“The Statement” is an overly complicated chase film with many loose ends/plotholes. The opening is 1944 France in black and white and then moves to 1992 France in color.

FAMILY BUSINESS SYNOPSISFamily Business is a new late night reality series from SHOWTIME about an average guy trying to make a living in the adult entertainment industry. A hilarious blend of real-life absurd situations and eccentric characters, Family Business focuses on the charismatic Adam Glasser and his alter ego, “”Seymore Butts,”” who has created over 70 popular adult films. This show is for adult audiences only. The show uncovers the naked truth of a family whose business just happens to be adult entertainment. Family Business centers around Adam, a proud single dad who runs the family business with his sometimes meddling but well meaning mom, Lila, and cantankerous cousin, Stevie. The series follows Adam as he faces the same problems that many people encounter – running his own company, juggling a hectic schedule and looking for the love of his life. Adam’s life is like anyone else’s–almost. As an adult film producer, director and actor, his everyday challenges may be a little more unique than yours or mine. But you wouldn’t believe the hard work that goes into auditioning hot new talent and shooting the perfect scene. The show is executive produced by Arnold Shapiro and Allison Grodner, part of the team behind the CBS series “”Big Brother,”” and directed by Jay Blumenfield and Anthony Marsh.

If you haven’t seen “”Thirteen”” yet you are in for an interesting ride. This story of a good teenage girl gone bad is an intense look at what happens when you are young, impressionable and fall under the wrong influence. What makes this film all the more amazing is the fact that it was written by the film’s star Nikki Reed, when she was thirteen.
While the performances by Holly Hunter, Evan Rachel Wood, and Nikki were strong, my major complaint about the film is the story. It played out like a shopping list of teenage angst clich
