ReelViews for movies starring 'James Franco'
Strikes an effective balance between satire and homage and mines the most common ore of the old-time Westerns.
At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, "Kin" rarely works and, when it does, it’s often for the wrong reasons.
Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.
"Why Him?" contains its share of effective humor but suffers from malaises that infect many modern comedies.
True Story's willingness to shed the procedural approach allows it to transcend the mediocrity that often infects tales of this sort.
