114 mins     Action , Comedy, Crime, Romance, Thriller      

In "Silver Streak", the first of the Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor movies, Gene Wilder stars as George Caldwell a book editor travelling to Chicago by train. But it is one hell of an eventful ride as not only does he find rom...

Fun with Dick and Jane

Fun with Dick and Jane (1977)   3/53/53/53/53/5

Roxanne (1987)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Comedy, Romance      

"Roxanne" is a movie adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac a play which has made its way on to the big screen as well as small screen quite a few times since it was written in 1890. But "Roxanne" is a Hollywood ad...

Hart to Hart: Old Friends Never Die

Hart to Hart: Old Friends Never Die (1994)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Adventure , Crime, Mystery, TV Movie      

So "Hart to Hart: Old Friends Never Die" was the 4th of the 8 "Hart to Hart" TV movies and the third which came out in 1994. Maybe that has something to do with it as sadly whilst the 2nd and 3rd movie in this series of movie...

Idle Hands

Idle Hands (1999)   3/53/53/53/53/5

92 mins     Comedy, Horror, Thriller      

In my movie dictionary under the definition for inconsistent comedy horror it says see "Idle Hands". I'm kidding when it comes to the whole movie dictionary thing but "Idle Hands" does end up inconsistent and that comes from ...

Best in Show

Best in Show (2000)   4/54/54/54/54/5

90 mins     Comedy      

On first glance "Best in Show" looks like one of those spoof documentary comedies which I don't get, I just usually find these sorts of movies unfunny. And to be honest I didn't have great hopes when I finally decided to watc...

American Pie: The Wedding

American Pie: The Wedding (2003)   2/52/52/52/52/5

96 mins     Comedy      

Despite often bordering on the gross I enjoyed the first "American Pie", I even thought "American Pie 2" was okay, but I have to say that the third instalment "American Pie: The Wedding" or "American Wedding" as it's also kno...

Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5

90 mins     Comedy      

Will Ferrell is one of the guys who's style of comedy is either going to make you love him or loathe him. For me I fall into the latter group and can count the number of Will Ferrell movies which I really enjoy on just one ha...

Harold And Kumar Get The Munchies

Harold And Kumar Get The Munchies (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5

84 mins     Comedy      

I have really mixed feelings over "Harold & Kumar Get the Munchies" or "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" as it is also known as even though I found several parts of it ridiculously funny, and also refreshingly different, ...

Chicken Little

Chicken Little (2005)   3/53/53/53/53/5

81 mins     Adventure , Animation, Comedy      

I guess that for the right age group Disney's "Chicken Little" is entertaining, it looks like it hits the mark but I am clearly not in the movie's intended age group. You see whilst "Chicken Little" is an animation I wouldn't...

Date Movie

Date Movie (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

85 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Sublime, brilliant, hilarious and clever are none of the words which come to mind when thinking of ways to describe "Date Movie" a movie which tries to have fun spoofing the romantic comedy genre. I say tries because quite fr...

I Could Never Be Your Woman

I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007)   4/54/54/54/54/5

97 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

It's quite surprising that "I Could Never Be Your Woman" ended up as a straight to DVD movie rather than getting the theatrical release it deserves. With a pedigree which includes director Amy Heckerling and starring Michelle...

Epic Movie

Epic Movie (2007)   1/51/51/51/51/5

86 mins     Comedy      

I don't know why this is the case but when someone delivers a reasonably good spoof movie it opens the floodgates for a load of basically crap ones. In 2000 we got the reasonably amusing "Scary Movie" and then the gates opene...


WALL·E (2008)   4/54/54/54/54/5

98 mins     Adventure , Animation, Family      

Not since I was a child has an animation mesmerised me in the way which "WALL.E" did, in fact even as a grown up there have been very few movies which mesmerised like this tale of two robots in the future. From the astounding...

Youth in Revolt

Youth in Revolt (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

I am sure Michael Cera is a really nice guy but watching him play the same sort of nerdish character in one movie after another gets too much, especially when you struggled with the dweeby virgin thing the first time around. ...

Accidentally in Love

Accidentally in Love (2011)   3/53/53/53/53/5

88 mins     Comedy, Drama, TV Movie      

I watch a lot of Hallmark movies and whilst it would be fair to say when it comes to their romantic comedies the main formula has stayed the same some things have changed over the years. It may only be 5 years since "Accident...

12 Wishes of Christmas

12 Wishes of Christmas (2011)   3/53/53/53/53/5

87 mins     Comedy, Fantasy, TV Movie      

12 Wishes of Christmas (2011) Elisa Donovan is the busy woman who discovers that after being given 12 wishes there are consequences to what she wished for...

Your Love Never Fails

Your Love Never Fails (2011)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Comedy, Family, Romance, TV Movie      

Shown on Hallmark Movies & Mystery I would have to say that there isn't really much mystery to "Your Love Never Fails" as it unsurprisingly reworks the whole city girl storyline heading back home, in this case to rural Texas,...

The Magic of Belle Isle

The Magic of Belle Isle (2012)   3/53/53/53/53/5

109 mins     Comedy, Drama      

"The Magic of Belle Isle" makes me wonder whether a studio picked up the sort of story which gets made for TV and rather than selling it on decided to try and make it with some big screen stars. The trouble is that when you t...
