You might skip this ‘Dinner for Schmucks’

It seemed promising to pair the always affable, handsome Paul Rudd once again with his Anchorman and 40-Year-Old Virgin co-star and comic go-to Steve Carell. Director Jay Roach’s comedy Dinner for Schmucks, though poorly titled, was adapted from the French film The Dinner Game, derived from the Francis Veber play of the same name....

Savor summer on Detroit’s RiverWalk and take a ride from Wheelhouse Detroit

Last weekend I finally made it down to the RiverWalk and for the first time had a chance to wander the 2.5 mile span from Cobo Hall where there’s an amazingly majestic view of the Ambassador Bridge to just beyond the spot where the Dequindre Cut begins. Detroit’s Riverfront may never rival New York’s...

The family dramedy stars an amazing ensemble cast led by Annette Bening and Julianne Moore who portray a lesbian couple and parents to Joni and Laser, played by...

Shakespeare returns to Starr Jaycee Park in Royal Oak July 22

Water Works Theatre Company is celebrating its 10th anniversary season this summer, and presenting the Shakespearean classic The Two Gentleman of Verona.

At Royal Oak Antique Garage Sale what’s old is new again

I’m sure any therapist could have a field day with this statement but – I blame my mother. She’s the sort who – while loving and nurturing as can be – just couldn’t wait to get rid of our old toys and anything she deemed out-of-date. She’s not a saver, you see. Not in...

Christopher Nolan dreams up ‘Inception’ to movie-goers delight

I walked into the Emagine Novi theater to preview Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Inception, with truly high expectations. It was earning comparisons to his earlier work, including Memento, a mind-bending and time-skipping film that stuck with me for years after seeing it. Images of its tattooed main character are burned into my brain. And...

In Detroit movie-going is more than a pastime, it’s a slice of history

Last weekend I made a snap decision. When I noticed my all-time favorite Alfred Hitchcock flick, Rear Window was showing at the Redford Theatre, I just had to see it in all its big-screen glory. I jetted out of my Ferndale apartment, hopped into the MIni Cooper and headed west on 8 Mile to...
