Widow, trying to contact husband, opens a portal for demons to possess her daughters.The widow and her daughters deal with the disappointment of not being able to contact their beloved.

Based on a mediocre 1970s cartoon, the movie follows an all-girl rock band that takes on a sinister record company CEO who plans to put subliminal messages into pop music.A stinging satire of pop culture consumerism.

Attorney becomes involved with a drug cartel to score quick cash. The operation uses sewage trucks to transport drugs, falls apart, and he gets in deep trouble.It was received as a drama, but is in reality a VERY dark comedy. The lawyer refuses to acknowledge he is in over his head. He ignores constant warnings that to cross the cartel will lead to a grizzly death. The character suffers because his ego thinks he can fix an unfixable situation, and instead keeps digging the hole deeper.
Seems like another goofy comedy from David Wain. A Manhattan couple decide to live a 'simpler' life by joining a commune, but are unprepared for the new lifestyle.Not just a mockery of communal life, but a poignant look at socioeconomic status.

This reboot of one of the most effective horror films ever made, is essentially the same as the original.

A hot dog in a supermarket hopes to be stuck inside the hot bun next to him. The food view humans as gods taking them to the promised land.They learn otherwise, precipitating a crisis of faith.

(From the king of smart dumb movies.)
Director Paul Verhoeven took a successful sci-fi novel, and cranked up the mayhem with CGI to create a big dumb chaotic generic sci-fi shoot-em-up picture.But on another level, it is a satire replete with fascist-inspired imagery and nods to older propaganda films. The film skewers what he sees as America's fascination with and glorification of war, which leads to escalation of aggression, and pointless deaths.
A guy comedy with a dancing gopher, WASP villian, and both a working class and borish nouveau riche businessman hero.The heroes are looked down upon by the club's elites who try to keep the wrong element out of Bushwood. The movie exists to point out that snobs and bigots are reprehensible.
Two rock-loving dudes are given a phone booth time travel machine, and engage in a goofball romp across time.Movie is filled with throwaway jokes that only register if you recognize them as jokes.

My Balls!Put into just 130 cinemas, this movie grossed just $440,093 and was dismissed as an insipid comedy.

4 college girls rob a chicken restaurant to fund their spring break vacation.

Fantasizing that she and her friends are warriors fighting all sorts of monsters gives her empowerment and strength to fight back.
