Coyote Ugly

Plot: A girl from Brooklyn moves to NYC to make her career as song-writer, but is afraid of singing. This one is not going to win any awards, but it's a nice, entertaining, feel good flick. Plus, some hot girls dancing. Like Flashdance, a good "aspiring artist" in the big city movie. Moral: Classic overcoming fear flick. read more

Hardball

Plot: Low-life sports bettor is given team to coach by Wall Street friend; kids are taught by Diane Lane, Keanu Reeves' romantic interest. He ends up coaching them, buying them uniforms, and joining the school as physical coordinator. Comments: The little boy, G-man, who plays the youngest player on the team is very touching; he is the one who dies in the end. Also touching is when little fat boy gets beat up because the game ended after dark. Good movie; well done, worth seeing again just to watch the kids. read more

Changing Lanes

Plot: Two men are involved in a morning car accident; uninjured, but frustrated and angry, they begin a feud that reveals their worst qualities. The movie doesn't end there, though, and the men force themselves to examine their lives and the way they live them. Comments: One of the best movies we've seen. Intelligent, daring - brings to mind that "the unexamined life is not worth living". The characters are richly portrayed - they're realistic and stay true to themselves. There are no false notes in this movie. Moral: we like the fact that the men don't play by life's rules -- that they bend and stretch them at the END without compromising their inherently good principles. They went to the edge of themselves, so to speak - the most flawed parts of themselves - and found the strength to return to their cores of goodness and justice. They didn't blindly accept their fates or others' perceptions of them. read more

About A Boy

30-something bachelor, on the cusp of being unhappy with his singleness, begins to examine his lifestyle and goals with the unrequested aid of a fatherless, taunted, mature-beyond-years boy. Comments: Interesting movie, very good. Hugh Grant stands out as complacent but redeemable Will. The child actor who played mature, sweet, introspective Marcus got it dead on. Also liked self-assured Ellie character. Nice to see female teen portrayed as smart AND nice (not witchy). Moral: We don't know, really. Of course there's a lot to be said for goodness and treating others with respect, but this movie goes beyond that -- the Will character examines his life and does what few people do: is unhappy with it and actually makes changes. So, we guess, it's about reaching out, even to the most unlikely people, and following through, even though the path may be hidden. Quotes: "When I hear you sing it's like sunshine." Marcus' mom to Marcus read more
