Film Review: Diane Keaton in ‘Poms’

Film Review: Diane Keaton in ‘Poms’
Cheerleading is a sport that commands attention. It whips the crowd into a controlled fervor, getting people off their feet and cheering with excitement. Unfortunately, director Zara Hayes’ “Poms” barely manages to do the same with its story about a group of retired women who reclaim their vitality and challenge societal norms by forming a cheerleading squad. Though it aims to be more than just a mashup of “Bring It On” and “Book Club,” the inherently uplifting and endearing facets of its heartfelt sentiments are overtaken by artificial packaging and stale execution.

As a pessimistic New York City transplant, Martha (Diane Keaton) faces her greatest challenge yet: living in the impossibly peppy retirement community of Sun Springs, Ga. The lavish, well-maintained property fosters cheery dispositions and relaxed lifestyles — things a cynical curmudgeon like Martha despises. But her former life in the city was unbearably lonely, so she seeks a drastically different atmosphere.

‘Poms’ Film Review: Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver Bring Good Cheer to Senior Sports Comedy

‘Poms’ Film Review: Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver Bring Good Cheer to Senior Sports Comedy
There’s no shortage of spirit among the cast of “Poms,” Zara Hayes’ new cheerleading and retirement-age comedy hybrid, but not even this much pep can cover up all of the film’s missteps. Although it’s hard to stay disappointed for long when Diane Keaton is just one exasperated sigh from making you laugh again.

Life got in the way of Martha’s (Keaton) youthful dream of becoming a cheerleader, but her fondness for the sport remains through her older years. After a grim diagnosis of cancer, Martha sells off the bulk of her belongings and sets off from New York City to a retirement community in Georgia. She’s greeted by Southern belles and by Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), an overly friendly neighbor with a fondness for pink flamingos and bright makeup. Among the many arbitrary rules of her new home, Martha must find a club to participate in,

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Review

Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French, Kathleen Turner, Tembi Locke, Paul Blackthorne | Written by Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly, John Morris, Bennett Yellin | Directed by Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly

The comedy landscape may have monumentally shifted in the time since the original Dumb & Dumber but great comedy never ages. 1994’s Dumb & Dumber is a genuinely funny film, on a re-watch last month I still laughed loudly at a great many lines and visual gags (personal favourite? “I’m talking about a place called Aspen” “I don’t know Lloyd, the French are assholes”), and the central performances from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels manage to hit the line between charming and annoying exactly right. All this brings us to Dumb and Dumber To which finds the principal filmmakers in very different positions, Jim Carrey in need of a hit,

Dumb and Dumber To Movie Review
Title: Dumb and Dumber To Director: Bobby Farrelly & Peter Farrelly Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathless Turner, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. Dumb and Dumber Two or Dumb and Dumber Too? Either way the intentional typo reiterates the stupidity of our protagonists who are back after two decades. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have aged badly but more than their farcical out of date “dumb play,” the true problem of ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ lies in the script, drenched with language and coarsely vulgar gags. Twenty years since Dumb and Dumber’s first adventure, Harry finds out he has a daughter who was [ Read More ]

Lauren Ambrose will take part in the lesbian threesome in "Wanderlust"

Back in August, we told you Jennifer Aniston had been cast in a new Judd Apatow film called Wanderlust. Aniston plays Linda, a married woman (Paul Rudd plays her husband) who decide to live in a hippie commune for a while and de-stress. Part of this process includes some free love, in which both husband and wife are invited to engage, and Linda's sexual escapades lead her into a threesome with two women.

The only clue we had as to who Aniston will hook up with in the film was that one of the women would be pregnant. From reading the script's sides, it's apparent that Almond is the name of the pregnant character, and Lauren Ambrose has been cast in the role.

Now that we know she's involved, we can count out Malin Akerman, who plays Almond's sister, Eve. Eve is too concerned with trying to bed Paul Rudd.
