“..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]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
