  • Writer-director Claudia Myers' clunky debut feature makes the case that first-timers should probably focus on either writing or directing. show more

  • You gotta give credit to any first-time direc tor who attempts an homage to classic screwball comedies on a shoestring budget, even if Kettle of Fish ends up not exactly being the catch of the week. show more

  • It's a sorry state of affairs when a goldfish and a frog (Ginger's prize specimen, unsubtly named Casanova) have more chemistry than a romantic comedy's human leads. show more
