set in 1969 England. Considered a cult film. Amazing performances! I recommend watching it with a Brit though, because the slang and colloquialisms are a bit lost on Yanks. But it's very much worth seeing. Directed by Bruce Robinson who direted The Killing Fields. This was his debut. It's really more of a tragicomedy. Produced by Handmade Films, George Harrison's production company.

    It was on Turner Classic Movies last night, hosted by Tracey Ullman and another British guy. She was saying they should have received Oscars. I agree, especially about Richard E. Grant. He didn't drink IRL, but plays a drunk. The dircector described his performance as the best drunk acting he's ever seen. But his part is much more than that.

    'Love In The Time of Cholera'....don't go see it, wait till it comes out on DVD. The book is better and although Javier Bardem and Benjamin Bratt did a great job, the movie looked cheap to me. Bad makeup job, bad directing, ridiculous screenplay, etc...both those actors were too good for that film.

    Akeelah and The Bee. Great movie. One of the most satisfying endings to a movie that I've seen in a long time.

    We loved Akeelah kingcap. I didn't think my boys would watch it with me, but they sat right down and didn't make a peep the whole time.

    Greys, I stumbled across it by accident, and couldn't stop watching it. At first, I watched it because I love any movie with Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne in it together. But the overall story just sucked me in. And the girl playing Akeelah stole the entire movie.

    That movie is one of my all-time favourites. I gave it a good review when I was just starting out as a film critic and some reader wrote a letter to the editor demanding that I be fired because I'd obviously never seen the movie or I couldn't have given it a good review! Luckily the publisher liked it too and believed me.

    Somebody who didn't understand that there was a parallel universe - a desperate one - going on during the Be-attles and the general British Invasion. I also liked it because it really shows how many people lived (and probably still live) in England.

    Tracey Ullman commented that she knew a lot of guys like that when she first got into show business over 20 years ago.
