"Mad Dogs and Englishmen"
Mad Dogs and Englishmen (1995), according to IMDB, is a Thriller / Drama / Mystery / Romance. I couldn't figure it out either. This UK made film begins by introducing dozens of characters, without explaining who they are and how the relate to each other, the story, or anything else for that matter. This is what I surmised. Liz Hurley is the daughter of an aristocrat whose mother died of an overdose. She is following in Mums footsteps. An American student (C. Thomas Howell), who earns cash as a messenger, starts dating her, and encourages her to get off the drugs. Meanwhile, a police official, who has looked the other way with an upper class drug ring, decides to put them down when he discovers that they have hooked his daughter, and are screwing her as well.
Hurley shows breasts in a overly arty orange colored sex scene. Louise Delamere as the cops daughter shows breasts in a window that her father has under surveillance. IMDb readers have this at 3.4 of 10, which is way to high. The entire film is disjointed, there really isn't any character development and Howell plays the only likable character in the film. As far as the film goes, the only problem with Hurley's addiction is that daddy and boyfriend don't like it. The comments at IMDB are not favorable. Add to all of this a really bad transfer and you are well advised to avoid this film. D-.

The Assault of the Part Nerds 2 (1995)
Has there ever been a movie where the sequel was more
eagerly anticipated than Assault of the Party Nerds? Not even Star
Wars generated that kind of anticipation for the "rest of the
The original Party Nerds was made
for $40,000 in four days, a quickie from the Jim Wynorski - Fred
Olen Ray school of filmmaking, as created and assembled by that school's star
pupil, their hope for the new generation, Richard Gabai.
When I say "created and assembled", I'm not using that
casually. I have not seen that first film, but in the second one, Gabai is the star, director, producer, editor, songwriter, casting
director, cinematographer ... oh, yeah, and his band recorded the
music. Gabai is the Grade-Z Edward Norton - he even resembles him
The economical use of personnel didn't stop at Gabai
himself. The female
lead was the bartender at his favorite watering hole, and had never
worked in a film before. She did OK,
but never worked again. Other non-showbiz buddies rounded out the
cast. Gabai hired Burt Ward (Robin, the Boy Wonder) to be a corporate
bigwig, and Ward showed up with his wife, so Ward's wife in real
life became the bigwig's wife in the script. Actress Tane McClure
also laid down some vocal tracks (her singing is pretty decent!)
There are two conflicts to be resolved in the
script. The Party Nerds are about to be evicted from their frat
house. One of the evil snooty frat boys has now become an evil corporate
exec, and is scheming to steal his father-in-law's company. Gabai,
now graduated from the Party Nerd house and working as a detective,
must keep the evil snobby Bud from getting the company and the frat
Other interesting cast members include Rhonda "Up
All Night" Shear and Arte "Verrrry Interesting" Johnson.
The shooting schedule was doubled to eight days
for the sequel, so you can bet that the production values in #2 are
positively lavish. That might not be so bad, but the DVD is
approximately the same quality as VHS, so it looks even worse than
you might expect.

ESPN picks The Last American Virgin as the most underrated movie
of all time. Unfortunately, the credibility of that claim is
diminished somewhat by the fact that the remaining choices are
either (a) OVERrated, like Saturday Night Fever, or (b) just plain
incompetent. We presume these are either the only movies the
columnist has ever seen, or were generated by random selection.
No, random selection would have to result in a better list.

'Caps and comments by Dann:
"Delta Delta Die!"
This movie requires the viewer to make a choice: do you want a decently done B-movie horror flick, or do you want lots of nudity and some really badly done gore thrown in?
If you made the second choice, this is the movie for you. Lots of nudity, along with one of the most lame, poorly acted movies you'll see in a while. Still, Julie Strain continues to love to show those boobies, and she has some help in this one. The plot is simple: a sorority has a quaint little secret. They're cannibals. House Mother Julie sets a yummy example for her girls as she eats her way through the local male population.
See it with someone you love (to eat :-).

As Scoop pointed out a few weeks ago, "Punch" is a sensitive and well-written comedy/drama which is beautifully acted, and resembles "American Beauty". However, one thing about the film is a little creepy...The writer/director of the film is Sonja's father, Guy Bennett, and he directed the spread-eagle nude scene we see in these 'caps.

HEAT WAVE HITS EUROPE; TEXANS SAY, "CHILL OUT"
Reason #97 Why Germany Never Invaded Texas - A record heat wave in Europe
has politicians demanding action to stop apocalyptic global warming and the
media running stories about people desperately trying to cool off. But
some Texans mocked the Europeans as wimps. The highs reached 86 degrees F.
in Germany, 96 in London and 104 in Paris. Wednesday in Dallas, the high
Texans responded by eating two alarm chili instead of three alarm.
And that's why President Bush makes reporters spend August in Texas.
Germans visit Texas in December and complain when it's 84 degrees.
It was so hot in Paris, Frenchmen were surrendering to the Good Humor
SEAGAL'S PRODUCER CONFESSES
Out For Justice - After months of branding Steven Seagal a "pathological
liar," his former movie producer Julius Nasso struck a deal and pleaded
guilty to teaming up with the Gambino mob to extort money from the action
star. He is expected to serve one year in jail for threatening Seagal's
life if he didn't pay Nasso $150,000 for every movie he made.
He should've been forced to pay that money to the audience.
I knew there HAD to be a reason why they kept making Steven Seagal
He also pleaded guilty to terrorism for unleashing all those Steven
Seagal films on America.
TOO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT BEN AND J-LO!
J-Lo's Just Generally Angry These Days - An Atlanta hotel maid told
Britain's Heat magazine that she mistakenly walked in on Ben Affleck and
Jennifer Lopez and discovered that Ben wears tiny black thong underwear.
She said J-Lo got angry at her, maybe because "she was embarrassed that her
husband-to-be's underwear is more feminine than hers."
J-Lo wears giant grannie-panties.
They actually belong to a stripper, but Ben's been wearing them ever
since J-Lo found them in his car.
After inflicting "Gigli" on us, Ben deserves to have to wear a too-tight
