Bad Teacher

Bad Teacher takes a delicious premise and leaves a sour aftertaste. Despite the promise of something nasty and cutting, the film turns out to be as edgy as a dull razor with limp "raunchy" comedy and an unwillingness to push envelopes. The concept ...

Broken Hearts Gallery, The

If not for the high-energy performance of lead actress Geraldine Viswanathan, The Broken Hearts Gallery would feel like a lesser ‘90s-style rom-com where following a preordained path is more important than taking the time to show two people ...

Fallen

In the late 2000s and early 2010s, the cinematic YA flame burned hot and bright but, like many such fires, it quickly exhausted its fuel and was snuffed out by fatigued and uninterested audiences. Although YA novels continue to generate health...

Ice Harvest, The

There are those, including the distributor, who would like audiences to believe that The Ice Harvest is a comedy. At first glance, that's not so hard to accept. After all, director Harold Ramis was one of the Ghostbusters co-writers and scored a ...

Simple Plan, A

Beware things that are described as "simple." While this is not the central message of A Simple Plan, it's certainly a byproduct. From the real world, we all know that things which are supposed to be simple - a basic plumbing job, minor car repai...

Year One

Two weeks ago, I wrote that, while watching Land of the Lost, I felt a sense of depression. That feeling revisited me during Year One, an inexplicably unfunny comedy made by two people who have proven they can do much better: director/co-writer Ha...
