All-American Co-Ed, a review by Danae Cassandra

All-American Co-Ed
Year of Release: 1941
Directed By: LeRoy Prinz
Starring: Frances Langford, Johnny Downs, Marjorie Woodworth, Noah Beery Jr.
Genre: Comedy, Musical

All-girl school Mar Brynn tries to get more pupils and publicity by making fun of the Quincton college. For revenge, the boys there sent Bob Sheppard to Mar Brynn, dressed as a girl, to give them a slight scandal. But he falls in love with Virginia, the girl who is putting on a show there. Now Bob has the problem of getting revenge for Quinceton and not loosing his girl, especially when Quinceton hears about his relationship and decides to sent him support...

My Thoughts:
Toss some drag, terrible female impersonation, a bit of romance, and a lot of innuendo in the script and you actually get a funny comedy.  I chuckled several times.  It's no great cinema, but unlike the other films I've watched in the Mill Creek set this is part of, the actors and script aren't the weakest part.

Bechdel Test: Fail
Mako Mori Test: Fail

Overall: 2.75/5

(From July Movie Marathon: Musicals (Yes... You read right!) on July 22nd, 2016)

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


What's the show about?
Joey Tribbiani is an actor living in L.A. who can't get a decent acting job. He's living with his nephew who is a college student and slightly smarter than Joey - and his sister drops in all the time.

What happened before?
Joey has been living on New York for the last ten years and he had a couple of friends there but life moves on and so did he.

Joey has just arrived in L.A. but after a few days of shooting his new show it gets cancelled. Now Joey has no job and he's sitting in an empty apartment. And his nephew asks him whether he can move in, too, since he doesn't want to live in his mother's home anymore. Joey's sister Gina is not amused.

My Opinion
I watched a couple of episodes but never the whole season. It simply wasn't the same. Seeing Matt LeBlanc as Joey again was just a sad reminder that Friends is actually over and that there won't be new episodes with the six of them. So I don't think I am going to see this two-season series entirely.
