Here Comes The Boom (2012 film)
Star Rating:         It can be argued that Here Comes the Boom has its heart in the right place. That doesn’t change the fact that it plays like a cross between a second-tier …

'Seven Psychopaths'
Star Rating:         That Seven Psychopaths is twisted, there can be no question. As to whether or not it’s successful, that’s open for debate. Here is a movie …

'To Rome With Love' Directed By Woody Allen

Moonrise Kingdom
Star Rating:         I know that somewhere within Moonrise Kingdom is a charming and poignant coming-of-age story. Unfortunately, whatever potential it had was ruined by …

American Reunion
Star Rating:         What I appreciate about the American Pie films is that, beneath the raunchiness and juvenile slapstick humor, there rests a kernel of truth. American …

Casa de mi Padre
Star Rating:         Casa de Mi Padre is the most tedious film of its kind since MacGruber – a strained effort that has little to go on apart from its one-joke premise, …

The Innkeepers
Star Rating:         I’ve noticed that when a filmmaker has the temerity to develop horror movie characters beyond what would be required of them in slashers, which …

The Big Year directed by David Frankel

Bucky Larson Born To Be A Star

Horrible Bosses
Star Rating:         Why do people think movies like this are funny? I’m not posing a rhetorical question; I really want to know what it is about these kinds of comedies …
reviewed Bridesmaids. May 14, 2011

Star Rating:         I’m not going to make this about how women can be just as crude as men, since I’ve personally never believed otherwise. I guess I’m …
reviewed Arthur. April 09, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
Star Rating:         I won’t dispute the greatness of the original 1981 version of Arthur. I will say that, in its own right, this 2011 remake is funny and often times …
reviewed Hop. April 05, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
Star Rating:         Hop is no more or less than an innocent, colorful kid’s movie about talking bunnies and candy. If you’re reading this, you’re probably …

The Butcher, the Chef, and the Swordsman
Star Rating:         The Butcher, the Chef, and the Swordsman is a cataclysmic mess – a story that seems intentionally made to be as aggressive and incoherent as possible. …

Hall Pass
Star Rating:         The simple fact is, I’m just not a fan of the Farrelly Brothers. I have to admit that right at the start so that you’ll understand why I …

The Green Hornet (2011 movie)
Star Rating:         You know something is wrong when the worst character in The Green Hornet is The Green Hornet himself. As portrayed by Seth Rogen, we see a twelve-year-old …
reviewed Morning Glory (2010). November 12, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
It isn’t often you see a film in which every actor is painfully misdirected. Rachel McAdams performs most of “Morning Glory” as if she were a little girl on a bad sugar high, always …

MEGAMIND (3D Animated Movie)
Part of what makes "Megamind" so enjoyable is that it's both an homage to and a parody of "Superman." In this version, not one but two doomed planets send a newborn son to Earth. …

Easy A
It's easy to like a character, but it isn't often you come across one that you would want to actually be friends with, or maybe even wish you could be like. For me, such a character is Olive Penderghast …

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
If you love action, if you live for comedy, if you get a nostalgic high from the electronic beep-boop sounds of eight-bit arcade games like "Pac Man" and "Space Invaders," then "Scott Pilgrim vs. the …

Dinner for Schmucks
I'm missing something here. I understand that the real schmucks of "Dinner for Schmucks" are played by Bruce Greenwood, Larry Wilmore, and Ron Livingston, not Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, and that means …

Ramona and Beezus
Ramona Quimby doesn't mean to cause trouble. If anything, her intentions are purely honorable. It's just that ... well, she's nine years old; she has a lot of energy, her imagination is vivid, and her …
reviewed Toy Story 3. June 18, 2010
Toy Story 3
What has always appealed to me about the "Toy Story" films, aside from the fantasy that toys are secretly able to speak, is that they add genuine emotion to scenarios real toys find themselves in. In …

posted in Movie Hype
MacGruber (2010)
The best thing about the "MacGruber" skits on "Saturday Night Live" is that they end after a minute, no more than a minute and a half. The writers are smart; they know that no additional time is required …

Furry Vengeance (2010)
