The Wedding Ringer - Alternative Trailer

A wedding is a time for all of your friends and family to come together and celebrate your union with another person and the start of your new family. But for someone like Doug Harris (Josh Gad) who has no friends and is engaged to a woman deemed 'too good for him', it's looking to be a nightmare. With the day of the wedding drawing steadily closer, Doug is convinced to hire a best man and group of groomsmen, and calls upon the services of Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc. From there, Doug and Jimmy have a week to establish themselves as 'best friends' and make themselves look like people that have spent the best part of their lives together. But in the process of Bachelor Parties and wedding planning, it starts to look like Doug's new friends are turning him into a completely different person.

The Princess and the Frog Review

Gorgeous imagery and an energetic story make this one of Disney's most enjoyable animated features. And the fact that the studio has returned to an eye-catching hand-drawn style is very good news for an industry that's in a visual rut.

In 1940s New Orleans, Tiana (voiced by Rose) has grown up with a dream to have her own jazz joint. But as a young black woman she has to work two jobs to make ends meet. One day the sinister Facilier (David) turns a visitor, Prince Naveen (Campos), into a frog as part of an elaborate plot to take over the city. But things don't go as expected Tiana reluctantly kisses the frog, and soon they're lost in the bayou with only a trumpet-playing gator (Wooley) and a lovelorn firefly (Cummings) to help them.

Not Easily Broken Review

Not Easily Broken is a Tyler Perry movie without the Tyler Perry. To be fair, Perry did contribute a half-assed pull quote that is proudly displayed on the front cover of the film's DVD case. Of the film, Perry says, "It's a powerful movie." As a counterpoint, I say, "It's insipid, inspirational gobbledygook."

The film has all the attitude of a standard Urban Professionals in Transition movie (think Brown Sugar or The Brothers) and is made with all the over-pronounced storytelling and shove-it-down-your-throat moralizing of a cinematic church tract. The title refers to the three-way bond between a husband, wife, and God, and the film is wrought with all the stereotypical signposts of a "We Need Jesus" story -- the couple with "no time for sex," who "can't pay the bills," and "aren't quite ready to have kids" discovers that their "marriage is on the rocks" and must work to save it, thereby solidifying their "spiritual bond." Yuck.

Dirty Laundry Review

What is Dirty Laundry? It's Soul Food plus In & Out as if directed by Tyler Perry. As a large, loud, funny, small-town African-American family comes to terms with the closeted gay man in their midst, there's plenty of laughter, recriminations, and tears to go around. It's a jam-packed 100 minutes, never earth-shattering, but certainly not boring.

Upscale New York magazine writer Patrick (Rockmond Dunbar) finds his comfortable life interrupted when Gabriel (Aaron Grady Shaw), the ten-year-old son he didn't know he had, shows up unescorted at his door. With no other choice, Patrick takes the boy back to his southern hometown, where he is something of a prodigal son, having basically abandoned his family in order to live life as a gay man in the big city. His chain-smoking force-of-nature mother Evelyn (Loretta Devine) isn't exactly happy to see him, and neither is his sister Jackie (Terri J. Vaughn) or his jealous brother Eugene (writer/director Maurice Jamal). They feel betrayed by him and haven't yet accepted his homosexuality. Eugene, for one, is prone to calling Patrick "fancy," a code word for everything he hates about this guy who used to be his brother.

The Cookout Review

About five minutes into The Cookout, a pair of reporters quizzes first-round NBA pick Todd Anderson (Quran Pender) on how it was like to come up from the ghetto. Anderson tells the reporters that he's lived in the same suburban house all of his life, and that his family has raised him well -- that his life hasn't been all hard knocks and thug life. At that moment I discovered two things about The Cookout. Number one: It was going to make some important social statements in a low key way. Number two: It wasn't going to be a funny movie.

The Cookout is a comedy-drama about a ton of interesting social dynamics: About the potential backlash of instant fame and fortune (and the resulting intra-urban pressure not to succeed), about the endless small stereotypes that white people make about black people (and the endless small stereotypes that black people make about white people), and about the need for people, black or white, to be true to themselves.
