Woody Allen's wonderfully neurotic Alvy Singer falls for the equally neurotic Annie Hall and movie history is made. As talk-show host Conan O'Brien put it, no one plays "lovable befuddlement" like Diane Keaton, and no one creates romantic comedies quite like Woody Allen. Existential angst has never been so entertaining. Arguably Allen's best film, "Annie Hall" took home Oscars for Best Picture, Actress, Direction, and Screenplay (cowritten with Marshall Brickman).
Filmmaker Paul Weitz--whose comic explorations have ventured into the synergistic halls of corporate culture ("In Good Company"), the perils of psychological isolationism ("About a Boy") and the vicissitudes of losing one's virginity ("American Pie")--now delivers a comedy yanked from right-now popular culture...where the nation's shrinking attention span is more focused on "what's hot" than on hot-button headlines: "American Dreamz." On the morning of his re-election, the President (Dennis Quaid) decides to read the newspaper for the first time in four years. This starts him down a slippery slope. He begins reading obsessively, reexamining his black and white view of the world, holing up in his bedroom in his pajamas. Frightened by the President's apparent nervous breakdown, his Chief of Staff (Willem Dafoe) pushes him back into the spotlight, booking him as a guest judge on the television ratings juggernaut (and the President's personal fave), the weekly talent show American Dreamz. America can't seem to get enough of American Dreamz, hosted by self-aggrandizing, self-loathing Martin Tweed (Hugh Grant), ever on the lookout for the next insta-celebrity. His latest crop of hopefuls includes Sally (Mandy Moore), a conniving steel magnolia with a devoted, dopey veteran boyfriend (Chris Klein), and Omer, a recent Southern Californian immigrant (who just happens to be a bumbling, show tune singing, would-be terrorist awaiting activation). When both Sally and Omer make it to the final round of Dreamz--where the President will be judging along with Tweed--the stage is set for a show the nation will never forget. The film also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Coolidge, Seth Meyers, John Cho, Judy Greer, and Sam Golzari.
The plan was to spend one night in the abandoned Royal Crescent Hotel, where in 1985, five students were murdered, their killer never found. What was supposed to be just a night of fun, hunting for the victims' bloodstained rooms, suddenly changes when they find a severed hand and awake an evil presence within the hotel. Now they are running for their lives, trying to solve a mystery a hundred years old...and morning is still very far.
Late one night in a working class New Jersey suburb, a bloody woman staggers mute and dazed into the emergency room at the Dempsy Medical Center. After treatment for shock and hysteria, Brenda Martin (Julianne Moore) recounts to Dempsy police detective Lorenzo Council (Samuel L. Jackson) a horrific tale of being carjacked on the isolated strip of undeveloped land that divides Dempsy?s urban housing projects from the blue collar town of Gannon, where she lives. She claims she was forced out of her car by a black man, but during the interrogation Council senses he?s not getting the whole story. Only after hours of questioning does Brenda finally break down and confess that her four-year-old son Cody was asleep in the back seat of the stolen car. Led by activist Karen Collucci (Edie Falco), members of the communities of Dempsy and Gannon unite in a search for the missing child, but the criminal investigation into the alleged kidnapping by a suspect who is presumed to be a local from the projects soon ignites long-simmering racial tensions between the two towns. Based on Richard Price's bestselling novel, the film was directed by Joe Roth and also stars Ron Eldard, William Forsythe, Anthony Mackie, and Aunjanue Ellis.
