EDIT: I mean, do you see this? I was so busy this week that I didn't even schedule this to go at midnight this morning. I did watch part of the first season of Torchwood again, which, if you're any kind of Doctor Who fan and you haven't seen this yet, what the hell are you waiting for, man?!
This first one is actually from last week, that the kids and I watched, but I forgot to add it.
The Tale of Despereaux
2008 - Matthew Broderick, Emma Watson, Dustin Hoffman, Sigourney Weaver
The tale of a mouse named Despereaux (Broderick) who has an adventurous spirit, much to the chagrin of his father (William H. Macy) and the Mouse Town mayor (Frank Langella). Caught sneaking into the royal palace library and speaking with the princess (Watson), Despereaux is banished into the sewer, where he finds Rat Town. It is not a nice place, and the rats are ready to see Despereaux eaten by a cat when he is spared by Roscuro (Hoffman). A delightful animated film, loosely based on the Kate DiCamillo novel of the same name. Decent film with an extraordinary cast; in addition to the above, Kevin Kline, Robbie Coltrane, Tony Hale, Ciaran Hinds, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Jenkins, Bronson Pinchot, Charles Shaughnessy, Stanley Tucci, and Traci Ullman. 4/5
A Night at the Roxbury
1998 - Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon
A feature-length film based on a recurring skit from Saturday Night Live. This one follows Steve (Ferrell) and Doug (Kattan) Butabi, sons of a Yemini businessman (Hedaya), and their adventures (read: attempts) at clubbing. Their one goal is to get into a popular club, The Roxbury. One night, they are rear-ended by 21 Jump Street icon Richard Greico (playing himself). Not wanting to involve the police, Greico uses Steve and Doug's heavily-apparent star-struck demeanor and takes them into The Roxbury...where their adventures are just beginning. You know, some skits should be made into movies and some should not. This is the latter. It had some funny moments, but this one should have stayed a recurring skit to eventually just disappear past its time. 2.25/5
