The Peanut Butt...
Really Great 66 Points 2019

One of the best movies of 2019 suffers from a terrible title of four words that don’t normally go together. People tend to ignore movies this poorly titled. Pity. This movie’s greatness starts with its plot: a Down’s guy goes out on the lam, buddies up with a hard-bitten fisherman, rafts a river,…

Bull Durham
Great 66 Points 1988

Bull Durham set a new standard for sports movies. Jocks on screen had never been this smart, this sexy, this suave. It’s also a classic Susan Sarandon liberated-woman picture, here a JuCo English teacher with a thing for baseball players. She’s pretty and they’re dumb, until she runs into Kevin…

Masterminds
Good 83 Points 2016

Masterminds starts off rock-and-roll, but soon becomes dumb-and-dumber, only not so funny or charming. Loosely “based on a true story”, it oscillates between parody and homage, albeit more the former given its deep SNL roots. Unfortunately, TV-quality sketch comedy bits don’t a great movie make…

OK 17 Points 2014

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence pair nicely in the Smokey Mountains. Aristocratic domination of industry is an interesting backdrop, but this is more about the Cooper-Lawrence love story and Lawrence’s fairly contrived character who is not content to be a trophy wife that should have been. …
