4 of 4

“..to varying degrees, each of the picture's protagonists proves to be a flawed individual..”
by Kam Williams [NewsBlaze]
1.5 of 4

“..there's more humor, toying with stereotypes, playing around with miscommunication..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the performances are effective all around with director Kendrick quite moving..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : C

“..the movie starts off well enough with agreeable characters, passable dialogue, and the genial tone of an episode of 7th Heaven, but eventually devolves into over-the-top drama and a suffocating heavy-handedness..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..proves a particularly clunky, tunnel-visioned vehicle whose overbearing, overlong script nearly smothers the movie's quibble-free message: Fathers must be responsible. And what of the importance of mothers here? It often feels like a case of "Oh, them"..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..it's a blunt approach that filmmaker and lead Alex Kendrick (Kirk Cameron's "Fireproof") need not resort to as much as he does, given the ability he can flash for sentimental drama, not to mention wry humor..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

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]
