“..time has not been kind to the thin charms of this Shrek wannabe..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..this wasn't just a comically fractured fairy tale, but one with a compellingly fractured narrative as well..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..there's nothing especially noteworthy about Hoodwinked Too! in its 3-D iteration..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..seems designed to be forgettable - the type of throwaway kid-friendly movie that comes out a month or two before expectations start to rise in the summer..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..s all-sugar rush, its potential to charm adults and their young charges routinely drowned out by a bigger/faster/jokier ethos..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..one of the most obnoxious and least necessary animated films of the century thus far..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..more peevish than plucky..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1 of 4

“..is that rarity - a film in which practically nothing works..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
1 of 4

“..is memorable for being one of the most obnoxious animated movies of recent years..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..has prettier colors, a beefed-up voice cast, and if the plot's no more original than in the first film, at least there are more gags..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..feels as computer-generated as its creepy, talking-ceramic-toy style of animation..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..despite cosmetic surgery, this 3-D sequel reprises the original's formulaic failings: infantile humor, unrelenting wisecracks and popcult references, and flat characters who don't engage one's eyes or interest..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2.5 of 4

“..are irreverent, fast, funky and funny..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

LATEST REVIEWS

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
