1.5 of 4

“..without characters we can invest in, this "Hangover Meets Zack & Miri Make a Porno" is just the "porno," and entirely too tame for that, too..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
3 of 5

“..too many stories to juggle and conflicts to resolve, not all of them inherently humorous..”
by Christopher Null [Filmcritic.com]
Review rate : B-

“..this is an indie Adam Sandler comedy, and when its heroes are psyching themselves up for the big event, it's kind of funny..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..the movie keeps its balance better than its leering title might suggest..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
“..the jokey bits are occasionally funny..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
1.5 of 4

“..talk about rationalizations..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..more than just producing funny lines, they explore the concept like cultural anthropologists..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
3 of 5

“..make you laugh a little and get out, lickety-split..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..it's sleazy, shameful and worst of all not funny - the sort of moment that should cast a raunchy pall over the rest of the film..”
by Marc Mohan [Salon.com]
“..it's all very sweet and lightly comedic..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..a very likable cast and some terrific sketch-style comedy should please (if not deeply satisfy the lustful yearnings of) auds lured by the film's title..”
by John Anderson [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
