"The Layover" is an appalling movie – an unpleasant, unwatchable example of why people no longer love romantic comedies.
A 90-second toy commercial is generally innocuous but stretch it out to 90 minutes and it can be a challenge to endure.
An ensemble of solid performances with some affecting moments is ultimately undone by a storyline that treads too-common ground for American indie films.
Despite the occasionally uneven pacing and some dramatically inert moments, the historical elements mesh effectively with the fictionalized action-oriented ones.
Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.
Witty, bright, and makes a great contrast/alternative to DC’s current line of serious live-action films.
Anyone who’s up for something ominous and unsettling could do worse than to choose "Life".

While "Logan Lucky" is 3/4ths of a very good movie, the final half-hour becomes narratively unfocused as it strives to tie up some loose ends.
Highlighted by an awards-worthy performance by Saoirse Ronan and structured around a light, witty script, the movie delivers a coming-of-age snapshot.
