Ever had a bad day and needed something, anything, to turn that day around? Ever felt like you needed to laugh and just escape to a happier place because you are fighting off tears or frustration? Well, viewers, I had such a day, then “Margarine Wars” came along and changed absolutely everything for me! This is a feel-better, feel-good, no, feel-fantastic, light hearted comedy that will not just make you laugh but transport you to another time. The time period is 1967, it is the Summer of Love and for Howard Shmear it is also the unforgettable summer of his life. Howard leaves New York to set his sights on an acting pursuit in San Francisco, but unfortunately crashes his bus into a cow along the way in Wisconsin. This traveling hiccup turns into so much more, life moves slower in the country, people and businesses have a different way of life in the country, and Howard’s bus debacle leaves him there to learn of the people of this small dairy town and to learn more about himself. He soon discovers the insipid law that margarine is illegal in Butterfield, and becomes the “margarine pusher” so to speak. What ensues is utter hilarity and many poignant moments that will make you completely forget you are having a day other than an utterly fantastic one!

It is no wonder that this film premiered at several festivals around the world including; The Thessaloniki Film Festival, Mar de Plata Film Festival, and the Hellenic Film Academy Awards (where Psikou won Best First Film Director) because this Greek offering is a delightful combination of self-pity, dark humor and utter drama. It stars Christos Stergioglou (he won Best Actor at the Thessaloniki Festival) playing Antonis, a depressed, yet once beloved actor whose career has slowly slipped out of his fingers with time and age. To combat this career plight, Antonis comes up with the lame, cheap idea to stage his own kidnapping to regain the adoration and win the hearts and sympathy of his fans once again. Not only does this film manage to accentuate the craze that comes with fame from the famous to their fans, but (in Greek film style) it also manages to touch on the country at the time, which was in an economic depression so to speak. I must say, I always love it when a film can unfold both as the country and its characters lend so much value to a story. It is fun and funny to watch Antonis wallow in his own self pity and self loathing, that may sound strange, but it is in the darkest parts of the film that humor comes alive. Please do not dream of counting this movie out, as “The Eternal Return Of Antonis” is TRULY a spectacular satirical masterpiece!

If you love Jeremy Piven as much as I do, than “Just Write” is yet another film you can add to the list of favorite Piven flicks. It is a simple, yet sweet and heartwarming love story. Harold (Jeremy Piven) is a Hollywood Stars Tour bus driver, with his sharp and witty tongue, it is his ideal job. That is, until one day, he runs into Amanda (Sherilyn Fenn) a Hollywood A-List celebrity and he forgets all logic and hides his career. Harold instead goes as far as to tell Amanda that he is a screenwriter. The more Harold and Amanda get to know one another, the deeper Harold digs himself into the hole he has created. It soon becomes imperative that Amanda learn the truth about Harold, but what will she decide once she does know? The upbeat and synthesized sounds of the nineties can be heard throughout this soundtrack, in “Just Write,” which is a fun jaunt down memory lane. And not unlike many romantic comedies of the 90′s, we have a certain predictability that goes without saying. Nevertheless, Piven and Fenn bring a charming and loving chemistry to this easy and breezy film, that TRULY will make you feel good, tonight!

What we have here viewers, is a silly, sexy, light and fun-filled dramedy about a gorgeous bombshell pop star who lives a double life as a private investigator. Do not be fooled by the silly title, director Erik Sharkey takes his comedy seriously, meaning nothing is overlooked from start to finish, he manages to throw every ingredient into “Sexina” to create a delicious offering for us moviewatchers. The opening song of the film (sung by legendary Davey Jones) is done in the style of James Bond’s openings, with lyrics such as; ” she’s famous, but she has one more identity, she is hot, she is tough, she has the boobs and the brain of a queen, she’s every man’s dream,..” is a delightfully fun way to start a film like this, I would say. The pop superstar, Sexina is in competition with her male pop star equivalent, the handsome Lance and their interaction is a fun campy sort. Then there are Sexina’s “investigations” which are simply her dressing up head-to-toe in sexy leather and her asking others a multitude of questions. Sexina is on a quest to save the music industry from destruction. The fact that she has others do her legwork was not missed by this reviewer. However the scenes with Sexina and talk show host Lauren and the scene in which a man is mauled by another man in a bear costume, make the film “Sexina” worth the romp. Although “Sexina” is superficial and a bit childish, I would have to say that those are the aspects I frequently enjoy in movies intended on being simply light-hearted and amusing.

Think “Sex and the City” meets any Sandra Bullock romantic comedy and you have a good idea of the wittiness that “Just Sex and Nothing Else” delivers, viewers. Yes, I was laughing in the first five minutes and snort-laughing (attractive, I know) by ten minutes into the film. We have a beautiful thirty-something lead character, who is blonde, available, and completely and utterly single. The fact that she is a knock-out and completely successful seem to make little difference as she cannot seem to find the right man to marry and settle down with. Despite these blaring factors that would make childbearing an impossibility, our leading lady, Dora yearns with all of her heart, to have children and experience motherhood. This movie being a hilarious comedy, she of course, does not go about her quest for childbearing in the usual old-fashioned way. No instead, Dora puts out an ad (after the urging of her girlfriend) for yes, folks, a donor. You can, I am sure, only imagine the hilarity that ensues after she places such a call out there to the male race. Full of moments reminiscent of the chick flick, “Bridesmaids”, I must say that this little Hungarian gem of a comedy had me in stitches and wishing it would not end. If you are looking for a feel great romance, “Just Sex and Nothing Else,” is the perfect flick for your next date night.

