Michael Dorsey is a talented actor, but his demanding nature and stubborn temperament have antagonized every producer in New York. Now his agent insists no one will hire him. But Michael needs money -- eight thousand dollars to be exact -- and to earn it, he's willing to play the role of a lifetime.

Dustin Hoffman stars with Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Bill Murray and Geena Davis in director Sydney Pollack's heart-filled classic that heralded a new era of Hollywood wig-flipping, and set a new standard for unpredictable laugh-out-loud comedy.

My Thoughts:

Can you believe this is the first time I ever watched this movie?

Dustin Hoffman shows you why he has won Oscars... He has the ability to truly envelope himself in his role. At times you forget he is only pretending to be a woman!

The movie is a bit dated but it has truly great and funny moments. I don't think I've ever seen Bill Murray so subdued in ANY movie. Geena Davis is smokin' hot! :o

Two thumbs up!

The Passion of the Christ, a review by Rich

The Passion of the Christ

From Academy Award®-Winning director Mel Gibson comes a profound story of courage and sacrifice depicting the final twelve hours in the life of Jesus Christ.
Featuring stunning cinematography and an inspired performance by Jim Caviezel, The Passion of the Christ is a triumphant and uncompromising filmmaking achievement.

Brutal, graphic, relentless and compelling. It is beautifully shot, but the level of violence is so extreme you become numbed by it, and I had a bad taste in my mouth after watching this. The Aramaic and Latin dialogue is not distracting if you are happy with subtitles, and the acting from the whole cast is top drawer. It is certainly moving in it's depiction of a man being tortured and killed in such an extreme nature, however Gibson perhaps lingers too much on this graphic display of suffering.
Not sure why there was such controversy over this film, perhaps the depiction of jews as evil antagonists, the Romans (aside from Pilate and his wife) as brutal drunkard sadists, or the 'historical accuracy'? The flashbacks of Jesus of Nazareths early life are far too infrequent reliefs from the violence, too short, and haphazard. When the cruxifixion finally takes place you are so used to the brutality that it has less shock appeal than I would have thought, and the ending could not come quick enough.
I am glad I have watched this, I can't say it was a pleasure, more of an experience.

My PILOT Marathon, a review by Rich


First aired: 9/28/2006
Betty has always dreamed of working in the publishing world, but it seems as though there's no place for the non-thin and non-beautiful in the business. People already have their minds set in the idea that beautiful women are only the thin and perfect! Betty really wants a job in that wonderful, yet cruel, world. But can she really find a place in it?

Ok I had female company when we watched this, so thats my excuse for putting this pilot in to the player.
However, I must admit I did find it ok and a few belly laughs were had along the way with this 'devil wears prada'/'ugly duckling' sister series.
The show wasn't what I was expecting, in a good colourful way.
America Ferrera as Betty totally steals the show, how crap do you feel for her during that photoshoot?
This series is still more designed for the female viewer, but I will now not be adverse to sitting down and watching a show or two.
