Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving filled with good food and excellent company. As part of a tradition in my family, we watched the movie “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” starring John Candy and Steve Martin. This road trip comedy which no doubt influenced this year’s “Due Date,” tells the story of a man (Martin) racing home to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family.

His journey is terrorized by an obnoxious stranger (Candy) he can’t seem to shake. The odd couple is forced to travel together, enduring a comical series of catastrophes, while unwittingly forming a frien...
