I've seen a lot of teenage movies, and this was the best. It's my new favorite movie. There are some really funny parts in this film and the whole thing is done really well. It's the best movie that nobody has seen. Sure some of the sexual references are numerous and sometimes disturbing, but it all adds to the fantastic ambiance. Jocks really are jerks, as shown, and somehow they always seem to get the girls. Kids with thick framed glasses are coming back and we want the girls, even if we have to spend months living on their front yards. This movie is just too good

3-0 out of 5 stars a refreshingly honest teen comedy
I hate to bring up such manipulative teen romantic comedies as "10 things I hate about you", "She's all that", "Varsity Blues", "Down to you", "Boys and Girls", "Loser", and any other movie starring Freddie Prinze Jr that I have forgotten, but those films are under the impression that everyone in High School is a model, everyone drives around in sports cars, everyone carries a cell phone, and everyone speaks as if just out of Shakespearean times. "8 days a week", does not. Our hero is NOT beautiful, in fact, he is a genuine loser. Of course Keri Russell is beautiful, but yet she is not the everyday person, she is the object of the loser's affection. What I really liked about this movie is it's honesty in proving that nice guys do finish last. Even though it was a bit raunchy that doesn't detract from the movies charm and honesty about life and teenage love. Even though this film had only a limited theatrical release and was essentially straight to video with no big Hollywood models/actors, this proves to be the most genuinly sweet and honest teen romance out there.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sigh
It was ok, but that was about it. As I think many people have said, it's for those who really like Keri Russel, but didn't test
her acting ability at all.

Oh, and it can be bought on DVD out of the UK at blackstar, and
maybe amazon.co.uk for those of you with multizoning.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must See
You may overlook this film, thinking that it's your average everyday teen flick..... If you pass up a chance to watch "8 Days a Week", you are doing yourself a huge injustice. Not only is it brimming over with completely original and witty humor, it offers a different perspective on the people who surround us everyday, making you think twice before judging another's actions. Wonderfully written and executed, "8 Days a Week" is a must see for all ages.

5-0 out of 5 stars NAMI Media Award Winner
NAMI: The Nation's Voice on Mental Illness (www.nami.org) honored this movie with a 2001 Outstanding Media Award. it's excellent. A non-stereotyped portrayal of a person with mental illness and an at times difficult, but loving relationship with her sister. A true story. Book by the same name. It both opens minds and entertains. Great acting by Kathy Bates: an informative contrast to her role in the movie Misery.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really touching story.
A boy and his elder sister are left by their mother to their grandparents. The boy's name? It's the name of the movie itself. I really liked the parts with the grandpa taking pictures of everyone. I also liked the part when Cooper, a friend of Journey's, comes through the window with his baby brother. As well as the part when Grandpa sings "Trot trot to Boston" to Cooper's little brother. What else happens? You'll have to watch it yourself. I recommend it anyone who like touching stories. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It's The Feel Bad Movie Of The Year!
Dustin Hoffman in "Rain Man," Tom Hanks in "Forrest Gump" and Russell Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" brilliantly portrayed mentally challenged characters, and each film won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture. In this movie, Jim Belushi plays Homer, a mildly retarded man. He is portrayed as a pathetic caricature, not as a realistic character. Whoopie Goldberg plays Eddie, a patient that escaped from a mental institution, who is dying from an inoperable brain tumor. Spouting profanities and shooting clerks dead in a series of robberies, Eddie is one of the most unlikable characters ever created. Most disappointing of all, blonde bombshell Angelyne is only seen in a cameo lasting a few seconds. Jim Belushi and Whoopie Goldberg have no chemistry together, and their characters are too mismatched to make their growing friendship believable. This movie fails to create an emotional bond between the viewer and the characters. When Eddie is shot dead, the only thing I felt was relief, because I knew this film was finally coming to an end. "Homer And Eddie" should have won the Razzie Award for Worst Motion Picture Of The Year.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's NOT a comedy movie !
Don't get mistaken. It is NOT a comedy movie. Rather a road movie with a bitter taste to it. As Whoopie Goldberg plays a vagrant with a tumor in her head which is slowly killing her and Belushi plays a retard who's in search of his parents who have left him behind in hospital 14 years ago.

