actor: Meg Ryan

The Women

I have a whole litany of complaints about this film, and I could easily write multiple pages on what I disliked about “The Women.” However, I will assume that if you’re reading this review, you probably want to know whether this film is appropriate for pre-teen and teen girls. Based upon [...]

In the Land of Women

Carter Webb has the ability to listen well and to dish out sound advice. This endears him to a mother and daughter he meets when he moves north to Michigan from Los Angeles to live for a time with his grandmother, following a break-up from his girlfriend Sofia (Elena Anaya). This story includes [...]

Against the Ropes

What "Against the Ropes" lacks in technical achievement and writing, it makes up for in emotional appeal. The depiction of the underdog rising to success pulls a heart string or, in this case, two, with the partnership of unlikely contenders Kallen and Shaw. Each of them having high potential that [...]

Kate and Leopold – Edited

October 14, 2003

Dove Approved for All Ages

I love to watch Meg Ryan on this screen. Even though she plays very similar roles, she brings a sparkle and innocent quality to her characters. In "Kate and Leopold," she finds that she is no good with men and has almost given up trying, but dives head-first into her career in advertising. Leopold [...]

City Of Angels – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage together on the same screen should be fireworks and wonderfully entertaining. While I found the storyline to be interesting, one Hollywood studio has taken this topic on before with the film "Michael" starring John Travolta, and with this one I guess I expected more than [...]

Prelude To A Kiss – Filtered

January 9, 2001
Peter and Rita meet at a party and hit it off. They marry six weeks later and at the wedding reception they notice an elderly man, and no one knows who he is. He approaches Rita and asks to kiss the bride. She agrees and in that instant, the sky darkens, the wind blows and something mysterious [...]

Proof Of Life

I have always preferred mounting suspense to exploding bombs in my movies. Guess which this film has. For the past fifteen years, film producers have placed emphasis on special effects and gruesome violence to maintain viewer interest. “Proof of Life” sees no reason to break with this new [...]

Hanging Up – Filtered

November 16, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Three sisters are responsible for their dying father. But two sisters (Keaton and Kudrow) are too busy with their jobs to help their sister ( Meg Ryan) take care of him. I thought this was a really good movie. I would recommend it but due the the thematic element of death, I would recommend it for [...]

Hanging Up

When not squirming in my seat from the pretentious and often, supercilious attempts at humor (while cooking a turkey dinner, the sisters, dressed in Donna Karan, begin laughing hysterically after a baking flour fight breaks out), I questioned, “Is this really what women had in mind when they [...]

The Presidio – Filtered

December 14, 1999
Sean Connery gives a good performance in "The Presidio," and that is pretty much the only positive thing in the film. The Clear Player does not do a very good job of editing the violence in "The Presidio," which includes quite a few people being shot with a good deal of blood shown. Of course there [...]
