Review: Stuber

byDancin' Dan

Stu is a nice guy.Far too much of a nice guy,in fact.After he clocks out from his job working a big-box sports store,he cleans his car and clocks in to Uber,enduring all the assholes and drunks that use the car service in and around Los Angeles.He does this to get the money to help his best friend Becca open an all-women spin center,because he's also hopelessly in love with her.So after a rash of particularly bad (and mostly unfair) Uber reviews puts his precious star rating in jeopardy,and taciturn cop Vic Manning gets in his car,Stu is willing to do just about anything to make sure he gets a five-star rating.The problem is,Vic is reeling from the death of his partner,has just gotten a lead on his killer,and just had Lasik eye surgery.He can't see,and needs someone to drive him.Let the sparks - and laughs - fly.

Yes,the plot ofStuberis pretty boilerplate buddy comedy stuff.But it gains a lot from its casting...

Ashley Judd might have been Arwen...or Galadriel

by Nathaniel R

Ashley Judd in her blockbuster breakout "Double Jeopardy"in 1999I keep getting into trouble when I tweet out semantic arguments on the internet as if I'm missing the point of very serious topics.So let me assure you that I'm not missing the point.I am filled with rage when I read these stories about the toxic treatment of actresses in Hollywood but the only way I can cope (I live for actresses,duh) is to nerd out and take deep dives into thinking about their filmographies,or looking at Oscar stats,or other less fraught things to rage less.Lashing out in all directions with rage or feeding my rage by continually sharing it is just not my way and has never helped me cope with pain.So,in other words,I'll save my little semantics quibble until the end of the post.

Anyway the reveals of what Harvey Weinstein was up to in his most powerful days keep getting worse.To stay within the confines of Weinsten adjacent imagery,let's just say it makes me want to watch anInglorious Basterdsahistorical style rewrite in which some Ashley Judd gets the Brad Pitt role and her team of merciless female soldiers gives Weinstein what he deserved back then...

AV Clubon the proliferation and pros and cons of the anthology format,postAmerican Horror Story.Interesting but I dearly wish people would stop crediting Ryan Murphy with inventing a genre.Anthologies have existed since the beginning of television.He just popularized them again after a few decades when they went mostly extinct.It's like crediting Baz Luhrmann for inventing musicals or something.

ICYMI
Here atTFEwe recently discussed that recent damning Miles Tellers profile in Esquire and The New York Times has now published"a brief history of the tough celebrity profile"featuring Mira Sorvino,Cara Delevingne,Ernest Hemingway,and more.I thought I'd share it sincewe were just talking about Mira Sorvino at length in Mighty Aphrodite.

Stage Door
Playbillawww.Cyndi Lauper visited the stars ofFun Homebackstage.Incidentally the show has been selling out houses for months now.That Tony win did good for a great musical.I keep wondering if anyone will dare make it into a movie?