This is rather a drama and shows superior acting skills by both main characters. Definitely worth an oscar (but never nominated). So don't go thinking this is a family movie that you can watch during christmas eve !! It is NOT.

5-0 out of 5 stars A comedy that leaves you in suspense!
Jennifer Aniston is the bright sunshine girl who really acted well in this flick. It's neither typical date movie nor a romantic comedy. It's really funny and keeps you in suspense. This is Aniston's best work at the movies! It's a great cast ensemble and is award-worthy. It's a different comedy and has one of the week's highest screen average, 14k. It's an emotional feature where you'd see Aniston in a completely different role and a completely different attitude that you'd see her with in "Friends"! The movie's worth a watch!

The movie revolves around Justine (Aniston) who plays a surly worker at Retail Rodeo. She's stressed out and sick of her pot-smoking husband. Soon she meets a fellow worker at Retail Rodeo who is in a worse place than she's in. They soon fall in love but can't seem to keep it a secret. Now she has lots of decisions to make!

The movie wasn't released on a lot of theatres but is quite good and worth checking out!

2-0 out of 5 stars The Not So Good Girl
The Good Girl had gotten some positive buzz as it made its theatrical run last year, so I was bit curious to see what it was all about, and if actress Jennifer Aniston could pull off a largely dramatic role..Let's just say I was surprised.

Justine (Aniston) is unhappy with her life. She has a thankless husband, (John C. Reilly) and a boring job at the Retail Rodeo, at the cosmetics counter. She desperately wants a change. Enter co-worker Holden Worther (Jake Gyllenhaal), an introspective younger man, who finds himself attracted to Justine. Eventually, they fall in love, and start having an affair with each other. Holden asks her to run away with her, after he decides to steal a large sum of cash, from the store's safe. Directed by Miguel Arteta, the film boasts good performances from the cast, particularly from Aniston, who tries very hard to make you forget the Rachel character she plays on Friends. As for Jake Gyllenhaal, his work is good too, but he seems to employ the same "loner" motif that he used for Donnie Darko for this role as well. Even though the acting in the movie was solid, to be sure, none of it really "wowed" me that much. Having said that, I think that the film's biggest flaw lies in the script. Written by Mike White, the story is very predictible, and the characters are, (for the most part) as well. I could see the film's biggest twists from a mile away. Considering all the aforementioned buzz, I guess I thought it might be a better film.

The DVD includes just a handfull of exrtas. The first of 2 commentary tracks with Arteta and White is pretty good The two men present the making of the film in an informative way. For her part though, Aniston's participation on the second track seemed very limited, which is a letdown, given that she plays the main character in the film. In fact, her comments are less about what it was like to play Justine, and more about her fellow actors instead-I was hoping that she would talk about the whole experience. There are 9 deleted scenes that were wisely left on the cutting room floor. As for the "don't blink or you'll miss it" alternate ending, it's so so brief, you may have to play it twice to "get it". Finally viewers get a 2 and half minute blooper reel (what?? No theatrical trailer??) that isn't all that funny. The DVD allows you to watch the film in either the widescreen or full screen. A disappointment all the way around.

4-0 out of 5 stars intriguing start descends into formulaic
This movie starts out with an intriguing situation. Jennifer Aniston plays a depressed Retail Rodeo employee with a pig of a husband. She plays the role convincingly, making viewers feel the world of a small-town Texas woman.

When she meets a new employee, a disturbed but more intellectual young man, she thinks she's found an escape from her daily drudgery.

From this point on, events spiral downhill and the movie becomes disappointingly predictable. The element of surprise is lost and viewers are taken on a formulaic ride where predictable consequences come from foreseen actions.

