Blades of Glory

Will Ferrell can be the most maddening of comedians. There are times when he's so funny it hurts to watch him. Then there are times when he's so unfunny it's painful in a different way. Consistency, thy name isn't Ferrell. Blades of Glory is pre...

Blockers

With its sex-related gags and pure raunchiness, Blockers provides enough R-rated humor to satisfy those who are growing tired of the tame PG-13 fare that has thus far populated the 2018 box office. (The film’s original title, Cockblockers, wa...

Blue Jasmine

It's all about Cate. Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen's latest, is a loose reworking of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. It's narratively uneven but the occasional lapses of focus are rescued by Cate Blanchett's riveting lead performance. Th...

Blues Brothers 2000, The

They're back, and this time they're not on a mission from God. Strictly speaking, however, only one of the original Blues Brothers has returned -- Dan Aykroyd's Elwood. His partner, Jake (played by the late John Belushi), died in prison, so n...

Book Club

A romantic comedy – any romantic comedy regardless of the ages, genders, or races of the participants – has two primary goals: generate laughter and give viewers at least a moment of smile-inducing giddiness. It’s all about being uplifti...

Booksmart

In a way, it’s surprising that it has taken this long for someone to make a female-oriented version of Greg Mottola’s 2007 high school comedy Superbad. Perhaps the best way to describe Booksmart, the assured directorial debut of actress O...

Borat

Overwhelmingly positive word of mouth can be a double-edged sword for a filmmaker. Although effusive praise builds anticipation, it can also elevate expectations to levels that cannot possibly be met. This is why some viewers who see a movie after...

Bottle Rocket

Bottle Rocket starts and finishes strong, but, somewhere in the middle, it loses its focus and its way. Concentrating on a trio of incredibly inept criminals, there are times when this film seems like Reservoir Dogs as directed by Kevin Smith (Cle...
