Made-Up Reviews

[font=Arial Black]So many of you will recall that in June 2002, my friend Dan and I went to the Lake Placid Film Festival on our way home from CPR certification at Camp. Dan was basically dragged since I was driving and I was his ride home. "Dan, you want to check out the Lake Placid Film Festival?" was not as much a question but Steve-speak for "Hey Dan, we're going to the Lake Placid Film Festival!"[/font]

[font=Arial Black]The film we saw there (slim pickings since it was one of the last time slots of the festival) was called [u]Made Up[/u]. It was the directorial debut of Tony Shaloub, current Emmy champ for Monk. I always liked him in Wings as Antonio and I liked his supporting work from movies like Men in Black and A Civil Action. So we saw it. We went over to the Hilton, where the screening was happening. When we walked in, I saw a familiar face. Thats right -- Tony Shaloub. He was talking to some people and I didnt want to disturb him. Just to make sure I asked the lady selling tickets, "Thats Tony Shaloub, right?" and she told me "Yeah, he'll be speaking at the screening...you sexy piece of ass." Ok, ok...I was joking about part of that. She didnt really say he'd be speaking at the sceening. [/font]

[font=Arial Black]The movie itself was all right. It was done partly in documentary fashion, since one of the characters was an aspiring filmmaker, they showed parts of it through her lens, as she videotaped the process of transforming her mother into someone more physically beautiful. Despite the film's slow pace, it was enjoyable. After about half of it, you know whats going to happen. It just took a while to get to the point. Shaloub himself turns up in a supporting role and he keeps the movie from getting stale. His wife Brooke Adams stars, and she really carries the movie well. All in all it was not a thrilling experience, but it was fine for what it was.[/font]

[font=Arial Black]The real thrill came after. Tony answered questions, but I couldn't think of any that pertained to the film. I am not sure that "What was Steven Weber really like?" would have been well-received. So after the Q&A, everyone left and Tony hung back. So I went over and talked to Tony and shook his hand and told him how much I love Wings (still one of my all time favorite sitcoms) and that I was a big fan. We talked about possible distribution deals for [u]Made Up[/u]. He was not even close to a deal and was getting kind of discouraged. But he enjoyed showing it at festivals, people were responding to it. [/font]

[font=Arial Black]So the point of this entry is that [u]Made Up[/u] is coming to a theater in the same country as you. It will be a theater near you if you live in NY or LA, and eventually San Francisco, Chicago, and places like that. I dont think it will do big enough box office in those cities to make it to places like Anchorage, AK or (god forbid) Watertown, NY. I can even remember all of this movie, since I saw it nearly 2 years ago. So maybe if it is a hit, and comes to Alaska, I will see it again. But it wont be the same without being able to talk to Antonio...I mean Tony Shaloub....after the show. [/font]

[font=Arial Black]So thats my celeb story. If youre good, then maybe sometime I will retell the stories about how I met Mark Jackson, Ananda Lewis, David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson....or maybe we could twist Kurt and Nate's arms to tell us the Hanson story again!!!! Actually, lets not twist Nate's arm....it might snap off....[/font]
