• It's those wacky Vovchenkos, Irina and Marina in the slice-of-Russian-life  film, "4" (Zipped .avis)

  • Amanda Seyfried and Amber Heard  (Zipped .avi) in Alpha Dog  (Movie House Commentary). In case you missed it the other day, here's smokin'-hot Olivia Wilde  the same movie. (Zipped .avi) That Wilde clip seems to have the bottom of the picture cut off, and there's something screwy about the aspect ratio. The DVD will show more of her breasts. It's a good enough scene and she's sexy enough that I expect it to finish in the Top 20 for 2007.

  • Laura Hidalgo in Carambola. (Zipped .avi)  I have no idea what the hell this is, but Diego Luna is in it. He's one of the guys from Y Tu Mama Tambien - not the good looking one (that's Gabriel Garcia Bernal, who is now a star), but the other dude.

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.






Sherrybaby (2006)

SherryBaby (2006) is a first feature from writer/director Laurie Callyer, and another great vehicle for Maggie Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal plays Sherry, just paroled after serving three years for robbery to support her drug habit.  We learn that she grew up with a sexually abusive father, and worked as a stripper at 16.  The father of her baby was also in prison, but escaped and is missing. Her stated goal, to control her life and win her daughter back both physically and emotionally, is a wonderful sentiment, but she is still a flawed character. Meanwhile, her brother and sister-in-law have been raising her daughter for three years, and do not want to let go.

Sherry is not an altogether unsympathetic character, but you want to reach through the screen and slap her upside the head for some of her choices. She is quick to give sexual favors to get her way, such as giving a blow job for a shot at a job she wants. She has anger issues. It is clear that she really wants to get involved in drugs again. She is also drinking.  She clearly thinks that wanting things should be enough to get them.  True to real life, the film ends without Sherry reaching redemption, although she is taking a step on the right path.

Maggie Gyllenhaal not only delivers a wonderful performance, but hauls out her breasts and buns several times. You will want to see this for the nudity and an excellent performance by Gyllenhaal, but it is not a feel-good film.

  • Critical response was very good, and both Callyer and Maggie Gyllenhaal were nominated for many awards, winning a few
  • IMDb readers say 6.1
  • It didn't do well in the box office.
  • It's a high C on our scale.

Time Machine travel today for these caps of Jamie Lee Curtis in 1983's "Trading Places."

It seems as you get older time goes so quickly. It seems just like yesterday that a hot Jamie was getting topless in this hilarious movie.
