Description New York, 1959. Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but now all his shows close on opening night. Things turn around when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. To this end, they produce a musical called Springtime for Hitler written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken. Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct. Finally, they hire as a lead actress the loopy Swedish bombshell Ulla (whose last name has over 15 syllables). As opening night draws near, what can go wrong? Well, there's no accounting for taste...

    They don't have the same charm as Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel. It's just doesn't have the same feel. You know what they say, "If it's not broken, don't fix it."

    I was 10 when I saw this in the theaters. Can't believe they let me in without my mom holding my hand like she had to when we saw the first Harry Potter together. But then a year later, I would accidentally stumble into the state theatre's showing of Kill Bill and remembering Ulla had lost her panties and lipstick and picked up a sword. In hindsight, Kill Bill came out 2 years prior but I didn't start watching rated R movies until I was 11.

    Just Say Love (2009)

    Physical attractions appear to be the obvious explanation for two people to become a pair. But are they really the reflection of something sublime, everlasting or dare we say, spiritual? Do relationships start in the bedroom or in the heart? In this male love story, the bliss described by Joseph Campbell and sages throughout the millennia is a practical option for finding happiness. As the camera delves into the character's minds and actions we find fulfillment on both a physical and spiritual...
