That's the world of Lucky Them, in which Ellie Klug (Toni Collette), a rock critic for a rag in Seattle called Stax, must figure out a way to survive professionally. Her editor (Oliver Platt) thinks one big story could ebb the tide of print going extinct and so he wants Ellie to dig into the disappearance of Matthew Smith, who went off the radar a decade ago. Smith is also Ellie's ex lover in addition to a rock idol. Ellie, weary of younger men doing wrong by her, would prefer to disappear herself.But instead she goes on the road with Charlie (Thomas Haden Church),a dot-com-tycoon-turned-documentarian who is also searching for Matthew. Haden Church imbues the film with a bouyant kick, and he and Collette make a terrific pairing.Lucky Them is full of comic verve and sexual energy but it's a film of shocking gravity. Journalist Emily Wachtel, who wrote the script with Huck Botko, is clearly coming from somewhere personal, and director Megan Griffiths (Eden) complements her beautifully, as does exec producer Joanne Woodward and star Collette. When Ellie does end up finding Matthew (no fair spoiling what star plays him), it's a window into music's vibrant past and uncertain future. For Ellie, it's her finally finding strength in broken places.

Ken S (jp) wrote: This satire about the American political process set in a mid-west High School is very entertaining. Reese Witherspoon is great as Tracy Flick, and Matthew Broderick is also quite good as the suffering teacher and adviser. This is filled with biting satire and works on most levels. Alexander Payne is a fine filmmaker, and solidified his status as someone to watch out for with "Election."

Michael D (kr) wrote: Chaplin was a genius and Modern Times was his masterpiece. Modern Times is still relevant today. Modern Times is a film that will make you laugh out loud and shed tear all with perfect timing.. Chaplin was the master of entertainment! There is never a boring or dull moment in a Chaplin film. Modern Times especially.. This is a must see movie! Chaplin being the rebel that he was made this a silent film years after talkies were the norm. That's part of the beauty of this movie. What Chaplin does works and it's entertaining from start to finish.

But then, as I loosened up (and the movie did too), I fell into its rhythm. I never quite guffawed, but I appreciated the chaos and the well-timed reaction shots of Margaret Dumont. Perhaps the jokes were just too familiar for laughing out loud and they always do fly by fast: elephant in my pajamas and so on. Groucho is Captain Spalding, recently returned from Africa, and Dumont is hosting a party in his honor. At said party, a famous painting is to be unveiled - but then it is replaced with a copy and another copy and then all three paintings are stolen (by Harpo, of course). Except when it's Chico -- who also plays the piano ... wittily. The censors apparently struck out some jokes but not the Marx spirit which is subversive enough to come through anyway. The result is not quite up there with Duck Soup but it still makes you want to take everything less seriously.
