Bottle Rocket (1996)
***1/2 out of ****     It's impossible for a guy like me not to enjoy something as endearingly off-kilter as Wes Anderson's debut. "Bottle Rocket" is a quirky movie that manages to …

Also flawed but worth a few hours: Gary Shteyngart's dystopian novel "Super Sad True Love Story," which I reviewed last month here. Both satires preditct how quickly literacy could plummet and stupidity …

May be the greatest movie about "epic stupidity" made! It does have its flaws but for sheer stupid fun, this is a must-see!! "Not Sure" is a character and "A$$ the movie" …

Idiocracy (2006)
Not as good as Office Space, but it's worth a watch ... if only for the de-evolution of humanity case studies. That's pretty funny. ALSO, Luke Wilson plays a guybrarian before he's cryogenically frozen. …

Middle Men (2010)
A section in the end credits for "Middle Men" asserts that, although it was inspired by a true story, the film is, in fact, a work of fiction. I've tended to find this annoying, especially in relation …

Old School
I wasn't expecting high-class comedy from Will Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and Luke Owen, but even so I thought this movie was puerile to the extreme. The movie is filled with stupid characters, sex-related …

Idiocracy (2006)
Rumor has it that Fox, after reviewing the final cut of this film, tossed it directly in the Direct to DVD bin. In this case, that turned out to be a win-win. Fox gets to avoid some responsibility of …

Henry Poole Is Here
This is a sweet little tearjerker. Nothing heavy - in fact, it is more or less a comedy.     Henry Poole (Luke Wilson) is told he has only weeks to live. He abandons his current life …

Idiocracy (2006)
The main point of this movie is that intelligent people wait to have children until they are set in their careers and have a stable life while stupid people breed like rabbits.  I don't usually like …

Henry Poole Is Here
I read a few reviews of this quirky and sweet film before renting it. Actually, I bought it based on the reviews and am glad I did. One reviewer mentioned the extreme number of introspective Luke Wilson …

Unable to move into the house he grew up in, Henry Poole buys a house nearby, unconcerned that it is overpriced and in poor condition, since, he says, he doesn't plan to be there long. He just wants to …

Idiocracy (2006)
This tale reminded me somewhat of Woody Allen's Sleeper. Luke Owen is put into suspended animation and wakes up 500 years later to find that man has evolved to complete idiocy, leaving him the world's …

Idiocracy (2006)
The mastermind of "King of the Hill" and "Beavis and Butthead," Mike Judge, gives all of us a loud, buffoonish warning of things to come in "Idiocracy." It's the tale of an average joe/military librarian …

Even though he's only made four movies, Wes Anderson is one of the most talented, interesting, and quirky directors in the business. He's still young, but with only four films under his belt he's already …
