$5 a Day
Good 83 Points 2008

A smalltime con artist reconnects with his reluctant son as they scam their way cross-country in $5 a Day. The whole thing has an understated lunacy to it that evokes a bygone era.
Indeed, it feels like an old-time movie set in the Rap Era.

$5 a Day has three main assets: classic Christo…

Very Good 95 Points 2009

This spurned love story succeeds by being insistently charming and more than occasionally funny. Cleverly conceived, crisply executed and charismatically performed, (500) Days of Summer is a small joy of a movie. Plus you’ve got to love the terrific dance number that brightens up the middle ree…

Awful 12 Points 2008

Truly, this movie was awful. I turned it off after only 10 or 15 minutes because I just couldn’t take it anymore. It doesn’t even deserve a review, but here I am giving it one. The rest of the review will be forthcoming!

17 Again
OK 83 Points 2009

Formulaic story, competent execution and charming performances make 17 Again a successful teen dramedy, and a decent way to pass the time for coach passengers of all ages.

Think of it as Heaven Can Wait meets High School Musical

2 Guns
OK 69 Points 2013

A merely OK movie can still be enjoyable if it’s got something outstanding about it. Primo buddies do the trick in 2 Guns. The rest of the cast and film? Less than stellar and just OK. Plus the title doesn’t help.

2 Guns is too blunt – so 2 speak.

I wanted to bump up my final summa…

21 Jump Street
Great 83 Points 2012

The 21st century 21 Jump Street bangs the gong — comedy style — by expertly exploiting high school and cop show cliches. Well mounted, creatively inspired and charismatically performed, it’s almost enough to give commercial crap a good name. OK maybe not, but it’s entertaining as hell.

22 Jump Street
Really Great 83 Points 2014

“Sequels Suck” doesn’t seem operative given how terrific 22 Jump Street is. This one literally jumps off from where its great origin movie ended. Ignore it? Hell, no. #22JumpSt cheekily imagines itself the next episode of the Jump Street serie…
