2 of 5

“..the film is laden (and leaden) with romantic comedy tropes from another eras - hooky coincidences, woodenly delivered lines..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]
2 of 4

“..That Awkward Moment has commitment issues: It lacks the courage of its bad taste..”
by Adam Graham [Globe and Mail]
1.5 of 4

“..take three horny guys, all twentysomethings, mix with a plot that was old last century, and serve to an audience so desperate for dick jokes..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..smart and sharp-tongued, homegrown indie romance Three Night Stand may be responsible for presenting the quintessential Canuck love scene..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..it's a Valentine's Day date movie that guys won't mind seeing, and women will find amusing enough and easy on the eyes..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..it has some good actors, and some quick dialogue, which also has the feel of real-life. But the plot forces things a bit, and the direction is uncertain; just when it seems willing to take some risks, it retreats..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

“..but never mind the bathroom jokes: this one's a stinker through and through..”

LATEST REVIEWS

PADDINGTON :

“..marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie..”
by Chris Hewitt [Empire Online]

WILD :

“.."Wild" incorporates beautiful direction, smart writing and brave acting to tell the story of a woman made feral by grief walking from her own darkness into her own light..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]

GRUMPY CAT'S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER :

“..is surprisingly funny, with the gleefully acerbic screenplay capturing the beloved Grumpy attitude..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT :

“..a lovely yuletide bauble of a Christmas special, all decked out in tinsel and surrounded by brand new toys..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

ZERO MOTIVATION :

“..the film often takes the form of a prank-filled campus co-ed comedy, flattening the narrative into a hormone-and-ego-fueled romp amid a volatile war..”
by Nick McCarthy [Slant Magazine]

BEFORE I DISAPPEAR :

“..too overwrought to really convince or resonate, yet assembled with enough flair to work as a solid calling card for its debuting helmer..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

AFTERMATH :

“..is a total mess..”
by Evan Saathoff [Badass Digest]

THE BABADOOK :

“..Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
