Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me
My favorite show on NPR is Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, and we attended the live taping of Saturday’s show. The panelists were Charlie Pierce, [...]
Kathy Griffin at the Fox
It’s been almost two years since we last saw her at Touhill, and she’s won a second Emmy since then for her show My Life on the D-List. This is [...]
The Hangover
I don’t go to the movies much (there are three reasons for this), and even when I do, I rarely take the time to write reviews of them anymore (I have [...]
Kathy Griffin is Still Hilarious
Welcome Kathy Griffin fans! I’m not exactly sure why, but ever since I wrote my review of her performance a year ago, she is the number one search [...]
Knocked Up
My expectations for this one might have been higher than usual since I thought The 40-Year-Old Virgin was so good. While writer/director Judd Apatow has [...]
Epic Movie
Never has so much been spent on so little to entertain so few. The budget for this film was certainly epic, so it’s a shame the comedy was so [...]
If you’re a Monty Python fan, you simply cannot miss Spamalot (currently playing a month-long engagement at the Fabulous Fox). The plot follows that [...]
Kathy Griffin is Hilarious
We saw Kathy Griffin tonight at the new Touhill Performing Arts Center at UMSL, and she was her usual hilarious self. And to the audience’s surprise, [...]
This movie was pleasantly surprising. It doesn’t suffer from traileritis, as I had been expecting. Although some of the jokes have been recycled from [...]
The Break Up
Will Vince Vaughn ever tire of the flat, stereotypical characters that he plays? I’ll admit the man has a gift, but I’d just like to see him [...]
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
I’m a big fan of Steve Carrell. Loved him on The Daily Show. I also like Paul Rudd. But, Anchorman being the unwatchable mess that it is, I was a [...]
Wedding Crashers
Thoroughly enjoyable. I haven’t laughed that hard at a movie in a long time. Few movies are this laugh-out-loud hilarious. I’ll have to see it [...]
The Producers
Besides being very funny, The Producers musical (now playing at the Fabulous Fox theater in St. Louis) is visually stunning thanks to some very innovative [...]
The Pacifier
Vin Diesel is following in Ah-nuld’s footsteps, as he makes the leap into comedy. His performance is passable, if implausible. The entire story is [...]
Will Smith does a good job of playing the straight man to Kevin James, although through the magic of flashbacks he does get to cut up a little bit. This is [...]
Team America: World Police
This one wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be — your average episode of South Park has more biting satire. As expected, the music was [...]
Jimmy Fallon probably doesn’t have what it takes to carry a movie. Chris Kattan has discovered this about himself as well, along with a long list of [...]
