REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

“..what you hope for is not even close to what you get, and in this case we are left with a heartbreaking disappointment of a film..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..unshowy, imparting period flavor without overwhelming what is, ultimately, an underwhelming film..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2 of 5

“..this is one of those movies that never feels grounded in reality. You never sense any chemistry between the leads..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..the film doesn't end with a happily-ever-after fadeout but a tougher, emotionally satisfying resolution..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
0.5 of 4

“..like hell. The movie feels like a life sentence..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..it's the feel-bad film of the summer and an almost perfect example of how not to turn a book into a movie..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
Review rate : C-

“..in One Day, the words - many of them taken directly from the book - are never convincing..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 4

“..a frustrating film, never light enough on its feet to be cute, never heartfelt enough to achieve "You had me at 'Hello'"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..a beautiful movie, but beautiful in a way that life often is, not movies. Nothing is sudden or easy, either for the characters or for the audience, and there are no thunderbolts from the blue..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

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]
