Hell on Earth

And it feels like it.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In simplest terms, producer Ted Bohus’ new-to-DVD “Hell on Earth” reads a lot like his most famous film, the new-to-Blu “The Deadly Spawn”: Most of it takes place in one house, with a family and a few invited friends menaced by an otherworldly force.

Annie Hall

Love is too weak a word.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
What’s there to say about Annie Hall? It’s an American classic, arguably Woody Allen’s finest film and perhaps one of the best romantic comedies of all time. The fact that it served as a turning point for Allen from full-bore comedies to more ambitious (if just as funny) stuff can make it easy to take for granted.

Friends with Kids

With Friends like these, who needs friends?


Comedy

Rod Lott
Jennifer Westfeldt is a smart woman. So why does her latest film, Friends with Kids, feel so seen-it-already?

Carnage

Can’t we all just get along? Roman Polanski’s amusing comedy of manners, ‘Carnage,’ suggests not.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Given the tumultuous and tragic nature of director/child rapist Roman Polanski’s life, it’s no surprise he rarely touches comedy. Until the recent “Carnage,” only 1967’s “The Fearless Vampire Killers” and 1986’s flop “Pirates” gunned for laughs.

National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus

This 300 parody registers as a 0.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I understand 300 was a huge hit, but was it such a cultural milestone that it deserves — by my count — three feature-length parodies? And if it does, why not a good one? Hell, I'd settle for a mediocre one.

Breaking Wind

Pffffffttttttt.


Comedy

You need not have seen a single Twilight film to get the jokes in the parody Breaking Wind, because there aren’t any.