It's not a bad movie to watch on those nights when you want something light, just don't expect surprises.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Really Disturbing Film
I have read all the other reviews for this movie and I am truly very surprised with how many people enjoyed it. I tried, really, to like this movie, but it is one movie that I truly despise. The story line in itself is unoriginal and also stupid. A woman is having a really bad life, so she starts trying to fix it, no big deal, maybe even intersting. But then her way of "fixing" it is to be in an affair with a strange pyscotic younger man. Not exactly what I think would qualify as fixing. This movie did not hold my attention and to this day I am sorry for the time that I will never get back that was spent watching that movie.
On the plus side, the acting from Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal is very well done. That is the only plus side for the entire movie. Do yourself a favor and watch something you won't regret later, "Office Space" or "The Day After Tomorrow" if you're stuck on the actors, perhaps. Both of those movies are signicantly better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Un-Rachel Jennifer: Dark, Unpredictable Comedy about Despair
Can Jennifer Aniston do anyting better than "Rachel" after the successful TV drama that went on very long (or too long)? "The Good Girl" is the answer. Yes, she can, and in a surprising way.

Justine (Aniston) is working at a mini-mart in Nowhereville, Texas, completely dissatisfied with the humdrum life with her pot-smoking husband (John C. Reiley), who just doesn't care anything about his life. Her work is boring, always in a drab uniform which makes eveything in her life quite hopeless.

But one day, she notices that a young boy working in the same shop is interested in her. She is attracted to this boy (Jake Gyllenhaal, "Donnie Darko") who has, however, a slightly troublesome tendency. He calls himself "Holden" because, yes, he identified himself with that anti-hero of "Catcher in the Rye," and like Holden, this boy perhaps thinks too much.

Now, Justine thinks: "Could this strange boy is the last and only help offered to her?" Can she escape from the dull reality of life? And if escape, how and where? It's the same case as Madame Bovary, whose name is briefly referred to in the film.

"The Good Girl," written by Mike White (who wrote alarmingly unique "Chuck and Buck"), follows the life of Justine with a wry humor. Written with skewed perspectives, the film is never predictable, giving us a few surprising moments and one very serious decision Justine has to make. It is effectively supported by original characters played by Tim Blake Nelson, Zooey Deschanel, Deborah Rush, and Mike White himself as church-going guard.

Its dark humor is not for everybody's taste, and the undercurrent statement on life is often disturbing. But Jennifer Aniston's acting as Justine is strong (though you may still see something of Rachel in her.) The film, in its own quiet way, will make you grin, and then think ... think particularly about life as it is, not as it should be. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars ONE part in this movie is at least OKAY, if not good!
I think this was an okay movie (maybe this is because I never saw the first one or the second one). I thought it was really, really stupid, but my friend and I liked the pizza singing part--we kept cracking up every few seconds. The movie had very cheesy effects, bad actors, and at some parts you are just disgusted by how bad a movie can be. Since I'm not the type of person that would walk away from a bad movie (I stuck through half of "Leatherface" before escaping that stupid movie by doing homework) I stuck through the end, and there are two good parts (one is the pizza). The second is very touching, when the wife remembers her husband with the projector thingy that was spilling memories out to her. That part was good too, but the rest of the movie just was plain boring, bad, and awful. Make sure that if you DO get this movie you throw it away after watching the pizza singing part because the rest is crap and will spoil your appetite if your hungry (for other reasons besides the pizza).

1-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES EVER MADE...AWFUL!!!
"House" was a great film. I have liked it ever since I saw it on HBO in 1987. I did not like the second one as much, but it was okay, not great. But THIS, oh my god, I could not believe it...absolutely NOTHING makes sense in this movie. It was supposed to be a continuation of the original, yet those who have seen the original will be so confused, William Katt is back, but what happened to his wife Sandy and his son Jimmy he was so desperate to find? Why isn't there anything about his horror novelist career? And why is this a beat up house in an abadoned desert like area, when in the original it was a victorian mansion, looking very rich and high class both on the outside and the inside? Acting is horrible, the script is one of the worst ever written, and one stupid scene after another make this completely unbearable to watch. After the scene with the singing pizza, it was no doubt this was one of the worst films of all time. Someone would have to pay me a lot to watch this again. Stay away AT ALL COSTS-- even Jan De Bont's lame "The Haunting" was better than this garbage.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fair!
This movie I would have to say is AOK. I still am a very big fan of the origanal. The 2nd one I would say didn't make that much cence. Although I still loved the 2nd. Some of you might wonder what happend to House 3. Well I hears from Joe Bob Riggs on monstervision, that directors thought the movie (which was called house 3 in Europe i think)is called The Horror Show in the United States. Check it put I think you would really enjoy it.

