1.5 of 4

“..this movie got made at all demonstrates that Hollywood thinks that if it can design a project so as to yield half a dozen different digital sequences for the trailer, no one will much care about whether they add up to anything..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..smarter and less screwball than previous attempts at the material have been..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..it's more of an acquired taste than the average Ben Stiller comedy, but this eccentric family-friendly entry should find a significant core of admirers..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

KID CANNABIS :

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]
