Times Staff WriterPoor John Waters. If the Tony Award-winning musical of Waters' film "Hairspray" weren't proof enough that the onetime dean of depravity — our king of kitsch and sultan of scatology — has outlived his outrageousness, here comes "American...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 9, 1999 "American Pie" is the darndest thing. Both warmhearted and foul-mouthed, this unlooked-for hybrid of "South Park" and Andy Hardy uses its surface crudeness as sucker bait to entice teenage audiences into the tent to see a movie...
FOR THE TIMESFriday July 21, 2000 It takes a lot of chutzpah to recycle Simon & Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair" for a plaintive movie interlude, almost as much as it takes to title your movie "Loser." That's about as far as nerve takes writer-director Amy...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday June 16, 2000 "Boys and Girls," a likably thoughtful romantic comedy, suggests that as we enter the new millennium the dating game is getting tougher by the second, especially among the best and the brightest. So self-conscious and ultimately...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday February 9, 2001 "Saving Silverman" is a standard-issue numskull comedy that aims low but is high in energy. The humor may be less than inspired, to put it kindly, but the shenanigans are nonstop. In any event, director Dennis Dugan has...
Chicago Tribune Movie Critic2-1/2 stars (out of 4) "Jersey Girl," the newest Kevin Smith movie, briefly reunites Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. But that's the least of its problems. As we watch this long-shelved romantic comedy/family drama from the maker of "Clerks" and "Dogma,"...
Against the Ropes Boxing manager Jackie Kallen is the real-life inspiration for this fictional story of a fighter (Omar Epps) and his handler (Meg Ryan). With Tony Shalhoub, Tim Daly, Kerry Washington. Directed by Charles S. Dutton. Paramount, March...
Chicago Tribune Movie Critic1 1/2 stars (out of 4) Movie success often breeds complacency, big bucks often foster laziness, and "American Wedding" proves both. It's one more slice of raunchy comedy from the "American Pie" franchise, this time bringing back most of the male...
Times Film CriticThe '2' in the title says all you need to know about "American Pie 2." It's a copy all the way, a disheartening attempt to capitalize on the success of the original. Though few adults saw it, the first "American Pie" was more than a power at the box...
Times Staff WriterOffering proof that even the most recalcitrant old dog can learn new tricks if his chain gets jerked hard enough, Woody Allen has wisely opted out of playing the romantic lead in his latest film. Modestly conceived and affably low-key, "Anything Else"...
This is the traditional slow time at the cinemas -- just don't tell the moviegoers, studios and theater owners. After the dismal summer and disappointing fall of 2000, moviegoers finally were offered a selection of movies they liked, and they've been...

"American Pie," "Scary Movie," "Rush Hour" and "Doctor Dolittle" all get second chapters and "Jurassic Park" gets a third, while director Tim Burton puts his own spin on "Planet of the Apes." Unofficial sequels also pop up, like John Singleton's "Baby...
