On assignment, there's nothing like the reel thing

Postcard From Spring Training

March 03, 2007|By Peter Schmuck

When you work as hard as I do, it's hard to keep up on all the best films, but I felt it was important to carve a couple of hours out of my extremely busy schedule to see Reno 911!: Miami, if only because of the obvious geographic link to the Grapefruit League.

It's the cinematic version of the offbeat Cops spoof on Comedy Central, but it's a concept that's clearly better served in 30-minute increments. A half-hour in and I was ready for The Daily Show.

I think I'll have better luck tonight with Wild Hogs. You can't go wrong with a nature flick.
