by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..MacFarlane has delivered a flaccid all-star farce that's handsomely dressed up with nowhere to go for most of its padded two-hour running time..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

ZIPPER :

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
