Columbia Pictures Rated R for language throughout, sexual content, drug material, brief nudity and some language. Running time: 112 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. “22 Jump Street” is pretty much the exact same movie as “21 Jump Street.” It knows it, you know it, and it knows that you know it. […]
Just ridiculously entertaining. We all had a blast. See it, and then see it again to catch all the jokes you missed while you were laughing your ass off.
Jenny Slate is an adorable, self-deprecating mess in a star-making performance as a stand-up comedian who gets pregnant after a one-night stand.”Obvious Child” dares to make tough choices and stick with them, and it does so with humor and humanity.
We all went a little nuts over this charming little Swedish film about a trio of teenage girls who form a punk band in 1982 Stockholm. In its depictions of female friendship and restless youth, it’s funny and sad and true, with winning performances from its young cast.
Toni Collette is completely radiant as a smart and sexy but flawed Seattle music journalist in “Lucky Them.” She and Thomas Haden Church enjoy a great, kooky chemistry as a pair of mismatched friends on the hunt for a missing rock star. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

I laughed a lot throughout, particularly when MacFarlane is at his smartest with humor that subverts politics, pop culture and religion. And Charlize Theron is delightful in a rare […]
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.

Jon Hamm stars in this feel-good Disney sports comedy about the effort to take two young men from India and turn them into major-league pitchers in the United States. It’s pretty dull and by-the-numbers until it turns schmaltzy.
The boys and I had a lively conversation about the faith-based comedy “Moms’ Night Out” and the subsequent shitstorm the negative reviews have inspired.
Universal Pictures Rated R for pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity and drug use throughout. Running time: 96 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. I have been both of the people at the center of the conflict in “Neighbors.” I have been the drunk sorority girl who doesn’t want […]
