In this week’s Movie Beat I review Faster, Burlesque, and Love and Other Drugs.
Dwayne Johnson, The Rock, stars as a guy looking for revenge against Billy Bob Thorton. Maggie Grace is also in this film. He’s avenging the murder of his brother during a bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now he’s out and he’s looking for revenge.
Look, THIS is the kind of movie that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson should be doing! I know that there’s a lot of those cute family comedies that he makes, and I understand there’s an audience for that, but for me, I wanna see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson kicking ass and shooting people.
Christina Aguilera stars as a young woman who’s trying to make her way in the world and she so desperately wants to be a burlesque dancer, as so many young girls do these days. She’s got to strut her stuff for Cher, who’s the queen of burlesque dancers. As an actress, Christina is quite the singer.
Love and Other Drugs:
Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this film. Maggie is the role that Anne Hathaway plays. She’s a free-spirit, doesn’t like to play by the rules, and then she meets her match in Jack Gyllenhaal and they fall hopelessly in love and things happen. Zzzzzz Zzzzzzz Zzzzzz.
She gets naked, so if that’s the kind of thing you like, it might be a reason to let your girlfriend drag you to Love and Other Drugs.
So MY pick this weekend is, Friday night, come see ME and Kevin Smith at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club down at Universal Citywalk. 8pm every Friday night. Come on by! Movies are boring. Live comedy – THAT’S where it’s at!
