“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
