The transgressive element is edgy and at times amusing, but it wears thin quickly.

This is what ‘80s comedies were and all of them, "Better Off Dead" included, are more valuable today as time capsules than as artistic endeavors.

Worth a look if you’re interested in seeing Regina Hall at her best but don’t expect a lot beyond the one great performance.

Run Time: 3:02
U.S. Release Date: -
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Adventure/Comedy
Director: Michael Anderson
Cast: David Niven, Cantinflas, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Newton

With its lazy, somnambulant pace and endless stream of cameos, "Around the World in 80 Days" seems to be unfolding in real time (although it boasts stunning visuals).

Although "The Swan" can boast impressive visuals, it’s less sure when charting Sol’s emotional journey.

Run Time: 1:35
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-13
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Peter Berg
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, Carlo Alban, Sam Medina

Delivers precisely what’s expected from a violent, escapist action film and does so with brevity and shock power.

As fresh and side-splitting today as it was when it entered theaters during a much different era.

Run Time: 2:00
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-20
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Romance
Director: Jon M. Chu
Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, Sonoya Mizuno

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.

Run Time: 1:26
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-10-30
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Augustine Frizzell
Cast: Maia Mitchell, Camila Morrone, Kyle Mooney, Joel Allen

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.
