Movies starring Jenny Slate

Aardvark

With a title seemingly designed to get the movie placement at the top of alphabetized lists, Aardvark is a hard-to-swallow drama about sibling rivalry, mental illness, and bad therapy. Cobbled together using clichés and contrivances, Brian Shoaf...

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3 is an example of how even the most promising animated franchises can hit a wall if allowed to continue too long. One can understand why Universal greenlit this film. The previous two (or three if you count the spin-off Minions)...

Gifted

Here’s a piece of advice: don’t watch a trailer for Gifted prior to seeing the film. This warning has nothing to do with spoilers; the trailer makes the movie seem like a cloying, paint-by-numbers story that no one in their right mind would...

Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis has the look and feel of a graphic novel adaptation, albeit with a few pages missing. With its flashy action sequences and Tarantino-wannabe vibe, the movie tries hard to be hip and edgy but ends up simply being uneven. Tonal shi...

Landline

Wedding family drama with rose-colored 1990s nostalgia, Landline provides an ensemble of solid performances and some affecting moments but is ultimately undone by a storyline that treads too-common ground for American indie (and French) films. ...

Secret Life of Pets 2, The

To the extent that there’s a difference between “big screen cartoons” and “animated features,” The Secret Life of Pets 2 comes closer to the former than the latter on the spectrum of non-live-action motion picture entertainment. The ...

Secret Life of Pets, The

About 20 minutes into The Secret Life of Pets, an entertaining but inconsequential animated movie, I was struck by a powerful feeling of déjà vu. It didn’t take long for me to ascertain the cause. The Secret of Pets is pretty much...

Venom

Venom represents the final result of a long-standing attempt by Sony Pictures to give the popular Spider-Man nemesis his own film. Influenced equally by the comic books and the Deadpool movies, Venom falls considerably short of the high bar s...

Zootopia

Zootopia is respectable animated fare - not nearly as good (or memorable) as the best of Disney/Pixar but significantly better than the majority of quick cash-grab offerings thrown out by studios to dominate the family film market. Although Zootopia...
