Too little about the film feels like real life and who wants a fantasy film that’s such a relentless downer?

Geraldine Viswanathan is the reason to see this by-the-numbers rom-com.

Silly, dumb, and completely nonsensical – exactly what one could reasonably expect from the movie and what the fans (given a choice) would demand.

Cast: Arrin Skelley, Daniel Anderson, Patricia Patts, Casey Carlson, Bill Melendez

At its best, it captures the flavor of the beloved comic strip gang but things start to drag after a jaunty first half-hour or so.

The movie is pure Dangerfield – a thinly-sketched narrative providing a clothesline onto which the comedian could pin a long string of gags and one-liners.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-08-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity, Drugs)

The final 30 minutes of this would-be Hitchcockian caper film prove unable to deliver on the promise of the early acts.

Run Time: 1:28
U.S. Release Date: 2020-07-10
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Gore, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Horror
Director: Jeffrey A. Brown
Cast: Liana Liberato, Noah Le Gros, Jake Weber, Maryann Nagel

The characters are generic and uninteresting and that neuters tension and suspense.

A brand of exploitation that feels surprisingly fresh considering how many tropes it recycles.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-19
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
Cast: Deborah Kerr, Flora Robson, Jenny Laird, Judith Furse, Kathleen Byron, Esmond Knight, Sabu, David Farrar, Jean Simmons, May Hallatt

The technical aspects – although impressive considering the special effects limitations of the era – represent a lukewarm reason to see the film and the storyline adds little in the way of a sweetener.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Romance/Comedy

The offbeat approach brings a freshness to a genre (the rom-com) that has become static and predictable.
