“..woefully short on humour plus a character that never manages to break out of one dimension..”
by Tim Evans [Sky Movies]
1 of 5

“..there’s none more woeful than this muddled “comedy” starring Simon Pegg and written by Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills..”
by David Edwards [Daily Record]
3 of 5

“..there's enough verve and imagination on show to make this debut feature from Kula Shaker's Crispian Mills worth sticking with..”
by Neil Smith [MSN Movies]
2 of 5

“..the slapstick set-pieces can be seen coming from miles away, while the overall gag-count is disappointingly low..”
by Terry Staunton [Radio Times]
“..the film seems to be a little bit of everything and not enough of anything - hence it’s on limited release..”
by Alison Jones [Birminghammail]
“..the film is not left wanting for ideas, with Jack finding the potential for death in the guise of Christmas Carollers, dirty socks and, yes, laundrettes..”
by Steven [Film Ireland]
“..it's clearly a labour of love - something lacking in so much of Hollywoodâ��s contemporary output - and definitely superior to much of it..”
by Kim Francis [Get Reading]
1 of 5

“..hold on to your comfort blanket and have the cloves of garlic handy..”
by Xan Brooks [Guardian [UK]]
1 of 5

“..exasperation eventually morphs into unrelenting pain, and there’s not a single, solitary laugh to be had..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
1 of 5

“..a fine stop-motion animation sequence, however, denies it an honest swing at worst-of-the-year status..”
by Robbie Collin [Telegraph]

LATEST REVIEWS

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
