REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
2.5 of 5

“..this is a lot smarter and funnier than the considerably paler multi-character-spanning romantic comedy stinkers Garry Marshall has been churning out lately..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 5

“..the laughs are too infrequent and lazy to do the cast justice..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
Review rate : B-

“..the cookie-cutter behavioral tics are funny in an overly broad way, even if the dialogue is basically stand-up patter turned into glib, fast conversation..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 5

“..the actors offer gentle twists that take away some of the sting..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..story and collaborators succeed in making a courtship comedy that will entertain women and amuse men..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]

by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
3 of 5

“..relaxed yet lively..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..once the movie starts, it feels like an ad for the book..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..often hits its amusing marks, but with a weighty running time of two hours, it often feels more like a lecture than an intended romp..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..keeping the audience laughing - and caring - from start to finish..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]
“..is watching a few talented performers make do with the worst..”
by Mellisa Anderson [Village Voice]

by Bob Mondello [NPR]

LATEST REVIEWS

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
