2 of 5

“..you may find yourself cutting this disappointingly shallow film some extra slack..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
4 of 5

“..there are many bits and pieces in the drama that will be instantly recognizable and universally identifiable as signs of aging..”
by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice]
1.5 of 4

“..the result is a comedy-drama that's depressingly superficial, corny and entirely predictable. In short, Late Bloomersis blooming awful..”
by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..that movies crafted to pander to older viewers..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..suffers from a stridently jaunty jazz score, and some gags that don't rise above sitcom level..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
3.5 of 5

“..successfully blended the funny with the sad to create something of a rarity: a rom-com that actually has something to say..”
by Matthew Pejkovic [Matt's Movie Reviews]
1 of 5

“..over the course of a drawn-out 90 minutes, this long-married couple fights, separates and reconciles, though their prickliness is decidedly diluted..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
3 of 4

“..moves at a poky pace even by American indie standards..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2.5 of 5

“..at least there isn't a laugh track..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..all chirped about by a Greek chorus of familiar BBC faces..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B-

“..a little too easy, but its cast makes it worth a look, even so..”
by Alison Willmore [AV Club]

LATEST REVIEWS

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
