1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie Review
This was a perfectly serviceable live-action tribute to the works of beloved childrenís author Dr. Seuss that started an idea. A terrible, awful idea: copy-and-paste, pop-culture laden ransackings of childhood memories. But we can at least sit here and enjoy its sire, which is actually entertaining.
2. The Muppet Christmas Carol Movie Review
How do you take a classic Christmas tale that has some really screwed up imagery which we keep telling to our children and make it overly kid-friendly? You add the greatest comedy troupe in the world. Not the Monty Python. Not Broken Lizard. You add in Jim Hensonís Muppets. And they slay it.
3. Dutch Movie Review
In this little-known John Hughes comedy, Ed OíNeill is the crass, no-nonsense Al Bun-- I mean, Dutch Dooley. His new girlfriend has a son whoís been a bit too influenced by his snot-nosed father, and Dutch agrees to escort the boy home for Thanksgiving, not knowing the horrors that lie in wait...
4. Trading Places Movie Review
Where John Hughes was the master of the PG-13 comedy in the 80s, John Landis owned the R-rated comedy category back then. This classic starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd amidst the high-stakes world of commodities training is a hilarious and surprisingly well-researched dive into the other side.
5. Home Alone Movie Review
A movie that introduced John Hughes to the 1990s and its children, directed by a guy who would make his name known to a generation of children in the 2000s by directing the Harry Potter films, who also wrote The Goonies. But does the film encourage violence against hobos? Maybe.
6. Liar Liar Movie Review
Fletcher Reede is an up-and-coming lawyer with a promising career and a terrible family life. Itís all about to change when his son makes a wish for him to stop lying, in what is possibly the most depressing plot MacGuffin used for massive comedic effect in the history of cinema.
7. Slapstick Comedy - A second-by-second breakdown
If ballet dancing is the most elegant form of physical expression, then slapstick comedy has been given an ill-fitting reputation as its beer-swilling knucklehead cousin no everyone turns their nose up at. Here's why you shouldn't.
8. Team America Movie Review
What happens when the demented geniuses behind South Park make a movie specifically to lampoon the United Stateís 2000ís-era foreign policy? You get, quite simply, the most raunchy, profane, over-the-top movie ever made (with puppets).
9. Army of Darkness Movie Review
The final and most shameless film of the Evil Dead trilogy makes for an instant Halloween classic. Rather than being a flat-out slasher flick like the previous movies, Army of Darkness takes us on a dark and twisted fantasy adventure that makes it the perfect epic ending for Giggleween!
10. Beetlejuice Movie Review
This funny and spooky mashup from Tim Burtonís breakout period in the 80s is still a classic today. Itís classic Burton, with animation and art that canít be mistaken. Be wary though, even though this movie is rated PG, itís not really for little kids. But mom and dad will have a blast.
