Movie LINK
(2004) Sarah Steele as Bernice was my favorite in this movie. Although she is not, she looks like she could be Beau Bridges's daughter. The supporting cast was, by far, more interesting. Cloris Leachman is always great. (Although the best Cloris Leachman role remains "Institute Head Nurse Charlotte Diesel" in one of my absolute favorite movies, High Anxiety.) The stars of Spanglish -- Adam Sandler, Téa Leoni, & Paz Vega were "okay-ish."

I Spy
Movie LINK
(1993) Eddie Murphy & Owen Wilson are always funny. In this reprise of that old 60's show, they get a chance to be funny again.

Falling Down
Movie LINK
(2002) Michael Douglas plays a guy that is having a really bad day. Robert Duval gets to play the cop that puts it all together and ends up in the line of fire on his last day before retirement.

Wooly Boys

(2001) Peter Fonda, Easy Rider on a Greyhound, goes to visit daughter in the big Twin Cities. Leaves behind sidekick, Shuck (Kris Kristofferson) and Dakota, a sheepherding horse. Daughter tricks dying Stoney into the hospital, Shuck breaks him out and they head back to the North Dakota sheep ranch with grandson in tow, hijacking a hearst to get there. A heartstring tugging family movie with lovable grizzled actors. Sounds schmucky, I know, but it's worth a look.

(1997) Tommy Lee Jones stars in this contrivo-drama. There were some great action scences but the plot was forced and reminded me of Samantha and Friends and all those scintillating action-packed, haunted-house exploring, Scoobie style adventure stories we all wrote in the seventh grade -- except with a volcano.
