3.5 of 4

“..this lack of "wow" factor places added pressure on its lead star to hold our attention, and Tyson absolutely does..”
by Chuck Barney [San Jose Mercury News]
“..that's not to say this is a particularly great movie (or that the earlier version was, either). Yet as with almost everything else in her storied career, Tyson has finished this "Trip" with her dignity intact..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
Review rate : B

“..it's focused on Mrs. Watts' personal journey home, her escape from the small bubble she's come to know. As it is, it's wonderful to watch Tyson make that escape..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]
4 of 5

“..all the actors nail their parts, but Tyson runs the show..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

“..there are plenty of ways to spend your time and money, but "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" shouldn't be one of them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

WILD CANARIES :

“..in spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DUFF :

“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
