2.5 of 4

“..the movie is one hot mess, but the dynamite Cooper makes it work..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..the film swerves dizzily between fascination and revulsion, and it is perhaps a little too entertaining for its own good..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
3 of 5

“..is a good-to-great film, but it's sabotaged by a weak script and direction that fails to fully realize its challenging subject matter..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]

“..a great double stretch for an actor and Mr. Cooper plays both the smoldering Latif and the bombastic Uday with combustible energy..”

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]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
