"Why Him?" contains its share of effective humor but suffers from malaises that infect many modern comedies.

Don’t bother venturing out to see the movie; stay home and play the game instead.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Mark Waters
Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Kathy Bates, Tony Cox, Christina Hendricks, Brett Kelly, Jenny Zigrino

At its best, it feels like an echo of its predecessor. At its worst, it’s unfunny, crass, and uncomfortable (not in a good way).

Run Time: 2:01

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Thriller

Cast: Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster, Ana Ularu

Watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Patton Oswalt

A paint-by-numbers, creatively bankrupt “comedy” emerging from a studio system that has largely forgotten what it means to be genuinely funny.

An awkward and unappealing mix of mismatched parts that doesn’t generate enough laughs to make it feel like anything other than a waste of 90 minutes.

With two better versions of this story readily available, why bother with this mediocre re-telling?

"Blair Witch" seems more like a pale homage than a new chapter to the saga.

Won't isn’t make anyone forget the 1959 Charlton Heston classic.

Gets props for kinetic energy and a couple of bravura performances but pretty much everything else is either mediocre or substandard.
