Review rate : C

“..was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..this movie enjoys starting every laugh with a dropped jaw..”
2.5 of 4

“..these anachronistic counter-culture types, meant to be oddly funny, are hardly a laugh riot..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : D

“..there was so much potential in this project, from concept to cast..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
Review rate : D

“..there are solid, often funny performances..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
Review rate : C

“..the laughter is served up naughty and nice, and frequently au naturel, earning it an R rating when perhaps RR would have been more appropriate..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..technically sound but undistinguished -- conjures bemused smiles early on, anyway, but too rarely delivers genuine laughs..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
“..offers the most familiar conflict it can think of as backdrop for the impending marital crisis..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : C

“..none of the hilarity is enough to keep Wanderlust from feeling like a late-night comedy-show sketch stretched to feature length..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
Review rate : C

“..most of it is pretty funny stuff..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
Review rate : C+

“..mined for cheap laughs or timely drama ages ago, complete with comical nudity and trippy hallucinogenic freakouts..”
by Nathan Rabin [AV Club]
2.5 of 4

“..may fail as satire, but its absurdist slant and eye for detail sustain it through its cruder passages..”
by Jesse Cataldo [Slant Magazine]
Review rate : A-

“..it's a pleasure to see Aniston thrive in her comedy zone..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C

“..funny, it also meanders..”
by James Rocchi [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..as the story starts getting somewhat mundane once the overused plot device is introduced that has the commune..”
by Edward Douglas [ComingSoon.net]
Review rate : D

“..actually, that seems a bit tricky, which may be why for every few jokes that hit in this story about a recession-battered New York couple finding themselves on a Georgia commune, one sputters and dies..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
