in honor of all those sweaty, surly, hard-working, knife-wielding food whores out there, and the filmmakers brave enough to feature them prominently in their flicks, Scene-Stealers is offering up an arbitrary ranking of the best chefs in motion picture history.
Even more so than usual in a McKay/Ferrell collaboration, the movie feels like string of sketches very loosely tied together — as if the plot only exists to expose how stale these kinds of comedic blueprints are in the first place.
Two new Blu-ray releases: A melancholy Christmas story and another opportunity for Roland Emmerich to blow up the White House.
Prince Avalanche brings together immense talent in all departments, and it is a strong step in the right direction for David Gordon Green. It is a terrific film that will ultimately be seen by very few people, but is well worth your time.
Two very funny comedies with their share of darkness and razor-sharp insight into adult relationships are now out on Blu-ray.

Then in a new, possibly recurring segment called What’s the Big Deal About…?, the guys each share an outsider movie — one that they hate, [...]

Here is Eric’s review of “Dinner For Schmucks” for ABC KTKA-49. You can catch his reviews every Friday night on the 6pm news.
