“..wide-ranging genre appeal could see this teen comedy reach break-out proportions..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..unfortunately, wastes its opportunity and its talented players for a teen farce that's both unfunny and unsexy..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
4 of 5

“..this movie is smarter and better acted and just plain funnier than most of its predecessors in the my-first-time genre..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
“..quick and messy, fitfully pleasurable, full of promise but not quite adept at getting everyone off..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
“..outrageously funny highs amid lots of so-so filler, but stays buoyant and likable throughout thanks to the winning presence of "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza in the lead..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3.5 of 5

“..one of the best comedies of the year and one that may surprise just how easily it keeps the laughs in you coming..”
by David Crow [Den of Geek]
2.5 of 4

“..it's just one of the inspired choices that subverts the typical gender roles and declares that boys don't need to be the only ones having fun in an ultra-crass comedy..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
2.5 of 4

“..in that, "The To Do List" is neither supergood nor superbad, but passable doesn't exactly raise the bar..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..does Carey go too far? Duh. But why gripe when you can't stop laughing?..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

A GOOD MARRIAGE :

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

BANG BANG! :

“..wish they had used more logic than bullets to create the real 'bang bang'..”
by Lokesh Dharmani [Masala]

LEFT BEHIND :

“..Left Behind is flush with mysteries of a different sort..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

THE GOOD LIE :

“..it's a deeply touching story about survival, perseverance, and hope..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

ANNABELLE :

“..there is nothing in Annabelle that comes close to capturing a single moment of genuine fear, tension or even mild discomfort, beyond the occasional aural sting..”
by James Marsh [Twitch]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
