3 of 4

“..with enough buoyant romance to satisfy audiences drawn to starry-eyed love stories and hopeful endings..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..when the film finally fades out, you may find yourself worrying about their child..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
3 of 5

“..well-paced and impressively polished, the movie shuttles us through major life moments with easygoing confidence..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..this formulaic indie might be hyped into modest theatrical business before finding its niche in home-viewing formats..”
by Alissa Simon [Variety]
“..the movie is a lot more fun when they're with these friends, but that's really only at the very beginning and briefly towards the end..”
by Edward Douglas [ComingSoon.net]
“..the funny wheel-spinning is replaced with just going through the motions..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B+

“..the childish stuff is unnecessary in a comedy for adults..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
3.5 of 4

“..presenting us with life in all of its vibrant, messy sprawl..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..mixes dramatic intensity with effortless naturalism that makes the film so charming..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..its groove but steadily accumulates heart and humor..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..it's too tame for the whooping crowds of women who made hits of the Sex and the City movies and Bridesmaids..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
Review rate : B+

“..goes on a beat or two too long, and lands in the obvious place, but it's filled with smarts and laughs and passion..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..give you a few big laughs, a little cry, and a sporadic shiver of recognition..”
by David Edelstein [New York Magazine]
3 of 4

“..for all of the hilarious, raunchy talk and contemporary feel, though, in the second half the movie gets stuck in some well-worn "When Harry and Sally Met Parenthood" grooves..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
3 of 4

“..as a result, boast a disappointingly underwhelming final 20 minutes - with the fake break-up-inspired final stretch coming off as needless and unnecessary..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
“..a better film around the edges, the central couple in "The Switch" is funnier, better acted and way more romantically plausible..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
