84th and Broadway
Scary Movie 4
Just to clarify, the implication of the title is that it’s the fourth in a series scary movies, rather than a movie that is scary simply because it’s the third sequel to a stupid and unfunny movie.
This is an Adam Sandler film produced by Adam Sandler’s production company that stars Adam Sandler’s friends and whose plot seems like a remake of a bunch of other Adam Sandler movies. Not starring Adam Sandler.
Her dreams are about to get a whole lot bigger.
Mo’nique is hitting the big time.
This spring, think big.
Mo’nique proves that bigger really is better.
We misspelled both words in our title. So there!
Broadway between 62nd and 63rd
Look Both Ways
Completely Australian, partially animated, and possibly entertaining.
The Notorious Bettie Page
Remember Vanity Fair cover-girl Gretchen Mol? No, didn’t think so. But in this film, directed by American Psycho’s Mary Harron, she plays Bettie Page, who was, um, notorious.
68th and Broadway
A whimsical comedy about a small British town that learns of the existence of non-white, non-straight people from a black transvestite. Insert joke referencing The Full Monty, Saving Grace, The Big Tease, and Waking Ned Devine here.
Remember Dreamworks’ Madagascar, which was released last year? According to Disney, you don’t. Also, it’s worth noting that the film is directed by Steve ‘Spaz’ Williams.
Take the Lead
Antonio Banderas, the very definition of caliente.
Friends with Money
A movie starring Jennifer Aniston, Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener, and Frances McDormand probably will not do well with the target audience of Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector. Which means it will probably do very well.
A classic heist movie (there’s a fedora hat) that’s also completely modern (there is high-tech surveillance equipment), thanks to Spike Lee (there is social commentary) and Denzel Washington (there is awesomeness).
