CHIPS (2017)

  CHiPS. Released: March 24, 2017. Directed by: Dax Shephard. Starring: Dax Shepard, Michael Peña, Vincent D’Onofrio. Runtime: 1h 40 min. Dax Shepard’s third directorial effort reboots 1977 TV cop drama CHiPS into a raunchy buddy cop comedy. It’s not the best comedy but it entertains for enough of its runtime. Larry Wilcox’s Jon Baker (Shepard) [...]

The Nut Job (2014)

Released: January 17, 2014. Directed by: Peter Lepeniotis. Starring: Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson. Runtime: 85 min.

(That's no compliment if you've seen "J&J".) [...]

Grown Ups (2010)

Release Date: June 25, 2010. Director: Denis Dugan. Stars: Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James. Runtime: 102 min. "Grown Ups" doesn't have the strongest plot; or any evident plotline, for that matter. It's really just a movie about... Five guys, who sound like they want to grow up, but they're really just big kids at heart. They're reuniting [...]

Bridesmaids (2011)

Release Date: May 13, 2011. Director: Paul Feig. Stars: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne. Runtime: 125 min. This film is usually very, very funny and features a breakout role from the charismatic Melissa McCarthy. However, I think it pans out like a traditional romantic comedy, with room for originality. Melissa McCarthy and other select characters really make [...]
