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

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
