Description: The large mystery about Andy Kaufman's work is in trying to figure out what's serious, what's an act, why he is doing what he's doing, and whether he even knows the differences himself. His performances are among those rare examples where you feel extremely uncomfortable watching them, but at the same time you can't pull yourself away because it's hysterical in a twisted and bizarre sort of way.

Viva Villaveien! #

Released 1/1/1989

Description: Viva Villa Street deals with a handful of neighbors who fully unaware manages to go to Gran Canaria at the same time. For many, this would be a nice, but for Swedish Reidar Frank (Brass Brännström), pensioner Sigurd Vatne (Sverre Hansen) and crazy Alice Lindblad (Elsa Lystad) this is the worst thing that should have occurred. After countless neighborhood feuds they all had, by coincidence, decided to travel to the Canary Islands to escape the unwanted case of Villa Road. Therefore, the disputes continue also in the vacation paradise of the another family members' nice despair. This surprisingly leads to a lot of funny episodes that include both issues with the travel company, absurd misunderstandings and intricate entanglement that eventually tie up to a cute successful movie.

Big News From Grand Rock Reviews:

A storyline set in the decline of the newspaper in one of today's most dire outposts- the Canadian tiny town- it's not Citizen Kane. It's Large News from Grand Rock.A tiny Canadian movie on the movie circuit, Large News from Grand Rock focuses on a tiny city newspaper that loses its main advertiser and comes to the brink of closure. The desperate editor, Leonard, looking for stories that will sell and coming up empty-handed, takes inspiration in the half-forgotten Bill Murray dud Larger than Life (1996) to fabricate a story. He later starts ripping off movies each week, and when one based on Extreme Measures (1996) draws in a big- town reporter, she quickly unravels the half-witted scheme.Big News from Grand Rock offers some small, genuine laughs, often capturing what the news can be like in a tiny town. When one person just purchased a lottery ticket and other sells squash, and when a class snake eat worms, you're into dull territory. One thing I noticed is that for a small-town newspaper, they have an unusually huge staff of writers. Usually it's just one guy. Peter Keleghan, the most recognizable actor in the movie to me, plays the resident dumb one, achieves a funny voice but doesn't offer much of his range. More on the down side, I wasn't impressed with the acting of our lead or the chemistry with the leading lady, whose inevitable sexual rendezvous seems tacked on. Still, this is an enjoyable tiny film.


Definitely has some moments! It type of grows on you. And has some constructive concepts for tiny city journalists!Good hero portrayals all around – even though the storyline gets a tiny over-wrought and tiny over-wordy – it is still fun. Our main hero is so lovable – and that's what keeps us looking and hoping he can save the day as well as himself. We root for him at the very outset of the movie.It does capture tiny city flavour. The greatest gags were around the DVD store. The computers in the newspaper office looked ancient – like from the early 2000's (couldn't figure that out?).


I attended a screening of this movie at the Magic Lantern Carlton theatre in Toronto this past Friday, and I would like to give a fast review of this movie with the hope that others will help it, as it is getting a very limited release at the moment. As a Canadian who has been a fanatic of Ennis Esmer from his role as Oz on The Listener, I was satisfied to explore that Ennis had the lead in this film, and premium points for this being a Canadian made movie that allows Canada to be Canada, rather than overtly pretend we are someplace else, which often happens in movies or on TV. This fictional city feels like it should be a tiny city in a lot of various places, and I think viewers will be reminded of whichever tiny city is nearest to them. If you watch the trailer, you receive a sense of the sort of humour you will receive throughout the film. If you watch it and search yourself laughing as I did, you will probably love this film. This movie was made with a relatively weak budget, which is evident as you watch, but it does an nice job at saying an entertaining storyline with hilarious characters. I definitely think this movie is deserving of a wide release across Canada and beyond, and I would love to buy it on DVD! I also think this should do really well if it were adapted into a TV series, as I wish to know more about these characters.
