Asking the rest of the film to live up to such a ghastly opening is like asking a rinky-dink tugboat to tow a mammoth ocean liner across the ocean. Sean Murphy (Gabriel Byrne) owns the tugboat in question, and he employs "the best damn salvage crew in the business." In reality, they're a tough-talking, hard-drinking cast of carefully handpicked racial stereotypes, from an African-American first mate (Isaiah Washington) to a Mexican engineer (Alex Dimitriades) to an Italian salvage team leader (Julianna Margulies), who's a female, to boot.Continue reading: Ghost Ship Review When you were young and in boarding school, how did you like to spend your free time?
If you're like the characters in the disastrous yet train wreck-compelling direct to video feature The Hole, you like to hang out for days at a time locked in an abandoned bomb shelter. Continue reading: The Hole Review When a movie says it's "based on" a true story, all too often it means that after the script doctors get through with it, what's left is too predictable and packed with clichés to bear any resemblance to the randomness of real life.
Such is the case with "Riding In Cars With Boys."But it just so happens that clichés and predictability are director Penny Marshall specialty.
Dexter turns up, after romping around with Hannah for a while, to a bench dedication in honour of La Guerta.

After that a terminal illness surfaces, then a character goes on a road trip, where the seeds of love are planted.
The effect - and the ensuing bloody panic - is pretty cool, even if I still can't quite figure out how it worked.
The entire sequence doesn't justify you paying to see Ship, but it does mean you should arrive on time if indeed you opt to go.
Idle since "A League of Their Own" -- which was totally trite yet thoroughly enjoyable -- Marshall applies her syrupy, low-cal sentimentality to this adapted autobiography of writer Beverly Donofrio, whose youthful ambition was derailed in 1965, by getting knocked up at age 15.
A maudlin but self-deprecating, bittersweet comedy-drama in which major crises are solved with little more than hugs, Beverly's journey through motherhood would be the stuff of a Lifetime Channel movie-of-the-week if not for its gusty sense of humor and a phenomenal performance of extraordinary depth and range by the previously beguiling but frivolous Drew Barrymore.
But this is the last season, the last 12 episodes which will tie up the loose ends and we'll finally find out if Dexter will fly or fall.