This movie is best suited for college dudes or horny males, I hate to be so blunt, but “Due West: Our Sex Journey” is about sex, more sex, and then even more sex. There are some knock-out, drop-dead gorgeous women in this film, guys, and I am not embellishing in the slightest when I say this, this flick is eye-candy galore! I do not want to minimize the films content as it also has a great deal of humor, a pretty poignant underlying story line, heaps of raunchiness, fun-filled male testosterone moments and sex. I guess I was just surprised by the “R” Rating of the film when there was such explosive, steamy, breasts-baring, sweaty scenes. Let us get down to the plot, our star is a young and completely nerdy Asian student literally in his sexual prime and he falls madly in-love with a stunning woman, but from one debacle to another he quickly realizes he cannot “control” his “manliness” and at the encouragement of his buddies, he heads west to check out the multitude of brothels and hone up on his sexual skills, so to speak. The journey, the women, the people he encounters along the way, ultimately create a life-changing experience in this sexual, sexy, comedy about sex. Guys, grab your buddies and watch “Due West: Our Sex Journey” today!

David Coulier from ʺFull Houseʺ hits it out of the park, for a grand slam of comedy, in his film ʺThe Clean Guys of Comedy.ʺ He draws from his experience and admiration of ʺclean comediansʺ which he feels is much harder and smarter comedy to create. This a one-night stand-up show that is amusing, fun and of course profanity-free. This may sound simple, but to write smart and witty ʺcleanʺ comedy is no easy feat, it takes stellar writing and great delivery. ʺThe Clean Guys of Comedyʺ deliver that on all levels. Other than Coulier, there is Jamie Kennedy, Heather McDonald (Chelsea Lately), Ralph Louis Harris (Dreamgirls), Andy Hendrickson, Thor Ramsey and Michael Joiner. (Thor and Michael are notable Christian comedians.) Although I enjoy many styles of comedy I found this film to be completely refreshing. It felt good to know that my five year-old daughter could walk in the room and she was not going to hear anything completely inappropriate. Out of all the comedians, I found Michael’s set to be the most hilarious, but all of the comedians did a fantastic job. I have to be honest and say that some of the comics took some time to warm up and find their ʺflowʺ and a few also seemed to be trying too hard, yet overall, I love the concept as I have been a huge fan of comedians who have the natural knack to make folks laugh. With that said, grab your whole family and sit down and get ready to crack up, tonight!

Perverts, kinky-ness, Lego animation, boy-band-videos, and enough male testosterone to fill up a football stadium, this is what “SDU: Sex Duties Unit” is all about, folks. The story (I use that term loosely) is about a Special Forces Elite Unit who are stressed out between work and home so they decide to go for a weekend of unadulterated fun to Macau to let off some steam. They even coin this so called weekend “Sex Wars.” Yes folks, this is part comedy, part drama, and all nonsense. First, the gang head out for some “supplies” and wind up at a sex shop to buy an assortment of male performance enhancers such as the “Never Gonna Fall” and “100% Tower,” crude, yes, but that is part of the humor. I immediately found this Hong Kong comedy to be reminiscent of the “Hangover” movies, but not quite as good nor as complex. I will have to say that the actors do manage to create a great on-screen chemistry amongst themselves, despite the cheesy script. Not to worry viewers, there is enough beautiful Asian women, breasts, eye candy, and fun for all, in spite of the inadequate plot. I would say if you are looking for some harmless fun for the night, then “SDU: Sex Duties Unit” is the one to watch!

“Love Espresso” is about four frustrated, twenty-something men, who are in the throes of relationships, dating, sex, and the pursuit of women. It is about the fun adventures and mishaps that four young men can have navigating the torrential waters of dating the “right” and “wrong” women, and there is sex and raunchiness and hilarity throughout, but it is also a heartwarming, touching film about bonding and what it is TRULY like for men out there in this insane world of dating. We have four main characters to follow and when Pedro is dumped by his girlfriend of four years, well, his buddies do what buddies do, take him out and get him completely hammered drunk till they end up with a car towed with one of their friends in the trunk. There is one lovable friend, (who lives with his hysterical, impatient, strict, but loving grandma) and his amigos are constantly encouraging him to woo women, despite his one liners failing with every lady he encounters. What I loved so much about “Love Espresso” is the balance of the film. There are moments of insane hilarity, there are winks of complete guy-isms, there are plenty of boobs and bimbos, yet there are also wonderful times of brotherhood, deep friendship and ultimately, love. “Love Espresso” is the witty, romantic film to nestle up to your partner with and watch, tonight!
