Too little about the film feels like real life and who wants a fantasy film that’s such a relentless downer?
The final 30 minutes of this would-be Hitchcockian caper film prove unable to deliver on the promise of the early acts.
Acting is the reason to see "Bombshell" and it starts with Charlize Theron.
A celebration of Mr. Rogers and the healing capabilities of his words and doctrine, the movie may not be splashy but it tugs effectively at the heart strings.
An effective recipe that's one-third Bruce Springsteen hagiography, one-third kitschy ‘80s recreation, and one-third feel-good father/son coming together.
When the end credits roll, it’s hard to decide whether the most appropriate feeling should be disgust, despair, or despondency.

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.
Never resorts to the kind of patronizing inspiration that has tripped up more than a few of these well-intentioned productions.
