Everybody Wants Some!! Review

Excellent

Richard Linklater loosely follows on from two of his most acclaimed films with this lively university comedy set in 1980. It's billed as a "spiritual sequel" to his high school classic Dazed and Confused, which was set in the late 1970s. And it also represents an exploration of the next stage in the life of the central character from Boyhood. But even without those connections, the film is a fresh, funny, involving look at how young people react to that first flush of freedom.

It opens as Jake (Glee's Blake Jenner) arrives at his Texas university three days before classes start. He moves into a house with the rest of the baseball team, who immediately start tormenting him as the newbie. The alpha male is the swaggering star player McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), usually accompanied by his good-time sidekick Finn (Glen Powell). Over this raucous weekend, Jake navigates the rules of the house, including pranks, macho posturing, initiation rites, excessive alcohol and even a baseball practice session. There are also, of course, a series of colourful parties. And along the way he makes a connection with sexy theatre student Beverly (Zoey Deutch).

The film is packed with memorable characters, and the charming Jake is a terrific entry point for the audience. Jenner plays him as a smart, nice guy who isn't afraid to stand up to both the chucklehead jocks and the idiotic party boys. All of these guys are hilariously entertaining as they jostle for position in the house. The standout is Powell's talkative Finn, who is smarter than he looks. And Wyatt Russell has terrific presence as a woolly stoner with a secret. It's a lot of fun to watch the interaction between these guys, who are all in their late teens or early 20s, flexing their newfound independence by obsessing about drinking, drugs and sex.

'The Boy Next Door' Puts Jennifer Lopez's Sexuality Centre Stage


Jennifer Lopez Ryan Guzman

For her first film role in two years, Jennifer Lopez chose the sudsy romantic-stalker drama The Boy Next Door, which she also produced. And she admits there was something irresistibly relatable about the character which she plays.

"We knew we were making a popcorn thriller," she said, "but the character for me was something that seemed a perfect fit for right now. I really could relate to what she's been through, being at the point in her life where her relationship falls apart. She's left feeling that sense of worthlessness, like she doesn't belong anywhere. So I think people can understand making a mistake in a moment like that."

The Boy Next Door Review


OK

A cheesy TV movie ramped up with language and violence, this sudsy thriller is far more fun to watch than it should be. With its tepid spin on the plot of Fatal Attraction, the film strains to be a bunny-boiler, but entertains the audience because it's so preposterous that not a single moment is remotely believable. And since the cast refuses to play it straight, camping it up while smirking at the camera, it's enjoyable in all the wrong ways.

Jennifer Lopez stars as Claire, a high school teacher who has recently split from her husband Garrett (John Corbett) and is still getting used to life on her own with teen son Kevin (Ian Nelson). Then the astoundingly hunky 19-year-old Noah (played by 27-year-old Ryan Guzman) moves in next door with his invalid uncle (Jack Wallace) after his parents die in a fiery car crash. Super friendly, Noah quickly begins to help Kevin stand up to the school bullies and pursue the hot girl (Lexi Atkins). But Noah also begins to flirt relentlessly with Claire, and in a moment of neediness she gives in. While she sees this as a mildly transgressive restorative fling, Noah thinks it's true love, and pursues her tenaciously. And when Claire begins to trying to patch things up with Garrett, Noah takes Kevin out for a bit of gun practice.

Despite a tendency to drift into grisly violence, there's nothing edgy here. It's a swirling storm of innuendo and suggestion, with a strong sense of menace that never quite convinces us, even with a couple of gruesome plot points. This may be because the camera clearly loves Lopez so much that we know she's never in danger.

Jennifer Lopez's 'The Boy Next Door' Fails On All Levels


Jennifer Lopez Ryan Guzman

Maybe critics spoke too soon when they effectively declared Johnny Depp's Mortdecai as the worst movie of 2015 - already. Paramount is throwing another iron into the furnace of January offloads with The Boy Next Door - a thriller starring the R&B superstar Jennifer Lopez in her first acting role since Parker in 2013.

It's all rather formulaic fare and stars Lopez as a high school teacher who, in the midst of a divorce, has a one night stand with a younger neigbor, who goes on to develop a dangerous obsession with her.

He is far for the quiet boy next door she thought.

Step Up: All In Is Like A Family Reunion


Ryan Guzman

When the first Step Up appeared in 2006, the reviews were fairly scathing (it's rated only 19% on Rotten Tomatoes). But audiences loved it (83%), and the box office success spawned a sequel. Somehow we're now up to a fifth instalment in the franchise, as Step Up: All In opens this weekend in the UK and next week in America. So the question is what makes this series so successful? It certainly isn't the predictable plotlines.

Step Up All InFrom Left to Right: Briana Evigan, Adam G. Sevani and Ryan Guzman

"We have the top dancers in the entire world, pretty much," said Adam Sevani, who has appeared as Moose four of the five movies. "I guess what Step Up is about is having the best of the best and pushing the limit of what we did in the previous movies. We've definitely pushed the envelope with this one. We've got earth, wind and fire in there!"
