Allen drives me Crazy

For all those like me who've been terrified by some of Tim Allen's recent acting efforts (WILD HOGS, THE SHAGGY DOG), prepare to be a little more frightened: Tim Allen is now directing. Allen has signed on to make his feature directorial debut on the indie comedy CRAZY ON THE OUTSIDE. The film will star Allen alongside Ray Liotta, Carrie-Anne Moss, Julie Bowen and Kelsey Grammer in a laffer about a recent prison parolee who finds life on the outside even wackier than life in the klink. It's like THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION except in comedy form and starring former sitcom stars. Allen's only previous directing credit was a 1999 episode of "Home Improvement" and if you can direct the acting force that is Jonathan Taylor Thomas, you're a-OK in the world. Allen recently wrapped filming on David Mamet's REDBELT (holy cow, a Tim Allen movie I'm not dreading?!) and has the comedy THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY LEFAY coming as well. Allen is also reprising his voice role as Buzz Lightyear in Pixar's TOY STORY 3. Filming on CRAZY is expected to begin later this month in Los Angeles.

Galaxy Quest (1999, 8/10) kicks ass.

Is everyone is agreement that Galaxy Quest was actually a good Tim Allen movie? Highly underrated and proves he could possibly make good with an audience.

Between this and Redbelt, it seems like he's tired of doing safe kiddie movies and disney re-makes. That's fine with me. Believe it or not dude's funny. Ever heard his stand-up?

I taught Woody Allen was doing a remaxe of the 1999 classic Drive Me Crazy, that starred Vincent Chase.

Between Woody Harrelson and Tim Allen, I have far too many false alarms when I get my hopes up that there's some kind of WOODY ALLEN news. Bugh.
