“..Sandler takes his weary formula - stupid voice plus crass characters equals big box office - and drives it into R-rated territory. Now he no longer has to hint at the disgusting stuff; he shows us. Over and over again..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

“..sadly, "That's My Boy" relies on caricatures, rather than characters, to make you laugh..”
by Ethan Gilsdorf [Boston Globe]

“..it's two hours of non-stop wince-inducing misfires, punctuated by Sandler's distinctively grating voice. It's a nearly intolerable experience..”

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
