REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

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]
