Jack And Jill
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: I love laughing. Nothing feels as good as a big fat belly laugh... Well, maybe one other thing, but laughing is definitely right up there. So I was really looking forward to seeing Adam Sandler's new film 'Jack and Jill,' directed by Dennis Dugan (Grownups). It's a comedy, right? Wrong!

There is absolutely nothing funny about this movie. This is a really bad film that totally condescends to its audience.

Good comedy has to have a basis in reality. The characters have to be believable. They can be over-the-top, but they have to be real pe...

Just Go With It
Last week I did not catch anything new in theaters, but I had the opportunity to see Ben Affleck’s Boston crime thriller “The Town” and the noir drama “Winter’s Bone” on Netflix. Both turned out to be quite enjoyable, although I found “Winter’s Bone” slightly more captivating than “The Town.”

Despite some obvious similarities to Michael Mann’s “Heat,” Affleck manages to spin this tale about robbers from the working-class neighborhood of Charlestown into a compelling movie. His focus on the people from this community is what propels the story. There are frantic bank heists, memorable cha...
