Plot:
The zaniness continues in My Blue Heaven, which asks Can an urban hood be happy with suburbanhood? Martin is a mob informant tucked away in a Witness Protection Program.

Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
I went into this one not sure what to expect since Steve Martin in his early career was rather silly and over acted. And this one is no exception. But it does have a pretty good storyline. Nothing really laugh out loud funny... but more smile on your face fun. There was also one of those familiar faces that I have seen a lot... but never knew who the guy was. A skinny older guy with a very memorable voice. I looked him up on the credits... his name is  William Hickey. Anyone recognize him by his name here? Unfortunately the DVD itself leaves a lot to be desired. Part of a Comedy Double Feature with another old Steve Martin movie The Man with Two Brains... there is no extras what so ever for this movie...and it is in Pan and Scan. Which is something I wish I noticed before I bought the release. At least it was cheap at only $3.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
After the last movie I felt like another fun buddy cop movie. I have seen and enjoyed the first 2 movies in this series... but this is the first time I got the chance to see this one. But it is definitely another one I really enjoyed. Has a lot of laughs in it. I would say if you liked the first couple of movies you will like this one as well. Though I would warn that this movie is basically just more of the same... just at a different location.

Tom's Buffy and Angel Marathon, a review by Tom


20. War Zone (2000-05-09)
Writer: Garry Campbell (Writer)
Director: David Straiton
Cast: David Boreanaz (Angel), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase), Alexis Denisof (Wesley Wyndam-Pryce), Michele Kelly (Alonna), Maurice Compte (Chain), Mick Murray (Knox), Joe Basile (Lenny Edwards), David Herman (David Nabbit), J. August Richards (Charles Gunn), Sean Parhrm (Bobby), Sven Holmberg (Ty), Rebecca Klingler (Madame Dorion), Kimberly James (Lina), Ricky Luna (James)

An episode I never really enjoyed that much. I always thought that Gunn is a boring character. And I don't know why they had to bring a character "from the street" into the mix.
