Review rate : C

“..watching a film try to pass off misanthropic blunt-wittedness as ''edge''..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..the film is fast and often funny. And while it's not for children - really - I bet the adults who just spent a school year with them are going to love it..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
1.5 of 4

“..no charm anywhere..”
by Amy Biancolli [Houston Chronicle]
“..its comic rhythms are out of whack, and sloppy continuity and unfilled story blanks suggest ample post-production surgery on a pic that commenced shooting more than a year ago..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
Review rate : C-

“..equally bad movie..”
by Adam Graham [Detroit News]
2 of 4

“..draws slutty variations on Ho Ho Ho that should have added up to raunchy fun. Sadly, it only took about 10 minutes to wipe the smile off my face..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..doesn't fulfill the basic promise of its genre..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..a series of set pieces, some funnier than others..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
4 of 5

“..a refreshingly raucous comedy that comes surprisingly close to completely living up to its lack of conviction..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..a potentially "A" topic with a "C" result that would require considerable remedial writing to upgrade...”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..a fitfully amusing comedy that promises far more outrageousness than it actually delivers..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

LATEST REVIEWS

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
