Face/Off

faceoffTwo hammy actors equal less than the sum of their hammy parts. Mmmm...hammy parts! Director John Woo increases the "watchability" factor. (Maine Mall Cinema)

My Best Friend's Wedding

mbfwA morally complex role for Julia makes for a funny, original comedy. Cameron Diaz tries very hard to steal the movie from Roberts. But the big logical gap in the plot still burns us: Why would Julia fight so hard to catch... Dermot Mulroney? He doesn't strike anyone as the "guy-friend you are in love with but don't realize it until it's too late". I love how she starts smoking whenever her anxiety cranks up. (Flagship Falmouth Cinemas)
