Carrie Rickey

Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

In the annals of the affirmative, the Jim Carrey vehicle Yes Man doesn't quite pack the punch of, say, Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" or the closing monologue of James Joyce's Ulysses. Nor does it spring quite as high as Carrey's own Bruce Almighty or Liar Liar.
These days, holiday-themed films come in two flavors: sourball comedies in the Bad Santa vein and sugarplum hearthwarmers like This Christmas.