This movie is the best out of all the kicboxers. The fights look real and Sasha Mitchell looks damn hot! I think it is a bit hard to understand what happened to Kurt and Eric in the start, but by the end of the movie, you know what is happening. Great movie, you gotta see it for yourself!

4-0 out of 5 stars Saturday the 14th
Unlike some of extrodinarily expensive spoofs of today that ganish very few to no laughs, and can only be seen by (and basically understood by) the adult population, this movie was really enjoyable. Sure the movie may look like a low budget never was, but it was one of the more honest movies of its day. This movie was designed to be fun (even suitable for the whole family), not to make millions and bore the audience with site gags and sexually lude or crude jokes (that only the person who wrote the movie understands) that have been used time and time again. I think that the actors played their parts very well, and some of the monster designs were amusing. People who only like movies with big budget special effects, and hughely popular stars will probably not enjoy this movie. But for someone who just wants an honest movie with laugh and (believe it or not) an understandable (yet silly) plot will enjoy this movie.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia? Not bloody likely.
Saturday the 14th (Howard R. Cohen, 1981)

Veteran Hollywood screenwriter Howard Cohen (Deathstalker, Stryker, Vampire Nurses, and-- I'm not kidding-- Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealers) tookhis first whack at directing with this insanely silly send-up of seventies horror flicks. How a guy who writes B-grade fantasy and softcore flicks managed to assemble the cast he got for this film is beyond me, but to his credit, the cast did manage to pull off something that didn't completely wreck their careers.

Waldemar (veteran character actor Jeffrey Tambor, in his second big-screen role) and Yolanda (the late Nancy Andrews, in her last film role) are very interested in buying a dilapidated old house. Problem is, its owner has just died and left it, in his will, to an all-American family: father John (Richard Benjamin, recently seen in the TNT production of The Goodbye Girl), mother Mary (seventies film and TV staple Paula Prentiss), nubile daughter Debbie (Kari Michaelsen of Gimme a Break!), and credulous kid brother Billy (Kevin Brando, for a while the voice of Charlie Brown). Billy finds the book Waldemar and Yolanda are after, opens and reads it, and lets out all manner of evil creatures, making no one happy. John hires an exterminator to get rid of some pests, and finds himself stuck with Van Helsing (the late, great Severn Darden), an exterminator who is more than he appears to be...

yeah, okay, it's funny. Kind of. In the same incredibly stupid way that Dark Star is funny, but without the ability and talent both in front of and behind the camera to be found in Dark Star. (And without the beach ball with claws, an unforgivable omission.) Kari Michaelsen's obligatory "nubile daughter taking a bath" scene is worth the price of admission, if you're into that sort of thing, and there are a few chuckles here and there. But for the most part, it kicked my nostalgia trip between the legs a few times. This one just plain doesn't hold up well, and I wonder what I was thinking back in the day when I watched it about a hundred times on HBO. (No, I know what I was thinking. Kari Michaelsen taking a bath.) **

4-0 out of 5 stars I Hope the DVD is Available in Widescreen!
I saw Sautrday the 14th when I was a teen, I'm not sure though if I saw it in a movie theater or on cable on a movie channel. This was a funny movie that spoofed horror movies. Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss who are married in real life play a couple who move with their son Billy and daughter Debbie into a haunted house. The movie also stars Jeffrey Tambor (Hill Street Blues) as a vampire and Kari Michaelson as Debbie. Kari is best known for playing Katie in the Nell Carter sitcom Gimme a Break. I would like to have this movie on DVD but there isn't really any info on if it's available in widescreen, I would hate to buy it and find out it's an edited pan and scan DVD.

5-0 out of 5 stars This was a great movie
I first watched this movie when i was about 5. My mom taped it and i have shown it to everyone. I found the movie hilarious. The parents are so dumb to mistake bats for owls. I love it when the dad finds eyeballs in his coffee. The movie just makes fun of horror movies. Niave people inherit a house with a cursed book which releases monsters into the house to destroy the world. It is very entertaining and you will definitely laugh somewhere in the movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars War! Famine! Hate! -- Those we've got...
Not scary at all, but quite fun, Saturday the 14th includes ALL the cliches, from the family (a banal, witty father, an equally banal Mrs. Cleaver mother, a cute teenaged daughter who is just destined for mauling, and a super-smart 10-year-old son) to their newly inherited "house with a curse". The house is as much fun to watch as the characters living in it, with moving-eye portraits, sentient (and carnivorous) bookcases, candles that mysteriously light themselves when light switches are thrown, and a Dark-Shadows-meets-Brady-Bunch decorating scheme.

