April 2005
Week of April 4th through April 8th


While horror and violent films have taken the box office lately with THE RING 2 and SIN CITY respectively, it's been comedy films that have ruled the marketplace for the most part with Tyler Perry's surprise hit, DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN and Bernie Mac's GUESS WHO. Also currently in theaters are BE COOL with Cedric the Entertainer, Andre Benjamin, Christina Milian, and The Rock, and BEAUTY SHOP, with Queen Latifah, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Golden Brooks, and Alfre Woodard. Let's not forget that HITCH, with Will Smith, is still packing the theaters after debuting in February.

Latest Review Additions:
Beauty Shop Review (in Film )
While some of the jokes take some time to get a chuckle, Latifah and the cast more than make up for it by bringing in their own comedic style and making the film enjoyable and worthy of being a spinoff.

Guess Who Review (in Film )
Times have definitely changed because Ashton Kutcher is no Sidney Poitier, but Bernie Mac pretty much holds the film and the politics together in this mildly entertaining film.

Miss Congeniality 2 Review (in Film )
With her next sequel, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, not only is it worse than "Speed 2", but it lacks the spark and charm that made the original cute and fun to enjoy.

Hostage Review (in Film )
Negotiate your way to this film in the perfect non-hostage venue: your house.

The Pacifier Review (in Film )
It does have some entertaining moments, but essentially is a half-hour sitcom beaten into two hours.

The Exorcist DVD Review (in Film )

Diary of a Mad Black Woman Review (in Film )
The balance of comedy and drama is wildly uneven in this film, but fans of the play will come out in droves to see Madea on the big screen.

Downfall Review (in Film )
It is a bold film that captures the sociopathic and delusional Hitler without portraying him as an unfeeling monster.

Hitch Review (in Film )
Will Smith brings back his comedic chops that made him a hit on TV and brings in Kevin James, who basically steals the films in his first try at the big screen.

Constantine Review (in Film )
It's a bewildering mess of special effects and truly horrid performances.

Imaginary Heroes Review (in Film )
The only saving grace is the performance of Sigourney Weaver, who props up the entire cast with her formidable screen presence.
