With new twists and characters, the story of poor Rudolph, that outcast reindeer, is once again presented as an animated musical. The story may have changed, but the message remains the same: there is nothing wrong with being different.

Cast: John Goodman, Blaze Berdahl, Rhea Perlman, Jay Leno, Julia Child, Martin Short, Kenneth Mars, Walter Cronkite, Felicity Kendal, Charles Fleischer, Yeardley Smith, Rene Le Vant, Larry King
Make an animated cartoon, combine Walter Cronkite, dinosaurs, and a circus of stars' voices (John Goodman, Jay Leno, Rhea Perlman, and Julia Child, etc.), and the result is a so-so movie. It could have been so much better, but will probably be enjoyed by children.
|What Planet Are You From? 2000 R, 105 min.|
Director: Mike Nichols
Cast: Garry Shandling, Annette Bening, John Goodman, Greg Kinnear, Ben Kingsley, Linda Fiorentino, Judy Greer, Danny Zorn, Harmony Smith, Richard Jenkins
Out there in the cosmos is a planet, and on that planet are people who want to rule the universe; Earth is their next target. They are REALLY boring: they have no emotions and no genitals. They decide to send one of their own (Garry Shandling) to Earth, after fitting him with the appropriate body parts, to foster a child to assist in their quest (how that helps, this viewer is not sure). One problem on Earth is that, when aroused, his "equipment" makes a whirring noise, an irritating consequence of the equipment. He meets Susan (Annette Bening) and decides she's the one.
|The Wrong Guys 1988 PG, 86 min.|
Director: Danny Bilson
Cast: Louie Anderson, Richard Lewis, Richard Belzer, Franklyn Ajaye, Tim Thomerson, Brion James, Biff Manard, John Goodman, Ernie Hudson, Timothy Van Patten
Yes, there are even reunions for Cub Scout members, and at this reunion the five decide to go on a camping trip. That was a mistake, since they get involved in several misadventures, including running across childhood enemies and an escaped convict. Too poorly written and acted to be funny for these stand-up comedians, but it may appeal to those who liked the "Police Academy" series.
|The Year Without a Santa Claus 2006 TV, 95 min.|
Genre: Family / Comedy / Fantasy
Director: Ron Underwood
Cast: John Goodman, Chris Kattan, Ethan Suplee, Eddie Griffin, Delta Burke, Harvey Fierstein, Michael McKean, Carol Kane, Carson Kressley, Dylan Minnette, Lara Grice, Tracey Walter, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Jack LaLanne, Andrea Powell
The worst has happened: children have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas–or so Santa (John Goodman) believes. He decides to take the year off, and he will not deliver any gifts. This doesn't sit well with his most loyal elves, Jingle and Jangle (Ethan Suplee and Eddie Griffin), who try to prove to Santa that he is wrong. Unfortunately for them, Sparky (Chris Kattan) is making their job an awful lot harder. This story delivers loads of Christmas spirit. (Review by LW)
