COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Director (feature film)

1.
Julie & Julia (2009)
Before Rachael, before Emeril, there was Julia, the woman who forever changed the way America cooks. But in 1948, Julia Child was just an American woman living in France. Her husband's job has brought them to Paris, and with her indefatigable spirit, she yearned for something to do. Fifty years la
2.
Bewitched (2005) as Director
Out in California's San Fernando Valley, Isabel is trying to reinvent herself. A naïve, good-natured witch, she is determined to disavow her supernatural powers and lead a "normal" life. At the same time--across town--Jack Wyatt, a tall, charming actor is trying to get his career back on track. He sets his sights on an updated version of the beloved 1960's situation comedy "Bewitched," reconceived as a starring vehicle for himself in the role of the mere-mortal Darrin. Fate steps in when Jack accidentally runs into Isabel. He is immediately attracted to her and her nose, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the nose of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played Samantha in the original TV version of "Bewitched." He becomes convinced she could play the witch, Samantha, in his new series. Isabel is also taken with Jack, seeing him as the quintessential mortal man, with whom she can settle down and lead the normal life she so desires. It turns out they're both right--but in ways neither of them ever imagined.
3.
Lucky Numbers (2000) as Director
Local television weatherman Russ Richards is on the verge of losing his shirt. What money he doesn't squander on his own lavish lifestyle he loses in an unsuccessful snowmobile dealership he owns in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Desperate to avoid financial ruin, Russ schemes with Crystal Latroy, the station's lotto ball girl, to rig the state lottery drawing. The numbers come up right, but everything else starts to go wrong as the plan starts to unravel and turns downright ugly.
4.
You've Got Mail (1998) as Director
Kathleen Kelly owns a small children's book store, but is coming under competition from Joe Fox's giant Fox Books, a megastore with a cafe and discounted books. The two become arch rivals, without realising that the romance they are conducting anonymously on the internet is with each other.
5.
Michael (1996) as Director
When rumor of Michael's existence reaches the National Mirror, washed-up journalist Frank Quinlan smells a page-one scoop. True or not, it's his job to track down this alleged angel, and bring him back to Chicago in time for Christmas. But his fiesty boss won't let him go alone. He sends Quinlan on assignment with angel expert Dorothy Winters and Huey Driscoll, another jaded reporter who would have been canned years ago had he not rescued Sparky, a mongrel that has become famous as the paper's prized mascot. As the trio travels to Iowa, each believes the trip is a colossal hoax until they come face-to-feather with Michael. He smells like cookies, acts like a playboy and tosses off miracles when everyone least expects them. As Quinlan and Dorothy search for the incontrovertible proof they need not to believe in Michael, Michael sets out against all odds to get Dorothy and Quinlan to believe in each other.
6.
Mixed Nuts (1994) as Director
Christmas is only hours away, and Philip and his dedicated staff are about to go just a little crazy. Philip is a clumsy do-gooder who runs Lifesavers, a suicide prevention hotline service in the funky beach community of Venice, California. Unfortunately, Lifesavers is going to be evicted so the landlord can turn the building into a condominium complex. Philip, however, remains optimistic. He always sees the light at the end of the tunnel, even though it's inevitably the headlight of the next oncoming train. Philip's Lifesavers is a place where the rescuers need help, where the lines of communication are hopelessly tangled, where anxious callers get cut off. Here, disorder is the order of the day, particularly on Christmas Eve, when people can become so overwhelmed by all that Yuletide cheer that there's only one thing to do--reach for the phone and call for help.
