No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche.

Witless Protection

None February 28th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: F

Comedian Larry the Cable Guy once again dons an array of sleeveless shirts and assembles the A-material that pays his bills. Unfortunately, his A-material usually has something to do with poop, stinky feet, processed food or spandex on a fat guy.


Larry plays Larry, a sheriff's deputy with ambition to further his law-enforcement career. When suspicious characters he believes to be kidnappers come through his town, Larry jumps into action and steals their hostage. As everyone but Larry can plainly see, the "kidnappers" are FBI agents transporting a witness to trial. Chasing interspersed with bodily functions, dum-dum dialogue ("Are you insane?" "No, I'm Larry"), and the occasional racist comment (calling a Muslim fellow "Pamper-head") follows.


It's best not to think too hard about how this wad of dog-flop came into existence or how much time and money were wasted in the process. It's too painful to think of the literally millions of things on which those resources would have been better spent. PG-13
