153. Harry and the Hendersons
: (✩✩½) - Live TV
- Finally saw this one. The Hendersons inadvertently bring home a sasquatch, then try to get rid of him. When the news starts reporting on a dangerous creature running around the city, the Hendersons try to get him back and keep him away from a guy obsessed with tracking down bigfoot. Lots of hilarity, hijinx and heartwarming family fun. Stars John Lithgow. Not my cup of tea, but at least I saw it. The makeup for Harry was quite good and stood out though. I don't know how they create life-like expressive faces for these creatures.
154. The Last Song
: (✩✩✩) - Live TV
- The entertainment world is abuzz with the news that Miley Cyrus has had sex and thinks it's magical. Within minutes of finding this out, I found myself watching The Last Song
, which stars her and her devirginizer Liam Hemsworth. The movie is about a troubled girl who's sent off to spend the summer with her father (Greg Kinnear) in a southern coastal town. There, she meets a boy who's rich parents don't like her. The title of the movie will make sense as the story progresses. It's also pretty obviously a Miley Cyrus vehicle, and as I was reading up on it, I was surprised to see that it was designed around her. She wanted to do a movie like A Walk to Remember
and got it. The screenplay was even cranked out before the novel to accomodate her schedule.
