ReelViews for movies starring 'Steve Carell'
Disappointingly shallow and superficial, recreating events from an earlier era as the Hollywood of today would like them to be remembered.
Despite featuring strong performances and containing some individually potent scenes, the film’s style keeps the viewer at arm’s length.
Using gallows humor, likable protagonists, and a variety of nonstandard filmmaking techniques, director Adam McKay maintains a high level of energy for more than two hours.
An example of how even the most promising animated franchises can hit a wall if allowed to continue too long.
