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

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
