"Delta Delta Die!"

Delta Delta Die! (2003) day two. Tonight, veritable plethora of images of Julie Strain, some from the film, much more from two lengthy bonus features. The first has her taking a bath, and includes a little masturbation, then cuts to her in the shower, shampooing and pressing her most interesting body parts against the clear glass door. The second feature was shot as a montage of her grinding the "meat,: making sausage, etc. After they shot this lengthy footage, they realized that there was nothing in the script requiring, so saved it for the DVD, although they did put a very short version of it in a dream sequence.

The feature length commentary team includes Julie, who was absolutely charming, as she has been every time I have heard her out of character. She joked about her implants, admitted that she normally does not work real hard at her acting, figuring that that is not what people expect from her in a film, but that she worked harder on this one as the rest of the cast was so good. Her effort shows, as this was possibly her best performance.

The plot pits her and the rest of the sorority against a sharp male student who figures out what is going on at Delta Delta Pie, and against her former best friend and co-founder of the sorority chapter, Brinke Stevens. Brinke keeps her clothes on, but it is the first time, I believe, that these B move superstars have appeared together.

IMDB readers have this at 5.2 of 10, but with very few votes. Most of the comments characterize it as an enjoyable cheese fest with plenty of nudity. This is an offbeat offering, but, with all the special features, is a good entertainment value, if this is the sort of thing you find entertaining. C.

    Something's Gotta Give (2003)

    Unlike all the over-touted serious films of the past month or so, this is the type of film that Hollywood knows how to make. The studios should leave the suicide and dead children movies to the indies and Europeans, and deliver the escapist material that made Hollywood the dream factory in the first place.

    It is a romantic comedy, not entirely generated by probable circumstances, but pulled off with charm and panache.

    Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton play two accomplished professionals, a record producer and a playwright respectively, who meet when Nicholson shows up at Keaton's house in the Hamptons, as the escort of Keaton's daughter (Amanda Peet). Nicholson has a minor heart attack and won't stay in the hospital, so is not allowed to move from Keaton's home for several days. Peet heads back to her life, and Keaton is stuck playing nursemaid to The Joker. Keaton is an uptight woman who wears turtlenecks in summer. Nicholson is a relaxed, jolly soul. Keanu Reeves is on hand as Nicholson's doctor, who happens to be Keaton's biggest fan, and falls in love with her.

    The table is set.

    Nicholson's record producer is a lot like some of the Nicholson characters of old, yet the subtle differences make it a beautiful piece of characterization. He's not smarmy, or snide, or even full of mischief. He's not even that feisty. He's just a fun loving guy, with a big genuine laugh, and a real love of life. Unlike Nicholson's usual roles, he's not self-amused, but simply amused. Although he is pictured as a womanizer, and he makes some comments that the older women find offensive, he's not at all a shameless roué. He's not even any good at sex, and he hasn't managed to get Peet in the sack yet. Younger women just like hanging around him because he's genuine, and he's always fun. Nicholson is perfect in this role, perhaps because he is playing himself, or perhaps because he is a genius in front of a lens.

    There are some great laughs.

    At one point Nicholson has a heart attack when he tried to have sex with Peet:

    Doctor: Are you taking Viagra?

    (Women appear in the hallway. Nicholson sees them, knows they can hear the conversation.)

    Nicholson: No of course not. I don't need Viagra.

    Doctor: Good. I just needed to know if you had taken Viagra today, because the IV I just gave you, when mixed with Viagra, is potentially fatal.

    (Nicholson rips IV from his arm.)

    Good to see Diane Keaton back on top. I met her once, at a book fair in Dallas in the mid 80s. She was amazingly humble and gracious considering that (1) I was just some schmuck attending a book fair and she was Annie Hall (2) I was a complete asshole and insulted her book. Well, not really, but kinda. She was there to hawk her book "Reservations", which consisted of her own photographs of hotel lobbies, and amazingly, I was the only one at her booth. I told her that I loved her book and that she was an incredibly talented photographer, which was true, but I added gratuitously that it was overpriced and wouldn't sell many copies because not many people are really that excited about hotel lobbies, no matter who the photographer might be. I was right, of course, but I should learn when to shut the hell up. She was taken aback when I asked her to lend me twenty bucks so I had enough to buy the book, but she recovered when she caught on that I was kidding, and accepted my criticism of the price graciously, even signing a bunch of stuff for my wife.

    Is she a great actress? I don't know. I've always found her mannerisms very repetitious, and that kind of unharnessed duplication can be irritating, but she certainly does the things necessary for a role, and that's what the great ones do. There is a scene where Nicholson accidentally sees her naked while he's convalescing in her house. In that hands of a less courageous actress, this would have been a bullshit head-and-shoulders shot of Keaton from Nicholson's POV, and a very minimal laugh because it has been done a zillion times before. Keaton, however, did the full frontal nudity necessary to make it one of the most memorable comic moments in screen history, as well as to create a real buzz about the film, of the kind that the marketing department loves - all while keeping a PG-13 rating. Ladies and gents, that is how to keep the money department and the creative department on the same page, but more important, that is how great performers approach a role, doing whatever they need to do to get it right. So hats off to Miss Keaton for baring it all at age 57 - and for looking just fine while doing so. Annie Hall, I still love ya, and I'd even buy your book now if it were still in print.




    Any chance of an MPEG from ANGELS IN AMERICA for us Mary Louise Parker  fans....? For xmas?

    Scoop's reply:

    Sure enough. These are not my clips, so you'll have to figure out how to use them. They are all .avi's and are all in DivX encoding, and all played for me, so if you have the latest DivX codec (, you should be sitting pretty. If worse comes to worst, download the latest DivX player and the codec, and that should do it. The best way to save these things is usually to right-click, then save them to your own hard disk, which allows you to see if they're coming in properly, allows you to place them in a specific directory of your choice, and allows you to re-play them as often as you like without delay. The two TV clips aren't great quality, but they are good enough. The Ricci clip is spectacularly good.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

  • Jackson News from The New York PostJACKO FINDS ISLAM The King of Pop is restyling himself Jacko X.

    P. DIDDY COMING TO BROADWAY He Took It Because He Likes Raisins - P. Diddy plans to make his Broadway acting debut this spring in a revival of "Raisin In The Sun." It's his first stage role and cynics are predicting a disaster, but the producer said he's "so right for the role," and he plans to help by surrounding him with theater veterans.

  • That way, if he's bad, he'll really stand out.
  • No need: he'll already be surrounded by his posse.
  • Don't worry, if the reviews are bad, he'll just shoot the critics.
  • P. Diddy is preparing for the role by stockpiling lots of sun screen.

    ALL-BRAWL HOCKEY GAME PLANNED Put Some Ice On That - Next September, promoters in Grand Forks, North Dakota, will present "The Battle of the Hockey Gladiators," a hockey game with no skating or shooting, just brawls. Players will pay $250 each for a chance to win $50,000 as the champion brawler. They'll take turns going onto the ice and pummeling each other for two minutes. They say people claim they love the game, but they really just want to see blood, and this strips hockey to its essentials. They're working on a pay-per-view deal and hope to have videos of it available by next Christmas.

  • And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
  • The winner gets $50,000, but he'll need $60,000 worth of dental work.
  • In this game, you go to the penalty box if you DON'T knock somebody's teeth out.
  • This won't be hockey...It'll be more like pro wrestling, only with real blood.
