REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..there's really nothing here except two appealing actors and an impression of what might have been - or could be, in some other movie..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
1 of 5

“..the movie doesn't work as a frank comedy of the lengths a couple will go to when dealing with infertility. It doesn't work as ... well, you get the idea..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..offers a few big laughs between ho-hum stretches of frenetic vamping..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
1 of 5

“..not working right should at least generate a few naughty laughs..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
Review rate : C+

“..is stuck between Judd Apatow's humane raunchiness and the American Pie series' smirky broadness..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..if you're thinking that this whole plot is a setup for a revolting sperm-related scene that rivals anything in "There's Something About Mary," you're right..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
1 of 5

“..a one-joke comedy about, well, the process of making babies..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
