Movie: Land of the Lost

Considering the fact that I never watched the Seventies television show “Land of the Lost,” and adding in the reality that I have never found Will Ferrell particularly funny, it seemed like a lost cause to go and see “Land of the Lost,” his new theatrical spin on that old TV series. [...]

Movie: The Hangover

You know you are really drunk when you try to pull Woody Allen's pants off over his head. You know you are hung over when you have to read the address of the envelope on the dresser to figure out where you are. [...]
