Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Marc Forster
Cast: Blake Lively, Jason Clarke, Ahna O’Reilly, Miguel Fernandez, Wes Chatham, Danny Huston

Despite an interesting premise, it fails to deliver much beyond a gradual descent into disinterest and watch-checking.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
Director: Scott Hicks
Cast: Addison Timlin, Jeremy Irvine, Harrison Gilbertson, Joely Richardson, Lola Kirke, Daisy Head, Hermione Corfield

Whatever small pleasures it may offer are wiped out by the frustrating sense of incompleteness that accompanies the arrival of the end credits.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Comedy
Director: John Hamburg
Cast: Bryan Cranston, James Franco, Zoey Deutch, Megan Mullally, Griffin Gluck, Keegan-Michael Key

"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).

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

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?
