When I saw previews of Funny People on TV, the advertising made me believe that it was going to be a comedy. This was the use of genre film. Most people expected it to be a comedy because of the previews, the title, the actors, and the history of Judd Apatow movies. However, after actually seeing the movie, I didn’t think it was a comedy so much. With George Simmons health issue and his personal life with his ex lover, him not being a good family man, and him falling off as a comedian, I thought it was more of a serious film with funny parts added to it.
George Carlin a Man of Many Words During the life of the comedian George Carlin, his boldness with word play and his astonishing knowledge of the English Language, set a foundation for future comedians of being more audacious with their choice of lines and topics. George Carlin changed social media for upcoming generations. George Carlin was born on May 12, 1937, in New York City. His mother sent George to a progressive Catholic school. He was considered a class clown and struggled academically, although it wasn’t for a lack of intelligence (Driscoll).
For an example, a businessman, a pretty women, choreographer and soldier. The film also talked about how the ball is always changing. One older drag queen talked about how they were into dressing like show girls during his time. The winners of the ball usually branch of to form their own house or unit to mentor other gay men and transsexuals. The term they used for these individuals was mother.
Will can’t imagine leaving his roots and his slacker friends behind, but he agrees to see a therapist to help him realize his troubles. He also meets a beautiful girl that is a pre-med student at MIT that helps influence him to go on and leave his past behind. In the end, the person that sways his opinion is his best friend Chuckie who tells him to get out of town and become something great. It’s a great movie and won 2 academy awards, I would recommend that everyone should see it. The character that I am diagnosing is the main character, Will Hunting.
Ned is a hardcore aficionado of SF and FRPG, and frequently will reference some book or movie of that genre. Our group leader –otherwise an extremely intelligent woman– has absolutely no clue in the known universe what he is talking about, but I will invariably answer with the appropriate counter-reference; we then laugh and high-five, while Sharon just stands there shaking her head in awe that “You really get him, don’t you?” -- And she is on the outside for once. Today I am blessed with being able to take a class in Science Fiction Literature (one of the perks of returning to school after an extended hiatus). I was pleased to note that not only is the class evenly divided by gender, but when the instructor asked everyone how many considered themselves to be SF fans (rather than just taking the class to get a lit credit), a majority of the women raised their hands. It brought tears to these cynical eyes, to see that finally women can come out of the shadows and admit that we, too, like SF, and not raise any eyebrows of
Comedy is a composition that deals with a happy or cheerful theme which leads the characters to a happy ending. Movies are based on either tragedy or comedy which entertains everyone who watches them. Tragedy and comedy movies are similar in the way they entertain the audience, but both of them represent a different message and theme to the audience. Tragedy and comedy are similar in the way that they draw their audience in. Each movie, whether it is tragic or comic strives to draw the audience into the movie.
Many movies keep their audience on the edge clueless so this portrayal of Tristan’s father and mother was well directed. Throughout the movie there are so many lines that were hilarious! This showed brilliance as many people after the movie can remember these priceless quotes. I believe the film was really good. The
Those are the main types of movies that I enjoy, but I also like comedy movies for some laughs with friends. I love great comedy’s where we reuse quotes in the movie and apply them to our every day lives to relive the comedy in the films. I also enjoy some horror movies and other type of films of that nature as long as they actually happened. I do not enjoy imaginative and impossible things that could never happen in the real world, only things that are at least realistic or really did happen. Same thing for action or adventure movies, I do not like movies where there is some person who appears rather weak, but is still able to beat up hundreds of well trained soldiers.
In this weird and awkward movie a young couple Nick (George Segal) and Honey (Sandy Davis) are invited to George (Richard Burton) and Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) house for a party while being totally intoxicated. Burton and Taylor have a functional love hate relationship and both seem to enjoy bashing on each other throughout the whole movie. This movie brings a lot of unexpected turns that boggles my mind of how insane I switch my views of every character. Although this movie only really had four actors, all of them made the movie great and an instant classic. I personally did not like this crazy movie because of the outrageous twists and the headaches this movie gave me.
Drama Critique Boeing Boeing For Ms. Copland by Jeremy Thiffault, June 10th, 2009.   Boeing Boeing by French playwright Marc Camoletti was performed at the Port Mansion Theatre by the Lakeside Players, on Thursday June 4th, 2009. The play was directed by one of the Company’s founders, Paul Wintemute. This fast paced, light hearted, witty, award-winning farce was very well done, featuring strong performances from the characters; great set design and costuming. These all provided the audience with an evening of slapstick comedy about a roué with three mistresses.
