Todd Phillips

Documentary guy turned teen comedy dude.

Indifferent Road Trip (2000) -- Well, it's got Tom Green in it, and Tom Green's almost always worth watching. Other than that, it's a slightly above average 90s-style teen movie.

Like It Old School (2003) -- Adults starring in a "teen movie" was a pretty decent idea. All the major players are funny, and the jokes don't let up too much.

Don't Like It Starsky and Hutch (2004) -- Great cast, pretty good director (and direction), lousy movie. It's a really good idea that doesn't take advantage of the idea itself. Instead of making actual jokes, they seem to be just shooting a regular Starsky and Hutch TV episode and hoping that somehow the actors will make it funny. And they don't.
