Some Girls Never Learn

Directed by: Jerzy Rose

Admission: $8

Beaming in from another dimension and high on helium, this psychedelic fantasy values weirdness and charm over a traditional story, and it’s all the better for it. Amelia Earhart appears as a god to a hapless academic named Wayne who found her leg bone at the bottom of the ocean. She enlists him to protect her from his best friend Dennis, a high school science teacher who moonlights as a wacko veterinarian, and whom she claims is destined to destroy her. The cast, lead by Jared Larson and Mike Lopez, warm up the hilariously futile dialogue, and the radiant cinematography, handmade set design, and sheer creative fortitude make this trip a truly fun ride. (D. Jerzy Rose, 2011, 80 min.)
