CALENDAR Next page i ii ,il !! ,i / Belanger, left, and Chittister agree: MIB II is worth seeing, even if it barely I' Sometimes, being funny is 'Men in Black H': Thumbs up despite lack By Jeff Belanger and Max Chittister Cabinet Press staff Jeff: As part of our Wicked Cool Summer Blockbuster Movie Review Series, Max and I saw "Men in Black II." Max, first impressions? Max: That was an incred- ibly funny movie. I thought the plot was lousy, but I think I don't care. And you? Jeff: I agree. This is prima- rily a comedy. It does a great job at being funny, but it hardly qualifies as an action movie. Max: None of the action se- quences were especially good. The opening sequence with a giant worm eating sub- way cars was all right, but the rest were too short and not exciting enough. Jeff: But, wow, is this movie funny. Most of the dia- logue is quick and well-writ- ten. Tommy Lee Jones is great at deadpan humor. "My wife and I went to Vegas and saw Sigfried and Roy fly a white tiger around a room. Your act is nothing special, Junior." Max: Which is important when everyone else in the movie is completely insane. The pace is fast; there's a lot going on, with visual gags that you almost miss and one-lin- ers fired off in the back- ground. I think the pace might have been too fast. There wasn't enough time to develop any of the fight scenes, and I think a lot of good character bits got dropped halfway through. Jeff: We get to know Will Smith's and Tommy Lee Jones's characters well. I par- ticularly enjoyed how Will Smith started out as the know-it-all agent, then slips back to his side-kick persona from the first movie when Tommy Lee Jones returns to the duo. Max: I didn't like that. Sure, Will gets some funny lines, but I preferred the ul- tra-competent agent. I think it would have been more in- teresting to see both him and Tommy be good at their jobs. Jeff: Right, sure. Now, time for a babe alert. Lara Flynn Boyle doesn't need to act well in this movie. I wanted to see her on screen, regard- less of what she had to say. Max: We need to get you a girlfriend. Jeff: Do you have Lara's number? Max: Yep. It's 555-LOUSY- ACTRESS. I'm glad you don't think she needed to act well, because lord knows she didn't. Jeff: The award for best performance by a talking ani- mal certainly goes to Frank, the singing pug-dog with a voice you only get from smok- ing two packs a day. Max: I agree wholeheart- edly. He was in the movie enough to be very funny, but not so much that the act wore thin. Much like the worm guys. Jeff: Yes, they're back in this movie as well, and I was glad to see them. Holywood sequels often gratuitously re- gurgitate characters to lure people back to the box office, but the worm guys deserved a comeback. Who doesn't Andy's 'Summer of WILTON CENTER-- Andy's Summer Playhouse begins its season, "Summer of SuperHeroes" has begun with its first mainstage production, "7 Supermans," written by Rinne Groff and directed by Alice Reagan. In a mythical land called New Hampshire, the farmers are in trouble. Evil bandits loot their land, take their food and generally wrecktheir lives. Fed up with bowing meekly in the face of this oppression, the farmers go to the big city in search of Supermans, a dying breed of men and women in blue tights and red capes who really know how to save the day.
