Movie Reviews

I'm a dog like the main character
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are some fly sisters in this movie talking some serious yang - especially the booyaah with the perfume allergy. And the girl who "had to run through the bushes in her bra on." She did want it. I give it four stars because nobody ever takes all their clothes off, but I was still interested to the end. the show is funny!. You can buy the bootleg for ten dollars."
An excellent, arty, sex comedy of the 1980s.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film reminds me of John Cassavetes 1959 movie "Shadows" because it is a stylized, B&W, authentic, improvisational look at a middle class, multicultural, bohemian New York subculture - the Long Island neighborhoods of Hempstead, Freeport, and Roosevelt--Howard Stern and Eddie Murphy's hometown. I saw it at the legendary Bleecker Street Cinema in the summer of 1990 and will never forget it. It's got a hip hop soundtrack that mixes heavy metal and strong island underground beats. (I think some of those Tribe-affiliated rappers were involved somehow.) The lead James Haig and (I gather) his brother Kevin Haig are a winning pair, looking for love in all the wrong places and having a hilarious time doing so. The women they encounter are mostly excellent actresses, and make this the absolute opposite of films like "Booty Call." If you grew up in an urban suburb in the late 1980's and like independent films, this one is a must see! I only wish the price were $19.99, because I bought one and have lent it out a dozen times and now I don't think I'm going to get it back. Why isn't it cheaper? So go rent it instead of buying it for $50 (thats a lot of movie tickets)."
