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

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
