THE BIG WHITE
Outstanding performances are delivered by an all-star cast in this quirky black comedy centered on Paul Barnell (Robin Williams), a down on his luck Alaska travel agent who's on the brink of bankruptcy and whose beloved wife, Margaret (Holly Hunter), is on the brink of insanity.
So what's a nice guy with good intentions but bad business sense to do' The answer lies frozen in a dumpster outside of Barnell Great Escapes—a dead body Paul hopes to pass off as his long-lost brother Raymond (Woody Harrelson) and then collect on the life insurance. Unfortunately, investigator Ted Watters (Giovanni Ribisi – Lost in Translation) who's anxious to transfer back to the lower 48 with his girlfriend (Alison Lohman – Where the Truth Lies), isn't about to let Barnell walk away with a million bucks. Adding to Paul's avalanche of problems are two aspiring hit men-turned-kidnappers (Tim Blake Nelson and W. Earl Brown) and the stunning return of the supposedly dead Raymond, who now has an ax to grind with his brother. Desperation is running high in the "big white," and if Paul is smart, he'll blow the snow, take the money and run…to South America.
THE LAST DAYS OF FRANKIE THE FLY
Frankie (Dennis Hopper) is a low-level mob associate known as "The Fly"—since, like a fly, he can do no harm to anybody. Being so peaceful, Sal (Michael Madsen), his boss, never sends him for any of his brutal 'missions,' sending Vic (Dayton Callie), his right-hand man instead.
One day, Frankie is assigned to collect an old debt from Joey (Kiefer Sutherland), a porno filmmaker and compulsive gambler deeply in debt to Sal. There Frankie meets Margaret (Daryl Hannah), a porno actress with whom he falls in love. To further her career, Frankie makes a personal agreement with Joey that will allow him to write the script for Margaret's next film, a serious one this time.
Trouble begins when Sal discovers he's been fooled and plots revenge. Not a single one of Frankie's friends will be spared…
This entertaining and highly comic film features a surprisingly warm and tender performance from Hopper, which should delight and surprise his many fans.
SCHOOL FOR SEDUCTION
When gorgeous Italian temptress Sophia Rosselini's (Kelly Brook) School for Seduction arrives in Newcastle, four friends—each hoping to release their inner sex goddess—sign up for an education in the 'seductive arts.' Taking their cue from sultry Sophia, the newly confident women unleash themselves upon their unsuspecting partners with lustful abandon—winding up in some unexpected and hilarious situations!
Witty and wickedly sexy, BBC Films calls it "…shamelessly crowd-pleasing…" and "A raucous, warm-hearted comedy…"
INSIDE MONKEY ZETTERLAND
It's another typical day for wannabe screenwriter Monkey Zetterland. His bored girlfriend dumps him. His neurotic mother is badgering him—again. Factor in a menagerie of terrorist neighbors, quirky stalkers and other assorted oddballs…and Monkey's life is a real zoo! With a colorful star cast, this is an offbeat yet genuine look at love, acceptance and the importance of family—no matter how unconventional it is.
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM 2
The Two Coreys return as Dinger (Corey Haim) and Bobby (Corey Feldman) in this hilarious sequel to Dream a Little Dream. When a pair of magical sunglasses arrive at the door, their mundane lives in L.A. get a crazy twist—but soon enough, they've got thugs on their trail who want the valuable pair for themselves. Under hot pursuit, it's one crazy antic after another as the troublesome twosome scramble to keep their hot commodity out of the wrong hands.
SPIES, LIES, AND NAKED THIGHS
In this hilarious spoof of spy films, Alan (Ed Begley Jr., For Your Consideration), a U.N. translator, and his kindergarten teacher wife, Beverly, get roped into helping foil a presidential assassination plot by an unlikely G-man—who just so happens to look like Alan's old college buddy, Freddie (Harry Anderson, Harvey, TV's Night Court). But before "Freddie" can finger the real hired-gun—a cold-hearted killer with a penchant for using kitchen tools to do the deed—he, Alan, and Beverly must first rule out some strange and unusual suspects!
