Men In Black - C
Get Shorty - B
Addams Family Values - A- (I just love this one. I think it has so many great lines, and three spectacular comic performances from Angelica Huston ("I'm just like every modern woman trying to have it all. A loving husband, a family. I only wish I had more time to see out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade."), Joan Cusack ("So I killed. So I maimed. So I destroyed one innocent life after another. Aren't I a human being? Don't I yearn and ache... and shop? Don't I deserve love... and jewelry?") & Christina Ricci ("We're not shy, we're contagious.") I think Roger Ebert said it's a one-joke world and its just a question of whether or not you think the joke is funny. I do.
The Addams Family - B
I don't care for modern films. All crashing cars and close-ups of people's feet.

Have updated rankings with "For Love or Money" and have also changed star rating for "Men in Black II" because I remembered I liked the movie slightly more than I gave it credit for.

"For Love or Money" is very entertaining and very funny. It does tend to get a little too predictable for its own good in the last half, but it's still a good time.
