Kung Fu Panda 3

DreamWorks Animation Rated PG for martial arts action and some mild rude humor. Running time: 95 minutes. Three stars out of four. So vividly immersive is “Kung Fu Panda 3” — so vibrant, so tactile — it will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a fully realized world. And then once you’ve stepped […]

RogerEbert.com — How to Be Single

The ensemble rom-com “How to Be Single” manages the tricky feat of balancing bawdiness and sentimentality. It doesn’t do quite as good a job of connecting all its various story lines. But the cast is so winning, you may not mind, and there’s a moment toward the end that packs a surprising emotional wallop. My […]

RogerEbert.com — Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”: It’s “Pride and Prejudice” … with zombies. The “Pride and Prejudice” parts work fine. It’s the zombie bits that are a problem. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

RogerEbert.com — Fifty Shades of Black

I’m not saying it’s good. But this Marlon Wayans spoof of “Fifty Shades of Grey” isn’t quite as terrible as you might expect. And it may have something substantive to say, in between all the prosthetic penises and pop-culture references. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

RogerEbert.com — Sisters

The zippy, zingy chemistry of longtime collaborators and best friends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler keeps “Sisters” consistently entertaining, even when it grows a tad repetitive and overlong. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

The Ridiculous 6

Netflix Unrated. Running time: 119 minutes. Zero stars out of four. I’m gonna do away with this quickly, because why should I put more thought into “The Ridiculous 6” than the people who actually made it? That’s just nuts. But several of you guys asked whether I’d seen the latest Adam Sandler debacle, and so […]

RogerEbert.com — The Peanuts Movie

I am the target audience for “The Peanuts Movie.” I was all in. So it brings me no joy to report to you that it’s a rather safe repackaging of material you’ve seen before. Bring on the angry hordes. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

Hotel Transylvania 2

Sony Pictures Rated PG for some scary images, action and rude humor. Running time: 89 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. “Hotel Transylvania 2” is the greatest movie Adam Sandler and Kevin James have ever made together. I believe this is called “damning with faint praise,” given their dubious track record (“I […]

RogerEbert.com — Before We Go

When it came time for Chris Evans to direct his first film, he strayed far from the behemoth Marvel movies that made him a superstar. “Before We Go” is a walking-and-talking New York City romance in which Evans and Alice Eve co-star as strangers who connect in the middle of the night. Despite their individual […]

RogerEbert.com — American Ultra

The tricky combination of sweet, slacker romance and slick, super-violent action flick proves especially jarring in “American Ultra.” Blending such disparate genres requires a more deft touch than the one that’s on display here. My RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here
