Rod Lott
Nine decades after women earned the right to vote, it’s unfortunate that “Bridesmaids” is being hailed as something revolutionary, as if the better half has never been funny onscreen before.

Hall Pass

There's something about this sex comedy: It's really funny!

Hesher / Just Peck

Grow up, you two!


Rod Lott
Two new movies tackle the coming-of-age dramedy in entirely different ways, yet neither succeeds in being particularly moving or reaching its goals, despite some strong moments. Meet "Hesher," which earned a theatrical release, and "Just Peck," which didn't.

For more than five decades, television’s “Saturday Night Live” has been a staple of pop culture (“Well, isn’t that special?”). For an Oklahoma City woman attending college in New York, however, it meant just another day in the office.

The Deadly Spawn: Millennium Edition

Gordon's "The Spider" to Jack Arnold’s “Monster on the Campus” — films in which severe deficiencies in budget are mitigated by ingenuity and charm.
