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 ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS :

“..overall, Leprechaun: Origins is awfully disappointing, and offers little insight as to how this prequel fits into the Leprechaun world..”
by Kalyn Corrigan [Shock Till You Drop]

ARE YOU HERE :

“..there's no sign of the crisp, knowing writing, compelling narratives or sublime character development that are Weiner's hallmarks in this tepid and tentative story..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

CAM2CAM :

“..falls spectacularly short for the genres it hopes to pander in: slasher pic, soft-core, travelogue..”
by Daniel M. Gold [NY Times]

WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL :

“..When the Game Stands Tall fumbles in several ways, failing to make enough of a connection to convey its inspirational message..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
