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.

Mr. Bean's Holiday

None August 30th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: B

That gangly human marionette Rowan Atkinson is back with another side trip into absurdity as the one-of-a-kind Mr. Bean.

This time, Bean is on his way to a week on the beach at Cannes when he loses his wallet and passport, and eventually teams up with a young boy (Max Baldry) on his way to Cannes to meet his father, and a lovely young starlet (Emma de Caunes) who's been invited to the film festival. Who cares about the story?

The main attraction is Atkinson as the part-frightening/part-endearing man-child, Bean. Some of the gags work better than others "” some don't work at all "” and many of them are left hanging as you expect a punch line that never comes, but you'll spend most of the movie's 90 minutes grinning and enjoying the big laughs that come from the kids around you. No nudity, swearing, drugs, booze or off-color humor "” and you may be surprised at how little you miss them. G
