The result isn't awful, but it is awfully familiar. When will someone make a film about being old, poor and ugly in Omaha?

I enjoyed "Twelve" for some very superficial reasons. I am always drawn to films where characters intersect in random ways. Also, films about rich… More

It's like Brett Easton Ellis had a baby and threw it in a dumpster.

This is monumentally bad. Not only is it a terrible rendition of a great book, but it essentially says nothing at all. Joel Schumacher tries to bring in all… More