A pair of gothy-looking married vampires are trying desperately to get into the house to retrieve a book, which the boy inadvertently opens to release many evil things into the world. A nutcase exterminator (hired to get bats out of the belfry) seeks to find the book as well, and to foil the vampires. Somewhere along the way there's a house-warming party with a houseful of detestable guests (and the daughter wears a VERY 80s Gunne Sax dress, a cute touch), most of whom deserve everything that happens to them.

The monsters are of the latex suit variety and there's mild violence, but nothing here is meant to terrify. It is a parody, short and sweet, with many fun little comedic touches (the TV *only* gets "The Twilight Zone"). Everything you think will happen does happen, right down to the bathtub scene with the teenaged daughter. The acting isn't fabulous, but the casting is good. I'm still trying to figure out if that pizza delivery boy is played by Adam Sandler in a pseudonym. Definitely this is a fun movie to have, and I've already worn out my VHS edition, which is why I've gotten a DVD edition. Incidentally, the DVD includes a few little goodies -- bios of some of the actors and staff (the producer's bio is a hoot -- it's HUMONGOUS), and trailers of various movies the same studio has done including this one. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars ONE part in this movie is at least OKAY, if not good!
I think this was an okay movie (maybe this is because I never saw the first one or the second one). I thought it was really, really stupid, but my friend and I liked the pizza singing part--we kept cracking up every few seconds. The movie had very cheesy effects, bad actors, and at some parts you are just disgusted by how bad a movie can be. Since I'm not the type of person that would walk away from a bad movie (I stuck through half of "Leatherface" before escaping that stupid movie by doing homework) I stuck through the end, and there are two good parts (one is the pizza). The second is very touching, when the wife remembers her husband with the projector thingy that was spilling memories out to her. That part was good too, but the rest of the movie just was plain boring, bad, and awful. Make sure that if you DO get this movie you throw it away after watching the pizza singing part because the rest is crap and will spoil your appetite if your hungry (for other reasons besides the pizza).

1-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES EVER MADE...AWFUL!!!
"House" was a great film. I have liked it ever since I saw it on HBO in 1987. I did not like the second one as much, but it was okay, not great. But THIS, oh my god, I could not believe it...absolutely NOTHING makes sense in this movie. It was supposed to be a continuation of the original, yet those who have seen the original will be so confused, William Katt is back, but what happened to his wife Sandy and his son Jimmy he was so desperate to find? Why isn't there anything about his horror novelist career? And why is this a beat up house in an abadoned desert like area, when in the original it was a victorian mansion, looking very rich and high class both on the outside and the inside? Acting is horrible, the script is one of the worst ever written, and one stupid scene after another make this completely unbearable to watch. After the scene with the singing pizza, it was no doubt this was one of the worst films of all time. Someone would have to pay me a lot to watch this again. Stay away AT ALL COSTS-- even Jan De Bont's lame "The Haunting" was better than this garbage.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fair!
This movie I would have to say is AOK. I still am a very big fan of the origanal. The 2nd one I would say didn't make that much cence. Although I still loved the 2nd. Some of you might wonder what happend to House 3. Well I hears from Joe Bob Riggs on monstervision, that directors thought the movie (which was called house 3 in Europe i think)is called The Horror Show in the United States. Check it put I think you would really enjoy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars not that bad
this is not that bad of a film, it could use a little more orginallity or add something new that would not stray from the original movie. but still is enjoyable to watch ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars MENNO'S MINDLESS
This is another one of those future societies where man's quest for self satisfaction is the major motivator of daily living. Too bad director Jon Kroll didn't enliven it with some good acting or great action scenes. As it is, we get Bruce Campbell for a few minutes as an underground rebel leader who when fatally shot downloads his brain into a computer. Nerdy computer geek Bill Campbell is then forced by the tough Stephanie Romanov to download Bruce's brain into his own so he can find out what it is that Brucie knew about an impending computer disaster. Corbin Bernsen (gleefully vile as usual) is an evil guy who is running for President and has decided to use the Resort to influence votes.
The acting is negligible to say the least and the pace is snail-like at best.
Could have been better, but no cigar this time!

