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

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
