Fast & Furious 6

17th May 2013 -

 Movie Review

The most impressive thing about the sixth entry into this noisy franchise is that it's both more preposterous and more self-important than ever before. Which is no mean feat. The cast and crew clearly went...

This Is 40

15th February 2013 -

 Movie Review

This overlong comedy is so episodic that watching it is exactly like sitting through five episodes of a sitcom back-to-back. It's funny and enjoyable, with characters we enjoy watching, but they continually spiral back to...

Bridesmaids

23rd June 2011 -

 Movie Review

Kristen Wiig finally gets her chance to shine in a lead role with this hilarious comedy. The film veers a bit wildly between silly playfulness and extreme rudeness, but it keeps us hooked by maintaining...

 News

Funny People

28th August 2009 -

 Movie Review

Apatow is a superb writer-director, but his increasing running times are evidence of an irritating self-indulgence. Despite this film's sharp dialog and terrific story, its bloated, undisciplined editing keeps it from being a classic.George Simmons...

Year One

3rd July 2009 -

 Movie Review

The filmmakers and cast find a few great laughs in this flimsy premise, but the whole film is so underdeveloped that it hardly seems to be up there on screen at all.In a prehistoric woodland...

Nixon

20th August 2008 -

 Movie Review

History has not been much kinder to Nixon the movie than it was to Nixon the man. Grossing under $14 million domestically, the $50 million movie was an enormous box office flop (what 1995-era family...

Knocked Up

1st June 2007 -

 Movie Review

What separates the films and television series of Judd Apatow from the rom-com epidemic (I feel that term is fair) is a singular word: growth. Apatow's works spend time with their characters, main and supporting,...

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

21st June 2006 -

 Movie Review

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift plays like the archetypal Western. A newcomer arrives in town, upsets the locals, plays with hearts, and rides around a lot before a final "this town ain't big...

The 40 Year-Old Virgin

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

In The 40 Year-Old Virgin, budding comedian Steve Carell plays a geeky middle-aged virgin. This is not a stretch for Carell, because in his acting career, he really is a virgin. Until his breakthrough role...

Any Given Sunday

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Football is as engrained in our society's mores as deeply as war, family values, and politics -- at least that's what Oliver Stone would like you to believe. To back up this statement, Any...

Where's Marlowe?

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

If you're going to make yet another mockumentary of something, it's good to pick a topic that hasn't been done to death, at least, and that's where Where's Marlowe? manages to succeed. Parroting the...

U Turn

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

I can't imagine U Turn in any director's hands except Oliver Stone's. Breaking free from his political obsessions, Stone explores new territory, giving the material a stark edge, innovation, and a thick, memorable atmosphere....

The Blackout

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

One of these days, I'll make good on my promise never to rent another Abel Ferrara movie. King of New York and Body Snatchers notwithstanding (and Bad Lieutenant is only fit for a single,...

Natural Born Killers

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Violence got the star treatment in the early '90s. With much of America feeling powerless to stem the crime and gang culture that seemed to be on the rise, we began to react to the...