2-0 out of 5 stars Too much Bill, not enough Bruce...
I got this movie for two reasons: 1. It's being sold in Russia on the black market as "The Matrix 2." 2. It has Bruce Campbell in it. Unfortunately, Bruce isn't in the movie for long, as he is killed off early in the picture. The rest of the film is pretty bad, being your typical DTV picture, but there are some good qualities to it. Michael Dorn is good as Menno's best friend, and there is some good humor. But most of the movie is very silly with terrible acting and pretty subpar action. I guess if you like "Johnny Mnemonic," you'll like this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars good story and solid actors, but it is kinda low budget
there are some good qualities to this movie, it fits the genre of a futuristic sci-fi where a powerful G-man is vying for the presidency in a fascist/democratic America. But it does fail in many areas, like action and budget. The language and acting is really good though, and Corbin Bernsen made a great bad guy. The real reason to watch this movie though is Stephanie Romanov, no bouncing action, but what a fox.

4-0 out of 5 stars Menno's Mind
I finally feel as though there are people out there making films for the sake of making a films and not trying to recreate film making history. Everyone seems to think that for a movie to be entertaining and good, it has to be a big-budget blockbuster type film. Fortunately, the maker's of Menno's Mind decided to make a film for the sake of making a film. I first rented this film and have since purchased it. It's fun to watch and enjoyable to watch again. Bravo to it's writer, director and all it's cast. Thanks for the entertainment!

2-0 out of 5 stars disapointing
I got this video and was excited by the possible plot, and bruce cambell is usually good. To cut to the chase this is dissapointing. It has a relative good idea, but the script is one-dimensional at best. The acting it sub par, the director never even gave bruce a chance to be bruce. Not to say this was a horrible film, it was ok, for a late night showtime film, or something. I wouldn't recommend it unless it's on television, or a movie channel, and there's nothing else on. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A comedy that leaves you in suspense!
Jennifer Aniston is the bright sunshine girl who really acted well in this flick. It's neither typical date movie nor a romantic comedy. It's really funny and keeps you in suspense. This is Aniston's best work at the movies! It's a great cast ensemble and is award-worthy. It's a different comedy and has one of the week's highest screen average, 14k. It's an emotional feature where you'd see Aniston in a completely different role and a completely different attitude that you'd see her with in "Friends"! The movie's worth a watch!

The movie revolves around Justine (Aniston) who plays a surly worker at Retail Rodeo. She's stressed out and sick of her pot-smoking husband. Soon she meets a fellow worker at Retail Rodeo who is in a worse place than she's in. They soon fall in love but can't seem to keep it a secret. Now she has lots of decisions to make!

The movie wasn't released on a lot of theatres but is quite good and worth checking out!

2-0 out of 5 stars The Not So Good Girl
The Good Girl had gotten some positive buzz as it made its theatrical run last year, so I was bit curious to see what it was all about, and if actress Jennifer Aniston could pull off a largely dramatic role..Let's just say I was surprised.

Justine (Aniston) is unhappy with her life. She has a thankless husband, (John C. Reilly) and a boring job at the Retail Rodeo, at the cosmetics counter. She desperately wants a change. Enter co-worker Holden Worther (Jake Gyllenhaal), an introspective younger man, who finds himself attracted to Justine. Eventually, they fall in love, and start having an affair with each other. Holden asks her to run away with her, after he decides to steal a large sum of cash, from the store's safe. Directed by Miguel Arteta, the film boasts good performances from the cast, particularly from Aniston, who tries very hard to make you forget the Rachel character she plays on Friends. As for Jake Gyllenhaal, his work is good too, but he seems to employ the same "loner" motif that he used for Donnie Darko for this role as well. Even though the acting in the movie was solid, to be sure, none of it really "wowed" me that much. Having said that, I think that the film's biggest flaw lies in the script. Written by Mike White, the story is very predictible, and the characters are, (for the most part) as well. I could see the film's biggest twists from a mile away. Considering all the aforementioned buzz, I guess I thought it might be a better film.

