"With the preordained outcome of telegraphed in its opening scene, all that's left to enjoy of this mean-spirited melodrama, are politically-incorrect laughs at the expense of a bizarre cross-section of California kooks."

The Seat Filler (2004)

"Females take it on the chin with the description of one as "a snaggle-toothed crack-head with four baby-daddies." Worse, it is suggested to the protagonist that dating a prostitute would be a step up for him. Sorry, no redeeming qualities."

Timbuktoubab (2005)

"An entertaining and informative concert film served up by a quartet of uncomplicated troubadours armed only with their voices and primitive acoustic instruments, augmented by just the right mix of sand dunes, desertscapes and childlike silliness."
