version of Other Crap in real time, with all the bells and whistles,
An urban school is being sued by the parents of a kid who
graduated without the ability to read or write. The board,
administration and teachers union are trying their best to keep the
teachers from giving honest testimony. Nick Nolte plays one of the
few teachers who still care. He finds himself face-to-face with a
former student, in the person of JoBeth Williams, who worshiped him,
and is now the attorney for the parents.
Teachers, finally available on DVD the 28th of this month, is an
Arthur Hiller comedy that tries to tackle serious subjects through
humor. Some have criticized the film for mixing humor with
serious issues, but that's one of the things I particularly like
about it. This is a serious and memorable indictment of our high
schools that is possibly more true now then it was in 1984, and it
makes all of its points clearly, but entertains in the process. In
that respect, the tone reminds me very much of Hiller's classic,
Hospital, starring George C. Scott.
Hiller assembled a killer cast here, including Nick Nolte, Ralph
Macchio, Laura Dern, JoBeth Williams, Judd Hirsch, Lee Grant, Morgan
Freeman and Crispin Glover. I enjoy every minute of the film,
although I will admit to a weakness for many of the performers.
Macchio and Dern are particularly convincing as students.
This is a high C+.
IMDb readers say 5.6.

Cyborg is a Golan/Globus production ... so give
your brain a rest and soak in the fight scenes. I like this film.
"Latin Lover" is a Peruvian Soap Opera.
You are thinking "What is that doing on Scoopy's site?"
Well it was the first erotic soap opera and the women are incredibly hot. Andrea Montenegro is the lead actress and she is a babe.
Not only that she is a good actress who has done a lot of other work, like most of the actresses from this series.
Oddly enough, their filmographies in the IMDb are incomplete. Andrea has done a lot more work than the listed there,
including the controversial latino movie "Baño de Damas," where she plays a very jealous lesbian.

Ten Eastern European girls, barely past adolescence, take a chance on a better future in Belgium,
even though it involves being bound by a very suspicious contract to men who offer
a glamorous life as dancers, but intend to force them into prostitution.
This is Matrioshki, the crude and horrifying but realistic history of a
handful of girls uprooted from their homes with lies and turned into sex
slaves by ruthless criminals who would not hesitate to kill them. Throughout the 10 episodes of Matrioshki, we will
accompany these young people on their trip towards a hell from which they
may not be able to
Lindsay Lohan's attorney cut a deal with Los Angeles prosecutors for her to
plead guilty or no contest to seven misdemeanors but no felonies. Normally,
that would get her at least four days in jail, but the judge gave her 10 days of
community service and cut that in half, then credited her for one day for the
time she spent when she was arrested, so she'll get one day in jail. And that's
not a 24-hour day: she could conceivably check in just before midnight and out
right after midnight, having served "one day" by spending half an hour in jail.

Wednesday night, Fox debuted "Anchorwoman," a much-ballyhooed new reality show
about what happens when a blonde, busty former model/WWE bimbo who takes over
the newscast at a Tyler, Texas, TV station. The ratings were so dismally small,
it was yanked after one episode. The unaired episodes will be available online
on a service called "Fox On Demand."
