Posted Apr 13, 2002
42% Death to Smoochy (2002) DeVito's SMOOCHY is a funny, though, awkward treatment of a promising satirical subject. Its the kind of film the Bolting Brothers would have done so marvellously in 1965.‐ Black Cat Media
Posted Apr 13, 2002
48% Big Trouble (2002) One of the wackier cinematic translations of Dave Barry's ingenuous wit. Ridiculous characters we all recognize provide mindless, theraputic laughter‐ Black Cat Media
