Dinner theaters often produce shows that will appeal to a mass audience, and old Broadway musicals are the norm. So when I go to dinner theater, I’m usually familiar with the production. Last weekend was the exception to that rule, and it was refreshing to have no preconceived notions about the show I was about to see at Boulder’s Dinner Theater. In the spring, we saw “Cinderella” at BDT, and

Rated PG13 Directed by Shawn Levy Starring Steve Carell, Tiny Fey, Mark Wahlberg, Taraji P. Henson, Jimmi Simpson Heidi Illustrious Rating: 4/5 Word of Warning: Good clean fun. Reminiscent of a comedy from the late 80s or early 90s, “Date Night” doesn’t rely on the type of “shock comedy” that has become so popular, making this one okay for the older kids, but best for a date night.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love this show anymore, last night’s show had an ode to my all-time favorite movie, “Dead Poets Society.” So now it is now official: I will cry if they cancel “Community.” If you haven’t seen “Community,” it stars Joel McHale, most famous as the host of E’s “The Soup,” he also snagged a role as an FBI agent in the new Matt Damon flick,
The previews for this movie boasted, “brought to you by the creators of “˜Superbad,’” but this movie is very different. I never got around writing a review of “Superbad,” but I wasn’t a fan of the movie. It was occasionally amusing, but I found most of the jokes to be at best, sophomoric, and at worst, downright disgusting. Obviously, I had low expectations for “Adventureland.” Read the rest