The DVD includes just a handfull of exrtas. The first of 2 commentary tracks with Arteta and White is pretty good The two men present the making of the film in an informative way. For her part though, Aniston's participation on the second track seemed very limited, which is a letdown, given that she plays the main character in the film. In fact, her comments are less about what it was like to play Justine, and more about her fellow actors instead-I was hoping that she would talk about the whole experience. There are 9 deleted scenes that were wisely left on the cutting room floor. As for the "don't blink or you'll miss it" alternate ending, it's so so brief, you may have to play it twice to "get it". Finally viewers get a 2 and half minute blooper reel (what?? No theatrical trailer??) that isn't all that funny. The DVD allows you to watch the film in either the widescreen or full screen. A disappointment all the way around.

4-0 out of 5 stars intriguing start descends into formulaic
This movie starts out with an intriguing situation. Jennifer Aniston plays a depressed Retail Rodeo employee with a pig of a husband. She plays the role convincingly, making viewers feel the world of a small-town Texas woman.

When she meets a new employee, a disturbed but more intellectual young man, she thinks she's found an escape from her daily drudgery.

From this point on, events spiral downhill and the movie becomes disappointingly predictable. The element of surprise is lost and viewers are taken on a formulaic ride where predictable consequences come from foreseen actions.

It's not a bad movie to watch on those nights when you want something light, just don't expect surprises.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Really Disturbing Film
I have read all the other reviews for this movie and I am truly very surprised with how many people enjoyed it. I tried, really, to like this movie, but it is one movie that I truly despise. The story line in itself is unoriginal and also stupid. A woman is having a really bad life, so she starts trying to fix it, no big deal, maybe even intersting. But then her way of "fixing" it is to be in an affair with a strange pyscotic younger man. Not exactly what I think would qualify as fixing. This movie did not hold my attention and to this day I am sorry for the time that I will never get back that was spent watching that movie.
On the plus side, the acting from Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal is very well done. That is the only plus side for the entire movie. Do yourself a favor and watch something you won't regret later, "Office Space" or "The Day After Tomorrow" if you're stuck on the actors, perhaps. Both of those movies are signicantly better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Un-Rachel Jennifer: Dark, Unpredictable Comedy about Despair
Can Jennifer Aniston do anyting better than "Rachel" after the successful TV drama that went on very long (or too long)? "The Good Girl" is the answer. Yes, she can, and in a surprising way.

Justine (Aniston) is working at a mini-mart in Nowhereville, Texas, completely dissatisfied with the humdrum life with her pot-smoking husband (John C. Reiley), who just doesn't care anything about his life. Her work is boring, always in a drab uniform which makes eveything in her life quite hopeless.

But one day, she notices that a young boy working in the same shop is interested in her. She is attracted to this boy (Jake Gyllenhaal, "Donnie Darko") who has, however, a slightly troublesome tendency. He calls himself "Holden" because, yes, he identified himself with that anti-hero of "Catcher in the Rye," and like Holden, this boy perhaps thinks too much.

Now, Justine thinks: "Could this strange boy is the last and only help offered to her?" Can she escape from the dull reality of life? And if escape, how and where? It's the same case as Madame Bovary, whose name is briefly referred to in the film.

"The Good Girl," written by Mike White (who wrote alarmingly unique "Chuck and Buck"), follows the life of Justine with a wry humor. Written with skewed perspectives, the film is never predictable, giving us a few surprising moments and one very serious decision Justine has to make. It is effectively supported by original characters played by Tim Blake Nelson, Zooey Deschanel, Deborah Rush, and Mike White himself as church-going guard.

