Ghost Town

Has some of the best dialog in a movie this year. I hadn't seen that much of Rickie Gervais, but I'll be sure to catch more of him in the future. Net-net – a funny movie with a bad title.

Lakeview Terrace

Samuel L. Jackson is a fine actor who doesn't always seem to be in movies that showcase his talent. He's pretty good in this one, and it's a fine melodrama, until the last ten minutes or so, which didn't work very well for me.

My Best Friend's Girl

This is one of those movies that tries to be both a gross-out and a romantic comedy. Actually, it works okay at both ends. Kate Hudson is funny, as she often is; Dane Cook does a nice job in his part, but he always seems a little one-dimensional for my taste.

The Women

I like books about women; I like movies about women; I did not particularly like The Women. It's always tricky when a writer moves to job of writer-director. I'm not sure that's what went wrong here, but something did. Did, at least for me.
