The Last Godfather

Fuggedaboutit. No, really: Fuggedaboutit.

According to the IMDb, Hyung-rae Shim is one of South Korea's most beloved comedians. After seeing "The Last Godfather," for which he serves as the writer/director/star, we'll agree to disagree.

At a clip

‘YERT’ in for a treat with several upcoming local screenings.

• In 2012, if you see only one documentary whose title is an acronym, make it “YERT.” Standing for “your environmental road trip,” the award-winning film follows a yearlong trip through all 50 of these United States to meet those men and women tackling environmental crises. The travelers also pledged to do so by creating less than one shoebox full of garbage per month, including recyclables. 

Filled with heart and humor, “YERT” screens at 7 p.m. Jan. 13 at Oklahoma City University’s Kerr McGee Auditorium in the Meinders School of Business, 2501 N. Blackwelder. Admission is free, thanks to the fine folks at Transition OKC, Sierra Club and Technology Unlimited Inc. For more information, visit

• Directed by Yukon resident Ryan Scott, the all-Okie indie comedy “Wolf Head,” gets a big-screen debut at 7 p.m. Jan. 19 at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas. Tickets are $7 (cash only), which isn’t bad at all to support a local fimmaker who, judging from the quality of the trailer, looks like he knows what he’s doing:

• “Clerks” director/airlines scourge Kevin Smith comes to town — well, beamed live, at least — with the one-night-only event, “Kevin Smith: Live from Behind.” Showing at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 2 at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, Cinemark Tinseltown USA and Norman’s Hollywood Spotlight 14, the three-hour show includes a Q-and-A with theater audiences and guest Jason Mewes for a recording of their “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” podcast. Tickets top $15, because pot ain’t free, you know. Visit

• One night before, at Tinseltown, you can catch “The Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think,” a sure-to-be-supper-trippy concert film filled with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. It’s another one-time event, so if you’re into block-rockin’ beats, mark your calendars for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 1.

• Anime nerds, unite! Japan’s “Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos” will screen for one day only, Jan. 20, at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas. If you know what that title means, this movie is geared directly toward you.

• Finally, one for your own living room: For the conspiracy theorist in you, Free Mind Films recently released “A Noble Lie: OKC ’95” on DVD. Directed by James Lane, the documentary raises questions about the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Spoiler alert: The official story is refuted. —Rod Lott

For a Good Time, Call ...

For a movie about phone sex, 'For a Good Time, Call ...' is surprisingly all heart.


Phil Bacharach
Bridesmaids was the shot across the bow, with HBO’s Girls the follow-up fusillade: Women can cuss, drink and drug with the best of ’em. In that spirit arrives For a Good Time, Call …, a comedy with the scenario of what happens when a pair of unlikely 20-somethings start a phone-sex service.
