Matt and I didn’t even have to use our AKs to review the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart mismatched-buddy cop comedy. But we did blast a few holes in it nonetheless.
“American Hustle” is absolutely one of the best films of the year in a year packed with great films. David O. Russell’s ’70s crime romp is ridiculously entertaining in all the best possible ways. My rare four-star RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here
We played a little catch-up with the excellent “Nebraska.” It’s beautifully shot and beautifully acted but brutally honest in its depiction of human nature. We all loved it.
Vince Vaughn climbs inside a blanket of warm, snuggly earnestness in the high-concept, feel-good comedy “Delivery Man.” It’s not exactly the best fit, as we discuss in our What the Flick?! review.

Phil Johnston is not easily offended. The writer of “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Cedar Rapids,” who’s working with Sacha Baron Cohen on a spy comedy that’s in development, is a dear friend of ours from our days in Brooklyn over a decade ago. One of the many things we love about him is that he […]
