My Thoughts:
I quite enjoyed this one. Just a fun light-hearted romantic comedy. I have seen this mentioned a few times as a recommendation for a South Korean comedy. It had some really funny moments in it. A few of those I found quite daring.

My Summer Story, a review by KinkyCyborg




Title:My Summer Story
Year: 1994
Director: Bob Clark
Rating: PG
Length: 85 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Charles Grodin
Kieran Culkin
Mary Steenburgen
Christian Culkin
Al Mancini

Plot:
Charles Grodin (Beethoven), Kieran Culkin (Father of the Bride), and Mary Steenburgen (Elf) star in this delightful sequel to A Christmas Story. For 10-year-old Ralphie Parker (Culkin, it would be a summer filled with adventure. Whether conducting a quest for the ultimate in spinning tops, watching his mother (Steenburgen) lead the gravy boat rebellion at the Orpheum Theater, or aiding the Old Man (Grodin) in his one-man war against their hillbilly neighbors, this was the summer Ralphie would always rememebr as the greatest of his life.

Extras:
Scene Access
Feature Trailers
Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:

Billed as the sequel to A Christmas Story, it is in fact directed by Bob Clark but I must question his sanity for putting out this movie as all it accomplishes is tarnish a classic.

The characters all are back... Ralphie Parker, The Old Man, brother Randy... but with different actors that hold nothing to the original cast. I didn't find this even remotely funny. Charles Grodin, whom I've always admired as an actor, is quite annoying as The Old Man with more grunting and wailing than actual dialogue. Mary Steenburgen, always graceful and pretty, shames herself with this role as a complete ditz.

I'd rather go blind than watch this again.  :thumbdown:

Tom's Random Reviews, a review by Tom




Title: Cheers: Season Eleven
Year: 1992
Director: James Burrows
Rating: NR
Length: 648 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles:

Stars:
Ted Danson as Sam Malone
Kirstie Alley as Rebecca Howe
Rhea Perlman as Carla Tortelli
John Ratzenberger as Cliff Clavin
Woody Harrelson as Woody Boyd
Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Frasier Crane
George Wendt as Norm Peterson


My Thoughts:

Cheers is one of the comedy series I always enjoyed. In the mid-90s, this series was first shown on German television (not counting the airing of the first 13 episodes in the 80s with different dub on public television) in the "great" time slot some time after midnight. I always made sure to tape the show to watch it the next day.
My favorite characters are Norm and Cliff. The most annoying character is Rebecca (Kirstie Alley).
Highlight in this final season for me is the last Bar Wars episode, where Gary (Cheers' nemesis) is tricked to demolish his pub. And of course the final episode.
