ReelViews for movies starring 'Jason Sudeikis'
If you’re in high school (or have ever gone through the experience), you’ll laugh quite a bit, wince more than once, and relate from start to finish.
Deserves to be seen for all that’s good and original about it and for the distinctive way it uses monster movies and monster movie conventions.
Engages because the actors are sufficiently invested that they give breadth and depth to characters who are, for the most part, underwritten.
The central character is as small figuratively as he is literally, and that limits the movie’s capacity to enthrall and engage.
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.
"The Angry Birds Movie" is like the game - an opportunistic attempt to “strike while the iron is hot” that’s devoid of elements that would give it an extended life.
"Race" does a workmanlike job of bringing Jesse Owens to life and explaining his historical importance, but it fails to transcend the genre.
