2 of 5

“..where it most disappoints is how it starts with good, raw materials, and miraculously turns itself into empty calories..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..too late to the Ponzi-scheme party to be topical, and not outrageous enough to take advantage of its own setups..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..this effort - veering wildly from broad comedy to sensitive drama - feels even more ungainly than most..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..predictable race-based jokes, many of which have the saving grace of actually being funny..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..is less a movie than it is an exercise in product branding..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..for anyone entering the filmmaker's comedic world for the first time, "Witness Protection" would make a terrible introduction..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
