It’s amateur hour in “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor”, as Tyler Perry breaks out the weed whacker in order to write and direct this tale of infidelity and woe. Bad acting, bad dialogue, poor direction and a ridiculous story collide to bring you an ultimately laughable film.
Dreamworks Animation’s “The Croods” is easily the silliest, most cartoonish animated movie I’ve seen in a long time. It seemed to me to be even more squarely aimed at children than most modern animated offerings are nowadays.
Regardless, it’s fun, funny, brightly colored and spiritedly animated. It’s definitely a family friendly slice of entertainment.
It’s totally worth it to take your brood to “The Croods”.
Full of explosions, machine gun fire and hand to hand combat, all in support of an absolutely preposterous scenario, “Olympus Has Fallen” offers us big dumb summer movie fun in the first days of Spring.
Be forewarned: “Admission” is being marketed as a romantic comedy, but it most assuredly is not. Certainly, it has comedic moments, but they’re few and front-loaded.
Instead, “Admission” is a dramatic film with comedic undertones about a career oriented woman facing a mid-life crisis, who may or may not have just been brought into contact with the child she gave up for adoption back when she was in college.
Two stale Vegas magicians meet their match in the form of a performance artist who steals their audience. Old school and new collide in a battle to be Vegas’ top act.
Featuring a couple of egomaniacal jerks (played by Steve Carell and Jim Carrey) who do battle via magic acts, “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” is certainly a movie that will give you a laugh or two along the way, but might not be anything to rush right out and see.
“The Call” features Halle Berry as a 911 Operator who gets involved with a kidnapping in progress and attempts to talk the victim through a series of things she can do in order to help the police track her down.
Surprisingly, it puts together a halfway decent movie for 3/4 of its runtime.
Unfortunately, the final act is a ludicrous, laughable, let down.
