Game Change

Sarah, we hardly knew ye ... which is exactly the point.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of the made-for-HBO Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same name. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) tells only half — maybe even just one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.

Beauty Day

Before ‘Jackass,’ there was Cap’n Video.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Don’t feel stupid: I didn’t know who Ralph Zavadil was, either. After all, we can’t be faulted for living in Oklahoma City instead of Ontario, Canada. Ultimately, it makes no difference, because Beauty Day, the documentary about the man, is a fun viewing nonetheless. That’s because there’s something about watching stunts of bodily harm that holds universal appeal.

Cultish comedy

"Weird Al" Yankovic’s Oklahoma-sized motion picture debut, UHF, celebrates 25 years this month.


Comedy

Louis Fowler

The summer of 1989 was one of the biggest blockbuster summers of all time, with hit movie after hit movie released, including Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. In the middle of this cluttered schedule, a little low-budget comedy starring song-parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic titled UHF was quietly released and then quickly disappeared into the cinematic flotsam.

Sex Tape

Even by summer-comedy standards, Sex Tape is a remarkably underwhelming affair.


Comedy

Zach Hale
How much do you really know about The Cloud? You know, that mysterious place — utilized by services such as Dropbox, iCloud, etc. — where we store digital data in order to access it across multiple devices. For Annie (Cameron Diaz, The Other Woman) and Jay (Jason Segel, The Five-Year Engagement), the kinky couple at the center of raunchy new comedy Sex Tape, the answer is not much. And like its protagonists, the movie is more awkward and hollow than it is stimulating.
