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]

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

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
