Commentary: 1986 (a look back)
Featurette: Behind the scenes of Hoot
Matt: Sorry, I didnít.† While it was nice to see a film be pro-environment without being completely anti-corporate, did it really have to be this stupid?† Every adult (save producer/composer Jimmy Buffet) was a complete and total moron!† Undemanding children may love it, though.† A generous two stars
Aron: Neither did I.† Not only is this film stupid, plot wise, itís stupid, film wise!† The director thought that a full moon wasnít enough light for a night time scene, so he flooded one scene with too much light for a bedroom!† What in the blazes did he do that for?† The owls were cute, though.† Another generous two stars.
Average Rating: ** (out of ****)
Regarding Stick It:
Aron: This was a surprisingly fun movie from the writer of Bring it On!† Jeff Bridges was good as a controversial gymnastics coach brought in to train the wild-child of gymnastics.† This look behind the scenes of competitive gymnastics really does deliver the stunts and the laughs.† Three stars.
Matt: If I wanted to see the ďY.M.C.AĒ sequence of Canít Stop the Music again, Iíd have waited for VH-1 Classic to re-air it.† The filmís photographer seemed obsessed with the lower parts of these ladiesí bodies, and not in a good way.† The gymnastics were good, but the dialogue was too bitchy for my tastes.† Zero stars.
Average Rating: *1/2 (out of ****)
Commentary: Twenty years ago, the movie going world was treated to such films as Top Gun, Peggy Sue Got Married, Platoon and Crocodile Dundee.† Aron and Matt took a look back at the year 1986 and made note of what made that year so special.