Its dark humor is not for everybody's taste, and the undercurrent statement on life is often disturbing. But Jennifer Aniston's acting as Justine is strong (though you may still see something of Rachel in her.) The film, in its own quiet way, will make you grin, and then think ... think particularly about life as it is, not as it should be. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Orignal is better!
this movie is ok but it doesnt top the orignal, jean claude van damme is the best actor and he destroys Sasha Mitchell. Sasha Mitchell doesnt come close to the kind of actor jean claude van damme is. I say get the first one, its so much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars A movie worth watching!
This movie is the best out of all the kicboxers. The fights look real and Sasha Mitchell looks damn hot! I think it is a bit hard to understand what happened to Kurt and Eric in the start, but by the end of the movie, you know what is happening. Great movie, you gotta see it for yourself!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good,but not better than the original
This was a good sequel,but not better than the first one.He plays Kurts brother and fights Tong Po.Van Damne is way better though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kickboxer Goes On Without Van Damme For The Better
Kickboxer 2 The Road Back Deals With David Sloan. The brother of Kurt & Eric Sloan David is running his brothers kickboxer school tung po killed off van damme's charcter for the first kickboxer I say good sasha mitchell is a lot better tung po can only regain his honor by fighting david since kurt is dead so david vs. tung po with glue and glass is a bloody battle great movie the best in the series.

5-0 out of 5 stars KICKBOXER 2 ROCKS!!!
This movie is just as good as the first. It picks up where the first one left off. Sasha Mitchell is great as David Sloan.

5-0 out of 5 stars BORN GOOD!
This film impressed me with the tense plot and excellent acting from a relatively unknown cast. Corey Feldman is hysterical. The squemish might want to fast-forward through a disturbing scene where a woman gets her finger chopped in a paper cutter! Overall, I really enjoyed this picture.

5-0 out of 5 stars ALL GOOD!
I really enjoyed watching this video. The actors were all really strong. I was surprised how good Corey Feldman is, and I haven't liked him since "Stand By Me." This picture deals with teens who rob a bank and essentially every thing that can go wrong does. The paper cutter scene is awesome...worthy of Hitchcock himself. "Born Bad" is "all good."

5-0 out of 5 stars Darn GOOD!
Corey Feldman is hilarious in this movie. I thought that all the clever plot twists and turns were great. The last half hour is intense. Although I didn't recognize some of the actors, I thought they all did a really good job. Definitely worth seeing!

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
I think this action-drama was GREAT!
At the end its really tense and I just shaked the last 15 minutes. Even if the end wasnt as good as you would like, it was still wort seeing it.
And I think the actors did a great job, even if they warent famous.

5-0 out of 5 stars Born Bad is all good
Sure to be a cult classic! This gripping teen crime drama got so intense at one point that my girlfriend squeezed the circulation out of my hand! Corey Feldman is funnier than I have ever seen him. The non-stop tension makes this picture worth buying on DVD. You will thank me later. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It's The Feel Bad Movie Of The Year!
Dustin Hoffman in "Rain Man," Tom Hanks in "Forrest Gump" and Russell Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" brilliantly portrayed mentally challenged characters, and each film won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture. In this movie, Jim Belushi plays Homer, a mildly retarded man. He is portrayed as a pathetic caricature, not as a realistic character. Whoopie Goldberg plays Eddie, a patient that escaped from a mental institution, who is dying from an inoperable brain tumor. Spouting profanities and shooting clerks dead in a series of robberies, Eddie is one of the most unlikable characters ever created. Most disappointing of all, blonde bombshell Angelyne is only seen in a cameo lasting a few seconds. Jim Belushi and Whoopie Goldberg have no chemistry together, and their characters are too mismatched to make their growing friendship believable. This movie fails to create an emotional bond between the viewer and the characters. When Eddie is shot dead, the only thing I felt was relief, because I knew this film was finally coming to an end. "Homer And Eddie" should have won the Razzie Award for Worst Motion Picture Of The Year.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's NOT a comedy movie !
Don't get mistaken. It is NOT a comedy movie. Rather a road movie with a bitter taste to it. As Whoopie Goldberg plays a vagrant with a tumor in her head which is slowly killing her and Belushi plays a retard who's in search of his parents who have left him behind in hospital 14 years ago.

This is rather a drama and shows superior acting skills by both main characters. Definitely worth an oscar (but never nominated). So don't go thinking this is a family movie that you can watch during christmas eve !! It is NOT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie!!
If you like James Belushi and Whoopi Goldberg then you'll love this comedy that's about 2 travelers.It's a must see!! ... Read more
