James Plath
Movie Metropolis

A throwback to the early Disney live-action films that coasted on their premises and were content to provide lightweight entertainment and nothing more.

Low IQ Canadian

The first American movie to explore the link between processed cheese and the need for love. A Hamburglar Joint.

Time has been kind to the discarded fat camp movie, finding Heavyweights more digestible these days, after years spent processing the askew sense of humor shared by Apatow and Company.
