ReelViews for 'COMEDY' movies
Although the surface tone is breezy and cheeky, there’s a lot going on beneath the facade.
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.
"Three Billboards" lingers, not only because of the richness and complexity of the characters but because of the choices McDonagh makes in bringing this story to the screen.
There are worse ways to get some cheap laughs and the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with any rendition of “kumbaya.”
A little like "The Purge" in an office building with the best moments coming in the early-going.
Highlighted by an awards-worthy performance by Saoirse Ronan and structured around a light, witty script, the movie delivers a coming-of-age snapshot.
A plot-by-numbers sit-com movie that tries hard (perhaps too hard) to reproduce the elements that made its predecessor successful.
A tonal disaster – an awkward and ineffective attempt to blend dark comedy with social commentary.
Although sporadically amusing, it feels like a 20-minute short that was expanded to feature length to its considerable detriment.
