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

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]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
