    How High

    ★★★★

    After a really rough introductory 15 minutes, this movie falls into a hyperactive stoner college comedy formula that makes well worn tropes hilarious by taking a Not Another Teen Movie approach of using formulas while exploiting them (incidentally, NATM came out one week before this. December 2001 was weird). 

    It’s like Animal House / PCU + Up in Smoke but replacing Cheech and Chong with Method Man and Redman. It’s basically a bunch of skits stuck together but I kind of like that style.

    Drowning Mona

    One Night at McCool’s meets an poverty-stricken Knives Out, but where the solution to the mystery is bluntly obvious from frame one and the jokes are nearly non existent. 

    Mona (Midler) is the brutal matriarch of a small town family who takes her son’s car one morning and crashed into a lake and dies. The movie then investigates the murder with reconstructions of past events and lies and…it’s just terrible. It’s not as dry or cynical as DeVito’s usual fare. It just kind of…sucks.

Otherwise, there is a photo of him holding three young girls, almost insinuating they're his daughters, and interviews with Dick Cavett talking about his children, that he didn't have.…

    Oh. My. God.

    So, there's this philosophy professor who's an atheist because his mom died of cancer when he was 12. He's dating this 25 year old Christian whose 85-year-old mother has Alzheimer's Disease and a fondness for chicken. The 25-year-old's father is only like 50, and doesn't visit his ex-wife. Like the professor, Business Dad is also an atheist. He was dating a 25-year-old, until she revealed she had cancer. That 25-year-old atheist got cancer after conducting a Gotcha…
