RogerEbert.com — Fun Mom Dinner

Fun Mom Dinner Movie ReviewI have been to many a Fun Mom Dinner in my life. I’m usually the ones who plans them, actually. So I am exactly the target audience for the raunchy, R-rated comedy “Fun Mom Dinner.” Unfortunately, it’s got moms and dinner but not much fun. My RogerEbert.com review.

RogerEbert.com — Person to Person

Person to Person Movie ReviewVarious characters populate “Person to Person,” but they rarely register as actual people. And while some of their storylines intersect throughout the course of a day in New York, they rarely connect in ways that have actual meaning. My RogerEbert.com review of this shaggy, meandering dramedy.

RogerEbert.com — Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth Movie Review“Lady Macbeth” only looks like a stuffy, refined period piece. While it is indeed beautiful, it’s also startling, with a central, powerhouse performance from 21-year-old Florence Pugh that constantly challenges how you feel about her title character.

RogerEbert.com — The Hero

The Hero Movie ReviewSam Elliott is Sam Elliott as Sam Elliott in “The Hero,” a sentimental and sporadically effective celebration of the veteran character actor. Director and co-writer Brett Haley is clearly aware that this dude is iconic, placing Elliott front and center for a rare leading role. But while it’s a pleasure to luxuriate in the silver-haired 72-year-old’s distinctively handsome features and deeply resonant voice, there’s not much to the character he plays or the story that surrounds him.

RogerEbert.com — Vincent N Roxxy

Vincent N Roxxy Movie Review“Vincent N Roxxy” is a nasty little piece of B-movie trash that lacks both the verve to grab you as a guilty pleasure and the artistry to be taken seriously as a dramatic thriller. It wastes talented actors who usually have a welcome presence on screen — Emile Hirsch, Zoe Kravitz, Emory Cohen and Zoey Deutch — in barely-there, go-nowhere roles. And it takes place in a thoroughly unpleasant slab of small-town Louisiana populated by idiot lowlifes whose primary characteristics are chain smoking and bad tattoos. My one-star RogerEbert.com review.
