Ferrell keeps laughs coming in latest movie

...can - not get in the way. Michael Keaton is a welcome addition as their accidentally TLC-referencing captain, and Eva Mendes is sure pretty. Oh, sorry. She plays Gamble's wife and the joke there, of course, is that Hoitz cannot fathom...

Holy Motors

Opens Wednesday, Oct 17, 2012 Synopsis: This freewheeling surrealist outing from France attempts to dispense almost completely with conventional narrative structure; instead, it offers a series of absurdist sketches with scarcely any discernible connection between them. The film opens on a character played by director Leos Carax known only as "Le Dormeur." After waking up one morning, he somehow locates and opens a secret door in his apartment, and wanders into a packed movie house where an audience watches King Vidor's classic The Crowd and a giant dog wanders up and down the aisles. Meanwhile, Oscar (Denis Lavant) rides to work in a white limousine driven by his close friend and associate Céline (Edith Scob); Oscar's job, it seems, involves using makeup, elaborate costumes, and props to carry out a number of complex and unusual scenarios. Of these, one has the actor performing an action sequence and simulated sex with an actress on a soundstage while he's filmed by an off-camera director. The second sequence puts him in a sewer with Monsieur Merde, a character who first appeared in Carax's segment in the omnibus picture Tokyo!; here, Merde falls in love with a beautiful model (Eva Mendes) who accompanies him on a jaunt through a cemetery. Subsequent episodes cast Oscar in a deathbed melodrama, a gangster film, a musical alongside pop star Kylie Minogue, and much more. At one point in the picture, Carax implies that Oscar may be acting these scenes out for hidden cameras, which are webcasting the episodes for Internet surfers. An intriguing footnote: Movie buffs may experience some déjà vu while watching Scob in this film, as she's deliberately used to invoke her characterization from Georges Franju's 1960 horror classic Eyes without a Face, and at one point, even wears a facial mask similar to the one she donned in that picture. Holy Motors marked Carax's first feature since the 1999 Pola X. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi Cast: Denis Lavant, Edith Scob, Eva Mendes, Kylie Minogue, Michel Piccoli Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Girl in Progress

Opens Friday, Apr 27, 2012 Synopsis: A young girl with a single, absentee mother attempts to accelerate her transition into adulthood with the help of her best friend, and learns some important lessons about growing up in the process. Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) doesn't have a father, and her mother Grace (Eva Mendes) is hardly an inspirational role model. Insulting, inconsiderate, and often too busy with work or men to give her daughter any real attention, Grace is in the midst of an affair with a married doctor (Matthew Modine) when her handsome co-worker (Eugenio Derbez) tries to sweep her off her feet. Meanwhile, in English class, Ansiedad begins to grasp the concept of the archetypal "coming of age" story with the help of her concerned teacher Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), and decides that it's high time she left adolescence behind. Together with her best friend Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), Ansiedad hatches a plan to accelerate her development, even if it means willingly sacrificing some of her own innocence along the way. Little does Ansiedad realize that growing up isn't just about getting older, but getting wiser as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Eva Mendes, Matthew Modine, Cierra Ramirez, Patricia Arquette, Raini Rodriguez Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
