Gregg Araki doesn't make simple movies. They're usually trippy, sexy, homoerotic, surreal and have TONS of nudity. Kaboom follows in the same vein as The Doom Generation or Nowhere but has a decidedly sci-fi feel to it. IF you like Gregg Araki, you're going to like this movie without a doubt. If you're a nudophile, you're going to LOVE this movie thanks to skinful appearances by Juno Temple, Haley Bennett, Roxane Mesquida, Nicole LaLiberte, Ann Magnuson and Kelly Lynch. It is an eyeful.
Kevin Covais -- the bespectacled teenage crooner who earned the nickname "Chicken Little" on the fifth season of "American Idol" -- makes his big-screen debut as a prospective college student in this comedy helmed by first-time director Deb Hagen. When three high school seniors (Covais, Drake Bell and Andrew Caldwell) visit the campus of a local university, they embark on an outlandish weekend full of parties, booze, sex and shenanigans. Also starring Haley Bennett, Camille Mana, Nathalie Walker.
A has-been '80s rock star (Hugh Grant) is given a chance to pull himself out of "where-are-they-now?" hell when he's tapped to pen a duet for himself and music's reigning queen of pop. There's just one problem--he's never written lyrics before. With only a few days to craft a hit, Grant recruits a pretty and offbeat "plant lady" (Drew Barrymore) with a way with words and finds that their unlikely collaboration may be producing more than just beautiful music. Charming romantic comedy also stars Kristen Johnston, Haley Bennett.
