    Review: 'Gulliver's Travels' Another Big Budget Comedy With A Cast Showing Up & Cashing Paychecks

    Either it's a trend or a freak coincidence (or some mixture of both), but December has found A-list stars cashing paychecks and slumming it in sub-par material. Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and their silly putty faces floated through the turgid romantic thriller, " The Tourist," that was neither sexy nor exciting, and audiences smelled their half-hearted participation from a mile away. Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson failed to convince anybody to see James L. Brooks' over-populated, people-talking-on-telephones comedy "How Do You Know." Opening this week is "Little Fockers," the terrible forthcoming installment in ...

And now the Village Voice/L.A. Weekly poll has offered a similar outcome. Oscar ...

    Ninotchka

    In 1939, MGM released an effervescent, lightly satirical romantic comedy called NINOTCHKA (available on DVD) which ranks well among the enduring delights of American cinema, yet virtually all its makers were heavily accented Europeans: a Swedish superstar, Greta Garbo; a Polish-German director-producer, Ernst Lubitsch; two Viennese scenarists, Billy Wilder and Walter Reisch; a Hungarian story-writer, Melchoir Lengyel; a German composer, Werner Heymann; Prussian, Hungarian and German supporting actors, Felix Bressart, Bela Lugosi, and Sig Ruman. While the picture is about Russian aristocrats and communists (seduced by the Western world) in P...
