As fresh and side-splitting today as it was when it entered theaters during a much different era.
Although the humor is variable, the romance is consistent and that allows the film to go down smoothly even if it takes an inordinately long time to do so.
It’s supposed to be a screwball comedy but someone forgot to include the laughs.

By failing to embrace the absurdity of the situation, the movie sets itself up as just another summer blockbuster-of-the-week.
An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.
The biggest crime of "The Spy Who Dumped Me" isn’t its dearth of humor or reliance on an unimaginative espionage plot but the way it wastes the talents of its leads.
As the credits roll with most of the major plot threads unresolved, the frustration is palpable when one recognizes that there will be no second installment.

"Sin Reaper" is proof that, no matter how bad you think a horror movie is, there’s always room for something worse. This is that “worse.”
Unsentimental, non-glamorized, and unclouded by the usual overlay of rose-colored nostalgia, this is a raw but rewarding motion picture.
Although the screenplay is at times antiseptic, few roles could be better to showcase the capabilities of the talented Kelly Macdonald.
