The Do-Over

Netflix Unrated but contains graphic language, sex, nudity, violence and drug use throughout. Running time: 108 minutes. One half star out of four. So I actually made myself watch “The Do-Over” for a What the Flick?! review and I actually took notes because I’m a professional, dammit, so I figured, what the hell? Maybe I […]

What the Flick?! — Top Five

We all really enjoyed the shockingly great “Top Five,” the best film Chris Rock has made yet. The spirit, wit and bite of Rock’s standup work really shines through here.

RogerEbert.com — Blended

Shockingly, “Blended” isn’t as terrible as most recent Adam Sandler movies. There is a vague sense of tonal continuity. But it’s still yet another example of Sandler using the excuse of making a movie to go on a lavish vacation with his friends — this time, to South Africa. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review […]

What the Flick?! — Worst of 2013

What the Flick?! — Grown Ups 2

“Grown Ups 2” is a face full of deer piss first thing in the morning.
