REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Don't waste your weekend watch this movie.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..too bad the writing lurches, the acting falters and the directing fumbles for tone. Too bad the movie never generates any real steam; it may be set during the dog days, but no one ever sweats, either literally or figuratively..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..there is no character insight allowed by the bumper-car storytelling..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
1 of 5

“..the movie's libido feels teleported in from other eras - maybe the 1980s, when a flirty spot wasn't a gym or an ATM..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
1 of 5

“..maybe with a different cast, a different story, a different combination of couplings, the movie could have been better..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..it is absolutely terrible..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..it fails to channel those waves shimmering off the pavement into sexual energy - a shame, given that that's the central topic..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

“..a stale noodle kugel..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

LATEST REVIEWS

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 :

“..the rest was a blur of weak slapstick, one over-dyed moustache and vague sexism, ageism and sizeism..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

CHILD 44 :

“..unrelentingly grim, plodding, and close-to-incoherent adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's best-selling mystery..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

UNFRIENDED :

“..a flashy new coat of paint for the "found footage" genre of horror movie, replacing wobbly handheld cameras with webcams and Skype. Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we've seen..”
by Jacob Hall [NY Daily News]

MONKEY KINGDOM :

“..these gorgeous-looking films are so much more than chronicles of nature. They have a heart and an insight that's remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ALEX OF VENICE :

“..although it's enjoyable, actor Chris Messina's directorial debut is somehow less than the sum of its parts, wading only through the shallow end of familiar human conflicts resolved too conveniently to satisfy..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

TRUE STORY :

“..lightweight script doesn't help a grandiose premise..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT :

“..plays like a dorm-room answer to modern war films, complete with the constant profanity and masculine hysterics that pass for impact in an immature script..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

THE ROAD WITHIN :

“..three superb young actors try but fail to bolster a thin script..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

BEYOND THE REACH :

“..it isn't nearly as much creepy fun as it sounds like..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE SQUEEZE :

“..between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze"..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
