A stunning work of artistry and emotional heft that's difficult to shake and impossible to forget.
Brilliantly scripted and powerfully acted and deserves to be seen by all who care about great performances and emotional impact.

"Why Him?" contains its share of effective humor but suffers from malaises that infect many modern comedies.
An old-fashioned inspirational tale about the undertrodden overcoming.
Don’t bother venturing out to see the movie; stay home and play the game instead.
An odd movie but its central questions and dilemmas are compelling and there’s enough here of substance for the impressions to linger.
An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.
"Jackie" is more of a curiosity than a good film and, like Camelot, its impact is fleeting and nebulous.
Unable to generate an honest emotional response, the filmmakers resort to cheap trickery and heart-string rending music.
